    Was listening to the radio today, and heard some chatter about keeping Jason Garrett another year and bringing in Norv as an O-Coordinator when the inevitable happens and he's fired in San Diego.

    Perceived Pros:
    Norv is a brilliant football mind & a talented O coordinator
    Has skins on the wall as a coordinator here
    Has a great relationship with Jerry

    Cons:
    Ego would make it difficult to work under Garrett
    Game has possibly passed him by
    A lot has changed since he was here

    Im not a supporter of this move, but i'd like to know what your opinions are.

    Turner has forgotten more about running a quality NFL offense than Garrett knows.

    My opinion is with this same group of players, the offense won't improve even a little.

    The coaching is fine. The play calling is fine, other than it has to be so one dimensional because they can't run the ball. We have a talent issue. Norv Turner doesn't fix that.

    Garrett might not like it first. Also Norv runs the closest thing to Coryell's offense. We don't have the personnel to run it. We can't even run a variant well. OTOH I believe Norv could run Jason's offense but that goes right back to not having personnel. He could help game plan and call plays but I don't know what that gets u.

    Let's leave the 90s in the 90s, it's time we moved on as an organization. I don't see the 49ers or Steelers trying reclaim someone from their glory years and neither should we.

    And beyond that, Turner's offense is failing in the exact same way Garrett's is: the routes are not generating space. Rivers throws interceptions and Romo takes sacks. This philosophy of offense died like Soviet Communism: powerful at one point but pathetic in modern era. Its not the players, the Coryell scheme is failing around the league. Mike Tice even changed the playcalling to a quick drop, quick pass style after the Packers destroyed the long developing routes earlier in the year.

    Well, if that's the case, why would you want him? Just playing. I know what the phrase is intended to imply. But if you think about it, why would you want a coach that's forgotten that much?

    How long has the Norv talk been going on? Geesh.

    Maybe we can get Zampese here too.

    We have an offensive coordinator and he doesn't call the plays. The HC does.

    this could be like wade phillips all over again. Remember he is a better D coordinator than HC. He pretty much sucked when he was our HC/DC but just being the DC and houston he looking pretty good right now. Especially since he lucked into JJ Watt.

    Maybe having Norv Turner just focus on being the OC he can be alot better. Just maybe.

    I was thinking the same thing last night, about NT coming in as an OC . I had almost the exact same Pros and Cons you listed and like you I don't think I would support the change. I think JG stays for at least another season so NT as OC might be the best the fan base can hope for. Not sure if this would work but really it couldn't be any worse than this year, could it.

    exactly, can't do it when you could have sean payton who jerry want garrett to be. Sean payton at coaching and OC>>>Garrett. Then hopefully we switch back to the 4-3 :shades:

    Every single observer I've heard around this team, from Patrick Crayton to Todd Archer to Randy Galloway, says there's no way Norv would come in and work for someone he sees as an inferior coach to himself.

    And who could blame him.

    Sorry Risen , I agree on the talent and O-L perspective , but not coaching and play calling, when you dont have the 90's OL or running gmae, trying to call long developing plays is not going to work.

    That is play calling and coaching! IMO:banghead:
