The San Diego Chargers basically tuned out Norv Turner last year. That's what led to the 7-9 record, according to Chargers running back Ryan Mathews. "I think we were just complacent," Mathews said Friday on 'NFL AM.' "The time that we spent there -- we spent a lot of time there -- it was the same thing over and over again. There wasn't anything new. "I think he did everything he could to try to make us win, no doubt about it. I just think we really got complacent to where we were and what we were doing and thought we were owed to win games." Turner ran the show in San Diego for six seasons, made the playoffs for the first three and was left out the last three. Players won't respond to hearing the same thing the same way for a long period of time. That's the challenge for coaching staffs. In the end, sometimes there's the need for a new voice in the room.
