When the Cleveland Browns named Norv Turner as their offensive coordinator, the fans were excited. He came into Cleveland and the head coach and him stated what a great vertical offense the team was going to have behind the strong-arm of their soon to be 30-year-old quarterback.
Turner has yet to put any of his attacking vertical offense on display. As a matter of fact, his offense doesn’t look much different from the dink and dunk offense that Pat Shurmur ran with the Browns last season.
Turner has yet to show any reason the Browns brought him in as their offensive coordinator. His best days as an offensive coordinator may be behind him. He isn’t showing any of the down field passing attack the Browns were talking about during training camp and his team is now 0-2.
When a team takes a player, they make him take a physical. The Browns should have given Turner a physical to test his mental capacity when before signing him on as the teams offensive coordinator.
Turner is 61-years-old and he could be suffering from memory loss. It happens to the best of them and it could be taking a toll on turner. He doesn’t seem to remember what a vertical passing attack looks like.
His team is now through 2 games in the 2013 season and they are ranked out of the top 20 with only week one being calculated thus far. The Browns didn’t get any bargains when they brought Turner on board.
He doesn’t seem to be able to get things headed in the right direction. It doesn’t look like the Browns are an improved team and if things keep going the way they went in the first 2 games, it is going to be difficult to justify why Norv Turner is a part of the Cleveland Browns coaching staff.
