Asked what their recent surge in production means for the future, Brown said, “It says a lot. We got a lot of different guys who can come in and make plays. We’re just trying to get on the same page and make sure that whenever we’re out there we can execute and do whatever it takes to win games.”
Expectations for both receivers were high at the start of the season.
After missing all of last year with a foot injury, Brown was eager to get back on the field in 2013. “It was tough cause everybody wants to be productive, everybody wants to come out and help the team,” said the former San Diego State Aztec. “I just got to be patient and keep working and whenever my name’s called, I got to be ready to go.”
Allen, on the other hand, was a projected first-rounder, but his draft status dropped after a questionable drug test at the combine. So far, he’s been every bit of the bargain the Chargers hoped for when they drafted him in the third round.
And given Alexander and Floyd’s injury history, there’s no reason to think Brown and Allen won’t be lining up wide for the Chargers for more than just this season.
