To absolutely no one’s surprise, any lasting bit of confidence that the fans had left in the team has officially disappeared.
According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, only six percent of Chargers fans believe the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 20 percent last week and way down from the season-high 82 percent earlier this season.
The Chargers have a winnable game this week against an equally frustrating Falcons team. Fans around the world have, unfortunately, picked the Falcons to win that game, however.
Nationally, fans were asked which of the NFC teams fighting for a playoff spot are actual contenders. Fans voted that both the Rams and Seahawks have a real shot in the playoffs, while the Vikings and Cardinals aren’t a real threat. Most interestingly is the Buccaneers, where fans still don’t know what to expect.
As long as Justin Herbert is still the quarterback for this team, I don’t think fans can 100% quit on this team, but recent events have truly stretched their faith and confidence in the wrong direction.
