    Check out this article from Chargers.com. Craig Davis is fully-healthy, contract signed, and ready to get to work. I love this kid’s attitude:

    Wide receiver Craig Davis never had any intention of missing a single training camp workout, and after signing on the dotted line on his first NFL contract Tuesday afternoon, the Bolts’ top draft pick accomplished his goal.

    “I needed to be here on time,” Davis said. “With a new coach, a new offense and me being a rookie trying to learn everything, I needed to be here. I’m glad we made that happen. I’m ready to go to work.”

    After sitting up much of the last two nights taking phone calls from his agent while the final details of his contract were hammered out, Davis admitted he was a bit exhausted Tuesday morning when he arrived in San Diego from his hometown of New Orleans. Fortunately, he had a little adrenaline carrying him.

    “This is the most exciting day of my life so far,” Davis said. “Getting drafted was an amazing experience, but when you sign that contract, it sinks in a little more. I can’t wait to get on the field and work hard this next month so I can contribute right away.”

    After battling a groin injury earlier this spring, Davis is physically ready. He’s split time between San Diego and New Orleans this summer, but when away from Chargers Park he has heeded the instructions of Head Athletic Trainer James Collins and believes his conditioning has paid off.

    “I’m 100 percent,” Davis said. “I worked with James a lot going over specific things I needed to do to rehab when I was at home and all. I worked hard and it’s paid off. I feel great.”

    Davis will be on the field Wednesday morning with his fellow rookies and select veteran players. The first full-squad practice is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. Rookies reported to Chargers Park Tuesday and will get a head start on many of their teammates with two practices before the majority of veterans arrive later in the week.

    “I need to get on the field a couple days early,” Davis said. “The veterans know what to expect from training camp. This is my first training camp. Being a rookie, I’m just 21 years old and some of those guys are in their 30’s. I need to get that extra work in. It’s going to be fun.”

    Chargers quarterbacks are among those reporting early, and Davis is anxious to build on the work he did with Philip Rivers this spring. The two have already begun to develop a rapport as Rivers voluntarily attended several of the Offseason Coaching Sessions designated for rookies so that he could work with his young pass catchers.

    “I think Philip and I came together this spring,” Davis said. “Even when Philip wasn’t supposed to be there, he came to throw with me. That was really special for me. For a starting quarterback to go out of his way to throw to me when he wasn’t even supposed to be there, that was really helpful to me. Just having him in my ear telling me what I should and shouldn’t do, that’s going to help me throughout the season. I just want to contribute. I’m going to be a team player and do my best.”

    Thanks TK that's actually the most I've read about the guy and he does sound like a good dude. I'm more excited about Weddle but we'll see what this dude can do. :tup:

    That's the finest groin I ever did read about.

    This kid is going to make a significant contribution from the word go. He's go the skills and the attitude to succeed.

    One of the best things about that article is how Philip Rivers is going the extra mile to help Davis out.

    “I think Philip and I came together this spring,” Davis said. “Even when Philip wasn’t supposed to be there, he came to throw with me. That was really special for me. For a starting quarterback to go out of his way to throw to me when he wasn’t even supposed to be there, that was really helpful to me. Just having him in my ear telling me what I should and shouldn’t do, that’s going to help me throughout the season. I just want to contribute. I’m going to be a team player and do my best.”



    This is the epitome of being a team LEADER. Philip isn’t waiting for his star running back to retire in order to lead, like that wussie Eli Manning. :no:

    What a little woman.

    In honor of TKs most delicious thread title, I think for the season opener I'm gonna make what is sure to be a Charger Fan Favorite:

    Buster's Grilled Groin Loin:

    A grilled pork loin, lathered in Chaka's Mmmmmm Sauce. I'll rub it 'til it gets nice and warm (room temp), then slow grill it for several hours so it's moist and juicy when my guests sink their teeth into it.:yes:

    Yup.

    shEli is also probably tired by now of big bro' Peyton showing off that new ring of his at the family get-togethers and saying "you'll never get one of these because you were stupid enough to not want to play in California". :icon_rofl:


    Getting back to Buster. He's making more people think he just may turn out to be a special, quality WR that a team only gets maybe once a decade.

    Good to see Rivers working with the guy extra. Rivers is so much more of a leader naturally than anything we've had in a long time....maybe back to Fouts or better than Fouts even, who wasn't exactly putting in extra time getting in shape.

    Fouts didn't treat young players well at all, had no patience for their learning curve.

    I'll bet his attitude contributed to our lean years after Coryell was let go.
