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

Tony Gwynn: 1960-2014 - Jonah Keri
Those who knew Gwynn described him as an endlessly affable person and great friend. Mere minutes after news of Gwynn’s death came out, sportswriters, former colleagues, and many others were already posting heartfelt tributes. He was, quite simply, one of the most beloved figures in the history of the city of San Diego.

Eddie Royal healthy, ready for season - Eric Williams
"It's very important," Royal said. "I'm seeing that now. Just the little improvements I've made with my footwork, and other little things that I wasn't able to do last year -- the ins and outs of running routes based on different coverages -- it's been big for me so far."

2014 Depth Chart: San Diego Chargers - Gordon McGuinness
Running back looks to be a real strength for the Chargers this year, with Ryan Matthews coming off one of his best seasons since entering the league, and Danny Woodhead providing one of the NFL’s best receiving threats out of the backfield. Add in Donald Brown, who had a solid year for the Indianapolis Colts in 2013, and it’s clear that this is one of the team’s deepest position groups.

How "Intelligent" are Pro Football Focus Grades? - James Keane
According to PFF, their subjective grading allows them "to bring some intelligence to the raw numbers" (Stephen Jay Gould may have chuckled at this).  If this is the case, then perhaps if the subjective grades are used in conjunction with the other metrics, and not by itself, the correlations improve.
