Just sitting back and listening to the new guys in town and it is easy to see how they knocked the socks off of Dean Spanos and Ron Wolf. Both Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy stepped up to the mic at their press conference and won fans over. They are charismatic, energetic and youthful, Both guys have proved that they can talk that talk.
Now it is time to prove that they can walk the walk!
What will they think when they finally sit down and study this roster? Will Mike McCoy see the talent that they have in Jared Gaither and think that they can shape him up or will they realize that he is a lazy slob and will kick him out the door?
People want to know if McCoy can fix Philip Rivers, but there is so much more that is wrong with the offense that needs fixing. Philip has struggled, but can McCoy and Telesco fix that offensive line? Can they fix Ryan Mathews? Can we finally get the right pieces for the secondary?
Before looking over the roster, the guys still need to fill out the rest of the coaching staff. They already lost Special Teams coach Rich Bisaccia to Auburn. John Pagano is in place as the defensive coordinator, but who will be the offensive coordinator under McCoy? Will they bring in other strong coaches to help build a winning atmosphere?
As the offseason progresses, we will learn more and more if these guys can back their talk up, by walking the walk. There are a lot of questions to be answered. So far they are taking the steps in the right direction. This is going to be one busy offseason!
