Tom Telesco Officially Chargers' GM (edit)

70 posts in this topic

Tom Telesco is the VP of football operations for the Colts. It's down to him and Jimmy Raye (Chargers' director of player personnel). Telesco is the favorite supposedly (ESPN Rumours).

Anyways, if Telesco is the GM, who do you think would be right at the top of his list for HC: Big Bad Bruce. He obviously has a familiarity with him, and Arians had that great 9-3 record this year. Bruce was being considered as the next HC even before any Telesco-GM talks arose.

Just some news I thought I'd share with you guys.

I wish them both good luck. Just not Andrew Luck type of good luck, if you know what I mean.

I'd prefer not to lose Telesco. He does his job extremely well for us.

Arians would make sense.  I wouldn't rule out Lovie Smith either.  While Telesco didn't work with Smith he worked with Dungy and Smith is off the Dungy coaching tree.

I agree, but I think he deserves his shot, and I'm happy for him.

Hmmmm....Dungy out of retirement to live in San Diego? Mrs. Dungy might agree to that.

I feel Telesco has been a little bit overlooked with the Colts.  He is the last of the Polian guys....other than I guess Clyde 'Dial the Magic' Christenson.   :spit:

 

I like BA and love Telesco, but if SanDiego is their calling the Chargers have called 2 good men!!!!

 

With all of the changes coming with the Colts, adding a new OC and VP of operations adds to the fun!!!  It has been an awesome year for our Colts, and this off season will be a great ride as well.  With Grigs and Pagano "Rolling up their sleeves for Round 2!!!!  Next step toward the annual Monster!  :coltshelmet:  :coltshelmet:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :coltslogo:  :coltslogo:  :colts:  :colts:  :colts: !!!!!!!

Wouldn't that be weird if we traded Bruce for Norv.

 

Don't go Tom! I can see him leaving though, since he got passed up for the GM job here. :(

I am not a Norv fan....hate seeing that glum face at the podium after a loss.....

 

This is going to make it interesting when/if things go down.......gonna be fun for us!  :)

I've went from liking Arians, to not liking him, now back to hoping that he turns down any HC gig he might get offered. If I knew for sure that Grigson wouldn't offer the job to Clyde, I wouldn't mind Arians moving on, but it scares me to death to think that Clyde could get the OC job.

I know EXACTLY what you mean.  I feel the same way. :D

I agree with you and Jason.....if BA is not here, we need fresh blood in here...not Clyde.  For those that like him...he is a good man....just not my OC.  Jim Caldwell was a great guy too......:)

Kinda like we traded Caldwell for Pagano heck we even tossed in Painter as a bonus and they didn't want him either lol.

Looking like it's official in SD -- Adam Schefter is reporting that Telesco is back in SD, and they are supposed to announce their new GM today.

Bitter sweet. I wish Tom the best in San Diego, and I think it's a really good fit. (By the way, this makes two Polian disciples to get GM gigs this season, and neither of them are his sons.)

 

I wonder what we do to replace him.

Tom was great, but I'd imagine that he knows Grigson is gonna be here for a while. I wonder if Grigson has anyone in mind for VP of Ops.

I would say "good luck" if they weren'tgoing to San Diego! I wish them all the best personally, but if they do both go the the Chargers then I wish them all the worst "football luck" possible.... I strongly dislike those guys (for obvious reasons) :thmdown:

In all seriousness what did Telesco do for the Colts last year and this year?  How does the  VP of fb operations differ from the GM?

 

Is it time to bring Jeff Saturday back to fill this role?

Why do you all assume that Telesco views Bruce Arains as the best choice for the head coaching job ? His main objective is to win , not give the job to someone he knows well. Fact is Arains was never given big consideration for a head coaching job and he's now 60. I just don't think Arains is a slam dunk at this point in time.

Saturday might make a good line Coach or Union Official.

Be a really bad deal/timing to lose this guy and Arians in year one.

    • I know it depends on how he plays. And I think he is going to play awfully.. but we will see.
    • I think it had to do with the fact that any little injury has to be on the report with one of the designations. so it was a way of basically saying it's something minor but he will play. It was supposed to give a better picture as to the availability of a player. I can see Teams like the Patriots using "questionable" like they used probable in previous years. Now every week Gronk and Brady will be listed as questionable. Seems infuriating for fantasy football,  as well as for Teams trying to cater gameplans around certain players. 
    • I just like the Rod Woodson school of reporting/approach I guess where you are confident in your experience, do your own thing, don't let other personalties manipulate your POV, & you basically ignore all the twitter social media crap out there. I hope Wayne follows this model of broadcasting protocol & JJ Watt too when he's done playing ferocious, pass rusher too.    Yeah I know, Mr. 99 reasons is on Twitter & FaceBook, which is alright since he always handles himself the right way. Keep plugging away at rehab JJ. Love ya man! The league ain't the same without ya...Heal fast okay? Just kidding! 
    • Robinson is really an unknown commodity at this point. No one knows if he was pushing for a payday last yr or if he actually just hit his stride in the NFL. It also could just be that he needed a better supporting cast than he had in New Orleans (it's not like they areknown for their defense).    But all things considered,  I suppose this is similar to what Washington did with Josh Norman,  as he really only had 1, maybe 1.5 good seasons in Carolina.  Only difference is our cap hit is much lower and Robinsons ceiling isn't quite as high. If they have reason to be optimistic about it so do we.    Also I'm not sure i trust grigson signing offensive line depth. He hasn't managed to get a good free agent lineman yet. But I guess even a broken clock has to be right twice a day. Probably wouldn't have hurt to bring someone in on a small contract. 
    • I get what you're saying RTB & to be frank, there's nothing I'd love to see more then to have Reggie rip Deion Sanders a new one since his condescending smugness always rubs me the wrong way & royally ticks me off. I just deplore his over the top bravado. I find this quality charming in Rex Ryan but I wanna smack #21 hard every time his belittling comments rear their ugly head. Marshall Faulk is much more fair & balanced than Deion ever is.    The one I always have a crisis of conscious over is analyst Shaun O'Hara because I love the NY Giants lineman because he's very funny & great at breaking down plays, but he always slams the Colts line on TV for as long as I can remember. He's not malicious; I just don't think our o-line is as horrific as he likes to claim that it is on a frequent basis.    Getting back to Wayne, I agree you should never forget where you came from & a bias for the Colts is fine as long as Reggie can admit what our true vulnerabilities are because you never get better as a team burying your head in the sand pretending your weaknesses don't exist. Reggie knows this.
