NFL Videos: Top 10 controversial calls
Fans disagree with calls every week but which call goes down as the most debated of all-time?
Chargers sign pass-catching TE McMichael - Union-Tribune
The Chargers waited until now to sign him so that he would not affect their compensatory draft pick balance in 2011. Having lost Brandon Manumaleuna and Kassim Osgood in free agency, the Chargers can expect a likely sixth-round pick next year.
Critic of mayor alleges Chargers trip to Denver violated campaign law - Angela Lau
An Escondido citizen has filed a complaint against Mayor Lori Holt Pfeiler with California’s political watchdog, the Fair Political Practices Commission. Robroy Fawcett, a critic of the mayor, alleged in his May 21 complaint that Pfeiler did not correctly report gifts from the Chargers when she took a trip in November with the team to watch it play the Broncos.
Early-impact rookies - Mel Kiper - ESPN Insider
Ryan Mathews: San Diego traded up to get him, then Norv Turner came out and said the Chargers would probably hand him the ball 250-plus times. Mathews is a really tough player in short-yardage situations, as he gets good enough leverage and has always loved running between the tackles, so he's not just an impact guy, he's quite literally a fantasy target and a player who should be over 1,000 yards as a rookie if he holds up.
Where every NFL team ranks in turnover - Mike Sando - ESPN
The chart shows how many Week 17 starters, backups and players from injured reserve remain with their 2009 teams. The retention rate divides those totals by the sum of 53 plus all players who were on IR lists in Week 17. The starter totals can be somewhat misleading for teams that rested key players before the playoffs, but the retention rates apply equally. Every team had 53 players on its roster in Week 17.
