Guest Blog: Malcom Floyd

Posted by Ricky Henne on September 20, 2012 – 4:32 PM

The following was written and submitted by Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd.

Hey all.  Malcom Floyd here.  Thanks for giving me the chance to write this guest blog.

Over my time here with the Chargers I’ve really come to love San Diego.  I fell in love with it right away. I love the weather and my teammates have become some of my closest friends.  And I love the beaches here too.  I like them all, but Mission Beach is probably my favorite.

I started out as a practice squad guy and it’s been a long journey getting here.  It keeps me humble.  I make sure I keep working as hard as I possibly can.  And if you make plays, you’ll stick in the NFL.  So that’s my philosophy day in and day out.

Being here my whole career I’ve formed a really good bond with Philip.  I love having him be my quarterback. I respect him as a friend and as a player because he’s so smart and works so hard.  I see him come in every day.  He is the first one here and one of the last ones to leave.  I try to stay up to his level.  He really pushes me and everyone else to be the best we can.  He sets the bar really high.

When I’m not at the facility or at the stadium, I spend most of my time with my kids.  My oldest is three and my youngest is almost one.  I miss them a lot when I’m here working, but it makes me happy to have something like them to look forward to after practice. I’m really proud of them and they are really good kids. I’m looking forward to watching them grow up.

When I’m out on the street, a lot of fans ask me about my touchdown celebration lately when I dunk the ball over the uprights.  It’s pretty simple really.  I love basketball! And my favorite part of basketball is dunking.  I dunked my first ball in ninth grade and I haven’t stopped since. It’s kind of a momentum setter for me to dunk the ball whether it is at another team’s place or at home. The crowd gets really fired up.  And we need not just the players on the team, but we need our 12th man, the fans to play our best.

I want to give a quick shout-out to my mom who had a school named after her this week back home.  I’m so proud of her it’s hard to put into words.  She etched her name in history in the city of Sacramento, and she’s helped out so many people.  She has a big, huge heart.  She’s almost too nice!  But she’s a great woman, and I’m very, very lucky to have her.

Well that’s about it for me.  Thanks for all your support.  We’re going to go out there and play our hearts out every single day. I know what we owe to this city, so we’re going to go out there at practice and at games and devote all our time to deliver you a win every week.

Malcom

    Great job over the years! I’ll be right behind the bench for the Bucc’s game (probably the only chargers fan in florida lol ) I expect a few dunks, showing Vincent Jackson how its done ;)

    So glad you’re a part of this team M80. Thanks for everything you do. Keep up all the hard work and get that W against Atlanta on Sunday.

    Hi Malcom,

    I think Phillips should look for you on every down…..I look at replays and you are almost always open…even when you are covered if that makes sense…..I think you are the most open when you run a post or on side line…no DB can keep up with you….I think if you line up in the slot, you will be double dangerous because you make circus catches and quick slant catches as well…..I wish we have 2 of you on the team….oh wait, maybe we do….the other guy is Gate…..I can’t wait until our game with Tampa Bay this year at their house……you against Vincent Jackson…..I think you are the better receiver all around….because you can also block…I put my money on you in Las Vegas any day…..

    keep up the good work….

    You’ve always been one of my favorite Chargers, you just keep getting better all the time. It’s easy to see why Rivers trusts you so much! 2012 is going to be a great year for you, and hopefully the team will go all the way.

    Now THAT would be Super Special!

    Malcom,

    Congrats on your Mothers achievement! You were my first draft choice on my Fantasy Team for wide receivers. Good Luck on Sunday. Liked your blog. Go Chargers.

    M80 you have been my favorite player on this team since I began following around 2006. Your heart, along with PR and Gates, is unmatched around this league, as well as your talents.

    I wish you the greatest of seasons and the happiest of careers!

    I’ve always thought you were a #1 WR, or performed like one atleast.

    Thanks for the blog!! Good luck against Atlanta! (My son told me to play you on my fantasy team this Sunday . . .he’s three!)

    I hope Rivers throws you a couple of jump-ball TDs Sunday! I wanna see your dunks on ESPN!

    You’re a throwback to the old-time Air Coryell receivers!!!

    Hey Malcom, Thanks for letting us get to know you a little instead of just watching you making plays. We have followed you since you became a charger and always thought of you as a threat to other teams. Thanks for all your hard work and commitment to the team. Good luck.

    Malcom is the definition of a team guy/// I hope this guy gets into the Charger Hall of Fame….Malcom defines the term TEAM player and he is a very good and always underrated PLAYER.
    I love this guy not ONLY loves his team but also his SAN DIEGO.
