I heard the outcries that my podcasts and titles were too pessimistic and negative and...well.....yeah, this podcast isn’t going to help that.

I thought it might be a good idea to do a “reasons for optimism” and a “reasons for pessimism” podcast, similar to the old “Chargers will win” and “Chargers will lose” posts, and I started with the negative side because you should always start with the negative side.

Tomorrow, I promise, there will be a Locked On Chargers episode in which I lay out reasons why I think the 2017 Chargers could end up going deep into the playoffs this year. Today, we’ll focus on what could go wrong, including:

  • Melvin Gordon’s small sample size
  • Gus Bradley’s concerning track record
  • The question marks surrounding Anthony Lynn
