With some lesser blogged about/talked about Skins making plays lately, I wanted to see who guys thought was the team's unsung hero?
I would go with Sellers. I admit I have a weakness for big back who run right at people and love to stir it up at the line of scrimmage (when the Colts left town I became a Chargers fan as a kid and still have a Marian Butts and Natrone Means jerseys in a closet in our basement somewhere). This guy is getting chunks of yards now that he is getting the ball, has great hands and moves for a 270-pound cat and is a special teams stud in all facets. He should be a Pro Bowler on teams. He's also a cannonball of a lead blocker, and he knocked more than a few linebackers on their backside.
Almost all of that goes largely overlooked. I think he's our guy. But this ain't about me.
I could also see a case being made for James Thrash. Every time this dude has had to step up the last three years, with other receivers hurt, he has. Runs great routes, had a great feel for the first-down marker and has excellent hands. Great third-down option. Hell of a blocker, especially in those jumbo packages where he is the lone receiver. Will absolutely do anything he is asked and do it expertly.
Honestly, beyond that, I can't come up with much. Prioleau fit the bill last year and guys like Salave'a and Thomas in years past. So I'm open to any other suggestions. And, right off the bat, votes for Duckett, Frost, Archuleta, Carter, Lloyd or Todd Yoder (yes, he's on this team) will of course, while likely to generate chuckles, can't count towards the actual total.
