The team's performance so far is bad as they are dropping down the log.
Chiefs have lost four of their five Premier Soccer League matches since being eliminated from the MTN8 competition.
Coach Baxter has been thrust into the limelight as a result of this, but Ouseb believes it is too early to panic, and that the players should take more responsibility for the difficult period.
“I think it's too early to panic, and the coach should be given a chance to finish what he's started,” Ouseb told KickOff. “At some point, we'll have to say enough is enough if the results keep going this way.”
“I don't believe in slamming the coach because I feel football is a team sport involving both the players and the coach.
“Each and every one of us has a part to play. The technical staff can contribute by developing whatever philosophy and tactical ideas they want, but as players, our obligation extends beyond the technical team once we get onto the field.
“When players are on the field, I believe they need to take greater responsibility. It's just that the nature of the game is such that players, even those we know are capable of winning us games, might make mistakes on the field, and the coach will still be blamed.”
He continued to throw responsibility on the players at Amakhosi, citing some sloppy defending in the 4-1 home defeat against Royal AM.
“It's way too early for me to start panicking. Yes, losing 4-1 to Royal AM is disappointing, but who can blame us if we continue down this path?” added Ouseb.
“Do we hold the coach or the players responsible? Personally, I blame the players for the awful goals we conceded.
“Even when you commit guys upfront to chase the game, you must remember defensive responsibilities, which is why I think players must accept responsibility as well.”
On Saturday, Chiefs will travel to AmaZulu for their next league play.
