Might accept this if so many other of Norv's players hadn't said the exact same thing about him.

I don't know how it went in oak town and wash. Marty was hated by a lot of vets in Washington. Especially Darrell green. Regardless, I remember weddle, rivers gates and jammer crying or near tears when norv was canned. Norv is known as a players coach. I know sapp and rice called him out for his practices but not his connectivity toward his players.

Also remember trotter reporting in 05 that players tended to roll their eyes during Marty's fire and brimstone speeches.

Anyhow, I know you love to hate norv so have at it.

Mark Schlereth, Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp, Dana Stubblefield, LoNeal, the list goes on of players who have expressed anti-Norv sentiment. Brian Mitchell was quoted as saying what LT said almost verbatim (re: questioning his leadership.)

I think Nick Hardwick was one of the players mentioned by Trotter as rolling his eyes during Marty's speeches. Hardwick has since stated that the team would have won a SB had Marty stayed.

Anyhow, I know you love to defend Norv and his sub-.500 career record (despite having 6 years with a team already built for him before he got here) so have at it.

In 2008 and 2009 the Chargers became more of Rivers team. Norv transformed the team from being a running team to being a passing team. LT was on the decline during his last two years with the team.

soooo true. LT the Jet was even worse than LT the analyst (in terms of shooting his mouth off about the chargers). doesn't this guy stop to think that SD is the town that will celebrate his career and invite him to stuff?

I saw him on a post-game show on the NFL network sunday night and it was unwatchable.

News to espn and nfl network: just because a guy was great on the field, does not qualify him to be a good analyst on TV. That show with Berman on espn is a circus at this point. just fire them all and put 2 guys together that know what they are talking about, and have reasonably mastered the english language. done.

Not sure if we would have won. In 06 we blew the game against New England with stupid mistakes and dumb 2nd half play calling. 06-07 were our best Championship chances of the last 20 years. The organization failed to build on those successes by making bad personel decisions in the following years.

More sour grapes from LT.

Guy should just let it go. Every time he says something like this, he tarnishes his image a little more.

Maybe the reporter should have come back at him with "And if the Chargers had had Michael Turner in the backfield instead of you in 2009, maybe he would have gained more than just 24 yards rushing and you would have beaten the Jets."
