Why Do The Chargers Hate Melvin Ingram?

What did Melvin Ingram do to the coaching staff? Why is he on timeout? Can we let the kid play? Can we just see what he can do? The kid shows promise when he plays, but he is constantly watching from the sideline.

Against the Bucs on Sunday, he was only in the game for 11 snaps and he rushed the quarterback on 6 plays. Three of those plays he was able to hurry the quarterback. Half the time!

Am I missing something? Is it his short arms? Is Jarret Johnson that much better defensively? Teams might be able to run the ball better with Johnson on the sideline, but quarterbacks are getting all day to throw the football. Against teams that don’t run the football often, Melvin should see significant time. Maybe even start him against Peyton Manning and the Broncos. He can be a difference maker. He can force some turnovers. He just needs to be on the field.

Maybe I an the only one that believes in that short armed linebacker, but I want to see him given a chance. Let the kid play!!!
