Gaither Confident He'll Return vs. Browns - Ricky Henne
"With the injury coming about a week ago, having a few extra days to get healthy is appreciated," he said. "It’s definitely coming at a good time for me and the team. We had a little meltdown, but we’re going to rally and get back up. And personally, it’ll be good to help me heal up."
Rivers: "We Can Fix It and Correct These Mistakes" - Ricky Henne
"Despite how brutal the (last two) losses were, when you watch the tape, we can be awesome," he said. "Whether we do that is left up to us but there’s definitely a lot more good than bad on the field. It’s just that the bad, much like other games we’ve lost, has been worst at crucial times. These two were some of the worst. We can fix it and correct these mistakes."
Blurring the Line - Randall Munroe
People into masturbatory navel-gazing have a lot to learn about masturbation.
Teammates Have Faith in Rivers Rebound - Ricky Henne
"He’s a great quarterback," said Robert Meachem. "There’s no one else I’d rather have throwing me the ball. He’s a warrior. He’ll come back and put this behind him. There’s no doubt in my mind."
32 Observations: Week 6 - Nathan Jahnke
San Diego Chargers: There were only two games last year where Corey Liuget had two or more pressures. He has had two or more pressures in four of the past five games.
Snapshot: PBE, Offensive Tackles - Khaled Elsayed
To the surprise of no one, Batiste is the bigger liability, but Massie (who has given up one more sack) shouldn’t be given a free ride. They’re being bested by an undrafted free agent like Michael Harris – although the Charger has the third worst score, so he can hardly take comfort in that.
AFC West Stock Watch - Bill Williamson
What was more stunning Monday night, Peyton Manning’s play in the second half or Rivers'? While Manning was doing his part in an eventual 35-24 Denver win (the Chargers led 24-0 at the half), Rivers was doing his part in a terrible San Diego loss. He committed five of his six turnovers in the second half and two of those the five turnovers turned directly into two Denver touchdowns.
