The news came just an hour or so after the Bucs-Saints game divisional round game came to close on Sunday night, so most were essentially done with the excitement of the day when the dam broke unexpectedly.

With breaking news, there’s always going to be plenty of immediate reactions, so below I through together what was said about the Staley hire from current Chargers players and other members of the media.
