Frustrated. That’s the way I feel right now. It’s the feeling most of the players on this team have right now. It’s a really terrible feeling when you go out to a game and you’re playing as hard as you can and doing whatever the coaches ask of you for the entire game, and at the end you look up at the final score, and it’s 44-7. It’s obvious that we’re doing something wrong, or a lot of things wrong, because I feel like the talent on the team is undeniable. Us having games like we’ve had so far this season is inexcusable.
I do look forward to cleaning things up this week. One of the positive things about this season is there’s been a lot of trouble in our division so far, which puts us still in a great position to take over the lead of the AFC West, or at least go into a tie for the lead. It’s very encouraging, which is one of the things that keeps myself motivated and keeps this team motivated, knowing that whether we’re 7-1 at this point and the leader is 8-0, or whether we’re 3-5 and the leader is 4-4, it really doesn’t matter what the records are. The point is, we’re not that far behind.
