Have the Chargers done enough to fix the NFL's worst run defense? - Eric Williams
"So I think now that we have been around these guys for a little bit, we have a better feeling now what they're all about, what makes them operate and how to coach them. Sometimes you can ask so much that you paralyze them. So you're trying to find that line of how much can you put on them, and still allow them to play fast."

Chargers GM Talks Henry, Gates, Draft - Ben Levine
“Our run defense needs to improve. It comes from all 11 players on defense, not just the front 7. To give some perspective though, the top 5 teams in avg rushing yards allowed per game were: Browns, Broncos, Cards, Titans, and Eagles. Combined record 33-42 going into week 17. Worst 5 teams were: Chargers, Patriots, Rams, Jags, and Steelers. Combined record 53-22. We never want to be in the bottom 5 in anything, and improvement is needed. But we have to be balanced and smart.”

Bolts Buzz: Chargers Recap Game 1 of the NBA Finals - Hayley Elwood
After Cleveland tied the game with less than five seconds remaining, Cavs forward JR Smith rebounded a missed free throw and appeared to run out the clock instead of trying to score. The blunder sent the game to overtime.

Don't sleep on wide receiver Artavis Scott - Travis Wakeman
But I still believe Scott could be a great option in the slot and even if he doesn’t make the team this season, I see him having a much better summer, one that could lead to him playing for another team down the road if he doesn’t fit in Los Angeles.

Chargers GM says rookie Derwin James brings presence everyone can ‘feel’ - Gavino Borquez
“He just has a presence about him. Just the way he carries himself, that’s what I remember the most from that interview. Just that presence, from the moment he walked in the room, you could feel it.”

The 99 NFL players, coaches and themes that will define 2018 - Dan Graziano, Mike Sando & Kevin Seifert
Ingram and Bosa terrorizing QBs in L.A.: Even before safety Derwin James dropped into their laps at 17th overall in April's draft, the Chargers boasted a deep secondary with the likes of Jason Verrett and Jahleel Addae. And no team comes at you with a more fearsome edge-rusher tandem than Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa.
