I think Ron Rivera and Norv Turner are very much similar in various ways. Norv Turner Chargers are always notorious slow when starting out of the gate. The last two season with Rivera our team has started out very slow at the beginning of the season. The same thing can be said about the atrocious play calling and the mismanagement of the game involving the play clock and key game situations.

Rivera really reminds me a lot of Norv Turner. That is not good. Norv Turner is a great OC but not a great HC. I think the same can be said about Rivera and been a good DC.

Cam started the season with back to back 400+ yard games after the lock out and losing two LB's and his starting FA DT.

It's worrisome that RR was mentored by Norv. I hope he can rise above it.

We won 1 game after losing 5 in a row.

Can we wait a few weeks before we say Rivera has turned the season around?

casual relationship at best, not sure any real correlation can be drawn from it. too many different factors at play with both teams and far to small a sample size.

im pretty sure i remember him once saying that he was mentored by jim johsnon mostly, he didnt really need any mentoring with norv as he had full control of the defense by then. but the fact that he was under both andy reid's staff and norv's staff is pretty worrisome because those are two TERRIBLE head coaches to learn from in regards to clock management (im not aware of how good or bad lovie smith is in regards to clock management)

Yeah, on the defensive side of the ball, RR didn't need any mentoring by the time he reached San Diego, let alone by an offensive guy like Norv. I was talking more about how to be a head coach. Game management, how to run practices, dealing with players and management, etc.

I doubt Ron was thinking much about HC characteristics in Philly, as he was just getting started in coaching. After a year or two back in Chicago, he probably began to think more about it, but he wasn't Lovie's guy, so he may not have gotten much guidance from him.

I don't know. All of this is obviously just speculation. There is no doubt though that RR is learning on the job and he has seemed less prepared for the HC role than many coordinators that make the jump to the next level. Let's just hope he learns quickly enough that he can get things turned around the rest of the year.
