Future bright for Chargers' Kendall Reyes - Scott Bair
As a 220-pound receiver at Nashua (N.H.) High School North, Reyes would celebrate big moments with a back flip. That tradition won't be part of an NFL sack dance. "No way man," Reyes said. "I don't think I would try that with pads on, not at 300 pounds anyway. I was a lot lighter back then."
Broken wrist puts Chargers long snapper Windt out for season - Scott Bair
Windt was officially lost for the season on Tuesday, and is expected to undergo surgery on the ailing joint. The Chargers placed him on injured reserve and signed Kyle Nelson in a corresponding move.
Stanford Shows Oregon Its Own Brand of Old-School Football - Chris Brown
That’s not complex analysis, but to me that is why Stanford played great defense. Time and time again, I saw players like A.J. Tarpley, Ben Gardner, Trent Murphy, and Chase Thomas take on a blocker, discard him like an empty soda bottle, and stuff an Oregon runner for no gain or a loss. Blocks that had sprung long touchdowns for weeks led nowhere.
ReFo: Chargers @ Broncos, Week 11 - Khaled Elsayed
Yet, through their failings and inability to stay healthy San Diego has been forced to throw Danario Alexander (+2.7) out there, and he’s responded fantastically. The injury issue will seemingly always hang over his head, but he’s always demonstrated an ability to make things happen, and the way he went to work on Tony Carter for two first downs and two more touchdowns was a thing of beauty. His late touchdown catch with 1:29 to go may have proved a mere consolation, but the skill involved was something to behold.
Pro Bowl Cheat Sheet: The AFC - Khaled Elsayed
Ward was an easy choice when you look at the list of strong safety candidates, but how am I supposed to choose between Byrd, Eric Weddle and Reshad Jones? I went with Byrd because his playmaking in coverage is exceptional, but seriously, If you’re voting for any of those three men you can’t go wrong.
PFF ‘Had a Bad Day’ Team of Week 11 - Khaled Elsayed
Harris got beat to the tune of a sack and seven hurries (with two penalties), while Carimi continues to look like a complete liability as a pass blocker.
