Tom Telesco’s run as the general manager of the LA Chargers should come to an end if no changes are made this offseason.

Sunday marked the biggest loss in franchise history as the LA Chargers lost to the New England Patriots 45-0, and the fans have made their opinion loud and clear. On every single tweet that the Chargers put out, a majority of people are calling for Anthony Lynn and the rest of the coaching staff to get fired.

Monday, a report from NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said “no Chargers head coaching change is imminent. The organization has a tremendous amount of respect for Anthony Lynn… and would prefer to evaluate everything at the end of the year.”

That quote right there tells you all you need to know about the Chargers’ organization. It is possible to respect someone as a person, but when it comes to their job, being nice will not cut it.

If the end of the year comes, and the front office evaluates Anthony Lynn’s performance this year as serviceable, it is time to start looking at general manager Tom Telesco’s job security as well. I really like Telesco as a gm,

I even wrote a piece back in April praising his decision making in the draft, as well as free agency. But you can not come off the worst loss in Chargers’ history and say you still have a tremendous amount of respect for the head coach, and that not change is imminent.

Every other organization with coaching problems has already fired their head coach (Lions, Texans, and Falcons) besides the Jets. This is a team with a ton of talent in every aspect, so how then is it possible to lose 45-0 at home to a team that is 6-6?

The simple answer is coaching, and the front office has done nothing to show us that a change is coming, if anything they have shown us the opposite.

At the end of the day, I hope LA Chargers fans get this change we all want so badly, just so we do not have to watch garbage like that on Sunday ever again. If we do not get that change, it will officially be time to clean house.
