Norv Turner's the Man




Christmas came early for Norv Turner this year as he was just handed the biggest gift of his life. On Monday the San Diego Chargers announced they would be giving Norv Turner the head coaching job. Giving is the key word here. I'm not sure what Norv Turner did to earn this job but I'm sure he will somehow succeed in making this team of prolific athletes mediocre. In his previous nine seasons of head coaching he has compiled a 58-82-1 record. One would probably wonder how someone could keep getting hired as a head coach with a record like that. The answer lies no further than team president Dean Spanos:

"You can say whatever you want to say [about hiring Turner]," team president Dean Spanos said. "If we hadn't made a change and we lost, we made the wrong decision. If we do make the change and we lose, we made the wrong decision. So the net result of all this is, there's only one thing we have to do this year, and that's get back in the playoffs. Just get to the postseason and win the first game, is our goal. And then I think we're off to a good start."

I guess that is probably what I would have said if I just hired Norv Turner. Spanos goal of winning one game in the playoffs is probably unlikely but it certainly isn't out of the question. After all, in his nine seasons of head coaching Norv Turner did go to the playoffs once and he did win a game.

How hard can it be to give the ball to LT on the regular and then occasionally throw a tight end dump pass to Antonio Gates. Honestly!

Absolutely Ridiculous that Marty was ever fired in the first place.
