Chargers’ Anthony Lynn reaffirms confidence in young offensive line
Despite preseason hype and a trip to the postseason last year, head coach Anthony Lynn and the Los Angeles Chargers have done nothing but disappoint early on in the 2019 regular season. However, Lynn is sticking with his guys and continues to defender his roster — especially his young offensive line.
“We have a good, young offensive line, and those guys will be fine,” Lynn recently told Daniel Popper of The Athletic. “I’m not worried about those guys.”
Lynn isn’t the slightest bit worried about his offensive line either, even after a dismal 2-4 start to the campaign.
“Because I believe in those young men,” Lynn added in regards to his concerns about his offensive line, via Popper.
Although the always dangerous AFC West division isn’t as stellar as initially expected with the Kansas City Chiefs currently leading the way at 4-2, the Chargers remain in the cellar at a two games under the .500 mark. Thanks to the team’s loss to the rival Denver Broncos from a few weeks ago, the Chargers sit behind the Broncos in the AFC West despite each team having an identical record. It is also worth noting that the Oakland Raiders sit in second place in the divisional standings at a nearly even 3-2 — even after encountering quite the tumultuous offseason.
Most recently, Lynn’s squad came up short against the ailing Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football, which dropped Los Angeles to 2-4 on the year. Next week, the Chargers will take on the equally troubled Tennessee Titans.
