The San Diego Chargers finished the season with an offense ranked sixth in the NFL. This is quite the accomplishment considering that Phillip Rivers managed to have his worst output since 2007.

They had the same problem on the defensive side of the ball to the level that even rookie Bront Bird was taking numerous snaps towards the end of the season. With the amount of injuries that the Chargers have suffered over the past two years, one could argue that Norv actually kept the team somewhat intact—and that a harsh assessment of his progress is not fair.
