Chargers Embarrassingly Mismanage Field Goal At End Of Half On The Same Week Chargers HC Anthony Lynn Took Over Special Teams Duties

The Chargers continue to struggle on special teams and head coach Anthony Lynn deserves all the blame.

Earlier this week, Lynn took over special teams duties after several mistakes led to big plays last week in the team’s game against the Patriots.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn told reporters on Wednesday that he will be taking over the duties of special teams coordinator for the rest of the season. The Chargers gave up a punt return touchdown and had a field goal blocked for a touchdown against New England.

Itโ€™s the second change to the special teams operations this season. Lynn previously reassigned George Stewart from special teams coordinator to a senior analyst role in November. Assistant special teams coach Keith Burns and senior coaching assistant Chris Caminiti were tasked with filling Stewartโ€™s role.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like the special teams unit is performing any better with Lynn at the helm. During Chargers-Falcons game on Sunday, Lynn was unable to set his team up to kick a chip-shot field goal after making some terrible clock management decisions to end the half.

Lynn was immediately mocked by NFL fans.
