#149 Compas Fernando Ramirez & Gilbert Manzano Talking Chargers
The Compas on the Beat – aka Fernando Ramirez and Gilbert Manzano – have been covering the LA Chargers for a few seasons, and join Familia FFB to give a look at how some of the key skill players could perform in 2021. How big a step forward does Justin Herbert take? Will he get a haircut? Austin Ekeler could jump into that Alvin Kamara role in the new offense. Mike Williams is filling an important position on the offense, while Keenan Allen's greatness may actually make him underrated. Down in the trenches, the Compas talk about how the new faces on the O-line could help Herbert take that next step with less pressure. They also share a little about how their podcast, Compas on the Beat, got its origin. Make sure to subscribe to Compas on the Beat on YouTube or wherever you get your podcasts. You don't want to miss the taco talk at the end. Salud! Twitter: @GManzano24 / @RealFRamirez / @jorgemartin17 / @FamiliaFFB

Los primos quickly reacted after the epic first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. We had 7 offensive players get picked before a defender.
