Friday is the eighth day of Chargers Wire’s countdown to the Los Angeles Chargers’ training camp that begins on July 29. Each day we will count down the best Charger to wear each jersey number from No. 30 to No. 1.

As such, we take a look at the history of the No. 23 for the Bolts.

Currently, Chargers safety Dexter McCoil is wearing the number, but his impact was minimally felt with just 25 tackles and one interception last season meaning he was dropped from consideration immediately despite his promise.

Today is the sixth day of Chargers Wire’s countdown to the Los Angeles Chargers’ training camp that begins on July 29. Each day we will count down the best Charger to wear each jersey number from No. 30 to No. 1. Today we take a look at No. 25.

Currently, Chargers safety Darrell Stuckey wears the No. 25 for Los Angeles, but it is another safety who earns the honor of being the best No. 25 in the Chargers’ history, former Chargers safety Venice Glenn.

Glenn played five seasons and started 65 games for San Diego. During those five years, he hauled in 12 interceptions returning one for a touchdown, recovered six fumbles and had 311 tackles.

Sadly, the former NFL safety never made it to the playoffs with the Chargers but was a bright spot of those poor teams.

Ultimately, Glenn was not an all-time great player, but he was a solid player to grace the Bolt’s uniform. Without a ton of competition, Glenn had an easy path to becoming the greatest in Chargers’ history to wear the No. 25.

Today is the fifth day of the Chargers Wire’s countdown to the Los Angeles Chargers’ training camp which begins on July 29. Until that day, we will count down the best Charger to wear each jersey number from No. 30 to No. 1 and will now look at No. 26.

Currently, Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward wears the No. 26 and could easily take over as the best in the franchise’s history if his 2016 campaign becomes the norm.

Until then, former Chargers running back Lionel James is the best Charger to wear the No. 26. Despite only playing five seasons, James tallied 3,340 scrimmage yards and 14 touchdowns.

[irp posts=”12071″ name=”Countdown to camp: WR Gary Garrison best Charger to wear No. 27″]

His biggest season came in 1985 when he had 1,543 scrimmage yards and nine touchdowns. He also had 2,545 all-purpose yards that set an NFL record that wasn’t broken until 2000.

Former Chargers running back Darren Sproles is often compared to James as Sproles was a similar, yet slightly better and modern version of James.

All in all, James is the best No. 26 for now. However, there was not much competition and it could only be a few seasons until Hayward takes a stranglehold of the best No. 26 in the Bolt’s franchise.

Today is the fourth day of the Chargers Wire’s countdown to the Los Angeles Chargers’ training camp which begins on July 29. Until that day, we will count down the best Charger to wear each jersey number from No. 30 to No. 1 and will now look at No. 27.

Now, the number is worn by Chargers running back Kenneth Farrow who ended last season on the injured reserved.

However, the best player to wear the No. 27 is Chargers wide receiver Gary Garrison. He played 131 games for the Bolts hauling in 404 receptions for 7,538 yards and 58 touchdowns.

Garrison was a four-time pro bowler during his career, but didn’t get all the credit he deserved as the team struggled to win. From 1966-1976, they had seven losing seasons and only had one season where they won at least nine games.

In a run heavy era, Garrison’s career 56.3 receiving yards per game is very impressive. Unfortunately, the team was never good and didn’t make the playoffs once during Garrison’s tenure.

Nonetheless, we are able to give Garrison the respect he deserves and label him as the greatest Charger to wear the No. 27.

Last night, Jeff Horn and Manny Pacquiao fought in Brisbane, Australia for Pacquiao’s WBO Welterweight Title. The fight lasted all 12 rounds, yet Pacquiao landed 182 to Horn’s 92 punches, a huge discrepancy.

In the ninth round, Horn almost couldn’t continue as the referee wanted to stop the fight, but Horn’s camp begged to continue and won their wish. Despite Pacquiao looking in control for the majority of the right, the judge’s made a controversial unanimous decision giving the unknown Horn the victory.

With the shock permeating many households in America, some Los Angeles Chargers players, including Chargers linebacker Korey Toomer and former Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman, took to Twitter to voice their frustration with the decision.

Both guys have right to be upset with the final decision in the fight. It is unfortunate to see Pacquiao dominate for the majority of the 12 rounds, but not win because the title’s fate ended up in the hands of just three judges who couldn’t separate themselves from their own biases.

Hopefully, the Chargers players watched the fight and understand that one must never let a sporting event get into the hands of another person. When you have your opponent down, finish them. If Los Angeles does that, then they will win a lot of the close games they lost last season.
