Turner’s experience, savvy a huge plus

You’ve got questions and comments that you submit to the Browns’ official Facebook and Twitter pages. Here’s what I have to say about what you have to say:

Randy – Norv Turner is a class act. He’ll bring a “leading-with-quiet-confidence” approach. No bluster and smack-talk nonsense; just good, solid coaching. The shaky Browns organization and fledgling new staff need his experience and savvy. They have MUCH work to do, and Norv is great to have onboard.

I agree with your assessment, Randy.

What you’re talking about is stability, and that comes from not only Turner’s low-keyed personality and approach, but also from has vast experience.

The 27 years he has spent coaching in the NFL, including 14 as a head coach, are vital to helping the Browns’ offense make major strides and to the overall guidance of the team.

As a first-year head coach, Rob Chudzinski no doubt will lean heavily on Turner and look to him for counsel and wisdom whenever he needs it.

And during the ups and downs of a typical NFL season, it will be immensely helpful to the entire coaching staff to have Turner’s ability to keep things as calm as possible. That applies every bit as much to the good times as it does the struggles.

Most of all, the Browns will benefit from Turner’s teaching. He will be an extremely helpful voice in the ear of each of the quarterbacks and to every member of the offense.

On top of that, he will bring his deft play-calling touch, something that is recognized throughout the NFL as being as good as anyone has seen from any coach in league history.

Yes, there is plenty of work to do. But Turner, along with the rest of the coaching staff, appears to be more than qualified to handle it.
