  • All of that and more packed into one show. Keep an eye out for an HBR podcast during the week. As always, your comments are welcome in the thread.

    John and I did get into a debate about how Norv changed the offense when he became the head coach. I say it was Norv's philosophy, John thinks it was out of necessity. For what it's worth, I attached a chart with the number of pass/run plays per year Norv has called.

    If I had the time, I would have pulled the numbers for the Chargers when Norv was the OC and after he left. If you have the time, please feel free to post that info in the thread.
