Exactly.

So which is it? Are Turner’s Chargers a scrappy, resilient bunch who refused to quit at 4-8, rallied around their coach and stared failure down ... or a deeply talented bunch of underachievers, two years removed from 14-2, backing into the playoffs against all historic odds despite him?
I think it's a fair question, and I'm curious to see where others come down on it. From what I'm hearing in the mainstream media, most seem to think he gets credit. Me, I'm willing to give a little benefit of the doubt, but end of the eday I'm still leaning the other way.

I mean I've been pretty vocal, I think, about this in the past. I was around Norv a lot during his last three seasons as head coach of the Redskins. And he's a smart X and Os guy (and he doesn't really have the patience for those, particularly QBs who aren't, so I suspect Rivers is a pretty smart dude), but a leader? Definitely not while he was here. He's someone players tended to want to play well for because they feel sorry for him sometimes. He didn't inspire people, he didn't command respect, he can keep a good team from completely falling apart but can he make a good team great? I don't think so.

I mean good for him that he's doing well but if you swap let's say Herman Edwards and Norv Turner I'm not sure that the Chiefs and Chargers records would be all that different.

Re: Divisional Playoff Predictions (Best Weekend in Sports)

NYG vs. Philly - I think this game is a toss up. The Iggle D played great last weekend, but it was against an average at best offense in Minny; I think they will have their hands full with the Giants' offense. On the other hand, Philly's offense played OK (not great) against a very good defense, and I think the Giants' D is not as good as Minny's. So an Iggles win will depend on their offense, otherwise I think the Giants have this one.

Panthers over Arizona - Carolina still has a really good defense, and their offense should be able to keep up.

Ravens over Tenn. - This game will depend on how two average/mediocre offenses can play against elite defenses. The Ravens' D has been dominating and winning games in the past couple of games, so my nod is to them.

Steelers over SD - This could be a close game, but I can see a better Steeler offense and a superb defense pulling the win.

I was really close with my Cardinals prediction...rooting for them now with the Titans out. That Titans-Ravens game was great, really got to admire the Ravens organization for what they've accomplished

Wow. There probably aren't too many people in the entire country (outside of Arizona, anyway) who predicted a Cardinal's blowout, especially within one point of the exact score. Well done sir. The flux capacitor uses 1.21 jigawatts of electricity, but you already knew that.

I also agree with your Pitt and NYG predictions.

Re: Divisional Playoff Predictions (Best Weekend in Sports)

As much as I love football, and I promise I love football I will disagree that this is not the best weekend in sports. The best weekend in sports is when the NCAA college basketball tourney rolls around in March. Since Im late on the predictions Ill take the Giants and the Chargers in todays matchups.

Indy's D isnt in the same league as Pgh and Pgh's turf is terrible. I dont see him running like that this week.

Well Irish! They did it! Good stuff man. Can see it them taking out Philly too!
