Reid 3-8 so far this year, beat Cle,Balt, and NYG. Norv 4-7 beat KC (2),Oak, and Tenn. Why go through all the drama of getting a new coach. Fire AJ and keep Norv.

Norv should step down and be OC. Not likely. AJ needs to go first. How can you build a contender when you have no clue on how to put together a championship caliber oline?

Wade as DC and Norv as OC? We'd be really good.
I doubt Rex is getting fired, he has been dealt a bad hand in terms of personnel(the Jets are one of the least talented teams in the NFL IMO). Tannenbaum is likely toast though..........

He is not my first choice, but there are far worse choices then Andy Reid.
Big part of the Eagles success during that time was Jim Johnsons defense. No coinsidence that after Johnson died the Eagles went downhill fast. I got friends who are Eagle fans and they all tell me pretty much the same things we say about Norv(Undiciplined, poor execution, bad play calling and lots and lots of brain farts). Reid likes to throw the football (A Lot) I dont se how that would be a good fit for the Chargers. With all thats gone on with Reids personal life and how its ending in Philly I cant see why anyone would hire him right after being fired. If we're gonna go with a retread give me one thats won a SB

Reid would be an awful choice. They are the Chargers of the NFC... more talent on the field than their number of wins would indicate.

They've been a "Dream Team" two years running and they're a bigger joke than we are.

Which is exactly why I fear Dean will pick him. Barf, could you imagine an AJ Smith assembled team with an Andy Reid HC? We'd actually be a bigger laughing stock than we are today.

At its worst, it's a percentage bet. How many teams win the SB every year?

So, assuming Norv gets a job again, he's got 1/32 chance per year.

However, it seems unlikely he'd get a job with a SB caliber team (why would they be hiring?) so his chances are a little less.

Add to that that he'll constantly be looking for another chance to be a HC.

I'm just working percentages. I'd make the same bet about Belichick at this point.

So disappointed right now
dastardly! you tricked me into saying the offense was good last year...

i did just mean statistically they were a top 5 offense. Timing is everything. Chargers had/have poor timing...3 years running now.

Every time I see a "Breaking News" pop up on NFL Network, I am hoping it is Norv Turner's release. I doubt he is going to get fired at this point. Spanos said last year he doesn't believe in firing coaches mid season. So after 6 straight losses it's probably going to be the same.
