    2007- 2 playoff wins
    2008- 1 Playoff win
    2009- 0 playoff wins
    2010- No playoff appearance

    Very similar to Barry Switzer except that Switzer actually won a Super Bowl

    I totally agree with you sir! What do u purpose as the fix friend?

    NOTE we hired a losing NFL coach from day 1 and still has an overall losing record does this make sense people? Great coaches win everywhere they go with lessor talent.

    I am officially on the Fire Norv bandwagon.

    OK CD...If you had a choice to make between replacing Nate as our kicker, or Norv as our coach next season who would it be.

    I'm just testing to see committed to the fire Norv bandwagon you are.

    I have fallen off the Norv bandwagon to the point that Nate would look good to me in this scenario. I'm also off the AJ bandwagon...Nate is looking better only because the stench of Norv and Aj is growing every week..

    I would take Clary in 2011 if it meant AJ and Norv got replaced

    The Irony is Norv was with those 9o's Cowboys. Why can't he work he's magic here?

    Because theres a huge difference between being the OC and being in charge of the team.

    Agreed.  Norv is a great OC...bad a terrible HC! His record SCREAMED this to all-an-sundry. How come our great GM didn`t see the same thing??

    The Chargers were headed in the wrong direction ever since they fired Marty and hired a losing record head coach in Norv. AJ forced Spanos into choosing between the two of them which he should never have done! AJ and Spanos have cost this franchise a hellova lot and they should be made to pay for it. (Difficult to make Spanos pay thou being the owner). lol

    I dont know how we fix all this in time to when a superbowl ib my lifetime..I really dont. There are alot of wholes to fill on the roster and more importantly on the coaching staff!

    I dunno what will happen in the future...that scares me. Burt I hope like hell that we can recover from this and at least make some positrive strides to changing things.

    There is times that either an OC or DC is the Greatest at it but when it comes to being a HC they Suck Balls so much.

    Norv just Sucks Balls as a HC Period and the Chargers are proof of that and Norv needs to be gotten rid of like Yesterday.:mad:

    Bolts4Life was right.

    During the last off season, Rivers rode around with the logo "17-13" on his ride or the score of last years playoff game.

    Maybe Joan Kroc will buy this team and keep it here (opps I think she is dead)

    I don't think Norv is a very good OC either, dude is past his prime. We need some young dynamic coach in here.

    Fire

    Norv
    Clearance Clarence Shelmon
    Crosby
    Nate

    Norv is our OC. If we keep his arse we need to hire a REAL OC so he can focus on being a HC.

    I think I'd prefer hiring the HC & Norv being OC only.

    But nothing is gonna happen except an address change.

    I don't think it is realistic for a coach to take a demotion. I do not recall ever seeing it happen.

    It happens all the time. It's even happened with Norv before he came to San Diego. I'm just not sure if it's ever happened where he stayed with the same team while taking a lesser position.

    He was the OC and didn't have 00% control of the offense just like how Cam didn't have 100% control under Marty

    I agree, I hate his offense, I hate his red zone play calls. He's tired and far too predictable, the game has passed him by. QB coach is about all he has left in him. Rivers has been overcoming the Norv handicap as best he can, as has the rest of the skill talent, but the Chargers offensive success is far more on Rivers than Norv in my opinion.

    Guy needs to go. The team needs fresh leadership.

    As for Smitty, he too has waddled through a mediocre record for too long. Two guys promoted one rung above their competency levels. Peter Principle 101.

    Yes that is what I meant, same team. We could not fire Norv until the end of the season because he is also acting as the OC.
    There are going to be many HC openings after the end of the season. I think Gruden and Cowher may be scooped up this go around. So fare we have Dallas, Minn, Den, and SF open. There also may be openings in Houston, Cin, Miami, Carolina, Tenn, and maybe NYG.

    Get a guy like the Tuna for HC/personnel. Holmgren if he were available. Keep RR & Norv as asst. HC's with their same unit responsibilities.

    We need another OL coach like Houck (is there a guy like him?). Wonder how someone like Firenz from Iowa would do with our guys?

    Of course, anything like this would require eliminating AJ.

    Yeah, because he was the ONLY person who had misgivings about Norv. You make it sound like he was the lone voice opposed to hiring Norv. He was just the only person who pissed and moaned about it in damn near every single thread he ever participated in. He was a monotonous jerk off, and the board has been a better place to visit since his dumb *** went away. He gets no credit for anything other than being an insufferable twit.

    Norv was the first choice of almost NOBODY, but most of us gave him the benefit of the doubt because we were smart enough to realize he was going to be our coach anyway, the incessant whining would accomplish nothing other than annoying the other members of the forum.
