You know one thing you have to think about is that if we do fire Palmer, then David Carr and the offense would have to learn a WHOLE NEW OFFENSIVE SYSTEM. That would take a year to get adjusted to, and with great learners on offense, you could kiss the 2005 playoffs good-bye.
I like the Norm Chow idea. I think he is the best offensive mind in football, knows how to manage a game and a young quaterback, and probably the most underated guy IN football. I wonder how come he doesn't win that award for best assisant in college every year? Anyway why would he leave USC when they are building and "empire"? and they have all the talent in the world?
