Could Norv Turner be Dallas’ next coach?

Jan 22, 2007 at 10:11 AM--


Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells retired from coaching football this morning. The Dallas Morning News feels that there are two possibilities as replacements for Parcells. One being San Diego defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. The other being San Francisco offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

Turner joined San Francisco on January 17, 2006. Turner was the offensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys on Jimmy Johnson's staff when Dallas won back to back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. Turner got much of the credit for their success.

He is also credited for the improvement in second year quarterback Alex Smith and has a good reputation for developing young quarterbacks in the NFL.

Of course, much of this is likely to be speculation.

Fred Warner was Pro Football Focus' highest-graded linebacker in 2020 when the San Francisco 49ers star defender earned a career-high overall grade of 88.6. The performance earned Warner a big-time contract extension worth up to $95 million. Warner's Pro Football Focus grade has dropped to 70.2 this season, making him the NFL's eighth-highest graded linebacker among those with over 300 snaps. The linebacker admits that he is in a slump, but it's not because of a lack of effort. Warner spoke with reporters before today's practice and was asked to offer a self-assessment. "I could give a very detailed answer," Warner responded. "I could go on and on about that. I think the short answer is: I could be better. And I always look back to 'are you getting



49ers-Jaguars: Kyle Shanahan 'holding out hope' that Elijah Mitchell could play, discusses Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon

San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Elijah Mitchell is officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is still hoping that the rookie could play, but the odds are against him. Mitchell suffered a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. The next day, he underwent a procedure to repair the damage. As a result, Mitchell has not practiced at all this week. The coach had hoped the team's leading rusher would get some work in during the three practices, but that never happened. "It's just how he feels with it," Shanahan explained. "And we thought it would be a little further along now. But obviously, it isn't. That's why he couldn't go today. We're holding out hope because

Jeff Wilson Jr. looks on track to start his first game since last season. Now a veteran in the running back room, Wilson is ready for whatever the San Francisco 49ers demand of him against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend. "Whatever they ask [of] me," Wilson said after Friday's practice. "That's been the thing since Day 1. So whatever you're called upon, that's what you're called upon to do. So, if that was the case, that's what I'll do. If it was for me to get only a couple of carries, be a blocker, then that's what I'll do. Whatever the task is, that's what I'll do." The 49ers figured on Wilson being a key contributor in the team's rushing attack this season. However, the running back underwent surgery in May to repair a torn meniscus. The injury didn't
