Serious Business: 9/7 San Diego Chargers Links

Full circle - Christopher Smith
C.J. Wallace scrapped for an NFL roster spot as an undrafted rookie in ’07, then lost his place by ’09. A one-year stint in the UFL last season preceded another training camp proving ground, and Wallace could play a key special teams role in San Diego.

Power Rankings underrate Chargers - Chris Sprow
Here's an interesting stat: Last year, San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding induced touchbacks on just four of 72 kickoffs. Kaeding is deadly accurate on field goals, but that was the one element of San Diego's special teams last season that couldn't be misidentified as the 11th plague. In his first preseason game taking kickoffs last week, Kaeding had two touchbacks, and none of his five kickoffs resulted in field position for the opposition beyond the 20-yard line.

Adrian Peterson recalls his record-setting game against San Diego - Jeremy Fowler
Adrian Peterson was willing to relive his NFL single-game rushing record of 296 yards on Nov. 4, 2007 against San Diego, but he made sure to vent some frustration first.

Diggs, others add experience at LB - Christopher Smith
The Chargers hope the combination of young talent and experienced veterans at linebacker will translate to production on the field.

NFL Regular Season Predictions: Pittsburgh Steelers to San Francisco 49ers - Erik Lambert
Slow starts plagued the San Diego Chargers for the last five years, and it caught up with them in 2010 when they missed the playoffs. Part of that problem is on quarterback Philip Rivers. He puts up monster numbers every year but struggles early in the season that ultimately affects how his team enters January. If the Chargers ever want to remove the "bridesmaid" cloud from over their heads they must ride Rivers to a quick jump out of the gate.
