08:04 AM ET 08.07 | It took one play, with the whole world running left and Melvin Ingram waiting to make a play by staying at home, for the optimists to come out in San Diego. It was just one play in practice, but it's the kind of thing the Chargers have seen a lot of in training camp from their first-round draft pick, who's stood out with his athleticism, physicality and still-raw instincts. ... The 23-year-old will make his NFL debut at the team's preseason opener Thursday against the Packers. It'll be the Chargers' first chance to turn the rookie loose, as even during camp's contact practices, the team pulls players' reins somewhat in the interest of player health. "I think he's going to be really special," coach Norv Turner said. "He's got a very physical presence."

Optimism in San Diego lasts until about game 8......then the fans turn on them like a pack of wolves....you should know San Diego fans your coach is Norv Turner- this means at best your getting to the wild card!

So what? You could give Norv Turner a Royal Flush in a five card poker game and he would fold.

Not sure I want to see that? The Queen does look Royally something though in those hats.

Question. Do you think the Queen flushes the old hopper herself after good dumping, or is their a servant nearby who does that for her? Just asking.

I feel bad for Norv. He's almost good enough to make it, but alas he's allways coming up short. So I hope he's getting rich, cause as ugly as he is, money is the only thing that is ever gonna get him laid.

Don't be absurd Fifty, the Queen hasn't taken a dump in 60 years. A full decade before you started watching football.

Turn him Loose Norv and while your at it, Turn yourself Loose!!!!!!

That would explain the look on her face. Thanks, wondered about that.

He made a play in practice, now he is MVP! Way to set the bar pretty low Norv!

I stand corrected. The Queen has taken one dump. She was so proud of it she even named it. Charles.
