The San Diego Chargers on Thursday acquired quarterback Stan Humphries from the Washington Redskins for a draft choice. General Manager Bobby Beathard said Humphries will compete with the Chargers' three other quarterbacks for the starting position. "In Stan we're getting a very talented passer who is familiar with our system," Beathard said, noting the similarities between the Washington and San Diego offenses. "At this time of year we need to have four quarterbacks in camp," he said.

High prices, climbing interest rates and flat incomes are pushing home-buying out of reach for more Southern Californians, according to a new report Friday from Zillow. And that's starting to bring back behavior seen in the bubble days of the mid-2000s. Just 43% of homes on the market right now in the Los Angeles area are “affordable” by historic standards, Zillow reported, meaning the typical family could buy the house and spend 35% or less of their household income on mortgage payments.  That 35% was the L.A.-area average from 1985 through 2000 -- before the housing bubble -- according to Zillow's calculations.

As the busy spring real estate season gets into gear, sellers appear to have the upper hand across much of Southern California. That's the word from Zillow, the real estate data website that tracks housing markets nationwide. It released a report on the top 10 buyer's and seller's markets in the U.S. Wednesday morning, and Los Angeles made the list as the fourth-strongest market for sellers right now. Riverside ranked sixth. A strong seller's market, says Zillow, doesn't necessarily mean its prices are soaring - and indeed median prices have been flat here in recent months - but rather quick sales, few price cuts, and homes selling at or above asking price.

This is a city gripped by panic. That feel-good 6-0 start for the San Diego Chargers is gone, replaced now by fear of a great collapse after three losses in the last five games. The letters to the editor in the local newspaper read like fanfare for teams residing in Tampa or Cincinnati: --"Will somebody please wake up the Chargers? No intensity at all. The whole team seems to feel, 'Oh well, we lose, we're still on top.' With that attitude they are due for a rude awakening." (William D.

The quarterback-poor Chargers made their pitch for Washington's Stan Humphries on Wednesday, and now they await the Redskins' response. Several Redskins assistant coaches expect Humphries to be a Charger soon. The only holdup apparently is the approval of Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke. "I did talk to (General Manager) Charley Casserly, but that's as far as it goes," Chargers General Manager Bobby Beathard said. "Nothing has been worked out, but they do know we have an interest.

Phoenix linebacker Ken Harvey arrived late, and low, rolling hard against John Friesz's firmly planted left leg. The first exhibition for Bobby Ross' Chargers yielded a 35-14 defeat, and a season-ending knee injury to quarterback John Friesz. "You hate to say it, but it all happened for the best," said Broderick Thompson, the Chargers' starting right tackle. The Chargers break the huddle and Friesz is the team's great hope for the future. Misfortune strikes, Stan Humphries gets a chance.

Sharply higher home prices might be spooking first-time home buyers, but the swift increases earlier this year have been welcomed by those that bought before the market crashed. More than 215,000 homeowners in Los Angeles and Orange counties escaped their negative equity positions in the last year, meaning they no longer owe more on their mortgage than their house is worth. QUIZ: How much do you know about mortgages? At the end of the third quarter, 13.2% of homeowners with a mortgage remained underwater in the L.A. metro region, a decline from 25.9% in the same period last year, according to real estate firm Zillow, which released the data Thursday.
