What comes next after drama-filled 2018 season for Chargers?

Keenan Allen stalled as he slowly put on his “Slayer” merchandise. The Chargers’ wide receiver began to promote his clothing line by showing a gray beanie to the horde of media surrounding his locker. Allen was selling, but maybe he was buying time. Allen was still in shock and not prepared to provide answers for an embarrassing 41-28 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday that ended the Chargers’ season with a thud. Time was up. Allen put on the beanie and faced the music. Sign up for Home Tu...

Chargers QB Philip Rivers to miss Pro Bowl with ankle injury

Quarterback Philip Rivers will not play in the Pro Bowl because of an ankle injury, a Chargers official told the Southern California News Group on Tuesday. Rivers was replaced on the AFC roster by Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Rivers injured his ankle in the second half of the Chargers’ 41-28 playoff loss to the New England Patriots last week at Gillette Stadium. The injury is perceived as not serious and more of a safety precaution. Many veterans tend to skip the annual all-star game for rest ...

Daddy’s Hangout NFL 2019 Conference Championships Prediction

We’re down to the Final Four of the NFL. In the AFC, we have the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the defending conference champs, New England Patriots. While in the NFC, we have the New Orleans Saints hosting the Los Angeles Rams. My picks from last week had me guessing three out of the four teams correctly. My only blemish was thinking the Chargers would go to Foxboro and upset the Patriots. As we saw, New England dominated the game from the beginning. Tom Brady was as efficient as ever throwing f...

Philip Rivers was looking for flags "every other play," says Dont'a Hightower originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers wasn't the main reason why his team got trounced by the New England Patriots in Sunday's AFC Divisional Round playoff game at Gillette Stadium, but his lackluster performance in the 41-28 loss certainly was a factor. Rivers was ineffective most of the game, especially in the first half when the Pats jumped out to a ...

Alexander: Still an uphill battle for Chargers in L.A.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — On the field, as long as you discount Sunday’s boat race against the Patriots, the 2018 season was an unqualified success for the Chargers. A 12-4 regular season, one playoff win, and a core of young, talented players suggest a bright future. On the streets and in the boardrooms and living rooms of L.A., do people care? When the TV ratings come in for Sunday’s Divisional Round playoff game in Foxborough, they probably will show a healthy number nationally and a slight bump in ...

Alexander: Strong Chargers’ season ends with an abysmal day against Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — A helpful Patriots fan draped a banner over the field railing at Gillette Stadium before Sunday’s game. It read: “Ready The Gun Powdah.” For what? To put the visiting Chargers out of their misery? This dreary afternoon, this 48-21 beatdown by New England in the AFC Divisional Round, was like playing Madden and setting it to “extreme embarrassment” level. This was a Chargers defense, so competent last week against a multi-dimensional rookie quarterback, reduced to pylons and b...

Antonio Gates doesn’t want his Chargers career to end with loss to Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — A year ago as his season ended, Antonio Gates said he wanted to return for another year and talked of his goal of getting to a Super Bowl. He may have been one of the few convinced that could happen as a Charger. And after being brought back in because of Hunter Henry’s injury, and being part of a team that got within two victories of Atlanta, the 38-year-old Gates indicated Sunday afternoon he’d like at least one more crack at it, as a Charger.

Patriots QB Tom Brady had no trouble against Chargers’ defensive scheme

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Chargers surprised the Baltimore Ravens by playing seven defensive backs for most of last week’s AFC wild-card playoff game. Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley didn’t cook up anything out of the ordinary against the New England Patriots for Sunday’s divisional-round playoff game. The Chargers started with a zone defense, a coverage that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has seen for years. Brady gladly took what the defense gave him, and had no trouble beating the co...

Chargers blame bus delay on Patriots . . . but the culprits were L.A.'s owners

The Patriots were in the minds of the Chargers before they even got off the buses. The convoy of Chargers buses -- one of which was carrying quarterback Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles coaches -- was delayed entry into Gillette Stadium Sunday morning because the Chargers owners were slow to unload their SUVs in front of them.
