Chargers | Have faith in Ryan Mathews
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 15:59:45 -0800

San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said the team still has confidence in RB Ryan Mathews despite giving him only one touch in the second half of their Week 9 defeat at the hands of the Washington Redskins. "I feel great about Ryan," Whisenhunt said. "There has never been any indication that we haven't felt great about Ryan. Last time I checked, he's the only back in the league this year that's had two consecutive 100-yard games. I don't understand why you wouldn't feel good about him. We have complete confidence in him. In my mind, he is a good football player." Whisenhunt hinted that the game plan called for something else, especially when the team was near the goal line with time expiring.

It's still a mystery as to why Mathews wasn't utilized in the Bolts' failed goal-line try with the game on the line. Week 10 against the Denver Broncos could be another contest in which the game plan strays from Mathews utilization. It's a weak matchup for him, as Denver's run-stopping efforts have been strong this year.
