COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Tom Telesco and the Los Angeles Chargers spent most of their time “licking their wounds” after a second-half meltdown last Saturday at an AFC Wild Tour game in Jacksonville.

The general manager will only have more time for reflection, with so many questions looming in the off-season.

“To lose in the opening week — any playoff loss hurts, but losing in the first round is tough. Losing the Chargers 31-30 to the Jaguars after squandering a 27-point lead in the second quarter is tough,” Telesco said Thursday of the Chargers’ 31-30 loss in the second quarter. The way we lost.”We didn’t play our best when the best was needed, especially in the second half.”

The biggest question answered shortly after the loss was when owner Dean Spanos retained Telesco and coach Brandon Staley after speculation their jobs were at stake.

Telesco said the speculation—particularly about Staley—was more outside noise than Staley’s opinion inside the organization.
