    Tice could have used Goodell's muscle in '05

    http://www.startribune.com/510/story/1343247.html
    I love this quote from the article:
    Tice would have been better off with Roger Goodell as the commissioner,' " said Tice, the former Vikings head coach and current Jacksonville Jaguars assistant head coach-tight ends. "He seems to have stepped in and helped out some of the coaches who are going through some of the same things I went through. A lot of things I went through, people around the league are starting to find out that all coaches are going through. I'm just wondering why when it happened to me we were this out-of-control, undisciplined football team. And when it happens to some others, the league is stepping in."
    Tice admits her had lost control of the team!

    And this one where he said he talked too much:
    Asked what he learned from his four-plus seasons as Vikings head coach, he said, "My mistakes."

    What mistakes?

    "I'd say I've always enjoyed talking to the media, or anybody who would listen, but I think sometimes saying too much can be a damaging thing to your program," Tice said. "It's showing your hand.

He used to tell me, 'Michael, Michael, you have two ears and one mouth for a reason.'

    You lose control quickly when an old man has a hand up your butt.

    I wonder if he would have like Goodell when he was found scalping tickets.

    I like this part from the article:

    "We tend to forget Tice won a playoff game in 2004 at Lambeau Field and was fired after going 9-7 in 2005. Last year, new head coach Brad Childress went 6-10 and set team records for offensive offense."

    Don't get me wrong . . . I'm not a TICE fan.
    But I give credit, where credit is due and I believe we would be ahead of the curve at this point had we been able to keep the pieces . . . LINEHAN especially.

    Actually, the way things have ended up for CULPEPPER and MOSS, maybe we'd still be a mess!
    ;D

    Ironically, it's not even against the law to scalp tickets in MN now.

    People seem to forget that most were calling for Linehan's head while he was here. The grass is always greener I guess.

    I'm part of the "some".
    I like the guy and he seemed to really channel DC and get the most out of his sorry butt.

    I'm hoping under BC we can finally put together an Offense and Defense!

    No, Tice isn't admitting that he lost control of the team. He is saying that when it happened to him OTHERS were saying that the Vikings were an out-of-control, undisciplined football team.

    And he is right. They are not making as big a deal out of other teams & calling those teams out-of-control or undisciplined.

    I.E. Bengals for one.

    But then again the Vikings weren't a well loved team in the medias eyes.

    I remember Monday Night football when Howard Cosell was on there. He used to do a half-time show showing highlights from Sundays game.

    Rarely did he ever show the Vikings when they won.

    Yeah, Linehan pissed me off sometimes with his goofy playcalling.
    But he was a good O-coordinator for us.

    Vikings coordinators seem to be a farm for head coaches as of late; Dungy, Billick, Linehan, Tomlin.
    Kinda weird.
    (We should have hired Dungy as H.C. after Tice's one game in 2001.
    Stupid cheapass Red.)

    Story I heard back in the day was; Cosell was staying at the same hotel as the Vikings. Cosell was walking across the lobby when some Vikings on the balcony dumped a garbage can of water on his head, washing his toupe off.
    Not much love from high and mighty Howie after that!
