Was Turner typically considered very conservative?  I didn't think that was his MO.  Underachieving yes, but conservative?

We could have had our Jim Harbaugh. It was a guy named Jim Harbaugh. He happened to be the guy that most people thought was the front runner for the Panthers job in 2011, but we never interviewed him. Turns out he wasn't willing to work for below league average salary. Oh well, I'm sure we'll do just as well with the guy we hire on the cheap.

Norv inherited a very stacked and talent-filled squad. Underachiever is not the word I would use to describe him.

see we're uh looking for a coach eager to uh prove himself that, you know, doesn't come in thinking he owns the place and deserves money like he's some kind of great coach.

 

also, re: Harbaugh, "Who?" - Jerry Richardson.

In case y'all have forgotten, JR supposedly wasn't behind the Rivera hiring. That was all Hurney.

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

I did a similar thread in the past. The OP is referring to both Rivera and Norv being laid back and well liked by the players, but ineffective leaders/motivators.

While true, they're also incompetent and crappy game planners.

Give that team to a Harbaugh, Parcells, or Cowher, they win the super bowl going away, They had the #1 rated defense and the #1 rated offense in the NFL that season. How do you NOT win the super bowl?


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 see your point...it was just worded poorly in the OP IMHO. My apologies.

 

No problem, bro.  I see your perspective as well.

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

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.
