When did they fire him?

Norv Turner and AJ Smith are reportedly both going to get fired at the end of the season but it hasn't happened yet.

I saw the rumors, but LV was stating it as fact and that it would impact the team immediately. I thought he may have a source we didn't see yet. I don't put much stock in rumors turning a team one way or the other.

no, just a rumor at this point still but it's probably more like a foregone conclusion. the only thing that surprises me is that those two have kept their jobs for this long.

Anyone predicting a Steeler blow out must be smoking crack.. This team does NOT blow people out. I'd love to see a 35-10 victory, but once we get up by 10 points we go into run down the clock mode. 23-16 Pit.
As far as the cowboys beating the Bengles, That will probably happy 24-20 Cowboys. Unfortunately Indy will beat Tennessee 31-13. Leaving up at 8-5 and 6th seed for now. However the Colts play the Texans twice still, and they are going to lose both of those games (21-17 and 24-17 respectively) and with us running the table down the stretch were gonna be the number 5 seed, unless the Ravens implode, which they might because they really do suck, and I'm not just saying that as a Steelers fan I'm saying that as someone with observational skills.

I can't wait until this healthy Steelers team makes a run, we've got a real shot at #7 this year folks!

We actually want the Bungles to win so they have something to play for on their last game

Realisticly we might be battling the Bengals for the final WC spot. Any loss by them is a win for us. Let's at least wrap up a WC before we can start rooting for the Bengals to beat the Ravens. We might actually need the Ravens to win that game just for us to get into the playoffs.

Dean, obviously, denies it.

The local radio guys are saying, as we all know in SD, that Acee is not a headlines hound, nor a rumor-mill. He usually reports what he actually has heard (credibility). The radio guys are basically guessing that Dean had told his son, who told a few other people, and while they were trying to keep it "quiet", someone found out... and told Acee.

Now, if this had been Nick Canepa who wrote it, I would say that it is 100% true. Not because I like Canepa better and/or I trust him more; it is because Canepa is AJ's lapdog. Just this Monday, Canepa wrote an article about how AJ is NOT to blame... blah, blah, blah... Thus, as soon as Canepa "has" to write that AJ is being fired, then we will know it is finally no longer a rumor (because, Canepa will no longer be able to apologize for "his guy").

REGARDLESS, it is probably weighing on Norv's mind... because, the papaers, TV, and radio are all discussing it... and everyone (except Canepa) agrees: good riddance!!!

2) Sloppy Pittsburgh winter weather. Not the sunny warm days San Diego losers are used to. Football weather. Warning: bad weather can be the great equalizer. Still, I see the Steelers at home fairing better than the Bolts.

3) Coming off the win over the Ravens, it's time to show that we can put together a post season run. Crushing the Chargers will be a good start, and I think we'll do just that. The loss to the Browns was the wake-up call needed.

4) O-Line should be a little healthier. Beachum was looking good in there, and we need Ben to stay healthy. Looking for them to step up their game. Indeed. Conversely, the Chargers are starting to O-linemen who were on the street last week (and a third who was low on the depth chart).

5) Harrison looks like he's getting back to his old self. IMO, he's playing to justify that big contract he has, so expect him to hit Rivers hard. I have predicted in many threads that James Harrison will either have 5 sacks or create 5 INTs. The Bolts' O-line is in shambles, and Rivers was already a turnover machine.

6) Phillip Rivers sucks. Rivers likes throwing game-losing INTs.

7) The Chargers suck. The Bolts/Rivers/Norv have had a good December record (like 21-5)... but, I just do not see them pulling it together this year. They are sliding badly, and Rivers is pressing, and their O-line is horrid.
My favorite thread of each week.
