    ...Recently two guys, at the top of their game, made public announcements that indicated they are truly team players. First Suggs stated he would take a home team discount to stay with the Ravens if it meant they could keep their big three LBs intact. Yesterday Larry Fitzgerald offered to restructure his contract if it would free up enough money to help Anquan Boldin stay with Arizona. Larry is at the absolute peak of his game...it says am awful lot about his character, which was already sky high with everyone!

    Those are two players who feel their ball club is capable of great things in the next year or two. They are also two players who's respective coaching staffs feel that they are integral to the success of the team.

    The questions are, "Does LT think the direction Norv is taking the team is a good one? Does LT know that the coaching staff feels he is integral to the teams success?"

    I love Fitzgerald's attitude, when he scores (at least in the NFCCG) you could see he was jumping for joy, not doing a pre-planned celebration

    I like Larry F. He's a Marquee player with a great attitude.

    No. You twisted it. Whisenhunt and Harbaugh are awesome. Just ask the players.

    Ask the players what they think of Norv. Oh... we did.
    Remember Osgood's comments?

    I had a dream...

    LT - Look AJ I will sign this contract only if you get a player that will put us over the top.

    AJ - What do you have in mind LT.

    LT - A KICKER!! :icon_rofl:

    Ask Stephen Cooper and Jaques Cesair. I heard both of them EMPHATICALLY say that Norv was a great coach, live, on the radio. Jaques Cesair actually brought it up himself while in studio with Akbar [a vocal non-fan of Norv] to dispute the negative things that Akbar had been saying about the man.

    So if you want to go with Osgood, who has an agenda, be my guest. But please spare us from using his bitterness as fact.

    Most players are not going to come out and say "our coach is bad," even if they feel that way. That is, unless you're a head case like TO.

    We all know about Osgood's disappointment about not getting any chances at WR but he still plays like a demon on Special Teams. I think he NOW realizes that if he goes elsewhere, he'll probably still play on Special Teams.

    I agree that there are certain parts of Osgood's character that remain questionable but if you're going to tell me that he's the only player on the team that feels that way... I'm NOT buying!!!

    Besides... actions speak louder that words. When you look at the Ravens, Cardinals, Steelers, etc. sidelines. You see passion and the players having full confidence in the leadership of their HC.
    You don't see that on the Chargers side lines. Just a bunch of great athletes trying to figure things out on their own.

    Where exactly are these season tickets of yours? Sounds like obstructed view.... or maybe you're just legally blind hanging out in the upper view? No, no, I know! You don't like to watch with your eyes open.

    You have got to be the most deluded person I have ever "met" :lol:

    And just for the record - I never said you had to buy into the idea that ALL the players love Norvellous. I simply pointed out that your assertion that the entire team doesn't believe in their HC based on Osgood's comments were hardly a fact.

    Plaza 25 (hardly obstructed), 20/20 vision, and I wouldn't spend $1,000 a year to keep my eyes shut for 3 hours. :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure what you're laughing at or why. I guess you see excitement on the Chargers sidelines after we win a big game. So what?
    Here's some examples of how much the Chargers sideline is inspired by Norv...
    I was at the game in Jacksonville last season on the Visiting Side. I watched their bench through the whole game. The players did not want to be there from the start.
    Remember the way the bench look in Kansas City this season? Until the last three minutes, they couldn't have played worse.

    Sure, the bench looked great in the last regular season game against Denver. Cause we beat up a bad team.
    Steelers, Cardinals, Ravens, ect. are always focused, prepared, and upbeat... because their coach makes it that way.

    With that said... I'm sure there are some players that don't agree with Osgood's comments but I'm willing to bet that there are A LOT more that do!!!

    Do you have some way to prove or measure this? You make these asinine statements all the time and you LOVE to uses **** that is impossible to quantify.

    So when our guys appear to be fired up, excited or whatever else, you conveniently ignore that, and then state that everyone else has passion like there's any f*cking way on the planet to know one way of the other.

    Fact is you have a hard on for Norv, so anything you see that feeds that hatred gets registered, and everything else that is contrary to your beliefs is conveniently ignored.

    Osgood did NOT play like a demon on ST this year. Quit watching the ball & watch the GAME.
