    I know I'm in the minority on this one, but who cares, I'll go on the record with it anyway. If you can't get Jimmy Johnson, get Norv now. Can Parcells, I'm tired of his little "its all about me" act.

    Alexander What's it going to be then, eh?

    So is Norv going to work the same magic he did with Washington, Miami and Oakland?

    I would as soon pass.

    I can really appreciate everyone's fond memories of the Jimmy Johnson era, but the talent on those teams made each one of those supposed geniuses look much better than they actually were.

    I like Norv but not as a coach..... Jerry Jones will push him around like he did Campo!

    i hope you mean as an offensive coordinator not a HC!!! Did you see Norvs record with OAK, he's done, washed up, I think he only had 9 wins in his time with Oakland, we got that in one season!!!!!!

    I think he might make a good o coord. though

    No, I mean as head coach. I think Turner knows his stuff, and just needs the right situation. I think this is the right situation.

    Norv's offenses were actually good when he was the offensive cooridinator for San Diego and Miami. I never thought he would be a good head coach and could not believe he actually got a second chance. Dallas doesn't need to jump at the chance to get Norv because I think he will be available later if Sean Payton gets another job. A rumor I heard on ESPN radio this morning said that the Raiders may come calling back for Sean.

    The desperate need for an early 90's circle jerk of nostalgia never ceases to amaze.

    As soon as Martz works out a settlement, I think he tops the Raiders list.

    I don't think Norv would make a terrible offensive coordinator should Payton somehow leave. He's a horrid head coach though. Not quite a Campo, but close.

    I guess some people didn't notice in the Giant game when the Raiders had 1st and goal at the 1 and the brilliant offensive mind of Norv ran a fullback 3 times up the middle, and then after those got creamed decided on a QB sneak. All while one of the bigger WRs in the game stood on the side lines (fuming).

    That even made Parcells look Rams-esque.

    Hatred makes you blind to others weaknesses. The grass is always greener.....some people are just curmudgeons.

    Norv should have stayed an OC, its his calling. No on him as a HC.

    That would be interesting. The talk I heard was that Al Davis(much like Jerry was) wouldn't want someone who is high profile or would command a high salary. Martz and Davis could provide some sparks with their egos. Another couple of names I heard for the Raiders were Mo Carthon, Jim Fassel and Rick Neuhiesel(I can't stand that little weasel).

    To all those who keep up this "hire <insert ex dallas coach> now" tripe.

    Heres some other news flashes:

    Cell phonesare a good thing.
    The internet is a good thing.
    Electric light is a good thing.
    Cameras wont steal your soul.
    The wheel actually works!!!!

    These posts are getting absurd. Norv Turner has proven so much less than BP and has also proven significantly less aptitude for the head coaching position.

    For the sake of the Redskins, I hope you do hire Norv, in any capacity

    The guy, besides 3 years in Dallas in the early 90s, is a plain loser of a coach (nice person though)
