60 Max Power O:
Maybe someday Ryan Matthews will shed the fragile label, but not in the near future. Matthews missed his second straight practice with a sore neck cause by a huge hit from Buccaneers linebacker Quincy Black.
Mathews was drafted by the San Diego Chargers with the 12th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft and named to the 2011 Pro-Bowl, but has had an injury marred career so far.
In 2012, Matthews has gained 475 yards and 1 touchdown. While Ryan still has a sore neck, the violent collision forced Black to be the worse for wear as he was carted off the field.

It said “Chargers Fan Code of Conduct Update” in the subject line so it automatically piqued my interest. I opened the email and this is what...

San Diego Chargers (4-5) at Denver Broncos (6-3)
In my Power Rankings this week I joked, “Why does it feel like the Chargers are going to lose to Denver, fall to 4-6, and then go on their annual late season run, finish 8-8 or 9-7, miss the playoffs barely, and save Norv Turner’s and AJ Smith’s jobs? Oh, that’s right, that happens every year.” Well, I’m not so sure that...
