On offense, two players who emerged as starters late last season will now handle those roles on a full-time basis. On defense, the League's best ball-hawking secondary has a new linchpin. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/779933-three-to-watch-gambling-on-green-starters 2047 Samantha Fillerup http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/779933-three-to-watch-gambling-on-green-starters Sat, 16 Aug 2008 05:09:00 GMT 0 102 San Diego sdg Scout Three to Watch: Chargers Injuries Will the San Diego Chargers have all the right tools in place to live up to what some are predicting as their best season yet?

Team expert Michael Lombardo begins a new series profiling some of these options and explaining how they work.

To generate a smooth transition, the Bolts second and third draft selections provide a dynamite combo that should fill the void. Additionally, the Bolts snagged four undrafted players who prepare to combat for roster spots. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/756358-breaking-down-the-bolts-running-backs 2047 Jaime Cattano http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/756358-breaking-down-the-bolts-running-backs Wed, 21 May 2008 04:44:00 GMT 1 102 San Diego sdg Scout Bolts Release Neal, McCree and Olivea The Chargers announced today that veterans Lorenzo Neal, Marlon McCree and Shane Olivea have been released. All three began the 2006 season in the starting lineup, only to see their playing time decrease as the season wore on. The only surprise on the list is Olivea, whose fate was sealed when the Chargers signed Scott Mruczkowski to a three-year extension. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/733013-bolts-release-neal-mccree-and-olivea 2047 SDBoltReport.com Staff http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/733013-bolts-release-neal-mccree-and-olivea Thu, 28 Feb 2008 23:25:00 GMT 0 102 San Diego sdg Scout SD's running back needs Gross-ly overstated The Bolts will lose the best backup running back in the NFL this offseason when Michael Turner sells his 5.5 ypc to the highest bidder. But don't expect A.J. Smith to scurry in search of a replacement. Tyronne Gross is more than ready to split time with Darren Sproles as LaDainian Tomlinson's backup. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/730068-sd-s-running-back-needs-gross-ly-overstated 2047 Michael Lombardo http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/730068-sd-s-running-back-needs-gross-ly-overstated Mon, 18 Feb 2008 23:46:00 GMT 1 102 San Diego sdg Scout Behind Enemy Lines: Chargers vs. Titans II Our Scout.com experts, Jimmy Morris of TitansInsiders.com and Michael Lombardo of SDBoltReport.com, analyze Sunday's playoff game between the Titans and Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium.

The Chargers (9-5) have won a season-high four straight games and eight of their past 10. Plus, they have their playoff invitation tucked away by winning their third AFC West crown in four seasons. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/713065-bolts-getting-hot 2047 SDBoltReport.com Staff http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/713065-bolts-getting-hot Thu, 20 Dec 2007 03:39:00 GMT 0 102 San Diego sdg Scout Bolts Work Over Lions The Chargers have upped the ante after clobbering the Detroit Lions and clinching the AFC West. The disciplined troops set new records, clearing the bench and revealing remarkable depth. Sizzling as a whole and capitalizing on every opportunity, the Chargers are contenders once again. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/712782-bolts-work-over-lions 2047 Jaime Cattano http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/712782-bolts-work-over-lions Wed, 19 Dec 2007 06:37:00 GMT 1 102 San Diego sdg Scout Chargers-Lions Gameday Primer The Chargers look to tie up the AFC West title and eliminate the Detroit Lions from the postseason picture when the teams collide on Sunday. The Chargers are riding a three-game winning streak, but will be without some key players who made that possible.

However, they're still on the wall because their Pro Bowlers had a great fall. It's time for their backups to put the Chargers together again. Here are five key players to watch in Sunday's game. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/711485-five-to-watch-chargers-vs-lions 2047 Amberly Richardson http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/711485-five-to-watch-chargers-vs-lions Sat, 15 Dec 2007 00:47:00 GMT 1 102 San Diego sdg Scout Can SD seal the deal? After 13 weeks of turbulence, the Chargers are finally where they want to be: one win away from their third AFC West championship in four years. San Diego has three chances wrap up the division, with the first coming this Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium, where the Chargers have won 13 of their last 14. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/711290-can-sd-seal-the-deal 2047 Michael Lombardo http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/711290-can-sd-seal-the-deal Fri, 14 Dec 2007 06:00:00 GMT 1 102 San Diego sdg Scout Which backups will step up on Sunday? The Chargers' injury report will be littered with big names this week. Lorenzo Neal is out for the rest of the regular season. Shawne Merriman and Luis Castillo will be inactive against Detroit. And Jamal Williams is a big-time question mark with a badly sprained ankle.

If Chris Chambers acclimates quickly and Cory Withrow picks up where Nick Hardwick left off, the Chargers will claim the NFL's most potent scoring unit. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/692319-chambers-ready-to-make-a-splash 2047 SDBoltReport.com Staff http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/692319-chambers-ready-to-make-a-splash Fri, 19 Oct 2007 03:37:00 GMT 0 102 San Diego sdg Scout Are Resurgent Raiders the Best in the West? The Chargers 38-point win in Denver conjured up memories of a dominant '06 season. Watching film on the '07 Raiders had no such effect. Oakland returns its stingy defense and adds to it a potent running game and a quarterback who can make plays with his arms and legs. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/689812-are-resurgent-raiders-the-best-in-the-west 2047 SDBoltReport.com Staff http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/689812-are-resurgent-raiders-the-best-in-the-west Fri, 12 Oct 2007 03:26:00 GMT 0 102 San Diego sdg Scout Chargers Get a Bolt of Confidence A look at the standings shows the Chargers as a 2-3 team.

As the players work to put a positive spin on their downward spiral, the coaches add another Pro Bowl performer to the injury list and learn that Eric Parker's situation is worse than originally expected. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/686413-gray-clouds-invade-sd-skies 2047 SDBoltReport.com Staff http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/686413-gray-clouds-invade-sd-skies Wed, 03 Oct 2007 02:33:00 GMT 1 102 San Diego sdg Scout Bolts to Bombard with Blitzes Games like this are exactly why the Chargers installed the 3-4 defense. Tom Brady is arguably the best quarterback in the league and has more weapons than the New York Police Department. The Chargers must get to Brady before he carves up their secondary like a holiday bird. http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/680206-bolts-to-bombard-with-blitzes 2047 SDBoltReport.com Staff http://www.scout.com/nfl/chargers/story/680206-bolts-to-bombard-with-blitzes Sun, 16 Sep 2007 06:39:00 GMT 0 102 San Diego sdg Scout Chargers Cut Six The Chargers got a head start on their final cuts, releasing six players.
