    Re: Tice for coach of the year

    Thank you BIG C.


    Sure dungy pretty much has it on lock. BUT if we make it into the playoffs...Tice should atleast be considered in the Top 3.


    To take a 1-4 club to the playoffs is HUGE. Its not saying...TICE YOU ARE A FOOTBALL LEGEND NOW!!! no it means he didnt quit and he kept us going. Thiers alot more into coach of the year then just a record.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Re: Tice for coach of the year

    Tice does deserve credit for this team turning around they want him as the head coach so they keep winning games. He should get an extension from Wilf who should see the effort these guys are putting in to save Tice. I doubt it is as easy as some may think to go out and get two or three new people to just come in and take the jobs of head coach, O coordinator, and D coordinator so I don't know that there will be much of anychange in the coaching staff this offseason.

    Just because I don't buy into Tice being a hero doesn't mean I don't support him. By default he gets some credit.

    The Vikings organization can afford and should hire a top caliber coach. If you are satisfied with perennial 0.500 ball, more power to you. I am not.

    Re: Tice for coach of the year

    If something goes wrong it's Tice's fault. If something works out, it's because someone else did something. Please...

    The team has benefitted from Brad Johnson. But Johnson doesn't play on Defense or special teams.

    Johnson didn't bench Lewnski and Rosenthall and put in junior players to get job done. Johnson didn't "look K-Rob in the eye and say this guy is now OK". Johnson didn't trade Nat Dorsey for Melwin Fowler. Johnson did't bring in Rhome to give Loney some help at OC.

    This is NOT a knock on Johnson. He is a god-send. But give Tice some credit for the things he has done damnit! He hasn't scalped a super bowl ticket since... well... last super bowl. The fact is that he HASN'T.

    I say give Tice a nice handshake and a pat on the back as you escort him out of Winterpark. Thank him for the job he has done and apoligize to him for the spot McColmbs put him in and wish him well.

    Re: Tice for coach of the year

    When we very well could go 10-6 or 11-5 by the end of the year Tice would not be a perennial 0.500 coach and I don't think it is that easy to get coaches to come here as you do Prophet. I would like us to keep Tice and get two new coordinators for O and D but I don't think coaches would be as interested to come here as you do.

    Re: Tice for coach of the year

    I think he belongs on this team, maybe not as the HC, but he should not be shown the door IMO.

    There isn't a coach in the league, good or bad, that doesn't sink or swim with their supporting cast. Give Tice the award if you wish. Picture his name on the list of previous NFL coaches that have received the award. Doesn't bother me, there are plenty of 'greats' and 'not-so-greats' on the list. Yes, coach of the year has a lot of intangibles associated with it that we can't quantify no matter how hard we try. If he gets the award by some sort of miracle, then more power to him.

    I would make some major changes in the offseason. Is there a more unqualified head coach than Tice in the NFL? If so, I haven't been able to find one. He was a perfect fit for interim HC when Denny walked. That is where it should have ended.

    Tice's record as HC

    2001: 0-1
    2002: 6-10
    2003: 9-7
    2004: 8-8
    2005: 7-5 (let's pretend the final record is 11-5)

    Supposing the Viking finish off the season with Ws, Tice's record would be 34-31. I would call that 0.500 ball.

    I do not think it would be easy to get a quality HC to come to Minnesota. That doesn't mean I would be satisfied with mediocrity and wouldn't be doing everything in my power to get one to come to Minnesota.

    The Vikes will probably retain Tice and get new coordinators, I hope they don't. Walk the plank.

    Demand excellence.
