Good morning, Chargers fans!
For the fourth time already this young season, we’re here waking up the day after a Chargers loss. The team is now 2-4 and looking for any and all potential answers to their problems. Following the loss on Sunday, Brandon Staley told reporters that his team needs to “reset” before taking on the remaining 11 weeks of the season.
I’ll be honest, I’m not entirely sure how the Chargers will “reset” anything without a bye week left for them to have the additional time to do such a thing. This doesn’t really seem like a Aaron Rodgers/Packers moment where the fan base needs to be told to “R.E.L.A.X.”
The Chargers, mainly by defensive standards, are a bad team. If you look at the past three games, they’re now also pretty inconsistent offensively in the second half. This is simply inexcusable.
Maybe I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning after chasing a mouse around my house in the middle of the night, but it’s not feeling like a morning where I can smile away the frustrations surrounding this team. Answers need to be had. Expectations need to start being met.
As always, feel free to use this thread to discuss anything and everything that may be on your minds following Sunday’s 31-17 loss to the Chiefs.
