    Some of you keep saying things like "Marty can't win Playoff games", "Marty wanted to bring in his brother for DC" as if we're in a much better situation now.

    I'll agree that if people really think that Marty coming back is an option, that the chances aren't too likely but I don't think that's the message.
    The message is that "We're suppose to be a better team!!!"
    Why is that hard to understand?
    We ALL know Norv's past.
    In AJ We (used to) Trust!!!!
    His ego has taken over his brain and we ALL have a right to be pizzed!!!

    It's a question that I've never asked.
    I think it's logical as well.

    I'll tell you what. Show us a post prior to Norv's hiring where you support Marty and I will consider you not full of shiat.

    Until that time :fan:

    That's exactly it. I don't think you have to be a Marty hater, I didn't hate him. I'm just weary of his sainthood all of a sudden. People universally wanted him gone, hated Martyball, etc. Now, he has transformed from ultra conservative playoff failure to misunderstood, mistreated genius.

    Marty did as good as he could. I think we were on the verge of stagnating. To think it came down to dallas taking wade phillips over Norv. We would have probably wound up with wade and very probably been doing better.

    now I don't know what were doing. Running around like a chicken with its head cut off comes to mind now.

    If the coaches can just get the o-line to work right. Especially the pass blocking. And somehow make the middle short coverage better we'll be better off.

    Marty was successful here in San Diego, but he couldnt get to the next level. I was glad to see him leave, yet dissappointed to see Norv Turner hired... I just thought the amount of talent could overcome his deficiencies as a Head Coach...

    For the record, I'd chant "Marty, Marty, Marty" at the game to send a message to AJ, and Norv, but I certainly do not want Marty back... besides it is not in the realm of possibilties, we all know that, which is funny to see bloggers calling for Norv to be fired and Marty to be re-hired. :icon_huh: :icon_rofl:

    As dissmal as the season has started, we are still IN THIS for the division!!!! :abq2:

    FOUTS

    Sorry but I'm not going to search for posts from 8 months back.
    Too time consuming!!!!

    I expressed my disappointment about the playoffs last season and called Marty out on a few things. After blowing off some steam, I stated that we should let him finish out his contract.

    The second I heard Norv was even a consideration... I stated "please don't do it, AJ!!!!"

    You really like Marty don't you.

    You have been trying to get him to blow you in several threads.

    I don't get the point of the Marty love by many posters. Marty's *** puckered so tight in both our playoff losses. He is never going to win the Super Bowl, let alone the games to get to the Super Bowl.

    Am I happy with Norv? No. I wanted Singletary or Ryan. If Spanos had fired Shittenheimlichmanuever after the Pats loss, we could have had Wade Phillips.

    But the Marty love needs to stop. The guy was just the self-described "CEO coach" last year. Who would be his coordinators if he stayed? Shelmon and his brother? Marty is also the *** wipe that let Chudzinski and Manusky go to other teams, moves that could have been blocked by him. Marty got himself fired when he tried to hire his brother.

    People are trying to re-write history just because they are ticked at our current record. Go ahead and be mad, but don't alter the truth about Marty's exit, or his own horrible shortcomings in big games.

    Marty can blow me.

    I see. So you worry about playoff wins BEFORE we make it to the playoffs!!!
    Keep in mind that Marty was ONE FUMBLE away from going to the Super Bowl in Cleveland!!!

    Nobody is trying to rewrite history!!!
    The problem is that we're in a much worse situation than we were with Marty!!! FACE FACTS!!!

    All those who keep talking about winning in the playoffs better realize that you NEED TO MAKE IT TO THE PLAYOFFS FIRST!!!

    Marty wasn't the answer. Norv but look like the answer either, but that book isn't fully written.

    Again ..... Marty said he was just the CEO coach last season. He wasn't doing the gameplans, only retaining gameday control and personell package decisions. Go find the links.

    So, you want two coordinators that have either no experience, or no experience in our system? Maybe we'd be 0-4 with Marty. You can't say one way or the other what our record would be.

    Marty sucked vs good teams. Regular season and playoffs. I'm not happy with Norv, but I'm damn glad that piece of **** Shottenheimer is gone.

    1-15, 13-3... As long as Marty isn't the coach, either one will do, huh?!!! :icon_huh:


    I'll take what Marty had over what we have now any day of the week!!! Maybe we'd be 4-0 with Marty. You can't say one way or the other what our record would be. :rolleyes:




    With all of that said, I'd rather have another disappointment in the playoffs than what we may be headed for now!!! :icon_evil:

    I suppose you were singing Marty's praises in 2002 when SD had a second half collapse? Or maybe in 2003 when Marty led this team to the first pick in the 2004 draft? Or maybe when Marty underachieved in 2005?

    Then there are the two choke jobs in the playoffs, and Marty's history of losing playoffs games when he has the better team, and Marty's poor career record against teams with good records.

    Marty needed to go.

    Keep crying. Keep starting worthless threads. Damn near everyone is upset with Norv. Crying about Marty isn't going to change things, and he's never coming back - for damn good reasons.

    2002: We here horrible and had to rebuild EVERYTHING (with the exception of running back).

    2003: Rebuilding time!!!

    2005: Long road trips and too many missed opportunities (both on the coaches and the players).

    NOW WE GOT EVERYTHING AND WE'RE LOOKING WORSE!!!


    Speaking of poor playoff records... LOOK WHAT WE HAVE NOW!!!!
    ARE WE IN A BETTER SITUATION? YES or NO?


    So Marty needed to go but we SHOULD have let him finish out is contract and waited till 2008 to see who's available!!!
    I called that about a week or two after that frustrating playoff loss!!

    THE ENTIRE ERA OF THIS TEAM IS IN DANGER RIGHT NOW!!!
