San Diego Chargers Daily Links: January 19, 2012

SB Nation Officially Opposes SOPA - Chris Mottram
Vox Media -- the parent company of SB Nation -- is officially opposed to SOPA. The bill as drafted is overly broad, vaguely worded, and gives rise to a number of significant concerns:

Kaeding ahead of schedule, looks forward to resuming role - Kevin Acee
Nate Kaeding has been kicking for three weeks and is confident he will be better than ever when he returns as the Chargers placekicker in 2012. Yes, when he returns.

Fourth Charger Headed to Pro Bowl - Michael Gehlken
A fourth San Diego Chargers player will receive an invite to the 2012 Pro Bowl. It's only a question of which one. Based on the result of Sunday's AFC Championship, either Chargers running back Ryan Mathews or wide receiver Vincent Jackson will lock up a Hawaii roster spot for the Jan. 29 All-Star game.

Is Philip Rivers a Genius? Is Eli Manning? - LobShots
I’m paraphrasing here, but this is what Ben Higgins on XTRA1360 said yesterday on my drive home, "The question you have to ask yourself is this: How many Super Bowl titles would Eli Manning have if he was with the Chargers instead of the Giants? If you come up with any answer other than ZERO… you’re an idiot."

Ticket prices remain flat - Christopher Smith
The Chargers will not increase the cost of season tickets for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year.

Winning is priority for Spanos - Christopher Smith
A consistent theme prevailed Tuesday during a 50-minute conference call between Chargers President Dean Spanos and nearly 5,000 season ticket holders. Spanos expressed a commitment to winning and will consider every avenue to return to the playoffs.

Talking Twitter With Chargers PR Guy - Ernie Padaon
With some of the recent news of our players making noise on twitter, with their "fake fans" and "#LosAngelesChargers" comments, I thought it would be nice to get some thoughts from the Chargers Director of Public Relations, Bill Johnston, on the subject. I sent him out some questions and here was his responses:

Chargers Eyeing Alabama WR Darius Hanks - Ernie Padaon
Chargers scout is all over Alabama WR Darius Hanks after a great day two of practice. — Joe Everett (@RookieDraft) January 17, 2012

Spanos to Bolts fans: "Can't do it without you" - Matthew T. Hall
Chargers president, CEO and owner Dean Spanos fielded questions from season ticket holders during an hour long conference call Tuesday afternoon.

Breaking down Kiper's mock draft - Bill Williamson
The offensive line may be an area of immediate need if guard Kris Dielman, tackle Marcus McNeill and center Nick Hardwick don’t come back. So, this selection makes sense. But there is also a chance the offensive line question will be answered by the draft. If so, the Chargers would look for defense help early.

Baby penguins welcomed at Sydney Aquarium Photos - Yahoo! News
Three baby penguins were released into the Sydney Aquarium on Jan. 18 in Sydney, Australia, and reunited with their parents for the first time since birth.
