    Some people are saying he's already a success. I have to disagree.

    Tell me... what would he have to accomplish to make him a success in your eyes? YOUR'S!!!

    I know how much they loved him.

    I lived in Woodbridge, Va when he was the Redskins head coach.

    I was just trying to ensure that you stay consistent, otherwise your arguments look weak.

    Winning record, Hopefully a Superbowl or two. I am not dictating what he has to do.

    See based on your arguments, you see Bobby Ross as a failure. I mean he didnt win 2 superbowls. His team started 0-4.

    Just admit that you will never like Norv, then create a hate Nov thread and leave your venom there.

    Apples and Oranges...
    It had been a decade since we saw a winning team. Ross had a bunch of rookies and no names that he had to make into a team.
    Eventually he developed the rookies and no names into impact players and a team.

    The team we have now is 10 times the team we had then and NO developing is/was needed.

    You need to work on your comparisons!!!

    Just because others don't go to the same lengths to excoriate Norv, that doesn't mean they have a "man-crush" on him.

    MOST people on this forum understand that there is more to winning or losing than just who the coach is. The coach has his job, we all know that, but players still have to play. And when I see a bunch of players who are supposed to be the most talented roster in the NFL playing like dogshit, I will put it on them. What the f*ck is Norv supposed to do to make people make a freaking tackle when they are supposed to? Or not get dominated at the line of scrimmage.

    Look, I stated long ago that I was not a big Norv fan, I wasn't in favor of his hiring. I told my friend the Raider fan that I wanted to see Rex Ryan coaching our team, but that they would probably hire Norv just to piss me off. But after it was apparent that he was our coach, and he wasn't going anywhere, I just shut up about it. I give the guy his due. He took this team to the AFC Championship game, and I am convinced that if LT, Gates and Rivers are anywhere within spitting distance of 100%, we win that game.

    I think most fans aren't thrilled with Norv, but are giving him a chance. You just like to rail on and on about Norv, we all get that. As I stated before, on some level, I think you want him to faill because you seem to get a nut over saying "I told you so."

    Well he has the same players he had last season, so what's his excuse this season? I don't believe that ALL the players can break down and not function anymore.

    What ever he's doing now, he's doing it wrong. Cause right now, the only team worse that us in the Chiefs.
    If the same team shows up when we play the Raiders again, we won't win.
    Hell, the Rams might have a shot at beating us.

    Whatever you say. I was so happy to be headed home from Jacksonville after a team loss. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    I thought I already did, but I guess I need to spell it out.

    That record includes his tenure with the Raiders.

    And then I pointed out that he was 49–59–1 with the Skins.
    That's below average.

    And that was the point in which I explained that my initial response was just to keep you from being inconsistent.

    Do you want to keep talking in circles?

    So, these players who were good enough to make their high school team, and then good enough to get onto a college squad, and then good enough to either get drafted or signed as free agents, these players have suddenly forgotten how to execute fundamentals because Norv Turner is coaching them?

    Beyond the fact that you have posted the same **** incessantly, the thing that undermines your credibility is that I don't recall any posts made by you calling out anyone other than Norv. You have also stated that the current state of affairs with the Chargers is 100% on Norv.

    If you TRULY believe that, than I think that speaks volumes, and nothing anybody says is going to sink in. :no:

    I now see where you're getting... ALL coaches are awesome!!!
    We should have never got rid of Glibride. His coaching had absolutely nothing to do with the team playing horrible.

    He's great just like the rest of them.

    Got ya but don't agree with ya!!!

    If you correct yourself, there is no inconsistency.




    How about this?
    You're right... Norv's doing a fantastic job. The problem is our cheap a** franchise that won't supply him with enough talent!!!
    LT may have broke the all time TD record but he didn't break his own record. He sucks!!!
    Rivers only made one Pro Bowl in two seasons. He sucks!!!

    It's not Norv's fault that ALL of our players suck!!!!

    Dude, you are just a complete idiot. You don't read a f*cking word that anyone posts, you just read a word or two, then post some asinine response that doesn't actually respond to what the other person said. You spin what people actually say into what you want to respond to, putting words into people's mouths, engaging in ridiculous hyperbole.

    I have seen the light. There really is absolutely no reason to respond to anything you say. You are so firmly entrenched in your "100% of everything is Norv's fault" mindset, you can't see or hear anything else. I'll spend my time talking to people who actually have some idea of what football is about.

    Your "Strategy of Idiocy" is brilliant. I give up, you win!

    Who's saying Norv's doing a fatastic job?

    The only counter arguments I'm reading (which is admitingly not all of them) are simply saying Norv is not the only one to blame, as you would like to suggest.

    Who do you blame for lack of preparation to start?
    Lack of leadership?

    I'm not saying Norv doesn't share any of the blame, I'm just saying he doesn't bare all of the blame.

    It's not a black and white thing. Just because people don't want to jump on your "FIRE NORV!!11!11!!!11!!!!!!111!1!1!!!one!!11!" crusade just yet doesn't mean they think he's the best NFL head coach since Vince Lombardi.
