Thread: Who are the 6?
Re: Who are the 6?
Sounds like you think I'm some sort of Chiller supporter and have always been.
Truth of the matter is, I've been against the Chiller more than I have been a supporter, just so happens that I'm on his bandwagon of late.
Still dislike how he holds camp and how he gets a team ready. (Sorry Prophet, I know I promised not to get on that soapbox again)
Long story short, I believe a team can only be successful in this league if they have stability at the top.
Currently we have a HC that has demonstrated the ability to improve a team each year to the point that his team made it to the NFFC game and was one stupid throw away from making it to the SB.
Changing that cat out will do nothing but make us start all over again. The new cat will come in, bring in new assistants that he was buds with when he got fired the last time along with a whole bunch of has been players that are familiar with his scheme.
We will be forced to watch a team go 6-10, 8-8, 10-6 etc etc etc over the next 3 years as they rebuild something that really doesn't need to be rebuilt
What? what the heck happened to your "We are so full of talent that we can't even bring guys in and expect them to see the field" Comment? If we are as good as you said we were then we really only need a coach that can use them properly, which this one cannot. Quick question- We lost Billick to Baltimore and Tomlin to Pittsburgh. How much rebuilding did each of them do on the way to their SB's?
Don't get me wrong, I was happy the Chiller gutted the team even though I was unhappy to see Denny gut it. It had to be done. The 2005 Vikes were a mess and had very little talent on it at all.
"This team is not talent poor"
" This is the Plum Job in the NFL"
The current team is loaded with talent and even though it appears we are gonna have a bad year (remember the thread I did on teams that failed in thier respected Championship games), it was expected, especially when you consider the move we made at QB, the loss of our starting C for a good portion of the season, not to mention the loss of our best WR.
I agree- We should have traded TJ and kept Sage, Not let Birk go to Baltimore or put Moss in a situation where the coach couldn't handle him.
Add into that mix the little issue related to the whole CAP issue and the obvious effect it is having league wide when it comes to all the players that were tendered by the cheap assed owners instead of paying them, thus ensuring they would play this year.
You mean where TJ and Edwards were tendered and nobody wanted them? Yeah.
Again, not sure what you believe my philosphy is to maintain some sort of semblence of stability at the HC'ing position cause it the best thing to do, even though the HC does a few things I dislike, then yes.
I guess I will have to say that so that my whole philosphy
isn't blown out of the water.
But I digress........Back to my intial questions.......
What philosphy? :huh:
