Hire Norv Turner as OC

Recommended Posts

Hire Norv Turner as OC. Is he a bad head coach yes. Is he a good offfensive mind? No doubt. The one constant wherever Norv went was the ability to score points on offense. Hand him the keys to the O, and let Rex and Pettine take care of the rest. Sounds like a recipe for success to me...after we get a QB ofcourse.

I am not a huge Norv Turner fan but in all seriousness why would Norv Turner want to coach the NYJ?

The HC is likely fired after 2013 and the offense is offensive. It would be 1 and done for Norv in NJ and I don't know that he wants the stink of the Jets offense on his resume.

Most of the coaches fired today have a background as successful offensive coordinators... So the talent pool is rich for that job this off season, BUT we still need a QB. Otherwise it doesn't matter who we hire.

I don't think can be as bad as it was this year. If they re-sign Edwards you have him Holmes and Kerley at WR, Powell and maybe Greene at RB. Get a QB

And lets assume that we as fans are not the only ones that figured out Hill can't catch and that they're/he is actually working on some type of structured program to correct that.

An improved Hill, Edwards, Holmes, Kerley, and Keller/Cumberland could actually be a performance corps - with someone to throw them the ball.

Having Norv or Wizz to orchestrate that could have us back in the running pretty quickly

I like this idea and thought just that when he was let go yesterday. As others have stated I kinda doubt he'd want to come here unless he figures it would look great on his resume if he fixed our massive offensive mess. He was quoted as saying he'd like to be an OC again.

The Norv Turner as offensive guru BS has got to stop at some point.

His entire reputation is based on coaching the Cowboys offense in the 90s. He had quite possibly the greatest collection of talent ever assembled at his disposal - Hall of Fame QB in Aikman, HoF WR in Irvin, HoF RB in Emmit Smith, borderline HoF TE and FB in Novacek and Johnston and maybe the best offensive line ever.

In other words, my sister would be considered an offensive genius if she got to coach that group and this is a girl who used to bring books to the Jets games when we were kids.

Norv Turner as OC - pass. The guy is a loser and a failure and yet somehow still manages to be the most overrated coach on the planet.

You expect us to believe you had books in your family?

Whoever the new GM is, he's going to have a significant role in hiring the new OC. If Rex's hold on the Jets job is as tenuous as some fans here seem to think, the OC job might be very attractive. Whoever the GM hires to be the OC in 2013 would conceivably be the front runner to take over as head coach should they decide to part ways with Rex after the season. Or even during it.

sanchez limits the ability of the next OC to advance his career in any meaningful way

sanchez wont start next year and he may not even be on Jets IMO

hope you're right -- id dump him and take 100% of the cap hit next year. lost season anyway. problem is rex will be fighting for his job and can't afford the best longterm approach. once the new GM gets on board we'll see whose philosophy wins out...

agree, but even Rex has to know that a Journeyman QB vet gives him better shot at a W them Sanchez

This. Sanchez is a drain on the franchise right now. The new GM needs to figure out how to unload him.

The Jets should bring in a Matt Moore type and a mid round rookie to compete for the starting job next year.

Agree with this 100%. I think a guy like Moore is a perfect holdover type solution, as he's a solid if unspectacular player with experience who could be gotten for relatively cheap on a short deal. A guy like Alex Smith will command much more money and want a long term deal, simply for being a better version of the same type of "game manager" player, which in today's NFL, isn't good enough to get the job done. The Jets just need someone to hold the fort while they continue to look for that long-term solution.

definitely agree with you -- you should call that head hunter and put your hat in the ring for the GM job!

You think Jesus would come anywhere near here after what we did to Tebow? and he'd have no shot of reigning in this locker room
