Eric Weddle: “I feel like we’re the best team in the league”

San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle told the San Diego Union-Tribune that new head coach Mike McCoy comes across very confident.

“He comes off very headstrong, very confident, knows what he wants–and we’re here to win a championship,” Weddle said.

Weddle says McCoy’s confidence is rubbing off on the team.

“We’re not here just to be .500,” Weddle said. “We’re not here to maybe win the AFC West here and there. We want to win a Super Bowl. Just his belief, it rubs off on us.”

Weddle also says he feels like the Chargers are the best team in the NFL.

“Now, shoot, I feel like we’re the best team in the league,” Weddle said. “And a lot of that is because of coach McCoy and the way he presents himself – the way he portrays what he wants. A lot of what you are as a team is attitude, and you can control that.

“I’m just excited,” Weddle said. “It’s a new year, a new belief. Until the season ends, I think we’re going to be the best.”
