Chargers FS Eric Weddle Says 'Raiders Kicked Our Butts'
After getting beaten for the fourth straight time today, San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle is giving credit to the Raiders for their 24-17 victory and bemoaning his team's poor performance. "We played horrible today," Chargers free safety Eric Weddle told Scott Bair of the North County Times. "Our performance wasn't acceptable by any means. There was some bad, bad defense out there. ... We got our butts kicked. There's no way around it." "We smelled blood and just went after him," Oakland defensive lineman Richard Seymour said. The Raiders created havoc with a four-man pass rush, leaving enough defenders on the back end to slow the passing attack. Rivers was sacked six times, including on the final two plays as the Chargers were trying to drive for a game-tying touchdown. "There are no excuses, no asterisk next to this loss because we had some setbacks," center Nick Hardwick said. "They all count the same. We didn't deal with our circumstances well enough."
