NORV TURNER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Vikings, Norv Turner Kept It Simple For Patriots In New England’s Win

The Minnesota Vikings weren’t trying to deceive the New England Patriots on Sunday. In fact, offensive coordinator Norv Turner was pretty straightforward in his offensive game plan. When the Vikings used three wide receivers, it was safe to assume they were passing, and when they went two-wide, chances are they were running the ball. The Vikings ran the ball 13 times (for 37...

Vikings will need to rely on Adrian Peterson hard over the next couple years

In a pass-happy NFL, Adrian Peterson could likely be the last running back standing when it comes to big contracts. He also might be the only running back that can catch Emmitt Smith’s rushing record, but it will be hard this year.  Norv Turner likes to spread the ball around and usually his tight end […] The post Vikings will need to rely on Adrian Peterson hard over the next...

Norv Turner explains what makes Teddy Bridgewater special

Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner did an interview with The Star Tribune and explained to them just how special rookie Teddy Bridgewater is. The first thing Turner talked about is Bridgewater’s quick release. “Look at this one,” Turner says. “The tight end is running an 18-yard out. Teddy drops. One, two, three, four, five and, bam, the ball’s out. See how quick...

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...

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...

NFL Draft Wishlist: San Diego Chargers

The Norv Turner/A.J. Smith era finally came to an end this season. With endings come new beginnings and for San Diego fans I have to think those new beginnings will be welcome. The Chargers are coming off one of the most disappointing periods in team history. In the minds of many, there was a three to four year window in [...]
