Chargers have few options but to move to Los Angeles after stadium vote fails - Jason La Canfora
"If Dean stays, it's not because he thinks he can get a stadium in San Diego," one ownership source said. "It's just because he doesn't want to take the deal in Inglewood."

Doubt Emerging On Rams-Chargers L.A. Deal? - Sam Robinson
Nevertheless, the Bolts’ stadium measure failing on this level — it received 43.1 percent of the vote when a two-thirds majority was required — points them out of town. But Dean Spanos potentially keeping his team in San Diego in 2017 would allow the clock to expire on the NFL’s initial agreement, which gives the Chargers until Jan. 15 of next year to move before the Raiders receive that opportunity. An extension on this agreement seems likely, but the Raiders’ complex path to Las Vegas complicates this.

10 worst players from Sunday's Week 10 NFL action - Sam Monson
Two weeks ago, Barksdale was utterly dismantled by Von Miller and the Denver Broncos. He wasn’t a whole lot better last week against the Titans, but the pass rush they can bring will have been seen as something of a respite. This week he was back in the fire again going up against Cameron Wake and the Dolphins, and it went badly. Barksdale surrendered two sacks and six total pressures – the most among tackles this week – on just 56 offensive snaps, 37 of which were pass-blocking.

Top 10 players of Week 10 of the NFL season - Sam Monson
With multiple linebackers missing injured for the Chargers, the spot figured to be a real weakness for them heading into the game with Miami, but Toomer had other ideas. Racking up 10 solo tackles (third among LBs this week) and a monstrous 10 defensive stops (first in the league at any position), Toomer had a huge day, and also broke up the only pass thrown his way in coverage. This was an outstanding performance is a losing effort, and marks Toomer’s second strong outing in three games, as he has found himself with plenty of playing time for the Chargers.

Chargers React to Brandon Mebane's "Brutal" Season Ending Injury - Ricky Henne
Mebane was in the midst of a phenomenal season as his 35 total tackles led all Chargers defensive linemen.  He also recorded 15 pressures, six QB hits, four tackles for loss, one sack and his first career interception.  Equally important, the Bolts will miss his impact off the field just as much.
