November 18, 2012; Denver, CO, USA; San Diego Chargers tackle Jeromey Clary (66) during the first quarter against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Mandatory Credit: Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY SportsThis 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.
