Embattled San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner's frustrations finally boiled over in his media session following Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.

After saying he expected his team to bounce back and respond next Sunday with Turner was asked by a TV reporter if the team responded and sitll lost next week to the Denver Broncos, if such a result would  be acceptable.

"What do you think? What do you think the answer to that question is? Answer it for me," Turner responded. "No, it’s not acceptable. You know the answer to that. Is it acceptable having a blocked punt and an interception for a touchdown? No, it’s not acceptable to play hard and not win, but that’s what happened.”

After the press conference ended, a Union-Tribune columnist told Turner he looked a little hot under the collar, to which the coach replied in an angry tone, "I’m not hot under the collar. You ask a stupid question you should get a stupid (bleeping) answer.”
