Mailbag: Rookie TE in San Diego - Bill Williamson
I don’t think the Chargers are counting on the fourth-rounder for much more than being a special teamer this season and learning the system.

Ten Thousand - Randall Munroe
I try not to make fun of people for admitting they don't know things. If I make fun of people, I train them not to tell me when they have those moments. And I miss out on the fun.
