Ron Rivera: Norv Turner Clone?

Recommended Posts

Harbaugh hasn't won jack poo and lost with two teams far superior to any of those SD teams.

The love that lunatic gets around here is absurd.

 

 

 

I really try to respect your opinion, but to say that Harbaugh has not won "jack poo" (conference championship) in his first 2 years in the NFL is simply not accurate.  Nor is your supposition that the 2009 Chargers were inferior.  DId you read the part about being the #1 ranked defense and the #1 ranked offense in the NFL in 2009?  Nobody gets better than that.  

 

Finally, I am not loving Harbaugh, I am loving the fire he brought to SF. The aggressive swagger that was not there before he arrived.  The ability to get the most out of the team's most important position and win about 75% of his games.   If you want to criticize him for not winning a Super Bowl during his first 2 years in the league, go for it.

The ignorance on this forum is amazing. Norv Turner has never been a DC for any NFL team.

rivera isn't fit to whiff norv's jock strap.

 

 

Everyone forgets that Norv went to the AFC championship game, and also how stacked the AFC was at the top back then.

 

Pats, Baltimore, Indy, Pitt, you had to go through two all time great QB's and 2 all time great D's to get to the Super Bowl.

 

Norv beat the Peyton led Colts twice in the playoffs.

 

Norv should have been gone before last year, but let's not even compare the two coaches.

Guys might wanna keep in mind that any successes you cite for Turner from 2007 to 2010 occurred with Ron on his staff. That may affect the strength of your argument.

As to the thread premise, I'd compare Ron to a hybrid of Turner and Singletary.

Cmon man Norv coached multiple winning teams and almost made a Super Bowl. Once again, MUCH better coach. Ron Rivera is in a class all of his own.  There is no comp

 

Norv was dealt a dream hand and did nothing with it.  Again, he had the #1 Defense and the #1 offense in the NFL at the same time.  How do you not go to the super bowl?  How do you not win it?

 

Norv sucked.

Norv has forever been one of those 'great coordinator / lousy head coach' types. Singletary was too.

Sadly, I suspect that may be Rivera as well :(

Norv turned it around the last couple years, starting off well then crashing towards the end.  at least thats what my horrible memory is telling me.

 

I remember he was expected to be fired and was not for 2 years.  Everyone thiought he had pictures of someone.

Well at least Norv has actually had a winning season.

 

 

Something that  I can't see happening to a team with Rivera as HC....He may have a future as a DC in the NFL but I can't see him being HC again.

Looks to me like we need to hire Norv Turner. He's better than Rivera, at least at getting to the playoffs.

 

He inherited a team that was stacked.  Of course they went to the playoffs-they were in the AFC West when everyone else sucked.  Not winning a super bowl bid was a crime against the citizens of SD.
