Chargers should have fired Norv last season.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
THANK GOD!! Good riddance to both of them. The most incompetent GM/HC combo in the NFL!
The Lord of No Rings gutted the talent on the Chargers. How do you fire a coach that went 14-2 and hire NORV FREAKIN' TURNER. Now all the Chargers need is a new owner because the Spanos are cheap.

Chip Kelly to the Chargers... If not him, David Shaw
While I hope Kelly leaves Oregon, I hope SD hires Gruden. Dude loves Rivers and they have a young and improving defense. Spanos may give him everything he wants in terms of control.

The GM ran off most of the good talent and a great coach. First it the GM inexplicable not talking to Marty, who went 14-2, ......then it was Breeze, then Sproles, LT, others, and most notably....Vincent Jackson. Countless drafts and trades that sucked. Honestly think Norv would have had a chance if the GM kept the talent.
Still can't believe they had a chance to get Clay Matthews and they settled for a Northern Illinois nobody.
On offense the Chargers need to revamp that OL and find some WR weapons for Rivers, release both Brown and and Battle and find a decent back up for Matthews, and start looking for a replacement for Gates because age is catching up to him.
On defense I think the DL is okay for now. Liguet and Reyes are young and both show promise. Need to let old man Spikes go and find a replacement in FA or in the draft. I think Phillips has a few good season left in him so keep him, let Johnson go, and make Ingram a starter because he's a baller. Jammer is obviously a shell of his former self and Cason hasn't lived up to his 1st round draft status so i say let both go and give Wright a shot. He definitely showed promise in preseason and I think he'll be a great replacement for Jammer. Find another CB in either FA or the draft as well as the S position too.
IMO the draft order should go.
If Lewan is gone by the time the Chargers pick then i say go ILB/OLB. I'm hoping we can get Lewan in the first and hope Chase Thomas falls to the second and pick him up as a replacement for Phillips if they decide to get rid of him.
This would be a good hire. Chargers, even with the Spanos family, is a better oppty IMO.
Will be interesting to see who Spanos targets as GM first--but Gruden would be great with that team, and as you mention, has a great relationship with Rivers.
Hopefully, this temporary unemployment line for the Charger staff, will steer Joey B back to USC...
