  • Telesco end of season press conference

    Telesco spoke about the O-line, and said it performed very well for the first 13 weeks, and then dropped off at the end of the season, and he needs to figure out why. He also spoke about Lamp, saying he looks good, and isn't down on him, and with a full offseason coming up, he should be able to contribute next season. Based on his comments, I don't think Telesco feels the O-line needs big changes, and probably is good with what is there now, adding in Lamp.

    He said the LB position needs to be addressed and D-line could use some help, although he feels the D-line patchwork that was done did a decent job.

    If he's not blowing smoke, I think the D will be addressed this offseason more than the O.

    Disapointing that Lamp is back and healthy and still couldnít win any playing time.

    Its too early for TT to even have a draft strategy.
    Moving to LA is not a good business decision, it’s a death sentence.

      Did he address our special team?

      How about coaching staff?

        Sounds like he's viewing LBs is a bigger issue than OL. Defense got exposed so bad against NE, we couldn't even play the LBs, had to risk it with the all-DBs light defense against that power running game.

        Our OL are more of an advance X&O coaching issue than physical talents issue. The ST suffered from bad A to Z coaching issue at the beginning of the season, players were missing simple assignments and basic plays. They did, however, improved over time as the season went on. But at the end of the season, like the OL, the advance part of X&O coaching got exposed a bit by teams, people were able to do advance gameplan to exploit and take advantage of some of our holes on punter/kicker/QB protection, our blocking scheme, our blockers' discipline. The ST also was not a talent issue or laziness/effort issue. The positives are that ST had 1 of the top return and coverage units in the league.

          Glad he is worried about LBs, he should be.

            I don't think Pouncey is built for a full season anymore. His play really tailed off at the end of the year, and the rest of the line really followed suit without him being that stout interior anchor. Tevi, I think was hit or miss most of the season.

            This draft and offseason needs to be about upgrading the offensive line and defensive front 7.

              I agree with Screeme.

              DL needs help...a good LB and an interior lineman would do wonders. Perriman is good but he pretty much only plays 10-12 games a year due to injuries and im wondering how many years he really has left at this point. An FA to compete here and and a draft pick or 2 is needed.

              We need help in the OL. The interior gets manhandled on bullrushes and teams know it. They seemed to run block ok but pass protection is a big weakness. If we had a better OL we really could chew clock time and Rivers would seriously be the MVP candidate. Unfortunately Im concerned on age with LT and C...probably can get by as they werent the weakest links. Our Gs and RT just are middle of the road on a good day right now. Id like yo bring in a Vet or possibly 2 to shore this up with the limited time we have with Rivers. I hope Lamp and Feeney step up but it seems neither really stood out as a Good player but maybe year 2 and 3 respectively will show these higher picks play into the roles.

              On a positive note we have a great base on both sides of the ball so filling holes isnt like starting over like some teams are considering. A few key adds and a little injury luck would do the trick.

                This is a valid concern. I think Okung is also 32 next year but still serviceable.

                If Lamp can come back and be effective at one of the guard spots, I think that's HUGE. I would still seek out a good RT upgrade via draft or FA. I think at this point we have to roll the dice with Pouncey and hope he can hold up.

                LB corps needs an infusion of talent and bodies too.

                  Lets pray we get one more good year out of Okung, because you don't want to turn over the whole oline. I agree Pouncey back issue doesn't allow him to play 16 games at a high level he was good the first half for sure that is why Miama elected not to resign him. Lamp needs to step up big time in the off-season and be ready to start next year we can't live with a combo of guards starting named Scholfied and Feeney. Sam Tevi was a liability at tackle he struggled mightly in pass protection, he is good in the run game maybe he can be kicked in at guard. Lamp is key in 2019 he might even need to be ready. Last question did Feeney play center in college?

                  G-Lamp

                    Complacent... thats a word I used a lot in this forum to describe this team.

                    "Chargers coach Anthony Lynn will be in attack mode in 2019: 'We won't be complacent'"

                      Lamp is the key to the road we head down with the OLINE. If he is healthy, mentally/physically, then I donít see us investing a ton into the unit this offseason. A mid round pick, unless a special talent lands in our laps early, maybe a late rounder as well, and a chance of 1 FA. We have already invested 4 draft picks and acquired 2 FA in the last two years.
                      I thought Qberry looked good in his limited game reps. Feeney, Lamp, Qberry, and Tevi are young and 2 of them have starting experience.

                      POS - STARTER - DEPTH/COMPETITION

                      OLT - Okung. Tevi/Draft Pick
                      OLG - Feeney. Qberry/Draft Pick
                      OC - Pouncey Qberry
                      ORG. - Lamp Schofield
                      ORT. - Tevi Draft Pick/Schofield

                        I think Feeney now has experience and can work his way up from there.
