A sound plan. What he did was the most defensive, passive whine I have ever seen from a professional sports organisation. You can read it, entitled Take a Chill Pill, right here. Beginning by asking "What's wrong with you people?" -- with 'you people' being the criticising fans and media -- Bill stresses how it's only one loss, neglecting to mention the two other losses this season, including one to the lowly Saints. He then openly laments the emergency of Twitter, like every other dinosaur struggling to cope with a world where any plebeian can have his voice heard, and takes what must be an old, now practised swipe at sports talk radio. Gosh! These fans and their opinions! They sure are pesky! He takes the time to remind us that the Chargers have been counted out before, and then have responded by making the playoffs six times! He doesn't realise it, but he made the fans' point for them. The Chargers have been an up-and-down, almost successful team an awful lot. Despite their 'talent'. Every year we hear of their potential, their strong lineup and extremely weak division. Every year they find a way to frustrate a staving and fan base, a fan base which frankly deserves more. They wasted arguably one of the greatest runningbacks in NFL history. They refuse to pay their best players, who then leave for greener pastures (Vincent Jackson has so far managed four touchdowns in five games with Josh Freeman throwing him the ball). They constantly make boneheaded coaching decisions too. It's the dying two minuets of the game, so what will we do? Bench Ryan Mathews, play Ronnie Brown. Yes, nice one. What's most ridiculous is that this article comes from someone in the upper echelons of the Chargers organisation. It's not a disgruntled player -- which we could understand -- but somebody whose actual job is to represent the franchise to the media, fans and NFL. Instead of solely admitting this season hasn't had the best of starts and promising to do better, he chides the media and fans for being understandably upset. He calls them impatient, tells them to "get over it" and looks to past seasons as if somehow that'll help with the here and now. Great job. By openly lamenting the fan's reaction to their loss, Bill Johnson has displayed exactly the kind of mental fortitude the Chargers team had on show against Denver last week on Monday Night Football. It's telling, really. And sad.
