The issue isn't scheme. It isn't coordinating. It isn't play calling. It's talent.
You bring in Norv and now you've accomplished nothing but create another issue. A puppet head coach.
If you want to fire Garrett, bring in Lovie Smith as head coach and HE, not the Jones twins, decides he wants Norv Turner to run his offense, I would have no problem with it. But not this way. If you retain Garrett, he needs to retain the power to run his own offense. Otherwise this is a charade.
I see what you're saying but isn't Garrett a disciple of Norv? Didn't he learn his offense while playing and don't you think he has adapted elements of that offense into his system? I don't think they are that far off in offensive philosophy.
