In 2020 – and before – the Los Angeles Chargers had a heartbreaking habit of losing close matches.
The Chargers and Trainer Anthony Lynn had a strong end to the 2020 season but staying with the Bolts wasn’t enough for Lynn as he was fired on Monday.
Midway through his fourth season with the Chargers, Lynn and the Chargers had a 3-8 record after a 45-45 loss to the Patriots and it seemed like Lynn never returned. But the chargers decided to give him the rest of the season before coming to a deal on his future, and the decision was to wrap up his days as a club leader.
Lynn, 52, set a 33-31 record as the Chargers coach, starting with two successful seasons in 2017-18 and one post-season appearance, but the Bolts have had tough times again.
Although the Chargers ended the season with a four-game winning streak to make it 7-9, those last four came after the team was eliminated from playoffs.
It wasn’t that long ago that the Chargers published a 12: 4 campaign in 2018 and advanced to the AFC divisional round of the playoffs. Los Angeles followed this season with a lot of potential, but without a successor.
L. . A. went 5-11 in 2019 as injuries and excruciating defeats tarnished their season. In 2020, it was more exactly the same.
Seven of the Chargers’ losses this season were due to possession and three losses to three points or less.
They started the season without star defender Derwin James, who was lost for the year after his 2019 season was also cut short due to injury. Among the other notable charger injuries in 2020 were Mike Pouncey, Trai Turner, Austin Ekeler, Bryan Bulaga, Chris Harris, and Melvin Ingram.
Lynn has had a talented squad for the last two seasons, but the results haven’t followed suit, and even as injuries increased, the win-lose column was an argument against the coach’s return.
The second guess of Lynn’s decisions apparently followed every defeat, with every coach move being all the more effective with tight losses.
In the aforementioned week 13 defeat to the Patriots that seemed to be the end for Lynn, the Chargers allowed two special-team touchdowns, despite the disarray of the special-team coaching staff earlier in the season.
The Chargers could follow up with a string of close wins, but in the end it wasn’t enough to prevent a pull.
Lynn saw the Philip Rivers franchise move on and with 2020 No. . 6 Overall selection Justin Herbert, who produced a first season of rookie successes of all time.
Now, however, it is Lynn who withdraws when the Herbert era begins in earnest for the Bolts.
