I've seen people take a lot of shots at Linehan on this board but I have to agree with you. He is very well respected across this league for what he's done with the Vikings offense. And like others I disagree with the play calling from time to time, but come on...we are among the best in the league at 3rd down conversions, among the best in yardage gained, and among the best in total offense. The guy is doing his job...I agree, get off his back. From what I've seen, our problems on offense have come from poor execution by the players more so than poor play calling by Linehan. I think the Washington game demonstrated that.
I don't know why everyone wants to get rid of Linehan so badly! We have the #4 offense in the NFL. Do you think the Bears, or Ravens or Cleveland wouldn't be drooling if they had the chance to get him. I could see if we were ranked #25 in total offense, but c'mon! #4 offense in the NFL people!! Get off his back!
