Compliments to Chargers RG Jeromey Clary

This doesn’t happen often, but I will throw some compliments in the direction of Chargers RG Jeromey Clary. When compliments are due, I better send them in that direction. Especially to a player that gets all kinds of crap from us when Philip Rivers is running for his life in the backfield.

The biggest complement that I can give to Jeromey Clary…. That man is going to go out on the football field and work hard and injuries will not slow him down. Clary missed last week with a clavicle injury. An offensive linemen with a bruised clavicle is pretty useless. He busted that clavicle in the middle of the Tennessee game and kept on pushing through the injury. He sat out last week, but was back on the practice field this week! If the man can move his arm, he is going to go out there.

How effective will he be? That is yet to be seen, but he will make sure that he is giving all the effort that he can to step out onto the football field. There will be no “Jared Gaither-ness” with Jeromey Clary. When he gets beat, he goes back out and tried to do it better the next time around. You can never knock the man for not giving his full effort…. just sometimes his effort isn’t up to par with the other players.

    Agreed, Clary has taken a lot of flak from people, like myself! He has proven to be a team asset with the switch to guard. HAppy Friday Folks… #BoltUP

    OK, this is gonna be hard for me, but…… (Teeth gritted, and smiling like Stewie)… “Good job, Jeromey… I like the effort”.

    Backups played well, but with Orhnberger out too, it was starting to get scary. Glad to have him back ; )

    I am off the “Can Clary” bandwagon. He now has street cred. Clary has been a professional throughout this transition. When you find the team has drafted your replacement, the usual response is for the player to ask for a trade. Yet he asked for a chance to play, done well, NOT Spectacular, just well and then sucked it up when his team needed him.

      He still needs a pay cut, but he is doing so much better at RG.

    Good write up Ernie. Clary has taken a beating from a lot of directions but he has remained focused. Play hard, play hurt, do his best, don’t quit. And his best is good enough to be in the NFL. I am glad he has survived long enough to be apart of a much improved team. He deserves it. Keep Rivers jersey clean Clary!!

  • MachoMenos

    Well, I have to apologize. I’ve hated Clary for years. Moving him to RG has given him a new lease in life. Well done, sir!

  • Gunnar Martin

    The dude’s one tough son of a gun. Respect.

  • Jordan

    Stinger at the end tho

    I’ve been as hard as anyone on Clary, his mistakes and false starts have driven me absolutely Bananas … never questioned his toughness … was so used to sayin “Ahh DAMMIT Clary” but I too am off that wagon, consummate professional, even with us as fans. In other news Rivers isn’t broken, isn’t DONE … many Chargers fans have said so … He’s back and his FIRE is back.
