    If Gilbride could do that, 100% of the NFL world would have to eat their words... So what?

    I haven't ignored any facts. Despite of his past... look what he has to work with now!!! LT did the coaching. Not Norv!!

    Anyone who disagrees with him is a butt sniffer, yet if someone agrees with him he can't wait to organize a circle jerk.

    No LT did the speech, Norv and the other coaches did the coaching. Again ignoring the facts.

    Norv is 3-2 in the playoffs, better than Marty. You always say the end result is what matters. I'd say 3-2 in the playoffs is better than 0-2, and Norv didn't have a 14-2 team with a record breaking LT that was running all over defenses at will.

    People bash Norv for going 8-8 because the team was 14-2 a few years back but ignore the year before that they were 9-7, with pretty much the same team.

    I'm not declaring Norv coach of the year or best coach ever, but he's done pretty much the same as Marty did except Norv has actually won playoff games.

    And that was the entire reason we made it to the playoffs.
    After the speech, we started winning!!

    Responding not to you, but to the Sky is Falling Crew...

    Every year teams all over the NFL have players only meetings, or some locker room leader gets up and says something to the team. It happens all the time. Yet to hear the Sky is Falling Crew tell it, it only happens here, and means the coach is a figurehead and the players are coaching themselves.

    I continue to be astonished at how clueless some posters here are, and how they will take anything that they THINK suits their tinfoil hat view of the organization and run with it.

    ??

    No the reason was because we played better than the other teams and scored more points. Also doesn't hurt getting to play the Raiders.

    Oh yea because the speech was the reason we got so lucky, the speech was the reason we were able to score 18 points (?) in the 4th quarter against KC, the speech was the reason we recovered the onside kick and the speech was the reason KC missed that last second fg.

    **** if all it took was a speech then why not give it at the start of the season and go 16-0?

    Same here.

    He's done nothing since that year to make me think that he would take us any further than Norv has. :no:

    Hmm looks like Gruden is a "turncoat" according to one of his players, and he wouldn't be the first to say or thing that (McCardell).

    Although that was only one player's opinion others said something else.

    Spell check: B4L

    You and others here have a major BOLTS4LIFE obsession. You've been denying it but like you just said "look at this forum."
    I'm sure your family knows about me too. I'm the topic of discussion though out your household. Aren't I?

    That goes for the rest of the Village People in here too and the new meat that you guys recently brought into your circle.
    You guys post wayyyyyyy more about me than the Chargers.

    Keep telling yourself that.

    I'm pretty sure most people here couldn't give two shits whether you ever post another word. In fact, the forum would probably be much more enjoyable not having to wade through your endless repetition of the same two or three themes.

    To be clear, I have absolutely no beef with you other than your **** being old and tired.

    No need to. Look at how often they post about me as compared to how often the post about the Chargers.

    You're so boring, boring, boring!!!!

    Marty is 5-13 (27.8%) in the playoffs, not 0-2. So he has actually won a playoff game.

    Marty was head coach 21 seasons and made the playoffs 13 of those seasons (61.9%).

    Marty's record is 200-126-1 which is 74 games above .500

    Norv is 4-3 (57.1%) in the playoffs.

    Norv was head coach 11 seasons and made the playoffs 3 of those seasons (27.3%).

    Norv's record is 77-95-1 which is 18 below above .500

    If "boring" is a euphemism for "not a complete tool" I'm happy to be boring.

    I know that, I was using their playoff records with the Chargers since that is really the only time they've had comparable teams.

    The other time they had comparable teams was with the Redskins, Norv went 7-6 (before getting fired, team finished 8-8) Marty went 8-8 the next year.
