    I hope we hire Norv . When I watched the press conference yesterday he was talking and joking with Pryor and other raider players in the locker room. Norv seems to know a lot about the raiders and Allen seems to really like Norv because when he was asked about him he said he has a good relationship with him and thinks he's a great coach and coach tarver will probably help influence Allen because tarver called Norv the nfl best offensive play caller.

    i think this would be a good move for us and i think we stand a decent chance of getting him as OC unless someone offers him a HC position. for an OC position it would most convenient for him to stay in CA and in the division he knows best.

    Yeah, I'd say I'm excited at the possibility of getting Turner as OC as well. Knows the division well and has coached some dominant Charger offenses as HC and will live next door to his probable QB.
    And going into the visiting locker room after the game.....and making a point of patting Pryor on the back in front of the cameras....
    Make it happen, Reggie Mac and Son of Al.

    He has more experience than our GM, HC and DC combined. His experience would bring valuable perspective to the leadership team.

    I gotta be honest...

    I have been SHOCKED at the success Philip Rivers has had in the NFL. I was never sold on him coming out of college.

    Norv maximized Rivers talents. I think he could do the same with Palmer.

    Also....He is a quality QB coach....

    Before Harbaugh...Norv was the only one that got something out of Alex Smith. He might be the kind of guy who can "fix" Pryor in a couple years. Idk.

    But yea I'd love Palmer and Dmac in Norv's offense.

    And Turner said in his post game presser he got his guys pumped up for the game telling them how physical the Raiders were and how much beating them meant to him (paraphrasing).
    Better for the recent resume to sweep your future employer, I guess.

    high probability of staying in Ca w him being seen patting Tyrell on the back on CSN, has many wondering whats up.

    Damn, it sure would be nice to see some aggressive, creative play calling around here for once.

    Norvell might be back

    I, for one, am lukewarm to the idea. This man has lived off of his Cowboys glory days for a long time. As HC of the Raiders under Al Davis, he was essentially the OC. Granted, it was a tough job, but the O was horrendous. An upgrade over Knapp, but I would prefer to keep looking.

    Yes, those years at the Chargers really made those offenses suck.....

    This was when we thought Kerry Collins could bomb it to Moss 10 times a game and Lamont Jordan could rush for a buck 25.
    except for the fact we DIDNT throw it to Moss hardly ever and used him a sa friggin decoy way too much'
