    RIP Foge Fazio

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/12/02/man-most-responsible-for-marino-landing-in-miami-passes-on/

    (Coach) Fazio died today at 71 after a bout with cancer.

    He had a more tangible connection to the NFL, working for several teams as an assistant coach. Most notably, he served as defensive coordinator for the 1998 Minnesota Vikings, which went 15-1 in the regular season before losing to the Falcons in the NFC championship. He also worked as defensive coordinator in Cleveland, and he finished his career as a consultant for Vikings coach Mike Tice during the 2005 season.

    RIP Foge...

    He was the first coordinator that I ever really started to notice, being a younger fan in those years.

    RIP Foge.

    Condolences
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    Sorry to hear this bad news, R.I.P. Coach Fazio
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.
