Who do you want for the next Vikings coach?

46 posts in this topic

Chilly has got to go. Never seen a coach do less with more. He is way out of his depth. The team was not prepared in any way, shape, or form on Sunday. He has no clue how to make a gameplan, much less how to use AP. Chilly has us on a collision course with a top five pick in the draft.

So... Who would you like to see as the new Vikings coach.

My dream coach would be Cowher but it doesn't sound like he is interested in coaching again. I think we need a really intense coach like him. Someone with cojones.

I'd also be down with Parcells even though I think he's an arrogant jerk.

Not a big fan of Billick but he might be our best available option.

What does everyone think? Your choice would be?

I personally dont care who they replace him with...BUT frankly if he was the slightest bit entertaining to listen to at the press conferences he might be seen as more exciting. I just hope our next coach is like one of these guys. grin

Go Eagles..."E -A -G -L - E -S ...unhuhghuhgh" thats my best Mike Tice impersonation...bring the guy back.

Unfortunately, I think we are stuck with Mr. Noodle thru the end of the year. Anything worse than 10-6, I think he's gone.

. In some ways, I hate to say it, but in some ways I wish we would go 8-8 or worse to get rid of this completely overwhelmed, completely underqualified goof.

Schottenheimer, Billick or maybe dangle a fat check in front of Mr Teary Eyes- Dick Vermeil.

there's got to be some awesome coordinators out there, maybe someone who doesn't call his own plays. whistle

Dennis Green, hate on him all you want, but players fought for him and he could fire em up. (remember also no matter how bad everyone hated him we were a playoff team during the tenure)

Bill Cowher-only wants to coach on East Coast ($$$ zygi's got it and it talks)

Jason Garret-not coming here, he makes as much as an OC as most head coaches

Gregg Williams-may be a little ticked off since he was supposed to be HC

Steve Spagnuolo-Giants D Coordinator is next big coaching name

I don't think the play calling would change/improve much unless Frazier came with a new highly touted offensive coordinator.

I'm not ready for Marty-ball. Why would we want him? He can't win the big one either.

I agree to an extent. The viking need to get to a big game first, then worry about if Marty can win a big one or not

Marty can't win the big ones the reason you don't want him here? You gotta be kidding me. Ever heard of someone in the HOF named Bud Grant?? He couldn't either, but I probably don't have to remind you of that- we all know that. Heres some Marty turnaround numbers:

-------------------------------------------------------------

In his 4½ years in Cleveland, the Browns went 44-27 (.620).

The 4½ years before he became head coach, the Browns were 30-35 (.462).

The five years after he left, the Browns were 34-45-1 (.431).

In his 10 years with Kansas City, the Chiefs went 101-58 (.692).

The five years before he became head coach, the Chiefs were 32-46-1 (.410).

The five years after he left, the Chiefs were 43-38 (.531).

Oh yeah, 14-2 his last season in San Diego. Then he was fired. Why? He couldn't win in the play-offs. Guess who they played that beat them- the New England Patriots. He got the shaft in San Diego, and is an excellent coach and by far the best option out there.

anyone is a better option at this point. We need someone that can be a leader and put our best players in positions to excel!

Will he make it to the end of the season?? That's another good question. If Kiffin goes, Linehan has already been fired- Zygi might get an itch, and I don't think any of us would complain.

Nope, I wasn't kidding.

Marty is an awesome regular season coach, no doubt.

Get him here first. We'll worry about the big games later. Sounds good to me, till we actually get to the point where he's choking away the big games.

I guess I could go either way with this one. He would definitely help us get to the playoffs, but I'd have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach before every big game with Marty steering the ship.

How about Pete Carroll? He was an NFL head coach for one season so he would know what he is getting into going from college to the pros. He also runs a big time program and has to deal with the press on a daily basis.

No way Carroll is leaving USC and don't blame him...

Cowher is the one, and we might get him, I thought I remembered him saying he just wanted a break and would consider coaching again

I will put another call out for Green:

He does have passion for the game grin!

What else does Pete Carroll need to accomplish at USC? He has National Titles, a lot of money, etc. and he has no where else to go but down from where he is now. He could probably make the same amount of money in the pros and have something to accomplish (turn around a program that he used to coach when he was young). It would make sense to at least talk to him. You never know, just like landing Tubby Smith for the Gophers.

I will pass on Mr. Bacon Strip. We need a guy more like Bud grant than Denny Green.

Cowher would be a great choice. He demands respect but still seems well liked and is a players coach. And our current Vikes are a team that resemble some of his old teams - strong running game, emphasis on defense...

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.
