Backstage Chargers, episode 10: Playoff edition
These episodes for the Chargers backstage have been a great look behind the scenes of what is going on with the team. The episode starts out with leading up to the Broncos game week 17. The message head coach Anthony Lynn was sending to the team was that they had lost two out of three games to Denver. They needed to even the score. The same message was sent a couple weeks prior about the Chiefs. The message got home. One of the takeaways for me was how Lynn made it seem like that week 17 game was almost win or go home. Lynn preached that the team didn’t need to worry about the playoffs. It worked.
The theme changed the following week as the team prepared for the Ravens. “You earned the right to get here from what you did in 2018. But what you did in 2018 won’t matter in 2019.” Love that. Lynn went around the room to the coaches and asked them to share with the team one detail that they’ll need to focus on in the playoffs.
The clips, the plays, the soundbites. This is the best episode yet.
