Three And Out: April 08, 2010

CHARGERS OFFSEASON CONDITIONING PROGRAM OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY

Although the term "voluntary" might be a bit subjective, it's nevertheless encouraging to see that 55 veteran players arrived at Chargers Park this week to get started on their offseason strength and conditioning program.

“We’ve had a number of guys in here working out on their own for the last month or so to get ready for today,” says Head Coach Norv Turner. “What that says to me is that our guys are hungry and can’t wait to get going.”

Also working out is restricted free agents Darren Sproles, who has signed his one year tender, and Shawne Merriman who has not signed his tender but has instead signed an injury waiver. By signing the injury waiver, Merriman is afforded some insurance should anything happen to him medically while working out.

“I see no point in not working out with the team,” Merriman said. “I wanted to do this. I’m a big-picture guy. I’m going to be me.”

Okay, last year ESPN had a special on how Cro works or worked out, and now this year it's another one of our Corners. I really hope that Cason is a special player and will help this team tremendously. you can't really judge him from playing in the nickel, but when he was on the outside he looked solid, lets hope this training pays off and won't let us down!

After last year's "photo-op" debacle with shirtless-and-shiny Cromartie chasing truck tires (and presumably; parked trucks), I would have thought both the Chargers PR Dept. and Cason's agent would have prudent enough to "cease and desist" on their own to avoid any comparisons, but apparently not. Antoine, put your shirt back on, don't tip your hand and tell the competition that you’re trying to get faster, and simply SHOW US WHAT YOU CAN DO on the FOOTBALL field.
"Show" rhymes with “Cro”, which rhymes with “go”, and that might preface “away” if your performance this year doesn’t match up with your #1 draft choice salary. So, enough with your blather and quirky philosophitudes, just show us you can fill the bill, and please actually “tackle”. All the speed in the world don’t mean a thing if you pull up like Prom Queen in a bull ring at the point of contact. Please play real, actual, old-fashioned, imposing defensive football. Thank you, and good luck.
Go Bolts!!
