The Chargers are moving to Los Angeles, which sounds pretty nice. Are the players excited about leaving San Diego for Los Angeles? Well…maybe?
Chargers offensive guard Matt Slauson thinks there is a segment of the team that is far from thrilled about leaving San Diego, and he described the situation like being caught in the middle and not having much of a choice.
“As players, we are kind of caught between a rock and a hard place, because, of course, we aren’t looking forward to the move but we also kind of have to be,” Slauson told Hardwick & Richards on XTRA 1360 in San Diego.
“We have to be looking forward to it because if we’re going up there with the wrong attitude, we won’t have a shot,” Slauson said. “I think as players we kind of have to give a little false enthusiasm there to make something happen. Because guys like Philip [Rivers], and myself, and [Antonio] Gates, and [Danny] Woodhead, we’re running out of time and we have to win now.”
So there you have it. The Chargers will put on a smile as they take the field in LA, but it may just be a show as the Chargers move into a city that already has little interest in them as the moving vans pull in.
