    Just because Arians has been overlooked doesn't mean he hasn't got the chops. Beathard plucked Bobby Ross from obscurity. Prior to that, were NFL teams seriously looking at him as an HC? Nope.

    Was it Jimmy Raye or the Jimmy Raye puppet? I would prefer the puppet.

    Bummed it wasn't my guy Gamble, but relieve it wasn't Raye.

    Can the new GM fire the PR guy? I don't wanna read any "Chill Pill" BS this time next year.

    Heard his press conference, he sounds like a great guy with a good head on his shoulders and I like what he brings to the table. He's a fresh perspective for a team that definitely needs it.

    I'm not necessarily excited about Telesco because I don't know enough about GM's (other than I feel Indy had been mediocre for most of Manning's tenure there, he just masked it) but I am excited about a change. If we can get a good coaching candidate I'll be cautiously optimistic for this upcoming season (I've learned against getting my hopes up with this team).

    Ironically, he might want to look at the career of this new boss. He was expecting become GM of the Colts, but was Passed over. Now he's in a good position as GM.

    Where did you hear he was livid?

    It'll be a bummer if we lose the guy, but I'm not opposed to more new blood in all areas of the organization.

    Annie Heilbrun (or however she spells it). Wasn't anything published. But she responded to a tweet I sent saying he was having another of his "stern silent spells".

    It's a four-year contract for Tom Telesco as the Chargers' new general manager, per team spokesman. No word on salary.

    This guy sounds just like AJ Smith with his player personnel philosophies.

    I'm fine with building through the draft...... it's the only way that makes sense, frankly. The Eagles showed just how iffy it is to use free agency to build a roster.

    The real question, is can he make the right choices come draft day...... we'll have to wait and see.

    It's not like that philosophy has done terribly wrong by the Niners, Packers, Seahawks, Texans... not to mention two of the other more recent Super Bowl winners (Giants and Steelers).
