Another coach intertwined with RR may be leaving the train wreck called the Browns. So we may all get to watch Norv try to turn Ponder into a NFL QB and to work his magic with that offense.Im sure if Shula lays an egg next season the comparisons will start.Let the games begin.

Seriously though, why do people love Norv Turner so much?

He has been a head coach 15 years and has had only 3 10+ win seasons I believe.

Better as an OC

 

Seems to have a rep as being a QB developer.  Could mean he helps with Ponder, or, that the Vikes want a new guy drafted at #1. Never know

This will shatter many peoples fantasies of Norv coming to take on the OC job when we kick Shula out! It's all not going to happen so were stuck with Shula

Rivera already said in the presser that Shula isn't going anywhere...

In fairness (though Shula wasn't always perfect), I'd like to see Donnie's son with an improved offensive line and a couple of legitimate weapons added next year. 

 

That could make a world of difference (especially with Cam having time behind the line, throwing to some legitimate NFL receivers other than Smitty, with Ginn as a 3 0r 4 man, and NO LaFail). 

 

Just look at how Cam was able to successfully throw deep during the first half of the playoff game with space?

Norv is just looking for a pay check these days. He didn't want to work with Rivera last year, so why would he this year?

As far as overrated coaches, The Herm Edwards hype has always blown my mind.
