Ryan Mathews was Right!

A while ago, Ryan Mathews appeared on NFL network being interviewed after Norv's firing. He was asked what he thought of this and he said that sometimes change isnt a bad thing and that the team was complacent when under Norv. I attended training camp last year when Norv was still at the helm and that is exactly what those practices were. Two hours of just walk through. No sense of urgency whatsoever. If a ball was a little out of reach, receivers didnt bother. After the RB gets wrapped up, he would jog up the sideline. This years training camp is totally different. Everyone is competing like is high school practice all over again. In the WR vs DB drills, or one on one's, Malcolm Floyd and Denario Alexander were trying their best to embarrass DB's. I saw a lot of diving for balls, and never once questioned their effort. Even when head coach Mike Mccoy wasnt watching, everyone gave their hundred percent. Also the feel is different. Last year it was just watch the Chargers practice, now there is a P.A announcer, theirs music, and just fun. This year is going to be a different year, very different.
