The Minnesota Vikings began the year 5-0 and looked like world-beaters. They were atop the NFC with the last undefeated record in the league, led by their dominant defense and good-enough offense.
Fast-forward three weeks and the Vikings are 5-2, struggling to even compete offensively with their opponents. Now, they’ve lost their offensive coordinator Norv Turner to an absolutely shocking resignation. As if the laundry list of injuries wasn’t enough for them to overcome, now they have to replace one of the best offensive minds the league has ever seen.
Well, Turner was one of the best offensive coaches in the NFL, but his mindset and schemes are outdated – especially for the Vikings. Without Turner, the Vikings are actually better off.
