ESPN just released a promo for the show “Hey Rookie” and the promo stars San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon. Check out the promo here:
I look forward to seeing the show, but even more, I look forward to seeing Gordon on the field in the preseason against other teams. I want to see how he steps up against the competition. I want to see him play in a game like situation. I want to see him picking up yards for the Chargers.
I love the temperament that the rookie is going to bring to the offense. He has a quiet confidence around him and he is very humble. He has a ton to learn and people want him to be the next Ladainian Tomlinson. The expectations will be high, but I believe that he can live up to the hype. He will get every opportunity to be a star.
We will see how he can kick start this running game for the Chargers. Will he be able to bring the stability that we need at the position? Will he be able to bring the big plays that will open up the passing game for Philip Rivers? Will he be able to protect Philip and make plays in the passing game? There are a lot of questions that we are waiting to answer. We will find out soon.
