When you have Aikman, Smith, Irvin an outstanding O'line you look like a great play caller, those same plays aren't looking that good with this years Charger's team.

i'd like to see meach and royal on a decently run offense. would be a different story, IMHO.

I'd love to see us run the dink and dunk offense, with lots of slants and quick screens.

Put Royal in the slot, and I'll bet he could get us alot of yards that way.

Meacham was supposed to stretch the field, and that hasn't worked out. Thankfully, DX has stepped up, as a compliment to Floyd.

Its unlikely they finish 5-0, which is what the need to do.
I don't see its AJ Smith or talent. Even with some of his picks getting injured.
I see us trying to win with a HC that is Xs and Os. What about team?
The HC needs to team build, bring a group of guys together. Get them to play fundamentally sound. So that they can successfully execute the Xs and Os.
Norv calls great plays, but the execution is lacking because they are not playing fundamentally sound. Rivers thinks he has to do it all and tries to force too many throws. And Mathews needs to be featured when he is suited up on gameday. None of this happens. Its because thats not what our HC does, he does Xs and Os.

the only great thing about calling it quickly on Norv is we have first dibs on the best coordinators and college HC's. No teams have fired their coach. If we fire Norv, we stick to the same scheme by promoting from within and start our interviews. The day after the season is finished, name our new HC and we SHOULD have the pick of the pool. We can then have an early jump on naming coordinators, which are the secret to successful teams.

And if we can somehow land a decent coach (like the dude in my sig!)
It will be easier to get that hotshot OC/DC/ST guy... In spite of AJ keeping his job.

I do agree his decision making and mental mistakes have been awful of late, the turnovers are killers but little things like delays of game are literally making the offense almost unwatchable to. The very fact Norv and PR both can't catch the playclock and call a Timeout before it expires is baffling. That alone screams new leadership to me.

I would like to see what a new head coach, with better pass protection could do for PR. If we don't see improvement then by all means time to go a different direction at QB.
I'm talking about being a guy you can count on to take a game on over and win it, a guy you can count on to bring you back from behind when the game is on the line and I have 0 confidence in him to do that now. He hasn't done anything like that in years to be honest and I know I'm probably the only one here who thinks this but playing in that AFC title game on one leg was selfish and shouldn't have been allowed. There is no way Rivers on one leg is better than Volek on two healthy legs, we scored 0 touchdowns in that game, I'm sure Volek could have gone the whole game without throwing a TD pass too and likely would have been able to be more dynamic in that game. It made no sense to me at the time and it still doesn't, I blame the coach for allowing that more than Rivers for doing it though.

I've got your back on all of the above. But also note that Norv could have (and should have, seeing as it was his job, and all) added some sanity to that situation.

Oh no doubt, that's why I said it's on the coach for allowing it to happen to begin with. Sometimes guys say they are "doing it for the team" but it also can come across like trying to be a glory hound. People need to be smart in situations like that not just go with their emotions. I'm not saying that we would have won had the back up started but I do think we'd have had a better shot at it. Also wasn't happy that Kaeding was doing the kick offs, he had a cracked bone in his leg and his kick offs were short but they cut the other kicker we had at the time to bring Lorenzo Neal back who was IMO also rushing back from an injury.

So Andy Reid is the solution? AJ stays and we bring in Reid. Oh, boy the fans will go crazy.
