Kindness, ability to connect defined Junior Seau the person - Jim Trotter
After passing through the towering glass doors at the entrance, Davis was stunned to see the greatest defensive player in Chargers history standing at the front desk. Davis had never formally met Junior Seau, but he was familiar with him, telling the perennial Pro Bowl linebacker after some small talk and handshakes: "I've hated you for all my life. But it's out of respect. It's because you kicked our ass so many times."

Estimated Sacks Data From 1960 to 1968 - Chase Stuart
You remember the November 20th game between the Bears and Lions in 1960, right? If you look at the boxscore on PFR, you will see that Detroit quarterback Jim Ninowski was 10 for 26 for 121 yards with 0 touchdown passes and 2 interceptions. You’ll also see that the Lions as a team went 10 for 26 for 121 yards with 0 touchdown passes, 2 interceptions, and 12 sacks for 107 yards. But the PFR boxscore does not indicate how many sacks Ninowski took that game, because the individual game log data wasn’t kept on that metric.

During his time in San Diego, elbow to elbow in that room with his father, he inched closer to releasing his secret. Discussion followed discussion, and still Arian could not be convinced. There was backlash to consider then too: Carl Foster might have been an open-minded, well-read man, but religion was important to him. Finally, toward the end of his junior year, Arian summoned the courage to tell his father he did not believe -- only to see his father nod knowingly and say, "Go find your truth."

Run game clicking early on for Chargers - Eric Williams
"Yes, it's getting better, but it's nothing to write home about yet," D'Alessandris said. "I always keep myself reserved in that area. But it is improving. We've got a quality running back here, and now we've got to continue to do a good job up front."

Eric Weddle prepared for final season with Chargers - Eric Williams
"I just want to go out on a high note, go out on top and lead my team," he said. "I want to continue to show what I’m all about. I’m a pro. I’m a professional and strive to be the best and try to have fun.
