    Kevin Accee told Daren Smith that Norv would get a long contract extension soon.

    Who has the exploding head gif?

    fine.


    more pressure to coach our team to a SB title.

    anything less and they buy out the contract and move on.


    flame away

    :yes:

    Depending on who we are able to resign, we could be a very different team next season, that could change even the most ardent supporter's/detractor's opinion of Norval Turner...

    I hate when things are that up in the air.

    Still 6 weeks of football left in the regular season and LOTS of roster movement coming up this offseason.

    I'm with you Conc - need to wait and see how it all shakes out before I decide how much a like or dislike a long-term contract. I will say tho, that having Norv/PR as a team for the indefinitely future doesn't bother me a bit. He's the freaking QB whisperer~

    Yeah, I think a lot of people over look that aspect of this.

    right now Norv looks like the right coach for this team, players praise the fact that he stays the course and doesn't flinch when face with adversity.

    those firey coaches (Ryan, Singletarry, et.) we wanted aren't looking to good right now.

    Having said that, I'd rather see some extensions for guys like VJ, McNeill and Merriman

    Fortunately, the coaching contracts aren't part of the salary cap. :tup:

    Interesting, but I do not think we will see anything on this until the end of the season.

    This thread will self destruct in 3 days....

    I hope nothing happens until the season is over, it's way to early to give out extensions.

    have to agree with those that don't want an extension untill the end of the season

    what's the rush? with so many experienced candidates is not like Norv is a hot comodity, he ain't going nowhere so let's wait till the end of the season and evaluate him then

    And the misuse of offensive talent.
    And the finesse style.
    And never scoring at the end of the first half.


    I don't care if we are 7-3 right now, I hate Norv Turner, and I think we'd have great coaches lining up at Spanos' office door to work for the Chargers.

    I'd rather they wait until after the season before making this decision...

    And now Spanos can't argue with 7-3.

    I'll believe it to some degree when I see it - not when Acee just mentions it offhandedly. And yeah I'd wait til the end of the year

    San Diego also had bad starts with Marty as well. Look at the first 4 games of 2004 and 2005. 2-2 each time.

    It's not the coach, it's not the starting QB, it's just who we are.

    The slow starts suck, but I'd rather sart slow than end slow.

    Not really in 2006 though. 04-05 we weren't exactly the team we are today

    Yeah, but the team has had 3 slow starts under Marty, and 3 slow starts under Norv.

    It's not the HC. Drew started off slow his last 3 seasons with us and is now ripping it up in New Orleans. Rivers is our guy, but even he couldn't prevent 1-3, 2-2, and 2-2 but is undefeated in December. It's not the QB then. We've also gone through a bunch of different players since 2003. Also a bunch of different assistant coaches. Same slow start results 6 of the last 7 years.

    It's just "our" personality. That's why I usually predict the Bolts to go 2-2 in our first 4 games. It's frequently right.

    If the Bolts start 2-2 again next season (likely based on history), I'm not going to whine and moan about it, or obsess about it.

    I love it. give Norv a 5 year extension and watch all the heads explode. :tup::lol:

    I think I posted something about this a day or two ago. :abq2::abq1: More Norv.
