There comes a time in every coach’s career where they either can get the job done or they can’t. For Norv Turner, 2012 will be his last chance to show that he can get the job done. He has been given too many chances, and now he may face his biggest test.
The entire AFC West improved this offseason and it will take a better record than just 8-8 to win the division title. The Chargers must play a full season of football in 2012.
They cannot afford to take weeks off like they have throughout the Norv Turner era. If they do this, they will miss the playoffs and, as the players clean out their lockers, Turner will be left clearing out his office.
It time for the Turner to prove to every one of his critics that he can get the job done and finally take the Chargers back to the playoffs, something he did in his first three years with the team.
If he fails to put the Chargers into the playoffs, Norv Turner will be gone.
To say Norv Turner's seat is hot is an understatement. It’s blistering.
