    I think the ultimate judge of weather the Charger Execs did a good job with this situation is if our coaching staff imporved. So in your opinion did out top 3 get better or worse?

    Before:

    HC: Marty
    DC: Wade
    OC: Cam

    After:

    HC: Turner
    DC: Cotrell
    OC: Shelmon

    Man, only time will tell. After the combine, after free agency, after the draft, after minicamps, after preseason, then things will get real. Any answer now will only be an uneducated guess.

    Have faith in the players and the ability of the coaching staff to gel into a winning unit.

    Can't vote on this one until I see what happens in the next number of months.

    I agree it would be a guess, but not uneducated.

    It should read more factual:

    HC AJ Smith
    OC Norv Turner
    DC Ted Cotrell

    This hiring sucks. I need a day to get over it and get back on board with our "In AJ We Trust" mantra.

    The only thing that I like about it is not changing anything for the development of Rivers.

    This hire is pretty much sickening to me, and I am with BOLTS4LIFE in that I am embarrassed.

    I'm just glad the old german is gone. He was undermining the chargers for lord knows how long. Lousy game coaching. Lousy pep talks. The gleam men the gleam. Please who ever bought into that.

    Marty meant well. But he was pulling the team down. Hopefully these new brains will wake up the young players to do their best instead of holding them back.

    "Marty meant well. But he was pulling the team down"

    Success really sucks. 14 and 2. Can't win the big one was hung on a lot of players and coaches until they were given the time and opportunity to actually win the big one because it was their time.

    I'm ready to move forward in a positive way, but still think the Marty firing was insane. Legally insane.

    Man, how'd you like to be the Raiders right about now!

    :icon_tease: :lol:

    It amazes me that with Rivera out of a job and rex in our grasp we couldn't have scooped both those coaches up and had an unstoppable deffense... maybe to many cooks in the yard, but man their talent and track records are undeniable... then you look at Norv turner, he has a losing record... A LOSING RECORD. jesus. I don't know how many more seasons I can put up with this. if we don't make it deep into the playoffs I'm switching to the niners.

    Cam>>>Shelmon
    Marty>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Turner
    Hell, even Cam>>>>Norv
