    I saw on NFL Network they said who each player is having them introduced at the Hall Of Fame ceremonies, but I couldn't stick around to watch it. Can anyone here tell me who it is? Thanks!!

    It is Norv, I just attended a Football Coach's Clinic here in the Bay Area. Norv Turner spoke to us and he said in January Al Davis pulled him into his office and said "I don't want you to coach my team anymore" Norv said he was thinking "Well I don't want to coach your team either, but since I had another year left on my contract I wasn't going to say anything" then he said two days later "Troy called me and said he thinks there is a good chance he will be voted in to the Hall and asked if I would be his speaker, I said of course, so I went from a Low to a High, then Mike Nolan called me, January was a good month." Norv is a really cool guy, a little old school but a great coach.

    funny how things work out... Norv wasnt even Jimmys first choice!!! I think he was the 3rd or 4th guy, right? noone wanted that job!!! I was just glad to see Shuler go!!!


    Norv did well for himself... in fact everyone in the organization can thank someone else on the team for their initial success in the NFL!!!

    except Haley!!!

    Why would Aikman have Norv Turner introduce him rather then Jimmy Johnson? Other then being a good offensive coordinator for the Cowboys, Turner has been a bust in the NFL.

    Because that's who HE wants. It's Troy's day, get it? He and Norv were and still are very close by all accounts. Not that he and Jimmy aren't friends, but Troy and Norv had a special relationship.

    Well, I guess that's as close as Norv will get to the HOF anyways, and Jimmy Johnson is going to be in on his own accord in a few years.

    BTW, did anyone hear the HOF speech Dan Marinos son gave for him? Surprisingly it made me emotional, along with Reggie White getting inducted posthumously.
