    Everybody who knows anything about NFL knows he's a joke but he gets all the man love he can handle in here.

    Though not by me.

    What you continue to fail to grasp is that just because people don't want to get into your "Norv is the Devil" conga line and turn every thread into a discussion of how Norv is to blame for everything that is wrong with the Chargers doesn't necessarily mean that they like the guy or think he's one of the greatest coaches in the NFL.

    I challenge you to find one post by someone not named BFISA that's singing Norv's praises.

    And by singing his praises, I don't mean counter-arguments informing you that perhaps others share some of the blame of what's going wrong.

    I mean posts proclaiming him to be a great head coach.

    edit: Claiming "support" of Norv doesn't count, either.

    As far as the link goes, we had the same record this time last year.

    Hate for Ted is all over the place.
    I don't understand why. The defense did their job on Sunday. I don't care how many yards they gave up. 17 points is 17 points. Easy win!!

    Our offense scored a whopping 10 points and Norv's suppose to be the "Offensive Guru." Nobody seems to have a problem with that.
    IMO, dishing out excuses for his failure is man love. It's anybody's fault but his.
    I guess handsome guys get all the man love, huh? :lol:

    You do know they were playing the Miami Dolphins, right?

    And the only reason it wasn't 24 points (or more) was because the Dolphins "chose" to run out the clock on this defense. They ran out the clock, dude. The closed it out on the defense.

    It is the JOB of the defense to get the offense the ball. That is a fact. With so much time left on the clock, the defense needed to step up at the end... and they didn't. They got worked. Beat up and down the field in the every way.

    The offense was not pretty. But on days where the offense is "off"... the defense must give them more opportunities to score.

    So don't put your blinders on for the fat man just because they only gave up 17 to a mediocre Miami offense. Look beyond the score and you'll see they were a complete joke on Sunday.

    When our offense keeps going 3 and out... the defense is going to get tired.
    Look at all the offensive talent. What excuse is there for all those 3 and out drives?

    Either way... you are NOT going to win on 10 points!!!
    Please make a note of it... you are NOT going to win on 10 points!!!
    What excuse is there for that?

    Why all the excuses for Norv's failure?

    Can you believe that Enormo called him a douche? I weep for our society.

    There is none. I don't think Ted has done anything to help either.
    But the BOTTOM LINE is that the offense lost the game on Sunday.
    Spin it anyway you'd like but again... you are NOT going to win on 10 points!!!


    With that said... how come we can't score anything (literally) in the first half?
    All that talent and the so-called Offensive Guru... what's the excuse?

    It's the nature of the game. When the team does poorly everyone blames the coach but himself and when team does well it's the coach that tries to take all credit. You can't have the praise without the ridicule. And yes, I'm back! The dorm server is finally letting Bolttalk through.

    I'm not excusing anyone. It's obvious the players looked past Miami. There were plenty of guys open on Sunday, but Rivers either missed them or they dropped the ball. The 4th & Goal play is about the only one I layed squarely on Norv.

    Ted has had his players consistently out of position and underperforming in EVERY GAME.

    And you can win on 10 points of offense. Just can't expect to do it every week.

    How often this year has the offense not done their job as compared to how often the defense hasn't?

    Offense: 1
    Defense: 3

    Unfortunately for us the offense picked one of those 2 games the defense decided to show up in to go to sleep.

    ...Norv knows nothing about motivation or preparation. His team shows up the same way every week, except for the Jets game. There may be parity among players but there is a huge gap between coaches, both head and assistants. I adopted the phucker and I can't stand him as a coach. I like him as a person but who gives a rat's *** about that!

    I'm sorry but he just looks like a douche. I didn't mean any offense by it. He may be a very talented very cool person but he just looks like a total douche.

    I wish him the best in life.

    Oh... AC/DC. Yeah, he does rock (not as much as Lemmy though). Still, that picture makes him look like a severe douche.

    RIP Mr. Guy Who Rocks But Looks Like A Douche In That Picture

    That's a sign of poor coaching, just like no preparation!!!! :yes:
    It was more than just the 4th and goal play. The Fins defense ALWAYS knew what was coming... the play calling couldn't have been more predictable!!! Yet it was the same thing(s) over and over.

    In order to win on 10 points of offense, you need a 2000 Ravens type of defense.

    I knew this would be futile banter, but I like to engage in it from time to time anyway.

    Norv loves you. :yes:

    The part where you continue to miss is that we're either behind or shutout in the first half.
    Again... if we continue to be put in a position of digging ourselves out of the hole in the second half, most of the times, you'll come up short. Especially when you're down by at least two scores.

    Why is that so hard to understand? :icon_shrug:

    Your total lack of football knowledge is absolutely astounding. I guess it's Norv's fault he can't change their body clocks, they sure looked asleep to me out there. Oh, excuse me, you are a coaching expert and I am nothing but a mere fan.

    I don't place all the blame on Mr. Turner though I do like the use of Norv as a verb. It is completely applicable in this situation.

    Okay. To be clear - I'm not a die-hard Norv fan. I hate the obsession with running LT up the middle on 1st down, I will always hate it because I like watching LT be LT and do what he does best out in the open field. However, I do understand it.

    This is the NFL. You have to be able to execute. Even when everyone knows what's coming. The Chargers have had much success in the past doing just that. Eventhough my 6 y/o niece knew LT was running up the middle they still made it happen. Something isn't working this year, but it's not 100% on Norv when things don't work. The coaches on staff do have a hand in it - but just as responsible are the players.

    This is a team sport - it's not a one man show - despite the overwhelming attention individual players/coaches may recieve. THE TEAM is responsible for losing last week. THE TEAM is responsible for being unmotivated and unprepared.

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

    You're welcome to your Norv hate, I don't begrudge you of that - but let's get real here...

    Watch out, he's actually a Colt's fan and a self proclaimed expert on everything football. Just ask him.
