How San Diego Helped Push the Chargers to Los Angeles - Jeffrey Siniard
More than ever, it's obvious that the original mistake which started the Chargers and San Diego down the path to separation was then-Mayor Susan Golding and Alex Spanos agreeing to the expansion of then-Jack Murphy Stadium in 1995. While it's true that San Diego got 2 additional Super Bowls out of the deal, it was also 100% publicly financed, and when you include the training complex in Murphy Canyon, the cost was close to $100 million dollars. At this point in the 1990s, a new stadium would likely have cost between $200 million and $300 million dollars.

AFC West Q&A: Better record, Los Angeles Chargers or Rams? - ESPN.com
Is this a new twist on that old yarn about trees falling in the forest and no one being around to hear them, so they don’t make any noise? Look, both teams are breaking in new coaches. The Rams will get dwarfed in the massive Coliseum, and the Chargers will get intimate in a 30,000-seat soccer stadium. For kicks and giggles, let’s assume everyone on both rosters is healthy. If so, then the Chargers have the most talent in L.A., hands down, even if the Raiders are the most popular team in La La Land.

Did the Chargers do enough to address 2017 defense? - Will Hernandez
Although the Chargers lost Pagano to the Silver and Black, first-year coach Anthony Lynn brought in a familiar and well-respected defensive coordinator in Gus Bradley. The former Jacksonville Jaguar head coach built a strong reputation as one of the league’s top defensive game planners during his time with the Seattle Seahawks.

Chargers safety Dexter McCoil relishes every stop with return trip to LA - Bill Bender
McCoil was a standout safety for the Golden Hurricane from 2011-14, when he had 18 career interceptions. Like so many players chasing the dream, however, he went undrafted. After a failed rookie tryout with the Raiders, he settled for work in Tulsa as a janitor at a fitness gym before he took the first trip to Los Angeles. That was with the Los Angeles Kiss of the Arena Football League, who signed him in January 2014.
