I grew up in San Diego, and have been a die-hard Charger fan for life - I vividly remember watching every minute of the 1-15 season, the Ryan Leaf debacle and our eventual resurrection by Lord Tomlinson. I was a fullback and linebacker at Coronado High School, and was regulated to mostly blocking for 3 years at Claremont McKenna College. With all the knowledge that's been knocked out of my head (4 concussions! Consider me Stan Humphries-Lite!), I'll do my best to bring a running back's eyes and perspective, break down a few plays, scout a few players, and generally be a cantankerous asshole.

in this case, it was an attempt to mitigate the poor / selfish play of Cam Thomas, and occupy space with the DE's
