It is hard to believe that Malcom Floyd will be 31 this year. Philip Rivers passed for 4,624 yards last season and the 1,106 that Vincent Jackson accounted for will (for simplicity’s sake) be redistributed to Floyd, Robert Meachem, Vincent Brown, and Eddie Royal. Floyd ended 2011 on fire with at least 5 catches 90 yards and 1 touchdown in his final 3 games. Floyd only played in 523 snaps but still had the second highest PFF rating for the entire San Diego offense (+13.7). Therefore, he performed well in a relatively small workload, is slated to receive a bigger workload, and ended the season well – sign me up for Malcom Floyd.

The intensity was cranked up in the evening workout after this morning’s walkthrough. Players were hustled around the field with few seconds wasted between snaps.

Will there be a Royal revival in San Diego? - Bill Williamson
Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. says he thinks Royal can revive his game in San Diego. "Royal is interesting," Williamson said. "He was very good as a rookie. He’s a pure slot guy. He can thrive in that role with initial explosive movements and he has after-the-catch skills."
AFC West: More or Less - Bill Williamson
Any team with Philip Rivers at quarterback has a puncher’s chance. The Chargers were aggressive in free agency and they had a productive draft. If the defense can bounce back, Clayton’s number is attainable.
Tomlinson-Smith truce is the right thing - Bill Williamson
Smith made it clear to U-T San Diego that all is good between himself and the future Hall of Famer. "Right or wrong, all the word that was exchanged in the past was nothing more than emotional, meaningless banter. It was highly competitive people protecting their own turf. All of us knew in our hearts we would end up right where we are today."
