Last Saturday, the California team led 27-0 in a one-night stand against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second quarter. She eventually lowered the flag 31 to 30.
“I’m as angry as any Chargers fan,” Staley said Wednesday in his recap of the end of the season. I am because nobody is as invested in what happened as we are.”
“It’s the first time I’ve seen something like this with such a lead,” he added.
Staley was hired as a Chargers driver ahead of the 2021 season and went 19-15 in the regular season. The matchup against the “Jags” was the first he led in the playoffs.
Three days after the humiliating loss, the Los Angeles organization decided to show offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and quarterbacks coach Shane Day the exit door.
“There’s another level that we have to play offensively, especially on the line of scrimmage and in terms of ground play,” Staley said of the layoffs.
“It wasn’t an easy decision, but I couldn’t stay static. It’s important to always try to take your team to the next level.”
