    Jim Harbaugh. I'm dead serious. At least he has some fire. More fire than Norv will ever have!

    NOrv looks like a man who has been castrated for years!

    I get the coaching pedigree Harbaugh has, but the success rate of college coaches in the NFL is drastically poor. I'd take Harbaugh over Gruden because at least Harbaugh leaves some mystery - with Gruden I know exactly what I'm getting and that's a slightly more animated Norv who can't make 2nd half adjustments.

    "Fire" is overrated. Or at least the big, verbose drill-sergeant fire that most people seem to want. Bear Bryant had fire. Paul Brown had fire. But neither was in your face. Great current example. Mike Tomlin. The guy has a ton of fire but it just isn't worn on his sleeve for all the world to see. Rex Ryan has "fire," that doesn't make him a great coach.

    I would love it if we hire Jim Harbaugh.

    Unfortunately, I have the sinking feeling we're stuck with N:confused:rv.

    Unless he resigns or the team is sold, I agree. No way Dean will buy out the $7-10 mil remaining on Norv's contract

    Totally agree.

    Maybe Norv will do us all a favor and just resign.

    How can Spanos maintain the status quo after a dismal season like this? Seriously.

    I'd be happy if norv just steps down as head coach to become offensive coach and make Rivera head coach. What the chargers have needed the last couple years is a coach that will kick them in the pants. And RIvera could probably do that.

    He made a profit, and that is all he cares about. So why spend $7-10 mil on a new coach when the current one isn't losing you money, especially when winning a SB isn't the priority

    Because he has done it with the defense? Not really. We need a complete fresh start with the coaching staff. Every single one should be fired

    As much as I like Rivera. I have to agree with this. Fresh start is what we need.

    Why give this any thought ?

    I highly doubt Alex or Dean are worried. They are focused on maximizing the sale price of the team. The new owner has to worry about what is left as the old regime so why worry about the status quo ? Seriously. Why worry ?

    The butt-hurt here is almost too painful to watch.

    What did you guys expect after the BS drafts that we've had the past few years? Combine that with damn few notable FA acquisitions & virtually no attention paid to beefing up this D, you get this type of scenario.

    Wake up - there's no Santa Claus either.

    Put just a good enough product on the field to sell tickets. Get just enough blackout situations to place blame on lack of fan support. Ask for public monies for a new stadium when the entire country is hurting, then blame the local gov't & fans for not helping the poor rich **** owners more to build a new stadium.

    Meanwhile, the sun is coming up, bills are in the mail, I have clients to call, & the vast majority of people who died yesterday are mostly collateral damage in BS wars. :mad:

    War & the prison industry still pay quite well. I hear that there may be some uptick in moving truck rentals in the San Diego area soon as well.

    Beep beep beep ....
