Matching Up to 11 - Tom Gower
What does this all mean? To me, the most interesting thing in these tables is the apparent change in strategic preferences of having more defensive backs on the field. It does not seem to have been driven by necessity. Here is how teams did against 11 with a given number of defensive backs on the field in 2011.

Chargers practice report: Floyd thrilled - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
Malcom Floyd looks all the way back from the Week 15 ankle injury that ended his 2012 season. He was quick out of his breaks and attacked the ball. Floyd, 6' 5'' and 225 pounds, has added five pounds of muscle since the season ended. "Best I've ever felt," said Floyd, 31.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews says he has been an 'average back' so far - Kenneth Arthur
The Chargers moved up in the first round to draft Mathews in 2010, but he hasn't come close to filling Ladainian Tomlinson's shoes. And he knows it. Will Mathews make strides in Year 4?

Chargers like D.J. Fluker at RT - Bill Williamson
"Anything is possible," McCoy said Wednesday. "But where he is right now is where we think we are keeping him."

How much offensive change in San Diego? - Bill Williamson
"You’ll see some of the things we did in the past," Rivers said. "You will see Antonio Gates run of the same routes. ... There are only so many plays. This thing is not going to be totally different."
