NORV TURNER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Norv Turner’s Impact on the Minnesota Vikings Offense

With Christian Ponder under center from 2011-2012, the Minnesota Vikings’ passing offense was anemic at best. In those two seasons, the Ponder-led Vikings finished 28th and 24th, respectively, in total passing yards. Bill Musgrave, the offensive coordinator at the time, relied heavily on the legs of Adrian Peterson.Peterson famously rushed for 2,097 yards in 2012, leading the Vikings...

Minnesota Vikings OC Norv Turner More Than Happy With Teddy Bridgewater

It's been awhile since new Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked as just the offensive coordinator. When Minnesota hired the team likely hoped that one thing would happen--that he could replicate the success he saw with the Cowboys way back in the day with he Vikings.That depends.

Norv Turner has irrational confidence in Vikings quarterbacks

(Credit: CBS) The Minnesota Vikings have a legitimate QB competition on their hands heading into training camp. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner has said that Matt Cassel. Christian Ponder, and rookie Teddy Bridgewater will all have a chance to win the starting job. That makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is the amount of praise Turner is giving two mediocre guys and a player...

Loud and clear: Turner gets Vikings' players attention, respect quickly

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- A voice rises loudly over the Minnesota Vikings practice fields, a new coach clearly audible, shouting -- sometimes with colorful language -- to get the attention of the players.  Only this coach isn't Mike Zimmer, Minnesota's new head coach known for his fiery personality.  No, the coach most noticeable during the Vikings' summer practices has been Norv...

Vikings will lean heavily on Turner in evaluation of quarterbacks

INDIANAPOLIS -- When he was introduced as the Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator, Norv Turner joked that he doesn't have to decide on when his new team will have to draft a quarterback. Turner might not make the final call, but he's going to have a big say in when and where Minnesota tries to find its next young quarterback, and on who it will be. Vikings general manager Rick...

New Vikings OC Norv Turner Already on Hot Seat

How quickly has a new NFL coaching assistant been fired? I know the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski after one season as a Head Coach, and the Raiders pretty much fire head coaches at the end of every season as well, but I can't think of many instances when someone like an Offensive Coordinator or other assistant coach was fired in the same offseason that he was hired. But if new...

Norv Turner Wants To Spread The Field For Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson is a beast at tailback, so imagine how effective he would be with some space and room to run.  It Norv Turner has any say in it, Peterson will run wild next season. Turner wants to run an offense that gets the ball to his best player in space, and reportedly wants to focus on getting Peterson the ball as a pass catcher as well. Turner told ESPN that he wantst to...

Could Derek Carr thrive in a Norv Turner lead Minnesota Vikings offense?

The eighth pick in the draft is frustrating—typically franchises with the eighth pick haven’t solved their problems behind center but are left generally finding another position to strengthen with the hope that they can find a way to grab a quarterback next year. In fact, in the last 40 years, quarterbacks have only been selected twice with the eighth pick (and recently, too...
