The Norv Turner Effect?

National Football Post just posted an article called the Norv Turner Effect. Their idea of the Norv Turner effect is a complete 180 of what San Diego Chargers fans think when they hear that term.

Here is the title of the post:

The Norv Turner Effect
The Cleveland passing game should receive a big boost in 2013 thanks to the addition of the team’s new offensive coordinator.

Is that right? A big boost?

The same Norv Turner that has Philip Rivers shaking in his boots any time he has to take a 7 step drop?

Remember when we thought that Norv Turner would be good for our running game because of what he was able to do with Emmitt Smith? I don’t think Ryan Mathews excelled with Norv at the helm. Ladainian Tomlinson seemed unhappy with the system as well.

It’s funny how long greats like Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman will last on the resume.

Norv Turner is supposed to save that Cleveland Browns. Remember how well Norv Turner’s offense did in Cleveland last season? SIX POINTS!!!! SIX! That is an offense that has Philip Rivers running the ship. Who is the Browns quarterback again? Who are their receivers?

I don’t see Norv Turner being a saving grace for their offense this season. He wasn’t able to make the pieces work in San Diego the last few years and wouldn’t make any adjustments to his scheme. His personnel wouldn’t allow for deep drops, but he still wanted to force the issue.

First down, run up the middle. Second down, run up the middle. Third down, quarterback save us!

The Norv Turner Effect…. You write the definition!
