After Monday Night's debacle, Charger fans were pretty upset, and rightfully so, but one man in the Charger front office thought that fans were exaggerating just a tad.
Bill Johnston, director of public relations for the San Diego Chargers, wrote a post on Chargers.com telling fans to "Take a Chill Pill" and just calm down.
The note started off like this:
What’s with you people?
Yes, Monday night’s loss was bad. Horrible. Embarrassing.
Ok…enough already. No mas. I get it.
Now get over it. It was a loss. One loss.
Listening to some of you out there, you’d think Monday night was “win or go home” and the Chargers are now packing their bags.
He also noted that fans were calling for former head coach Bobby Ross' head back in 1992 when the team started off 0-4, but the Chargers won 11 of its next 12 games and won its first round playoff game, 17-0. Ross would later lead the Chargers to its first and so far only Super Bowl appearance.
The Chargers are still in first place, so, the season is far from over and fans really do need to calm down. It was a tough loss, but get over it, fans. 10 games remain in the season and plenty of time to recover from a very tough loss.
