NORV TURNER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Unprovoked, Turner defends Bridgewater's play

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Norv Turner had something he wanted to get off his chest. As the Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator, Turner's responsibilities have included the development of rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Turner's knowledge helped guide the selection of Bridgewater in the first round of May's NFL Draft. The year-long education has helped Bridgewater succeed...

The Enigma that is the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson

Three snaps. That is all, just three. That is the amount of time that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson spent on the field as a member of the offense during last Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. That is the amount of time that a player, whom the Vikings traded a second, a third, a fourth, and a seventh round draft pick in 2013 to acquire, spent on...

Is Cordarrelle Patterson becoming a cancer in the locker room for Vikings?

Norv Turner put on a show this week against the Carolina Panthers stingy defense, but one player is not happy with the way he is being used.  While Cordarrelle Patterson would not say he was frustrated he sure sounded like he was mad according to the Star Tribune. “The things I want to say are […] The post Is Cordarrelle Patterson becoming a cancer in the locker room for Vikings...

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...

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. But if new...

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...
