Serious Business: 10/31 San Diego Chargers Links

Where's the Chargers defense we were promised? - Kevin Acee
We were sold on the Chargers new defensive coordinator as an attack-minded general. Man, when the Chargers were up, he was going to put his foot on the opponents’ throat. When they were behind, he wouldn’t back down.

Chargers moving on to the next big game - Kevin Acee
"It’s a division game," Philip Rivers said emphatically. "The six division games are bigger than any of the other 10."

Jaws see reasons for Rivers' struggles - Kevin Acee
"I think we’ve raised the bar -- or Philip has raised the bar -- so high in his performance that when we see it drop a little bit, we almost panic," Jaworski said. "I mean, he has been so good for such an extended period of time, When you see some of the things happening, there is some concern."

Week 8 Matchups: Nothing Left to Count On - Mike Tanier
Rivers should come around, and if he does not, we have at least grown accustomed to ugly Monday night games. Pick: Chargers.

The red zone efficiency myth - Aaron Schatz (Insider)
But what if there is no such thing as a team that is better or worse in the red zone? A couple of years ago, we did research that showed that playing better in the red zone compared to performance in other areas of the field isn't a consistent trait from year to year.
