    Apologies

    I would like to apologize for my conduct concerning the Ted Cottrell thread. I should not have been so rude and insulting.

    I did not mean to insult anyone (besides Cottrell), and I hope to make many more posts on this forum in the future. But I do not plan to insult those who disagree with me in any of my future posts.

    F THAT....although it was a little much...(all the talk about him dying)

    He needs to go...i don't care how many D-coordinators we've had inthe past 5 years...

    he needs to be out and so does Linehan

    Apologies

    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!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    we were number 1 last year and number two the year before behind the raiders so he is a good o-coach and if we did have a d i dont think he would be calling these crazy ass plays also

    Apologies

    I agree! There are a ton of teams that would love to be in the top 5 on offense year after year!

    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.

    Apologies

    I actually was apologizing for a part of the post (which I later deleted). Namely this:

    <quote="BBQ Platypus">Is there any moron out there who disagrees with me?</quote>

    Ted Cottrell is the only one involved who is a moron.

    Actually Ted is a really cool guy, who was brought in here to run his D, and hasn't been allowed too, do to personnel. Cotrell is a 3-4 D man, how many times did you see the Vikes run the 3-4 this year?

    Apologies

    I saw what looked like a 3-4 one play against Washington. The result? A SACK. It really threw off the 'skins, they didn't know who was coming. I'd love to see us go to a 3-4, maybe we pick up another speedy linebacker in the draft or FA.
