The cases for and against Chargers moving to Los Angeles - Eric Williams
"That’s really frustrating and disappointing to me," Telesco said. "If there was ever a year that we had to get this going, from 9-7 and 9-7 to this year -- this was the year. That bothers me. And it’s going to be on my record for the rest of my career."

For Chargers, Bosa is a system fit - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
He's such a compelling all-around prospect, it only makes sense that the team would heed the truism that talent drives scheme. One reason is his excellent handwork, which enabled him to play bigger than his size. He routinely warded off or shucked college blockers who weighed 300 pounds or more. He was stout against the run, yet also explosive against the run and pass. And it didn't matter where he lined up. He beat tight ends and tackles, guards and centers.

Telesco says he failed Bolts fans, SD - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Tom Telesco is different. He creates the sense he fathoms Chargers fans and what the team means to them. He talks about how his own failures caused fans pain this year, and how the 4-12 season added to fans' angst over potential relocation. He calls the past season a blown chance. Telesco has, if by default, become the best spokesman in management for a Chargers franchise that, at levels above the players, has often come off as out of touch.

Injuries are no excuse for Chargers' 4-12 record - Eric Williams
Although they said it’s not an excuse, San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy and general manager Tom Telesco pointed to the team’s rash of injuries as part of the reason the team limped to a surprising 4-12 finish in 2015. Well, McCoy and Telesco are right. Injuries should not be an excuse for the team’s poor performance.

Possibilities aplenty for NFL's return to Los Angeles - Nick Wagoner
The preferred alternative by both teams, the 168 acres would be dedicated to football only, including room available for NFL Network studios and offices, along with exhibit space made available for a West Coast wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Carson project provides a solution for the two California teams with antiquated facilities in San Diego and Oakland. And it brings them in on equal footing, avoiding the owner-tenant conflict the league could have in Inglewood

Three things to watch for Chargers at owners meetings - Eric Williams
On Tuesday, owners are expected to review the relocation guidelines and initially decide whether a team qualifies for relocation. The Chargers have likely met those guidelines, showing a good-faith effort to get a stadium deal done in San Diego. Once owners determine that all three teams have fulfilled the relocation guidelines and are qualified to move, the Carson and Inglewood projects will be evaluated. And owners will ultimately vote on which project they believe will have the best, long-term success in Los Angeles.
