Chargers LAtely Ep. 23: Bye week awards and Jaguars preview

Photo by Harry How/ It’s finally game week! I’m joined once again this week by my friend and Chargers Wire editor Gavino Borquez to give out “bye week awards” to a number of players before we discuss this week’s matchup against Gardner Minshew and the 1-5 Jaguars. We did record a whole bit about Big Ten prospects that Chargers fans should keep an eye on since their season is starting tonight with Illinois taking on Wisconsin, but Zoom went ahead and cut off our recording right as we began discussing the topic. So I apologize for falling short on what I initially promised, but...

3 keys to a Chargers victory over the Jaguars

3 keys to a Chargers victory over the Jaguars

Photo by Chris Graythen/ It’s time to get right on Sunday. When the Chargers take the field against the Jaguars in SoFi Stadium, they’ll be looking to leave with their first win inside their new stadium and I don’t think they’ll have a better shot than this for another couple weeks. The Jaguars are currently 23rd in total yards offensively (351.2) and 28th in total yard allowed on defense (414.5). That bodes well for a Chargers offense who didn’t find it all that hard to move the ball against two of the better defense in the NFL (Bucs/Saints). The ground game might be able to...

Chargers Daily Links: Michael Davis loves the increase in man coverage

Photo by Harry How/ Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. On yesterday’s media call with players and coaches, cornerback Michael Davis lit up when he was asked his thoughts on the Chargers calling a lot more man coverage this year compared to previous seasons where they’ve been one of the league’s most zone-heavy teams. As a 6’2, 196-pound defender, Davis loves utilizing his speed and length to give him an upper-hand when manned up. But even in zone coverage, his length is a big reason why he was signed back in 2017. All you need to do is look at his...

Chargers land top TE prospect in early 2021 mock draft

Photo by Alexis Greaves/Collegiate Images/ I’ve honestly never been upset when analysts do early mock drafts. I like the content and it helps me keep up with top college prospects while my head is deep into NFL football. So today I’m bringing you guys another early mock but this one is especially intriguing. Most mocked prospects to the Chargers in these exercises have been offensive tackle and maybe the occasional wide receiver. However, author Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports gave the Chargers a top player at a new position to think about in his latest mock. Funny enough, it’s actually...

Through the first six weeks of the season, the Chargers are running with a Nickel package on defense on over 80% of their snaps. For those who still don’t know what that means, the Nickel package incorporates five defensive backs on the field, which usually leaves two linebackers and four defensive lineman. So far, rookie Kenneth Murray and Kyzir White have held down those two backer spots, totaling 321 and 284 snaps played thus far. Behind them is veteran Denzel Perryman who is...
