    I could annihilate every one of his so called "facts" in one post.
    The short-sided insight he gives is no deeper than the paper its written on.

    1 - Ok thats true
    2 - Yeah i mean he only took over a depleted 4-12 team and in 3 years had then over .500
    3 - Take out the raiders years and its around .450, right around what bilichick before NE
    4 - Is that why his '99 redskins had the #2 offense in the NFL with a 4000 yard passer (brad Johnson), a 1400 yard RB (stephen davis) and 2 1100 yard WR (connell and westbrook)
    5 - Is that why hes regarded as the the best Qb coach in the NFL?
    7 - The redskins firing was BS because Snyder has a steinbrenner syndrome, adn the raiders job was a no-win situation. No coach would of won there at that time

    Wouldn't number 1 be true even if Marty were returning? how is that a black mark on Turner?

    True or false who gives a fuc?

    Until we win the Super Bowl, we will not and do not deserve any respect from the media so screw them.

    All the mo-fo's who have been rooting for this pig need to be vindicated.....like now.

    #1 - drrrrrr, no kidding its gonna be tough to go 14-2 again.

    #2- This is totally circumstantial. The Raiders just lost their only hope at QB, and the Redskins wernt that good to begin with.

    #3- Yep, with teams that sucked before he got there.

    #4- Thats good, because he's a glorified OC here. He takes no authority over what Cottrell does with the defense. (according to LT.)

    #5- This is a flat out lie, the 49rs were not run, run, run, last year. Norv has come a long way from Ricky Williams and Stephen Davis.

    #7- Again totally circumstantial. A team that lost their QB and was completely out of money struggled??? OH WOW! Who'd have thunk it?

    Yes, but it's also slightly skewed. Saying that Norv is a "run, run, run coach" ignores the fact that he has not coached very good QBs for much of his career. In 2001, the Chargers were a mediocre team trying to build. Doug Flutie was not lighting the world on fire, so they relied on LT alot. In Miami, Fiedler was Norv's QB. I would have ran Ricky a buttload, too. Last year, Alex Smith was who Norv had to work with, hardly a Pro Bowl caliber QB.

    As far as dissing Norv because Alex Smith was the 25th rated QB last season, the writer seems to ignore the fact that Alex had one of the worst statistical seasons in NFL history the year before Norv got there. Making Smith the 25th rated QB was a monumental feat.

    Notice:

    I had nothing to do with the writing of this article!

    Also I agree with Trumpie, true or false who gives a fruck! The future hasnt been written, and Turner has never had LT, Gates, Rivers, Williams, Castillo, Olshansky, Cromartie, and Merriman.

    Question of the Evening-Quick, how many teams have ever had back to back 14-2 seasons?

    I'm guessing chargers go undefeated and win the super bowl by the biggest margin ever. Could be the greatest team ever.:yes:

    Which it could be. THis chargers team is stacked from stem to stern. Only injuries can slow it down.

    No it is not. That is a point a lot of people forget. ANY GIVEN SUNDAY! One odd bounce, one misque, momentum swings. They have to be focused all the time, but still there is a chance of something going wrong. That is why they play the game.

    Dont sit back and expect to be hoisting trophies because our Madden numbers rock.:no:

    last season alot of folks were all worried we wouldn't win but 8 games.

    There is no reason this chargers team can't win every game. Only thing standing in the way of this team being one of the greatest teams ever is injuries..:yes:

    But they aren't just going to hand us our wins. Gonna be a battle.

    The Chargers will not go 14-2 !!!

    Wow that is a bold prediction. Bottom line is winning in the playoffs and going to and winning the Super Bowl. The Chargers were the best team in football last year but they did not get a ring to prove that was the case.

    They still were the best team , the Pats did not beat the Bolts the Bolts beat the Bolts. Turner has the Super Bowl experience and the key players are one year wiser which makes them a better team and with just a little luck we should see a better out come in the playoffs.

    Screw 14-2 or 11-5 it is what you do in the playoffs that counts.

    I agree that there's no reason we can't win every game, but our schedule has some tough opponents. Game 1 & 2. Bears, then Patriots. Colts, Ravens, & Donkeys could also be tough games. That said my prediction is 14-2.

    Come playoff time every team is 0-0 again. Norv has playoff experience that will help this team make it much further than last year - hopefully all the way to AZ!!

    I'm behind Norv & Co. 'cuz I'm behind the Bolts. :bolt:

    I took a little time off . It looks like I can drop by and post a line or two on the Chargers and not be hassled by a couple of people who seem to enjoy that sort of thing.

    Always good to read your post and the vast majority of folks here.

    Yes it does, hateful emails, posts, replies, etc can be considered harassment (same as calling) and breaking the restraining order.
