Good morning, everyone. It’s a normal Monday, which is an absolute bummer. The Chargers lost yesterday in frustrating fashion to a team that looked prepared to get steam-rolled, but that just wasn’t the case. I think yesterday’s game is setting us up to have a constructive conversation on all the things that could be holding the Bolts back from taking another step forward.
At the same time, while we try to navigate our way through the negative, it’s going to be just as critical to locate all the positives, otherwise we’ll all get an early head start down an abysmal, depressing path.
Here’s a fun fact: Justin Hebert became just the third rookie quarterback to throw for 300+ passing yards in his first two career starts IN NFL HISTORY.
Yes, that is #good.
That’s also a great place to start for this discussion post.
What are the other silver linings you all were able to take from yesterday’s loss to the Panthers?
I know it’s tough, but I believe you all can find at least one to post down below.
