    What the hell good would cowher do with no other changes in the FO?

    It isn't like he is any kind of talent guru or anything. His success was a product of a great FO in Pittsburgh more than he coaching acumen. Or have you forgotten the "Slash" era?

    I said it's a good place to start. Cower > Frazier

    They are both going to need good players, which is the FO & scouts responsibility and I've said we need a GM, but IMO, Cower would do much better with the same crop of players than Frazier would.

    It starts by Zygi getting himself, Mark, and Leonard OUT of the football decision making process. Until that happens, we're going to go in circles.

    That is like saying you are going to build a house by setting the walls before you build the foundation. Short term it might work but over the long term it won't.

    Cowher is not going to solve anything and plugging him into the HC position. If you think you can take a successful SB winning coach, plug them into a dysfunctional FO and succeed, then I would like to offer the examples of the Dolphins hiring Jimmy Johnson, The Redskins bringing back Gibbs and Hiring Shanahan.

    They need to get a premier GM to come in and build the whole organization from the ground up all the way from the mail room to the secretary to the trainer, the scouting staff and most importantly the right head and position coaches.

    The Vikings are so far away from that right now that it is going to be a very rough road until they come to their senses and do the right thing.

    I don't think Cowher would come our of retirement to walk into a situation where his boss is going to be the owners nephew, brother, son or some bullshit like that, with no real football knowledge.

    IMO Wilf wanting someone high profile is the best case scenario for us. A lot of the times these guys have GMs in mind they want to work with, or maybe the current GM will be left with the title only. To land someone like Cowher, Wilf will have to convince him well before hand that this isn't a family first operation.
