        hahaha sorry but Telesco just sucks man...
        Im starting to believe TT has basically reached his ceiling as a GM.Middle of the road GM will always produce a middle of the road team.

          Scapegoat move IMHO.
          Could have well been. But we do not know the behind the scenes. Maybe they were going at because of issues during the year or they just did not see eye to eye. We will never know most likely.

            I wouldn’t have targeted Swinton, but I also am not appalled by the move. Our special teams sucked, and then we got a good veteran kicker and return man. Before that they were shit. Perhaps a special teams coordinator doesn’t do all that much. Perhaps Staley saw that all the progress we made was really because of the two vets we brought in. Staley seems to be committed to developing young players, and Long and Vizcaino showed no actual progression or development.

            Regardless, this is not a move I applaud or will be indignant about. I’ll shrug and move on.

              This...and where the dead bodies are buried! Might have disagreed with what we witnessed this season (Mistakes) and probably became a liability if he was not 90% on board with Staley next season. Special teams did not lose us the playoffs this season. It could be that Staley has someone else he wants to hire and had to release Swinton in order to get that other person. I guess we'll know two weeks from now.

                  We dont have the inside info on how well Swinton ran his part of the team. Obviously players performing were onething but I think he just didnt do enough to say keep him. Hope we have a more proven short list already. So many teams ditched HCs again so plenty of potential candidates to evaluate now.

                      Listening to a Chargers podcast this morning
                      they speculate that this move has a lot to do about Tbilly
                      saying that in training camp, Tbilly as getting a lot of targets on offense and that everyone wanted to keep him
                      everyone but Swinton, citing uselessness on ST
                      Consideing Swinton was already forced to use a lot of raw rookies, Staley decided to entrust the veteran ST coach and part ways with Tbilly
                      Just to have Tbilly show up on the raiders ST and cause Roberts to fumble.
                      Makes sense to me

                        He is what he is - the record speaks for itself
                        three coaches
                        many philiosophies
                        why he still has a job is beyond me - but my theory that he lets Johnny Boy play GM is the only one I have

                        I don't get the Spanii - but they are pretty stupid and Dean might be the most dense, obtuse owner in sports. He was gifted the team as the oldest child **** and it shows. He couldn't open an ice stand in Death Valley in the summer and make money

                          Someday, if he actually gets a team to the playoffs.
