Said Schwartz: "There's still some things for (Teddy) to figure out, but it does make it a lot easier for quarterbacks. And it makes it a lot easier for wide receivers, when you know you're going to be one-on-one for a significant portion of the game, and that's what Adrian Peterson does."
Turner did commendable work with Bridgewater in 2014, helping the first-rounder to arguably churn out the best tape of any rookie quarterback. Schwartz expects much more from all phases of the offense in Year 2 because of Peterson, who he called the "best in the business at getting guys out of place."
Especially in a Turner-led scheme that historically feeds its running backs. Emmitt Smith, Terry Allen, Stephen Davis, LaDainian Tomlinson, Ricky Williams and Frank Gore all notched 1,300-plus yard campaigns under Norv's watch.
The Vikings have emerged as offseason darlings, with plenty of pundits hoisting up Minnesota as future playoff material in the rugged NFC North.
We need to see more from Bridgewater before signing on, but after Peterson single-handedly tugged a Christian Ponder-led squad into the postseason in 2012, it's not crazy to suggest that A.P. can do the same with a more talented team come September.
