Bolts Get Boost with Return of Vincent Brown - Ricky Henne
"It’s a blessing just to be running around again," he said. "I feel like a 10-year old kid running around, just happy to be out there. It’s been fun and I’m working to get back to where I was before. It’s been a tough battle trying to get it strong. I’d have a bunch of steps forward, then some back. But the point where it is now, I’m able to cut on it and run full speed. "

Roots of coaching trees run deep - Greg Garber
Long before it was the fashion, Sid Gillman loved the long ball. His San Diego Chargers offense featured all kinds of dizzying, deceptive motion, multiple wide receivers and a versatile tight end.

Dwight Freeney deal creates more questions than answers for Chargers - Chris Burke
But here’s the rub: Not only do the Chargers have to show they can adjust their defense to get Freeney in his preferred 4-3 set, they also still have numerous holes elsewhere on the roster.

A Tebow and Te'o view from Denver - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
Klis writes that his big point is this one: "If Te’o doesn’t talk, then the media doing a story on Te’o has little choice but to ask his teammates and coaches about Te’o. That ain’t good. That causes some resentment among players. Te’o needs love; not resentment."

No doubting that Thomas is a key to the Chargers' defense - Jay Paris (paywall)
Thomas enters his fourth year but first as a starter. With Aubrayo Franklin and Antonio Garay spit out the Chargers Park revolving door, the defense's key position falls to Thomas. Having Freeney is fabulous. Te'o could be terrific. But in a 3-4, if your nose tackle stinks, so does the unit.
