The Minnesota Vikings are hoping that new offensive coordinator Norv Turner will be able to breathe some life into the team’s offense and add some new dynamics that they were lacking under Bill Musgrave.
If the comments from Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings are any indication, that it appears to be clear that Turner will not be taking a simplistic approach and there could be some interesting wrinkles that will leave defenses guessing.
“My head is spinning,” Jennings said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Even though the offense is coming and it’s starting to sink in. Just with all the different change-ups we can present to the defense, the different looks, the different formations we can run the same play, the different variations that comes within the same play. Your head is spinning at all times until you have it down.
“The variations from one play to the variations of how we can get to that one play, is a lot. I’m being a little sarcastic with this statement, but it almost equates to what we had last year — just one play. It’s a lot.”
If the Vikings can find a way to build a formidable passing attack to take some pressure off of star running back Adrian Peterson, then the team could finally take the next step in their growth and finally emerge from the cellar of the NFC North.
