When they asked the coach if Jj was upset, he said, "Of course he's upset. He doesn't like to lose."
When they asked if Schaub was upset about being benched, "Of course he's upset, he's a competitor."
When they asked Jj Watt if he was upset, he said, "I don't like to lose. Fans don't want to hear words, they want to see results."
The company line would have been, "Everything is fine in Wonderland. We've got a strong locker room, no one in this locker room is panicking."
If they asked Ben Tate how he feels about the loss, I'd have expected him to say, "I hate it... I'm upset." If they follow up with what he thinks about the fans being upset, I expect him to tell the truth, not tote any company line, "They have every reason to be upset, I'm upset too."
