Out with the old, in with the…well…old

Everyone knows Mart Schottenheimer was fired in San Diego not so very long ago, and today Jay Glazer at Fox broke the story that the Chargers hired Norv Turner to replace him. I’m not going to dispute the fact that Norv Turner is one of the better offensive minds in football, and he’s helped Alex Smith do a 180 from last season, but let’s not fool ourselves: he’s not head coach material. He bombed in Oakland. He bombed in Washington. Norval Turner simply isn’t a good head coach in the National Football League, and with the array of options the Chargers had available to them, it’s beyond me why they would set themselves three years back with a hire like this. Fans of the other three AFC West teams should be very, very happy.
