Latest Chargers loss proves that Turner was right

Norv was right, Chargers fans.
Norval  Eugene Turner, the former Chargers coach, said on his way out, the team was two-three years away from being able to make a run.
It’s time to go shopping, Chargers. Time to shop for players who can help you immediately.
It starts at the offensive and defensive lines.
Even though the NFL is more of a passing league than ever before, if you can’t protect your quarterback or get to the quarterback, you’re going to have a ton of problems winning games.
The Chargers have both of those issues.
They need a center, at least one guard and maybe a tackle depending on where D.J. Fluker plays next season.
They need a running back corps; maybe you invest via the draft there.
They need a nose guard and maybe another defensive end.
They need help at linebacker, outside and inside, but mostly they need to stay healthy there.
They need a strong safety and help at cornerback as well, but many of these problems are solved if the Chargers find answers along the offensive and defensive lines.
Sure, the list is long. But it’s not impossible for general manager Tom Telesco and his staff to fill those holes this offseason.
