**** Norv 2

There wasn’t as much “Norv beat the Chargers” talk as I feared after Sunday’s game.  I did respond to a Tweet I saw by Merriman suggesting that Norv was doing a great job against his old team.  Norv had nothing to with that game.  No one has ever disputed that he’s a good coordinator.  He’s just a ****** coach.  The same can be said for Wade Phillips (who is once...
