The San Diego Chargers’ old lightning bolt logo remained essentially unchanged for more than 40 years.
Chargers president of business operations A.G. Spanos told NBC Sports the team miscalculated how the logo would be received by the public.
The logo that was revealed on Thursday was meant to help launch our brand into the market and supplement not replace our official team marks, Spanos told NBC. Clearly, we miscalculated how the logo would be received, and weve taken it out of the rotation.
After losing Ameer Abdullah (foot) and Theo Riddick (wrist) to season-ending injuries, Zenner has stepped up the past two weeks for the No. 6 seeded Lions, who take on the Seahawks on Saturday. The South Dakota State product played all but two snaps against the Packers in Week 17, finishing with a career-high 69 yards rushing and adding 41 yards receiving. But, according to Bennett, it’s the little things that make Zenner special.
That surprises me a lot because you dont see a lot of (white) running backs in the NFL, theres just a couple, Bennett said. But hes right now, hes really, really good. He does a lot of great things, I think. Even in the pass protection game, he steps up and he does a great job of protection. Im not surprised that hes the starter right now because of all the great things that hes doing.
Elite Youth Devin Hester Jersey Bennett also had an interesting way to describe former teammate Golden Tate, who won a Super Bowl with Bennett and the Seahawks in 2013.
Golden Tate is just one of those players he can do so much, Bennett said. He can catch the ball, run the ball. His YAC (yards after catch) is just outstanding. And sometimes, he got the weirdest looking body but he can always make plays. I always think he looks like a bird, but I can never understand how that body does what it does.

Golden was always a great teammate, a great, fun guy, always popped around, always brought donuts. Always appreciate the D-line and it was fun to have him on our team.
