I dont think there is a lot to argue about when you look at norvs history as an OC, but that is the past. The question is whether or not he is a good OC for the future.
Look at his SD teams....tall receivers in VJax and floyd, lot of TE (easy choice when you have gates), and power running. That isnt todays NFL.
We need an OC that "grew up" with the spread offense, and who can implement what the redskins are doing with RG (albeit on a smaller scale since he is a true running QB) by using read option plays.
Whether or not Norv is an upgrade over the disgrace of an OC/QB coach we have now isnt really up for debate, of course he is. But is he the best long term OC that we can hire?
Personally I feel he is just another NFL retread (talented but still been around a long time) who runs the same offense the NFL has been running for years. He has zero experience with the spread and with all the talent on offense that SD had, was never really able to get over the hump.
One side note about sparano and the "wildcat". If you look at the plays we run with tebow, all we do is run him into the line or off tackle, the exact same plays that sparano used with ronnie brown in miami. Well, that ISNT WHAT TEBOW DID OR DOES, he ran a read-option offense in Denver which makes the sparano hire all the more insane as he had no clue how to run that offense. If we wanted to find a "wildcat QB" to run into the line 20 times a year, we probably could have found one without trading a 4th round pick.
