Question: Here we go again with Norv Turner being talked about as the best candidate for the Chargers. I hope the raise and the extension that the York's offered may keep him here one more year. What do you think?
- Jeremy, Citrus Heights
Answer: Well, as the Dallas Cowboys saga showed, Norv wants a lot of sway if he is to become a head coach again. The San Diego job certainly is attractive in terms of the talent level on that team. However, the front office situation seems like a headache. (See: A.J. Smith vs. Marty Schottenheimer). If Turner, who, by the way, flew to San Diego today, thinks there will be even a whiff of trouble in San Diego, I think he'll be more than happy to fall back on his San Francisco job.
