Telesco Impresses in First National Press Conference - Ricky Henne
"As a whole, we need to get improvement from (the offense)," he said. "I think having Mike with a quarterback background, not only playing in the league but coaching quarterbacks, it's going to help. Ken Whisenhunt's background is great. It's a great fit for us. That's going to help. Those two guys are going to be a huge help for our offense, no doubt about it."

2013 NFL Combine: Tom Telesco still believes in Ryan Mathews - Jason Garrison
"He's really talented," Telesco said on Thursday afternoon. "He's a really good back. He's got size, he runs well. He's had production but he's had some injuries too. I think he can be a bell-cow back, but he needs to prove that on the field by staying healthy and I think he's going to have a chance to do that. But all the talent is there."

Ranking the 2013 Free Agents: Linebackers - Nathan Jahnke
You’ve been with us through the entire offense (quarterbacks, running backs, fullbacks, wide receivers, tight ends, offensive tackles) and a brief sojourn to the kickers and punters. Now we’ve moved on to defense and, after looking at the interior and edge defenders, it’s time to check in with the linebackers.

2013 NFL combine: AFC West primer - Bill Williamson
San Diego may be in a position of strength at No. 11. We may not see the Chargers’ draft plan unfold after they do their free-agent shopping. Left tackle is San Diego’s top need. The free-agent class is solid. If the Chargers answer their left tackle needs before the draft, they could operate from a position of strength in the first round.
