    His cheapness really reared it's ugly head when he gave Tice the HC job. Not only did he make him the lowest paid HC, but he didn't allow him [Tice] to spend money on decent qualified coaches to surround himself with. Thus we ended up with "Blue-Light Special" Ted Cottrell as our DC.

    When his OC, Scott Linehan left for Miami, Red didn't allow Tice to hire a new OC & told him to make due with what he had.

    Tice then had to make Loney pull double duty & be not only the OL coach, but the OC as well.

    Make no mistake about it, outside some of the star players salaries, Red was a tightwad.

    Not as bad as Erin or EJ but he is not an elite LB.

    AP had less than 80 yards rushing I think.

    Worse than Tyrell?

    No rebuttal here. After Red grew tired of the situation and wanted out he went on a fire sale that gutted the team. All I am saying is things started out well and then fell south and until we see how Wilf handles the next few years I am holding off judgement because it just might end up Deja Vu all over again.

    The odds of Wilf growing tired of it & either selling the team or moving them to LA are about the same as the Viking chances of signing over the hill veteran QB's during Wilf's ownership.

    Sounds right. I include the odds that I said in the pre season of the fans lasting about 4 weeks before giving up on McNabb.

    Some fans have been harping the past 4 years to bring McNabb in here. Every offseason since 2007 a new McNabb to MN thread would get started here.

    Trust me, I know that and when he signed with the Vikings I won a bet I made with my wife 5 years ago that he would play for the Vikings before it was all said and done. I would have rather paid up.

    I have Peyton Manning on my washed up QB of the future list right now. Not sure how long it will take for him to hit rock bottom but when he does we will be ready for him.
