Acee: Right team, right time for Norv Turner?Maybe Norv Turner has found the team he can lead to that place so many of you don’t think he’s capable of going.I have been waiting a long time for the Chargers to have a mature team – one that could back up its words and respond rightly to Turner’s words.Admittedly, I’m Turner’s most unabashed public supporter this side of Troy Aikman. But I believe I know the man’s limitations, and I have said since the day he was hired that he’ll do best with a certain kind of group to turn his message into sustained success.Maybe, just maybe, this is that team.“Norv pretty much ripped our (rear ends) early in the week,” linebacker Takeo Spikes said on Sunday, after the Chargers bounced back from the previous week’s embarrassment to handle the Kansas City Chiefs. “We accepted the coaching … then the players, we kind of challenged each other.”It’s only four games in, the first quarter of the season complete. If you’ve been around this town for any length of time, paying attention to the Chargers, having your hopes raised and then razed, you must remain in a state of wait-and-see.But consider the progression Spikes described.Turner voices his displeasure in no uncertain terms, the players absorb his message constructively and in turn go about changing their results.What a concept.“He just treats us like grown men,” tight end Randy McMichael said. “You should act like grown men.”Sure. But, let’s face it, not every grown man acts like one – and certainly not in an NFL locker room. The Chargers have had their share of those the past few years. They’ve largely been weeded out and replaced with guys who not only are accountable to the team but demand others be as well.“Nowadays, younger players come in like there’s an entitlement,” said McMichael, who is in his 11th season. “… We’re not going to stand for it. Stuff happens, but not on our watch.”I assure you that Turner has been a big part of the culture change. His curfew was immediately more strict than his predecessor’s. He deals privately with those that run afoul of the rules, as well as proactively (and always privately) advising players.The group known loosely as the Gaslamp Gang for their preference to spend Friday nights downtown has largely been sent packing. A.J. Smith isn’t the only reason.He can be the hard guy, but he’s better mixing counselor and friend with offensive mastermind.He doesn’t sacrifice players publicly, most recently evidenced by his treatment of Ryan Mathews. He told Mathews last Wednesday he wouldn’t start Sunday, but it was kept quiet. Turner also told Mathews he bore some blame for running him so much in the first quarter of his first game after being sidelined for six weeks. And after Sunday’s game, Turner praised Mathews profusely and has deliberately declined to acknowledge a lack of trust in the young running back.In Monday’s team meeting, Turner did something he does frequently. He told the team he’d erred in his play calling at certain times in Kansas City. He demands precision from the players and is critical of himself and his staff when the players are not put in the best position to succeed.That criticism remains in-house.There, a group of veterans and like-minded young players respond.“It’s a good mix with Norv’s personality,” Spikes said.He recalled playing for the similarly-wired Dick LeBeau in Cincinnati early in his career. Players loved LeBeau, respected him, couldn’t quite get it together to win enough to save his job.“We were not able to create success,” Spikes said, “because we didn’t have enough veteran leadership on the team. I always said if I got that opportunity again to play for a coach like that, I’d never let that happen again.”Yep. Maybe this time.
