You can never knock an athlete for having faith and confidence in their team, I mean what are you as an athlete supposed to say, yea we suck.
What you can do is drug test athletes, and the NFL needs to hit San Diego safety Eric Weddle with a random right now. Weddle has confidence in his team, so much so that he told the U-T San Diego that the “Chargers are the best team in the NFL.”
Now, shoot, I feel like we’re the best team in the league,” Weddle told the U-T San Diego on Tuesday. “And a lot of that is because of coach (Mike) McCoy and the way he presents himself — the way he portrays what he wants. A lot of what you are as a team is attitude, and you can control that.
“I’m just excited. It’s a new year, a new belief. Until the season ends, I think we’re going to be the best.”
I understand Phillip Rivers and Antonio Gates have been really good at times in their primes, but Eric Weddle confident or not, needs a test now.
