San Diego Chargers posters are especially popular due to the team�s ability to score points in bunches. But is that any real surprise with guys like LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates on the roster? Many of the team�s stars are also under 30 years of age, so you can expect posters from these guys for years to come. Take a look at AllPosters.com for a complete list of available items.
San Diego Chargers Posters – LaDainian Tomlinson
Voted league MVP in 2006, LaDainian Tomlinson is considered the best all-around running back in the game today. He�s been to five Pro Bowls and has received the ESPY Award for Best Male Athlete. During his career, he�s rushed for 10,650 yards and 115 touchdowns.
There are 26 LaDainian Tomlinson posters available, and they range from breaking tackles and scoring touchdowns to leaping over a pile of defenders into the end zone. Patriotic fans will love the poster of Tomlinson carrying a large American flag.
Drafted by the Giants, Philip Rivers was then sent to the Chargers as part of a draft-day trade involving Eli Manning. After sitting behind Drew Brees during the 2004 and 2005 seasons, Rivers was named the starter for 2006. He responded to the challenge and has shown steady improvement in two seasons as a starter.
There are 10 Rivers� posters, and each shows him passing the ball. Personally, I prefer the ones which offer a more close-up view, as these seem to do a better job of conveying the drama and emotion of the game.
Gates did not play organized football until his senior year in high school. When he attended college, he was more interested in excelling at basketball. He was eventually signed by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent, and only Marvin Harrison and Randy Moss have caught more touchdowns since 2004.
Most of the Antonio Gates posters feature him running with the football or catching it. The best, in my opinion, is a 22 x 34 poster depicting Gates running while a large yellow storm cloud fills the background.
After being the primary receiver for the Dolphins for several years, Chambers was traded to the Chargers in 2007 in exchange for a second round pick. His strongest season to date was in 2005, when he was selected to attend his first Pro Bowl (1,118 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns).
As he�s yet to play a full season for the Bolts, there are no Chris Chambers posters available at the moment, unless you want to see him in a Dolphins uniform. As the 2008 season progresses, however, expect to see a poster or two hit the market and we’ll update the pic.
Fouts played quarterback for the Chargers from 1973 until 1987, appearing in six Pro Bowls along the way. He passed for over 40,000 yards in his career and led the league in passing yards four times. His number has since been retired by the Chargers.
Fouts prepares to throw the ball in the two posters dedicated to him. I really love those old Chargers jerseys from the 70s.
From 1997 to 2001, Jammer played cornerback for the University of Texas Longhorns. In 2002, he was taken with the 5th overall pick by the Chargers. After only starting four games his rookie season due to a holdout, Jammer would emerge as a solid defensive player in his second year.
Now that�s more like it! A number of the Quentin Jammer posters actually have him delivering hits to opposing players. I especially like the one where he�s putting a lick on Chiefs� receiver Eddie Kennison. Great stuff.
In his 2005 rookie season, linebacker Shawne Merriman did not make the starting lineup until week seven. When he finally did, he recorded six sacks in his first four games and was eventually voted to the Pro Bowl. In 2006, he led the league in sacks with 17 (while only playing 12 games). Merriman�s nickname is �Lights Out."
I really wish these defensive posters would feature more hitting. As it is, most of these just have Merriman running around the field. Kind of boring, really.
