    Re: Tony Dungy Stepping Down!

    [size=13pt]Dungy is an even better person than coach[/size]

    I have made many friends in my long sportswriting career, and this is one I really treasure. Dungy will do even greater things after his retirement from coaching.

    Brad Johnson?! I can't name 2 receivers.. Koren and Twill perhaps.

    Zygi should have hired a GM.. but still there's no way Tomlin would have been our HC after that season
    Haha... so he was good enough for the Steelers but not for the Vikings?

    He has a better winning % than Childress because he was/isn't good?


    I know more people than just me were wishing we had kept Tomlin as our Coach and gotten rid of Childress that year... I don't think you're "no way Tomlin would be our HC" holds any water...

    Career Records:

    Tomlin - 23-11
    Childress - 24-25
    Who gives their HC who has signed a 5 year offer only one year to prove himself?
    The people who - like you - wanted to fire Childress after that year probably just were looking for instant success...

    Never did i say he wasn't good i'm just saying there's no chance he would still be on our staff the next season.
    Instant success is not an unreasonable goal in the NFL free agency era if you hire that right coach.

    Examples:

    Bill Belichick, won the Sb sophmore season in N. Eng.
    (I realizem he had help by bending the rules.)

    Mike Smith made the playoffs his rookie sesaon in Atlanta.

    John Harbaugh has led hie team to the AFC championship game in his rookie season, with a rookie QB.
    (I believe this team is destined to win this week and quite possibly the SB.)

    Mike tomlin.

    There are more, but I hope you get the picture.
    Yeah, some of us want to win NOW!

    Comeon my friend.
    To try to compare the Chiller to Tomlin based on wins and losses is crazy talk.

    One had to gut a team, the other inherited a team that had just recently won a SB.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
