Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner doesn’t see any signs that running back Adrian Peterson is slowing down with age, but we’ll have to wait until the regular season to find out for sure.

Adrian Peterson and Norv Turner are both dinosaurs

Adrian Peterson and Norv Turner have are both hold-overs from a seemingly bygone offensive era. One epitomizes the bell-cow I-formation power running back, while the other is today’s foremost proponent of old-fashioned run-it-and-go-play-action offense. Adrian Peterson and Norv Turner ought to get along pretty well as both are throwbacks. Peterson and Turner both in their own...

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson led the league in rushing attempts last season with 327, marking the first time he’s led the league in that metric and the fourth time that he’s run the ball at least 314 times in a season. Only a handful of running backs 30 or older have run the ball…

Blame offensive coordinator Norv Turner for Vikings’ final play

Many are blaming quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and head coach Mike Zimmer for the Minnesota Vikings’ strip-sack to end Thursday night’s 23-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. However, the majority of the blame should fall on the shoulders of offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Play-callers often take the heat when players fail to execute. And on the final play—in which Cardinals...

Turner has great quote in defense of Bridgewater

By Rachel Wold Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater choked during a particular portion of his pro day workout last year. This was something that may have caused him to slip to the 32nd overall pick in last year’s draft. The exact drill where Bridgewater struggled was when he had to throw a pass over raised brooms which were supposed to simulate an oncoming pass rush...

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.

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.

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...
