Ronnie Brown Blog: These Could Be My Last Games

Posted by Ricky Henne on November 30, 2012 – 3:39 PM

Ronnie BrownThe following was submitted by Chargers Running Back Ronnie Brown

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.

Ronnie

    Hey ronnie thanks for everything you have done with the chargers. i see you out there trying your best. Thank you for your comment to the fans. I know it must be hard on you as well with not winning. I hope you come back next year. keep your head up and i will be doing the same…

    Ronnie, I am both a Charger and a Dolphin fan and you have been fun to watch with both teams. I hope you end up staying on as you are a class player and a good role model for the younger players. I’m cheering the team on to win out. Please ask Coach Turner for a little “wildcat” this weekend. That would surprise the Bengals a bit! See you Sunday.
    Go Bolts!

    Thanks for what you have brought to the team Ronnie. I am a Charger have always been a Charger fan through thick and thin and that is not changing. I am also a Norv fan, I feel like there are more of us, but it is hard to stick your head up for him right now for fear of some vocal so-called fan lopping it off. We will get this fixed, and I hope you have more days here. I appreciate not only your play, but the outstanding character that you bring.

    Thanks Ron, not many men say it like it is. It’s been a difficult season and through it all I have noticed so bright spots. We feel your disappointment and respect you for not pointing a finger at anyone. Leave that to us because that is our way of venting frustrations… I too have been a fan since they were practicing at UCSD and still have pictures, so you can imagine how bad I feel. I just pray that some one sees what real talent such as you have and hopefully keep it this time. Hopefully. Either way, my pleasure watching you and Gods Speed my friend

    Hope you stay.. You were brought into San Diego to fill a “role” and have done one hell of a job. One of the best 3rd down backs we have had in years.. Prob since we lost sproles.. and I would argue that you are more consistent in pass protection ect.. Plus we always needed some leaders! Till next year!

    Ronnie, thank you for taking the time to write this letter, I was grinning ear to ear by the time I got to the end. I was really glad to see you join the team, and I am certain now your level of cool fits in just right here in San Diego.

    And this is NOT a goodbye — it’s not over til it’s over!

    GO CHARGERS!!!

    Ronnie, I appreciate your positive attitude. Being a ‘mentor” to a bunch of “kids” on the field is an invaluable asset for the chargers. The “Team.” as I view it, does not seem to have a winning attitude.They have no heart, When the going gets tough, they seem to lack the killer instinct, and pride in themselves.
    I do hope you stay, and that the Charger organization recognizes what you do as a positive influence and a leader on and off the field.

    You have been a bright spot this season. I like what you bring to the team . Wish we had a great O-line to give you some holes to run in and time for Rivers to pass. Like I have been saying for years as a Chargers fan “there’s always next year” ;)

    Mr. Brown, over the past several years, I along with other Charger Fans have witnessed upper management destroy the Charger Roster. There have been some questionable releases (Brees, Sproles, Jackson, HARRISON, and SEAU). They have even released players like Merriman over personality differences and keep non-productive players like English in his absence. Should you become the next victim of “What the Heck Are you THINKING” contract negotiations, please know that you have been an asset to this team. This team needs quality leadership (maybe not the vocal type) and you have brought that on the field when we needed it. Our line has not given you the help you need, nor has it given it to Matthews or Rivers (and in my opinion it has lacked for years), but nevertheless, if your production and quality as a person be a factor, you have nothing to worry about next year. You will be wearing Charger Blue, should you choose to return to that organization.

    Ronnie I hope you do get another crack at it no matter what transpires this year.My heart goes out to all the players that do put that hard effort and their heart into the game when we lose. You’ve made some good plays and have been huge on dump offs.A real fan sees where the problem is at and you’re not it.We as Charger fans have been heartbroken and let down forever, and every year have that hope that the nightmare will finally end.If the organization cares about the fans/city they’ll make the obvious moves that will bring this team up to par and finally give us a reason to be upbeat and positive week in and out.I hope you stay Ronnie.You’re a good piece to the puzzle…..Go out tomorrow and run and juke harder than ever!

    I hope the Chargers resign you Ronnie, you’ve been a bright spot in this disappointing season. There is still a lot of talent on this team if only it could be utilized correctly. I’ll always support the Chargers..It’s the management that has a way of pissing off the fans for years. Wish you and your family all the best and God Speede.

    Ronnie, when all is said and done, come home to Auburn. We can always use Auburn men with such heart and class helping our young kids become better players and men. If life leads you back to the Plains know that we have left the light on for you and it always will be.

    Im pretty sure I speak for all people who follow the chargers, as well as the Auburn fans that we wish you nothing but the best with your career and everything that follows afterwards. As for this season, I understand that all of the players are frustrated along with the fans but unfortunately there are some fans who dont know how to convey their message in the best of ways. I for one respect and appreciate everything you and the team have done this season and will continute to follow you and the team with enthusiasm and love. Much respect to you Mr Brown. Keep doing big things.

    Ronnie,

    Class is not something you put on a red tshirt sold in Wal Mart. Class is something you display without thinking about it and just by being yourself. You are the epitome of class and are just another in a long list of reasons why Auburn people are so blessed to be part of the same family as you. Like someone else said, when your playing days are over, I hope guys like you, Takeo, Marcus, Caddy, Jason, Carlos, Will, etc. find your way back home to Auburn as often as possible. In fact, I hope you guys are there welcoming your old Offensive Coordinator, Bobby Petrino, at his first A-Day as the Auburn head coach in April.

    Thanks for the very nice blog, Mr. Brown. And from me, a Charger fan from the glory days through this Norv Turner era, I appreciate what you say. It’s been a tough season with high expections that won’t nearly be met! We fans are so frustrated that NO changes are made on the coaching staff, that each game is getting predictable, that to keep faith in this team is very hard. The present GM has made roster moves that haven’t worked out (too many to mention), and he is still working for the Chargers. I can only speak for myself in saying I watch the Chargers am just am amazed how they continue to literally find ways to lose. The end of this season, just 4 more games, will bring needed changes and Charger Nation is waiting to see what they are!

    Ronnie, been a Chargers fan for a long time. I see your dedication in trying to contribute to your team. Unfortunately I cannot say that about the coaching staff and management. This season by far has been the most disappointing of them all. We need to stop letting good players like you go (Drew Brees, Michael Turner, Darren Sproles, Vincent Jackson to name a few) and let go of the “true underperformers” : Norv Turner and AJ Smith.

    Ronnie,

    You are not an issue. I understand game injuries happen, but even if Gaither, Green, Vasquez, and Clary stayed in the game yesterday Matthews, LT, Walter Payton, A. Foster, Green Ellis, you, or Flash Gordon could not find room to run. The problem is the Line. I’ll give Harris slack because he’s a rookie, but the others have no excuse. All the other weapons on offense are there.

    I was blessed to have been given the same name as you, Ronnie. It saddened me to read that you have not heard much verbal support for you and the team. Every Sunday/Thursday/Monday me and my family are rooting for you on every touch you get. I love this team and I really expect them to sign you long term because you have been playing so well and giving 110% with every opportunity. we are all expecting some major changes for next season and I hope you are included so you can continue to rally the younger guys and show everyone how a true professional conducts himself. Play hard. Do your best. I’ll be here in NJ cheering for you and the rest of the Bolts. Bring pride back to SD and lets see if we can somehow squeeze into the post-season. All the best

    Ronnie,

    Thank you for your efforts in San Diego. Ive always have been a fan of you since you came out of Auburn. Looking back, that was SUCH a good team. WOW. That backfield was crazy the more I think about it.

    In Miami, I watched you succeed as a do-it-all back and then in Phiily and now on my favorite team. Although I am embarrassed to be a Chargers fan this year, I really respect your work ethic and dedication to the game. Give it your all these next few weeks and God Bless.

    When I look in the dictionary under the word “warrior”, Ronnie Browns picture is there. Man, the Chargers would be plan silly not to give you an extension. You have stepped up big time this year. You are one of the few on offense that I can say played with determination and integrity the whole season, every game. I hope to see you back next year, if not, that is the Chargers loss. You still got it, someone will pick you up if we don’t.

    Yes, I’d feel like they were my last days as well – If i was getting man-handled out there, like the Chargers are.

    He’s had a great NFL career and still has at least a year or two left, I hope he goes somewhere that not only he, but the team will benefit from.
