NFL hot seat rankings: Another coach suddenly in jeopardy? - Nate Davis
No shame in losing at Denver to the reigning champion Broncos ... especially when QB Philip Rivers misfires on 27 of 47 passes, with three of those incompletions getting picked off. The Bolts no longer enjoy much of a home-field advantage at Qualcomm Stadium, but maybe being in San Diego for four of the next five weeks will allow them to focus on making perhaps a final push to get out of the AFC West cellar and perhaps keep McCoy employed.

San Diego Chargers inexplicably veer away from Melvin Gordon in loss - Bernie Wilson
"Melvin ran better than maybe I've ever seen him," center Matt Slauson said. "He was decisive, confident and powerful. It was a lot of fun. Fun to watch, a lot of fun to block for a guy when he was running like that."

An Update on Danny Woodhead - Ricky Henne
"I’m doing great," he said after an early morning rehab session. "I really am.  I am doing everything to get back.  My spirits are high. I’m very pleased with my progression.  It sucks being out, but injuries are a part of football.  It is what it is.  It’s part of the game. Does it suck? Yeah, but I’m not going to dwell on it. I know God has a plan for me."

Lowest-graded players at every position in NFL Week 8 - Bryson Vesnaver

Another game, another six pressures from Joey Bosa. Incredibly, that mark was actually below his per-game average heading into the meeting with the Broncos. He has four sacks, seven hits, and 15 hurries in just NFL four games; those numbers extrapolated to a 16-game season would give him over 100 total pressures—a feat we’ve only ever seen accomplished in the PFF era (since the 2006 season) by Texans DE J.J. Watt.
