    The Lightning Round Podcast #205: It’s been a hell of a ride! Thank you!

    The Lightning Round Podcast #205: It’s been a hell of a ride! Thank you!

    We’ve spent the last six seasons and 205 episodes living our dream by talking Chargers with thousands of fans every week. During that time, Garrett and Jamie have shared a wide range of emotions with everyone including joy, elation, shock, frustration, disappointment, rage, and love. Now, it’s time to share one last powerful emotion with all of you – sadness.
    We have decided this week’s show will be our last. While this wasn’t an easy decision for either one of us, the time is right.
    While we’re each moving on to fun, happy and important things in the immediate future, this was a tough choice to make. We have loved every second we’ve spent interacting with each and every one of you over the last six seasons and we’ll miss you.
    TLR started as a passion project for two guys with no reputation, no platform, and no listeners/followers. We had no reason to believe we’d reach 50 episodes, let alone 205, and none of it would have been possible without what we now refer to as our extended TLR family.
    Thanks to you, we were able to live out our sports writing and broadcasting dreams. We love and appreciate all of you, and want to thank you for giving us a platform and bringing us into your homes, cars, and workplaces each and every week for the last six seasons. We are truly humbled by all of it.
    We can only think of one way to wrap this up, and that’s by ending this message the same way we’ve ended every show since episode #1, which is by saying, “We will see you next time. Thanks everybody.”

    The Lightning Round Podcast #204: Excellent offensive gameplan

    The Chargers thrash the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road behind an effective offensive gameplan. The guys start off the show talking about why Denzel Perryman and Roderic Teamer got sent home before the game Sunday and why that may not be good news for Perryman's future with the team. They then rave about Philip Rivers performance, Austin Ekeler's historic game on the ground and through the air, Derwin James returning to form and if Melvin Ingram should get another contract after he’s a free agent in 2021.

    The Lightning Round Podcast #203: It’s time to start evaluating guys

    The Chargers find another unique way to lose a game, this time to the Denver Broncos. Coming off the bye week the team made some minor tweaks to the lineup and the results were both good and bad. The guys talk about Desmond King losing his returner role, more playing time for Kyzir White, the return of Derwin James and Adrian Phillips and of course the calamity of errors that lost the game for the Chargers.

Good podcast :)

As a huge Chargers fan in the UK, I look forward to listening to Jamie and Garrett every Tuesday evening. Win or loss, they provide an entertaining hour or so!

The only reason that I haven’t rated it as 5* is that I think that once they have decided that a player isn’t great, criticism is sometimes excessive and credit not really given if they do well in a game.
