It seems like Chargers coach Norv Turner has been on the hot seat as long as he’s had a seat.
But the temperature may have never been hotter than it is right now.
The Chargers are 3-3, but have lost their last two in embarassing fashion, giving up 17 unanswered to allow the then-winless Saints to comeback, and last night allowing 35 unanswered to the Broncos in a frankly ridiculous loss.
With the bye week coming up, Turner was asked post-game if he thought this might be the end.
“I’m not going to comment on that,” Turner said, via Nick Canepa of U-T San Diego, who noted it was probably the first time Turner was asked that question after a game.
He doesn’t have to, does he? This one feels as eventual as can be. After years of teasing with talent, the Chargers haven’t taken the next step.
And now, it looks like they’ve taken a major step backward, leaving them shell-shocked in the wake of a ridiculous loss.
“We thought we were better than this,” cornerback Quentin Jammer said. “You have a 24-point lead …”
That’s a sentence that doesn’t need finishing by anyone other than a Spanos.
