Bolts Finally Practice "Favorite" Drill - Ricky Henne
No drills elicit more cheers from the crowd than the one-on-ones.  However, perhaps the only ones that enjoy it more than the fans are the players participating.  Each Charger surveyed admitted they relish the opportunity to make plays under the spotlight.  It is also a rare drill that is universally beloved by both the offense and the defense.

"(Practice) was outstanding," McCoy said.  "You saw 52 step up there and make some big collisions on lead blockers whether there was a running back, fullback or a guard at the second level."

The Shutdown Seven: Rating the Best Cornerbacks in the NFL - Robert Mays
What happened to Brandon Flowers over the past two years is about the best anyone could hope for a really good, undervalued athlete. Flowers spent his first six seasons in Kansas City as one of the steadiest — if not the steadiest — corners in the league. As a dependable Cover 2 option, Flowers wasn’t a shutdown defender like Revis, but he was a sure thing at a position where those don’t last very long.

Games Offensive Linemen Play - The Three-Cone Drill (audio)
Ben Muth is a former offensive lineman for the Stanford Cardinal, and briefly played in the NFL as a camp guy before injuries forced his hand. He writes a weekly column on Football Outsiders, Word of Muth, that deep dives into offensive line play in a way few columnists are able to.

We dove into a conversation about his career, his thoughts on offensive line play, his time with Jim Harbaugh (egged on by Danny) and, of course, Brick S**thouse.

Brandon Flowers and Jason Verrett form potent CB combination for Chargers - Eric Williams
Put together, Brandon Flowers and Jason Verrett give the San Diego Chargers one of the best cornerback duos in the NFL. And although short in stature, both can match up with some of the most physical receivers in the league and still be effective.
