  • 2022 Official LA Chargers Discussion | Off Season | Free Agency (March 16th)

    271447803_326877655973347_371700984604514741_n.jpeg

    Here it is TPB. Time to discuss the upcoming season. Im still not over the loss to the Raiders. Just so many head scratcher calls...penalties and heartbreak. Im still miffed on going for it within our own 20 on 4th. lol I guess i still just dont get the analytics thing in that regard. But i wont go into the sky is falling mode on Staley.

    Im assuming this was an eval year on players. See who fits and who doesnt. You would hope to see that in camp etc. But i get it. I have to think with so much roster regen this particular year(2022) that it was always sort of in the cards to play out 2021 with the current roster. Lots of these players were drafted for other schemes etc. Im using that excuse to make me feel better. Some players just flat out look like crap. And have never really matured. And i dont want to think that Staley is part of that. Or his staff. Its takes time. Lets see what moves we make this offseason and im expecting better fits.

    May even need to trade a player or 2 to teams that can be better fits for guys. Maybe Murray? Hoping we bring back Mike and Oday. Get after the D in free agency and the draft. Shore up the OL. McKitty was showing a little late. Cook probably comes back. A pounding hellion to spell Ekeler and a monster RT would also be nice.

    My thoughts are likely going to be spent on the D though. And while i know Staley and Hill are bros...im all for bringing in Fangio. But my guess is that the staley loves his staff and wont think anyone needs upgraded. But my concern is maybe he isnt investing enough time on his own D? Maybe the ST's and Offense have taken him off target a little bit? Is Hill the right answer? I dont know. I go back to my initial statement regarding the current roster.

    Telesco imo has had a huge amount of time to create a playoff team and has been once. And while he has had some great players fall in his lap....you can also make the case for multiple bad picks and building rosters lacking in solid enough depth to overcome the injuries we always have.

    9 wins. And we finished as the healthiest team in the league imo. With a roster not full of Staleys guys. Especially on D. So im going to remain as positive as i can and be patient.

    Sorry it turned out the way it did to end the season...but its time to forward think. Lets rally around one another and try and lift each other up after such a heartbreaking ending. No need to degrade and attack one another. Emotions are high right now...but like CBs left on an island that get torched...we have to move on to the next play.

    Mahalo and as always BOLT THE F UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    nice post. i can live with most 4th down calls once we cross the 50 yard line (I said MOST), but we gotta cross the 50.

    there is a ton of potential with this team and cap space to work with, but we need a better defense. we were not going on the road and winning 3 playoff games this season with this defense.

    Telesco / Staley need to build a defense in the offseason. Job #1.

      Thanks for voicing a lot of my feelings Fleet. I’m still undecided about whether this was a transition year or not. I know people like Popper were predicting a 9 win season for us since the beginning, but I think our expectations were high after the 4-1 start. As for Fangio, I think it’s always hard for a HC to break up his staff after just one season. Makes it seemed unstable. Hill will be given another year. And maybe he should be the playcaller instead of Staley.

        2022, was already slated for a big year. My triplets are Seniors about to finish high school. By that time, it’ll be close to training camp.

        How can we not be excited of the future with 10 here. What I notice the most, is how clutch on 4th down he appears to be. How many times did we see 17 not convert a 4th down? 10 just built a little different.

        Right side of the line needs to be fixed. Everything else has to be defense. If we even had a middle of the pack defense, we would be solid.

        It’s the wait after this hurtful game that’s going to be toughest to deal with.

          Yes the wait. Last year was easier because we were out of it so early and we had the anticipation of a new HC.

            OMG...just found out Mike Zimmer was fired from the Vikings..you kidding me? Wish the Bolts would hire him. He would be an upgrade for sure. Maybe DC?

              If we’re going to actually hire a DC, it might as well be Fangio since Zimmer runs a completely different scheme.

                Scheme? Don't care if it's a 4-3, 5-2, 6-4, 10-1 as long as you can win and we go to the playoffs! Most of these guys can figure out different schemes if they're competent.

                Superbowl Bound! Yeah Baby!

                  We have one of the premier QBs in a QB driven league. Not making the playoffs is unacceptable. It cannot continue. That's my 2022 input at the moment

                      Hoping he takes another big step. He still has issues against the better defenses. And while he’s been great on prime time, I also want more consistency too. That game against the Texans was also partially his fault.

                        I’m actually trying to take my mind off how this season ended but it’s hard. Probably spent too much time on here these last couple of days instead of working lol. Trying to be optimistic but the highs are really high while the lows are so low. Football is a bad drug man.
