The Los Angeles Chargers play their final preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers. Even so, the 53-man roster seems set for the 2023 NFL Season, and this last preseason game seems more tailored toward finding the practice squad roster. Tyler and Zac project both rosters based on training camp storylines and who has emerged in games against the Rams and Saints. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
In this episode, we breakdown the 2023 roster of our AFC West rivals the Denver Broncos. With Sean Peyton now at the helm of the coaching staff, will he be able to unlock all of Russel Wilson's potential at quarterback? Denver returns most of its defense which was a highlight of last year. If they can repeat their success the Broncos could be a team to watch out for. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
In this episode, we break down the 2023 roster of our division rivals, the Las Vegas Raiders. The outlook of this team points to them finishing last in the AFC West with 5-6 total wins. They swapped QB Derek Carr, who holds numerous team passing records, for the often-injured Jimmy Garoppalo. They are struggling to come to terms on a long-term contract with RB Josh Jacobs, who is currently franchised tagged. They added to their wide receiver that already included Davante Adams, and traded away their star tight end Darren Waller. The offensive line is the same starting five from a season ago and should gel better than the previous season. Defensively is where this roster starts to fall apart. Maxx Crosby is a bonafide defensive player of the year candidate, and the drafting of edge rusher Tyree Wilson will pay dividends in future years, but there are question marks with Jerry Tillery, Bilal Nichols, and a large number of young interior talent fighting for a roster spot. Devine Diablo is a breakout candidate, but a combination of Robert Spillane, Luke Masterson, and Darian Beavers shows the weakness of this position. The secondary also has more question marks without a single lockdown defensive back worthy of a big-time contract. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

In this podcast episode, we analyzed the top interior pass rushers in the 2023 NFL Draft. We discussed seven promising prospects, including Jalen Carter from Georgia, Bryan Breese from Clemson, Mazi Smith from Michigan, Calijah Kancey from Pittsburgh, Siaki Ika from Baylor, Tuli Tuipulotu from USC, and Keion White from Georgia Tech. We examined each player's strengths and weaknesses, college performance, and potential fit with the Los Angeles Chargers. We highlighted their physical attributes, technique, and ability to disrupt the quarterback's pocket. Jalen Carter, with his quickness and explosiveness, is a versatile defensive lineman who can play multiple positions. Bryan Breese, an impressive athlete, is known for his speed and power. Mazi Smith is a disruptive force with his strength and agility, while Calijah Kancey is a powerful, hard-hitting defender with impressive hand usage. Siaki Ika's brute strength and size make him a difficult player to move off the line, while Tuli Tuipulotu's quick hands and ability to get low to the ground make him a formidable opponent. Finally, Keion White, with his impressive burst and agility, is a promising prospect who could develop into a productive pass rusher at the next level. Overall, these seven players are among the most promising interior pass rushers in the 2023 NFL Draft, and we look forward to seeing how they will perform in the upcoming season.

The Los Angeles Chargers had their season ended with heartbreak. After starting with a 27-0 lead, the Chargers fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars by a last-second field goal. In Justin Herbert’s playoff debut, the Bolts failed to score points in the second half of the game and embarrassingly lost in one of the biggest playoff comebacks in NFL history. Last year, it was the Charger's inability to defend the run on defense that lost them games. This year, it was their inability to establish the run on offense. They managed just seven total rushing yards in the second half of the wildcard round, paving the way for Jaguar's epic comeback and leading to the loss of employment for Joe Lombardi and Shane Day. We touch on some offensive coordinator replacements to close out the season. The guys refused to fall into the doom and gloom of the wildcard loss and opted for some exciting news. Great things are in store for Shock Therapy, including joining a new network: Belly Up Sports. Get ready for Season 3! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Lots going on as the Los Angeles Chargers are headed to playoffs. First, the Chargers lost to the Denver Broncos in a meaningless game. To add insult to injury, Brandon Staley took quite a bit of slack for letting his starters play as much as he did with scared to Mike Williams, Joey Bosa, and Kenneth Murray, and keeping Justin Herbert in as long as he did. Nothing major, but the entire NFL world has had something to say about it. Now the Chargers travel to Jacksonville to play the 4th seed and AFC South Divisional winners. The Jaguars are the most surprising team to make playoffs, and if the Chargers are as good as the preseason hype indicated, they should make short work of Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars.

The first regular season battle for SoFi Stadium was won by the Los Angeles Chargers. The Los Angeles Rams were not at full strength, but the record books will show that the Chargers are 1-0 against their roommates. Austin Ekeler won AFC Player of the Week after averaging over 10 yards a carry and adding two touchdowns to his league-leading total. Joey Bosa returned on a snap count and will look to add more playing time against the Denver Broncos as the Chargers continue playoff preparations. The NFL regular season may be coming to an end, but there are still nearly two months of football left if the Chargers can keep this win streak alive. The Chargers started 2023 off with a jolt of lightning. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
