The Chargers looked completely unprepared in the second half against the Broncos, and the Chargers' poor execution led to them getting overwhelmed in every phase of the game.
The Broncos made effective adjustments at halftime to keep the Chargers on their heels. Turner did nothing to combat the Broncos' adjustments, and he sat by idly as Philip Rivers continued to make deep drops in the pocket and reel off ill-advised throw after ill-advised throw.
Rivers should shoulder much of the blame for Monday's loss, but Turner deserves to be lambasted as well.
Following the loss, Turner said, “If you want to make this about somebody. It's not about one of the guys in there. Make it about me.”
Chargers' fans wanted Turner gone after yet another disappointing season in 2011, but Dean Spanos retained Turner to maintain continuity on an aging team.
There's no doubt that Turner is once again on the hot seat, and the only thing that will get him off is if he can manage to win the AFC West and go deep into the playoffs.
It's still early in the season, so any team is capable of finishing the season strong.
However, Chargers' fans have little confidence in Turner due to his past mistakes.
Therefore, it might be time to take a look at the potential candidates that could replace Turner down the road.
Let's take a look at four coaches that might fit in well in San Diego.
