    It was interesting and extremely accurate!!!!

    "Norv is trying to credit himself to make this win a turning point but the players know better. They stole one.
    Norv is suppose to be the "Offensive Guru" but has turned LT into and average running back and has made Phillip Rivers horrible.
    They were an elite team. They still have elite players but are not an elite team.
    Marty might not have won in the playoffs but the way they are going, they'll have no playoffs to worry about. The organization tried to fix something that wasn't broken."


    Then it was ALL about questioning how bad off the Ponies are.

    How is this accurate!? Rome talking out of his *** again. The fact of the matter was that Marty forced the Chargers hand. Besides the fact that the Chargers are in 1st place at the moment.

    Some say "Marty fired himself."
    In some ways, I agree with that point.
    It starts with him turning down the one year extension.

    So Wade and Norv would have been gone.
    What AJ and Dean should have done is let Marty pick his assistant coaches and if we don't finish better, let him walk in 2008!!!
    It might not have been popular with the fans but it would have been A LOT less damaging to the future of this great era!!!

    To say that Norv is better than Marty is flat out stupid!!!
    If you're confused.. compare both coaches resumes!!!

    To say we're in a better situation that last season is flat out retarded!!!

    To not realize the danger of an extremely promising era being destroyed beyond repair is just flat out denial!!!!

    Disagree with me... that's OK. You're Wrong!!!!

    Marty fired himself? Well, they sure didn't extend an open welcome with the crap contract they offered. Not trying to rock the boat, just sayin'.

    VERY GOOD OBSERVANCE!!! :yes:
    A point that nobody else brought up.

    I think most posters were so Hell bent on their hate for Marty that they had a mentality of "Daffy Duck could get this team a Super Bowl title."
    Well, that's basically what they got and it's not working!!!! :no:

    I would say that most on this board didn't want Norv as a coach. And I would say that most would probably agree that he shouldn't be coach now .. And I don't want to get into this thing with you again as you latch on to anything anti-Norv.

    I'm just saying that Rome is running his mouth again and is misinformed about that coaching situation such as it was back when Marty was ultimately fired.

    Where is Jim Everett when you need him. :icon_shrug: :icon_huh:

    Oh So True!!!!!
    Marty has never had a team he couldn't turn around, so most should have little doubt we would have a the very least, had a tough team that would go toe to toe with ANY TEAM.
    I would think any fan who wanted this team to stay tough, and be respected throughout the league would have been ok with your idea...but then, there are the "others" (to put it nicely)

    Running his mouth but the fact is that AJ and Dean could have handled this better.

    ONE THING FOR SURE... NO LEGITIMATE COACH WILL COME HERE IF THEY AREN'T ALLOWED TO CHOOSE THEIR ASSISTANT COACHES!!!
    SO AJ BETTER STOP WITH THE FUKING EGO RIGHT NOW!!!

    I think it's the people in here that think Marty fired himself that are misinformed...all seem to be AJ arse kissers that don't remember his idiocy...I think it's called revisionist history, there's allot of that going around in this country right now.

    So let me make sure I understand this correctly...
    These others are happy with going from "tough and respected" to "weak and molested?" :icon_shrug: :icon_huh:

    To say that Marty isn't to blame for any of what happened is just wrong. AJ/Marty didn't get along. Documented fact. They butted heads. This was a mutual divorce in my opinion.

    Again...
    What legitmate head coach is going to come to a team where he is not allowed to choose his assistant coaches?
    Much rather, a place where he has to kiss the GM's ***!!!!

    Our entire coaching staff are just those who were willing to crawl up AJ's *** and die while AJ coaches the team!!!

    Well it helps when that "legitimate" coach picks "legitimate" assistants. No employer is going to allow a coach hire all his coaches without some input. Especially when it is all in the family type of actions.

    When Marty goes to AJ not once but twice and tries to work it out! and the clown won't be a man and talk about it, then that's on no one but the butt head who won't talk...he acted like a little child. "Your not my pick for HC, so I'm going to make things as miserable as I can"...WAAAAAAHHHHH

    Sorry, but this mess is on no one but "the Ego"...

    What ever. One thing for sure... it would have worked out better than this AJ experiment!!! At the very minimum, it would have been another year of post season experience and the table would be set for a new head coach!!!

    If AJ doesn't drop the ego, we'll just have another group of *** clowns for our coaching staff next season and players will start asking to be traded.
    Why don't you get this?

    I don't know what else I can say .. I acknowledged that there was an obvious problem between AJ and Marty. Honestly, I don't think that anyone knows the entire story and no one ever will .. You can read and make up **** as much as you want but that is it.

    If you want to make it more than that, have at it .. It's what you do.

    Get off this line of Bull, there is only one fact that matters to ANY OF US...HOW MUCH DO YOU WIN???
    Do you think Marty is going to hire coaches who don't give him the best chance to win...he hasn't anywhere he's gone.
    He won't at his next job either.

    Huh?

    Why don't you go listen to both Norv's postgame and Monday presser interviews. Post Norv's quotes, and not the muckraking and amateurish takes of an overgrown teenager like Jim Rome.

    It's good to know that you've put your Marty knee pads back on ....

    Shammy, come out of the closet already!!!
    Someone who is this compulsively obsessed with homosexuality obviously has issues and tendencies of their own!!!


    Anyway, I did listen to Norv's post game interviews.
    Is there something I should find inspirational about it?!!! :icon_shrug:

    I'm not a Rome fan either but ONLY people like you are still riding that "We're so much better off without Marty" band wagon!!!!
    We are in serious danger of the most promising era in Chargers history getting damaged beyond repair and that's 100% Fact!!

    Get with the real world!!!

    I have no interest in Marty, he was a good coach, but I had no problem with the firing, the problem was with who they hired. :no:

    I didn't say Norv sucks in this thread.
    I just pointed out that he dose.


    Though I suppose you're going to do what you can to get this thread closed and then call me immature.

    Go to it!!!
    GET YOUR JOLLYS!!! :rolleyes2:

    Can I send you IMs and start throwing temper tantrums afterwords?
    Why Not? I'm not as good as you? :icon_shrug:

    Unfortunately... that's what happened!!!! :icon_evil:
