In Response to Norv Turner & AJ Smith fired...
[QUOTE]..better be the headline on Monday in SD. This a tired act to watch. NORV AFC Title game />1 playoff win over Peyton>playoffs, no win>9-7, no playoffs>this year 7-9. AJ alienate 2 all-pros (LT BigMac, WR Vincent Jackson) & poor recent drafts Enough already! This question needs to be answered. Who will coach the Bolts next year? My choice is Pete Charmichael or Chucky.

Bolt...the problems with the Chargers run deeper that the coach and/or the GM. The complete mentality of the team needs to be changed. The players on the Chargers, from Philip Rivers on down, accept losing. Accordingly, dropped passes, fumbles, stupid penalties, and mental mistakes are, and have been, accepted, as a normal consequence of playing the game.
The Chargers need butt-kicking, old fashioned, hard driving head coach.
When Vince Lombardi was hired by the Green Bay Packers, he stated something to the effect that, "I've never been associated with a loser...and I'm not going to start now. So, if you're not willing to do whatever it takes to win, get the hell out of here right now"
Lombardi went on to add, "gentlemen, we’re going to win some games. Do you know why? Because you are going to have confidence in me and my system. By being alert you are going to make fewer mistakes than your opponent. By working harder you are going to out-execute, out-block (and) out-tackle every team that comes your way.
"We are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence. I am not remotely interested in just being good."
