Chargers OTAs News: Red zone scoring the focus in OTAs' second week

In today's Chargers news bulletin, the San Diego Chargers have identified a key area for improvement during the second week of the team's offseason training activities - red zone scoring efficiency.

Per Ricky Henne of, "the San Diego Chargers emphasized red zone efficiency Monday when they returned for their fourth of 10 OTA sessions."

Head coach Mike McCoy spoke of the importance of buckling down when it comes to the team's work inside the 20.

“We turned to the red area (today),” said McCoy, via Henne's article posted on Monday.  “That’s an area that we need to improve from last year.  (There’s) a lot emphasis by the coaching staff, on offense and defense, on improving (in the red area). It wasn’t a bad start today, but we’ve got a long ways to go.”

Second-year wide receiver Keenan Allen also spoke on what it takes to improve from a red zone efficiency standpoint.

“What it really comes down to in the red zone is who wants it more,” said Allen. “You’ve got to have a lot of discipline, but you really need to have the attitude that no matter what, you are going to make a play. So it was good to practice that a lot today, especially coming off last year when we didn’t do as well as we wanted to."

"It’s something we have to get better at.”
