5 Challenges Bill Musgrave Faces as New Minnesota Vikings Offensive Coordinator

The Minnesota Vikings have decided to go in a new direction at offensive coordinator by hiring Bill Musgrave, who was Atlanta's quarterbacks coach/assistant head coach last season.

The successful development of Matt Ryan and the overall success of the Falcons have the Vikings and their fans licking their chops at the possibility of points in the upcoming season (The Vikings averaged only 16.9 last year).

Those fans are ready for a successful offense without having to sell their souls and cheer for Old No. 4, and landing the highly sought after Musgrave was a huge step in the right direction.

It won't be all fun and games for Musgrave, though, and he'll have to help the offense over some hurdles if he wants to help them compete in a division with the Super Bowl Champion Packers, the Bears that lost to the Packers in the NFC Championship, and the quickly rising Lions.

With everyone's head still spinning from the hyper-speed free agency period, Musgrave is going to have to sort through the intense mess that is training camp in a cramped time period. Out of the multiple challenges he will face, five really seem to stand out.
