I'm not really that excited about Norv Turner. He's been good in the past as a coordinator, but I want to believe we can find someone else who will be better able to adapt to his surroundings. Turner said in an interview the other day that the reason the Chargers have fallen off is because they've lost a lot of good players to free agency. That's true, but you're the head coach, and you can't adapt to losing players in free agency? He strikes me as a prisoner of circumstance.
The upside to Norv, however, is that he's probably DONE as a head coach, so he won't be making a jump anywhere. It would give Luck the opportunity to be comfortable in his offense for a good stretch of time. And his offense isn't that much different from Arians: lots of verticals and some of the same route combinations. He's a Coryell guy. But Norv's system has evolved into a hybrid offense: he uses his backs in the passing game a lot more (ala Mike Martz), has a lot of tight end features, and will purposely focus on high percentage passes when the quarterback is struggling. So if you're looking for some semblance of consistency for Luck, Norv would be a good fit.
I think we could do better, though.
That was a great post and, although it may not have been your intention, it actually sold me a bit on Norv. It helped me crystallize my thoughts on his offense. Rivers is a chucker, yes, but they have also killed us, and others, on screens, dumpoffs and high percentage stuff.
So, if you want continuity, Norv might work, but only one year in, how important is continuity? You can do what they did in Denver - you retain parts of it while evolving into something else.
