Time for the Chargers to Part Ways with Dean Spanos

The Chargers have officially fired coach Brandon Staley and GM Tom Telesco, marking the end of a pitiful era for the team. Unfortunately, owner Dean Spanos is still a major issue for the organization. With Justin Herbert out for the season, the Chargers are struggling, and the NFL should be upset to see such a talented QB languishing in a forgettable organization. Austin Ekeler called out coaching and teammates after the team’s Week 1 loss to the Dolphins, and the Chargers have continued to disappoint. The lack of talent around Herbert is clear, and the team’s defense has struggled under Staley’s leadership. The Chargers should be fun to watch, but instead, they’re languishing under Spanos’ lack of commitment to building a successful team. Other young quarterbacks like Jalen Hurts and Joe Burrow have proven that success is possible with the right support, but the Chargers are unable to provide that for Herbert. Spanos’ reluctance to invest in the team’s success is evident, and it’s clear that significant change is needed for the Chargers to become competitive once again.
