Eddie Royal Impressing The Norval


Every time Norval speaks about the offense this offseason, he gets giddy about the new addition of Eddie Royal. He recently said that Eddie Royal is the most impressive player that he has coached in the last few seasons (Schefter). Better than Philip? Better than Gates? Sproles? Vincent? Ryan? That is impressive! I can’t wait to see what Royal can do for us in the regular season!

Royal is going to contribute to the team in a number of ways. First, he is the best punt returner on the roster. Anytime he goes back to return a punt, he is a threat to bring it back for a score or a long return to set up the offense. Will we use him there though? He could be a huge offensive weapon and we don’t want to risk injury on special teams.

On offense, he could be used in the slot or even out wide as the starter. In his rookie season, he caught 91 passes for 980 yards and it looked like it was the beginning of an impressive career. Injuries slowed him down and then the Donks had a change in their offensive philosophy which made Royal start to fade down that Donk bench. It is not like Tim Tebow would have been able to hit him with a pass, if he got open anyway!

Now Royal is hoping to jump CHARGE his career here. Former Chargers make sweet things happen on other teams all the time. Darren Sproles killed it last year. Drew Brees is a monster. Michael Turner….. and on and on and on.

It is time that we made that pickup and reap the benefits! Eddie Royal will be that guy!

    well think guys like victor cruz and wes welker are prime examples of how effective a slot receiver can be in an offense. when you have great speed in the slot great things happen bcuz chances are he is always going to get open.

       @Bleu i think victor cruz is a perfect comparison to what we could have! 

      • Bleu

        @epadaon exactly actually cruz is a carbon copy of royal he just landed in a better spot. but now its royal time again he is with a real qb in PR17. royal is going to bail RIVERS out of alot of sticky situations….. he is fearless across the middle having 2 targets in the middle is be tter than having 1 he is going to make life easy for gates also …….

    With the addition of Royal and Meachem, I think this offense will be way more dangerous.

    All i remember about Royal is that he use to chew us up. So happy he is on the home team now. we should all expect great things if he can stay healthy and thats a big if, on this squad. all im praying for this year is health and everything else should follow i.e playoffs/Superbowl

       @619chargers4life he used to KILL us!! he destroyed us receiving and returning punts against us.

        @epadaon @619chargers4life I don’t think they schools use royal to much on special teams by speading touches throughout your depth that is how you keep your other players season to step up in terms of being prepared for injuries to players like royal. that guy spurlock is no chump neither is parrish they can potentially make impact plays in key moments…..

           @Bleu  @epadaon  @619chargers4life  @epadaon  @619chargers4life i agree with u there, i think they should only use Royal on Special Teams  when were down and need a play to stay in in the game. and God willing it dont come down to that to often

    man when you refer to coach turner as norval… i know its his name and I know your playing to a certain audience but it comes off as disrespectful to the head coach of your favorite team. good piece though.

  • BoogaP

    Super hyped about Royal. Im not sleeping on either Meachem or Brown either though. Or Floyd… or… or… Man, I really like #17 having all these weapons.
