Bolts Win Their 1st Super Bowl!
Yep. That’s right. We are all about to enjoy what will no doubt go down in history as the greatest football season ever witnessed.

"Wilhelm to Eagles" by Chargers Blog
Linebacker Matt Wilhelm, released by the Chargers the week before camp, has agreed to a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

AFC West news and notes - AFC West - ESPN
San Diego coach Norv Turner was excited Monday, saying that the team "added playmakers."

Just call him Mr. Patience
To Rivers, it sometimes appears Jackson can catch anything he throws. At 6 feet 4 and 230 pounds, Jackson is tall and physical and also blessed with an ability to hang in the air and seemingly weave his body and hands through defenders.

But it wasn't until Jackson assimilated the difficulties of precise route running, reading defenses and understanding what his quarterback sees that he became what he is now.

RB Bennett may be a luxury the Bolts can afford
Chargers coach Norv Turner appreciates what Bennett brings. If LaDainian Tomlinson were to go down, backup Darren Sproles is not the typical every-down running back, and Gartrell Johnson is a rookie. Bennett, acquired on waivers last November, could be a luxury the Chargers can afford, depending on how the rest of the roster numbers shake out in the beginning of September.

(Don't miss in the note at the bottom saying that Buster Davis is out with "a really tight quad." Somewhere, Wonko just won $10.)

"Getting physical" by Chargers Blog
Antwan Applewhite, who is making a real push to unseat Jyles Tucker as the fourth outside linebacker, jumped up to intercept a Charlie Whitehurst pass.

After the jump, Twitter and music.  You know the drill.
