Have the Chargers Solved Their Kicking Issues? Last season Womens Michael Schofield Jersey , the Los Angeles Chargers were one game short of making the NFL playoffs with nine wins and seven losses. Arguably, the Chargers lost at least two games simply due to their inability to convert on field goal attempts that most teams’ kickers would have made.At the end of the preseason, the Chargers cut veteran kicker Josh Lambo in favor of rookie kicker Younghoe Koo. Lambo ended up signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars and played in the AFC Championship Game while Koo was cut after only four games and three missed field goals. The Chargers would cycle through three more kickers before the season ended. Nick Novak, Travis Coons, and Nick Rose combined to make 17 of 24 attempts.This offseason, Chargers general manager Tom Telesco decided not to return any of last season’s four kickers and brought in two veteran kickers to compete for the job in former Philadelphia Eagles kicker Caleb Sturgis and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Roberto Aguayo. Sturgis lost his job with the Eagles due to injury and Aguayo famously was overdrafted by the Bucs prior to an objectively disastrous run with them in which he missed 9 of 31 field goal attempts.The general sentiment heading into training camp was that the Chargers were in a relatively strong position in the kicking game given that Sturgis is a reliable veteran and Aguayo was unlikely to provide much challenge. Sturgis allowed Chargers fans to breathe a sigh of relief after he converted on his first attempt of the preseason, but then he missed his second. The question now is “have the Chargers solved their kicking woes from 2017?” Sturgis’ track record suggest the answer is “yes Authentic Keenan Allen Jersey ,” but Chargers fans have to still be nervous as we look forward to game 2 of the preseason.Update:Chargers have sold out of 2018 season tickets On the eve of the 2018 season, there is a little more positive news about the LA Chargers:They have officially sold out of season tickets for the year.Although critics might ho-hum and grumble about the non-news of selling out a 25,386-seat soccer stadium, it still bodes well for the team and franchise. Although official numbers haven’t been released as to the threshold of the sell-out, the Chargers official ticketing website does state that “roughly 500 single-game tickets will be available for each home game.” If this team starts the year with the traction gained down the stretch last year, it won’t be a surprise to formally sell out every seat for the season.FightForLA.comHowever, this does not compare favorably to the 2017 season Womens Virgil Green Jersey , where the Chargers were able to sell out by March 27. That said, there is the genuine possibility that tickets last season were purchased with the express intent of resell, capitalizing on the Chargers’ move to LA. This is corroborated by the low rate of use and successful resale of tickets.The Chargers’ move to LA was marred by bumps and bruises, but when the team began to settle in, the product on the field improved. At this point, the good news of the sellout can be construed as bad news when compared to last year. However, the numbers should align similarly to the number of seats spoken for. The difference that the Chargers will look forward to finding out this year is whether or not those spoken-for seats end up sat upon.But if you missed out on the chance to grab season tickets this year http://www.sandiegochargers...ite-jersey , don’t fret"you can still reserve your spot for season tickets. The caveat is that they are for the 2020 season, and that they’ll be for a yet-to-be-completed stadium and still-unknown pricing. It’ll cost $100, which is a refundable down-payment, to hold your spot in line for those 8-ticket packages. If the Chargers are able to sell-out their soon-to-be 70,000 seat venue, that will certainly bode well!-Jason “No Place Like Home” Michaels Custom Seattle Seahawks Jerseys
