I'd love it. Run an actual offense

Coming from someone with a gif of Cam running for a 72 yd TD against the Falcons.

I like your ideas

Man some of you have no clue ...

Why don't we bring back George Shiefert as movtivational speaker?

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.

More than one team of late has had a "run game coordinator" and a "passing game coordinator" (didn't Fox give McCoy that title?) And of course there's the ever popular "assistant head coach" title as well.

That said, while I wouldn't mind seeing some changes in the assistant lineup (would love to have Juan Castillo, Dave Toub or Bobby April on board) I tend to agree that if Rivera stays, hi staff will likely stay largely intact.

I like the idea, I didn't say it was realistic. You've embarrassed yourself.

Guy I don't doubt Rex Ryan as a DC

but he's a 3-4 guy and we don't have a 3-4 personnel sorry.

If Rivera stays, Chud stays.

Fug No!

"This is why I want us to fire Rivera, I don't want to become San Diego of the East."

Personally, I wouldn't mind being the "Chargers of the East." The San Diego Chargers under Norv Turner have done better then the Panthers have the last 5 seasons.

2007: 10-6 playoffs (Carolina 7-9)

2008: 8-8 playoffs (Carolina 12-4)

2009: 13-3 playoffs (Carolina 8-8)

2010: 9-7 (Carolina 2-14)

2011: 8-8 (Carolina 6-10)

Yeah, no way would the Panthers want to bring in someone who actually won 67% of their games over a 5-season stretch and going to the playoffs 3 times in 5 seasons....

Sure 2012 is gong to be bad for the Chargers, but what did you expect when the San Diego Union Tribune publishes an article saying Turner and GM A. J. Smith will both be fired after the season.

Wrong on so many points

tell me more about that, then, since it's not 'wrong'.

sure, I dig the split coordinator thing, and it's a way of making something happen. It props up the assistant head coach/experienced coach thing Rivera talked about last week. But Norv's not going to be a position coach and McCoy (or modern equivalent with Steve Wilks) had a position.

Definitely Bobbly April. Toub re-upped, and I don't see Lovie getting fired. I'd really rather not stay with Rodgers. I guess there's always Wannstedt if/when Chan goes (and Belin leaves for college, since he's been decent), but I don't really like Wannstedt much. Castillo would be very good - I still believe Rivera's recommendation may have led Castillo to be promoted, given its proximity to Reid offering up McDermott.

So, I don't know. It'd be interesting, but Norv seems like a longshot, and it's the same offense minus the stuff put in for Cam (which won't change, and doesn't need to change - it just needs less use).
