Here are five keys to the game heading into Friday’s preseason game between the San Diego Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks:
“The number one emphasis is to improve from last week. That’s the most important thing right now, and we told all the players it’s another opportunity. Our roster’s where it’s at right now, but in a couple weeks we’ve got to go to 75 and then we’ve got to go to 53. So it’s an opportunity for us to improve as a football team, and for the rest of the players to show us what they can do to make our job tough as an organization.”
“They’re the defending champs. They’ve got what everybody wants. They’re in the position everyone wanted to be in. At the end of the year there’s only one team that’s happy. They’re very well coached, play extremely hard and have a great fan base up there going on the road. We’re going to have our fair share of road trips this year like everybody else. It’s going to be loud, and it’s going to be a good test for us to stick together as a team. It’s us against the world there. We’ve got to go out there and play our best game, and we’re just looking to make that next step as a football team.”
“It’s something we’ve got to work on. It’s going to be an emphasis, and it’s been since the first day in training camp of the little drills you do. But it’s got to transfer over in the game like anything else….They’ve been doing it all their lives, so it’s the basic fundamentals they’ve got to improve on.”
“I just have to keep taking it one day at a time and just keep God first. I know I am in the right place. I have to keep getting better each and every day. This is just only one game and you can’t get complacent. So it’s more to come and I’ve got a group of great veterans in the running back room that I’m going to keep learning from, and (Running Back) Coach Ollie Wilson. So it’s not the end of it.”
“You watch (the) film, and you see little cuts where last year I was making cuts and the ball wasn’t away from my body. Then coming into this preseason game where you’re making cuts and the ball is away from my body, you see stuff like that (and) you start to prepare yourself for the games that really count. All you have to do is fix it.” Read
