    That one definitely seems like a sacrificial lamb.

    A good first step towards making change without question. It is as I said; T.J. Watt was an anomaly. The other linebackers have not received sufficient coaching whatsoever. It was his time.


    I do however, wish him all the best. That being said, get rid of Keith Butler next; Olsavsky soon thereafter.

    In honor of JP eazy peazy . They need to stop hiring former players/stars only to have them do a **** job. Fire one, rinse and hire a new coach.

    Maybe Tomlin will finally take the reigns of this defense rather than be a spectator.

    In business/sports, "Contract up, not renewed = Fired" just FYI.

    And makes zero sense whatsoever. I could understand Porter, sorta. But the WR coach? Huh?

    I'm guessing he's sharing part in the AB blame game. Didn't do enough to control AB and is now wearing it.

    Butler is probably staying. He would have went before / with Porter. They should have fired butler and brought in a new DC and then bring in assistants for their scheme.

    No one is calling out Olsavsky. The inside linebackers were horrible as well. Rb's ran right up the gut

    The ILB calls the plays...... Maybe part of the miscommunication issues were because of this. IDK.....

    My issues was playing Bostic AND Vince at the same time.... They play the same position ....

    Is that Butlers call??? Was our run issues Butlers schemes and play calling ???

    Asking Fort to cover a WR is ALL Butler.......

    I’m not a big fan of Olsavsky, but I don’t see him as being nearly the problem that Butler and Porter were. Other than Shazier, Olsavsky hasn’t had much to work with. Im seeing flashes of starter potential in a journeyman (Fort) under his tutelage. I’m sure he’ll be gone if Butler goes though.

    Whoever had the idea to put a linebacker on Chargers #1 receiver Keenan Allen 85% of the snaps should be the first one fired.

    That would have expired after the 2017 season. He must have got an extension, but I can’t find it. But 2 years would be typical. Therefore, 1 left.
