The players don’t have blinders on. They don’t have ear muffs. They hear what the fans and the media say. They hear about the head coach, the general manager and the quarterback.
Here is what Robert Meachem recently said on the NC Times:
“You hear about your coach, and they talk about firing your coach. You don’t want to be somebody that got your coach fired. You don’t want to be somebody that they talk about your quarterback because they said the year before he threw this many picks and all the sudden now, five picks or nine or however many he threw, three of them were for me.
The talk is getting louder and louder. FIRE NORV! FIRE AJ!
Fans are pointing fingers in all directions. Philip Rivers is a turnover machine. Ryan Mathews needs to learn how to hold onto the football. Robert Meachem just SUCKS. Antonio Gates is old. The corners can’t cover anybody.
If the losing continues, the players will start to point fingers at each other. Losing becomes a habit. The confidence has dwindled down to nothing. Our three straight losses will do that to you. It is not just the losses, it is the way that we lost. Our hearts have been ripped out.
Together, they must stop the landslide and fight out of the funk.
