Anthony Lynn had a promising start as head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers with a 9-7 rookie campaign followed by a 12-4 playoff season in 2018. But from there Lynn has struggled. Last year the Chargers faced a barrage of injuries as they fell to 5-11. Lynn was given a mulligan because of the injury issue. This year the seat is hot with the flames fanning more and more. The Chargers have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in several games this year. Certainly, defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is going to catch much of the blame and may pay for the failures with his job. The question is if Lynn survives as well. The one positive has been the performance of rookie first round draft pick Justin Herbert at quarterback. By all accounts Herbert has exceeded expectations and is now set to become the Chargers quarterback for the next decade. This may spark ownership to shop for a more dynamic and credible head coach going forward. It will be hard for the Chargers to sell credibility after two straight years of bad football under Lynn.

New England Patriots Week 12 Recap

Last week the Patriots got back on the winning side with a 20-17 payout over the Arizona Cardinals as 1-point home dogs with under the total of 51 paying too. Nick Folk was the hero with a game winning 50-yard field goal. New England is now 5-6 both straight up and against the spread with 4-7 under the total.

The Patriots rank 21st for total offense, 29th for passing, 5th for rushing, 27th for scoring, and 24th for turnovers. Defensively New England is 16th in the NFL, 14th against the pass, 21st against the rush, 12th for points allowed, and 10th for takeaways.

The Cam Newton sugar rush ended long ago. Newton threw for only 84 yards with 2 interceptions against Arizona.

Many fans, gamblers, media, and members of the football community have waited for this moment when they could take shots at Bill Belichick. Certainly, the Hoodie is the GOAT of all coaches, including Vince Lombardi, Paul Brown, Bill Walsh, Don Shula and the rest. No coach has overcome what Belichick has in regards to competitive balance, salary cap, revolving rosters, and all of the other challenges that are unique in today’s NFL.

However, for as great as Belichick has been his whining about salary cap issues being the source of the Patriots problems rings hollow. For several years the Hoodie hasn’t successfully solved the Patriots lack of playmakers. Tom Brady was able to hide the lack of game breakers better than any other quarterback could have but even he couldn’t push New England in the playoffs last year. And it was one of the deciding factors in Brady’s decision to depart for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cam Newton was a flash in the pan early for New England but all of the blame can’t be placed on the 2015 NFL MVP. Like Brady, the fact remains that Newton hasn’t been surrounded with a lot of help. Meanwhile the defense has showed the strain of having to carry the team with little margin for error.
