Kynan Forney: They've been working me in slowly in practice, getting me reps and stuff. Whenever they need me, I'll be ready.
ML: How are you and Scott Mruczkowski divvying up the backup minutes?
KF: I'm playing both [guard spots]. Scott goes from left to right, so he's able to do both. They've got me right one week and some left one week.

KF: Terminology and the way they do certain techniques. Also, with the season starting, they start game planning for different opponents, so different blocking stuff might be different as opposed to the way they might have put it in back in the offseason and in the summer.
ML: When you see all the talent on San Diego's offense, do you feel like you could get in there and play your way back to a Pro Bowl level?
KF: If they need me, I'll be ready. As far as back to a Pro Bowl level, I feel like I'm still there. It's just me needing an opportunity.
ML: Even though you're currently working on a one-year deal, is this a place you can see yourself playing long-term?
KF: I believe so. This team has a great offensive line, great quarterback and great running back. This situation is a whole lot better than the one I came from. I'd be more than happy to stay here.
ML: What is it about the situation in San Diego that is so much better than the situation in Atlanta?
KF: [The Chargers] take care of their players during the week. They're not trying to kill you to where you're just barely surviving and scratching on Sunday. They bring you into the game fresh. Coach [Norv] Turner treats us like men. So does Jack Henry, the line coach, and Hal [Hunter]. It's just a different way they go about things.
