Jason Garrett needs to call Norv Turner
By Tim MacMahon
Norv Turner won his 100th game (including playoffs) on Sunday. Jason Garrett should call to congratulate his mentor.
And then Garrett should pick Turner’s brain about the Colts.
Nobody knows how to beat the Colts like Turner’s Chargers. San Diego’s dominance in Indianapolis on Sunday night marked the fifth time in six meetings that they beat Peyton Manning and Co.
Jerry Jones almost hired Turner in 2007. He would have brought Ron Rivera, whose defense forced five turnovers and scored two touchdowns in the rout over the Colts, with him as defensive coordinator.
The Cowboys can still benefit from the expertise of Turner and Rivera, at least this week. All Garrett has to do is call an old friend.
