We are doing something new this season... giving out awards! In an effort to reward the best fan posts I will be giving out a "Stevie" when I see a fan post that stands out above the rest.
With that said, the first Stevie is goes to... (drum roll please) GilAlcarazIV for his post titled "Todman could ease the pain of Sproles' departure."
In regards to the Chargers seeking a solution to replace Sproles, GilAlcarazIV wrote:
Todman, a running back from the University of Connecticut, has done nothing but impress during his short stint with the Chargers. After turning heads during training camp with his versatility and vision, he was just as impressive throughout his first appearance under the NFL’s bright lights.
GilAlcarazIV also recognizes that plenty of fans loved Sproles
I know that fans everywhere are still trying to recover from the hangover that resulted from Sproles’ departure. He was a fan favorite and a symbol of the Bolts’ heart and soul. Seeing him in the gold and black of the Saints this year will be nauseating. However, a player like Todman will help us move into a Sproles-less era of Chargers football.
Todman has quickly become a fan favorite and although he is not Darren Sproles, I think Gil does a great job of trying to ease the pain of Sproles departure.
