In a Change of Pace, Here's Some Bad News


According to Chargers.com, San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner and general manager AJ Smith will both return to the team for the 2012-13 season, per team president and chair Dean Spanos.

"Bottom line, I believe these two men give us the best chance to get back to the playoffs," Spanos said. "A.J. Smith is the best man to improve our roster, and Norv Turner is the best man to lead that roster on the field.

I don't necessarily disagree about Norv, but I never really thought of Smith as a good or especially competent GM. After this season however, I am hardly in any position to be criticizing any other teams managers. But for now, never mind how I personally feel about the FO staff of AFC West teams. The implications of this non-move on our beloved Jets is immediately clear.

Turner was one of two prominent names according to recent "sources" that the Jets would consider sacking Brian Schottenheimer for, the other being former HC and Quarterback guru Josh McDaniels. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume the Jaguars don't bite their own leg off and hire Schotty. That nixes two of three possibilities.

Some believe that Schottenheimer is as good as done and everything to the contrary is merely diplomacy or lip service. Here's hoping, but one of the options the Jets were allegedly leaning toward over B.S. is officially off the table.

Grieve with me below.
