A.J. Smith: Slow starts are "not a Norv Turner thing."

A.J. Smith: Slow starts are "not a Norv Turner thing." We all know that the Chargers' slow starts are a bit unusual -- normally, the team's going to start with two wins and three losses every year, since that's close to what Norv Turner's Chargers' teams have started anyway. To say this isn't a Norv Turner thing (and that this is a "Charger thing" as A.J. Smith puts it) is a bit off. Norv Turner has never had fast starts and his offense is complex enough for players to get confused at first, even if they're incumbents. Regardless, we're hoping it's not a Norv thing; and if it is, we're hoping this "thing" goes away.
