    Written by

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Vikings have targeted Norv Turner as the offensive coordinator under new coach Mike Zimmer. 

    At first glance, you'd think hiring the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator is completely foolish. That's what Turner was, until the team cleaned house after the season.

    Instant replay is ruining sports.

    Sure, it helps get calls right … eventually … sometimes. But it sure takes a long time to get that call right.
