Former Chargers head coach Norv Turner, along with Norm Chow -- who coached Philip Rivers at North Carolina State -- were on hand at today's joint practice between the Chargers and Saints. Turner served as Brees' offensive coordinator for the Chargers his rookie season in 2001 and is a neighbor of his in Del Mar. "They're both ready to go," Turner said. "And to me, I'd expect both of them to have big years."
