Vikings OC Norv Turner has been around a while. He's been an NFL coach for the last 31 years and has spent the last 26 as either a head coach or offensive coordinator.
He's worked with quarterbacks in the "great" tier (Troy Aikman), "very good" tier (Philip Rivers) and "solid" tier (Alex Smith).
And yet Turner recently said Sam Bradford's vision "is as good as any QB I've ever coached."
"I just think you get excited about a guy and you make that statement," Turner said, per the Vikings' official site. "I believe it’s true. That doesn’t take away from someone else and the way they play the game. Sam, he can anticipate. He sees what’s happening out in front of people. He can relate back to you what he sees and most of the time he’s pretty accurate.”
Bradford goes against his hold team this week, the Eagles, who have a defense that struggled against the Redskins in Week 6.

Week 7 vs. San Diego
Sam Bradford will return to face the team that traded him away this week. Is Revenge Factor a thing? Probably not, but it's fun to act like it is. Anyway, Bradford has been solid this season, tossing six touchdowns and no interceptions in four games. He hasn't hit the 300-yard milestone, though.
Looking at his Week 7 matchup, there's not a lot of reason to be optimistic. He gets a brutal matchup against the Eagles, and we expect Minnesota to run the ball at a higher rate.
Bradford will be a viable option most weeks, but this isn't one of those weeks. It's best to avoid him against Philly.
