    Let's all hope that either Zygi turns out to be a Football Savant, or he gets over himself real fast and scurries back to the owners box.

    You are putting a spin on the story to make it sound like Zygi would be running the draft and calling the plays.
    That isn't so.
    If you read the interview, he said he would be more involved, but not to the point of making day to day decisions.
    He said he would try to spur discussions about different aspects of the organization and leave the decision making up to the football guys.
    I have no problem with that.
    I agree that we need a real GM though, but I don't see it happening any time soon.

    Rogers staying
    Friday, January 12th, 2007

    The Miami Herald reported this morning that Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers has turned down the offensive coordinator’s job at the University of Miami. One source told the Herald that the Vikings gave Rogers a pay increase to stay in Minnesota.

    Meanwhile, it appears as if Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin will get a second interview with the Dolphins for their head coaching job. Word out of Pittsburgh is that Tomlin also really impressed the Steelers when he interviewed with that franchise.

    Tomlin remains a long shot for these jobs but this is exactly what most figured would happen. Once Tomlin got in front of an owner it was a slam dunk that he would impress.

    Not to hijack the thread - but that's the truest thing I've seen written about Tomlin and interviews.
    He's smart and going to be a HC in the future and these early interviews are what you do to get that out there once you have the experience.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    If Wilf is smart, he hires the best football people to run his team...and gets the heck out of the way!!!!
    GM is definitely a priority!

    Possibly I am projecting "Worst Case Scenario", but aren't you brushing it under the rug?
    Even if the two ideas meet in the middle, I don't see it being in our best interest, for one simple reason - Zygi Wilf is NOT a Football guy.
    He stated in his interview that he didn't think that the "fans perspective" should be overlooked...trying to justify his perspective as valid.
    That, to me, is paving the way for him to make calls that should be left to a GM.

    Not something I look forward to.

    Re: Rogers on his way out?

    Rogers staying: The Vikings apparently don't have to worry about losing quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers to the University of Miami (Fla.).

    The Miami Herald, citing a person familiar with the Miami coaching situation, reported Friday that Rogers rejected an offer to become the school's offensive coordinator.
