  1. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Another point is that when your heavy on the run and do get stuffed at the LOS, typically teams need the passing game to get back on schedule. No matter how good your run game is, there will be situations where the defense sniffs it out.

    I think balance is certainly key. I don’t think a powerful running game is needed to create balance. Seems recent winning is dependent upon either having a super star QB or having a great combo of defense and balance on offense. In the end, usually the super star QB prevails.

    I meant success as a HC in a second stint. Shurmur again failed.

    Have any of the Browns retreads been good elsewhere once fired? Besides Belichick of course. I feel like if you’re fired by Cleveland you’re baaically done as a head coach.

    I get the feeling that this is going to be a disaster for Stefanski.

    I think there has to be legit concerns about his health and a hesitancy to pay him. The return for a RB simply isn’t there, especiallly when you look at how productive RBs typically are in the Kubiak/Shanahan offense. If I could get a Scherff or Conklin in free agency and not have to pay my RB top dollar, I’d do it.
  7. Not since November. As the season went along and the competition improved, his average was well below 4.5. He ran wild on some bad teams early on and had that great game in GB week 2, but I don’t think you can point to his performance (and the OL) down the stretch to justify the commitment to the run game. It was a liability at the end of the day that seemed to force less than ideal third down situations.
  8. I’m optimistic that the offense will be better with Kubiak as the OC than the offense with Stefanski as OC. The OL needs to get better for the offense to pickup the slack of a declining defense.
  9. Brandon Brooks has been great in Philly. Winston had a solid career, but wasn’t he derailed by injuries? Duane Brown was good for awhile. Not too familiar with the rest of them.

    Hey you don’t turn the ball over that many times in a championship game and expect to go to the Super bowl. This isnt Detroit!

    Add another to Manning’s legacy. His team at least deserved to be there. The Vikes and the Saints didn’t deserve it that year.

    Basically the Vikes are the winningest team without a super bowl win. This is getting old. And I’ve only been a fan since 1997. Can’t imagine what it’s like for the older fans.

    One player doesn’t belong in that picture.
  14. Vikings promote Gary Kubiak to OC

    Given that Zimmer is the HC, I’m less concerned with loyalty to certain coaches as those type of decisions ultimately fall on Zimmer and the defensive staff is “his guys”. I get that Dennison is a packaged deal with Kubiak and that is bothersome, I think there is optimism having some consistency in that spot helps. Hopefully that leads to Bradbury improving. The Vikes are set at one tackle spot with O’Neill and Josh Kline is okay at one guard spot. MN really needs to find two OL to replace Reiff and Elflein.
  15. Zimmer just needs to mature as a coach and realize you can control the clock through the passing game. Running Cook to 3 yards per carry doesn’t sustain drives. Trusting Thielen and Diggs to move the chains is the better option.
