Offensive Coordinator Search: Gary Kubiak, New OC, Pg. 14

Recommended Posts

So again, it wasn't that Haslam wanted Berry, but moreso that Spiels and Company again convinced him to stay.  He's our version of Eric DeCosta.  Once Spielman decides to step down, Paton will be there.

Except running Cook to 4.5 ypc (his actual statistical average) does.  

There is no better option than running the ball to set up the pass because it wears defenses out. You just have to have right personnel to make it work. Cook was one of the best backs in the league and this offense would do well to bolster the offensive line because it didn't show up versus the 49ers. 

 

 

Like none of this is factual

I do wonder if it’s and indication that Spielman won’t be here past his current contract, whether that’s the owner’s decision or Spielman’s decision. 

I can’t imagine that Paton would be so willing to stay if the common thought was that Spielman would be around for a long time.

I’ve pleaded my case for this over the past few years to help out QB’s, but it does. I hope Kubiak can pick up on something new and use it.

Is the defense not allowed to touch the running back until 5 yard past the LoS scrimmage?

If not than the passing game probably does fine there as well without the running game "setting them up"

That's exactly what I immediately thought.

Surprised Gary is taking the OC job. Figured it go to Klint with Gary in the background no complaints though.

This just affirms my opinion that Paton knows he’s going to take over the Vikings job sooner rather than later.

I think it’s a little different for coaching candidates. John DeFilippo is a prime cautionary tale. It only takes one disappointing year for your star to fade, if not disappear.

As a coordinator, sure. But all the talk about his future as a HC was gone.
