Chargers fan confidence is LOW, and there’s a coach they’d like to see take over...

Good afternoon Bolts From the Blue!

First off - my apologies on this getting out late. With Michael out, this is a feature that I was made aware of last week, and tried to play catch-up to get it out as quickly as possible. In the future, I’m hoping to get this out before our scheduled game each week.

We’ll be posting another round of questions soon, and of course, the first is always a how confident the fanbase is on the team’s current direction. As of last week, before the Chargers lost to the Packers, 4% of the fanbase was confident in the team’s direction, which is not encouraging. It will be interesting to see if we can limbo below that number after an embarrassing loss and press meltdown since then.

The second question we asked was whether or not the fanbase believes the defense would improve or decline if Staley were shown the door.

This one is pretty wild. A whooping 46% believe the defense would experience a marginal improvement, 30% believe the defense would improve significantly, and 17% believe it would be a neutral move.

That leaves 7% split between a marginal and significant regression in defensive performance. Brandon Staley has confidence in his play calling and schemes, but the overwhelming majority does not.

Well, this next question is funny. There’s not much to say about it, other than I should have included a follow-up covering what happens if we lost (hey, I’m still learning!).

We also asked who you think should replace Staley if he were to get fired. I’m in Camp Kellen Moore, mostly because I don’t want to lose Ryan Ficken, and selfishly love him tucked away as our best-kept secret. However, I definitely see the allure of giving him a shot as well.

Thank you again to everyone who participated! Keep your eyes out for another poll coming out soon!
