High Praise for Turner

Posted by Ricky Henne on September 17, 2012 – 2:25 PM

In case you missed it, Peter King named Norv Turner his Coach of the Week following yesterday’s games.  Here is what he had to say.

This is Turner’s 15th season as a head coach. It is also his first 2-0 start.  Anyone else find that amazing? Turner has gotten Philip Rivers to play relaxed,  and without feeling he has to do everything by himself. With Turner’s defense  now in the hands of new coordinator John Pagano, the Chargers have held their  first two foes to 24 points. That’s what I call a terrific hire.

Read more about Turner and the Chargers in King’s complete article.

    i think norv is a good coach. and he is obviously easy to like
    on a personal level. i like the way he speaks.
    he isn’t egotistic(ryan) or loud and overbearing.
    he speaks positively while criticizing players in
    a constructive way. he isn’t a martinet, apparently
    assuming players will behave responsibly.
    so he needs players who are like that,
    which they seem to finally have.
    they look, health permitting, to be probably one of the top
    four teams in the conference, along with the pats,
    texans, and ravens.
    i’d like to see a san diego-san francisco super bowl.
    bolts 20-17, with kaeding redeeming himself.
    then norv breaks down at the news conference.
    it couldn’t happen to a nicer man.

    how does the fact that norv has been a head coach, but only had a two week winning record make him the coach of the week? Two early games should not be hard to win. The chargers have won plenty of early season games… get us to the show and follow through. That’s what we need. Come on Norv…Don’t choke like Kaeding.

    Norv is a quality person, that shines through in spades and is undisputable….one can just see it.

    To this week…….As a charger fan for 40 some odd years i hope Norv gets really mad this week as he prepares for Atlanta….I hope he and the entire team gets so mad they take this game really personal…because that is the energy they will need to win this week….this game will come down to who wants it most…. ….I like that line from the movie “Tombstone ” when Kurt Russell says ” tell em im comin and hell’s comin with me”…this week is going to be a street fight and I know we have the maturity this year in the room to prepare for it…. go get em guys.

    Just as players need to improve themselves, we do too as people. Norv is no exception. We have to admire and respect the fact that he (and AJ Smith) have! What an inspiring and solid example. I like the fact that Mr. Turner had praise for his players, yet talked about how they still need to keep improving week in and week out. I also like the fact that AJ talked about focusing on WINNINING one week at a time. Keep it up! That’s the mindset we need to have. Absolutely. Leadership comes from the top and the players will follow.

    I’m glad to see the Bolts playing so well. They still need a few tweeks here and there but overall we have played well so far. I am glad to see Norv playing Battle more. The guy is a power runner, he will soften up defenses and Mathews will be able to rip off some long runs. Good to Rosario fill in for Gates too. Now if Meachum and Rivers can start connecting things will get really interesting.
