Cheap Schwag got hired.

Chargers general manager A.J. Smith is now officially bat-shit crazy -- breaking news dictates that the Chargers will commit team suicide and hire Norv Turner as head coach. This is where Smith has finally had his "I'm Keith Hernandez!" moment as GM -- he firmly believes he has assembled all the talent and any coach could get them to the Lombardi Trophy.

You may officially remove the Chargers from Super Bowl consideration. Put Fantasy Jesus (Tomlinson) on the cover of Madden '08 already.

And all this mess was over a power trip because Marty wanted to hire his younger brother as defensive coordinator. Now you have a man whom is without question one of the worst head coaches of the past decade, in charge. Charger fans, grab the bong, enjoy your .500 season, and make sure to have water on hand for the dry aftertaste when you miss the playoffs.

Are we sure this isn't just a silly mistake, and Norv was actually hired as the team's offensive coordinator?

Too many people with actual journalistic cred on the line would have to be wrong for that to be the case, sadly.

I wonder if the Hater Nation's going to bust a gasket on this.
