Chargers mourn death of Earl Faison - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
"On behalf of the Spanos family and the entire Chargers organization, we’d like to express our deepest sympathies to the Faison family," Chairman Dean Spanos said in a statement released by the team. "I had the privilege of getting to know Earl through the years. He was a consummate gentleman with a booming voice and laugh. His passion for the Chargers and the game of football was unwavering."

Chargers’ Ken Whisenhunt back on the job - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"I’m in the same office. It’s sunny, which is typical of being out here," Whisenhunt said. "Philip (Rivers) is here. There’s a lot of guys. It’s very unusual where you leave a place and you come back to it in this league. It just doesn’t happen like that. But for me, in a lot of ways, it feels like I didn’t leave because there are familiar guys within the organization and even with the players."

Top 15 quarterback units of the Super Bowl era - Dave Dameshek
How 'bout this trio? OK, not collectively very tall, but plenty good in just about every other regard. It's funny to think now that Rivers was drafted the preceding spring because neither Brees nor Flutie appeared to be a long-term answer. Then Brees, we now know, arrived with a monster '04. The torn labrum Brees suffered in '05 ended his time in San Diego, but he'd already been reduced to placeholder for first-round pick Rivers by then. Flutie was wee but gifted. It's just too bad Pete Carroll wasn't around in the '84 Heisman winner's heyday.
