Kansas City Chiefs

His Chargers scored three touchdowns in a three-minute span of the fourth quarter en route to a 31-13 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night at Qualcomm Stadium. The Chiefs, meanwhile, did coach Romeo Crennel no favors. "I thought our guys did a great job coming back from Cleveland on a short week, zeroing in on what we had to do in terms of preparation for this game," Turner said. "I thought it was going to be the type of game it was -- a challenge in (our) division. We know each other extremely well. "Obviously, big plays we made defensively (keyed the win). We were able to turn the game the way it did." The victory snapped San Diego's three-game losing streak. Before the outburst in the fourth, the Chargers (4-4) had managed just one touchdown in nine quarters, which resulted in them being lusti...

Now that we are approximately at the midway point in the 2012 NFL season, there are several head coaches that are on the hot seat with his team’s respective management and owners. Some coaches have hotter seats than others. Listed below are some of the coaches that are in deep water up to this point in the season.

Week nine might shape up to be a halfway decent weekend of football. Don’t even bother watching tonight’s AFC West train-wreck. These two teams are becoming the laughing stock of the NFL and the losing coach literally might get fired on the way out of the stadium. If Norv Turner loses at home to the lowly Chiefs he has to get fired, right? We’re taking the Chargers -7. Yes...

Well, the Chiefs have still yet to hold a lead at any point in regulation this season. And neither Romeo Crennel nor Norv Turner were fired on the field during the first half. So little reason remains outside of direct rooting interest to tune into this game, yet the quality of the game hasn’t been anywhere as terrible as it could or deserves to be.

The streak has ended as I suspected it would. Last week was a weird week in the NFL and I expect this one to be strange as well.
Kansas City at San Diego
How the Chargers didn’t fire Norv Turner after losing to the Browns is beyond me. They are regressing. They haven’t scored a touchdown in 6 quarters. They aren’t even capitalizing on turnovers. They are dropping wide open...
