AFC West Spin cycle: Week Two - Kevin Fishbain
Monitoring the wide receivers will be a common trend with this Chargers team as we wait for the free-agent additions of Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal to not only get comfortable in the offense and gain a rapport with Philip Rivers, but also to make an impact.

Defense Turning Heads - Ricky Henne
"It’s a collective effort from the guys up front to the linebackers to the guys on the back end," said Donald Butler. "And not only that, it’s the calls. Guys are focusing in and we’re able to get things done on the field. Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson are two elite running backs that we were able to control, so it feels good."

Audibles at the Line: Week 2 - Rivers McCown
Rivers is annihilating the Titans secondary early. Malclom Floyd has a couple completions against Jason McCourty, Eddie Royal beat nickelback Ryan Mouton on third down during a drive following a bad Jake Locker interception, and I believe Michael Griffin yielded his second touchdown to Dante Rosario three plays later. Chargers up 14-0 less than 11 minutes in.

Moving on: San Diego Chargers - Bill Williamson
Biggest area to fix: We’re nitpicking here, because the Chargers were so good, but they do need to finish in pass-rushing situations. The Chargers didn’t have any sacks Sunday, but they did provide a lot of pressure. Finishing sacks needs to happen though.

"Haven’t been tested too much," Weddle said. "Just surround the ball and try to help your team in other areas if you’re not getting attacked. If you are getting balls thrown in your area, you have to make them pay.

"We just felt we needed to do it," Cooper said. "I'd have to look at the minutes, but somebody said, 'Wow. Of course we need to do this.' We probably had a minute of discussion and took a vote. It's really cool that we could do this the day after his recognition yesterday. … This day turned out to be perfect because it was just a nice wrap-up to the whole weekend."
