2014 Adjusted Games Lost - Scott Kacsmar
The 2013 Giants' record for worst offensive AGL (80.9) only stood one year. San Diego edged them out this year with the use of roughly nine thousand centers, though the 2014 Giants also rank among the ten most-injured offenses in our database.

SD may have to cover 65% of stadium cost - Roger Showley (UT$)
The center's president, Erik Bruvold, said he is still preparing his findings, but a much lower public contribution matched by a much higher private share would make a stadium deal in San Diego an "extreme outlier" in the NFL stadium world.

2015 All-Blogger NFL Mock Draft - Matt Falk
We have compiled some of the top NFL Bloggers on the web and asked them to make their selection for the teams they cover. The result? Glorious.

Chargers draft plan stumps draftniks - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Of late, mainstream draftniks have paired 12 players with San Diego at 17. So much for the notion that the recent NFL Scouting Combine would declutter the draft board. In fairness to the analysts, the Chargers themselves may not have narrowed their search at 17, eight weeks before Draft Day. General Manager Tom Telesco has said that the team will not winnow the top candidates by positions until April.
