As Chargers fans, we became teammates from the start of free agency until the end of the season. We speak our minds about the team's latest events and future actions, and lead our team to victory. Andres' love for the Chargers, writing, and freedom of expression have led him to share his views on the latest team news.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage. From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
