Dean Spanos, You Are A Disgrace

At this point, it's not even about whether Norv Turner gets fired.  But this "will they/won't they" soap opera is pathetic.  First it was "No playoffs, no Norv."  Then it was about whether they won their last 5 games.  Then it was "Detroit will decide his fate."  I would have rooted against winning at Oakland if I thought for one second...
