Kurt Warner thinks Tom Brady should play for this specific AFC team

NFL Network analyst and Hall of Famer Kurt Warner has an idea of where Brady will go, rather, where he should play if it's not in New England. "I still don't look to go to the Raiders or the Chargers and have to compete against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs twice every year just to win my division," Warner said at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on Thursday, according to Nate Davis of USA Today Sports. "I don't want to have to go through the other great quarterback in the AFC rig...

Chargers 2019 NFL draft needs: Finding Philip Rivers’ successor, upgrading offensive line

The Chargers spent top-15 draft picks on Melvin Gordon and Mike Williams to give Philip Rivers weapons for a late-career push at a Super Bowl. But the results didn’t show until last season when the Chargers transformed into one of the best offenses in the NFL en route to a playoff appearance. Rivers, 37, enjoyed his best season in years with a stacked offense that didn’t include tight end Hunter Henry, who missed all of the regular season with a torn ACL. With a healthy Henry, the Chargers are e...

Rams 2019 NFL draft needs: Depleted offensive line could use some help

As Sean McVay turned a hapless mess of an offense into a machine-like juggernaut over the past two seasons, the Rams wunderkind coach was fortunate to have unprecedented consistency along the offensive line. At the outset of Year 3, however, that’s no longer the case up front. Two of the Rams’ most consistent veteran linemen from a year ago have moved on, leaving the offense to count on two inexperienced interior linemen in their place. How McVay chooses to fill those holes up front – and whethe...

Westlake’s Terrell Vaughn deemed eligible by CIF-SS after seven-week wait

Westlake senior football player Terrell Vaughn is finally eligible to play, according to a ruling by the CIF Southern Section. For seven weeks, Vaughn has been watching from the sideline. Each passing week, the speedy wideout anticipated the news that would deem him eligible to play after transferring from Newbury Park last summer. Vaughn’s initial request to CIF was a hardship waiver, but it was denied. The second request, under a valid change of address, was designated as approved Monday on th...

Westlake football remains unbeaten with narrow win over Oxnard

THOUSAND OAKS >> Friday’s nonleague football matchup with Oxnard High was a grind for No. 3 Westlake, as turnovers and faulty execution in Oxnard territory had the Warriors in harm’s way. Except, they had Jason Heller on their side. The diminutive Westlake slot receiver played big when the Warriors needed him most, coming up with big play after big play to help Westlake slug its way past the Yellowjackets, 24-20, in a battle of unbeatens. Westlake gets ready to take the field against Oxnard,...

Alexander: Could Chargers have their own success story in second L.A. season?

COSTA MESA — If many of the people who predict and dispense opinions about the NFL for a living are correct, the Chargers will win a division championship in their second season in L.A. That script does sound familiar, doesn’t it? Of course, if it happens the story arc might not be nearly as dramatic as that of their future Inglewood bunkmates, the Rams. But it would be a fascinating journey in its own way. The experts see an offense of stars (Philip Rivers, Melvin Gordon, Keenan Allen) and a de...

Creek Fire victims are at different stages of getting back their homes

Ethan Davis walked over the charred earth in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains where a house once stood. “My room was right here,” he said with a gesture. Davis, 27, had moved to greater Los Angeles from Florida last year, on the lure of doing electrical work in Hollywood. So far, he has relied on odd jobs and had rented a room in the small, single-story house from Curtis Brown, who had lived here for eight years. Like others in the path of the Creek Fire, one of several massive fires t...
