San Diego Chargers GM Tom Telesco believes that playcalling is overrated. See for yourself here:

Telesco just said play-calling is over-rated, it's all about game planning.

Telesco just said breathing is overrated. It's all about eyesight. https://t.co/Ko3Mm1rQ23

Telesco had his end of the season press conference and told the world that he believes that playcalling is overrated. I guess that makes sense on why we gave Mike McCoy a contract extension. We might as well have given Frank Reich another season with that approach.

Why would our GM believe that playcalling is overrated? That is just dumb to say to people. Can Telesco just step down from the podium now and stop talking to people?

Why would he think anything like that? At least he is not the one calling the plays and he is the one evaluating the talent. Too bad he is the one that is choosing the head coach to run this team and he gave that man an extension after a 4-12 season. I guess winning is overrated as well. It all makes sense now.

How else do you give an extension to someone that can’t win games?

I just don’t understand what is happening with this team at the moment and want all the stupid stuff to end and am waiting for this team to make some good decisions. I might be waiting for a long time.
