Unfortunately, Sonny didn't explain to Danny Boy that other attributes in addition to a "big arm" are necessary for NFL success as a QB. If a "big arm" guaranteed success all by itself, Jeff George would have at least 3 - if not 5 - Super Bowl rings by now.
Um, what does this all have to do with Norv Turner?

Re: Norv to Return to the NFC Beast?

Someone said earlier on that Norv drafted Ramsey. I believe my rendition of the facts leading up to the Ramsey acquisition are more accurate.

But I defer to either you or Matty as the official historians around here...

Hmm. Well Norv was long gone before Spurrier (then Ramsey) came along

Who knows, pair him with a top notch defensive coordinator... maybe someone also with some head coach experience, and maybe it could work. He is great with developing young QBs.
Turner had great success when they paired him with Ron Lynn and Mike Nolan. What world are you guys livin in, did you not see him for a head coach??? He was here 7 years to long. I hope the Cowboys hire him because at least we will be assured that the boys will not make the playoffs. He has done well at OC in SF, Miami, San Diego, and Dallas. But as a head coach he sucks. His record speaks for itself. JKC why did you ever bring him to DC is a question I always ask.

Re: Norv to Return to the NFC Beast?

I'm not saying he's ever going to be a good head coach I'm just trying to justify why the Cowboys would be interested in him.

His 7 year run here was about 3 years too long, but I would totally discount his time in Oakland. How any coach can win out there is beyond me.

I think his past history before coming here was enough to give him a chance as a head coach as he was very successful in Dallas. It is the amount of time he was here that I would question. I just hope he does not become one of those guys who failed here but then came back and kick our butts. That would really suck.
