Chargers still recovering from trip - Kevin Acee
After arriving in Jacksonville at 3 a.m. Sunday, playing Monday night and getting back to San Diego at 4 a.m. Tuesday, the Chargers eased into the week with a shorts-only, no-helmets practice on Wednesday.

AFC West mailbag - Bill Williamson
Often, teams usually move away from the type of coach they had just fired. When Turner was hired by San Diego in 2007, the Chargers went for an offensive coach after departing ways with a defensive-minded coach in Marty Schottenheimer. But I think this situation is different. I think the Chargers will look for the best possible fit regardless of what side of the ball a coach specializes on.
