Chargers’ hidden treasure: Defensive line - Bill Williamson
It lost a lot of talent and it hasn’t been a difference-making unit in the Chargers’ 3-4 set. I think that is changing. There are some interesting young players on this unit that will help improve this group.
2012 NFL Week 3 Preview: Atlanta Falcons vs. San Diego Chargers - The Grits Blitz
I see Atlanta pulling out the win in this one. The loss of Vincent Jackson and Kris Dielmann will have a huge impact on the Chargers offense, and even though they added Melvin Ingram they still don't have a consistent pass rushing threat. Atlanta should be able to take advantage of the Chargers holes on both offense and defense.
LaDainian Tomlinson: Greatest Running Back Ever? - Nick Robbin

Philip Rivers thinks San Diego Chargers have "even greater hunger" to play well next season – John Jasper
It has been worrying to see blooming years of Rivers’ career being wasted. He will turn 31 this year. This could be of great benefit for both Rivers and Chargers as every coming season could be the last opportunity for Rivers to win the championship and he will give his best shot to end his career on a memorable note.
LaDainian Tomlinson's Preference for Hall of Fame Over Super Bowl Ring on Par With Running Back's Legacy - Ricky Doyle
A Super Bowl ring is the only omission on LaDainian Tomlinson's resume. He won't lose sleep over it, though, which makes sense given the running back's propensity for playoff failures.
AFC's most overrated players - KC Joyner (Insider)
Champ Bailey, CB, Denver Broncos: It's hard to knock Bailey at some level because one always wants to pay respect to an elder statesman of the league, but he was nowhere near deserving of his Pro Bowl nomination last year. His 7.8 overall YPA ranked tied for 47th in that metric and his 12.8 VYPA (tied for 73rd) was downright abysmal.
