San Diego Chargers Daily Links: October 17, 2015

Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Is There Any Life Left in Chargers? - Jim Hurley
San Diego’s problems start on defense. They don’t do anything particularly well on this side of the ball. Philip Rivers is still a productive quarterback, but the running game is inconsistent. So Rivers gets the ball knowing he has to score a lot of points and has minimal help in doing so. The fact he’s already thrown five interceptions seems almost inevitable when looked at in that context.

San Diego Chargers: Keenan Allen set for big Week 6 - Joe Soriano
San Diego Chargers third-year wide receiver Keenan Allen has flashed his rookie form throughout the first five weeks of the 2015 regular season after being held to just 783 receiving yards last season.

Ex-NFL GM pans Chargers offensive line - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Skeptical of Chargers-drafted blockers, Dominik said he preferred to buy veteran offensive linemen instead of drafting them because the transition from college to the NFL is so difficult. Though Melvin Gordon is among the NFL leaders in rushes of 20-plus yards, Dominik said inadequate blocking is why the rookie lacks any rushes of 30 or more yards.

What are the Packers Saying About the Bolts? - Ricky Henne & Hayley Elwood
"(Antonio Gates) is going to make his receptions and he’s obviously, as you saw from last week, Philip’s number one target.  I’m sure there will be times where we double him and we’ll keep someone on him.  But they do a good job of getting everybody open sometimes with an empty backfield and getting the ball out quick.  He’s a person we’ll obviously have to keep an eye on." – LB Clay Matthews

Chargers kicker Josh Lambo ready for Lambeau experience - Eric Williams
"It’s in my head because everybody keeps asking me about it," Lambo said, when asked about the name comparison this week. "But I don’t care where I play. I’m just trying to put the ball through the uprights."
