    I 100% agree also, but this is nothing new, and there is nothing the fans can really do to force him to sell the team, so we are stuck with him

    I think that it's wrong to practically absolve Norv and Smitty because of Dean's decision. Smitty had just gotten done having 3 of the best offseasons this team had ever had, in a row, and it was a choice between Smitty or letting Schottenheimer go after a 1 and done in the playoffs. Dean should've fired Marty and Norv before he did (Marty after the loss and not weeks later, Norv after last season), but the statement that Dean didn't have conviction just because he didn't fire Norv and put "just anybody" in at HC seems a little silly. Spanos needs to make a quality executive decision on the direction that this team is taking going forward, because I don't see Norv getting extended as being an option on the table.

    Buddy Nix was here for those three years. Together they were a great team. Now that they are separated neither one has done anything spectacular.

    Have any of our past head coaches ever left and been successful with another team? What about our past GM's?

    I can't think of any off the top of my head.

    Several assistants have, off the top of my head, Noll, Madden and Gibbs. I'm sure there are others but I can't think of them without looking.

    I totally agree here and with most of Trotters articles. It's time Deano really looked in the mirror about everything.

    Spot on Doug - this is the end of the road for H/C GM careers - conversely, how tired are you of seeing former Chargers vets going on to other teams and showing great success? (Part of the reason I am ready to see AJ go as well as Norv, we continue to let the wrong guys go, and keep guys to fill the IR list).

    How many coaches in the history of the NFL have been successful with multiple teams, and when I said successful, I mean won a SB? I am pretty sure there aren't more than a couple

    That is true, and he did it without Barry Sanders.

    Sid Gillman coached a crappy Houston Oilers team to a 7-7 record earning AFC Coach of the Year honors, but they did not make the playoffs.
