Today Melvin Gordon’s single season rushing record was broke seven days after rushing for 408 yards in three quarters last week. Well while Gordon lost one record he was able to break another today.

You Can’t Let Go ‘Cause You’re Afraid To Fall

I think it’s safe to say that no one was pleased with how the Chargers played on Sunday. But at least we didn’t lose. I’m sure Kansas City would trade our performance for theirs last night if it resulted in a win. Like many Justice Leaguers, I ended up watching that game and having to root for Oakland. It sucks, I know. I also watched a fair amount of Monday’s game, which...

Anyone can pick games. Whether selecting winners or making guesses against the spread, it’s essentially an exercise in flipping a coin. But providing some specifics about what’s going to happen in a game, detailing how things are going to play out, takes some thought, imagination and guts. And it actually provides some insight into what’s going to transpire on Sunday and Monday...

San Diego Chargers HC Mike McCoy is safe, but these 10 coaches could be fired

If the NFL season ended right now, with most teams having played 10 games, the playoff match-ups would be interesting. Some of the usual suspects (New England and Denver) would be taking part, while some preseason contenders (Seattle and San Francisco) would be on the outside looking in. Some surprise teams (Detroit and Kansas City) would be playing, while others (Miami and Buffalo...

Raider Nation takes over San Diego for the annual 9th home game

Raider Nation invaded San Diego this past weekend for what most fans call the Oakland Raiders’ ninth home game.  It is most definitely one of my favorite weekends of the year.  Just warms the heart to see so many Raiders fans in SD.  It didn’t seem to be as crowded this year as it was last year, but we had a blast and hey, rookie Khalil Mack finally got his first career sack...

Antonio Gates: Rivers injury comments taken out of context

Antonio Gates spent some time on Monday doing laughable damage control following his revelation that teammate Philip Rivers is playing through a rib injury.

Raiders & Chargers Fans Huge Brawl (Video)

I’m convinced that Raiders fans will brawl with just about any other team’s fans just cause. The latest is at the Chargers game on Sunday. A group of Chargers and Raiders fans decided to brawl in the stands. Even a woman got in the fight. The Chargers fans were in full swing mode as well, so I’m not going to put it all on the Raiders fans. Stay classy people. [h/t ProFootballZone]

Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers: 2014 Week 11 NFL Pick

Oakland Raiders (0-9) at San Diego Chargers (5-4) I’m completely split on this one. On one hand, this seems like a perfect spot for the Chargers to bounce back off of back-to-back big losses on the road in Denver and Miami. Despite those two losses, they are still significantly better than the Raiders, to the point where I think we’re getting some line value with them as only...

After missing the previous seven games with a knee injury, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is finally expected to return to the gridiron in week 11, marking his first in-game appearance since week 2. Despite his return to health, Mathews may not simply just return to fantasy football relevance, since in that time, rookie Brandon Oliver has taken over as the starting...

Fantasy Football Week 11 Player Rankings: Is Ryan Mathews a Top 15 RB?

Most fantasy owners (hopefully) drafted Ryan Mathews with the intention that he’d either be their No. 3 running back or flex option every week, but unfortunately the oft-injured Chargers ball-carrier has provided absolutely nothing in 2014. Mathews is slated to return in Week 11 from a 9-week absence after a knee injury in Week 2 Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

This happens a lot in boxing. You get hit with a shot you didn’t see and momentarily your brain malfunctions and your body parts have a mind of their own. Addae stayed in the game, so hopefully like a boxer he was just buzzed and didn’t have a concussion.
