  Chargers | Bolts to be more aggressive on offense    Tue Jan 26, 07:43 PM

Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said Tuesday, Jan. 26, the team will be more aggressive in 2021 because he's a 'big fan of going for it on fourth down.' Lombardi cited data as showing NFL coaches generally aren't aggressive enough.

  Chargers | Joe Lombardi tabbed to run LAC offense    Mon Jan 25, 04:35 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi agreed to terms to become the new offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Lombardi has been a rising star in coaching circles over the last five years with the Saints. He'll be in charge of running an offense with potential superstar quarterback Justin Herbert. His relationship with Herbert will be key, but Lombardi has learned a lot working with Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford (for one year) before that.

  Chargers | Justin Herbert cool under pressure    Thu Jan 21, 09:58 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert was pressured on 230 dropbacks in 2020, the second most of any quarterback, and he recorded a league-best 99.4 passer rating on those plays.

Footballguys view: A strong sign of a good quarterback is what he does under duress. The film and the advance data both show how Herbert is cool under fire. He's not the type of player who feels the rush and it shows in his play. It looks like the Chargers got a franchise quarterback.

  Chargers | Anthony Lynn let go    Mon Jan 4, 11:55 AM

Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn was fired Monday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: Lynn had a 33-31 record with the Chargers during the regular season and made one trip to the postseason with them in four years. The team regularly lost games late under Lynn and that's what cost him his job even though the team has a young rising star in QB Justin Herbert. With the assets on both sides of the ball, and Herbert at quarterback, the Chargers will be quite the attractive destination for a new head coach.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen put on COVID list    Thu Dec 31, 04:50 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: That ends Allen's season as he won't be cleared to play in Week 17 against the Chiefs. Allen fought through injuries to post 100 catches for 992 yards and eight receiving touchdowns. He's signed through the 2024 season, Allen has a cap hit of $19.2 million in 2021 with $8.1 million in dead money. The future is bright for the Chargers because of QB Justin Herbert and Allen can continue to be a dominant presence for the team so long as he's healthy.
