The decision could happen as quickly as today. The decision. Not as dramatic as LeBron James and his decision, but Chargers fans need some sort of excitement.
The plan is to have the new GM in place today, according to Kevin Acee, and then they can finally start interviewing their head coaching candidates. Then the rumors can jump into hyper mode.
Acee has said that the top 2 candidates for the GM vacancy are Indianpolis Colts’ Tom Telesco and our very own Jimmy Raye. Our BB Poll shows that you all want Telesco to get the job. That probably means that we go in the other direction.
In my opinion, this is probably a one person race. It has always been a one person race. And will end with Jimmy Raye being named the GM. They interviewed all the other candidates to see if anyone could knock their socks off, but eventually knew that the best for the team would be Raye.
If you wanted a change in the atmosphere in the front office, then you can go ahead and scream in your pillow for a few hours. Punch a couple of holes in the wall while you are at it. After you get all your anger out, hope that Raye can bring in a capable head coach.
Raye is respected around the league and interviewed for multiple GM vacancies last season. We can’t blame all of the problems with the roster on Raye. He helped in the decision making process, but the final decisions were up to AJ Smith. If Raye is given the keys to this ride, then he will get to drive this thing in whatever direction he wants (or whatever direction Dean wants). Let’s just hope that it brings us back to the playoffs.
