Sorry to necropost but I felt this needed to be asked..
What exactly do you need from Nichols here? a pound of flesh? maybe he could whip himself and share the blood from his wounds?? He said he didnt provide championship QB play.. that's him saying I didnt play well..
What QB have you ever seen come out and say "yup.. I was pathetic. Worst player out there. I sucked..".? I've never seen one because it's not a QBs sole responsibility to shoulder a loss. they are also far too confident in their own skillsets to do that. he admits when he plays poor. I don't expect him to dive on hand grenade to appease the fanbase and I dont quite understand why you all do?? I half expect it is so that you can go..
"See!! Even he admits he sucks, time to pack it in..."
Nichols, like every QB... with the exception of Kevin Glenn.. hates to lose. They dont ouff themselves up in a loss when they have great stats.. why would they imply their completely to blame when they lose??
Id rather a confident QB then one who is second guessing themselves any day of the week...
And lastly.. nobody here has any iota of how Nichols grades out in his games in the eyes of the coach or OC.. Nor do we know if the blocking was right, if his reads were right, if his receivers were in their places or if Harris was in his right spot....
So if he says "I felt I played ok or good.." I dont think anyone of us can really say he did or didnt without knowing all the variables.. otherwise you're just kinda talking out of your ass and expecting people to agree with you or believe you know what you're talking about..
