    Are You Crazy? This was a serious interview. Cortell knows the players and they know him. He know what they can do and our defence was much improved this year. I dont really like Cortell but he is better than Fassel.
    Huh?

    My left shoe could do a better coaching job than Ted!

    [size=18px]Cottrell interviews for Vikings' job; team meets with Caldwell[/size]

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Vikings continued their search for a new head coach on Wednesday, interviewing defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell.
    Cottrell is the architect of a big-play defense that became the team's strength over the second half of the season, leading the Vikings to a 7-2 finish after a 2-5 start.

    "Ted's a serious candidate," his agent, Joe Linta, said Wednesday night. "It's a real possibility he could get this."

    The affable Cottrell has coached in the NFL for 22 seasons but has never been a head coach. He has been the defensive coordinator for the Vikings for the past two seasons, and has received votes of support from several players on the team, including cornerback Antoine Winfield and Pro Bowl safety Darren Sharper.

    Linta said his client spent several hours interviewing with owner Zygi Wilf and others and was "very happy with how they conducted the interview and very impressed with how committed they are to fixing the problems that went on there this season."

    The Vikings, who have been tightlipped about the interview process and aren't commenting publicly, have also interviewed Philadelphia offensive coordinator Brad Childress and Kansas City offensive coordinator Al Saunders as potential replacements for Mike Tice. Vikings representatives also met with Colts assistant head coach Jim Caldwell on Wednesday in Indianapolis.

    Wilf has said he wants to make a decision quickly to avoid losing a coveted candidate to one of the seven other teams looking for coaches.
    The competition is heating up.

    Childress flew to Green Bay on Wednesday to interview with the Packers, and Saunders is considered a candidate for other openings, including replacing the retired Dick Vermeil as head of the Chiefs.

    The Vikings also have several other candidates on the radar, including New York Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis.

    Ron Rivera, the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears, has also been mentioned as a possibility. He said Wednesday that he has a meeting scheduled with St. Louis and has been contacted by other teams, but would not name them.

    Washington defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was considered a top candidate before he signed a three-year deal worth nearly $8 million to remain with the Redskins, a record contract for an NFL assistant.

    Wilf has other needs as well. The Vikings want to hire football boss to oversee personnel and act as a general manager, working alongside salary cap guru and vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski.

    Philadelphia's Tom Heckert was believed to be at the top of that list, but Heckert re-signed with the Eagles earlier this week, making the coaching opening a bigger priority.

    If Cottrell doesn't get the job, he will surely be a candidate for several defensive coordinator openings throughout the league.

    "He feels like he's put in his time and he's very flattered that they brought him in to be considered," Linta said.

    Can you imagine how thick & complicated his playbook will be if he has total control.

    Like the Twin Cities Phone book probably.

    The defense didn't grasp his current one until Tice tore some pages out of it.

    I seriously doubt that would happen though.
