Judging from the comments coming out of Cleveland -- from the owner down to the wide receivers -- the first impression of OC Norv Turner's offense is the aggressiveness of it.
“Everything is downfield, and you get taught pretty quickly that you have to be well conditioned to play fast and play at a high level,” wide receiver Greg Little said. “I just like the way Norv thinks. He calls more post and go routes than I’ve ever run before."
Said wide receiver Josh Gordon: "Defenses will be shocked to say the least with how much we're running downfield."
The new offense has helped to make Gordon a favorite breakout candidate in the middle rounds. There was a nine-game stretch from Week 5 to Week 14 where Gordon played like a fantasy WR2. He averaged 3.9-71-.56, which projects to #14 WR numbers.
