San Diego Coach Norv Turner was in the middle of a news conference Monday night following what had to be one of the most devastating losses of his career -- 35-24 to the Denver Broncos in a game the Chargers led, 24-0, at halftime -- when a reporter spoke up:
"There are a ton of Chargers fans out there saying this is a bye week, this is a time to make a change. What would you say to that?"
Turner said calmly, "I don't know what you're talking about."
The reporter tried to make himself more clear: "I've been hearing, people have been saying time to make a change of Norv Turner, and they wanted it at the end of the season and, you know, two collapses in a row right now."
Turner again kept his composure. "Yeah, I don't think I'm going to respond to that."
We're not sure Turner was the right person to ask if he should be fired, but it is a valid question.
