NFL's Los Angeles Move Could Bring Divisional Realignment

If the Chargers and Raiders move to a shared stadium in Los Angeles—as currently appears to be the most likely outcome—the NFL will probably not want them continuing to share a division. That’s absolutely no problem, with both teams telling the league they’re willing to be moved if necessary.… » 8/18/15 11:20am 8/18/15 11:20am

I Don't See Any Way The Raiders Stay In Oakland

The NFL’s Los Angeles tarantella has felt interminable, but it has finally reached a critical stage. With three teams seeking to move, and the league hell-bent on relocating one or two of them, everything comes down to the battle between St. Louis, San Diego, and Oakland to tender their respective teams the most money… » 8/12/15 1:17pm 8/12/15 1:17pm

San Diego Offers $350 Million In Public Money For A New Chargers Stadium, NFL Wants More

You don’t even have to be particularly cynical to believe the NFL doesn’t actually want a team in Los Angeles—it just loves having the helpful L.A. bogeyman around to blackmail cities into throwing taxpayers’ millions at owners to get them to stay. St. Louis has done its part, waving $400 million in public funds… » 8/10/15 4:27pm 8/10/15 4:27pm

Watch Sydney Seau's Tribute To Her Father At His Hall Of Fame Induction

Junior Seau told his daughter Sydney before his death that he wanted her to speak on his behalf if he ever made it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Hall wasn’t having any of that, though they eventually relented and gave the 21-year-old a few minutes to talk about her dad. She notably doesn’t mention his… » 8/08/15 10:14pm 8/08/15 10:14pm

Junior Seau's Family Banned From Speaking At His Hall Of Fame Induction

Junior Seau’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month will feature a video celebrating his on-field accomplishments, but no mention of his football-caused brain injuries or his self-inflicted fatal gunshot wound in 2012. It also will not feature any words from his family members. » 7/24/15 4:05pm 7/24/15 4:05pm

The Chargers Will Retire LaDainian Tomlinson's Number

At halftime of San Diego’s Week 14 Sunday night game, LaDainian Tomlinson will be inducted into the team’s hall of fame and become just the fourth Charger to have his jersey retired. I’m sure it’ll be a lovely ceremony, but more importantly, this is a great excuse to watch some highlights of one of the greatest… » 6/10/15 4:30pm 6/10/15 4:30pm

Carson City Council Bypasses Public Vote, Approves $1.7 Billion Stadium

The City Council in Carson, California voted 3-0 tonight to approve a planned $1.7 billion stadium that would house both the Raiders and Chargers, according to the AP. Council members decided to bypass a public vote on the stadium project, following the shitty example of the City Council in nearby Inglewood, who want… » 4/22/15 12:37am 4/22/15 12:37am

Is This Philip Rivers's Last Year With The Chargers?

That vaunted quarterback class of 2004 will turn 34 this year—right around the age, if you're a good-to-great QB like Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, or Philip Rivers, you get that last longish-term contract to set you for life. Roethlisberger got his extension; Manning's is likely coming soon. But Rivers has made… » 3/18/15 9:25am 3/18/15 9:25am

The Chargers Are Still Trying To Hide Philip Rivers's Injury

After Antonio Gates spoke out of class and revealed that his quarterback has been dealing with a "severe rib injury," the Chargers closed ranks. Rivers said he was fine. His coach said he wasn't injured. Gates claimed he had been misquoted. Then, yesterday, Rivers showed up on the injury report with a "chest injury." » 11/20/14 9:42am 11/20/14 9:42am

Branden Oliver Is San Diego's New, Improved Darren Sproles

The Chargers looked stacked at running back before the season started. Ryan Mathews would lead, Danny Woodhead would find some carries and work as a frequent pass-catcher, and Donald Brown would do... something—So nice to have you, Donald! By Week 5, Mathews, Woodhead, and Brown were sidelined by injury. That's fine,… » 10/23/14 4:57pm 10/23/14 4:57pm
