Only a Huge Turnaround Will Save Turner From Being Fired

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, at this point, it is apparent only a drastic turnaround will save coach Norv Turner, as the Chargers have lost five straight and are in last place in the AFC West, in grave danger of missing the playoffs for a second straight season.

Spanos also has wondered about repeated game management decisions, and after five years it is possible Turner has been given enough time to get done what no Chargers coach ever has – win a Super Bowl.

After all, Marty Schottenheimer was fired after a 14-2 season, his departure coming in part because Spanos and Smith believed he had taken the team as far as he was capable.
