Keyshawn Johnson, the former NFL wide receiver and current Fox Sports analyst, didn’t hold back on Monday afternoon when he called for the firing of Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley. Johnson’s strong statement came in the wake of the Chargers’ recent loss to the Green Bay Packers.
In Johnson’s view, the Chargers should have parted ways with Staley following their disappointing performance against the Packers. He expressed his frustration with Staley, stating, “I don’t see a way you bring him back. I’m just tired of him.”
The time to part ways with Brandon Staley was yesterday, according to @keyshawn…

Johnson’s stance goes beyond professional analysis; he has a personal connection to the situation. He believes that the Chargers didn’t provide a fair opportunity for Anthony Lynn, the previous head coach, to succeed with the team. As such, Johnson firmly believes it’s time for the Chargers to make a change at the head coaching position.
The question now is whether the Chargers will heed Johnson’s call and make a decisive move regarding their head coach. The NFL world will be watching closely to see how the situation unfolds.
