2018 Offensive Coordinator: Norv Turner
Is new arrival Norv Turner the right mind to figure it all out for the Carolina Panthers?
That’s hard to say. Quarterback Cam Newton took 35 sacks last year trying to air it out, throwing for 3,302 yards with 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. His lack of help has become an internet meme, something his team-leading 754 rushing yards and six ground scores reinforced.
The Panthers are insistent on giving Christian McCaffrey,cheap nfl nike jersey 2017’s No. 8 pick, a bigger workload, but he’ll still get close to 113 targets again and partake in a rotation.
On paper, first-round rookie D.J. Moore might be able to help right away, provided he can buck the brutal pro learning curve for first-year wideouts. He might end up being redundant with Curtis Samuel, last year’s second-round pick, as they’re each potential slot guys at 6’0″ or shorter. There could also be an over-reliance on primary receivers Torrey Smith and Devin Funchess, which isn’t guaranteed to work.
No matter how it shakes out, the Panthers should have a respectable offense, provided Newton can keep alive his incredible streak of staying mostly healthy.
2018 Offensive Coordinator: John DeFilippo cheap nfl jerseys china nike
Can something close to the same offense that produced a strong year from Keenum help Cousins improve?
John DeFilippo, former quarterback coach for the Super Bowl-winning Nick Foles, aims to try. Cousins flirted with what some call the Andy Dalton Line last year—a designation for the league’s most average players—hitting cruise control for 4,093 yards and 27 touchdowns but not elevating the talent around him.
If he’s lucky, Cousins will have it better in Minnesota’s system.nike nfl jerseys cheap china It’s easy to forget about Dalvin Cook, last year’s No. 41 pick, who ripped off 354 yards and two scores on a 4.8 per-carry average before going down with an ACL tear.
Cook returns to prop up a passing game led by 91-catch man Adam Thielen, as do wideout Stefon Diggs and tight end Kyle Rudolph, who both scored eight times a year ago.china nike nfl jerseys cheap
Paired with a strong defense, the Cousins-led offense should put up good numbers, though there may be an adjustment period. The Vikings will go as far as their new franchise quarterback can take them—in offensive ranks and the win column.
