Rant My Life: San Diego Chargers Should Just Part Ways With Norv Turner Now
It’s been a common theme for the San Diego Chargers over the last three years where expectations are high at the beginning of the season–only to lead to nothing but disappointment when the regular season comes to an end. As the team prepares for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the organization announced their plans this week to part ways with Norv Turner at the end of the season–but why not just deal with this situation now and go their separate ways with the head coach?
Not only is San Diego 4-8 on the season heading into Sunday, but they’ve lost seven of their last eight games. On paper, there’s no question the Chargers had what it takes to at least compete with the Denver Broncos in the AFC West and this year has drawn even more questions about whether or not Philip Rivers deserves to be in the category of elite quarterbacks considering he’s only thrown 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions through the first 12 games.
With the way things have turned out this season, why wouldn’t San Diego just part ways with Turner now instead of letting him coach the remaining four games of the regular season? It’s not like the Chargers are going to turn things around for the final four weeks and re-consider giving Turner one final shot after missing out on the playoffs for three-straight seasons–so the smart move would be to just part ways with him now.
