Mailbag: What Area Needs Most Improvement? - Ricky Henne
The Chargers have actually had a lot of success against NFC opponents in McCoy’s two-years plus at the helm.  They enter this week with a 7-2 record, having defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants in 2013, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers in 2014 and Detroit Lions two weeks ago.  Their two losses were on the road against the Washington Redskins and Arizona Cardinals.

Melvin Gordon faces friend, icon in same game - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"He’s got real nice feet," Peterson said. "He runs physical, and he’s quick in between the tackles. I think maybe that’s why I like him so much because he reminds me of how I would run the ball with the talent that I’ve been presented with.

Vikings-Chargers a dream come true for Trae Waynes, Melvin Gordon - Ben Goessling
"Melvin's a big boy. They're constantly talking smack about it. My biggest fear is somebody's going to get hurt," Trae Waynes' mother, Erin, said the day after the Vikings took Waynes 11th overall and the Chargers selected Gordon four picks later. "As soon as they both got drafted, people were checking out the schedules, seeing when they were going to face each other. I'll probably have my eyes closed for most of the game."

Ladarius Green suffers second concussion in two weeks - Eric Williams
"Like any player on our football team, we’re going to be cautious with that," McCoy said. "He’ll go through the normal protocol, and he’ll go through the evaluations the rest of the week. And we’ll go from there. He’ll have an NFL neurologist look at him like every other NFL player would at this point in time come later in the week."

Advantage: Norv Turner or the Bolts? - Ricky Henne
"Norv is one of the best coordinators of all time," he said.  "He’s going to be calling the plays over there for them, and obviously Philip (Rivers) knows him extremely well, too.  It’s going to be a great game and we’re looking forward to playing against him.  We’ve got to play our best game of the year.  We have our system and they have their system.  We’ve got to go out there and play the game."
