John Spanos was named President—Football Operations for the Chargers in May 2015. He oversees all of the team’s football operations, including player personnel, coaching, player finance and the salary cap, medical, equipment, video, player engagement and security. He also represents the team at all league and management council meetings.

Drawing from his scouting experience, Spanos has seen his role in the NFL Draft grow exponentially since his ascension in 2013 and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. The team’s 2013 draft yielded three key starters: tackle D.J. Fluker, linebacker Manti Te’o, and wide receiver and Pepsi Next NFL Rookie of the Year Keenan Allen. The 2014 draft class saw four of the six players the Chargers selected make the team’s opening day roster, and the 2015 class is full of promising talent, headlined by running back Melvin Gordon, winner of the 2014 Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top running back, and runner up for the 2014 Heisman Trophy.

It seems we have gotten worse as a franchise with every promotion John has been given. It's just my opinion but the heart of the problem is John. Unfortunately, he'll never be let go so we look to be in trouble for some time to come.

You treed your own thread. When it comes to the issues with this team he is the Alpha and the Omega.

What if we could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he doesn't like bacon?

John you're fired. Wait. Guess you have a family pass. Must be nice to not be held accountable. Perks of the family business.

Owners should be held to a standard
The NFL should have the right to force sell any franchise that fails to have a winning season in a decade
Or something like that to keep bad owners from clinging on and to make things A LOT more interesting.
