Even a small chance is still a chance for these NFL hopefuls.

The Chargers signed 14 undrafted free agents following this year’s draft. That’s four more than last year’s haul and five less than 2020’s sizable group of 19.

Unlike most of the past decade, the Chargers roster is currently very strong with decent depth throughout. Positions that have been chronic weaknesses year-in and year-out for this franchise now look...

Just like the Anime reveal video, there are some nuggets to explore in this schedule

The 2022 NFL Schedule dropped last night and, as usual, the Los Angeles Chargers’ social media team absolutely killed the schedule reveal video. I’ve watched it at least a dozen times, but just like I took a deeper look at that video to find easter eggs, we should take a look at the actual schedule to see what interesting nuggets it holds as well.

Top 3 games on the Chargers 2022 schedule

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Beginning the year with two-straight games in the division? That’s a quick way to see if the offseason was all worth it.

The Chargers start the 2022 schedule with two-straight matchups against AFC West opponents. They get a small break in weeks three and four as they face a pair of AFC South opponents but then each week is pretty much a dog fight from there on out.

In fact, I’d argue that the hardest part of the schedule for the Chargers is the entire...

Good morning, Chargers fans!

The Chargers unveiled their 2022 schedule on Thursday night in one of the best ways I would have never expected them to go.

They did it by creating a video akin to an intro for an anime series and boy, let me tell you, this was ART.

Should we REALLY make our schedule release video an anime?

Trotter, and the rest of the NFL, for that matter.

In just two years as a professional football player, Justin Herbert has done a lot. Whether it’s setting franchise and NFL records, completing a plethora of dazzling and dang-near impossible passes, or simply showing the ability to will his team to victory on a week-to-week basis.

It’s for all of these reasons that, somehow, a quarterback for a team that hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2018...
