For once, a team coached by Norv Turner is all screwed up and it isn’t really Norv’s fault. So the fall guy for the Chargers’ 3-5 start became defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell, who was fired today. The Bolts are 28th in the NFL in yards allowed and dead last in passing defense, while they’re second in the league in points scored.
Cottrell was the choice of GM A.J. Smith, who was responsible for pushing Marty Schottenheimer out after a 14-2 season. But his defenses were never good enough and Charger fans spent much of their free time calling for his ouster.
San Diego’s upset over the Colts is becoming a painful victory. First, LaDainian Tomlinson gets hurt. Then Philip Rivers. Now…A.J. Smith?
The SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE reports that the Chargers GM took a tumble while exiting his team’s transportation Sunday night. Smith was the first one off the bus, but he tripped & fell outside the front door and had to be helped up by a security guard.
Smith joked that he may have sprained his MCL, but told fans not to worry: “Me, being the athlete that I am, I got up fast. I don’t know if anyone saw me. With all those (TV) lights, you couldn’t see. I’m glad I landed on my bag or I’d probably still be on the ground.”
Had the Chargers continued their woeful season start - especially right after firing popular coach Marty Schottenheimer - many fans would have been more than happy to keep Smith on the ground - 6 feet under, to be exact.
NORV TURNER WILL BE BACK IN 2008 “NO MATTER WHAT“: Apparently looking to help San Diego Chargers fans firm up their travel plans for the weekend of February 3 (they’ll now be hosting the grandparents at Knott’s), a Chargers source told the SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE Sunday that Norv Turner will be back to coach the team in 2008.
The U-T quotes “a high-ranking club official with knowledge of team President Dean Spanos’ thinking” as saying that even if the Chargers lose their final four games of the season, “He’s going to be here no matter what. He was always going to be here no matter what.“Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith, who hired Turner “expressed surprise the coach’s status would even be questioned” and said, “if they know how we operate, this is not a one-year chase for the Super Bowl.”
