    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.

    We had an extra large 3rd grader riding our 20 speed bike for crying out loud.

    Denny is a higher motivation guy. Kind of reminds me of Ray Rhodes a bit, but guys like that seems to just run out of gas. It's like they can just get you motivated for a while, but eventually you just get sick of it.

    Tice is a meathead. He tries too hard to be the buddy. You don't respect the buddy. When the buddy gets mad at you, you get mad at the buddy. So, the buddy has to pussyfoot around you (Moss) to motivate you.

    I'd take Green over Tice in a heartbeat.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    Welcome to the NFC North.

    Alright i'm not saying Tice is the next great thing, but if Green was such a great coach then why did we can him, and i looked at those draft picks and i can't recall any of them becoming defensive stars for us so i wouldn't say he did all that good.

    Green ended up being canned cuz they got smacked around in the NFC Championship, and then came out and was 5-10....he resigned right before the Monday Night game @ Baltimore, in which my favorite quarterback ever (Spergen Wynn, God, does anyone remember that guy?)<<that was sarcasm by the way....threw some terrible passes and lost us the game, and the Vikes finished 5-11.

    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
    Green was canned for a number of reasons, the top one being, IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE. He was behind the awful NFC drubbing and let Moss run his trap at Carter and Culpepper and did nothing about it. The following year the team never recovered from the loss of the game or Korey Stringer and the coach lost them. Tice looked good winning his final three games his first full year as coach and if he could figure out how to hold on to great starts could find his niche.

    I actually like both of them. I think Green was great in the purple, but his time was up. I think Tice at least gets one season with a team that has spent some money and we can see finally what he can offer.

    You know what makes a good coach? One that motivates the team! Tice has yet been able to motivate them, therefore Denny takes the cake.

    HOW CAN YOU NOT MOTIVATE A TEAM THAT STARTS OUT 6-0, AND GOES ON TO LOSE TO EVERY SORRY @$$ TEAM IN THE LEAGUE! THEN YOUR KNOCKED OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS....WITH THE LAST PLAY OF THE SEASON?

    No wonder Green Bay made it both years, they knew they could count on us losing!

    We need a different Coach in my book!

    Better Coach?

    There are a few coaches that can really stand the test of time...where they don't burn a team out on their own attitutde. Burns, Lombardi, Billick, Shula are all guys who coached in a way that kept the team in the game after year.

    Most coaches burn out a team, though. Parcells is a great example. Cowher is one who may be making the transition...though he probably should have been fired years ago.

    Green wasn't a bad coach...but most coaches only have 5-8 years in them before you need a change.

    Tice is just a bad coach.
