How Many Coaches Have A Hotter Seat Than Norv Turner?

Pro Football Weekly came out with a list with all the head coaches and ranked them based off of who’s seat is hottest. Guess who’s seat is hotter than Coach Turner.

Here is the top 10 ranking based off of who’s seat is hottest:

1. Andy Reid
2. Norv Turner
3. Leslie Frazier
4. Pat Shurmur
5. Rex Ryan
6. Jason Garrett
7. Marvin Lewis
8. Lovie Smith
9. Chan Gailey
10. Mike Shanahan

Should we even say that Norv’s seat is hot anymore? The organization showed faith in him after two straight seasons of missing the playoffs. We though that there was no way he would be able to keep his job after his performance last season, but he will still be there with the headset on the sidelines.

What will it take to actually get Coach Turner fired? Does anyone know the answer to that?

    Absolutely his seat is hot. If he doesn’t get us into the playoffs this season, something is wrong. You can’t blame it on A.J. Smith after what he’s done this year.

    Making a list of coaches (and players) on the “hot-seat” is becoming quite overrated because only a handful of these men have a “secure” job (e.g. Belichick, Coughlin) and that is a byproduct not only from on the field performance but from management as well. I believe that there’s so much a coach can do that would make a substantial impact more than the players themselves but what do I hold more accountable than coaches and players combined are the GM, like a marriage, behind a great man is a great woman (and viceversa), behind a great coach is a great GM. For me, coach Norv is doing the best job he can and that is to coach a pretty darn good offense, no more, no less, therefore who is really on the “hot-seat” is AJ Smith. He’s on a playoff or bust season.

    The NFL is a business, the Chargers are a business… I think that Dean deep down believes that Norv can get this done and is the coach to lead us to the promise land. But if we do not make the playoffs this season his hand will be forced.

    AJ has done his job this offseason. Its up to Norv to take advantage of it during the season.

    Only time will tell.

    One year as a G. M. in the draft means nothing until the players you chose have performed. Five years of failures are the legacy that Smith has given us after the debacle of the Schottenheimer firing.
    Assess A. J.’s pick’s at the end of the season. If you cannot win the division title every year in this Division then you are under performing. The best team on paper is just a fantasy if the results are a lack of getting to the Playoffs. Houston “we have a problem” if the team is number one in offense and defense but cant win a weak division. Results are what counts not stats.

    i think Norv and Andy should trade spots. Andy has gone through several QB’s yet manages to turn things around and be competitive in his division. Norv has had Phillip, his entire 5 years he’s been here, and only managed to coach this teams record in “one” direction.
    year 6 Norv. time to turn it up.
