    Re: New Vikings Offensive Coordinator!?

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. Maybe I look at it this way because Singletary is more well known. I thought about the idea that Pagac has already worked in the system but to me, Singletary would probably be more on the same page with Frazier than Pagac. They played together in a system that was one of the best ever in the history of the league.

    When all is said and done they know more than I do so I have to trust their decision. To me, logically speaking from what I do know I would think Singletary would be a better fit as the DC.

    Exactly what I was thinking

    Singletary's perfect job is DC

    When I was told he was being interviewed.. I said PLEASE BE DC!!

    I have not seen much from Pagac. Perhaps he had to work in Frazier's scheme, but I do not see that changing much with Frazier in charge. One must question if Pagac will be just a yes-man to Frazier like Bevell was to Childress.

    The Vikings may be better off with a pressure defense. Frazier and Singletary certainly know enough about the 46 and Tampa 2 to figure out something that will work.

    I'm not so sure I agree with that point my friend. Rodgers was the only winning QB to break 300 that won.

    IMHO, its a defensive league now. You wanna get to the dance, you bring a damn good defense and a balanced offense that can exploit what the other teams defense can't stop.
    You don't have to pass for 300+ yards to be considered a passing team.

    Passing teams are those teams that pass a greater percentage of the time.

    BUF 2 * 1000 yds seasons! PIT! KC! NO with Ditka! That track record tells me he probably knows about making the running game a focus!

    Why is he no longer OC in Buffalo or any other team? a coach that is supposedly that good shouldn't have had to take a demotion from an OC to a QB coach, should he?
    Steelers? Giants? Both can throw and win but when they won super bowls it was with a run first philosophy. There's not only one way to win in the NFL.
    When the Steelers won that last SB, Bib Ben passed for 256 yards (30 attempts). Their total rushing offense in that game: 58 yards (25 attempts).

    When the Giants won that last SB, Tit Baby manning passed for 255 yards (34 attempts). Their total rushing offense in that game: 101 yards (26 attempts).

    Both teams were passing more than throwing.

    Giants got to the superbowl though by playing great defense and having 3 rushers almost hit 1000 yards. They were without a doubt a run-first team, but could pass when they wanted.

    Steelers though, under Tomin have been a passing team. Ever since the Bus and Willie left, their run game has been very weak.

    Re: New Vikings Offensive Coordinator!?

    According to PFT, McDaniels to the Rams may be falling through. Also says that we are interviewing Musgrave.

    Josh McDaniels may not head to St. Louis after all
    Posted by Michael David Smith on January 18, 2011, 11:38 AM EST
    Kansas City Chiefs v Denver Broncos

    Early this morning, former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels appeared to be ready to become the offensive coordinator of the Rams.

    But it doesn’t look like that’s the case anymore.

    Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that talks between the Rams and McDaniels are breaking down, and as a result the Rams are seeking permission to talk to other assistants to fill the role. Those assistants include the Falcons’ Bill Musgrave and the Vikings’ Darrell Bevell, but the Jaguars have denied the Rams’ request to speak with Jacksonville offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.

    Musgrave, meanwhile, is also interviewing with the Browns and Vikings over next the next two days for their offensive coordinator jobs, and Bevell could still end up remaining in Minnesota.

    Musgrave would also be a good addition. I believe that the McDaniels thing has flown the coop. Seattle will pay like a bunch of Drunken Sailors, and we cannot. I am not sure why Musgrave would look to take an OC job with us though, Falcons are younger and have some established stars. The situation with the Vikes not as well defined.

    McDaniels to St. Louis is a done deal

    Filed by myself and @AdamSchefter to ESPN: McDaniels to Rams as offensive coordinator is now a done deal.

    Just hope we have some sort of plan that does not include Bevell
