    Tice has made some bad calls...sure. How many coaches haven't? From time to time, there are mixed signals and bad decisions.

    But, I see a consistancy of effort with Tice. He recognizes that we are not where we need to be Defensively, and he comes right out and says it. He doesn't hide from issues, he tackles them head on. He doesn't blame the players, or the owner (whom he SHOULD blame), he takes it on himself.

    THAT, true believers, is a "Stand Up Guy". I'll take one of them over a whip-cracker any day.

    Look at Coughlin in NY. He's a ball buster, and his team responded for crap to it. They fell apart worse than we did. Parcells takes no crap, and Dallas isn't going anywhere soon. Shanahan coached at Elway's pleasure until John retired...yet Shanahan is known as a hard guy.

    It isn't about being a hard ass, it's about consistancy. Tice has that.

    You want character...let's spend a mid- to late-round pick on this guy...he sounds like the kind of guy that could be a sleeper that could become a long-term player in the NFL at MLB.

    Lol! What, you're the coach now? I can imagine how you would deal with the media.

    Edwards is hilarious. On the NFL Network they have the show "In their Own Words" and Edwards is the man!

    kramer, I'm proud of you.

    It's hard to look past blind fervent loyalty and see your team's problems for what they are.

    I know we Packer fans have the same problem at times, and we don't like to be told stuff we don't want to hear, as true as it may be.

    If I bought the Vikes, that character and leadership issue would have been the first thing I would have taken care of, starting by trading Moss.

    I think you guys will be surprised in about three years at what an important junction this was for the Vikes.
    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.
