Keenan Allen: "I Have Unfinished Business" - Ricky Henne
"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."

Joey Bosa adapts to NFL 'monsters' - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"He did a spin move on Joe Barksdale the other day and beat him clean as a whistle," said defensive end Corey Liuget, a 2011 first-round pick. "He had Joe out there mad. The kid just has some talent, man. I wasn’t doing that as a rookie. I was nowhere near making as many plays as he’s making right now.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen worth the big contract - Eric Williams
At just 24 years old, Allen has plenty of productive years ahead of him, in an offensive system he knows intimately with a quarterback in Rivers who understands Allen will put in the time off of the field to play at a high level, and will be where he’s supposed to be on the field.

5 San Diego Chargers Players Who Must Step Up In 2016 - Brendan Patel
A lot of the protection problems started with Dunlap, who was unable to stay healthy all season long. Dunlap is a capable left tackle, and his ability to stay on the field will have a huge impact on the Chargers this season.

NFL Draft: Who Is The Best QB of the 2004 Class? - Erik Lambert
He has more Pro Bowls (5) than Manning or Roethlisberger, has thrown fewer interceptions, completed a higher percentage of his passes, and has a higher career quarterback rating.  His 21 comebacks in the 4th quarter is also respectable.  Adding in the fact he’s had this success in San Diego, a city that doesn’t have near the history of football success as New York or Pittsburgh and it should put him in the conversation.
