Time to Fire Norv Turner

After just four games, it has become apparent that the firing of Marty Shittenheimer and the hiring of Norv Turner was a huge mistake.

Four games of passionless, mistake-filled football is all I can take.

A turbo-charged offense that once ran so efficiently now runs like an '85 Yugo. An attacking defense that used to create havoc with opposing offenses, now plays passively and with no emotion.

Charger pride? This group (save LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates) has none. Philip Rivers who led the Bolts so confidently last season now plays like a frightened puppy.

Considering that over 95% of the players returned, what is the big change?

Well...that would be Norv Turner.

More later.
