  Chargers | Melvin Gordon to catch more passes?    Thu Feb 11, 09:35 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon's pass-catching ability impressed offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt this past season.

Footballguys view: Gordon can make big plays in space, and that's why he can stand out as a receiver. He's a fast back who had a disappointing rookie season. We're not writing off Gordon, and with the right system he could flourish for the Chargers.

  Chargers | Tight ends to be issue for Chargers?    Tue Feb 2, 02:46 PM

San Diego Chargers TEs Antonio Gates, Ladarius Green, David B. Johnson and John Phillips will all become free agents if they are not re-signed by March 9. Gates is expected to return, however.

Footballguys view: Gates seems like one of those players that is going to retire with the team he started with. The former basketball star was quite a find for the Chargers, and he proved last year that he's still got something left in the tank. The Green experiment is over as he never played up to his potential with the Chargers. Phillips is a nice all-purpose tight end, but he does get banged up a lot. The position is clearly going to be one of emphasis in the offseason.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates likely to return    Tue Feb 2, 01:36 AM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates is likely to return in 2016. Gates, who will turn 36 in June, has given no indications he's ready to retire.

Footballguys view: Gates may not be the same player he used to be, but he proved in 2015 that there's still plenty left in the tank.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers considered retirement    Tue Jan 26, 08:03 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers considered retirement after the 2014 season when he dealt with rib and back injuries. He eventually signed a four-year contract extension last August, and Rivers now says he feels far better this offseason than last. 'This year, physically, I'm great. Emotionally, it's been rough, but I'm excited -- I really am excited about who the new core is going to be. I'm excited to be part of that group. I'm waiting for it, kind of letting them take it. ... It's not going to be the buddies I came with; they're going to be gone,' Rivers said.

Footballguys view: Every longtime starting quarterback gets to that point in their career, so it's no surprise to read this report about Rivers. Things are up in the air with the Chargers right now, but Rivers will be there to lead the way in 2016.

  Chargers | Jeff Davidson added to staff    Thu Jan 14, 05:53 PM

Free-agent offensive line coach Jeff Davidson (Vikings) was hired to be the new offensive line coach of the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: The Chargers offensive line needs att the help it can get, though coming from a mess of an offensive line in Minnesota, is this guy the answer?

  Chargers | Ken Whisenhunt re-joins Chargers    Wed Jan 13, 03:44 PM

Former Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt has been hired as the offensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers. Whisenhunt was San Diego's offensive coordinator in 2013.

Footballguys view: This is a good move for the Chargers. The offense was horrible this year, but with Whisenhunt running the show in 2013 they were fifth in total offense, fourth in passing, and 13th in rushing.

  Chargers | Bob Babich new linebackers coach    Tue Jan 12, 04:04 PM

  Chargers | Mike McCoy extended    Fri Jan 8, 01:04 PM

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy received a contract extension through the 2017 season.

Footballguys view: There have already been multiple changes with the Chargers, but they wanted to keep McCoy around. Six assistants were fired earlier this week as injuries decimated the Chargers season.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers threw the most in 2015     Tue Jan 5, 08:13 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers led the league with 661 pass attempts this season -- the most since Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw an all-time record 727 times in 2012. His 661 attempts were also the sixth most all time in one season.

Footballguys view: Rivers had to throw a lot because the defense would get them in trouble, and they struggled to run the ball. We expect the team to work diligently in order to fix the ground game. That means we could see fewer attempts from Rivers in 2016.

  Chargers | John Pagano could be fired    Tue Jan 5, 02:50 PM

San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano is at risk of being let go. He's been in the same position for the Chargers since 2012.

Footballguys view: We're actually surprised John Pagano hasn't been let go already. The Chargers fired OC Frank Reich on Monday, and they may not be done making changes to the staff.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead leads RBs in receiving    Mon Jan 4, 05:54 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead led all running backs in targets (107), receptions (81), receiving yards (756) and receiving touchdowns (6) this season.

Footballguys view: Woodhead finished the year as the 3rd-highest scoring RB in PPR leagues. Many changes are coming in 2016 for the Chargers, but Woodhead should continue to be featured in the offense as a pass-catching and change-of-pace back.

  Chargers | Frank Reich fired    Mon Jan 4, 04:48 PM

San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich was fired Monday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: The Chargers offense was 9th in total yards, but they were only 26th in scoring. Ravaged by injuries this year, the Chargers and QB Philip Rivers made the most of it. We should see HC Mike McCoy take on a larger role with the offense in 2016.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon to have surgery    Mon Jan 4, 02:42 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) is scheduled to have surgery on his torn knee cartilage. He is expected to make a full recovery, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Footballguys view: This surgery sounds minor, but it's still knee surgery for a young back pegged as the franchise runner for the team. Gordon should be ready for the offseason program, but the team may limit him until training camp. He had a disappointing rookie season with 641 yards on 3.5 yards per carry. We'll see if Gordon can get healthy, stay healthy and be more effective in his second season.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates finds end zone    Mon Jan 4, 01:19 AM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted five times.

Footballguys view: Covering tight ends is a trouble spot for the Broncos. An opponent in the playoffs should try to pick on the linebackers in coverage to move the ball against that suffocating defense.

San Diego Chargers FS Eric Weddle (groin) was running sprints in front of the media during practice Thursday, Dec. 31, three days after he was placed on the Reserve/Injured list against his wishes. Weddle showed good agility and looked to be running at full speed. He will not travel with the Chargers in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: The split between the Chargers and Weddle has been chasm-like and it is unlikely he returns. There should be a nice market for his services as a free agent.

Footballguys view: Antonio Gates was supposed to fade this year and Green was supposed to emerge as the TE of the future for the Chargers. Well, that didn't happen. He had a career-high 37 catches for 429 yards and four touchdowns, but Green wasn't a consistent force to be reckoned with. Green enters free agency in 2016.
