Watch: Kobe Bryant shares Mamba mentality during inspirational speech to Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers are cruising right along with a 7-2 record, which ranks them at No. 2 in the AFC West. But a special guest who attended the Chargers practice on Friday advised the team to not focus on their standing. Instead, NBA legend and former Los Angeles Laker, Kobe Bryant told the team to focus on the moment because “7-2 don’t mean s*** do it?” pic.twitter.com/63b7DenUER — Los Angeles Chargers (@Chargers) November 17, 2018 He kept his pep talk very blunt and said for...

Four fringe Hall of Fame QBs who deserve to get in

In today’s day and age there’s a lot of debate about who is and who isn’t worthy of getting into the Hall of Fame. Of course, there are the four surefire Hall of Fame quarterbacks still playing. They include: Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger. All four of those players have been extraordinary during their careers. Brady has five Super Bowl rings. Brees became the NFL’s all-time leading passer this year and is one of four quarterbacks in NFL history with over...

What lies ahead for the Bolts?

The time for the playoff push is right now.

The NFL season is a long one. Sundays go by quick, but the days in between make it a long season. A lot can happen, things can change, there is always a possibility for a turn of events.

The Los Angeles Chargers started a little slower than we would have liked. However, they have been firing on all cylinders since their Week 3 loss against the 9-1 Rams. Philip Rivers is playing at an MVP-caliber level, Melvin Gordon has established himself as an...

Keenan Allen’s breakout game is coming Sunday

Wide receivers can make or break a team’s offense. When a running game is struggling to gain yards on the ground, an offensive coordinator can try to approach the attack through the air by targeting a large-framed pass catcher downfield. Even a screen pass can turn from a short-yard gain into a massive growth in production with the right receiver catching the ball.

Names such as Texans’ DeAndre Hopkins, Steelers’ Antonio Brown, Falcons’ Julio Jones, and Saints’ Michael Thomas...

Bosa, Chargers preach patience with return

Joey Bosa practiced again Thursday, but his availability for Sunday's game remains up in the air after he missed the first nine games of the season with a bruised left foot. If he does take the field, he'll likely be limited to about 10-15 plays.

POWER RANKINGS: Week 11 Roundup

The Chargers are officially Juggernauts (well, Hulkbusters!)

The Chargers have been on a roll lately. Even after questionable starts in both 2017 AND 2018, the Bolts really seem to get into a groove by mid-season. What separates the men from the boys, however, is how they close their season. Here, an inch or two after mid-way, the Chargers are among the elite of the NFL from most every perspective. After being a near-unanimous #5 for two straight weeks, they jumped up this week due almost...

And how did the Degenerate Gambler fare last week?

Another week, another win! That’s great for the LA Chargers, but how about those who put a little bit more on the line than just their team pride? And with that we meet back with the Degenerate Gambler, our stabilizing force when things seem to be going just a little too well.

For the uninitiated, the Degenerate Gambler is exactly what it says on the tin. He is a Southern California native that no longer gets his kicks by just merely...

Chargers at Steelers flexed to Primetime

The Chargers are beginning to turn heads. And now the world will be able to watch.

Someone once said, “If you build it, they will come.”

For Los Angeles Chargers fans, the likely comparison is “If you win, they will put you on primetime.”

News broke today as the NFL has come to agreement with CBS and NBC to flex the Chargers Week 13 game at Pittsburgh for a 5:20pm PT kickoff. This will be the second Chargers game the NFL has flexed into primetime. Two weeks ago, the Chargers week...

Chargers’ Joey Bosa to take part in limited practice Wednesday

The Los Angeles Chargers may be getting closer to having one of their stars return to the field. According to coach Anthony Lynn, pass rusher Joey Bosa will practice on a limited basis on Wednesday, a major step in his return from a foot injury. Bosa almost certainly won’t play this weekend, and will need a good amount of time to get back in game shape after missing the entire season up to this point. This is, however, a clear sign that he should be able to play this season barring any...

Chargers’ Joey Bosa returns to practice

Joey Bosa could be nearing a return to the field. The star linebacker joined the Chargers for practice on Wednesday, albeit in a limited capacity. Bosa still may need time time to get in football shape, but it’s a positive development. Bosa, 23, has been sidelined with a bone bruise all year long. Initially, doctors were hopeful that he would be able to suit up for Week 9, but the injury took longer than expected to heal. The Chargers ranked third against the pass last season thanks in...

Chargers sign LB Tre’Von Johnson, place Denzel Perryman on IR

With starting inside linebacker Denzel Perryman lost for the season, the Chargers needed to make a roster move. That move has been made in the form of Tre’Von Johnson. Per the Chargers team site:

The 6-2, 232-pound linebacker originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Arizona Cardinals in 2017 out of Weber State. He was waived during final roster reductions, and subsequently spent the majority of last season on the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad before being promoted...
