Norv Turner will not be fired this season
Before I begin this article, let me start off by saying that this is based on my opinion and is not breaking news about San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner.
Turner should have been fired after last season because San Diego has not made the playoffs since 2009 and has not won a playoff game since the 2008 NFL season.
After San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers and other players lobbied for Turner to return in 2012, he was brought back for his sixth season with the team.
San Diego had a 3-2 record before their AFC West showdown with the Denver Broncos. The Lighting Bolts blew a 24-0 halftime lead and lost by a final score of 35-24 heading into their bye week.
This would have been a perfect time to get rid of Turner as San Diego fell to a 3-3 record after starting the season with a 2-0 record.
San Diego has a 4-5 record which is two games behind the AFC West leading Broncos and two games behind the Indianapolis Colts and the Pittsburgh Steelers who hold the two wild card spots with 6-3 records.
It would be pointless to fire Turner this season because if San Diego does not win against Denver on Sunday, their playoff chances will realistically be over.
San Diego’s playoff chances will realistically be over with a loss to Denver because San Diego’s record against teams that currently have winning records would be 0-4 with two games left against such teams after Sunday.
The Chargers also have a 0-3 record against teams from the NFC South with one game left after Sunday against a team from this division.
San Diego’s front office should wait and see because with a loss on Sunday, they would be too far into the season to bring in a new head coach with little hope of making the playoffs.
If San Diego does not make it to the Super Bowl, Turner should be fired and San Diego’s front office should bring in a new coach which would give him a fresh start next season.
