    I never knew Sproles stuttered. Nice to hear he's working hard to not only overcome this, but helping others though the Stuttering Foundation of America. Another class act on the Chargers. :tup:

    It's not the stutter in his voice, it's the stutter in his step. Demosthenes put pebbles in his mouth. Primitive but effective. I don't care whether or not he speakss like Walter Cronkite. I just care if he runs like Cronkite spoke.

    Funny, because actually he DOESN'T stutter. He has a STAMMER, where he can't get words out.

    A stutter is "D-d-d-d-dog". With a stammer, the person hesitates and nothing comes out, like "I went for a walk with the ...................................dog."
