I’m enjoying life in San Diego. The city is cool and laid back. I like it and it’s what I expected. Everything’s been pretty cool from that standpoint. I don’t really like to go out a lot, but I’m a big movie guy so my wife and I head over to Cinepolis in Del Mar quite a lot. That’s our spot. We like to head there and relax. The last movie we saw was Lincoln. It was pretty cool so I recommend it.
On the field, the season hasn’t gone the way we wanted it to but we’ve got our head up. Unfortunately things don’t always go as expected, but it’s still our job to go out and play and perform. That’s what we do so I’m keeping that in perspective.
I signed a one-year deal here, and before this I was home during OTA’s. So I’m thinking that there is a chance these last five games could be the last five games I ever play. I hope that’s not the case, but I look around the league and guys who are my friends like Carnell Williams, they are out of the league. I don’t know what the future holds. You never know if you’re going to get another shot. So I’m going to give it my all these final five games and play to the best of my abilities. It’s been a blessing to play this game so far, so I’m going to continue that the rest of the season. And I like it here with the Chargers a lot and I’d love to be back next year. I enjoy the team and the coaches and the atmosphere and the people. I feel comfortable here. Everybody opened up and welcomed me here.
I’ve also enjoyed being a veteran on this team. It feels like just yesterday that I was young and all those older guys were showing me the do’s and don’ts and how to be a professional. Now to be here and have the guys listen to you when you give advice on and off the football field, it’s always good. I’m trying to steer the young guys in the right direction.
Now to the fans, I understand you’re disappointed. That’s to be expected with where our record sits now. We’re disappointed too as our record is lower than we all thought it would be. But we’re going to go out here and take it one game at a time and give it our best. There’s always a chance we make the playoffs. You never know what’s going to happen. You look at the AFC right now and there are a lot of teams with losing records. If we go out and take care of our business, we could be right back in the mix. So we’ve got to take care of our business.
No matter what, we appreciate your support. We’re still striving to be better and get things on the right track. I know it’s been tough, but at the same time it’s been tough on us too. So your support is appreciated even though it may not be said a lot verbally. Hopefully you continue to support us and we give you something to cheer about.
