I love that San Diego Chargers GM Tom Telesco wants to make the decision on his own and he won’t let the fans and anyone else influence his decision. That is the way I want my GM to work.
“I want to talk to him,” Telesco said. “I can’t make any decisions based on what people have told me. It’s a new regime. I’ve got to get to know everybody. I’ll take opinions from everybody. In the end, it’s our decisions. Will he be back for training camp? I don’t know. I’ve barely talked to him. We have a lot of work to do.”
That is what my GM is supposed to do! Half the time, I am shooting off my mouth because I am so emotional about my team. We all do the same thing!
Sure, there are times when we are right about who we should have taken, but you never remember the crappy player you wanted the team to get. I thought Ronnie Brown and Eddie Royal would have been awesome pickups for the team before we actually picked them up and they weren’t that awesome.
If Jared Gaither impresses Tom Telesco, than more power to him. I want Jared Gaither to succeed as a Charger. It frustrates the crap out of me to see him slacking off on the sideline. It’s because he has much freaking talent that is going to waste!
Have you ever seen the man? He is a mammoth! If Tom Telesco thinks that his staff can turn him around, then let’s make it work.
