    Better Coach?

    I was thinking about the Vikings today and a thought occured to me. who was the better head coach of the vikings. Dennis Green or Mike Tice. Alright let me just say some stuff that crossed my mind about it today. alright for sure Denny Green had more success with the Vikings he got to the NFC championship twice in a 3 yr span and pretty much the playoffs every year. But he did have a terrible track record with the draft, i can only recall Moss, Culpepper and Kleinsasser(not sure). When we had that awesome trio of receivers Moss, Carter, and Reed. And a good one-two punch in Smith/Hoard how could we not have excelled defensive thru the draft and made the super bowl? On the other hand Tice's group has started out strong the last two years but then stumbled at the end of the season. But Tice has drafted a Pro Bowl DT and some promising young players. If Tice had had the offense that Green had, you think tice would have got the Vikes to a super bowl?

    No, Tice probably would have faked the FG in 98 and we would have lost that way.

    Both of them suck.

    Better Coach?

    Robert Smith was Dennys first ever pick.

    Actually, Denny had great success with the draft. His only blunder was what he called his "Extra" first round pick and selected D. Underwood from Michigan State who never played a single down for us.

    Denny could get the talent, just couldn't get them to play together.

    I thought the opposite.

    I thought Denny was a better motivator than Tice. Denny got them to play at a consistant level 10 plus win seasons with no choking the last 6 weeks of the season.

    So you are saying Denny was only as good as the team and the team only did well because they were so talented?

    wasn't Green canned because of Moss? Or did he get canned for getting our butts kicked by the Giants in the NFC game. I never knew for sure Minnesota news never travels to New Mexico all i hear about is Cowboys, Cards and Packers for some god forsaken reason people down here are cheese heads

    The problem I had with Tice is he might be ready to finally take the training wheels off of his bike. Too bad his daddy Red, took gears 16 through 20 off of his bike and ship them to Oaktown to put on Norv Turner's (equivalent to L.Armstrong) bike. We had all those gears all those years and couldn't do anything with them. Finally made the playoffs with Tice this year.

    That is what sucks.
