Default Norv Turner to be fired...

ABC is reporting that Norv Turner will be fired at the end of the season. Also AJ Smith could be fired as well. Team source says the decision has not been made, but things are "lined up".

I've never really understood the end of the season firing. Why not can him now?

We have only beaten the Chargers twice while Rivers and Norv have been together.

Ed Hoculi won us one of them.

Well, now that it's out, expect him to get fired a lot sooner...

Hochuli game

The Monday (Sunday?) Night game in McD's only winning streak

and last week.

Once again the alleged "NFL's most talented team" falls on it's face...never heard of such an underachieving team getting so much love from the media pointy heads

Norv: "So am I fired?"

Owner: "No, no, relax. You're not fired. But you will be."

Exactly, now that he'll be asked questions about it every five minutes, I give it two weeks. Might as well kick the tires on an assistant.

This....

Norv has always had competitive players... he's a terrible game-day coach though.

I can see that. AJ hasn't had good drafts.

http://www.pro-football-reference.co.../sdg/draft.htm

Norv has done well with what he had to work with, though. AJ's drafts have been pretty bad. There's about zero starters there, and he traded up to get to almost zero.

They will both be fired, Spanos Jr wants to run the team so he needs to bring in a puppet GM for a couple of years until he is ready to take full control.

I think the reason they are not firing Turner now is that they have nobody on the coaching staff whom they would want to take over, so instead of giving a position coach or coordinator some games as HC (like we did) and then be obliged to interview that guy and subsequently not hire him just makes things awkward. I am hearing some people are speculating they are lining up Chudzinski as their new HC.

If you thought that was odd, Rick Neuheisel coached the UCLA Bruins last night while already fired as the head coach

The same guy they let go to Carolina to be the OC? I have a feeling that SD will and probably get a big name coach. I can see Jeff Fisher going to SD in a heartbeat.

How many coaches will Tebow and the Tebow critics get fired this season?

The Tebow critics have mocked Tebow so much that when he beats these teams the fans are outraged.. lol

I'm surprised Kubiak didn't get fired last season when TT got him too..

Good lord, the crown of AJ's drafts is Ryan Matthews with 10 TD's in 22 games. LMAO. AJ wanted Moreno real bad, McD drafted him ahead of SD, so AJ drafted Larry English (whoops), then they cut LaDainian and trade up about 8 spots to draft Ryan Matthews who doesn't produce. And I believe AJ traded a future #2 to draft Jacob Hester. Norv isn't the problem.

I wonder what SD would look like now if they had been able to draft Moreno with Sproles on the roster already. Might have turned out a lot different.

Rivers, McNeil, VJ, Weddle, Cromatie, Micheal Turner, Sproles, Gates,Merriman, Phillips, Castillo

You may hate him but that is a damn good group of players to build a team around and I total disagree AJ hasn't had good drafts. You can't hit a home run every year damn there are alot ton of top notch players All Pro players to be exact

AJ only drafted Weddle. And he traded up to get him. He might have drafted McNeil, I don't recall.

I don't believe Norv has. I think Marty's former team has and Rivers has. What we are seeing now is Norv's team and the expected result of Norv's touch.
