Fans react to new Chargers GM

Tom TelescoSAN DIEGO – Fans seem pretty excited about Chargers new general manager Tom Telesco, but say they want to see results on the field.

Many fans said the new hire is a long time coming.

“Last season we wanted those firings,” said Chargers fan Carlton Jennings. “It’s a year late, but we’ll take it.”

Telesco comes from 15 years with the winning Indianapolis Colts program and fans said they hope he brings that success to San Diego.

“He’s made marvelous decisions on the team,” said Steve Stingl, Chargers fan. “Indianapolis has been a longtime contender against the Chargers and they’ve picked up a lot of good players during that time. If you look at their performances, they’ve been to and won the Super Bowl. That’s somewhere that San Diego is trying to get to.”

Fans recognize Telesco has a lot of work ahead. Top of the agenda is hiring Norv Turner’s replacement.

“First, we need a good head coach,” said Jennings. “Then we need to shore up the offensive line and get Philip Rivers some protection so he stays on his feet.”

With a new G.M. always comes new expectations and fans are already making it clear they eventually want to see a Chargers team that goes all the way.

“Definitely a Super Bowl,” said Manny Carrillo, Chargers fan. “I mean, I would like to see a whole different team be inspired through the coach and GM. Of course bring in new people and succeed.”

For now fans will have to wait patiently until next season to find out if all the changes really make a difference.
