Will Norv Turner still have a job when the Ravens visit San Diego?

Despite the sunny weather, things aren’t looking very good for Norval Eugene Turner in San Diego, and the Las Vegas sports books agree.

As they do with just about anything, Vegas placed odds on Turner’s derriere surviving a scorching hot seat throughout the second half of the season.

Odds have been set at 5/4 that Turner is fired before the end of the season, which sparks the thought that he may not even survive the next three games until the Ravens make yet another visit to the Golden State.

Under Turner’s tutelage, the Chargers have been a thorn in the Ravens’ side. Having won two of their three meetings, both in San Diego, most Ravens fans weren’t too happy to see the team having to travel cross country again.

Late last season, the Ravens lost 34-14 to the Chargers, causing panic throughout the fan base as the team dropped from having a first-round bye to the fifth-overall seed in a tight playoff race.

Turner took over for Mary Schottenheimer in 2007 after the Chargers surprisingly fired him coming off a 14-2 season. During his time in San Diego, Turner has never finished with fewer than eight wins or finished lower than second in the AFC West.

If Turner and the Chargers lose tonight to the Kansas City Chiefs, the odds are certain to increase, which bodes well for Ravens’ fans.

After all, Turner does still have some hope of continuing to make money if he believes in himself. He could triple his money with the 3/1 odds Vegas gave him that he’ll be around in 2013 but for some reason, I don’t think Turner will betting on himself.

The Chargers are now 3-4 and are coming off an ugly 7-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Still, even though San Diego has played subpar football this season, given the Ravens’ road woes, traveling cross-country to see the Bolts is daunting.

Has Vegas placed odds on John Harbaugh kidnapping Jarret Johnson while he’s in San Diego yet?

    In time, perhaps, to become someone else’s offensive coordinator? Could we set up a one game contract to call play’s for both teams?
