Melvin Ingram was not happy with the Chargers’ performance during Sunday’s divisional playoff game against the Patriots.
After Los Angeles’ 41-28 loss, the defensive end was asked if he was proud of his team for what they accomplished during the season. Ingram didn’t hold back.
“We haven’t accomplished s—. We didn’t win the Super Bowl, we didn’t accomplish nothing,” Ingram said, via ESPN. “We’ve got a long way to go. Offseason we got to work hard, OTAs camp and get back to it. We haven’t accomplished nothing, though.”
Even though the Chargers went 12-4 this season and made it back to the playoffs for the first time since 2013, Ingram’s harsh assessment showed that unless a team wins it all, there isn’t that much to cheer about.
Ingram led the team in sacks on the year with seven. He and the defense as a whole had a tough time containing the Patriots’ running game, which saw Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead combine for four touchdowns.
The Patriots now move on to the AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs in Kansas City on Sunday at 6:40 p.m. ET.
