Chargers TE Randy McMichael on the Jets secondary: “The San Diego Chargers beat ourselves, OK? It’s all about us. We took our foot off the gas pedal, and we lost because of it.”
And also: “Their secondary isn’t anything. It’s our fault. It had nothing to do with anybody on their team. It’s all about the guys in this locker room room, we lost the game. They didn’t do anything. It’s our fault. You can ask any question you want to ask, everything comes down to the San Diego Chargers beating the San Diego Chargers today. It had nothing to do with the New York Jets. It’s embarrassing, but it is what it is. We still have more games to play, and we’ll get ready to play whoever we play on Sunday.”
The stats would say otherwise. The Jets shut out the Chargers in the second half. That was the first time the Chargers had been shut out in a half since 10/4/09 in Pittsburgh and just the second time they’ve been shut out in a second half during the Norv Turner years. The first time was 11/11/07 vs. Indianapolis.
McMichael’s Chargers play the surprisingly looming Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
