  • It's a lot of shows.

  • Yeah.

  • Hey, keep track of something like that.

  • We got a guy.

  • Hey, man, last night's 11.

  • I'm not sure there's a mascot that gets more fun in the SportsCenter commercials, then the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

  • And we're doing that because we have four slammed joining us.

  • San Diego Chargers, San Diego Good Lord, You just blast in the past Ella Chargers offensive live and joining us, man.

  • And we had to have a little fun with that because thanks for the time, a first and foremost but be I love asking guys that went to small schools like I spent 20 years in Nashville.

  • I'm very familiar with Western Kentucky, right?

  • But when you come into the trash talking element that is Saturdays for so many NFL locker rooms like, what do you join into when you're trying to trash talk everybody for college football sake?

  • I mean, there's a lot of guys on the team from smaller schools, one of one of my teammates, Jalen guiding, and he went to North Texas, who is also in conference USA.

  • So me and him go at it good bit here and there.

  • Which is nice to have another conference.

  • U S A.

  • On the team.

  • Yes, I haven't really tallied how many players from each of the teams in the four, each of the four teams in the college football playoff you guys have on your Chargers roster.

  • But is there, like, a notable?

  • I guess Mike Williams is a Clemson guy.

  • Is there one of those four schools that right now is reigning supreme?

  • Maybe Joey Bosa playing the Ohio State fight song over the loudspeaker or something like that.

  • What seems to be the most popular pick there in the locker room?

  • No.

  • Everybody, Everybody's pretty.

  • Uh, how would you say everybody's pretty friendly about it?

  • But yeah, we got Damian Square who went to Alabama.

  • Joey obviously went to Ohio State.

  • Um, we got breaking for Hoca, who went to L S U.

  • So they're not having a too good of a year, So everybody's been giving him a little bit of a hard time.

  • Braiding is a personality man.

  • He is a He is a fun dude.

  • That's awesome.

  • Alright, So speaking of fun, you're having a little fun.

  • You've introduced a line of forest lamps.

  • Okay, so let's just start with the obvious how Maney teammates have hit as a person who appreciates free stuff.

  • How Maney teammates have hit you up for a free forest.

  • Lampa This point?

  • Quite a few.

  • It's actually funny because it was two years ago, so it's either.

  • Yeah, I think it was in 2018.

  • We went ahead of me and lamps plus did a thing for Christmas, and we gifted everybody on the team of lamp and eso.

  • Now a bunch of the teammates that we're here back in 2018.

  • They're giving me a hard time.

  • They're like, Are we still Are we getting lamps again this year?

  • And we're gonna get the forest lamp and so they've been giving me a hard time about it.

  • How did this come together?

  • Because I'd imagine this was just like an opportunity waiting to happen.

  • Right?

  • Lamp in your name, your last name for your entire life.

  • What was sort of the evolution of this deal that eventually got done that benefits?

  • Certainly both sides.

  • I never I never unnecessarily realized there would be a lamp opportunity for an NFL offensive lineman.

  • But what a great one there is for you.

  • Taking advantage of the name.

  • I know.

  • Yeah, I mean, I never, you know, offensive lineman.

  • We don't get much as it is, uh, marketing and things like that.

  • So it's, uh it's slim pickings for us, but yeah, when I was, it was right before I got drafted.

  • One of my marketing representatives, she reached out to me and she was like, Hey, I just I was driving through Arizona and I ran into this company called Lamps Plus and I guess she reached out to the CEO or director of marketing or somebody like that, and, uh, long story short.

  • A couple months later, we had a deal done right before the draft.

  • And, you know, I've been within the last four years now, and it's been a great partnership, so it's truly a blessing.

  • All right, so we're having a lot of fun.

  • Let's talk a little bit of football here, Forest, and, uh, you know, let's be real.

  • They're they're just acting me to be a professional.

  • Right now.

  • I have a Raiders tattoo on my body, so I have to apologize first and foremost for some of the things I may or may not have said a couple of weeks ago.

  • Congrats on the win or the last Thursday, Whatever the hell it was.

  • Congrats on the win.

  • I have to say that.

  • But talk to me about what's made this this season with Justin Herbert particularly so special to watch for you guys, Um, it's been special guy.

  • Be able to come in and take control the locker room, that the way that he's taking control.

  • And obviously we had a, you know, unfortunate event with Tyrod and he was our Q b want to start with, You know, it's just unfortunate because we all love Tyrod, but to see him step up, you know, I think he found out maybe 30 seconds before the kick off that he was gonna be the one starting and just to see him come in and not skip a beat, you know, it was just like he was at practice and it was just awesome to see.

  • He's a great guy and he's got a great future ahead of him.

  • Walk me through that moment because we almost forget that That's the way the season started for you as a player.

  • What was it like to find out?

  • So last second that your quarterback was changing?

  • Um, you know, it was it was a little scary with him being a rookie, and, you know, you just never know because he's never been in the game situation, especially this year with no preseason games.

  • That was really tough for a lot of the undrafted guys and the rookies who just have never gotten to play in an NFL game.

  • And I remember how much those games meant to me, you know, coming in off of an injury and whatnot.

  • So for him to not have any of those games under his belt, you know, the old line found out right when our kick returner caught the ball, they're like, Hey, tens going in Tyrod And, you know, all of us were like, All right, well, we just got to do our job and, you know, making us comfortable as possible.

  • And, you know, he was up for the challenge.

  • He's a great player.

  • As an offensive lineman, you are obviously part of the five layers of protection, but you guys also kinda have you guys sort of the locker room enforcers as well.

  • When something is little bit haywire, you got to make sure that things are kept on the straight and narrow.

  • When Justin Herbert walked out of I believe the weight room, I think John Lott, your strength coach, was the man who gave him his haircut and he went from those unbelievable locks to this, like 13 year old looking buzz cut kid.

  • What was your first reaction?

  • And if we were allowed to go to bars right now, would just in Herbert even be allowed into a Los Angeles bar?

  • He looks like he is in ninth grade.

  • He is.

  • He does.

  • He looks young.

  • Our first reaction was, you know who the hell cut your hair and was coached?

  • Lot.

  • Unfortunately, he's not a good barber.

  • But, you know, that's just who Justin is.

  • He's just a guy that doesn't care.

  • Um, he's just a guy that is here to play ball, and that's what he's mainly here to focus on.

  • And that's if you guys truly knew him personally.

  • That's that's how he is.

  • He doesn't Even if the bars roping Justin wouldn't be there, he'd be here studying and doing as much as he could have won his games forced.

  • You're not supposed to make me like the guy, dude like I got.

  • I got a generation coming where I gotta root against him.

  • Good Lord.

  • Force a man.

  • We appreciate your time.

  • Congratulations on the land.

  • They are awesome.

  • I'm just gonna say I'm jealous.

  • I wish I had a cool name like you Dio.

  • Congratulations on that.

  • And, uh, thanks so much for giving us your time.
