Norv Turner has heard people say the Chargers are a quick fix, that they're close to solving their roster issues, that this three-year playoff drought can end next year, Michael Gehlken of UT San Diego reports.
He's heard people expect the 2013 Chargers to make the playoffs but doesn't believe it.
"Someone wrote a few weeks ago that this team is not that far away from the playoffs," Turner said. "I would disagree. I know the things that would have to get done for that to happen. If this team comes next year and they get some things done to help them get better and are able to make the playoffs, I would hope it would be a surprise to all the Chargers fans, and they would be excited about it.
"I would hope it would not be the expectation starting in August because I think you need to give whoever the guy who comes in here and the group he brings in some time to get back this thing back to where it was."
Turner said he thinks the Chargers were the most talented team in the AFC West those first three seasons and not the most talented team in the most recent.
"We've had too many changes," Turner said. "We've lost too many people."
