My Experience Covering a Tijuana Xolos Match for EVT

January 29, 2017

Last night I had a great experience covering a Mexican Soccer match for the first time in my career. Through the years I have heard many things about the atmosphere at “estadio caliente”, and yesterday I finally got a taste of it firsthand. I arrived early in order to get to the press box on time. All team personnel were helpful and kind, and I wish to thank them for…


Joey Bosa’s Rookie Season Was Productive

January 7, 2017

Last spring, the Chargers had the 3rd overall pick in the NFL draft and many pundits thought San Diego would pick either Ronnie Stanley or Laremy Tunsil. But Tom Telesco and the Chargers’ front office ended up drafting Joey Bosa from “The” Ohio State University. The former Buckeye had a stellar college career as he ended up with 26 sacks and 51 tackles-for-loss during his time in Columbus. When he…


KYO (Know Your Opponent) Week 17: Kansas City Chiefs @ San Diego Chargers

December 29, 2016

The last time San Diego played Kansas City, it was the season opener and a lot of Chargers fans had high hopes for the 2016 season. But due to injuries, shaky quarterback play, and awful coaching, this 2016 season has been a huge disappointment for the Chargers. The season reached a new low on Christmas Eve, as the Bolts lost to the previously winless Cleveland Browns. This Sunday, the Bolts…

Last Sunday at the Q, the San Diego Chargers lost a gut-wrenching game to their bitter rival Oakland Raiders, in a game that felt much like a funeral due to the huge amount of Raiders’ fans that infiltrated Qualcomm Stadium.

2016 Las Vegas Bowl Recap: Aztecs Win 34-10

December 17, 2016

The last game of the season for the San Diego State Aztecs was a very interesting matchup against the Houston Cougars, in the always wild and crazy Las Vegas Bowl. Houston has been a little tough to figure out this year, as they have two of the most unlikely victories this season in CFB, beating both Oklahoma and Louisville, who were ranked #3 at the time. At the same time…


KYO (Know Your Opponent) Week 15: Oakland Raiders vs San Diego Chargers

December 15, 2016

  Last Sunday, the San Diego Chargers traveled to Carolina and dropped a game to the Panthers, in a really poor showing by the Bolts. Philip Rivers was abused all game and the team turned the ball over five times. Joey Bosa and Melvin Gordon left the game due to injury and the season continued to roll on in a tragic way. This week, the team returns home to face…

Week 13 Recap: San Diego Chargers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

December 5, 2016

Yesterday afternoon the San Diego Chargers were fighting for their season. A win would have kept their playoff hopes alive, a loss assured their season was all but over. The game started rather well for the Chargers as they drove the length of the field to score a touchdown on their first possession. Tampa Bay seemed to be on its heels on defense early in the game. On the Bucs’…


KYO (Know Your Opponent): Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs San Diego Chargers

December 1, 2016

Last Sunday, the San Diego Chargers played a low scoring game against the Houston Texans. In last weeks’ KYO, we said that the key to winning the game was putting the ball in the hands of Brock Osweiler, and the Bolts did just that, as they got out of Texas with a win. This Sunday, the Chargers return to the Q to play the surprising Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs…


KYO (Know Your Opponent) Week 12: Houston Texans

November 25, 2016

  Last week the San Diego Chargers were on a bye, which means that hopefully some key players will be back on the field for this Sunday. This week the Chargers travel to the heart of Texas to play the unpredictable Texans. Houston is coming off a short week, having played Monday night against the Raiders down in Mexico City, so maybe the Chargers are playing them at the right…


Position by Position Grades for the San Diego Chargers at the Bye Week

November 18, 2016

  The San Diego Chargers bye week is here, which obviously means there will be no football this Sunday for the fans of the team. In the spirit of the bye week, we figured it would be a good idea to grade how each position has performed up to this point for the team. THE OFFENSE Many key injuries have stunted the flexibility of the offense. Steven Johnson, Jeff Cumberland,…
