With the news that Gary Kubiak is getting fired out in Houston, I can’t help but think about what is going to happen with defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Phillips is one of the best defensive coordinators in the league and we watched him turn our defense into a dominating, aggressive unit. With all the deficiencies that the Chargers have had this season on the defensive side of the football, I can’t help but think about the possible options that could be coming available.
Phillips is the reason why we run a 3-4 defense. He brought over the defense and we have not moved away from it since. There have been struggles with the style of defense since he has left and I wouldn’t mind bringing back the guru in order to clean some things up. He still has a job with the Texans and whoever they bring in as a new head coach may want to keep him around, but I would love to steal him back.
Would you want Wade back?
