San Diego Chargers Weekly Poll Question: How do you feel about the Tom Telesco hiring?

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

We've had nearly a week to digest the news. Let us know how you feel about it.

Tom Telesco, who had been with the Indianapolis Colts Organization since 1998, was named General Manager of the San Diego Chargers last week. He had been one of the key members of the Colts front office for over a decade most recently as the Vice President of Football Operations.

It had been reported widely that Jimmy Raye III would be promoted within. This was almost certainly because of Kevin Acee's report to that effect and it now seems that Acee's source was most likely Raye. Based on the results of last week's poll question, a majority of you are happy that the new General Manager of the Chargers isn't Raye. This week's question seeks to find out if you're happy with who will be assuming that role.

Telesco's role in the Colts' drafts of the last decade plus has already been broken down in detail by John Gennaro, so we won't rehash those details here. The short version is that they were very successful up until about the time the younger Polian took a bigger role in the process. Prior to that time, it is said that Telesco was the older Polian's number two.

It's impossible to say whether or not he'll be able to replicate his former boss' success, but there's certainly some amount of reason to be optimistic that he may be the right man to have pulling the trigger on draft day. We'll certainly find out soon enough, but for now vote in the poll and let us know in the comments how you feel about this decision.
