SAN DIEGO (KUSI) - The former NFL executive, who's the point-man for the proposed Chargers move to Los Angeles, is talking big about the advantages of building a new stadium with the Raiders in Carson.

Carmen Policy was the guest Monday at a lunchtime forum in L.A. and said both California teams are ready to go.

Appearing before the Los Angeles sports council, Policy slathered on the praise for the $1.7 billion Carson Stadium Project.

Reprising the presentation he gave to the NFL team owners in Chicago last week, the man hired by the Chargers and the Raiders to push the Carson project said moving the teams to L.A. county creates a huge Southern California mega-market.

He said the Carson proposal is the best location and is the best decision to bring football back to the L.A. Market. 

Policy said the 168 acre site is in his words a, "super Bowl Nirvana," uniquely suited for Super Bowls in the future.

Policy argues that the NFL kills two birds with one stone, by moving two California teams with the most dilapidated stadiums into a brand new site, while keeping them in the Golden State.

Police is so confident that the plan will get approval, that he's predicting the teams will be playing in Carson for the 2019 season.
