04:47 PM ET 01.08 | After a disappointing 2012 campaign, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews plans to prove his worth next season. Mathews started the season with a broken clavicle and ended his season by breaking his other clavicle, ending with just 707 yards in 12 games. In his first comments since surgery on the second fracture, Mathews said: "I've shown greatness at times, and I've shown I can be the worst player at times. You've got to be consistent, and that's what I plan to do, Just be a little more consistent player and just be the guy they knew when they drafted." The Chargers selected Mathews with the No. 12 pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, and he has yet to live up to the billing.

Playing a full season might boost his numbers.

Letting Brees and Sproles go in favor of Rivers and Mathews is a big part of the problem in Charger-land. That's the AJ Smith effect.

He said that last year, and the year before that too...
