The NFLPA Finally Responds To The Greg Hardy Comments, And It's Complete Nonsense - Andy Isaac
How incredibly obtuse and tone deaf. More or less, "hey guys we know what Greg Hardy said, here’s some ice cream and donuts and let’s sing ‘Kumbaya’ together." Even worse, people like Shannon Sharpe bought into the bullsh*t hook, line and sinker.

Shannon Sharpe hurls more jabs at Chargers' Antonio Gates - Eric Williams
"If Antonio Gates believes in his heart of hearts that I care whether or not he breaks the records that I once had, that Tony [Gonzalez] now has, [or] he ends his career with more catches, more yards, more touchdowns, more rings, if he honestly believes that, I feel bad for him," Sharpe said. "You see, I didn’t tarnish his name. I didn’t put the stain on his resume. He did that."

Patrick Robinson adds production, experience at corner for Chargers - Eric Williams
"I think it’s a good fit for me," Robinson said. "I’m doing well. But for me it’s just doing my job, to be honest. I’m trying to make it as simple as possible. Do your job, work hard, finish on plays and eventually you’re going to have a chance to make a big play."

Concussions hitting Chargers hard - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"I did the program twice," said Liuget, who wore a cap with sensors interpreting signals from his brain. "Right after that, I saw results in my focus on the field, everything. It’s a great program. … Neurofeedback helps with concussions if you ask me. I had one (last year), and then these guys came in and helped me out. I felt a lot better."

Philip Rivers to be Chargers' new Iron Man - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
It barely has been discussed leading up to Monday night’s game against the Steelers. Maybe, that is because Philip Rivers has been so steady, so available, that his presence behind center has come to seem a foregone conclusion. The Chargers quarterback will set a franchise record when he steps onto the field at Qualcomm Stadium, as he makes his 149th consecutive start.

Jacoby Jones Practices for First Time Since Week 1 - Ricky Henne
"It was fun," he said.   "I felt good.  I felt like myself.  I felt like Jacoby Jones." Including this season, Jones has missed only 12 of a possible 131 regular season games over a nine year career.  It wasn’t easy for the affable playmaker to sit on the sidelines while his "brothers" had all the fun, and he used the type of analogy only he could make to describe the feeling.

"We Have a Higher Degree of Confidence in our Fifth Receiver than Most Teams" - Ricky Henne
The other was Dontrelle Inman, the second-year player who sits fifth on the depth chart. While some teams may be wary needing their fifth receiver to step up, the Bolts have the utmost confidence in number 15.

Eerie Similarities Between Chargers, Steelers Offense - Ricky Henne
The Chargers and Steelers are set to face off with identical 2-2 records.  However, a closer look at both offenses reveals eerie similarities between the two squads.
