It’s two podcasts in one week and this show covers nothing but the Chargers new man in charge Anthony Lynn. The guys cover his background, strengths, weaknesses, the system he runs and some concerns they have about the new hire. No questions this week, they just converse for 38 minutes on everything they know about Anthony Lynn and decide if this is a good selection by the Chargers for their new Head Coach.
This version of the Lightning Round Podcast is NSFW.
Jamie and Garrett record the Podcast while nerves are still raw and emotions still high about the Chargers move to Los Angeles. It’s the first time both of them have personally dealt with the relocation since the announcement. They start from the beginning and talk about how they became fans of the Chargers and how we got to this point. The guys air it all out and then talk about the future of the Lightning Round Podcast.
Jamie was wrong, Mike McCoy is gone. So far we’ve heard six potential interviews for the position of Chargers new Head Coach. The guys breakdown all six options, talk about some other Chargers coaching rumors and also include all the Head Coaches that have been fired and if any of them would be a good fit for the team. They take a whole lot of questions about other possible Head Coaches, more draft questions and so much more on this Post-McCoy era edition of the Lightning Round Podcast.
This season has been rough and it’s time to start looking towards next year already even if the season isn’t over. Jamie and Garrett give their personal Top 5 realistic heading coaching candidates for 2017. Not only do they discuss possible Chargers coaches but they also talk about their nightmare scenario at Head Coach and their dream scenario at Head Coach. They answer a lot of questions including their opinions on bringing on Norv Turner at Offensive Coordinator or Rex Ryan as Defensive Coordinator and a lot more on this episode of the Lightning Round Podcast.
It’s a Chargers fans Christmas story. Listen to Garrett and Jamie tell you the tale of the Dean Who Stole Christmas and a group of San Diegans who overcame all obstacles this holiday season. After we’ve all had a little holiday cheer, the guys do an abbreviated breakdown of the game against the Raiders and take a slew of listener questions, that and a whole lot more of this Christmas edition of the Lightning Round Podcast.
The Chargers got run over by the (then) 4 win Panthers and the guys sacrificed their sanity by recording the show directly after the game. They talk about Rivers bad decisions, why it’s all about development and assessment for the rest of the year and let’s go all in on #DownWithTheTank2. Jamie answers whether he still thinks McCoy will be extended, Garrett talks about the music programming at Qualcomm and they throw a few new hashtags for draft season. All that and a whole lot more on this week’s episode of the Lightning Round Podcast.
The Chargers lose and are 5-7 on the year with less than a 1% chance to make the playoffs, so what should the team do now with 4 games remaining? The guys discuss where the new direction of the offense should be headed and why the focus ought to be off Philip Rivers. They also talk about why the team needs to do better than Melvin Ingram and Craig Mager, actually take a question about the stadium talks and of course gush about Joey Bosa on this week’s episode of the Lightning Round Podcast.
The Chargers get the win after the bye and there a lot of good things to discuss on the show. Most players benefited from the extra week off and it seems the Chargers coordinators did too. The guys talk about their philosophy on signing Free Agent Wide Receivers, the extensive Bill Belichick coaching tree and should we all go get Joey Bosa tattoos? That and much more on this edition of the Lightning Round Podcast.
Step into the classroom while your instructors with no prior classroom experience grade out the Chargers position groups. Consider yourself lucky they are discussing football and not Basic Algebra because they are giving out “midseason” grades with the season more than halfway. The guys hand out letter grades and of course begin discussing new coaches, possible free agents and the draft because you won’t stop asking them about it. This is the bye week edition of the Lightning Round Podcast.
The Chargers lost a game they needed in order to help their playoff chances and head into the bye at 4-6. The duo talks about Philip Rivers questionable decisions in the 4th quarter and how nobody else was helping around him either. Since the Chargers playoff hopes are all but gone the guys get questions about the draft, biggest position of need, head coaching candidates and is it time to start #DownWithTheTank2?
