December 31st Winner: MIDAS 20874


In Response To: Is Norv Turner All That?

I agree with the sensible editors who applauded what Norv did this year. I would say Norv Turner did a tremendous job against all odds to take the Chargers to the palyoffs this year reagardless of the .500 mark. How about the way his team demolished the rival Broncos on Sunday night. There was no mistaken refree to bailout the Broncos from the 31-point loss and that has resulted in the firing of the longest tenured NFL coach in Mike Shanahan. How ironic?

I have always admired the offensive mind of Norv. How about the Cowboys last glorious years when he was the offensive coordinator? The last time the Redskins had a respectable season was in 1999 season when Norv won 10 games, NFC East champions and advanced to the semis of the Conference finals. The Oakland experience was a bad dream. I mean, how many coaches have won there since Jon Gruden left for Tampa in 2001?

Chargers may still lose to Payton Manning led Indy this wild card weekend. But with their win over the Colts in last year playoffs, homecourt advantage (I still wonder about that though. How come an 8-8 team which lost to the opponent during the regular season have an homecourt advantage over that opponent with an 11-5 record? It just does not make any sense to me. But then, many things do not these days... I digress), their late season resurgence and lack of running game by the colts; wonders may still happen.

Norv may not be enshrined in Canton after his career is over. But no one should doubt his offensive mind.
