View Full Version : Football AFC West Coaches - A Rundown


Buck

Denver Broncos - Josh McDaniels:

Rookie Head Coach, 32 years old. Alienated his pro-bowl caliber starting QB, which in turn has pissed off his #1 WR. Has made somewhat of a mockery of his team in the short time he's been there.


Kansas City Chiefs - Todd Haley:

Don't know much about him other than that he too is a rookie head coach, and he's making his players earn a roster spot. According to many hes a "mf'n prick."


Oakland Raiders - Tom Cable:

Punched his assistant coach in the head. Nuff said. He's pretty much Al Davis' marionette.


San Diego Chargers - Norv Turner:

Known to make talented teams bad, yet he has had good playoff luck in the last 2 years. If anyone told you five years ago that Norv Turner would be the best coach in the AFC west, you would probably have laughed in their face, or kicked them in there balls.

If the Chiefs win more than 6 games this year, I'm ready to go ahead and claim Haley as the best coach in the division.

San Diego is a top 5 team in the NFL in terms of talent. There's no absolutely no good reason why they should be posting 8-8 seasons at this point.

Even though he's never coached a game, I'd still take Haley over Clueless Norv. Haley's got the proper attitude (like Parcells and Belichick). Norv manages occasionally not to trip over his own shoelaces. He's one of those "better as a coordinator" guys, IMO. I don't think the Chargers will ever be a threat as long as he's there, so I hope he's there a long time...

I don't buy that.

Against Pittsburgh or New England the past few years?

Especially considering Merriman & LT were injured and not playing?

San Diego's biggest mistake last year was letting Michael Turner go for free and keeping LT.

If Turner was retained, the Chargers would have had a better shot at the Super Bowl and beating Pittsburgh in the playoffs.

While true, if Norv coached the Chargers during the Vermeil/Shanahan era, the Chargers wouldn't even make the playoffs. Keep in mind that the Chiefs or Broncos continued to miss the playoffs despite having 8+ win seasons.

The Chargers barely squeeze into the playoffs with arguably the worst division in football under Norv. I find it hard to believe they could get in at all if the division was more competitive, which it won't be for the third year straight.

Buckin's merely rubbing your noses in it and inciting a riot by saying Norv is the best coach in the division.
At this point there's no possible way for any Donk, Tard or Chef fan to put together a detailed argument supporting the fact that Norv isn't the best coach in the division.
As OC for Dallas he's got the rings. Working for Snyder and Al Davis as a HC he fell on his ass just as all of his predecessors did (including Farty).
In SD, he's pushed the team further than Farty ever did when it counted.

This is a Go Chargers thread unless anyone can come up with a valid argument for the Chefs coach (you know, ole what's his face).

The man's been a hugely successful OC wherever he's gone. His Hiring as HC (after Farty was fired and Wade and Cam left) was for the purpose of continuity for the Offense.
Norv is an OC who reports back to AJ Smith in regards to the D while handling the day to day minutia of being an HC.
Everyone on the team knows he's in control despite the fact he hasn't punched anybody.

No coach can predict injuries. Gates, Merriman and LT are the biggest impact players on the team and they have all been injured when it mattered most. After them the list goes on and on.
Going through the Leaf years and the ensuing 10 year dent he caused in any progress, I feel good about where the team is right now.
Saying Norv ran LT into the ground when he was injured on a tackle in the end zone in week 2 (in the Hochuli loss) doesn't cut it as a valid argument against Norv as a coach.

Buckin's merely rubbing your noses in it and inciting a riot by saying Norv is the best coach in the division.
At this point there's no possible way for any Donk, Tard or Chef fan to put together a detailed argument supporting the fact that Norv isn't the best coach in the division.
As OC for Dallas he's got the rings. Working for Snyder and Al Davis as a HC he fell on his ass just as all of his predecessors did (including Farty).
In SD, he's pushed the team further than Farty ever did when it counted.

This is a Go Chargers thread unless anyone can come up with a valid argument for the Chefs coach (you know, ole what's his face).

Oh come on.

To suggest that Marty failed in Washington is disingenuous at best, and and stupidity at it's finest.

He took a team that lacked discipline and focus, that played soft and instilled some toughness.

They started out slow and finished strong in his one season.

He wouldn't allow himself to be Daniel Snyder's puppet, so he was let go before he had the chance to fail.

Speaking of lacking discipline and focus, that is exactly the reason that Norv Turner fails as a coach.

His teams all share those qualities, which is the reason he has a losing record as a HC in this league.

Marty is a suckass playoff coach, but Turner has taken over a supremely talented Charger team and led them to two seasons of underachieving, going 18-14 in two seasons in the weakest divison in football.

They've won in the playoffs, sure, but in the end, they have still failed to advance to the SB.

And you are actually happy to have a coach that you admit is nothing more than a puppet?

You are a fucking idiot.

I use the term puppet to mean that Norv is working for AJ. He's on board with the whole philosophy and isn't trying to make power grabs by having a say in personnel.
The combination of losing in the playoffs and not playing into AJís philosophy are what got Marty fired.
These arenít High School kids weíre talking about here (even though some may act like it). Martyís stupid ďGleamĒ speeches will wear on a team to the point where they become ineffective late in the season and thatís when Martyís lack of ability as a Coach, (decision maker), is always exposed.
If I were a Lion or Chief fan, I would be happy to have Marty as coach but while Marty may be able to help make a shitty team good, he canít make a good team great.
If Iím a ****ing idiot for preferring to have a coach that gets his teams to win when it counts rather than having a gaudy regular season record and losing every single time it counts, well then so be it.
IMO, you sir, are the ****ing idiot for not being able to see Martyís faults when they stare you right in the face.

How is the assertion that Marty was fired in Washington absurd? Was it justified? Not according to what was going happening on the field. Regardless, Snyder had a hand in his firing and when you have an owner that impedes your success you're bound to fail. As was the case for Norv in Was and Chokeland.
I'm not saying it was entirely the Owner's fault I just saying they hampered his success.

This is what you said:

He got fired, yes, but he didn't "fall on his ass".
He was making progress in transitiong that team from a soft, undisciplined team that he inherited from Norv.

Now, we both know that he would have fallen on his ass when he did get that team to the playoffs, but falling on his ass is a ridculous claim in that situation.

Ther can be no argument made for any of the other coaches in the division as "best coach", but to argue that Norv Turner is the best coach in the division simply because he's the only coach that has been a head coach previously is also beyond fucking stupid also.

What we have are three untested coaches, and one sub .500 career coach.

He sucks ass out loud, and it's only a matter of time before his ass sucking becomes so loud that AJ will have to fire him.

Look at what McDaniels has done to the Donks in his short time there.
Cable punched his Assistant coach (doesn't seem like a veteran coaching move).
Haley will need time for his players to get used to his more abrasive style of coaching.
I don't expect anyone of them to set the world on fire this season. A couple of years from now, with some experience and better players, they may become successful.
To say that experience and stability doesn't play a major role in coaching is asinine.
There are extenuating circumstances around why Norv is sub .500 in the regular season but it doesn't matter because he's above .500 in the regular season and, more importantly, the playoffs with the Chargers.
Going into this season, the Chargers are in the best shape in terms of coaching.
As for this whole Marty thing - When someone's fired, the perception is that they didn't live up to their bosses expectations, thus, "fell on their ass". Norv went to the playoffs with the Skins, the team talent fell off, they started to lose and that's when you bring in a Marty.
Norv's biggest hit to his regular season record came while he was with the Turds. Vince ****ing Lombardi couldn't save the Turds.

No one said that experience and stability isn't important.

But it doesn't make a whole lot of difference when you suck ass.
And Norv Turner sucks ass.

He will fail, eventually.

I personally think Ron Rivera will save his ass this season, but sooner, rather than later, his lack of leadership, which is illustrated by the fact that he's been a puppet wherever he's been, will lose him that locker room.

And you go ahead and make up your own perceptions.

The rest of us know that that perception is just fantasy of yours to make yourself feel better about having a suckass coach.

How do you define leadership? Did Marty's "Gleam" speeches make him a good leader? Motivator, sure, but leader? Marty made stoopid decisions at key moments and thatís what makes him a shitty leader.
Is Belicheat a good leader? He can't be because he doesn't use the word "Gleam".
I'm going to stop insulting your intelligence and say that Norv is doing his job and he's doing it well. He needs to be an OC and make the key decisions for the team. The role of motivator is way down the list.

Leadership is hard to define.

But simply stated, a leader commands respect.

Norv doesn't.

As for Rivera, here's a guy that grew up playing LB in Buddy Ryan's 46 defense.
He cut his teeth as a LB coach in Jim Johnson's blitz happy defense in Philly.

He took over as DC in Chicago and they were a top 5 defense, something they weren't before he goty there, and haven't been since.

He bided his time as the LB coach for the Chargers, but when he took over mid season last year after Ted Cottrell was fired, that defense stepped up and played the way they were capable of playing.

I think the players respect Norv and there haven't been any situations where any player has called him out. You just don't like his neck.
Rivera has great experience but, in Chicago, Lovie had alot to do with the defensive scheme and playcalling so this season will be his first where he can show off his own schemes and philosophies. He's got a great background and did a good job using Fat Teddy's playbook last season so I'm sure he'll be fine.

This is as far as I'm going with this debate.

But when I've watched players talk about coaches they really respect, you can sense the respect they have.

It's not the "He's my coach, so I'm doing what he asks of me" kind of responses you get.

The fact that his players aren't taking shots at him doesn't necessarily equal respect.

Hell, I think they like him, but I just don't sense the kind of respect that BB has with his players, that Parcells had, even what Coughlin has with the Giants.

Well, thatís your perception, BB and Parcells have personnel control so the players may fear them more. So maybe youíre just not seeing the fear in the players eyes.

Someone should tell Jerry Rice to shut up then.


People in this sport, like most businesses, are pussies and don't want to burn bridges (One reason I've always said that the internet is a far more honest medium than face to face communication. The anonymity allows people to be the jerks they truly are, rather than just lie to your face). You rarely get honest answers in football these days, because we punish so severely those that try to be honest. If an active player actually let it be known they disrespect their coach, all they get is trouble for it. They're not going to tell you an honest answer, either way, when their paycheck is riding on it. They're going to give you the "right answer" to the weasel quiz and save themselves the hassle.

Instead, they all write books after they retire. :D

Denver Broncos - Josh McDaniels:

Rookie Head Coach, 32 years old. Alienated his pro-bowl caliber starting QB, which in turn has pissed off his #1 WR. Has made somewhat of a mockery of his team in the short time he's been there.


Kansas City Chiefs - Todd Haley:

Don't know much about him other than that he too is a rookie head coach, and he's making his players earn a roster spot. According to many hes a "mf'n prick."


Oakland Raiders - Tom Cable:

Punched his assistant coach in the head. Nuff said. He's pretty much Al Davis' marionette.


San Diego Chargers - Norv Turner:

Known to make talented teams bad, yet he has had good playoff luck in the last 2 years. If anyone told you five years ago that Norv Turner would be the best coach in the AFC west, you would probably have laughed in their face, or kicked them in there balls.


Sorry if repost.

If anyone told me today that Norv Turner is the best coach in the AFC West I would think they are high. Even according to your own analysis, Haley is the only one without a knock against him, unless of course you're a puss and the fact that the coach is a mfnprick makes your vag hurts so you know he's a bad coach. Oh ,and you throw an nfl ball 50+? come on naaaaa???
