    Re: Head Coach Mike Shanahan Wants To Make A Comeback In 2010

    I'm afraid that the Vikes might get into the same situation as with Dennis Green.
    Chilly is lucky enough to get a great team together which wins with little coaching.
    The Vikes will do well enough for Chilly to keep his job, but will never make the SB.

    And just as with DG, the Vikes coordinators will come and then go on to win SB's (Dungy and Billick).
    Already Tomlin has done it.

    I'm seeing Shannahan, Gruden, Billick, and possibly Cowher and Holmgren available next year, all have won NFL Championships.
    I'm NOT endorsing any!!!

    I'm just saying I'm afraid the Vikes will do good enough to keep Chilly his job, but not close the BIG ONE.

    I believe if anything less than a Playoff Win this season, very good chance that Wilf hands Chilly his walking papers.
    If that did happen, I'de love to see Shanahan as the Vikings Coach.
    Espiecaly with the way Shanahan loves his RB's.
    I bet old Shanahan would love to be in charge of AD and CT.
    And we are built for his type of offense also.


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    That's the problem.
    Vikes will probably get that 1 playoff win.
    Then next year they might go 13-3 and by pass the WC and lose a close one at divisionals.
    Then next year win divsionals, but lose conference.
    Then a few injuries and no playoffs.
    Then playoffs wins then good records but losses... eventually we are 10yrs down the line and no SB.

    Also, CT is a FA after this year and I really doubt he will agree to a back-up job again.

    Shanahan, Billick, Gruden, and Holmgren are all decendents of Walsh's WCO, just like Chilly (mentored under Reid).
    So any would fit OK.

    But if Chilly does go, I'm hoping that Wilf goes with a proven vet NFL coach rather then a unproven coordinator.

    Won his only title with Dungy's team and then proceeded to turn that team into a shambles.

    I was mainly talking about Tice and Chilly.
    Green, Burns and the others before these guys did good.

    I deffinitely don't want Gruden here.
    What I've seen from previous jobs he never really did anything, except win with Dungy's team.

    One name for you: Rich McKay.

    That team fell apart with injuries the couple years after the super bowl win.

    He won a Super Bowl with an excellent defense running the Tampa 2, a good running back, and mediocre QB talent.

    Sounds awfully familiar to me.



    What did Shanahan win his rings with?

    A 2000 yard rusher, and John Fucking Elway.

    What happened when those two were done? One playoff win in 9 years.

    People criticize Schottenheimer like crazy for his playoff performances, but the truth is, for the better part of the last decade Shanahan has been no better. Where are the calls for Marty?

    Shanahan I can only see him going somewhere like Dallas. He would play along with How Jerry Jones runs that operation if he was paid enough. Plus if any Coach was to come in coach after Childress. I would be hoping for Tony Dungy but I am pretty sure he has desire to coach anymore.

    Tice was rushed into a HC job, having not been a coordinator, and the main reason IMO was Red McCombs could get the guy cheap.
    Tice was paid less than several NFL coordinatiors.
    Tice was also hampered by the ability to hire a coaching staff of any quality, because the coaches knew Red wanted to sell the team and Tice was just a interm coach till then.

    Also, please name one FA, even close to the caliber of Hutch or JA, that Red paid for?


    Red bought the Vikes at a rock bottom price for a NFL franchise, put as little $$$ as he could into the franchise, knew that his cheapness would eventually hurt the team, so he sold them quick once he realized a new stadium or a move to LA wasn't going to happen any time soon.

    So don't put it all on Tice's head, he made mistakes, but he wasn't given much of a chance either.
