LA Chargers training camp concluded on Friday with the second day of joint practices against the San Francisco 49ers before the two teams square off in preseason Week 2.

There have been a lot of takeaways from LA Chargers training camp with fans eagerly watching the new coaching staff establish a new culture within the team. If you weren't itching for Charger football before, you definitely are now.

These joint practices are the best measuring sticks for the Chargers as the starters actually took meaningful snaps against players who they don't line up against every day. We had three huge winners on Thursday. Today, we have two winners and one loser.

First winner from the final day of LA Chargers training camp:

Keenan Allen

Stop me if you have heard this before (if you read yesterday's article than you certainly have) but Keenan Allen is out here doing Keenan Allen things and proving why he is one of the best receivers in the league.

Allen was the first huge winner that we named from day one of the joint practices and he did not slow down in this one, because why would he? He is Keenan Allen.

We all know that he is a great route runner and he showed off his other skills on day two of practice. Most notably, Allen showed off his hands and his jump-ball potential as a red-zone target with a beautiful touchdown reception in the back of the endzone.

That is not even bad coverage! It was a perfectly executed, perfectly-timed connection between Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen. Watching these two is going to be so much fun in 2021.
