Outside two good seasons, Norv turning is playing .500 ball with the Chargers. Isn't good enough to cut it! This was the first year that San Diego had a tough time getting points up on the board under his reign. They let their good guys guy go bye bye. Getting bitchslapped by Denver this year gon dun it doooby doobie dooo.

I think Tom Moore becomes OC next year. He said he wants to coach, and he's probably not getting any HC offers, plus he's been Manning's coach for most of Manning's adult life.

What's Norv? A former QB coach? Why not bring him in and have an actual QB coach.

Oh please do. Then you can slowly say goodbye to your OL while he replenishes it with late picks and UDFA's like he has done to ours.

But hey , he also likes to take chances on guys in the draft that are hurt or even in the hospital who may never play a down for you.

Yeah he has had some good picks but also has had some WTF moments too....like Larry English. Holy hell what a waste of a first rounder.

I could go either way on AJ Smith. He's been both good and bad. I like the idea of a fresh start but I don't know if Jimmy Ray is exactly a fresh start.

But if you look at the history of the Chargers (especially under Spanos), they've historically not drafted o-linemen high. Is AJ taking heat for this because Spanos is having input on this? I don't know.

Also, Norv has historically been terrible at developing talent. I think a lot of the younger players are very talented but aren't being coached up properly.

Norv needs to go but AJ might be kind of a fall guy here. But he hitched his wagon to Norv so if you look at it like that, he's gotta go. I wouldn't be surprised to see him wind up somewhere else and build a good team though, depending on the coach he hires however.

Um, i doubt Dean is telling anybody who to draft. Hec he cant even fire anyone properly. AJ absolutely should go down with the ship. He hired Norv..which was just a train wreck and i hated it when they announced it.

Norv when hired said this team didnt need anything and he expected great things and that turd took it down like he has every other team he has been with. I doubt Norv ever gets a HC job again after destroying the Chargers...and yes, AJ has to take blame for that.

Any GM can make good draft picks here and there especially when your picking high in the draft in every round but AJ....his trade ups for guys like Jacob Hester are huge WTF moments. And yes it was only a 7th round pick but WTH was he doing picking Demetrius Byrd when he was near death in the hospital and said to never be able to play again?

AJ said it after last season. If Norv goes, he will go too. OK, C-Ya!

Make him the highest paid asst. coach in the league, and then give him a little more just for good faith, and then tell him we got a deal for him. If the Broncos can win back to back SB in the next 2 to 3 years, Fox will retire rich & happy, maybe Manning too, and then he can take over with the OZ Man at the helm. ;)

Norv is a terrible motivator of men and clock manager (i.e., a couple of the many qualities you need in a HC), but a good OC.

The problems are the line has been neglected for so long, they can no longer provide time\protection for the QB. You have Rivers running for his life and making stupid decisions because of it.

And the Jared Gaither, Eddie Royal, and Robert Meachem experiments have all failed.

Add all that up, and there's your 4-8 Chargers!

I mean seriously, WHO ARE THESE LINEMAN they're starting????:

Chargers left tackle Michael Harris said he "definitely" expects to play against the Steelers despite not practicing this week. Jeromey Clary and Tyronne Green are both out.

Harris (ankle) was listed as questionable on the team's injury report released Friday.

"In our experience," Norv Turner said, " 'questionable' doesn’t play a lot, but we’re giving (Harris) a chance if he can get better over the next 48 hours."

Kevin Haslam replaced Clary, the right tackle, during the Bengals game. In the fourth quarter, Haslam allowed a forced/fumble sack to end Carlos Dunlap.

Friday, Haslam practiced at left tackle with Reggie Wells at right tackle.

These guys were bagging groceries at Albertson's just a few months ago ;)

Rivers is going to get killed on Sunday against the Steelers. They should seriously consider starting Whitehurst, just to keep Rivers alive...

They asked Marty that in a radio interview here in KC. He was just too old and too tired to want to rebuild another team. I mean he built up Cleveland, Kansas City and San Diego into very good teams. That's a lot for a coach to do in his long career.

I think he was just burnt out and after 5 years of taking time off, he went to the Virginia Destroyers to dable with a lower league.

Now he just enjoys football from the comfort of his couch. He actually has been giving advice to Clark Hunt this year. Hopefully it's about who the next GM is.

AJ has had his good picks but when we were picking early, it hard not to screw those up unless you are the Raiders who have been picking top 10 for 10 years and still suck. But AJ also has had his share of busts.

Larry English is a bust and a #16 pick overall. Cason has been very inconsistant and a first rounder and probably wont be back next season. He traded up to draft Hester in the 3rd when he was a rated 5th and he drafted him ahead of Charles. Drafted LB Jonas Mouton in the 2nd round when he was rated a 5th and he hasnt seen the field yet.
He has had some good picks though but he does not draft offensive lineman high and he has only picked three in the top three rounds since he has been here since 2003 and NONE in the first round.

AJ is good at signing undrafted players and finding good ones. He is not good at getting something for players who could leave the next year or tagging them in a way to get something for them like Billichick does. He relies more on getting comp picks instead.
We only got a 4th or 5th round comp pick for Michael Turner when we could of got a lot more from The Titans who were offering two high picks before the draft going into his last year here but AJ decided to keep him and he hardly played that year. He is also very stubborn and doesnt always imo do whats best for the team.
Example, made VJ sit out nearly all year, made Gates miss some games for not getting his contract signed in time, Didnt sign McNeill til mid year (he was sucking anyways but we had nobody else)...ust to name a few.

All that said, i cant see any way Elway would bring him in to do the job he himself is doing. And he is doing it well so far so i cant see AJ going to Denver at all.

I never understood what Allen did to deserve a HC position, but more than that, I'm convinced the Raiders hired him away to weaken us more than anything else. I guess they figured the D would continue to grow under Allen, so they wanted to throw the staff and that side of the ball in disarray.

Luckily it has been a blessing in disguise for us.

I never understood what Allen did to deserve a HC position, but more than that, I'm convinced the Raiders hired him away to weaken us more than anything else. I guess they figured the D would continue to grow under Allen, so they wanted to throw the staff and that side of the ball in disarray.

Luckily it has been a blessing in disguise for us.

Yeah it is surprising Allen was hired after all Denver ranked 20th in defense last year. I wonder if they will go after Del Rio this year... that would be kinda funny.

Would love to see it.

Haven't they learned what good does firing coaches every 1 or 2 years. I agree with trying to screw us 100%. JDR would be much bigger loss vs losing Allen.

If Denver wins the Super Bowl, I would say Del Rio would accept an offer, otherwise, no. I think he's smart enough to stay away from that mess out there if we're still knocking on the door. He'd do much better adding a SB to his coaching resume, not to mention going to a better organization.

There was an article about Del Rio's son playing high school football in Denver. If he is a Sophmore or JR I would look for Del Rio to stick around until he graduates.

Fortunately I think JDR is smart and seasoned enough to know how stupid it would be to accept an offer from the Raiders.

The chargers had one of the NFLs most talented rosters for about eight years and got nothing done, that is Norv and AJs legacy in SD. Begs the question what would have happened if they had just kept Marty S. after that 14-2 season?

Most likely it would have been the same outcome.

I liked Marty a lot but with his brother at DC and anyone's guess at OC, it wouldn't have happened, especially with his track record in the playoffs.

I don't see the Raiders firing Allen unless they think they have a real shot to get Gruden.
