Los Angeles Chargers Head Coach Anthony Lynn require discipline and accountability from his players.

I love having Head Coach Anthony Lynn running this team. I love the attitude that he has brought to this team. He has brought intensity and leadership to the team and one of the things that is required from his team is DISCIPLINE.

There was one moment in the game yesterday that stood out for everyone that was watching on the TV screen!

The Chargers defense was able to hold the Bills on another 3rd down stop early in the game and get the ball right back into the hands of Philip Rivers. Instead of punting, Desmond King was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. That penalty gave the Bills a first down and allowed them to continue their drive which eventually led to points.

King was brought to the sideline and he immediately heard it from the coach! The game was early, but it looked like the Chargers were going to put the Bills away right at the start. Instead we allowed the Bills to continue on their drive.

This likely was a soft call for the refs, but King was caught and penalized. Lynn was not having it. Lynn could have went right after the refs, but instead he went to his player and let him know that you cannot allow little mistakes like that in key positions. We were playing the Bills this time, but when you start playing the top teams in the league, these things matter!

These are the little things that will make a huge difference against the better teams. Imagine if we extended a drive against Tom Brady. Imagine extending a drive against the Chiefs.

When we get to the playoffs, we should never see a penalty like this happen. We have watched our teams in the past implode because of mistakes like this. Anthony Lynn will not allow it.
