The Los Angeles Chargers are in a tough spot with star player Austin Ekeler who has aired his unhappiness with his contract. There's no doubt that he has outplayed his contract and deserves more, but it seems unlikely the Chargers or any other team will meet those demands. The hosts discuss what kind of extension they would be willing to extend Eke…
 
Free Agency has been great for the Los Angeles Chargers clearing cap space and filling major starting roles with Eric Kendricks and Trey Pipkins. Tom Telesco has done a good job not overpaying so far, but will have to find more great deals to fill in the cracks on the Chargers roster. With most starting jobs accounted for the key depth pieces are w…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers let Drue Tranquill leave in free agency in favor of Eric Kendricks and now he will join the rival Chiefs. How much did the Chargers want their former linebacker back?

Free Agent Dalton Schultz would be a perfect fit for the Los Angeles Chargers new offense after blossoming under offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. The Chargers have reportedly shown interest, but making the money work seems nearly impossible given their cap space. Austin Ekeler has now been granted the ability to seek a trade but a slow moving RB…
 
Morgan Fox was excellent for the Los Angeles Chargers in 2022 and even after his most successful season, the team was able to bring him back in free agency. This was an incredibly important signing for the Chargers as Fox has been quietly one of the better interior rushers in the NFL and would have been very hard to replace. Now that Fox is back, h…
 
The NFL's legal tampering period brought about plenty of player movement which means winners and losers across the league. On today's episode, Joe Marino and Kyle Crabbs break down why the Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets and New England Patriots most moved the needle in how they did and did not improve during the legal tampering per…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers found a way to retain Trey Pipkins, one of their most important starters heading into free agency. Right tackle has been a sore spot for a while and if Pipkins keeps playing well, this could be an absolute steal. Part of the fallout of the latest move is the Chargers releasing starting guard Matt Feiler to save cap. He was …
 
The Los Angeles Chargers saw fireworks on Day 1 of free agency, but the biggest surprise was Austin Ekeler requesting a trade after extension talks failed. He has far exceeded his contract, but the Chargers smartly are weighing their options. Los Angeles did dip into the free agent pool bringing in former Vikings LB Eric Kendricks. Does this mean s…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers found a way to get under the NFL salary cap while finding a way to keep their stars like Keenan Allen and Joey Bosa.

This extra space allows the Chargers a chance to ke…

Meanwhile the Kansas City Chiefs look to saddle Patrick Mahomes with a top-end pass-catching threat a…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers have their franchise quarterback in Justin Herbert and should extend him before the others in his class like Joe Burrow. Will the Lamar Jackson contract situation lead to Herbert ask for a fully guaranteed contract? With the draft coming up, the hosts wonder if this will be the year Tom Telesco will trade back for the first…
 
Morgan Fox and Kyle Van Noy saved the Chargers defensively in 2022, and they will need to find new low cost vets to fill those roles. Michael Brockers and Troy Hill could be buy low candidates that could want to regain value under their former coach Brandon Staley. Leonard Floyd is out of the Chargers price range, but DeMarcus Walker would be a che…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers will be on a strict budget as they enter the free agency period and offensively they should take flyers on some discount different makers. RB Raheem Mostert could make sense as a home run threat for the backfield, that shouldn't break the bank. D'Ernest Johnson is another back that could add some competition to the running …
 
The Los Angeles Chargers have stalwarts Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack at EDGE rusher but should look for another contributor early in the 2023 NFL Draft. If they elect to go rusher in round one, LSU's BJ Ojulari could make an impact early and serve as a great insurance plan to the Chargers stars. Ojulari would bring some speed and bend to the LA pass r…
 
Some Chargers starters will likely be cap casualties in the coming weeks including productive tight end Gerald Everett. The money has to come from somewhere, but Everett's contributions will not be easily replaced with an unclear backup plan. The guys also discuss if Los Angeles will stick to best player available in the first round of the draft, e…
 
Chargers receiver Keenan Allen has constantly been the topic of trade and cut rumors, but Tom Telesco shut that talk down. The Los Angeles general manager all but guaranteed Allen will be with the team in 2023 and that is great news for Justin Herbert. In worse news, the NFLPA surveyed every team and the Chargers earned a scathing review. The team …
 
The Los Angeles Chargers have less cap flexibility this offseason but Brandon Staley likes where the roster is at. Compared to 2022, the Chargers have more starting spots accounted for but will need to find a couple of them in the draft. Staley gushed over his new coordinators Kellen Moore and Derrick Ansley, and gave insight on why the Chargers mo…
 
Some Chargers should be greatly improved in 2023, but Asante Samuel Jr.'s aggressive streak could launch him into NFL stardom in Los Angeles. Will he continue to be a ballhawk, or will his boom or bust style end up backfiring? WR Joshua Palmer and RB Josh Kelley both took strides in 2022, and will be looking to expand their roles on offense. Who th…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers may look for a wide receiver in round one of the draft and Zay Flowers checks a lot of boxes. Although very small by NFL standards, Flowers is a nightmare in the open field and brings the juice the Chargers have desperately needed. TCU's Quentin Johnston has also been linked to Los Angeles and brings a level of speed the te…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers are in a dire salary cap situation, but if they play their cards right they can get under the cap without losing their biggest stars. Restructuring contracts comes with consequences, but the risk may be worth it to make another run with Joey Bosa and Keenan Allen in 2023. Unlike reports have suggested, the Chargers defensiv…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers could address one of many needs in the first round of the draft but running back is low on the list. Texas’ RB Bijan Robinson has so many special traits, that the team will have to consider him if he’s available at pick 21. The Chargers could just decide to go all offense early on to truly maximize Justin Herbert. What they…
 
Los Angeles allowed defensive coordinator Renaldo Hill to take a demotion in Miami, but it could be a blessing in disguise. Hill may have saw the writing on the wall in LA, or maybe the Chargers will get more from new DC Derrick Ansley. After failing to get the most out of a defense with stars like Derwin James and Joey Bosa, a change felt necessar…
 
Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack are great but the Los Angeles Chargers could look to invest in an edge rusher like Georgia's Nolan Smith in the first round of the draft. Smith's could be the heir to the pass rushing throne, but also has the ability to make an impact in 2023 and provide injury insurance. If they wait to find a pass-rusher, they could targ…
 
Justin Herbert should be in for a bounce back season with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore at the helm, but can we expect MVP type production? A more balanced offense should lead to more chances, but the clearest path to improvement is getting healthier in 2023. The weapons at Justin Herbert's disposal could change dramatically depending on Keena…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers have hired Doug Nussmeier to be their new quarterbacks coach and he will be the latest tasked unlocking Justin Herbert’s potential.

The guys discuss why Kincaid would fill one of th…
 
With limited cap space, the Los Angeles Chargers are pressed for options in free agency but should prioritize re-signing Drue Tranquill and Trey Pipkins.

Los Angeles Chargers star pass rusher Joey Bosa had a frustrating season in 2022, but is still performing at an elite level and remains an integral part of the team. The Chargers are in win-now mode and trading Bosa or moving on from Khalil Mack seems incredibly unlikely at this point. The best way for the pass rush to get better is both star rushe…
 
The Los Angeles Chargers face many tough decisions ahead but the most difficult may be what to do with star wide receiver Keenan Allen. With the Chargers well over the cap threshold, releasing or trading Allen is becoming more likely even though he is still producing at a high level. There is only so much money to move around and Los Angeles must w…
