Vikings OC Gary Kubiak to retire


Recommended Posts

Zimmer is 0-5 on the OC side, would you sign up to be next OC knowing your career depends on Kirk Cousins for the next 2 seasons ?

Norv Turner
Pat Shurmur
John DeFelippo
Kevin Stefanski
Kubiak
?

Yeah, but didn't Shurmur and Stefanski leave for head coaching gigs? I can't remember on Shurmur, but I think that he did. 

40% head coach promotion rate the last 5 years is pretty solid lol.

Minnesota had a very good offenses with Shurmur, Stefanski and Kubiak. Cousins has been good, but not great. He's being overpaid but besides the first month of this season he's never been a liability. Even with his funk, he's still very likely a consensus top 15 QB in the NFL. Saying we are 0-5 with the OC position is silly. 

Both Shurmur and Stefanski left for HC jobs.

What are you talking about?

fair enough.
There was dissent when Norv Turner left, but not for those guys and Stefanski is killing it in CLE
Its also reasonable to point out that Kubiak is a very- well respected coach and his retirement wasn't performance-related.

Like Schefter said, I think there are a lot of older guys in front offices and coaching that are calling it quits this year after Covid. They dont want to deal with the time investment, travel, exposure, ect anymore at their ages.

Uh, Kirk Cousins is pretty good.

Aren't you a DVOA guy? He's been in the top 10 the past 2 years in DVOA.

So long as we bring in someone who runs a zone blocking scheme we'll be fine offensively. Zimmer needs to fix that defense and we need a new kicker.

Wouldn't you guys just promote Rick Dennison given he runs the same offense if that's the plan?

Probably, actually, that's probably what's going to happen.

I was hoping if the Vikings staff got let go that we'd target him if someone hired Smith away from us.

Such a great offensive mind.

I always thought he was over hyped I valued him as a head coach seemed to be a stabilizing presence while also being very patient.

His offense seems to be archiach compared to Shanny, Mcvay , and Kevin S in cleveland.

Wanted Kubiak for years as the 49ers head coach before he was hired. He really helped Steve Young have his best season in 1994. Crazy that he was OC in Denver for a decade before he got to be a head coach. Sucks to see him go.
