Just to get a little of the stink off of my chest from last season, I had to share a few of the players that I lost my mind with last season. The players that had me pulling out my hair and wondering why they kept getting playing time. Here is a short list of guys that DROVE ME NUTS!!!!
Jared Gaither. This guy made me lose my mind before we even got to the start of the season. In the first few days of OTAs, he was already going down with a WHOLE BODY CRAMP and then he had back issues and menstrual cramp issues. His whole demeanor drove me crazy and the fact that we didn’t have a capable replacement made things even worse. The most frustrating player of the year.
Philip Rivers. He was already coming off of a bad year and we all were hoping that it was just a fluke. Then he couldn’t get through pre-season games without throwing interceptions. The offensive line was so bad in preseason that we had to sit him out a game and it really didn’t help his production. Interception after interception started creeping doubts in our head on if he was that elite player we once knew.
Ryan Mathews. First he rolled his car in training camp late at night and then he injured his collar-bone in the first preseason game. He comes back to start against the Atlanta Falcons and he has a really nice looking drive, then the fumblitis struck all over again. Then he injures the other collar-bone. Frustrating? A ton a bit.
I am sure there are a ton more players that I was pissed with, but those are the first few that came to mind.
