    A Look at the Key Cogs in the Minnesota Vikings Coaching Staff

    [size=13pt]A Look at the Key Cogs in the Minnesota Vikings Coaching Staff[/size]


    I will take a brief look at the three members of the Vikings' coaching staff who will have the most say in the team's success in 2009....

    [size=13pt]Five Personnel Questions That Could Impact the Minnesota Vikings' Playbook[/size]


    On the coaching front, the Vikings’ offseason moves were those of a team content with its schemes.

    The handful of new faces on Minnesota’s staff—an assistant special teams coach, a player development assistant, and an assistant to the head coach—aren’t exactly the makings of a shake-up, and head coach Brad Childress will go to work with the same group of coordinators that ran the show in ’08.

    Some good stuff in those article's, thanks singer. The coaching staff needs to show us that they can make game day changes in real time, to help that offense get out of it's predictable rut. Of course we are a predominant rushing team, but the addition of Harvin, and a healthy Rice should enable us to be more explosive in key situations.

    With the possible suspension of Pat, and Kevin, Coach Frazier will depend on Fred Evans, Leroy Guion, and the resurected Jimmy Kennedy to step up. I think we will be OK against the run, but we will blitz a little more on passing downs if we cannot generate pressure. Throw Robison into that mix.

    I didn't know we allowed the 7th highest sack total last season, and now we have a new center, and a new RT, either Hicks, or Loadholt, with Cook sliding back to center. Lets hope they come together as a unit, and gell through OTA, Camp, and pre-season.

    If we don't sign Farve, Sage and TJ will be a interesting battle. At first I thought it would be TJ's job to lose, but now I'm not so sure. Sage has a better 11-20 yard completion percentage than TJ, and unlike Tarvaris, he doesn't favor the right side, and spreads the ball around the field better. This should make Berrian more of a threat linning up on the left side. Sidney should be healthy and improve over his 15 catch, 141yrd season last year. The wild card here is will Harvin take the slot away from Wade. I don't think so, if our coaching staff has any imagination, they will line this kid up every where from a split backfield with AP, to slot, and out wide. Putting him in motion and different formations will be what I'm looking to see from Bevell, and Childress. Can we create mismatches, and modify our gameplan as the game is played is where I look for the coaching staff to improve.

    Prior to the Brad Childress era, the Vikings had a reputation for cycling through defensive coordinators because they couldn’t find one that could field a respectable unit with any consistency.

    Over the past three years, Minnesota has faced a more encouraging problem: The team’s stout defense keeps producing candidates for head coaching positions.....

    Our defensive coach is a product of the system brought in by an "offensive guru"?
