Today was probably the last time he'll coach against the Broncos as a Chargers coach.

Don't know, but wouldn't bet against him being ****faced as heck within the next 24 to 48 hours.

I don't think it happens this week, but he's minimum gone at the end of the year. I'll say after week 14 when they're eliminated.

It should be tomorrow, but I think Reid is going first. Norv might make it another week. Why keep him until the end? Show all those underachievers that no one is safe.

I think Reid survives the year because of his son's passing. They will hold off and not do that just because it would look bad PR wise. That's just MO.

I see Norv getting canned during this season though and it could happen this week...

I think Norv being canned soon depends on if Spanos wants AJ Smith as his GM.

Norv looked cool as hell in rocking his rose colored aviators on the sideline. He looked very Marty like.

They have a damned fine team, loads of talent he tried his best to keep them in the game..

I have no idea what happened to rivers he was a really good QB a couple of years ago..

Maybe getting the snot beat out of you just does things with your head..

He looked really strong in the last part of the game,, about the time it seemed like we went into prevent and did not HOLD out foot to their throats..

we were up then they pulled off the onside lick and we were not ready for it..

it was to easy in the last part of the first half and we started to coast.. they got BIG MO back and it could have went either way..

At one point in the third Quarter they had 52 yards of offense..

I see it as inconsistency from lots of young players.. and lack of leadership from the old vets..

San Diego and KC should do a 1-for-1 trade reminiscent of the Clinton Portis for Champ Bailey trade.

Send Norv to KC for Romeo Crennel straught up!

IDK Eagles fans are about as heartless as they come.

But you think the owner would do that to a guy he has essentially supported all these years?

You are right, eagles fans are gutless but I think Lurie will let Reid run out the string.

I also think Reid will get a job next season right away.

Suppose McCoy gets a head coaching gig after this season and Norv lasts long enough to get canned at the end. Thoughts about Norv becoming the Broncos OC?

Gladly! Awesome OC... As good as Wade Philips is a DC.

More worried about who we will get to be our DC bc JDR is going to get another HC gig and with his son Luke graduating this year, there is no reason to stay in Denver... Except that he will be relatively close to OkSt. But KC is also relatively close...

I don't see JDR leaving unless it is for a good organization, not for one that is rebuilding like the chefs.

DBroncos4life
11-18-2012, 09:43 PM
I bet they can rebuild faster with Norv as HC then they can with Rivers as QB. Rivers has turned the ball over 46 times over the last 26 or 27 games. He should be getting the blame.

Goobzilla
11-18-2012, 09:53 PM
Reid's checked out man. Left McCoy in the game down 25 under 2 mins. He gets a concussion future status up in the air. Got asked about it at the post game presser and said "We were trying to win the game" REALLY?
Empty cardboard boxes to clean out there offices for:
Reid, Norv, Pat Shurmur, and probably Rex Ryan and Ron Rivera. Romeo and Dennis Allen probably get a pass since their teams are too cheap to eat their contracts and admit they made McDaniels sized mistakes. Does Shanny "retire" at season's end? I see a lot of turnover in the ranks during and after this season

Where have all the good coaches gone???

Spanos doesn't have the nads to fire him tomorrow.

He'll last until the end of the year.

Please keep him for another 2 years. If not I think McD would be a great candidate.

I hope he coaches another 6 years! Long Live Norv!!!

Well, Norv is dead man walking. AJ is a little tougher. Not so sure what will happen to him yet. (I think they'll both be gone)

There's really no point in firing a GM in the middle of the season.

But there's absolutely no reason to keep Norv a single day longer. Spanos should man up for one day in his life and give the Charger fans something to cheer about this year.

He won't though...

I may be wrong, but if Spanos is hanging on to Norv for the rest of the year, that signals to me that he is going to completely clean house. That way the new GM gets to make his own selection.

We already lost Al Davis with the Faid. They will improve. Bolt need to keep Norv to keep them at .500 for the rest of his time there.

That would be the logical way to do it. Not sure Spanos is..

This is how it should be run. Andy Reid in SD.

The problem with the Chargers is not all Norv, look at all the talent Smith let get away. I mean how do you let a player like Sproles or Jackson walk? And there is a long list of others.

You are absolutely right, but it is very possible that AJ did not pay those players simply because Spanos told him not to. We all know how cheap he is. In other words, if AJ keeps his job after the supposed "house cleaning", then we know he is only following the owner's mandate.

Don't laugh, Elgin Baylor somehow kept his job as GM of the Clippers for 22 years of overseeing the sorriest team in basketball. Why? Apparently, because he made the cheap owner a lot of money by doing what he was told, and getting rid of players that demanded big contracts.

The interesting question is who will Norv be the offensive coordinator for next year. There is virtually no chance he comes back to SD IMO. I'd say he works for a team with a defensive head coach who lost his offensive coordinator (hired as a head coach).

Looking around the league, how about Norv the broncos new offensive coordinator next year? He would be in demand and the top o-coordinators like to pick teams with an elite QB. NE may loose McDaniels but I don't see Norv fitting into the patriots way thing, they seem to like to hire guys groomed by Belichick.

Really depends on how much he wants to be a head coach again, which, of course, is a mystery. He'd be stupid to rush back into it though.

The other question in the AFCW is, does Romeo make it to the end of the season?

They will all be gone when SD bolts for LA in 2 years anyways, and thats all the spanos family cares about now.
They will make a huge chunk of change selling the team then, so hiring and firing to them is all just a big waste of time. They never cared, and now they really dont care.

I don't think he would fit in with Manning. He would not be willing to give Manning so much leeway with changing the plays IMO.

Best case scenario would be McCoy stays for the SB runs. Next i would like to see Adam Gase get promoted if McCoy leaves.

McDaniels isn't going anywhere. Belichick has already told him that he is only allowed to go to the Giants once Coughlin retires, so he can go and destroy them as revenge for their last two SBs.

Will they move to LA? Possibly. The economic climate here is bad and the local government doesn't seem to give a crap about building a stadium.

But they're not selling the team so your post makes ZERO sense.

There's a whole line of Spanos' that are involved in the football operations. They're keeping ownership in the family.

Do they have someone on staff they could replace him with that could fire up the team and eek out 2 more wins this year? If not might as well sweat out the last 6 games. It is not like the SD fans care.

I think you all you should read into that is that Spanos is cheap. If he fires Norv he is still going to be on the hook for his salary and most likely will promote his special teams coach to head coach which means he gets a salary adjustment and they would need to bump someone else up to special teams coach who could also get a salary adjustment. By keeping Norv around they save some dough.

WRONG.
The Spanos will sell. They stand to make a boat load of money when the team leaves for LA and the new stadium, however, they will make nothing unless they sell.
Thats the deal. Sell and make alot of money, dont sell, and piss off into even further obscurity as a homeless team.
The spanos will not be in LA, and the city council has already made it abundantly clear to them. The spanos will play ball.

You forget that AEG (which owns Staples/LA Live etc) is currently trying to sell all their assets, which makes the Downtown stadium deal and a team in LA even murkier.

Not if they are told that part of making that money is selling off the team.
Just wait. Your favorite little losers will be sold off at a monster price, and they will be 1 of 2 teams in LA, making gobs of money for a new owner.
And the Spanos will ride off into the sunset with gobs of money themselves, after years of clowning their fans and selling them all right down the tijuana river.

There's one reason the owners fought so hard not to show their books during the whole CBA thing.

And it's pretty easy to figure out why.
