There’s a new headline following Sunday’s 29-21 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but this time fans are calling for Gus Bradley’s job.
The team once again underperformed defensively. Following the game, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a post-game interview and Tua noted that the Chargers defense did “exactly what we expected”.
Following these comments, head coach Anthony Lynn took Bradley’s back by saying this is just a testament to how well Tua prepares.
On the contrary, some comments from former cornerback under Gus Bradley’s 2016-2017 Jacksonville Jaguars defense, Jalen Ramsey, came back to light from 2017.
Ramsey mentioned that the defensive play calls “never changed” with Bradley. This is a huge red flag.
It also could be a huge indicator as to how the Chargers defense has blown leads and completely folded in the second half against guys like Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and even Drew Lock this season.
It seems like they went to the locker room, checked the tape, and understood what Bradley was giving them, and responded.
A defensive coordinator must adjust on the fly, staying in the same calls on a consistent basis will get figured out fast by veteran quarterbacks, and for that reason, it may be time for the Chargers to find a new defensive coordinator.
