We have been waiting to see this guys out on the field for a minute! The debut took so long that he still doesn’t have any images on GETTY in a Chargers uniform! The Los Angeles Chargers trotted out their starting offensive line today with Forrest Lamp at right guard.

It was nice to see him get his first action on the field and it started off shaky! He completely whiffed on a guy on a run play then got beat up on a pass play. We should have expected him to have some rust out there. We should expect some sloppy plays from time to time as well eve when the season starts.

There were some mishaps at the start, but Lamp kept trotting out onto the field and as the game carried on, you could see the rust starting to shake off. He started plowing some holes in the running game. He started getting into a groove. Great to see that coach got him some good reps in this game to prep him for the regular season. He showed the ability and the expectations will be high when he steps out onto the field.

Coach Lynn said Forrest Lamp played more than he even thought, explaining how the guard wanted to stay in the game. Lynn also said Lamp got better as the game went along.

I am stoked  to have him join the line to create some room for Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. Watching this line during the preseason has been exciting. We are going to have some holes to run through this season and with Coach Lynn, we know we are going to get a steady dose of the ground and pound. Let’s control that clock, put up some points and force turnovers. It’s Chiefs week!

What did you guys see from Lamp in this last game?
