The circus continues. At a time you’d think players would be focused on fixing the locker room, and getting their game fixed on the field, Lane Johnson went in an entirely different direction. Where did he direct his attention? He complained about… the fans.
That’s right. He had the following to say to the media today:
“If we get down by any significant amount of points or we don’t make any first downs, we’re going to get booed,” Johnson said. “That’s just kind of how it is. It’s not really home-field advantage playing here anymore. Really, that’s the truth. Cats here, they really don’t care.”

Well, that’s one way to look at it I guess. What about the fans paying their hard earned money to come to the games? Fans committing a full Sunday to come and watch you play? If you are at the games, it’s because you support the team. Of course, the fans were sold a fraud this offseason, but keep coming to the games. Nothing has changed. Chip hasn’t adapted his gameplan. The players have regressed.
Maybe, Lane, the team should take responsibility for the lackluster play that makes fans feel like they are wasting their time and money.
Maybe we just want a team that battles every week to win for the city. Maybe you should focus on the on field product and the cheers and support will return.
I hate this team right now!
UPDATE: Well, that didn’t take long for Lane to address his earlier quote.
