All you need to see how I feel about this is to look at my signature. That is all.

I'll believe it when I see it. Norv was SUPPOSED to be fired at the end of last season and we all know how that ended...

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

What makes people think Norv would WANT to come here? It's a long way from sunny southern California.

LOL, now Dean Spanos is trying to deny that Turner and Smith will be fired.

“There is only one person in this organization who will make those decisions and that’s me, and I haven’t shared my thoughts with anyone,” Spanos says. “I will make my evaluations at the end of the season. Anything coming out now — from sources or otherwise — is pure speculation.”

I have no choice but to believe him. You can't speculate on what egomaniacal owners will do.

Theres no way he doesn't fire Norv. 2 years in a row with no playoffs and now Manning is in the division, the team is getting worse and has had serious talent leave the franchise in the last couple of years.

They need to clean house.

Still can't see him coming here. Some poorly ran franchise will probably make him a HC...Panthers,Eagles,Chiefs,Browns,Jaguars, Bills?

I wonder who they'll hire as their new HC.
I have a guy who's been there before and knows the system. He won't dissapoint.
And his name is...
CAM CAMERON!

Rumor? -- This is an utmost certainty at this point.

Honestly, I'm on board the Norv Turner train. I think with Norv & Caldwell coaching up Joe he'd could easily become a more elite quarterback. Yeah, I said it... more elite.

He didn't deny it. He actually didn't refute it at all. He pretty much said "I make the decisions. But yeah i'm gonna fire him BUT NOT BECAUSE ANYONE TOLD ME TO".

I would give Turner a chance over Cameron. Sometimes you need a change of scenery. If I had to choose, though, it would be neither. I want to go to a WCO. I think it fits us better.

My thing is, I look at Jack Del Rio who became the Broncos defensive coordinator. The Broncos defense is better because of Rio being able to do what he does he best, be a defensive coordinator. Norv I believe is in the same situation, I think once Norv is fired and some team picks him up as OC(hopefully us) and Norv is able to go back to being just an offensive coordinator, he will make some team very happy. Again, hopefully us.
