OAKLAND -- Random thoughts as the Chargers and Raiders kickoff.
Oakland defensive tackle Gerard Warren is suited up. He was listed as doubtful on the injury report with a pectoral injury.
San Diego center Nick Hardwick is set to make his 2008 debut. He had foot surgery in the offseason.
Raiders receivers coach James Lofton spent time with several San Diego players prior to the game. He was with the Chargers until this offseason. Lofton is rumored to be a head coaching candidate in Oakland if Lane Kiffin is fired.
It is near perfect conditions in Oakland for today's game. It is 79 degrees and sunny.
