Melvin Ingram
When I got selected, people said I didn’t look happy. I was kind of shocked. It was a reality check that let me know, ‘You’re finally a player in the NFL.’ It wasn’t that I was mad or I wasn’t happy. Reality hit me. It was like a dream come true and I really didn’t know how to expre…read more

    Wifey told “he doesn’t look happy, most the players haven’t looked happy!”, I told her he was projected to go earlier, that might be why. I know I’m happy to have him as most of the rest of the readers are, I will take him at his word and welcome him with wide open arms. Our team just got a crap ton better! So excited for the season to start.

    Ingram was disappointed by when and probably where he was picked. These kids that try and earn a first round pick dream of playing close to home. This is exactly why getting players close to home sometimes helps. Lets hope he starts to like his new home, he could make a big impact on this team. A Superbowl will either make him stay put or make his achievement to early and feel he can bolt as soon as his contract is up. I pray our Chargers pull together this year to dominate and become a close knit group.
