Blockbuster trade gives Chargers options - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
All that film review. The practices. The games. The combine. The pro days. The private workouts and visits to the team facility. It all builds toward the compilation of a draft board.

Worst to first? Not this year. The Chargers will be improved, but they are at least a year away, in terms of talent on the roster, from realistically competing for a playoff spot in the AFC West, a division dominated by talented defenses. San Diego has the best quarterback in the division, Philip Rivers, and an improving, young defense, but the Chargers will still struggle to score points.

"It’s cool to see I had the third most catches (through Week 8), but there are 16 games in season, not eight. So my goal is to double it and see what happens.  That’s in the past. I’m looking forward to this season.  I can’t wait for Monday.  I’m excited to get going again. I’m excited to get back with Philip and pick up where we left off. We have unfinished business."

Mayor not ready to make ‘Convadium’ decision - Nick Canepa (UT$)
So, as he trudges from budget meetings to campaign managing in this election year, he’s not in a hurry on this. I wish he were. I think time’s a-wastin’. He doesn’t. He’s being careful. He doesn’t know enough. This isn’t like putting in another confounded bicycle lane. I can’t blame him for that.

San Diego mayor asks for more details on Chargers stadium project - Eric Williams
