    The guy who took over Jimmy Johnson's Cowboys, won a SB, then drove the team into the ground within 3 years. Norv is just another example of a Coach who took over a great team, and where the team wins in spite of a terrible coach. Switzer is looked at as one of the worst SB winning head coaches in NFL history

    WOW nice comparison

    When will everyone else learn, that Norvs success here in San Diego was due to him inheriting Marty's team?

    As players from martys era move on, and the current regime slowly makes their mark..this team is getting worse and worse until we don't make the playoffs anymore.

    Hmmm...A potential top 10 draft pick and no Norv?....tempting, very tempting...:drool:

    Maybe its worth sacrificing a season to get rid of the anti-christ? I don't know if I can live with another 10 games like this one though, we at least have to beat the Raiders, Chiefs, and sweep the Broncos, then its a semi-acceptable 6-10.

    Are you confident that AJ will get quality players with a top 10 pick? His drafts have been questionable at best since Buddy Nix left the org. When he was here, we hit on nearly every player we drafted. Now..... well...... not quite as good

    Rule of percentages...sooner or later your bound to get one right, even if by accident. :lol:

    Although I think AJ already nailed one with Mathews, dude is for real, we've just been playing from behind in 4 of our 6 games. Spotting STL 17pts today, and allowing them to keep converting 3rd downs in the 2nd half kinda forced Norvs hand.

    It was actually his 2nd year that he won the SB, but you are right, he won a SB, something NOrv will never do

    I wish they were one in the same.

    Switzer has a super bowl ring.

    I agree that excitement over draft picks should be tempered with AJ's draft record.

    I'm much more comfortable with draft picks in the hands of AJ Smith then those players in the hands of Norv Turner

    I know it's hard to tell because of how much I defend him against the more over-zealous haters but my opinion on AJ has actually tempered over the past couple years.

    I don;t think anyone can question the fact that his drafts and undrafted player signing haven't been any where near the same level as they were when Buddy Nix was the Scouting Director
