    Will the real Norv Turner please stand up?

    Behold an amazing human transformation. From idiot to genius in four short weeks, he overcame unbelievably long odds to turn himself from a laughingstock into an icon. He once flailed helplessly in a bobbing sea of confusion, unable to ascertain even the simplest concepts. He now stands tall and proud, feted and honored as a singular leader of men.


    Ladies and gentlemen, Norv Turner.

    He was as good as fired if his San Diego Chargers didn't make the playoffs. Oh, how helpless he looked as his team stumbled through misfortune and poor execution. With his team 4-8, his name was being tossed around as a potential offensive coordinator for next season. He would be fired, but at least the 49ers would have him back to call their plays, wouldn't they? He can call plays, they all said, but he's not a leader.

    Oh, poor Norv -- his fait was accompli.

    And then, somehow, Norv got smart again. Norv reeled off four wins in a row to single-handedly and single-mindedly will his team to the playoffs. And then Norv steeled his mighty spine and kept his team together through four harrowing quarters and part of an overtime period Saturday night against Indianapolis. In the end, Norv -- mighty Norv -- emerged victorious.

    And now the commentators talk over themselves to find the right words to praise Norv. He kept the team together, weathered the storms, stayed calm and glinty-eyed in the face of doom. Through adversity he traveled, exhorting his men to greater and greater heights of human achievement.

    Either that, or the Broncos fell apart, the Colts couldn't block for Peyton Manning on the most important third down of the season and the Chargers got lucky on the coin flip to start overtime. Oh, and those three Colts penalties during OT didn't hurt, either.

    But whatever. Norv Turner, man among men.

    For now, anyway.

    Oh this different looks are only the two sides of one and only coin. If you flipp it, possibly changes the view.

    I just relooked at the last 5 minutes of our Kansas City game.
    It all was hanging on a thin rope. Two TDs in the last 2 min.
    an unside kick fumbled and a FG missed a little left.

    get the coach all credit he deserves, but at least football
    is a game of luck under a clear sky.
