Sacks (of the quarterback kind) and sacking (of the fire-the-coach kind) highlighted NFL Week 4.
The photo here is of San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner taken from a Chargers fan forum. It sums up what Bolt fans think of their new coach, who took a 14-2 team from a year ago and has run it into the ground. After losing 30-16 to Kansas City on Sunday, the Chargers are 1-3 and the masses want Turner sacked now. The Chargers.com board has "The Official Fire Norv Turner Thread" that has 18 pages of messages as I write this.
Turner was a bust as a head coach in Washington and Oakland and fans scratched their head when he was chosen to replace Marty Schottenheimer, who at least knew how to win in the regular season. On NBC's halftime show Sunday, Keith Olbermann named Chargers president Dean Spanos and G.M. A.J. Smith as "Worst Persons in the NFL" for their mismanagement. The segment made Olbermann the most popular man in San Diego.
In sacks of the quarterback kind, Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb hit the turf a record-tying 12 times against the New York Giants, with lineman Osi Umenyiora getting six. Umenyiora constantly beat the left tackle Winston Justice, aka the Human Turnstile. --Jim Buzinski
