Woodson: GM is partly to blame in San Diego

Most often, debates at the NFL Network start with questions like these:

  • How do you fix (insert team name)?
  • Who is to blame for the collapse of the (insert team name)?

Well, Thursday on “NFL Total Access,” the San Diego Chargers were on the clock. Insider Jay Glazer and analysts Trent Green and Rod Woodson took a look at what, and who, is to blame for the Chargers’ 2-5 start this season.

While Glazer and Green pointed to special teams issues, Woodson feels part of the accountability is higher up in the organization.

“I think it starts up top. [GM] A.J. Smith is the culprit here,” Woodson said. “I think he has to take some accountability for what they’re doing on the field. Because it trickles down to the field. … It’s been going on for years. It started with Marty Schottenheimer. He was 14-2, and they let him go. … Nobody feels comfortable in that locker room. And if they’re not comfortable, they’re not going to go on the field and  do the little things right. And they’re losing these games by doing the little things wrong.”
