    Khan may have also backed up the brinks truck to his house and promised some level of roster control which he will never get here.

    So FL which is good for his family, Khan paying whatever he asks, roster control, no state tax and a new young QB in Lawrence.

    Not a bad gig if you ask me.
    Definitely a good set for new beginnings. However, as time passes, do you still think so, or have you changed your mind a bit?

    To be fair to Saban, he didn't sign Brees for the same reason we let him walk. Assuming he didn't have the injury, we'd probably have a Joe Montana/Steve Young or Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers dilemma on our hands in 2006 and I'm not so sure Rivers would have won out that year.
    Dude, the Chargers had a backup plan named Philip Rivers. It wasn't that much of a gamble to let Brees walk.

    Saban chose Dante Culpepper over Drew Brees. That is a level of stupidity even I can't fathom.

    It's like choosing Mitch Turbisky over Patrick Mahomes. Yeah, we didn't know if either of them would be any good, but I think it was a pretty sure bet Turbisky wasn't going to work out.

    Why wait for the unknown? I guess Saleh could have had his second interview with us to find out where we are in thinking. Maybe point blank ask if he is a strong candidate because he can sign with the Jets right now if he isnt.

    Saleh’s decision looks eager, wanted to accept the first offer thrown his way.
    meyer to Jac makes a lot of sense. With the crazy cap they have, they’re going to have the pick of FAs, which is the closest thing to recruiting in the NFL, Meyer’s specialty
    I admit that wouldn’t have said this a week ago, but I think Daboll is a better fit here than even Meyer
    mainly because with Meyer it was going to be an absolute media circus everyday
    and I think we’re on the verge of building a real solid offensive system that doesn’t need that early attention
    I know Daboll isn’t a sure thing, but if we get rejected from Daboll, I will admit were repelling candidates.

    Maybe, just maybe, it wasn't Meyer or Saleh who decided not to take the Chargers job. Maybe the Chargers decided not to offer it.

    Just because Saleh was slated for a second interview doesn't mean he was the choice. In any business, including football, a hire this important is done by screening a lot of candidates, then culling it to the top 3-4 and working more with those guys to make your decision. Unless you are SO blown away by someone in the screening round that you move real fast. I think Jax only focused on Meyer the entire time. I think Saleh must have really clicked for the Jets. I think the Chargers liked Saleh but not enough to pull the trigger without talking to him AND a few of the other candidates again. I know this is moving slower than we want, but this truly is how things are done and I don't look at it like the Bolts are failing.

    RE: Assistant coaches. Every HC candidate comes in to the interview with his list. Some are just pipe dreams (I read recently about a GM who chuckled that every candidate came in saying he would bring pretty much the same staff). Others, like McVay actually have talked to assistants and truly have them lined up. If whoever the Chargers next HC is going to be is any good, he already has his staff and really actually has got commitments from them. This is what scares me about Garrett, who I unfortunately think will be the choice. No assistant is going to commit to him because he is not a highly sought HC and it is too risky to pass up a certain job for a potential one with him.

    Firing a 14-2 coach puts us at the bottom. The Jags have never had the players to be competitive. Their GM's haven't been too bad, but haven't got the QB position right. Bottles really set them back. Lots of teams have had that problem.

    Saleh decided on the Jets. Meyer chose the Jags. We have the best roster of teams needing coaches and we have cap space. Young QB. Young defensive stars. What makes those places more attractive? What else would a coach look at aside from contract, roster, and control? Saleh didn't pick NY for the weather.
    Again, I'm not saying we have good ownership but I'm not sure how anyone could look at the results he has and not think he isn't the worst owner in the league. If they haven't had a good QB or the players to be competitive, you have to look at the guy who hired a bad front office. I'm kind of bummed we didn't get Meyer myself, but we may have wanted someone like Daboll all along.

    2012: 2-14
    2013: 4-12
    2014: 3-13
    2015: 5-11
    2016: 3-13
    2017: 10-6
    2018: 5-11
    2019: 6-10
    2020: 1-15

    The team's record is 39-105 since he bought the team. The have lost double digit games in 8 of the 9 years he has owned the team. The Chargers during that time were 67-77. So yeah, our ownership sucks but I have no idea how you come to the conclusion that he hasn't been a much worse owner than Spanos.

    Take a guy like Trevor Lawrence who hasn't loss many games and a guy in Meyers whom doesn't have losing seasons. They're gonna lose a lot of games in 2021. Gonna be real interesting real fast on how they weather that storm.

    Urban just may have an aneurysm his first season there. Lawrence is a catch at QB but they need a lot. Meyer may just spend all that cap space this year lol
    Now is the year to have the cap space when tons of solid players will be cut.
