    Well, if Winfield shores up our secondary, like we think he's going to do, the hiring Cottrell has already paid off. The fact that Cottrell was here was sited as one of the main reasons Winfield postponed his meeting to sign with the Jets, and came here to hear us out. That reason was also repeated by a couple of our other free agent acquisitions, but Winfield is the only one I can specifically remember. As for his on the field acumen, he did real well with the defense in Buffalo, but not quite as well with the Jets. I don't know the reasons behind that, but I know that he was respected throughout the league as a good coordinator during both of his previous assignments. I think he will work out quite nicely in Minnesota.

    Cotrell has already paid off, and will continue to pay off as time goes on. He was a great hire for us.

    Cottrell struggled with the jets because of a large lack of talent on the d side of the ball. They had 2 good players, and the rest were old or sucked. With the talent he has to work with here, he should do really well. Hopefully when he does do well, he sin't snatched away from us immediately, for a head coaching job somewhere else. Expect us to at least have a top 10 D this year.

    Well if the draft is any way to judge him I think he is going to do fine as 4 of the first 5 picks this year were defensive.
    can we clone Bud Grant?

    It might take him a little while at first because its a new team with new players with talent he has to see yet. Remember we have to not have a ton of injuries to field a good d, hope you guys didnt forget about that part. We could have a lot of good players but still field a below average d with the rash of injuries every team faces each season. We need some luck along with out talent.
