Norv Turner ~ In a Nutshell
Following this weeks loss in Cleveland Norv Turner said some interesting things to the press. Let’s me break them down and tell you what I think he’s saying.
“You’re coaching on a week-to-week basis” – You need to be coaching on a play-by-play basis. Is this his way of saying he checks out once the game starts?
“I’m coaching to do the best job I can to get our team ready to play Kansas City.” - Your best if not good enough. I think you have already proven that.
All those other conversations, they’re going to take place. You know they’re going to take place.” – He is referring to the conversations as to whether or not he is going to have a job. They better take place soon and he better not.
“We’ve not been able to put together the kind of consistency we need to.” – Duh! Same story different season. He is not the man for the job. Period.
“Usually, it’s a different thing in each situation where you have an opportunity to make a big play. You only get so many in a game. One play it might be protection, one play it might be we didn’t make the throw we wanted to make, one play it might be we’re still trying to get on the same page. Yesterday, obviously, we had a couple of opportunities for big plays. One was where Meach wasn’t able to come up with a big catch.” – Norv, Norv, Norv. Football teams that win, make the big plays happen. Make opportunity, do not wait for it. He is basically saying the players are not getting it done. Coach them man!
Suffering through Norv Turners tenure as the Chargers head coach has been nothing short of painful. We got beat by the Saints when they had no head coach! What does that tell you? I’m sure he is a nice guy, but he is not a head coach. Fire him or demote him to OC and let’s get someone in there that can manage a team.
