Broncos one step closer to repeating as AFC West champs

Chargers to retain Turner, Smith

The Chargers have announced that head coach Norv Turner and General Manager A.J. Smith will return in 2012.

“Bottom line, I believe these two men give us the best chance to get back to the playoffs,” club President Dean Spanos said in a statement posted on the team’s website. “A.J. Smith is the best man to improve our roster, and Norv Turner is the best man to lead that roster on the field.

THANK YOU, Dean Spanos!

Meanwhile, Mike Martz has resigned as the Bears OC. Perhaps Jay Cutler will be reunited with his BFF Bubble Screen Bates.
