Norv to Return to the NFC Beast?

Old Dallas coaches are on Jerry's mind and Norv is coming off a great season as SF OC. Could he be back?

Consider:

1. Has experience dealing with 2 of the worst owners in football (Al Davis being one of them), can certainly handle a 3rd

2. Has experience dealing with completely useless "superstar" WRs (Michael Westbrook) and Randy Moss in Oakland.

3. Has turned so-so RBs like Julius Jones into superstars (Stephen Davis)

4. Has dealt the Redskins many losses

5. Is willing to run half the team, leaving the other half to the DC as in SF


How can JJ say no?

yes because every head coaching job Norv has ever done has bombed in disaster

Re: Norv to Return to the NFC Beast?

I think he will receive strong consideration. Jones reportedly really regretted letting him get away.

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.

Well, he is good with developing QB's. I wouldn't be surprised if Norville got the nod. He is a lousy couch, but a very solid coordinator.

I love #4. Considering he dealt the Redskins most of these losses while he was head coach of the Redskins

Yea, he's pretty much the worst couch I've ever seen.

stevo395:

Are you old enough to remember Ray Handley?

How about Wayne Fontes?

Does the name Richie Kotite ring a bell?

Surely you recall Richie Pettibon, no?

Dave Campo?

Marion "Swamp Fox" Campbell?

Leeman Bennett?

Joe Kuharich?

Abe Gibron?


I will NOT try to say that Norv Turner is a good NFL head coach because his career says he is not. But the "worst"? I don't think so...

Norv was long gone when Dallas drafted Julius Jones.

Hey now, no swipes at Richie Pettibon! He did knock the snot out of the superbowl-bound Cowboys that year on MNF. He just struggled in the next 15 games. Yet another Superbowl QB -- Rich Gannon -- let that team. Imagine if Gibbs had stayed 4 more years with Gannon rather than Norv drafting Patrick Ramsey?
