Chargers Unlikely To Fire Norv Turner During The Season

According to the Associated Press, the San Diego Chargers are unlikely to fire head coach Norv Turner during the season. Turner has once again come under criticism for the team’s up and down start to the 2012 season. The Chargers are currently 3-4, but this weekend’s loss to the Browns was fairly demoralizing.

  Chargers (4-4):   After a promising start in 2012 the Chargers have regressed into the mediocrity that plagued them exactly a year ago.

Shelley Adler got a few chuckles with her last ad when she made a metaphor to former Eagles Pro Bowl lineman and current South Jersey Congressman Jon Runyan “blocking legislation.”   In it, a Runyan a lookalike beat the crap out of old people.

Chargers Tear Through Cassel Walls, Leave Chiefs Looking Like a DoorMatt
