I'm excited to see what Mr. Telesco brings to the table. He learned under Bill Polean, both the good and the bad, and should bring new ideas to the team. Whether those new ideas are good or not is a whole different story but I can't wait for his first draft. Just don't trade up to pick a fullback ahead of Jamal Charles and we'll be ok.


Yep, this is an exciting guy. Russ Lande on twitter said that he really liked Telesco, and said that whenever he's seen him, he was always working the tape, watching guys all the time, and really knows his stuff. Cant be a bad sign.

Russ is pretty much who sold me on Telesco when I was teetering. I trust Russ, talk to him through Twitter a decent amount and the guy is legit (former scout for both the Rams and the Browns, has solid rapport with guys like Schefter and Clayton).

I'm cautiously optimistic. I still don't trust a decision made by anybody with the last name Spanos. The optimism comes from the good things I'm reading, and the fact that Wolf was involved.

Had this made for me by one of the graphic gurus at Bolttalk. Now I just have to figure out how to mod it into a sig. So epic!

Colts OC Bruce Arians confirmed that the Chargers' head-coaching job is more attractive now that former Colts VP of football operations Tom Telesco is the new general manager.
"I think so much of (the) success that teams have are great relationships between the general manager and head coach. And it's not who has control of the roster. It's how do we get the best players?" said Arians. "I had the opportunity to work for 12 weeks as a head coach this year with Ryan Grigson and Tommy Telesco, and it was a fantastic relationship." Arians is also a candidate in Chicago, Cleveland, and Philadelphia.


Get ready for it because it's coming.

I'm not sure. Arians can be interested all he wants. I think Telesco will do his due diligence. I'd only be fine with Arians if he did not call plays and did not just bring in his guy.

Cant find/too lazy to find the tweet, but Roman is reportedly now the favorite for the Jags job, as he is good friends with the new GM Caldwell. So it looks like we've got some competition for him.

Telesco, Caldwell, and Roman are all really close.

He's evidently good friends with both. And Caldwell and Telesco are apparently friends, in some capacity, from high school.

I still think that having Rivers and a mostly-very-good defense already in place should tilt the balance in our favor. Then again, we also seem intent on saddling any HC with Pagano (not saying it's a bad thing, but it may not be an ideal situation for a HC that may have already been eyeing other coaches he'd worked with in the past as guys he'd like to have working for him).

Alright, this may be a stupid question, but if do in fact get Roman (knock on wood), could we steal Tomsula and keep him as a DL coach, if we simply put the Assistant Head Coach tag on him? Or does he have to be upgraded to a DC? That would be an interesting way to get Roman some of the defensive staff that he wants...

I wouldn't want to fire Don Johnson after what he did with the young DL. And position coaches can have lateral moves.

Apparently Lovie is in San Diego right now

And to the post above, Don Johnson was DL coach under Lovie Smith before Rod Marinelli was brought in.

I don't see much reason to bring Lovie in. We'd have to overhaul yet again and fire most of the defensive staff, including a guy showing major potential in Pags.

We're/We've interviewing/interviewed Gus Bradley as well, he'd be a guy that i'd really like at HC, as well as Zimmer, WInston Moss, Roman among some others. Still want Hue Jackson at OC.
