    There is none. People just speculating. I find it funny when people say stuff like that when they've never even talked to Norv or AJ in their life.
    Like AJ being an ego maniac, where did that come from? When I talked to him at Pro Bowl practice a couple years ago, he was fairly down to earth and quite friendly.

    I like the guy. As far as I can tell he has the team's best interest in mind 100% of the time. He knows when he makes mistakes, doesn't mean he has to broadcast it to the world.

    Where's facts that he isn't?
    All this talk about "you don't know what is discussed at the meetings" or "you don't know AJ personally"... well neither do you.

    Speculation... Let's go through this again. The Riders didn't hire Norv because he was Al's first choice. Al hired him because nobody else wanted the job.

    Which brings this to mind... answer this question!!!
    If Norv is such a great coach, than why did the Raiders players quit on him? I know he didn't have a lot of talent to work with BUT if Norv was such a great coach, shouldn't he have had them playing hard (win or lose)?


    Why didn't AJ like Marty? Because Marty wasn't willing to crawl up his a** and die.
    Proof: He didn't get any interviews last season because by March, everybody has their HC. There were a couple teams interested in interviewing him at the end of this season but he's not interested.

    If Norv were fired, think anybody would be interested in interviewing him for a HC position?
    How many people contacted him for a HC position right after the Redskins fired him? How many after the Raiders fired him?


    BOTTOM LINE: If Norv ever talked back to AJ or disagreed with him, his days of HC are over. I can't prove that I'm right but you can't prove me wrong either. Put the puzzle together and it makes complete sense to me.

    Now answer my questions.

    Kiffen had them playing hard, win or lose. So did Cable.
    The players didn't quite on either one of those guys.

    I answered the the best of my ability taking it that "I don't know what is discussed at the meetings or do I know AJ personally," and neither do you.


    Are you going to answer my questions?

    Hey B4L, do you feel that you have made your opinion about Norv clear, o do you need 1000 more posts to do it? :icon_shrug:

    Why don't we judge Norv by what he has done with the Chargers (debatable) not by what he did with other teams (I don't see pats fans jugging Bellichek by what he did with the browns)

    Just to play devil's advocate, because I am neither hostile nor friendly when it comes to Norv Turner, here are some tidbits for you.
    • Turner was the offensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys on Jimmy Johnson's staff when Dallas won back to back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. Turner got much of the credit for not only their success, but for helping shape quarterback Troy Aikman into a Hall of Fame player. However, he also was labeled by some as a problem. After Barry Switzer's firing following the unsuccessful 1997 campaign, QB Troy Aikman made many urgent demands that Turner be named head coach. When Chan Gailey was named coach, Aikman was famously unhappy, stating "They're screwing this team up."
    • On February 19, 2007 Turner was hired to coach the San Diego Chargers. Though he had been a finalist to assume the same position with the Dallas Cowboys, a team for which he had been the Offensive Coordinator during the first two of three Championship seasons in the 1990s, he eventually lost out to Wade Phillips.

    YOU'RE THE ONE PULLING NORV'S STRINGS!!! HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT!!! THE MASTEROFPUPPETS!!!

    I should have known.

    Belichick
    • Yeah, from 1991 until 1995, Belichick was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns. During his tenure in Cleveland he compiled a 36–44 record, leading the team to its most recent playoff game win in 1994. In Belichick's last season in Cleveland the Browns finished 5–11. In November of that year Browns owner Art Modell announced he would move the team to Baltimore after the season. Belichick was fired early in February 1996.

    First off. I was asked a question, so I answered it.

    Another thing... It doesn't make any sense to compare Norv to Bellicheck.

    All good points. If he came here as OC or QB coach, it would have got my approval.

    I see. The old man wants a child's book. So there for, I must prove that Norv Turner is made out of fabric and that AJ owns him.

    So here you go...

    I name this puppet "Norv Turner!!!"
    [​IMG]

    I'll send this image to Chargers.com as a gift to AJ.
    THERE YOU HAVE IT!!! FACTS YOU ASKED FOR!!!


    Oh. Now that I realize you want a baby game... I think AJ Smith is an a**hole. Facts... I'll name my anus "AJ Smith."
    Would you like pictures?!!! :hilarious: :hilarious: :hilarious:

    You want to see my anus!!! :hilarious: :hilarious: :hilarious:

    I guess you will need another 1000 posts :icon_tease:

    I think it's a good comparison since both failed in their previous jobs, I only said that we shouldn't judge Norv on anything else other than by what he has done with this team

    One is continuing to fail. The other excelled!!

    If Norv gets us 3 Super Bowl titles, then this would be a viable comparison!
