San Diego Chargers Daily Links: September 26, 2013

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY

Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Chargers make example of Woodhead - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
Despite the result, coach Mike McCoy highlighted Woodhead's awareness during a Monday team meeting. It comes after the team fell to 1-2, both its losses decided in the final 15 seconds by a three-point margin.

Vincent Brown's touches 'will come' - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
None of the team's wide receivers have played more offensive snaps than Brown, in on more than 93 percent of them. Yet through a three-game start that has seen Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd post 100-yard games and Eddie Royal catch five touchdowns, the production has been relatively modest for the third-year veteran.

Week 3 Quick Reads - Vince Verhei
Rivers was so ridiculously great on second down (7-of-8 for 101 yards, with six first downs, plus two DPIs for 42 yards and a pair of sacks) that he had only three third-down plays. On the other hand, those three third-down plays resulted in a 3-yard gain with 5 yards to go, a 9-yard gain with 10 yards to go, and an incomplete pass.

Week 3 DVOA Ratings - Aaron Schatz
The 2001 and 2002 Chargers were basically the mirror image of Washington in 2001, starting the season off like gangbusters and then completely falling apart. And the ironic thing there, of course, is that the same head coach was in charge of the 2001 Washington team that started 0-5 but finished 8-8 and the 2002 San Diego team that started 6-1 but finished 8-8: Marty Schottenheimer.

McCoy: It Goes Back to the Basic Fundamentals - Ricky Henne
So what were some of the positives? Obviously the outstanding play of Philip Rivers continues to be one, but McCoy praised the job of the offensive line, a unit that looked quite different from the beginning to the end of the game.
