According to head coach Mike McCoy, this is one of his least favorite parts about the game of football
Compared to Norv, how will McCoy handle Mathews? - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
I asked McCoy if he still trusted Mathews near the end zone, post-fumble. "We were going to give it to him again the next play," he said.
Ryan Mathews upset over lost fumble - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
"The look on Ryan's face was of disgust," quarterback Philip Rivers said. "It was as if it was a terrible first half, which is good because it meant that much to him."
McCoy: "We're in this Business to Win" - Ricky Henne
"You can’t take a win like this for granted whether or not it comes in preseason or the regular season," said the future Hall-of-Famer. "It was just showing our growth and how we continue to get better over the weeks and throughout training camp. We just want to hit the season on top of our game."
Five Lessons from the Cardinals Game - Ricky Henne
"No matter what you say about the preseason, that it doesn’t impact the record or that there’s nothing on the line, that’s wrong. We’re out there competing and as a professional player you want to go out there, execute and win. So to go out there, get a complete win and play well in all three phases – that’s what it’s going to take for us to win a championship."
