Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley is in a tough spot. Staley’s crew misplaced one other shut sport Sunday, and following the loss, he let reporters have it over the persevering with narrative that the staff’s playoff loss to Jacksonville in January has carried over into this season. Whether or not that’s the case or not, Coach Watch 2023 is formally on, and Staley is among the many frontrunners to get axed in the course of the season. Staley has but to show that nameless government unsuitable who known as him a “actually unhealthy coach with a fantastic roster.”

“I’m not frightened in regards to the Jacksonville loss,” Staley stated. “The Jacksonville loss hasn’t carried on to this season in any respect. In the event you’ve seen our coaching camp, otherwise you’ve seen the best way we’ve performed within the first two video games, it hasn’t had an affect on our staff in any respect. Our staff is linked, our staff has performed its coronary heart out the final two video games, and we’ve misplaced two powerful video games, but it surely has nothing to do with the Jacksonville sport. And that’s simply the reality…”

Proper now, all that issues for the Chargers, and Staley is getting that first win. They’ve scored 58 factors within the first two weeks of the season and misplaced each video games by a mixed 5 factors. This staff is way too proficient and has a head coach who was a defensive coordinator within the NFL for one yr earlier than taking up. He’s been given each probability different coaches don’t get, particularly when they’re black. Staley’s even had greater than many first-time white head coaches who by no means get a franchise quarterback. This man walked in, and Justin Herbert was able to go.

All Staley and his workers have carried out in LA is waste a pair years of Herbert’s profession. That’s all. There doesn’t appear to be any sense of urgency, however that’s from the surface wanting in. And Staley doesn’t get all of the blame, as there have been occasions when Herbert and the offense haven’t come via in clutch moments, particularly in these tight video games. Nonetheless, the protection (Staley’s specialty) has continued to drop the ball most of the time.

The Chargers journey to Minnesota for a Week 3 matchup with the Vikings, then again residence to welcome their division rival Las Vegas Raiders. Seeing how the following two weeks are basically street video games, Staley’s staff is in a troublesome place main into the bye week. In the event that they head into the bye 0-4, we might have heard the final of Staley as head coach of the Chargers. It’s not preferrred however dropping 4 video games to open the season in a troublesome AFC mainly means your postseason ambitions have evaporated. It’s too unhealthy Austin Ekeler was out for the Chargers yesterday, it’d be attention-grabbing to get his ideas on the loss.
