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.
you got that right, NO top HC is going to put himself into that kind of clusterfuck.
put the pipe down Singer..Cowher isnt EVER going to come here (other than to coach a team against the Vikes)
Back on the topic, the Vikings could start by not using the "ain't I tricky" plays left over from the Childress playbook to stop critical third quarter drives cold.
I have to shake my head when I see the play selection the Vikings use. It has not changed much from the pre-Favre Childress era, and it doesn't make a lot of sense.
If a team needs nine yards on a comeback pass, the receiver has to go 11 yards downfield. Three yard passes on third and long are low percentage plays. Linebackers and DB's have too much recover speed, as long as they don't play five yards off like the Vikings, to allow the YAC needed on short passes on third and long. Yeah, once in a while it will work, but again, it is low percentage playcalling that tricky plays cannot help in the long run.
