Bolts from the Past: Reboot!


Ok, so my last attempt at this didn't work out quite the way I had hoped. But that's ok, you guys are patient right? RIGHT?!? Anyway, what I've decided to do is reboot the series and take a...

Bolts from the Past: Best and Worst of the San Diego Chargers


I love going through old game records and re-living the past. Maybe that's why I wrote this column all through the regular season. As part of that, I like comparing. When was the best of this? When...

Wild Card Saturday Open Thread


So it looks like I'm the only person capable of starting the first Wild Card Open Thread. Woo hoo! Should be fun for Houston fans, as they get to watch the first playoff game in franchise history....

Flashback: Oakland @ San Diego, November 10, 2011


This week sees our final 2011 edition of Flashback, ironically flashing back just a few weeks. We'll look at the last time the Chargers played, and lost to, the Oakland Raiders. It was in the...

Flashback: Detroit @ San Diego, December 16, 2007


Once again, dear friends, we step into our WABAC machine and look back to the last time the Chargers faced their upcoming opponent. Today, we're setting the dials to go all the way back to the 2007...

Flashback: Baltimore @ San Diego, September 20, 2009


Another week, another trip through the looking glass into the past. This time, we'll examine the last (and so far only) time the Chargers have matched up with the Harbaugh-Flacco lead Baltimore...

Flashback: San Diego @ Buffalo, October 19, 2008


After a brief moment last week, when we were able to look back on a victory, now we head back to the doldrums of defeat. I'm talking about the last time the San Diego Chargers played the Buffalo...

Flashback: Jacksonville @ San Diego, September 19, 2010


Let's flash back to a better time. A simpler time, when injuries weren't prevalent and the Chargers actually had a good team. I'm talking, of course, about Week 2 of the 2010 season, when the...

Flashback: San Diego @ Denver, October 9, 2011


We've reached that point. The point where we're flashing back to the last San Diego Charger win. Kind of hurts just to say it, right? The last time we Charger fans tasted victory was over 6 weeks...

Flashback: Chicago @ San Diego, September 9, 2007


At last! A flashback to a win! This one, like our other NFC North reviews, goes back to the stories 2007 season. Here, we're going to look at Norv's very first game as the Chargers' head coach, the...

Flashback: Oakland @ San Diego, December 5, 2010


This is another rough one, folks. As we all know, it's (a short) Raider week, and that means re-visiting last year's series with Oakland. As I'm sure we all remember, the Chargers not only lost a...

Flashback: San Diego @ Green Bay, September 23, 2007


This is another one of those flashbacks where we have to go back four years to find the last time the Chargers met their upcoming opponent. That's to expected, of course, with an NFC team. Here, we...

Flashback: Kansas City @ San Diego, September 25, 2011


Wow, that was fast. I feel like we just played the Chiefs. Oh, wait, that's because we did just play them a month ago, in San Diego. I was at that game, so my memory/viewpoint may be a bit skewed...

Flashback: New Jersey/A @ San Diego, January 17, 2010


Looking back that the last time the Jets and the Chargers met, otherwise known as "The Nate Kaeding Game".

Flashback: San Diego @ Denver, January 2, 2011


Ok, I'll admit it. I didn't watch this game. Not live, at least. The last game of the 2010 season, unfortunately, mattered only for draft positioning for the San Diego Chargers. On one hand, I...

What happened the last time the Chargers played the Dolphins?

Flashback: Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers, December 12, 2010

Dear Chargers Fans: The Importance of Perspective


Is it time for San Diego Chargers fans to panic? NO! Here's why.

Flashback: New England @ San Diego, October 24, 2010


I, for one, am glad that the Chargers managed not to choke away the game last weekend and came away 1-0. It means that the Chargers aren't staring 0-2 in the face heading across the country to play...

Flashback: San Diego @ Minnesota, November 4, 2007


A look back at the last time the Chargers played the Vikings. Not for the faint of heart.

Flashback: Arizona Cardinals @ San Diego Chargers, October 3, 2010


A recap of the last time the Chargers faced the Cardinals, and what has changed since then.

Blogging the NFL Rule Book: 2011 Changes


Here's a nice breakdown of all the rule changes going into effect for the 2011 season. A lot of them are tiny things that don't have a large impact, but here are some notables: - Kickoffs from the 35 yard-line. - An attempt to clarify the Calvin Johnson rule about maintaining possession while going to the ground. It fails. - The reintroduction of the "football move" requirement for completing a catch. - A tweak to the rules for kickoffs that go out of bounds.

Lockout Ending Soon?


Multiple reports are starting to filter out that the NFL owners and players are starting to get very close to an agreement that would end the labor dispute and allow the 2011 NFL season to begin on...

Labor Dispute Update


Since the 8th Circuit issued a permanent stay of the injunction lifting the lockout, there hasn't been a lot of movement on the legal front. The parties have exchanged briefs, and appeared for oral...

San Diego Padres first base prospect Anthony Rizzo is on a tear for Triple-A Tucson, hitting...


San Diego Padres first base prospect Anthony Rizzo is on a tear for Triple-A Tucson, hitting .361/.465/.889 in his last 10 games including five homers and four doubles. On the year, he has a .370/.448/.728 line, with 24 walks and 43 strikeouts in 173 at-bats. Some of this is PCL stat inflation from his friendly home park at Tucson, where he's hitting .408/.494/.816, but even in the road he's at .340/.411/.660. Scouting reports from PCL observers indicate that Rizzo is showing outstanding bat speed and has the strike zone well under control right now. He's even improved against left-handed pitching, which was a problem for him in the Red Sox system. Defense needs work: although he is mobile around the bag and is good at scooping throws, he's error-prone, committing eight gaffes already this year for a .980 fielding percentage, not good for a first baseman. Nevertheless, the Padres won't worry too much about the glove if he keeps hitting like this. They will need to find him a spot in the lineup soon.

John Sickles believes in Anthony Rizzo.
