    From today's U-T:

    "One of the most impressive sights on the field yesterday was receiver Malcom Floyd, not only for the fact his surgically repaired right ankle clearly was giving him no problem, but for those logs attached to his shoulders.
    “It's to put fear in DBs,” Floyd said with a laugh. “Not just the speed will kill you.”

    Floyd has put on more than 15 pounds since last season, up to 230, and the baby-faced receiver is no longer a stick with little twig arms. He is thick.

    First-round draft pick Craig Davis and his boulderish calves did not look out of place in his first two NFL practices.
    “He's got outstanding speed, ability to get in and out of breaks; he's really built to run the routes we want to run,” head coach Norv Turner said. “He's got outstanding hands. I was excited about watching him run around out there.”

    The humble Davis acknowledged a little tossing and turning Thursday night.

    “I was nervous going into it,” the wide receiver said. “I lost a little sleep thinking about coming out here and competing with some of these guys, some of the big-name guys. But as practice progressed I got real comfortable with them. What really shocked me was LT came over and gave me a little whisper in my ear and it made me smile a little bit. He told me to loosen up. So I felt comfortable.”

    If Floyd can stay healthy (a big IF), he could have a breakout season, especially in the red zone. Looking for good things from Davis as well. Can't make it to mini camp this weekend, so now it's the long wait until training camp.

    He put on 15 lbs of muscle in one offseason? Uh-oh.

    I really think that, even as potent as the O was last year, it's going to be even better this year - more balanced, different sets, more weapons.

    Can't wait for the season!

    He needs to put on about another 30 lbs before he gets into the David Boston realm...

    Floyd probably runs 4.70-4.75 now but makes up for it with a well developed bubble. There is a good chance he will fall on his *** going up for a catch in the endzone so now he has extra protection.

    I just hope that 15lbs is all muscle.
    I expect he runs about 4.5-4.6 range by the time the season starts.

    I thought he timed in the sub 4.5 range as a rookie.

    15 lbs. of muscle on his frame isn't that much, especially if some of it is in his legs. He is not necessarily going to be slower. If he put as much work into his legs as he did his arms and shoulders, he might even be faster.

    Erik Parker may not be the happiest camper on the roster this year.

    I like Parker, but he lost a LOT of ground with people after crapping his pants against the Patriots.

    In my opinion, the guy is the perfect sterotypical slot reciever with great hands, good route running, and a bit of a deathwish.

    I know I still can't seem to forgive/forget Parker's performance against the Pats. Shows you what can happen to a young, inexperienced (in the playoffs that is) team.

    NO EXCUSES THIS YEAR....TIME TO PUT UP OR SHUT THE F UP!

    Parker is normally pretty solid and was always considered clutch. Yes, playoffs are much more important to base performance on, but there were several other Chargers that lost the game over Parker. =P

    But yes, No excuses. LT aint gettin any younger.
