Yes interesting work dynamic for TT. Managing that fine balance between John's new role, his family ties to the organization and his responsibilities as GM. TT's 2016 draft class was his best yet. I do hope Tuerk doesn't disappoint. Past draftee Chris Watt is now officially a bust and let's hope Jerry Attaochu can comeback next year.

Nice summation Bob...surprises was the play of Hayward. He not only stepped up in place of Verrett but held is own.
Disappointed in Travis Benjamin's play in particular on special teams. Dude was dangerous last year with the Browns and appeared to be tenative with us.
I liked Mebane and Slauson presence as leaders in the locker room and their stellar play on the field.

The press conference was an awkward one saying McCoy's an "excellent coach" and the action's speaking volumes that he just wasn't getting it done. The press doing the full court press on where the Chargers next home will be. Will the coaching candidates know where they are going to work during the the interviews before "we" the public finds out? Will it be leaked? Stay tuned.

I think this fractured dynamic is why we see an inconsistent draft.......

Hoping that whoever had the biggest voice in this year's draft continues to have a loud voice going forward. IMHO best Chargers draft since 2004. Add in the FA pickups & it was the best offseason in a long, long time.

I agree completely, and I suspect it was TT making the calls......but who knows.

In terms of calling out ownership apparently ESPN has gotten the clue as well (ref: What every coachless NFL team offers and needs)

Weakness: ownership. The Chargers may have as talented a roster as any of the available vacancies when everybody's healthy, but it's difficult to imagine them attracting a top-level head coach given the uncertainty surrounding the organization. It's still unclear whether the Chargers will be in San Diego come 2017, and this is the same ownership group that unnecessarily ran Eric Weddle out of town and held an irrationally firm line on Bosa's contract earlier this year, as they have with rookie deals for years now. Bosa held out in camp, hurt his hamstring as he tried to get ready to play, and then missed the first month of the season as the Chargers lost three games by a combined 11 points. You think Mike McCoy is happy San Diego held a firm line in negotiating now?
