Fallbrook is where Community Baptist Church takes up residence and, with the church’s close proximity to San Diego, it stands to reason that the pastoral staff and congregation had Chargers fans among them. If you look at the marquee that they have in front of their building, though, it feels like a safe assumption to say that their allegiances will not be following the team to Los Angeles

Gus Bradley coordinated the best defenses in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012. That got him a head coaching job with the Jacksonville Jaguars. And from 2013-2016, we found out that Bradley is a great defensive coordinator.

In many ways, Bradley’s decision makes a lot of sense. The Chargers have a great deal of young talent on the defensive side of the ball including Joey Bosa, Jason Verrett, and Melvin Ingram. They also have talented defensive tackle Brandon Mebane who Bradley worked with in Seattle, so he probably will be able to shape that defense into a solid attacking unit.

"This first thing we tell them is this is not an all-star game; this is a job interview," said Mike Martz, head coach of the National team. "We’re here to help you do the best you can for a job interview, and everything you do in practice is under the microscope."

Figler, one of the country’s most prolific memorabilia collectors, is feeling the pain like so many other San Diegans because of the Chargers’ move to Los Angeles. A native of St. Louis, he’s lived in San Diego for about 40 years and was a season ticket holder from 1973 until before last year. His son, Nathan, once worked for the Chargers.
