Chargers head coach Mike  McCoy told NFL.com’s Around the League that they didn’t sign Danny Woodhead and re-sign Ronnie Brown this offseason because of Ryan Mathews’ inconsistent play.

McCoy made it clear to NFL.com what his expectations are for Mathews.

“To have a great year and be the guy,” said McCoy.

There’s no doubt that Mathews is a talented player, but he’s had a hard time staying healthy during his career and that has affected his production.
