Turner has let Tomlinson loose and the Chargers have flourished

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Maybe Norv Turner the head NFL coach is finally getting it. Maybe, just, maybe he has figured out what he needs to do.

Get out of the way.

The Chargers have a chance if Turner simply turns his team over to his players. This doesn’t work often in the NFL. But most teams don’t have the talent the Chargers do. So, Turner needs to stop thinking and just let his players go, starting, of course, with running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

In the past two weeks, Turner has let Tomlinson lose and the Chargers have flourished. After almost coming to tears after the Chargers lost their third straight to fall to 1-3 a couple of weeks ago, Tomlinson is back to his cheery, dominating, NFL MVP-self. And he should be. He’s getting the rock.

There was no person in the entire NFL who was more on the hot seat than Turner. Especially after the Chargers went 14-2 last year before Marty Schottenheimer was shown the door after another early-playoff exit. A head coaching failure in Washington and in Oakland, Turner was handed the keys to the Porsche of NFL offensive units. A fine offensive coordinator, the thought in San Diego was that Turner couldn’t mess up a good thing.

But in the first quarter of the season, he did, leading the Chargers to one more loss than they suffered last season. But it seems that Turner has finally come to his sense and is jamming Tomlinson down opponents’ throats.

That’s the way the Chargers have won in the past and that’s the way they will win in the future.

Turner is a passer’s coach. :doh: He made Troy Aikman a star. He doesn’t need to make Philip Rivers a star. Tomlinson is the man in San Diego. Rivers will be just fine getting his 200 passing yards a game and the Chargers can run away with the AFC West.

Tomlinson makes the entire team, including the defense better. Now, that you figured that out, Norv, keep it up.

Keep giving No. 21 the rock and you may keep your job.

The funny part is now that they've won two, Norv will break the fans' hearts when they least expect it.

Somehow, some way, this season will end badly for the Chargers.

That's money.

Indeed it is. The moment they announced Norvulous as HC I felt sorry for the San Diego fans. They were so close last year!:(

I wonder if it will come down in Oakland, and all they have to do is win and their in the playoffs. :laugh: No way this team should be just at .500. That's Norvulous for you :laugh:
