What Hurts More – The Pain of Hard Work Or The Pain of Regret?


I was poking around on the web and came across these photos of the new San Diego Chargers training facility. Just having those quotes on the wall feels more motivating than anything that Norv Turner said.

Does the top photo feel like it was a message directly to Jared Gaither and the bottom photo was a message for Ryan Mathews? I mean, it could apply to a few people on the roster, but those are the two people I think of immediately when I read both quotes.

Jared is already gone. Ryan is inserting his foot in his mouth all over the place. He better get his fanny in gear this season or he will see his walking papers soon.

I love the changes that i see in the training facility. I love the idea that they changed everything around in there. It lets everyone on the roster know that there is something new going on. It lets them know that there is change.

It is pretty dang genius!

    You picked up on it too, Ernie. Yeah, those quotes were great. You could feel there is an enthusiasm from the new staff that they are trying to impart to the players. Really good.

      it’s like a “REAL” storm of lighting bolts, on the horizon. right now it’s just a faint, distant thunder. Flashes of light, that dance from the corner of your eye. teasing us, with a show of brilliance. Hold on Charger fans, there’s a thunder head forming over the NFL.
      ….Bolt Up….

    Not to mention the new sawed on the practice field and new light bulbs around Chargers park. (Sniff, Sniff) I smell Super Bowl :)

    All joking aside it is great to see all around change coming, would be nice to know if it’ll officially start with the offensive line though.

    We may not be favorites on paper but I like the direction of where this franchise is going (knock on wood) Keep it up Tommy T n McCoy!
