“Chargers-Win NFL–Off Season”
They don’t give out Participation Trophies for winning the NFL off season of free agency, the draft, or trades,
If they did, it would be the only trophy owner Dean Spanos would have gotten in his 3-decades long sorry-ownership of the Chargers.
Be that as it may, his General Manager Tom Telesco and Coach Brandon Staley get huge accolades for the massive roster upgrades on defense, to compliment an already explosive offense.
Raiding the Rams…trading for a Pro Bowl pass rusher…drafting another stud offensive lineman.
GM-Tom Telesco’s comments:
On Khalil Mack
…His history with Coach Staley was very important…
…Right place-right time-right guy to do this type of deal…
…Wanted someone opposite Joey Bosa-teams have to pay attention too
…Mack-despite age-shows high level production
…We have a younger side on defense..the vets we add balance it out
…More pass rush you have..easier it is on coverage
…Mack gives us real pass rush on the other side
…We know what we are getting
…Mack frees up other guys to blitz
…Mack has full skill set
…We don’t have to project what he might do…we know what he has done
On Sebastain Day
..He is a space eater inside
..He ran the same schemes we have while with Rams
..He has alot of upside to his game still
..Long arms-great leverage-plays with energy
..We wanted to get bigger upfront and get different skill set
..He can do it all from DT spot
On JC Jackson
..Best available cover corner out there on market
..He has man coverage ability
..He gets turnovers with athleticism
..Free agent connections are good-give sy;ou insider information
..JC Jackson relationship with Derwin James.
..Brandon Staley’s with Khalil Mack and the 4-Rams we signed
The Chargers look loaded.
They won the NFL’s off season
Now they just have to win the regular season and win in the playoffs.
