LA Chargers Team Coach
Anthony Lynn was the head coach of the team when it moved to a new city, with no NFL stadium. But Lynn motivated the team, despite it being in rough shape. During his first year as a coach, the team went 9-7. Last year, it went 12-4 and got a playoff game.
The team has become a significant rival for the Super Bowl. But can it remain motivated under extreme stress?
When it comes to the coaching style of Lynn, no one can deny his leadership. He is now in his third year coaching this team. He brings back an intact coaching team.
As for the QB situation, Philip Rivers will return for his 16th year with this team. His durability is undeniable considering that he has not missed any game in the last 14 seasons. Despite him turning 38 this December, he is still a reliable QB for the LA Chargers.
But the team has another option. Cardale Jones, a former Ohio State QB, will return to this team. Then, the former Buffalo starter Tyrod Taylor will be joining the team after suffering an injury last year.
The Biggest Enemy of the Chargers
One of the worst things that could happen to the team is an injury of some noteworthy players. For instance, Rusell Okung might miss six weeks as he deals with a blood clot. He is an impressive starting left tackle. The coach might need some shuffling and use other players he has not picked to play before.
Predictions for LA Chargers
The team is stable. Thanks to its head coach and the entire coaching staff. However, Chargers are up against a second-best team in their category, i.e. the Chiefs. This team will be strong not just on offense but also on their defense.
Then again, the Chargers is a tough team to beat. Even though it has not done enough effort to keep up, it is still in a strong position to get a wild card spot.
