NFL in L.A.? Here are some predictions for the next few months - Sam Farmer
With St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke proposing a stadium in Inglewood, and the owners of the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders backing a competing project in Carson, the stars are aligned for something to happen. The league could be on the verge of solving a 20-year riddle and returning to Los Angeles.

2014 Rushing by Number of Backs - Sterling Xie
And while no team figures to see a Miami-like plummet, the Ravens figure to see the biggest two-back usage decline following the conclusion of their one-year Kubiak fling. Marc Trestman moved away from the fullback during his second and final season as the Bears head coach, using the sixth-fewest percentage of two-back sets. Of course, his old team figures to phase that formation out even more after John Fox brought his Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase to the Midwest. Chicago doesn't even have a fullback on the roster, so the Bears will likely swap places with the Broncos in the red next year.

Performance will obviously play a huge role here, but all things considered, I’m confident Stevie Johnson will emerge as a fan favorite.  There is a reason he has nearly 1,000,000 followers on Twitter as he boasts a unique and refreshing personality.  Johnson immediately became a fan favorite in the locker room, so I think it is only a matter of time before he does that on a larger scale with all Chargers fans.

All You Need to Know About King Dunlap -
A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Dunlap was one of the state’s most heavily recruited players coming out of high school. Even though he ultimately settled on playing collegiately at Auburn, Georgia Tech was one of the teams trying hard to woo him to their Atlanta campus. Coincidentally the Yellow Jackets’ offensive line coach at the time was current Chargers line coach, Joe D’Alessandris.

All You Need to Know About Keenan Allen -
In his second NFL season, Allen had another outstanding year, leading the team with 77 catches, good for 783 yards and four scores. Looking back, as unfathomable as it might sound, Allen’s brilliant start to his NFL career almost never materialized.
