Good morning, Chargers fans!
If the big red circle I’m staring at on my calendar is correct, then today is the first day of full pads!
Today’s the day we begin to learn a little more about the players on this roster and it’s also the first big day that the coaching staff can begin to make solid impressions of the players in front of them.
But remember, it’s also the type of day where everyone needs to keep their fingers crossed that the team can exit today’s session without injury, so let’s keep the energy and positive vibes high.
Please feel free to use this post to discuss anything and everything that’s on your minds, as well as today’s events!
And now for today’s links.
