Chargers Rookie RB Gartrell Johnson Premieres His Blog

t’s finally starting to sink in that I’m an NFL player now that I’ve gotten to be around all the guys.

By far the biggest shock so far has been how fast everything goes. You hear about it leading up to the draft that the NFL is so much faster, but you can’t really understand it until you see it every day. The speed of the guys is insane. If you make one false move during a play you are going to get beat.

The one guy whose speed is just ridiculous is Darren Sproles. I have never seen a guy with his speed and energy. He goes 100 mph all the time. Being able to match his energy level on every play is what I strive for. He’s extremely passionate about the game too.

Right now I’m just trying to learn where to be and what to do on every single play. We have a pretty healthy playbook but not everything has been installed yet. When I saw our playbook I was excited to get out there and just get after it. I love football, I live it 24/7 so I was ready to go on day one.
