Shawne Merriman and Rayshawn Jenkins joins Backstage Chargers to talk about everything leading up to Divisional playoff game vs. the Patriots.
On being the coaches trusting him:
The coaches trust me enough to put me in those situations. I never thought I would be playing nickel in the NFL. Last week I was starting at nickel. It is good to have coaches that trust you.
On playing defensive back for the Chargers:
I actually went to the University of Miami to play slot receiver and safety. I only played 20 plays in 4 years. My main position was running back but I'm a taller guy. I felt like DB was my first love but I didn't know it yet.
Shawne Merriman on Philip Rivers celebration on the first down run:
You see a guy that emotional and that passionate about what he is doing. Not to mention, that was a long run by Philip.
