San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers made an appearance on XX Sports Radio in San Diego with Darren Smith and discussed by head coach Norv Turner shouldn’t be fired, no matter what the outcome of the season is.
“We expect to go win these next two and see what happens, but whatever happens, that’s the way I feel. That six-game losing streak, all the turnovers, all the injuries, all the things that were going on — those aren’t excuses — but had we been getting beat 38-10 and 28-3 and can’t get a first down, maybe it’s a little more fair. We had a chance to win every single game. … I know it’s about winning and losing, but I think Norv and his staff did an excellent job of keeping us in every game. … We’ve won 48 games the last five years. That’s a lot of football games and I think Norv’s done an excellent job.”
Rivers makes a solid point, but let’s be honest, Turner and the Chargers should have been dominating the AFC West over the past few seasons. But instead they’ve always managed to get by.
This season the Chargers actually had some competition with the Raiders and Broncos elevating their play within the division. Now the Chargers might end up missing the playoffs.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
