Tolbert left void that Battle looks to fill - Michael Gehlken
"I just felt San Diego was the best fit for me," Battle, 28, said Tuesday. "With Tolbert leaving, they need someone to play special teams, play running back, play a little fullback, and those are all the things that I can do. That's what I'm thinking. That's my goal, to contribute as much as I can."

Handicapping the Chargers' rookie free agents - Kevin Acee & Michael Gehlken
1. Jarrett Lee, QB: Has impressed everyone with his knowledge and accuracy. Could be this year’s Scott Tolzien – where they’d love to keep him and it comes down numbers and needs at other positions.

In the elaborate math problem that is a football game, each side continually seeks to create a two on one or other favorable numerical matchup; one on ones are not enough. A major reason for this is that, given disparities in size and speed, all "ones" are not necessarily made of the same stuff. And nowhere is this more evident than with special teams, and nowhere on special teams is this more important than punt protection.

2011 Pressure Plays, Defense - Danny Tuccitto
In previous years, we made a weird error: When we talked about how teams did with pass pressure, we only looked at hurries, not scrambles. That's kind of silly, isn't it? So this year, we made sure that we marked every play as either "pressure" or "no pressure."

Rivers Relishes Chance to Teach Rooks - Ricky Henne
In a sea of new faces, one player stood out above the rest during the rookie portion of training camp, and not just because he was wearing a red, non-contact jersey. As one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, Philip Rivers commands respect, and he spent a great deal of time passing on his vast knowledge of the game to his new teammates.
