Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Will Chargers get statement win against Chiefs?

Your daily dose of Los Angeles Chargers news & notes from around the web.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Pouncey brings 'energy and nastiness' to Chargers' run game - Eric Williams
"He's incredible," Chargers offensive tackle Russell Okung said. "His zeal and enthusiasm for the game, for our offensive line, it's amazing. I think it's going to do pretty well for us, particularly down the stretch.

NFL Preview 2018: The Chargers Ain’t a Lock to Win the AFC West - Nathan Graber-Lipperman
From top to bottom, the Chargers boast one of the most talented rosters in the league. Will it matter? Last year, the team finished seventh in offensive DVOA and twelfth in defensive DVOA…and they still didn’t make the playoffs due to a slew of late-game mishaps and inconsistent play. Heading into 2018, there’s no more excuses for the Bolts, especially with one of the easiest schedules in the league

The Top Ten Quarterbacks Heading Into 2018: Number Six - Nathan Graber-Lipperman
What the seven-time Pro Bowler will do is pass for another 4,000 yards — the ninth time he has cleared the benchmark in his illustrious career — and 25+ touchdowns. He’ll top 90 in passer rating and wow in efficiency; in 2017, Rivers trailed only Tom Brady for the highest Defense-adjusted Yards Above Replacement (or DYAR) in the league.

NFL Offseason's Darling Team Can Make Huge Statement In Week 1 - Brent Sobleski
"I keep going to the word steady," Rivers said of his approach as he enters his 15th season, per's Eric D. Williams. "Last year was crazy just with the move [from San Diego to Los Angeles] and all of that. I think just from a football standpoint, I just feel in a good mindset and approach. I'm seeing things good, as far as knowing every answer for this, and this and this—and my communication with the guys."

What will the Los Angeles Chargers game plan be without Joey Bosa? - Ernie Padaon
I think Rochell will have his moments to shine, but there are times that he will disappear. I know we like him and believe that he can hold his own, but he isn’t Bosa. Rochell just won’t have the consistency at getting after the quarterback as Bosa would bring. We can’t deny that Bosa is a beast at pressuring offenses and setting up his teammates for success. We have to do some things a little different.

How the Chiefs offense will attack the Chargers defense - KP
“Often, the Chargers will counter this by altering their Cover 3 assignments by playing Cover 3 cloud/saint. This is essentially like a Cover 2 zone to one side of the field, and a Cover 3 to the other. Basically, a cornerback (a field or boundary corner, depending on the call) will play a flat zone while the apex/nickel corner (or a safety) will drop to the deep third.”
