    Re: 13-3, Vikings Win Out!!!!

    If you're 13-3 I think it's considered bad manners to fire the coach!

    I'll go out on a limb here:

    I don't think it's Tice.

    Persoanlly, I think it's the fact that our Former owner (Whom I shall not name) selected Coaching candidates based not upon who would be the best coach in Minnesota, but based upon who would work the cheapest.

    Case in point #1: Ted Cottrell. The man took a decent Jet's defense, rode them to the top, then drove them face first into the dirt. As the Viking's DC and Linebackers coach, he has ranked at the bottom of the list since his tenure began...with the most glaring problems (in terms of confusion and missed assignments) occuring at the Linebacker position - the position he spends the MOST time with. If the Linebackers - his personal charge - can't figure out his schemes and are out of position, what does that say for the state of the rest of the "D"?

    Case in point #2: Steve Loney. Who? While I was never a big Linehan fan, Loney hasn't shown us bupkis. We are a deep ball team, that's how we're built. Trying to force us to play any other way is foolish...yet that's exactly what he's doing. I don't think that Loney was ready...he was simply there and cheap.

    Now, some will argue that Tice himself falls under that classification as well...but there's something about Tice. He's grown each year as a HC, and I now believe that he fits the job. Give him a REAL set of coordinators and assistants and he really COULD take us the distance.

    Sure, he makes bad calls from time to time...show me a coach that doesn't. But, for some reason I still feel like he fits the job. So, keep Tice, give him a REAL staff, and watch us go the distance.

    That's pretty much what I said in another thread. Loney back to the O-line & if Cotrell has to stay demote him. It's the rest of the coaches down the line. The coaches that were hired because they "Would work for food", minimum wage, Mc Donald gift certificates or whatever else the "Red" budget allowed. That's what bothered me the most. No real talent down there, just coaches that would work cheap under the "Red" budget".
    We now have the "Wilf" budget & the sky's pretty much the limit. I expected there would have been coaching changes this year, but by the time Wilf officially owned the team, Linehan was already gone, the coaching staff was already set, & mini training camps had begun. It was too late. What I fail to understand is why a full-time O-Line or OC wasn't hired before the season to keep Loney from doing both jobs. Part time OC & part time O-line coach = part time offense & part time offensive line.

    Who fire the Head coach after a 13-3 season?
    If I was Tice, I would do a George Costanza and bow out, leave on a high note.

    No, that is my point. Does(will) it prove Tice's coaching skills. I think it has to be accompanied by showing he runs the team to a T.

    Wilf needs to make a checklist now of what he thinks Tice has to do in order to be coach next year. Otherwise if he would get put into this position, it is to easy to say here is a contract, go get'em Tice.

    If I was Wilf, I would pull a Jerry Jones. I wouldn't be vocal, but I would be watching.
