    Wanted to throw this out since everyone is in SUCH a good mood

    Norv Turner stays on as head coach next year, even though its obvious the entire team hates his guts. SPanos won't fire him.

    LT and other veterans are infuriated at Norv, they want him out of there now. LT mentioned in the press conference that if the coach won't change then the players will have to. LT can't stand how Norv is using him.

    If Norv is kept around, could LT, Chambers and other veterans demand to be traded from the Chargers? Could they have so little respect for this team and where its heading that the core of talent wants to leave?

    OMG. This is bad.

    We are on the verge of returning to the late 80's and late 90's all over again .:no:

    Not very likely.

    LT could hold out and demand trade, most likely it would end in a tag.

    The closest thing to what you are discussing is a mass 'retirement' of players from the NFL. That will not happen. In the end, money talks, pride walks.

    If they had any pride they'd make Norv "disappear". :icon_twisted:

    He had a chance to support Norv...and danced around it. he didn't bash anyone...but his body language was telling IMO.

    He also said his relationship with LT is "fine"

    I call bullshit.:yes:

    Losing to the Raiders thursday night might just bring this to fruition. Let's hope so. We need this thing to hit bottom so we can focus on the rebound. The quicker it happens... the quicker the recovery will be.

    I'm not saying I want to lose to the Raiders, but I am saying it's a very likely scenario. :icon_eek:

    If the players you listed request to be traded, Norv will be fired. Aj might be too. There is NO WAY Spanos will let those players leave.

    If they play like they did Sunday, it won't be 11 straight over Oakland.

    If they lose, I really don't want to be around the stadium. It will get UGLY.

    The Chargers could lose this game. All in all, this game only counts for pride. Maybe the raiders can rekendle that in this team...

    Or it might be lost.

    People. It's coming. The Chargers will lose Thursday.

    My advice is to steer clear of the stadium altogether.

    Don't sell your tickets. Empty seats send a clear message to ownership that you will not buy the product.

    I'll be watching from the comfort of my own home. I'll try not to puke up my dinner. But it's likely this will be an all field goal game.

    Bolts lose... 12-9.

    Prepare yourselves people.

    Where is Spanos NOW?! He is doing nothing while they get worse every week! They were Superbowl contenders for god sakes! I think Spanos doesn't care cuz if he did, he would have done something by now.

    eh I'd probably prefer a fire norv chant. Otherwise they might think people didn't show because it was a Thursday game. Or some **** like that.

    It's possible.
    I'm just thinking about the last corporate company I worked for. In the beginning, everything was going great and ALL employees were willing to bend over backwards to help the company.
    Then new management took over and people who had been there for 5-10 years were leaving. Including some just quite and walked out with no other job lined up.

    It would be great if they called Spanos bluff. Anyone with a head for football can see Norv is turning the Chargers into the AFC version of the Detroit Lions.

    Norv needs to be fired... after all what does a coach have to do to get fired around here... go 14-2?

    Dead on, Rob. I'm on the ice Thursday night anyway so I'll probably miss the, er, fireworks.

    I'll inspect the carnage Monday morning when I'm back your way...I'll probably see the bonfires burning as I fly into Lindbergh. :yes:

    I'm giving it until the 3rd quarter. If Oakland is within a TD, I'm gone. I'd rather not see it happen and make it home to tuck my kids into bed.

    Yea but we were also 11-5, 14-2, 9-7, 12-4, and 4-12.

    I'd say 4 winning seasons is pretty good. You don't fire him over one bad season, now if they're awful next season as well then he's on the hot seat.

    I think giving him a season to fix up his mess isn't too much to ask for.

    No! Dont you understand! He want Billick who had 5 winning season out of 9 with teh Ravens. You know, the guy who only won his division twice in 9 years!

    That is who he wants. Winning seasons 4 out of 5 years is not what he wants because he like losing, so long as he can play GM in Madden '06...:lol:
