Anthony Lynn Says: ‘It’s not the same old Chargers’
Despite starting the season off 0-2 Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn is remaining optimistic about the rest of the season.
Lynn also clapped back at fans who are saying it’s “the same ole Chargers” when referring to their lowly start.
“We talked about that a little bit in our team meeting,” Lynn said, per ESPN’s Eric D. Williams. “Some people say, ‘Same old Chargers.’ It’s not the same old Chargers. We lost a couple of close games. We have 14 games left. We’ll see. We’ll see at the end.”
Chargers’ kicker Younghoe Koo has shouldered most of the ire from fans, and the blame, for the team’s bad start as Koo has missed two key field goals in their 1st two games.
Koo missed a chance to tie Denver back in Week 1 and a kick to take the lead over Miami last Sunday.
Los Angeles can also look to the lack of a running game as a component for their slow start as the team is averaging 54 rushing yards per game.
“I’ve always been a coach who takes whatever the defense gives you,” Lynn said. “But I do believe at some point, you’re gonna have to run the football to win.
“And the running game will travel, in all types of weather. You can’t always pass the ball. We do have to get the running game better.”
