Should get rid of thier kicker. Nate has missed field goals in 2 crucial games. (1) vs Jets (2) Patsies.
It's Jim not Chris
That's a little critical, don't ya think? He was kicking a 54 yarder, not exactly a "gimmie"....
If you want to kick somebody in the arz, it should be the dummy that head-butted an opposing player that kept a drive alive that lead to a score, or the idiot that intercepted a fourthdown pass and then fumbled it. For cryin' out loud, knock down the pass, don't catch it!!! ...OR, the catch by the TE? and NOT going out of bounds to stop the clock in the final drive. Also, during the last drive, players (WR's) were lining up in the wrong place, causing Rivers to redirect them into the proper position, which cost them valuable time they did not have.
It's a shame that many San Diego fans will blame Marty for the loss, and this time, it wasn't his fault at all. This loss goes right to the players and their undisciplined, selfish actions.
But the kicker wasn't the reason they lost that game.
As for the complaint about Marty going for it early in the game, at 4th and 11.... It's funny, going into the game, everyone was worried about "Marty ball", and his history of being too conservative in the playoffs. When the guy finally shows some testicle fortitude and "goes for it", he catches flak! If that were Mike Martz making the call, would people have said the same thing?
...and finally, about discipline.
It's NOT the coaches job for a player to stay disciplined. He can instill discipline to a team and preach discipline until he's blue in the face, but isn't it really the responsibility of the player himself to remain disciplined? My gawd, people are responsible for their own actions, are they not? It's clear that too many of the SD players lack discipline in their lives. Look at their track record this year for off-the-field problems. Marty did not lose this game, his players did the job all by themselves.
