The Turners and Cleveland? Perhaps not

We've all heard the speculation surrounding Norv and especially with his son following Chud to Cleveland. We know that Norv is on vacation Ian Hawaii and is contemplating his next move very carefully. As reported by ESPN his potential landing spots are numerous. I is believed by many that the younger Turner is going with Chud to Cleveland, although I have not heard this from the team or anything in black and white even guaranteeing as much. It's just believed...

Let me propose an off the wall scenario though. It may sound crazy, but this could happen.

Say this... Say they (Cleveland) bring Norv in for an interview or what not... What's to say that he takes the job? (Here it comes) what if* he decides that his very own son should have the job? I mean... The younger Turner has been an assistant at various places for years... What if his dad decides that he doesn't want to be in Cleveland because it could actually hinder his sons career? I know it sounds crazy... And it could end up going the opposite way with Turner mentoring his son right there in the booth for a couple of years before the younger Turner is "ready"

My questions are:

Is the younger Turner really going to Cleveland?

Could we hire him as our OC? And possibly get Norv as well?

I've been a proponent of hiring Norv as OC since week 6 when the speculation of Norv being fired arose. I started this whole push for Norv way back then as most of you will remember. <---- that's not important, but I really think that NoRv would be a great fit here...

It seems as though at least through the initial reports that this wont be an option for us... But I sure do wish that we could get Norv obviously.

Ay ties between Gettleman and Norv? I know there's lots of ties with Ron/Norv/Chud

I'm just as curious and as anxious as anyone here to get some finality to all of this... Only because I'm not a very patient person. I just figure the sooner the better...

So what do you guys think about what I threw out there? I say very slim chance we get Norv.... But I sure do want him.

Anyways, that's all I got for now

That's why I'm so pissed an inferior site dumped off PantherTrain on us. We already had TCF. Now we have two bi-polar nonsensical thread starters.

Has the young Turner ever called plays before? I don't even know that he's been a position coach, just a quality control coach. I don't think anybody is going ot make him a coordinator right now.

I don't think he's ready yet... But he's been an Assistant to Chud for years, so he could be. At what point would he be ready? This is something that I admittedly lack the knowledge on. Common sense says that someone will give him a shot at OC eventually... Isn't that how every coach gets his start?

I just really want Norv

Young Turner is Chudz right hand man... Putting him as the OC is too much too soon. I see Young Turner definitely going to Cleveland. As for Norv I have no idea because Chud himself said "If I don't feel comfortable letting someone else call the plays... I'll call the plays" honestly I don't see Norv going to Cleveland just to sit there so.....

A lot of NFL offensive coordinators will have had time calling plays before as a college coordinator or head coach. Otherwise, they are usually respected position coaches that are considered up and comers (Mike McCoy) or long time guys that have a lot of time in the pro game. I just don't know that Turner has anything along those lines, so it would be an odd hire for somebody.
