NFL Regular Season Week 12 – The Charger Girls

It was a tale of two teams…one, a playoff contender and the other a team rebuilding from the bottom up.  This past Sunday, the Los Angeles Chargers, the playoff contender, hosted the Arizona Cardinals, the team in rebuild mode, and the outcome was as you would have expected. 

The Chargers so thoroughly dominated the Cardinals that they pulled starting quarterback Phillip Rivers early in the fourth quarter as to not pile it on the hapless visitors from Phoenix.  It was that lopsided.  But before he exited the game, Rivers passed for 259 yards and three touchdowns…he probably could have passed for two more TDs, but what was the point.  The Chargers had already lost their stud running back Melvin Gordon to a serious knee injury, so the time was right for Rivers to go.  Final score: Chargers – 45, Cardinals – 10.

On to better things…the Hottest Dance Team in the NFL, your Los Angeles Charger Girls.  Click here to view the Chargers game day gallery.

NFL Regular Season Week 11 – The Charger Girls

The Los Angeles Chargers lost a heartbreaking game to the Denver Broncos when Brandon McManus kicked a 34 yard field goal as time expired.  This loss was particularly meaningful because this game was winnable and with a win, the Chargers could have possibly tied the division leading Chiefs who were playing the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football.  But that wasn’t meant to be because the Broncos showed some fortitude and kept the score close until the fourth quarter, where they prevailed on McManus’ last second heroics.

Charger Philip Rivers had a mixed day, throwing for 401 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw two costly interceptions, one of which was nearly returned for a Broncos touchdown.  Final score: Broncos – 23, Chargers – 22.

This game was the Chargers Salute to Service game and the Charger Girls wore special military themed cheerleader uniforms.  Click here to view the Chargers gallery of images from Sunday.

NFL Regular Season Week 5 – The Charger Girls

Whenever the Raiders come to town, its a big deal for the Chargers.  The Raiders are a long time division rival who are also in state division rivals, so that’s doubly special.  When I was a Chargers season ticket holder, the Raiders game was always special.  The games were electric and there was a circus like atmosphere with all those passionate Raiders fans dressed up their colorful outfits.  It was a game that always had a special meaning even if those games weren’t always the most competitive.

It’s a rebuilding year for the Raiders and quite the opposite for the Chargers, who are one of the favorites to win the AFC West this year.  So it should come as no surprise that the Chargers rather easily handled the boys in silver and black.  The Chargers stormed out to a 17 – 3 half time lead and coasted to victory on the strength of Philip Rivers, who passed for 339 yards and two TDs.  Final Score: Chargers – 26, Raiders – 10.

NFL Regular Season Week 4 – The Charger Girls

We continue our coverage of Week 4 of the NFL regular season with a visit to Southern California, where the San Francisco 49ers came calling to play the Los Angeles Chargers.  In a surprisingly tight game, the Los Angeles Chargers survived a tough match up to defeat the 49ers 29 – 27.  The 49ers were starting their back up QB C.J. Beathard after starter Jimmy Garappolo was lost for the season last week and Beathard acquitted himself well, throwing for 298 yards and 2 TDs.  But that impressive debut was not enough to hold off the Chargers, who were led my veteran signal caller Philip Rivers and RB Melvin Gordon.

It was another hot day in Southern California with temperatures nearing 90 degrees, but things were not as hot as on the sidelines where the Charger Girls were performing.  Click here to view the Chargers game day gallery of images.


NFL Regular Season Week 1 – The Charger Girls

Rain wreaked havoc on many NFL games this weekend, but not in Southern California where it rains here about as often as we have earthquakes…not quite, but not often.  The weather was gorgeous and so were the Charger Girls.  See for yourself.  Click here to view the Chargers game day gallery.

NFL Preseason Week 2 – The Charger Girls

Up next in our tour of NFL cheerleading squads is the Charger Girls, a squad near and dear to my heart.  As a former long time Chargers season ticket holder, I am quite fond of the squad and have many good memories driving down to San Diego to watch them perform.  So, let’s take a look at this year’s group of Charger Girls as they performed during their Week 2 preseason game against the visiting Seattle Seahawks.  Click here to view the Chargers gallery of images from the game.

Renewal – The 2018 Los Angeles Charger Girls Auditions

As the Los Angeles Chargers embark on their second season in Los Angeles, a renewed sense of optimism has emerged with being the consensus front runner for the AFC West division title.  There is also new sense of optimism with respect to the Charger Girls as with every year, a new crop of Charger Girls emerges to take over the mantle from the previous squad. 

For me, the second best day in the life of a Chargers fan, aside from draft day, is the day when the new squad of Charger Girls is announced.   We are a few days away from that, but in this article, we will get a look at some of the young women trying out for the hottest dance team in the NFL, your Charger Girls.
