OC Norv Turner Heaps Praise On Vikings QB’s

Matt Cassel

Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner spoke with KFAN-FM on Monday, praising his signal-calling corps of Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

“We’ve got a really, really good group,” he said, explaining that it won’t be hard to parcel out snaps in the apparent three-headed battle.

“We get between 120 to 140 snaps during a training camp day and that is plenty enough time for all the guys to work a rotation and give them bigger reps and evaluate them,” Turner said.

“I think that Matt Cassel has had an outstanding spring and is getting himself ready to really have a good year,” Turner said. “And we know Teddy’s been really, really impressive and a lot further along than I expected him to be.”

Turner even praised former first-round pick Ponder.

“Ponder, I know people like to beat up on him, but I’ve been impressed with Christian,” Turner said. “With his physical ability and the way he’s worked and the progress he’s made. He’s eliminating a lot of the negative plays.”

    Turner knows what he is doing – maybe not the best head coach, but among the top tier in the NFL as an OC.
