That won’t necessarily result in more wins or a championship. But at least this team seems committed to not beating themselves every week. I know it’s not much of a winning slogan or mantra, but it’s still better than the fucking Raiders.
If the kicker, or any of the unknown pieces falters time and time again, I don’t think they’ll get a huge leash like they would in the past. People forget that about Koo. There was a real panic that he wasn’t ready and that we’d had a Gob Bluth-like mistake. From the moment it became clear that Herbert was way better than anyone expected, the team seems committed to building a team around him. They fired Lynn, even after Herbert basically won the last 4 games. Then they went and got a coach that seemingly will maximize Herbert’s gifts. Everyone, myself included, thought Daboll was a lock and that the Chargers were once again fucking themselves over.
