Back in the day… only last season probably, Branden Oliver was rocking a hard hat while heading to the games. It was something that was awarded to him for his relentless work ethic by the team in Buffalo. Isn’t that appropriate for what he has been doing with the San Diego Chargers so far.

“Hard Hat” Oliver could be given that award with his new squad. The vets on the roster should make him a hard hat for him to wear around and also give him a lunch pail to carry around as well. The dude just comes onto the field and does work.

He did an amazing job on the field for the second straight game and will be getting a lot of hype this week around the league. He has earned it with his hard work and teams will have to prepare for him on game day now. He is becoming an impact player for the Chargers offense. The offense already has a number of weapons that they rely on. Add Oliver in the mix.
