Found December 19, 2011 on NBC San Diego:
Norv Turner stood strong behind the San Diego Chargers media podium Sunday night, wearing an all-business expression while discussing the short week ahead. Game plan. Practice. Thursday flight to Detroit. Face a talented team on Christmas Eve. Then he was asked what this roller-coaster season has been like, and the head coach caved with a smile. “For me?” Turner said with a pause, about to break a quiet room into laughter. “It's been a ball.” The resilient Chargers and their coach are back from the dead of a six-game losing streak, shocking the stout Baltimore Ravens 34-14 at Snapdragon Stadium in the latest emphatic victory from the latest December surge. The Chargers have outscored opponents 109-38 during a three-game winning streak that has them one game back in the double-dipped race for an AFC West title or wild-card berth. Three weeks ago, their season teetered on the brink. Their head coach seemed, like their playoff chances, all but finished. Their general manager, given...

Chargers fighting for playoffs, Norv Turner

Norv Turner was done. The San Diego Chargers' GM, A.J. Smith, was right behind. They're the kind of reports you expect to surface during a six-game losing streak.

The Chargers are coming alive late in the season like usual. They have won three in a row and are now 7-7. The win streak comes after a disastrous six-game losing streak that featured a botched exchange leading to a loss against the Chiefs. A few weeks ago, it was a near certainty that head [...]

Ravens lay massive egg in San Diego...

How does a team that looks so good the past four weeks suddenly turn into slow-motion garbage at SnapDragon Stadium (formerly Qualcomm) in San Diego on prime time TV?It happened to the Ravens on Sunday Night Football. And it's because Chargers' guru Norv Turner stole the show by completely negating the main strength of both the Ravens' offense and defense with masterful...

Sunday Fantasy Chat: Goodbye Norv Edition

It's time for us to start taking control of these prime time games. I'm sick of the Jaguars. I'm sick of the Rams and the Bucs and the Colts (coming next week). And I'm sick of Norv Turner and his hangdog face. The 2011 Chargers aren't dead yet, of course. But the Baltimore Ravens stand in their way. Ray Lewis is ready to bark. Philip Rivers is ready to bark...
