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'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. :(

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.

    • Just got back home from the game--a great time.  Cal just way too good.   Walking out the stadium and the first thing I see is a guy wearing a Trent Richardson Colts jumper--Had a quiet chuckle to myself
    • I can see how George fell into a bad situation with the O-Line issues, etc., but I think that George's problem was George.  Andrew's attitude is entirely different.  I think George matured a lot from being in the league but Andrew already has that maturity.  He admits his mistakes, so much so that I think he's very hard on himself.      
    • I will go 4. I think it's slightly Below Average/close to Average. We did play well at times with Hasselbeck last season but having said that when it counted he even lost to the Texans in Indy. Our O.Line should improve with Kelly and having more depth but it's Average at best and has played Below Average to Poor in most of Andrew's career. Our D.Line could be Good if it can stay healthy - Mathis upcoming year is a mystery on what impact he can provide, of course when Davis is healthy he is a Top 10 corner as well but our D has been up and down from week to week history wise in the Andrew era as well. I think Jackson is Good but overall our LBacking core is suspect. One week our Defense plays Good, then the next it plays Bad! Our SPTeams with Pat and Adam are Great so that helps my rating and TY and Moncrief are Good but we still have little to no run game, Gore is Average at this point in his career. I like this question because if it was asked of Russell Wilson, this would easily be an 8 overall, a 9 when Lynch was there because of him and that Defense they have had, add Wilson to that they were a 10 back in 2013 and 2014. If Andrew gets injured this season we are in deep trouble, it wont be 8-8 Average, Hass made a lot of that happen. It will be closer to 6-10. I think our Coaching staff has a lot to prove too, I do like Chud as I think he will be good for Andrew.    -Bottomline we are a 4 without Andrew. Andrew makes us a 7. 7 is Good but not SB material.
    • What a crazy preseason it has been already with the cancelled HOF game, the impressive play of our rookies and all of the injuries we are dealing with.    Hopefully everybody gets away from this one healthy. I want to see more 3 wide sets from the offense and somebody, anybody to step up at cb on defense.
    • No that was the other Patriots RB (Vereen).  He is a between the tackles guy.

All opinions & perspectives are welcome here. We have football fanatics, causal observers, & just curious people on here who like to vent, blow steam, broaden their horizons, & just chuckle at stuff the regulars always say. All team allegiances are encouraged to express themselves politely & peacefully here, which is pretty cool too.    I just watch the games at home on Direct TV Sunday ticket by myself usually.
