Ryan Mathews was in attendance for the second day of OTAs after missing out on practice the first day. He is good to go and ready to start working. He is excited to get working with Frank Reich and the offense that he will be bringing to the table. He already has called Reich an “offensive mastermind”.

That is better than an “offensive genius” right?

It will be fun to see what Frank Reich pulls on offense. How much more creative will he be with his offensive personnel and will he mix in that fast pace offense that he used in Buffalo. That definitely is one of the things I will be watching during the preseason and more into the regular season.

Reich has some nice pieces to work with on offense. He has Philip Rivers running the ship and has a lot of weapons to work with. He has a lot of running backs to use on the field as well. Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown will get a lot of looks on the field, but Danny Woodhead should see plenty of time on the field as well. I wonder if Reich plans on putting a pair of those guys on the field at the same time. There could be a lot of mismatches that he could exploit with his personnel.

Reich will build on Whisenhunt’s base that had been started and will just add his own wrinkles into the mix.
