Roundup: Reflecting on the Preseason Opener

Posted Aug 11, 2013

Check out all the articles, videos and photos Chargers.com has posted related to the preseason opener.

There was a lot to learn from Thursday’s preseason opener, and Chargers.com has spent the last three days analyzing each storyline.  Here is a recap in case you missed anything from the Chargers loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Despite the 31-10 outcome, the Chargers starters were quite impressive.  You can read all about it right here, then see what Philip Rivers and Dwight Freeney had to say below.



Early on in the game Mike McCoy decided to go for it on 4th-and-short, and that as well as other decisions showed what kind of game day head coach he'll be.  Then, watch McCoy's post-game press conference below.

We also got a potential glimpse of what the Chargers ground game will look like.  You can also hear Ryan Mathews discuss the rushing attack and more below.

The preseason opener also marked the first professional game for the Chargers rookies.  Click here to read about how the draft choices from D.J. Fluker to Brad Sorensen performed, then watch Manti Te'o in the locker room below.

The next morning, I wrote five lessons we learned from the game.  Read about it right here, and be sure to weigh in with lessons of your own in the comments section.  McCoy and Antonio Gates also spoke, with McCoy emphasizing how the team is looking for the best 53 players, while Gates explained how he demands excellence out of all the tight ends on the roster.  See what they had to say below.


While the Chargers hosted a number of alumni on Saturday, the big news came following practice when McCoy announced Te'o would be out the week with a foot sprain.  Watch his press conference below.

We caught up with Keenan Allen as he came off the field, and he provided this blog entry reflecting on his first NFL game

Finally, the preseason opener presented Jeromey Clary with his first game action at his new right guard position.  Click here to read about how his transition is going.
