First, let's get this out of the way:
“I don't think I'm on the hot seat,” Marty Schottenheimer said yesterday. “But I don't approach things that way.”
As he navigates what might be the decisive stage of an NFL coaching career that has spanned four decades, Schottenheimer believes he knows what he is and what he isn't.
The Chargers' head coach is fine with all that means, and he doesn't have time for, well, whatever else.
“I've got a job to do,” Schottenheimer said. “I'm not trying to do anything other than make every decision I can to give us a chance to win. Everything I'm doing is to win, because that's all that matters. Everything else is verbal diarrhea.”
He does measure himself that way – by wins and losses – same as fans and the media and his boss.
