Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn is under fire for his playcalling at the end of the team’s game on Sunday.
Late in the fourth quarter, the Chargers were able to get to the goal line with about a minute left in the game and down 10 points with a Justin Herbert hail mary.

Unfortunately, the Chargers completely mismanaged their goal-line situation with a series of bizarre decisions.
The Chargers converted a Hail Mary on 4th and 27. They were down 10. Then:
• they ran the ball with no timeouts
• threw an incomplete pass instead of spiking it

On the final play of the game, Herbert tried to run a QB sneak and got crushed when his offensive line dropped back to block for a pass play.

It’s unclear what happened on that final play but Chargers fans are calling for Anthony Lynn to be fired.
Anthony Lynn should not coach football.

That QB Sneak might just be the play to end the Anthony Lynn era
