    You mentioned that Norv's stats showed him to be mediocre. Show us the stats. Put up or shut up as it were.

    Simple, back up your rhetoric. Can you, I think not.

    I know that, Anger Man. People in here have said that too.

    That's a reason why Rivers said that!

    Look at his stats before he came here!!! :rolleyes:

    I didn't say he's mediocre either. I said he's below average. Face it... Kevin Gilbride could keep this team winning and get them to the playoffs. Maybe win a game or two as well.

    Though you sold yourself a concept that we were nothing till Norv came along!!! :yes:

    Show me.

    (and... like Conc... I'm not angry. So I'd appreciate a different label. Thanks)

    Norv didn't miss the tackles, drop the interceptions or fumble the ball. Guys are in a position to score, stop plays early or get turnovers enough to decide games in our favor. Norval and Rivera get us there often enough to win. The players themselves have said as much. Plenty of us have been screaming for D and O beef for a while. What we got instead was likes of Buster Davis, Hester, Johnson and Tolbert. Somewhat useful at best, but nowhere near as valuable as linemen. If we were going to trade up for someone, a lineman would have been a better choice. Martin and Vasquez will no doubt provide value down the road, but we needed their likes two drafts ago.

    It all starts up front, on both sides of th ball, and so far AJ hasn't brought those guys in often enough or early enough. You don't assess needs after guys begin to fade, you assess them based on their age at the time you enter the current draft. All GM's have a blind spot or two. AJ's appears to be the lines. McNeil not withstanding. Everyone we have playing from the center on over to the right are career backups. Maybe I'll be proved wrong as the season progresses, but that's what it looks like right now-and right now we don't have the personnel for a 3-4 defense, either.

    Show the stats. You always do this. Go on an over emotional rant, and show that you are completly incapable of backing up your statements.

    Show us the stats that back your position. You said he is below average. Show us. Give us the winning percentage as a Chargers head coach, show us his post season record, and give us numbers to back your statement.

    Show us that you are not just a person who has no controls over their emotions and that you know what your talking about. If you are capable. Personally, I think you will just answer with another post of jibberish and not back anything you said. But then again, you havent changed in four years, why would you start now?

    Right now, we don't have the team we though we'd have, either. We have injuries to some studs and even their back ups appear to be nicked.

    Our Bolt's are 20 - 14 under Nrov at this time not including the PO's, damn he's about par with Don Coryell. I might should go back and check these stats.:icon_shrug:

    Better be careful about how you present those stats.

    Norv Hater will say that this is the only year that should count toward Norv's coaching record, because those other teams were Marty's.

    So he's already got it figured that Norv only has a record of 1-1.

    You'll get the label of STAT DISTORTER. :lol:

    Yeah but, Norv did it with teams wracked with injury and missing key personnel. My bad, that don't count. ****, foiled again.

    We've been over this a trillion times but here we go again. :yawn:

    Redskins 49-59-1 That is below average!!!!
    Raiders 9-23 I'll cut him some slack there cause that was a lousy team.

    BOTTOM LINE... He didn't make the Chargers, THE CHARGERS MADE HIM!!! This team would have made Kevin Gilbride look good!

    You keep trying to sell me (and everyone else) this concept that we're a mediocre team till Norv came along.

    And Berry Switzer got the Cowboys a ring. Does that mean he's better than Norv?

    Dude, I respect your position but quit with the cheap ****. Norv is 20 and 14 with the Bolt's, unfortunately that blows you out of the water.

    You may be right come the conclusion of this year, then again you may be dead wrong. I choose to wait and see.

    If you are right, I will give you two weeks to draw a crowd and let Conc kiss you azz on Broadway.

    No kiss *** or anything like that necessary. We all want the Chargers to win.

    But stop trying to sell me that Norv made this team.
    Did Switzer make the Cowboys? Yes or No?

    Norv is an exact replica of Switzer. Bad coach given a great team.

    WTF?!!!
    Gun toting idiot with suicidal tendencies? :icon_shrug:

    Who do you think Berry Switzer is?


    Well I'm referring to HC of the Cowboys from 1994–1997 and won the title in 95. I have no idea who the Hell you're referring to.

    Who really needs help?
