The San Diego Chargers dropped to a game under .500 after losing to the Cleveland Browns 7-6 on the road Sunday, and many fans are not happy with the team. Minutes after the Chargers lost, the hashtag “#FireNorv” was trending nationally on Twitter. The names of football players, coaches, and teams frequently trend during NFL Sundays, but it likely took thousands of tweets with the “FireNorv” hashtag to get the term trending. Norv Turner is in his sixth season as head coach of the Chargers, and many have felt for years that the team has underachieved during his tenure. The Chargers went 9-7 two years ago, 8-8 a season ago, and are now 3-4. They haven’t made the postseason since 2009, and the calls for Turner to lose his job have been going on longer than that. San Diego blew a 24-0 lead against the Denver Broncos on “Monday Night Football” and had the bye week to prepare for their Week 8 game in Cleveland. They only managed six points against a team that had been 1-6 entering the game and ranked 23rd in points allowed. The poor performance was inexcusable, and it’s quite understandable why Chargers fans would have been fed up with the team after Sunday’s loss. We’ve felt that Norv Turner never should have been hired by San Diego in the first place, and therefore that he should have been canned years ago. Hopefully Chargers ownership will realize that and can Turner — and possibly GM A.J. Smith — before much longer.
