We’re now 3-6 after an embarrassing loss to the Bears. Arguably we hold the most talented roster in the NFL, certainly Zygi Wilf has made the roster one of the highest paid.
Brad Childress was handed the leagues best RB, best WR, offensive ROY, and NFL defensive sack leader to compliment existing pro bowl linemen on both side of the ball. Chilly works for an owner who has, at least by action, defended him vigorously, allowing the coach to focus on getting the most from his players which he clearly has not done.
Last week, the players got it done themselves – despite their coach – and they came together in the final minutes as a matter of team pride. That same pride was clearly seen in post game interviews and throughout the week. But there is something about that kind of energy, it’s costly — it drains you.
It was obvious by watching the sidelines this week, when in a similar position, the team did not have much of it left. The effects of last week’s outpouring left a void in the team’s emotional gas tank. They left it all on the field last week. Yes they are the players, but no we can’t place all of the blame on them.
Unless that is, your name is Brad Childress who
pointed his finger provided analysis in the post-game presser, “You gotta do your job.”
That’s a good idea… a DAMN good idea. Do your job Mr. Wilf
