The Chargers have lost eight games this season, by a combined 39 points.
Even if you’re not good at math (#selfawareness), it’s easy to tell that’s not a lot.
And you don’t have to know much about human psychology to know that’s going to wear on you at a certain point.
The Chargers were actually good in such situations last year (5-1), but they’re just 2-8 in close games this year, with a six-point win over the Colts in overtime in the opener, and a one-point win over the Bears in Week Eight that came via a missed field goal by Eddy Pineiro.
“But it’s just been frustrating this year, . . .” Lynn said. “If you’d have told me we were going to be in eight one-score games and lose all eight of them, I would have told you you were crazy.”
If he forgets the Colts and Bears games, he can be forgiven, since the stack on the other side is so large.
