    Re: Will Tomlin's cover two improve vikes d?

    we have good LB'S, LEBER is a playmaker,N. HARRIS is a baller as well, we just had the WORST coaching staff last couple ,we almost doubled the coaching staff this year, coaching makes the BIGGEST difference in the NFL, everybody in the league can play, talent with coaching goes so much further than,talent without coaching.

    In the long run, it's a system that will improve our results. As far as next season goes, I would be happy with the same results as last year. Remember how long it took for it all to click when the guys had to learn Cottrel's system. I wouldn't expect quick results, but when it's all said and done we'll have an outstanding D.

    Anyways the D will be better because Cottrell couldn't coach. Tomlin hopefully can.
    yeah he would change everything every week, something would work great then he'd change the scheme too much

    How could they possibly be an worse?

    .... Not replace the veteran FAs they released or unsigned

    .... Not pursue a legitimate play making FA that actually can play the cover 2! (Leber is no Witherspoon!)

    .... Not draft the best LBs to play that type of defense and outside of Sims and DeMeco Ryans, or Thomas Howard, what other LBs in the draft do the Vikings really have a shot at drafting and plugging into this defense from day one?

    Again, the question of how could it possibly get any worse? You tell me!

    BigMo, I am a big fan of seeing D'qwell in the cover-2, kid is a leader, smart and great in coverage. We could get him in the second.

    I like leber alot. He seems like a good add-on, we just didnt want to pour the money into will that he would have needed

    You can never tell until you see them play.
    But based on all the changes, they should be better.
    Better coaching(yet to be determined).
    Better scheme.
    Healthy K Will , Smoot and Udeze.
    Upgrade to linebacking core(yet to be determined).
    I didn't like losing B Will and I still think we need to draft a blue chip linebacker.
    But over all we should be better; and could be much better.

    Just envision a team with a pass rush that can also stop the run. A team that can shut them down on third down.
    Then add an offense that can run the ball.
    Fantasy? Probably, but I hope not.

    You might want to change your poll. Not a lot of room for optomism in asking if they will rank about the same or lower.lol!

    I just went with lower to make sure I was right.. We should be alot better for the simple fact that we are better off as a team. We have new disciplined coaches, a new owner that is willing to do things to help us win, and new and old players that are talented enough to get it done..
