Reyes Blog: That Was a Tough One

Posted by Kendall Reyes on October 30, 2012 – 2:29 PM

Well that was a tough one we dropped Sunday in Cleveland.  But we’ll use this to our advantage.  We’ve got a chip on our shoulder.  We know we’re a good team and what we can do.

The conditions were pretty bad out there, but that’s no excuse. It’s part of the game.  Football is one of the only sports that are played in every type of weather.  It’s something I’ve been a part of for a long time, having grown up in New Hampshire and played at UConn.  It was nothing new to me, but it did make me appreciate the weather we have here in San Diego even more!

It’s pretty tough having to come right back and play on Thursday night.  But again, that’s part of the game.  Our trainers are doing a good job taking care of us and letting us get our bodies back so we can play this game on Thursday.  We’re spending extra time in the cold tub and doing a little bit more stretching.  It’s the little things like that that really will help us get right.

Now the focus needs to be on Kansas City. I can’t wait to come home in front of our fans.  I want to see you guys out there really bringing it.  The more into the game you guys get the better we play.  It’s a big game, and it’s always good to have a loud house in front of a division rival.  So we really need you.

Alright, that about does it.  I want to answer some fan questions next week, so leave me some in the comments below.

Till next time,

    Tell Philip to try throwing to the receivers that are not triple covered. Also tell Philip he was good until he got paid.

    Hey Kendall,

    You’re obviously a very large man. I was curious as to what you eat and how many meals you eat a day during on and offseason to help maintain your muscle mass and overall fitness. Keep up the good work with your development. You’ve got what it takes to become a star in this league. GO CHARGERS!

    When are we going to see an article apologizing to all of us fans and telling us that we were right and that the organazation should have listened to us last year when we begged for Norvs fireing? We were right you know! Sad that another long season has to go down the drain for the OBVIOUS to be realized by the owners of this team.

    We have a division game on thursday, get behind your team or buy a another teams jersey and move on! The Super Bowl Champion NY Giants were 9-7 last year if they fired Caughlin when the fans wanted they would have nothing coach Turner is not the blame this is a tough league any given sunday stop crying and start cheering

    Please tell those idiots in the front office to fire Norv Turner now, while we can still salvage the season. Please!

    We have a really good team here, I just hate to see another season lost because we have a non leader, non disciplinarian, nervous, weak, clueless and pathetic “so called coach” on our sidelines.

    It’s not too late if they fire nervous norvelle now!!!!!!!!!!!

    By the way, I just know you will be one of the greats in time Kendall.

    So not to be rude…I am a HUGE Chargers fan but talk is cheap when are we gonna see all this talent, dedication and most of all a dominant perfromance on a regular basis? I am behind you all the way, I think you have been failed by the organization. I love my Chargers

  10. By Frank Marmo on Oct 30, 2012 | Reply

    Any Chance we can get Holmgren, Gruden, Billick? May be Romeo After he gets out of KC for our DC? Love to have Wade Phillips Back – Cam? Norv as OC? AJ selling programs? Get Buddy Nix Back? Cower? Is Don Shula interested at all….anything?

    Serious Kendall, the more we get into it, the better you guys play. I was there “getting into it” for the Falcons (nice play). Denver, getting into it, (nice game). Us fans are sick of hearing excuses and seeing this crap on the field. Enjoy all the KC fans getting into it, because Charger fans are tired of it!!!!!

    Its always tough after a dismal game like that, not all Charger fans are all doom and gloom. Give us something to cheer for, the talent is there put the pieces together and BELIEVE in each other..

    Mr. Reyes,

    it’s been one thing or the other the past few years for us Charger Fans. We are told to believe. Then we get great Offense and No Defense. Then we lead the league in Offense and Defense and get killed because our Special Teams was garbage. Now our Defense plays well sometimes, our special teams does it’s job and our Offense is horrendous.

    We aren’t getting to the QB quick enough and our weakness at CB with Jammer, Cason and Gilchrest is being exposed. Our O line is more porous than Sponge Bob which I believe is causing Phillip to be completely uncomfortable. Also when he does put the ball on the $ our high paid receivers are just dropping the ball. And when we have a HUGE lead our Defense can’t hold their composure and finish the game.

    Before the Bye Week we were told by Norv that the team was gonna get fixed, they were gonna find the issues and assess them. You guys went in to Cleavland and were embarrassing. and all these excuses about weather and the conditions are BS. All of you guys are multi million dollar paid players you are expected to perform.

    Us fans, real fans, that buy season tickets and jerseys and pay the ridiculous parking fees feel like we are getting robbed. We are paying for a product and getting nothing in return. If you worked at McDonalds and couldn’t make a Big Mac right you would be fired. So therefore believe that if players, coaches, upper management aren’t capable of doing your/their job consistently then as the multi millionaires you are you should reimburse the middle class fans that support you.

    So I ask you and the rest of the guys in that locker room…WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO TO GET IT TOGETHER??????

    There is still plenty of football left to play! I’ll be there Thursday night supporting! I like how the defense has formed an identity stopping the run. special teams is pretty solid. hope the offense starts clicking. we need championships!

    Question, what is your favorite part of living in SD? definitely beats Cleveland!

  15. By Dylan M on Oct 31, 2012 | Reply

    Our defense gets better every year and I fully believe this team will get it together and be a top contender again! There is obviously not going to be an explanation for everything that goes wrong, Win or lose, us fans have to bleed lightning, show nothing but support and appreciate the effort that the players put forth week to week. GO BOLTS!

    Time to draft a good mobile quarterback. If you have a quarterback who cant move and then surround him with a terrible line. You reap what you sow. Then on top of it you draft a rb who fumbles. Recipe for disaster. This season is gone. Third in a row. Turner, Smith and Rivers need to go.

    What aspects of your game have made the biggest improvements from college to pro-ball? On a scale 1-10 scale how would you rate your rookie season thus far?

    Kendall, with all the talent there is in the front 7, why do you think you guys are not getting more pressure on the opposing teams quarterbacks?

  20. By Craig on Oct 31, 2012 | Reply

    We Charger fans ARE cheering, ARE hoping for and expecting to get winning results and not excuses, ARE loyal, etc., etc., etc. But when we watch our team play and they can’t score TD’s, can’t hold first-half leads and just are seemingly always so disappointed with this team’s underachieving, we deserve better! Thus we have to vent our frustrations! It gets harder to continue to believe in the team!

    Is there any player that you know of that the chargers are after on the trade block

    I want this to be interpreted as being positve criticism. Jumpin’ Jerusalem, when are you guys goin’ to get focused and / or angry and play a complete game as a team? Can you stand before the other Charger players and inspire or motivate them? I dont believe Norv can do that effectively! You have a forum here, where the fans write to you directly with their feelings and aspirations for our team. You gotta realize this franchise is as much OURS as it is yours especially if the fans that are communicating with you are season ticket holders.
    Once you start winning again, you have a template for success; you replicate that process while improving on it. So, my point is, mention this blog to your teammates. Be a leader and recognize that you need to be a voice of stamina and strength in the locker room. Why else would you be doing this blog? Know that we as fans support and encourage you but we have seen the same inferior results for the past 3 ballgames. Therefore, Play hard, smart, inspired football… and FINISH STRONG !

    I Decided on Sunday to boycott the Chargers after 39 years! I will not root for the bolts until Turner AND Smith are both gone! When I listen to the head coach, QB, and now YOU complain about the weather in Cleveland, and blame your inability to score a touchdown on the rain? You will never make it with the big boys in the playoffs if you have to go to New England, Pittsburgh, New York or anywhere else the tough teams are playing! You should be ashamed of yourselves for using that as an excuse!!!! embarrassing!!!!

    Tough is paying the mortgage or keeping your family safe from the likes of Sandy on the east coast. That was a pthetic effort last Sunday, no pride, no confidence, no leadership. Good teams beat bad teams at the others place, not lose because you cannot find the end zone with a map, flashlight and guide.Good coaches have their teams ready to go no matter what, weather happens, get over it and dominate the other team, but this is Norv turner, 24 points at the half is too big a lead, let the other team back in the game and make it exciting and then don’t play dead, just go limp and let the other team walk all over you. Excuses are the only consistent items of production from the Chargers and it starts with Dean Spanos, quit hiding and get a competent GM and Head Coach, it may take a couple years to reload, but the past 4 have been incredbly painful with no positive result. Bite the bullet and get someone who has an idea on how to coach, Mike Kelly from Oregon perhaps? Spanos will again act slower than slow and miss out on a top notch coach and keep the Bolts in a holding pattern, he keeps making money from them win or lose. Maybe if all fans boycotted two home games completely he might get the message. Time for fans to show we care about the performance or lack there of from ownership, management and players. The only thing I can say is, this has been a team effort to be this bad, from ownership down. Maybe the fans can team up and show we care about how this teams is under performing. The Pretenders were a good music group, but not a football team.

    Kendall Reyes has nothing to apologize for. He’s a rookie lineman. Cleveland Browns scored (SEVEN) Points on the Chargers.
    In 99 percent of pro games, 7 points wont beat you.

    Lets get that (prolific) offense, and play caller on call before putting any weight on Reyes’ shoulders.

    Chiefs 17
    Chargers 31
    Chargers go to 4-4 , and never look back..
