Great write up and you're not over-reacting
Maybe over-emotional given the point about emulating the Chargers completely from a fundamental standpoint but I agree with a lot of what you said.
I was 8 when when the cats were formed and its the only team I'm a complete fan of and from day 1. Anyone who endured those Beuerlein years, as solid as he was, should know that simply having a vertical game and a "system" in place won't get it done. Its about the trenches, the fundamentals, and self discipline. Being a crazy sumbitch but in control. That's the mentality I want.
This season comes across as the personnel acting as the chess players with the players as their pieces putting the label on them. That's not an NFL team in my book. A team takes the coaches being at the same level with the players and above them at the same time. They gut check, call guys out, and create an atmosphere where players can feed off each other. This team needs a gut check on what it means to be a team. I thought with guys like Shockey, Gross, & Beason we would get that, but it's not looking right. I don't know why it feels so off this year even with Cam playing well but it does for me and I'm used to losing....like I said this is my only team and my family is all Chicago Cubs
I don't want experience this again:
And right on with mocking the tl;dr responses
