Evaluating the Wideouts with WR Coach Phil McGeoghan – Part 1 - Ricky Henne
It went really well. I focused on getting a good grasp of the scheme with the guys, and learn what they do well. I wanted to learn the areas we need to improve at as an offense. We’ve done a good job of working our fundamentals and techniques. Being better at the top of our routes and releasing at the line of scrimmage. Route running mechanics. All the different things that go into being a complete receiver. The guys made tremendous strides.

Top-6 Chargers with All-Pro potential in 2018 - Will Reeve
However, contrary to the skeptical scouting reports from even NFL Media’s Lance Zierlien, King was a monster in coverage as a rookie, posting 71 tackles (61 solo), an astounding four sacks, five passes defensed, one touchdown and one interception in 16 games (four starts) as a rookie.

Metrics that Matter: Breaking down passer rating by position target - Scott Barrett
Philip Rivers ranks third-best in passer rating when targeting tight ends (115.9), which makes sense given the impressive tight end talents he’s had throughout his career (Antonio Gates, Ladarius Green, and Hunter Henry)

AFC West: Top 10 underrated offseason moves for each team - Sayre Bedinger
With Pouncey in the fold, the Chargers’ offensive line looks complete on paper with Russell Okung at left tackle, Dan Feeney and Forrest Lamp at the guard positions, and Joe Barksdale at the right tackle spot.

The Chargers need to have a physical identity offensively, and adding Pouncey to the interior gives them a chance to do so many things within their offense in that regard. This was a great move for them that could have a lasting impact.

Marcus Edmond faces long odds to make the team - Travis Wakeman
I can see this kid having the grit to compete at the next level, there’s just one problem. The Chargers are incredibly deep at cornerback.
