After years of perceiving that San Diego’s roster is stacked with good players, the reality is that theChargers lack depth and have many veterans who aren’t playing up to expectations. As a result, even though they don’t want to admit it, the Chargers

    What? i’m not an insider? lol

    Nah, if the Chargers were rebuilding, there would be a lot more “vacant” positions on the roster. See this is classic old school thinking. Where just because new staff and management are brought, and the team didn’t perform well, it’s automatically a rebuilding year. context. they performed poorly simply because the players were under developed, the offense was one dimensional. The GM missed on draft picks, ran off all the good veterans, then failed to replace them and overpaid the wrong players.

    There is still a lot of talent on this team, the problem, they mostly rode the pine.

    My opinion, the Chargers defense was ranked 8th in 2012′ and we still have Rivers. those were the only two reasons they won 7 games. Oh i can’t forget about my man Rich Bisachi, he did his job and cleaned up the special teams. So i guess that would be three reasons. lol. Anyway, The Chargers are doing things right with T&M at the helm, they are building depth, through the draft. Then adding FA where needed, ( Woodhead, Freeney, Cox, etc.) There is no 3 year or 5 year plan. The plan as stated by MM, “.. were going to win now. Because that’s our job…”

    the “experts” don’t expect much from a team like the Chargers because historically teams don’t do well when there are changes like this. And the talking heads will always take the safe road. However this isn’t like any of those teams. Telesco, being the the next guy under the GM in Indianapolis, was apart of turning over a 4-12 squad, into 11-5. McCoy took two QB’s Tebow an Orton, and made them look like franchise players. Not to mention, he steered manning into the playoffs, back-to-back for MM. Landing either one of these men to change the direction of your team, given there previous success at other organizations, is a step up in the right direction. landing them “BOTH” is almost unheard of.

    No. This is not our grandpa’s “rebuilding” team. This is a team that is simply moving forward, and making the changes, to give themselves the best chance to win. now.
