Intresting Norv Turner comment when asked about being a OC...

If Rivera can't even stand up to Chud, he's not going to be able to keep his former boss in check.

we can put Chud in his Ideal position again helping out with play calling

You must have missed the first 12 games if the season.

Am I missing something? Is there an Irish folk legend that if you gather enough losers, magical winning happens?

If you consider Norv Turner a hack at OC you should open a history book.

Took the previously dead last offense in the NFL to back to back Super Bowls.

.... if he was so dang good he'd still be with the skins...his stock is spiraling downward....

Indeed from his time as a WR Coach with the Ernie Zampese Rams to the Cowboys he's shown great abilities as an assistant Coach on Offense.

One thing for sure though, with the Redskins, Raiders and Chargers he aint HC material.

He was the skins HC, not OC. He's a good offensive mind, but a bad game manager. So it creates a cycle: He is great at OC, so he gets promoted to HC. He fails at HC, so ends up as an OC again. Then he impresses everyone again, so is promoted to HC. Then he fails at HC, so ends up as OC again.

Let's let him do for Cam what he did for Troy Aikmen.

Turner's saying he wants to run his offense. Coaches he knows, means he's familiar, that will want him for that, and not just "oh look I recognize this guy's name."

Dropping Chudzinski is not an option for Rivera. They're tied together, in essence, and Chud hasn't been that bad. Now, the idea of dropping him for Turner would be catastrophic - they're more or less the same in almost every facet, and they have a longer standing association than either do with Rivera. You don't fire one guy to pick up his friend.

If Norv becomes the OC, he would most likely be taking complete control of the offense with no input from Rivera at all. Which could be alright since it would free Rivera up to focus all on defense which is fine since he was one of the best DCs in the league. Might also, but unlikely, mean we have no use for McDermott anymore.

OC: Norv Turner

HC/DC: Ron Rivera

Wrong on so many points
