So after all the hoopla of Norv Turner possibly making his way to Valley Ranch to coach the Cowboys, he’s landed the job in San Diego.
The team that most of us thought would be in the Super Bowl last year.
The team with the best offensive weapon the league has seen in a while. (Tomlinson)
The team that probably has the most promising young quarterback. (Rivers)
The team with the best and most prolific tight end in the game (Gates – no offense to Tony G.).
The team with probably the best offensive line in the game.
And a team with one of the best defenses in the league, assuming they’ll survive without Wade Phillips.
It’s a great deal for Norv. He’s a modern-day offensive genius who now has all the tools he needs to do his thing. Maybe pick up a great receiver just to provide some icing on the cake. But he’s set. And as appetizing as I’m sure Dallas was with its offensive tools (Romo, Jones, Owens, Whitten), it also has some big areas of concern (Romo, Jones, Owens and the O-Line).
So, congrats to Turner. I think he came out on top, and it’s going to be even more fun to watch him run what’s already one of the best offenses in the league.
