    A.J. Smith and Norv Turner to Get Axed

         It's being reported that the Chargers owner has finally seen enough from these two, and will fire them both at the end of the season: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/dec/06/smith-will-join-turner-out-door-end-chargers-seaso/

      I would have canned Turner 2 years ago. And Turner to the jets would be a dream come true. LOL

    somewhere vincent jackson, shawn merriman and ladanian tomlinson are shaking their heads



    Shawn Merriman robbed the Chargers blind. Once he got off the performance enhancers his playing ability declined dramitically. He refused to get a surgery in an offseason and then decided to get season ending surgery right after the first or second game. He set that team back a couple of years at least with his attitude and behavior.

    They gave him a huge contract which he hardly played a game under. Defense went from one of the best to average almost overnight. They may have had chances to replace him but he kept saying he was healthy even though they wanted him to get surgery right away. Killed the cap and he became a team cancer out for only himself. Appeared on tv shows the night before games as well as being a known partier (nothing is wrong with partying but when you are on rehab it makes everyone look bad).

    And that's the reason why A.J. Smith is gone.  Poor decision making during the past several years.  Norv has never been a very good head coach.  Never got my head around his hiring to begin with.

    "somewhere vincent jackson, shawn merriman and ladanian tomlinson are shaking their heads"

    Right, because AJ gave them absurd contracts and Norv supported their antics and loser paper champions whining.

    They waited too long, the Chargers window closed a couple of years ago and they haven't rebuilt a Super Bowl caliber team like the Patriots, Giants, and a couple of other teams that manage to stay near the top.

         No. The Patriots set the Chargers back on their heels, permanently...by beating them at San Diego, 24-21, in 2006. The Chargers, then coached by Marty Shottenheimer, were the best team in the NFL by far, that season. But...they gagged against the Pats: http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=270114024

         In the aftermath of that game, the Chargers whined like spoiled children about how they were disrespected by the dastardly Pats...fired a coach who had led them to a 14-2 season, and replaced him with Norv Turner, of all people.

         With the parting of disciplinarian Shottenheimer, the Chargers gradually came apart at the seems, to the point where they drowned in a sea of penalties, and turnovers.

         I don't see Rex getting fired. Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum, and current OC Tony Sparano are another matter. Rex is a good coach, whose done a great job with the Jets' defense. He has nothing to work with on offense. Though Mark Sanchez will never be a Brady-like franchise QB, he's servicable. But, he needs to be surrounded with weapons. He currently has none. Who does he have to throw to...Jeremy Curley?? Top RB Shonn Greene isn't as good as BJGE, or Stevan Ridley.

    Reid will have a team to coach.   I'm surprised Marty isn't some where  there's at least 6 coaches that should be axed.

    Speaking of getting screwed.  I think al Davis was dead when the trade was made but bill b never screwed him this bad.  For Palmer the bengals got dre Kirkpatrick , Devon still and a second rounder this year.   that's just comical.  Ha ha.

    JBolted is on a suicide watch.  Somewhere.... under some beach debris.... wearing broken sunglasses...

    Remember those "Truner is a GREAT coach, and the best GM of all time made teh trade to get them there, and keep them there for 10 more seasons!" time? Better than reading M.A.S.H. !!

    Don't really understand this. Why not just fire them now or make the announcement at the end of the season?

     

    What's the point of telling them they're going to get fired at the end of the season and then let them work through the rest of the season?

    Norv will get another job though. He's a good offensive coordinator. His head coaching screams incompetence, but he can calls plays

    And Mark Sanchez the Chargers new QB as Rex Ryan trades Rivers to the Jets for Sanchez.  LOL, I don't know who would get the worst deal out of that.

    Re: A.J. Smith and Norv Turner to Get Axed

    Norv still coaches the Chargers? i thought he got fired in 2010. Seriously I never liked him as a head coach, but the fault remains with AJ. LT, Sproles, not having a back up plan for Marcus McNiel, Vincent Jackson, um Drew Brees anyone?  These were fails by the GM. He had to re-sign a few of these guys. I can see letting LT walk as he was on the decline but God the rest of these guys killed him. They are starting an undrafted rookie left tackle because they didn't sign Marcus and didn't replace him. Oh by the way moving up to get an injury prone Ryan Mathews is really paying off.....lol

    Chargers suk.

    AAAWWWW!!!

    Norv was special.  He was a horrid coach for the Raiders before he got fired.  The GM picked him up especially because he ran the same type of offense that San Diego's last coach ran.  Continuity doesn't appear to be a good substitute for talent.

    Norv gets a special place in my heart for trading that malcontent Randy Moss to the Patriots for a fourth round draft pick.  Then in Sandy Eggo either he and/or A.J. Smith traded next year's second rounder to the Patriots for this year's third rounder.  The third rounder was a waste.  The second rounder turned into Ron Brace, who at least is still here.
