"I know what type of coach he is," Lynn said of Payton. "I know his players are going to respect him. They come in here, and we're going to have two clean practices. Sean and I worked together in Dallas, and we've known each other forever."

The Chargers already scrimmaged against their crosstown rivals, the Los Angeles Rams twice earlier in training camp. Things got chippy during the second joint scrimmage, when three fights broke out resulting in two players being dismissed from the practice.

However, the joint practices have been a good evaluation tool for Lynn and the rest of his coaching staff, providing more opportunities to assess players in a game-like atmosphere against someone other than their own team.

From what I have read on social media, chargers are having their way with us; offensively and defensively. Brees running for his life/Bosa blowing up the line AND Rivers 14/14 moving at will.
