it's 'uh-oh' and three for the chargers, who haven't won a game since their move


the next home of the chargers is just a hole now, a big dug-out crater in inglewood that won’t be finished until 2020.the team is in an even deeper hole at 0-3 — and it’s nowhere near where the chargers expected to be at this point of the season..the chargers already have two losses in the toughest division in the nfl, the afc west.kansas city, which posted a 24-10 road victory over them sunday, is the best team in the league through three weeks.the chargers caught a break with both oakland and denver losing on the road sunday, but the raiders and broncos are legitimate playoff contenders.nobody on the chargers roster was in the league the last time the team went 0-3.“we’re in a very unique place where this is a good test of all the guys in this locker room,” chargers tight end antonio gat






nfl week 3 live: players protests taking place around the league


chargers (0-2) vs. kansas city chiefs (2-0)when chargers have the ballit’s a little baffling that the chargers have been unable to get melvin gordon and the rushing attack into a rhythm through the first two games, considering coach anthony lynn’s pedigree. against miami, the chargers took to the air to get gordon involved, and maybe that forces kansas city to thin out up front. when philip rivers goes back to pass, he’ll have to keep an eye on justin houston, one of the best pass rushers in the league. houston has three sacks already and should be a big test for the chargers’ offensive line, which will miss backup tackle chris hairston. a consistent rushing attack should keep kansas city from being able to unleash the defense at rivers. antonio gates and hunter henry had nearly 100 yards






raiders' vs. chargers isn't a `must' win, but it's close


oakland — there are no mathematical computations which will eliminate the raiders from the playoff race should they lose sunday to the los angeles chargers.not even close. at 2-4, they’d be last in the afc west but still have 10 games to play with two division games to play against the chiefs and still one more to go against the broncos and chargers.you wouldn’t know it from the radio airwaves or social media, where mole hills routinely become mountains too high to climb.so it’s not surprising there were no raiders biting this week on the subject of a “must-win” against the san diego chargers following three consecutive losses.“obviously, we need a win,” coach jack del rio said. “it’s about us preparing, coming out and playing good football. that’s all we want to be about is good football.






chargers can't overcome rivers' miscues in 24-10 loss to chiefs


philip rivers took the glove off his non-throwing left hand and tossed it into the air. he snapped off his chin guard and took off his helmet, looking into the sky with exasperation on his face.the glove fell directly onto the grass at stubhub center sunday afternoon. thankfully, no kansas city chiefs were around or they would’ve probably intercepted it too.rivers threw three interceptions -- with a few more nearly picked -- in the chargers’ 24-10 defeat, dropping them to 0-3 for the season.of the 25,386 fans, an announced sellout, plenty in red had chances to roar at rivers’ miscues.rivers finished 20-of-40 passing for 237 yards. alex smith, his counterpart, only had five incomplete passing attempts all game.the chargers' first two drives of the game ended with rivers' interceptions, and

chargers to release former first-rounder d.j. fluker and two others


the chargers are releasing former first-round pick d.j. fluker, a move that gives a massive boast to their salary cap situation while creating more holes on their offensive line.the team is also cutting veteran cornerback brandon flowers and wide receiver stevie johnson.the three moves give the chargers more than $19 million in additional cap space as they enter free agency this week.fluker, whom the team selected 11th overall in the 2013 draft, started all 16 games last season at guard for the chargers. but his inconsistent performances made fluker and the $8.8 million due to him next season expendable.he’s also played tackle for the chargers in the past.the chargers, who entered this week with approximately $6 million in cap room, are expected to actively look for ways to upgrade their o

another defeat comes to pass for 0-3 chargers, who lose another at home, 24-10 t


philip rivers walked toward the chargers bench early in the second quarter, exasperated with how the ball had just left his hand. he ripped off the glove he wears on his left hand and flung it into the air. he unsnapped his chin strap, took off his helmet and looked to the sky.the glove fell harmlessly to the ground, but given the way things went sunday in the chargers’ 24-10 loss to kansas city, rivers was lucky that didn’t get intercepted too.three rivers passes were intercepted in the team’s first 24 plays and the resulting short fields led to 17 easy points for the chiefs in front of an announced sellout of 25,386 at stubhub center.“i really just was never in any kind of groove the whole day,” rivers said somberly. “shoot, any time the quarterback plays that poorly, it’s going to be to

the clippers traded deandre liggins and cash to the atlanta hawks, according to an nba official who was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.the move allowed the clippers to create a $1.67 million trade exception, which they have to use within a year.liggins was acquired in the chris paul deal that sent him to the houston rockets in june.and by making this move, the clippers dropped $122,000 below the luxury tax level.they now have 19 players on their roster for training camp that starts tuesday at the university of hawaii.caption"you might say we're the same old chargers ... well right now, we are." head coach anthony lynn and quarterback philip rivers discuss the 24-10 loss to the chiefs.

mistakes on special teams prove costly for chargers in loss to chiefs

chargers' signing of tackle russell okung comes with controversy


sometimes the holes on a nfl roster can be difficult to spot, with depth issues showing up late in games, inexperience manifesting in penalties or a simplified playbook, or a key injury here or there completely changing the dynamic of a team.or, sometimes, there’s just a big, giant 300-plus pound hole that obviously needs to be filled.thursday, on the first day of the nfl’s new league calendar, the chargers made a big move toward filling that hole, agreeing to a four-year deal with offensive tackle russell okung.the contract is worth more than $50 million with $25 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports.okung, a former first-round pick of the seattle seahawks, pro bowl player in 2012 and super bowl champion, spent last season with the denver broncos. he’ll be asked to protect cha

chiefs, chargers add offensive firepower to afc west early in nfl draft


afc west teams added excitement to the draft thursday night with two broncos rivals making splashes to add offensive talent.kansas city moved from pick 27 to no. 10 to draft quarterback patrick mahomes from texas tech. it gave up its first-round pick this year, a third-round pick and a 2018 first-round pick, to get its quarterback of the future.it was a stunning move considering the chiefs’ allegiance to veteran quarterback alex smith and the fact that deshaun watson of national champion clemson was still on the board.mahomes led all fbs teams with 5,052 passing yards this past season. chiefs coach andy reid has had a lot of success grooming quarterbacks and he now has a new prize pupil.smith may still be the chiefs starting quarterback in 2017, but mahomes will likely be expected to take

chargers looking to improve with low-key moves


when the first ball is snapped inside the delightfully intimate stubhub center and the chargers really become los angeles’ team, they’ll have an opportunity to truly build a fan base and a buzz around the team.in the meantime, they’re kind of stuck.still working out of offices that say “san diego chargers” on the façade, the team’s slogan (“fight for l.a.”) has become a long-distance cry. as they try and find a slice of their new town’s attention, they might be tempted to do something ill-conceived, to “make a splash” in order to get their new town talking.luckily, obtaining two or three mega free agents wouldn’t solve the needs in the chargers’ personnel. and their checkbook won’t allow for it, either.with a modest budget and their biggest ticket item — pass rusher melvin ingram — franchi
