In a recent interview with NFL.com, LaDainian Tomlinson continued his recent walk down the bitter trail by indicating that his lack of production over the past few seasons was due to the Chargers focus on the passing game….not his torn groin, numerous nagging injuries, lack of production, general attitude or age …as the real culprit.

- Kaeding does it again…best regular season kicker of all time. Watching the game, you just knew he was going to be King Shank all day.
- The Chargers D clearly missed their Pro-Bowler in the middle, Jamal Williams. […]
