I love listening to Scott and BR from San Diego sports radio station XX1090, but sometimes Scott goes on and on and seems to enjoy making people uncomfortable… even the listeners.

Scott Kaplan and former San Diego Chargers linebacker Billy Ray Smith welcomed first-year player Bryan Walters to their show and proceeded to give a pretty entertaining interview as usual. But some of the conversation was like, “huh?”

“What do (the Chargers) see in a six-foot, 190-pound white guy from Cornell?”

Really? I mean, really? How is somebody supposed to answer that question? Walters took the high road of course, but in the game that followed, he took it to the house.

Walters took a second half kickoff right up the middle with tremendous blocking from the much-maligned kick return unit, broke a tackle, and showed tremendous balance as he out ran the Seahawks" class="zem_slink" title="Seattle Seahawks to the end-zone.

That about sums it up Scott. Walters went out and showed everyone why the Chargers have kept him around training camp the past couple of seasons.


Scott and BR excitedly brought Walters back to the show and proceeded to ask more uncomfortable questions, but it was all in fun.

Where can I comment?
