An out of character +Houston Texans team allowed the +Chargers to earn a critical win for their playoff hopes in Week 12.
The Chargers’ 1-4 road record entering Week 12’s battle with the Texans combined with Houston’s sparkling 5-0 mark at home provided a daunting scenario for a team needing to win out in order to have any hope for a playoff berth. Well, as it turned out, the Bolts’ slim postseason prayers maintained a shred of […]

Winnable road games and key divisional matchups at home give the +Chargers one last shot at mounting a late-season playoff push.
After a week away from the field to vent frustrations about what’s transpired over the past 10 weeks of action, the Chargers can hopefully enter their Week 12 battle with the Texans rejuvenated both physically and mentally. And if that is the case, perhaps the final nail in the possible postseason coffin has yet to […]

The bye week provides the +Chargers with the perfect opportunity to plan out the dismissal of both #MikeMcCoy and #TomTelesco this offseason.
It’s often said that dysfunction within an organization trickles down from the top. While it may be difficult to facilitate the sale of the team by the Spanos family, the individuals employed directly under those folks in charge should be a part of the purge coming soon. Both general manager Tom Telesco and head coach […]

Injuries have already destroyed the +Chargers this season, but the latest casualty with #BrandonMebane might be the most crushing blow.
Blaming bad luck for things like Mike McCoy’s repetitive mismanagement of in-game situations or the team’s lack of ball security is not at all accurate. Where the Chargers’ epic misfortune does come into play, however, is with the ever-growing injury report. It wasn’t bad enough for the team to lose key guys in the preseason, […]

#MelvinGordon running with determination gives the +Chargers hope in their push for a playoff spot in the watered-down AFC.
Melvin Gordon made it easy to be critical of him heading into the 2016 season. The second-year pro out of Wisconsin had a disappointing rookie season for the being the second running back taken in the 2015 NFL Draft. He scored zero touchdowns on 217 touches, but those numbers seem like a lifetime ago just […]

#MikeMcCoy may give the +Chargers an advantage over #AdamGase and the +Miami Dolphins in Week 10.
Most chatter about Mike McCoy this season has been of the negative variety, so it seems about time to give the head coach who began his tenure in San Diego with so much promise a bit of positive coverage. The Chargers will clash with the Dolphins in Week 10 fresh off of a Tuesday defeat […]

#LamarMiller must be the +Chargers' top priority in Week 12 against the +texans.
As the Chargers prepare for the Texans this week, the idea of Brock Osweiler actually beating the Bolts seems remote at best. Therefore, it makes sense for the defense gameplan to involve a sold out approach to stopping the run at any cost and forcing the game onto the Houston quarterback’s shoulders. Of course, that’s […]

A young, ball-hungry defense provides hope for a bright future in San Diego—or wherever the +Chargers ultimately call home.
It’s been a whirlwind this season for the Chargers on defense, but there are plenty of reasons for future optimism with this group of young talent. Though defensive coordinator John Pagano continues to be the albatross around the neck of all 11 guys on that side of the ball on any given play, the youth […]

The +Chargers' offensive line has been a nightmare in 2016, and there's no denying the need for some serious retooling this offseason.
Anyone watching Sunday’s game with even an inkling of football knowledge could tell just how badly the Chargers were abused up front on offense. From guys breaking through to stop the run to Philip Rivers having to run for his life each and every dropback, the Bolts showed a serious need along the offensive line. […]

Week 10 was both memorable and a week to forget for #PhilipRivers and the +Chargers in classic 2016 fashion.
On a day when Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers passed John Elway for eighth-most touchdown passes in NFL history, it seems unthinkable that he could be the goat and the primary reason why San Diego blew yet another fourth-quarter lead in this already disappointing 2016 season. But that is what happened against the Dolphins on Sunday, […]

The +Chargers must slow down #JayAjayi and the +Miami Dolphins' red-hot rushing attack if they want to reach .500 at the bye week.
After containing the potent Titans’ rushing attack last week, the Chargers don’t get a break in Week 10 against the Dolphins. No, it’s actually quite possible that slowing down Miami’s one-back wrecking crew over the past three weeks, Jay Ajayi, will be even more difficult than the previous task. Following a slow start to the […]

The +Chargers have to feel pretty good about sticking with Rivers instead of hitting the reset button with Mariota back in 2015 after their win on Sunday.
There was a time leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft when the hottest rumor going had the Chargers sending Philip Rivers and their first-round pick (No. 16 overall) to the Titans in a package that would include other assorted picks for the right to select Marcus Mariota as their franchise quarterback. Instead, the Bolts’ […]
