Turner's record shows that most of his teams' running games improved dramatically the year he arrived. I think both Weeden and Richardson are going to benefit. 

Especially if they sign the best free agent guard out there - maybe that guy from San Diego will follow Norv to Cleveland.

But Turner has always called/coached a conservative offense.   Even with Dallas they essentially just out talented and out play called their opposition.  I don't recall them being remarkably aggressive. 

Again even assuming Turner is calling the plays in his playbook (and I don't think Chud's said who is calling plays yet) he's not going to be dictating the flow of the offense.   Chud is going to be doing that.   In the real world if Norv is calling plays the scenario is going to go something like up 3 in the 4th quarter with 5 minutes left to play and Chud tells Norv he wants to go vertical.  Norv is going to decide what play sequence he's going to call but it'll be end up with a vertical play.  Maybe that means a quick run followed by a p/a post route.    In SD Norv might have just played it safe and run 3 times. 

Still all subjective until we see how the philosophy meshes on Sundays.

Coincidence?

Turner has always been a conservative play caller.
Turner is #2 all time close game losing coach.

Question .  What is all this talk of an aggressive offense?

NT comes from the Gillman vertical tree & not the PB tree of modern offensive theory.

His mix didn't look too bad when he had Smith, Troy & Irvin lulling you to sleep with I back pounding & then the deep ball.

It's the D not letting that happen that worries me.

I'm seeing Kivi or Jones with pick one & some DBs via FA.

We'll see but whatever Lombardi decides will prolly suck.

We saw that in the 50s  Tittle, Shofner, Webster.  It was all  the Defense making it work. Norv got three talented players Aikman, Smith, irving and became a genius. Tucker has his work cut out.
