Fortune cookies BETTER NOT LIE!!!!!
Check out what Ryan Mathews just got in his fortune cookie:
We need Ryan Mathews to stay healthy this season. I wish the fortune cookie also said that he would “have a good grip in the future.”
Ryan Mathews will be entering a big year in his career. There is no Mike Tolbert to steal any of his carries away and he will be relied upon to do a lot of the heavy lifting in the ground game.
This will be his first offseason in which he doesn’t have to deal with the lockout. We will see how he responds when he gets into camp for the Bolts. Last season, there were talks that he was coming into the season out of shape. He has to put down the video games for a bit and get working… I believe that he has been putting in that work.
This season, we need him to stay on the field and to hold onto the ball with a Kung-fu grip! That ball is not allowed to hit the floor
or Norv Turner will just pat him on the butt and say its OK. No balls on the ground!!!!
Lastly, will he be able to keep Philip standing? Will he be able to read the defense and pick up the blitz to allow Philip Rivers time to get the ball out to his receivers?
There are still a lot of questions to answer from Ryan Mathews, but if he has the solution for them all, we will be sitting pretty. Even with these points of improvement, we still have a Pro Bowl runningback taking the rock and has homerun ability.
Ryan is our man and I think that this full offseason without a lockout will be HUGE. I am expecting big things from Ryno this season and I hope he lives up to those expectations.
