The quarterback controversy of this past week was Bills coach Sean McDermott getting an itchy trigger finger and benching an underwhelming-if-not-terrible Tyrod Taylor. Taylor was demoted in favor of rookie fifth-round draft pick Nathan Peterman, who the team wishes could be its franchise QB of the future.
Los Angeles’s Travis Benjamin could have had only a minor miscue on his record if he had stayed where he was on the field after he picked up his own muffed punt, but nah, he had to try and create something better. In doing so, he inexplicably ran backwards almost 10 yards into his own end zone, getting predictably…
The announced attendance for the Eagles-Chargers game in Carson, California yesterday was 25,374. It seemed like most of those in attendance were not there for the home team.
Man, Philip Rivers is pissed.
When we last saw the Chargers play at “home” in Carson, California, nobody cared. Today, though, brings much better news—there are plenty of passionate fans who came out to the Chargers-Eagles game today! They’re just not from Los Angeles.
Dean Spanos and the Los Angeles Chargers recently asked the Federal Aviation Administration to grant what is called a temporary flight restriction over StubHub Center on Chargers game days, arguing that an airplane flying over an arena packed with NFL fans is an inherently dangerous proposition. Of course, that’s not…
Chargers superfan Dan Jauregui—better known as Boltman, the persona he’s adopted at games for decades—is, uh, extremely frustrated after briefly being told that he would be ejected if he did not remove his mask during his first game at the recently relocated team’s new home stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The Los Angeles Chargers are back in town and nobody gives a shit. They can’t even sell out a soccer-specific stadium and home fans are getting drowned out by people cheering for Jay Cutler. Mayor Eric Garcetti, a jackass who helped bring the Olympics to town, even admitted that the city didn’t really need two NFL…
Sunday saw the return of the Los Angeles Chargers, their first home game since 1960, and no one’s very excited about it.
On a day where the Chargers honored their latest Hall of Famer, LaDainian Tomlinson, another legend cemented his place in history. In the third quarter of L.A.’s game against Miami, Antonio Gates caught his 112th career touchdown catch, passing Tony Gonzalez for the most ever by a tight end and getting piled onto by…
Smart not to worry about Cutler tackling any of the guys he throws picks to.
Given the Broncos’ roster, it feels like the team’s wins this season will follow a similar pattern: The defense will irritate opposing offensive lines and smother the life out of the game, while the thoroughly average offense tries to scrape together points. That’s how Monday’s date with the Chargers went for roughly…
The San Diego Chargers are no more. The team plays its first game since 1960 as the Los Angeles Chargers tonight, and they will be down at least one fan when they step onto the field in Denver: Chargers Twerk Girl.
The Rams and Chargers held a joint practice on Wednesday, and over the course of a two-hour scrimmage, three separate fights broke out.
Former NFL great LaDainian Tomlinson was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame tonight, and he kicked off his time in Canton with a moving speech about his heritage, his family history, and his vision for a future in which the country could come to work towards “the highest ideals of mankind.”
Some people are fans of the Los Angeles Chargers. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the Los Angeles Chargers. This 2017 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
On Saturday, LaDainian Tomlinson will be in Canton getting inducted into the Hall of Fame. Two of his longtime Chargers teammates, Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates, will not be there to cheer them on, though it appears they’d sure like to be.
After a frustrating rookie season in which he appeared in just one game for Buffalo, Cardale Jones has been traded to the Los Angeles Chargers in exchange for a draft pick. As ESPN’s Adam Schefter told Mike and Mike this morning, the quarterback wasn’t exactly sad to hear the news:
