Re: Frazier is used to making order out of chaos
That is what I was referring to. I thought, at the time and still do, that Tice got screwed. The orginazation had gone on the cheap. Players AND coaches were let go to save the team money. Tice had to work with a skeleton coaching crew. Then we hire a coach whose prior boss didn't have enough faith in him as an OC to allow him to call the plays during the game, and he was given carte blanche to hire a staff with no limits. Don't get me wrong, after the hire, I got on board because he was our head coach, but I wasn't looking through rose colored glasses either. It wasn't until after 1 1/2 years(?) of watching his ineptitude that I began calling for his head. I could be wrong, but I believe if Tice had been given the same opportunity to spend money as Childress, he would have produced far better results. There is no way to prove that, it is just my opinion. And I also thought the love boat was not much of a big deal. Most of the guys I know would have been in the same boat as the Viking players had they been in the samme situation. As a matter of fact a lot of us have, we just don't have the media making a story of everything we do. Anyway, those years are past us. I do like the hire of Leslie. I also like most of his hires, sans OC, and hopefully he,(Musgrave) proves me wrong.
