San Diego Chargers Daily Links: January 31, 2014

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

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

McCoy, Gase friends from afar - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
McCoy and Gase, the Broncos offensive coordinator, are good friends, former colleagues in Denver from 2009 to 2012. Their friendship was built over football, and it's endured somewhat despite it, the two unable to engage in too detailed of talks given they are now coaching in the same division.

Dwight Freeney talks next step, Peyton - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
When he played last season, he was often disruptive. And talking about the Chargers this week, he praised the "family" atmosphere created under Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy while lauding as "cornerstones" players such as Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Eric Weddle and Donald Butler (who is eligible for free agency).

Analysis Notebook, SBXLVIII: Wide Rush - Sam Monson
The Seahawks have a platoon of edge-rushers they can deploy to bring the heat but in Michael Bennett they also have a defensive end who they align inside in a four-man line to ply his trade as a defensive tackle. There’s nothing unusual about this in today’s NFL – it’s a trend that multiple teams employ – but the Seahawks don’t actually line Bennett up inside.

Did the Late Round Quarterback Work in 2013? - Josh Collachi
Fantasy football is a game of strategy. Some say it’s luck. Some say it’s putting yourself in the best position to get lucky. The truth is, it’s a combination of both of these things. Anyone can win one championship, but being able to perform consistently at a high level in redraft leagues takes strategy, preparation, and a bit of luck.

Better With Age - Chris B. Brown
But for Manning, it’s also a vanishing opportunity. Twenty years removed from that freshman-year quarterback battle, Manning knows this could be his last shot at a championship. He’s chasing his second Super Bowl win, but he’s still competing like he’s fighting to start.
