SV Thick Cut Pork Chops

Thick cut pork chops may be the greatest thing you can do in a combined SV Egg cook.  Unfortunately, this cook didn't come out so great.

Did some SV pork chops on Sunday.  145 for 1hr, 20minutes.  Based on some time constraints, I wasn't able to finish these on the egg until this evening.  I took them out of the SV and immediately put them back in the fridge in the same SV bags on Sunday night.  Tonight, I took them out and cooked them on a 400 dome temp grill at fire ring height.  2-3 mins per side. 

They tasted fine but were a tougher texture than expected.  Every other time I did these, it was at 140 for right at an hour.  Relatively same egg execution, but 400 may have been higher than previous cooks. 

Question:  could 145 at 1:20 make that much of a difference in texture?  Could it be the time on the egg COMBINED with the SV stats make it tougher?  Or could it just be not such a great cut of meat.

Thanks for your input.
