Default Win not expected to save Turner's job

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Chargers President Dean Spanos presented Norv Turner with a game ball after San Diego stunned the Steelers, its first regular-season victory in Pittsburgh in 15 tries.


That's the same Dean Spanos who is expected to fire Turner, most likely along with general manager A.J. Smith, shortly after this dismal season ends.


The 34-24 victory Sunday isn't expected to change anything, other than keep the Chargers mathematically, if not realistically, alive for a wild-card playoff berth at 5-8.


Turner tried to deflect talk of his future Monday, trying to keep the focus on the next opponent, Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers (4-9), who beat Atlanta 30-20 on Sunday.


''That's not the thing that's on my mind,'' Turner said about his job status. ''We're trying to get ready for Carolina and trying to build on what we did last week. That's where I'm at.''

Will three more wins and a possible PO spot save his job?

imo, that's all Norv or us fans have left to cling to.

When that shred of hope disappears, it's all over.

If he does get us to the playoffs against all odds we shall deem him the Norvinator. He'll be back.

It sounds crazy now but if Cincy, Pitt lose this week and we win we're back to where we were just a few weeks ago. We won't control our faith but will have some sort of realistic shot.

Never say never and it's not over until the Fat lady sings.

It sounds weird, but if we somehow do make it to the playoffs, then I think a few fans will be mad. I wouldn't know how to feel about it honestly.

I'll definitely feel conflicted.

But say we went 11-5 and made the playoffs, would there be an issue?

What's more important, reg. season wins or making the playoffs?

Ugh, makes my head hurt. ONE WIN. That's all these team needed was ONE win..NO, DEN, BALT, CIN...and they'd be in such better position.

I'm not going to be one of those people. It would be amazing if we made it in. I'm going to be so happy if it does happen.

If we went 11-5 nobody would have an issue. Its just that what if Dean does keep Norv? Would we have to go through the same mess again next year or would we get to the playoffs and unless we get a SB berth, Norv was guaranteed to be gone. And I know its maddening Al, we could have had all of those games.
