I think, think being the key word here, that Kirk was wanting to just throw it away and didn’t see the safety lurking back there?

 

Jefferson was held and tackled. It should have been a penalty but there have been some bad calls against the Bears.

If the Vikings make the playoffs, do you think Zimmer is gone? I do think Nagy is history.

 

I think making the playoffs is not enough. This is his eighth season. 

 

Matt Nagy has beaten Zimmer more than he has lost to him.

As long as John doesn't go for 2 he is great (joking) 

 

That's ok. I am the only one on earth who agreed with him. Mike Shanahan did that a few times. Both he and Harbaugh are Super Bowl winning head coaches.

Oh I love it when Frank goes for it on 4th a lot, going for 2 to end a game though I don't agree with that. That is just saying you have no faith in your D at all. I guess I get yesterday because if this guy Green Bay Packers Reaction GIF by Martellus Bennett's Text Back Pack gets the coin toss it is bad.

No, he was two yards to go to score and win the game. If they tie it, no way would they win. If they were playing against a mediocre QB, I would get it.. They were playing against Rodgers.

@EastStreet

Anyone else

 

Who are some of the  coaches that may replace Matt Nagy and Mike Zimmer? Any bright minds? (No, Joe Brady is not among them.)

Eric Bieniemy needs to get a chance at some point. Josh McD's name will certainly come up. Dennis Allen, Dan Quinn, and Wink Martindale are other names that should get kicked around.

How did you feel after our win on Saturday? I have to admit that is the best I have felt since we beat them in 2009. Man I was happy all night at work. I had to work that night haha It was a smooth fun night lmao . That was a huge statement win.

Yes.  JT's touchdown at the end had me smiling for days!.

 

And yes beating the Pats always feels good.   Still not the rivalry we once had with them but felt great!

Thank you. I like Dan Quinn. Hard pass on Josh McD. No one from Bill Belichick's staff. 

 

I believe that after 10 years of defensive head coaches, I may prefer someone on offense. How about the Bills OC? I want someone stable-- no off-the-field issues. Someone quiet (Dungy-like but an OC). 

 

Thanks again.

If you want, I'd go with Bieniemy over Daboll (Bill's OC). I'm sure Leftwich will get some interest too. All 3 Os are pass heavy though.

    • Blake Freeland!!          Because Smith moved to RG with Freeland's major improvement. 
    • Think he is saying odds are better then zero he starts which leaves us in a range from .1 to 99.9...lol
    • I read that .... then reread it.......   Are you saying that he is a guaranteed starter?   Or there is no chance that he is the starter?   Its early, I havent finished my coffee.....  It might be my denseness       Goncalves would seem to have a real chance at RG.... IMHO  
    • A couple things that took place last year and throughout the off-season that I think will pay dividends this year on the defensive side of the ball.   Brents and Jones showed, in spurts, that they have the chops to play CB in this league and with a full season under their belt plus this off-season I think they will be a very solid tandem on the outside. Add in Flowers and his growth potential and a versatile rookie in Simpson I think the CB room is just fine and ready for the next step. Will they end up with more INT's and PBU's - I certainly think so.   Another coverage area that I think has improved is a full season and off-season of learning the LB spot for Ronnie Harrison and then the drafting of Jaylon Carlies and the singing of the UDFA Craig Young. All are former Safety's that have or had made the transition to LB and bring coverage skills with them and LONG arms - all three have 33" arms or longer which means wingspan and shutting down passing lanes. If the coaching staff isn't married to playing Zaire (Contract) and Speed (Veteran) on passing downs, then 2-3 of those fella's could play in sub packages and clog up passing lanes. They did cut bait with Shaq last year so I would hope that they play the kids that can actually cover versus the highest paid fella.   The addition of Latu, though he is just one man should also help speed up the QB's eyes and lead to more errant throws that could be picked off!??!   All three of those things tied together create a perfect storm of improvement in the weakest areas of our D last year.   As for Safety - I have mixed feelings about the FS spot and there are several 'what if' scenarios:   Cross could have something click and then the mental game meets up with his physical ability - which I feel like he played decent down the stretch last year (last 2-3 games)?   Thomas could return to his rookie form.   Daniel Scott could be a pretty good option but is also technically a rookie after sitting out all last year - though mental reps and walk throughs do help from time to time.   A really off the wall thought - perhaps they move Harrison back to SS and slide Blackmon to FS if the kids (Carlies & Young) prove capable as nickel and dime coverage backers?   Denbow is not the answer....... Dabo will be on year three of using the International Roster Exception..... Maybe they try Ameer Speed at FS with his size and speed combination? Maybe his college teammate Kendall Brooks earns a spot? Maybe Abraham or Simpson take FS and run with it? Both played that spot in college. Maybe Abraham proves he can play the NB and they slide Moore back to FS like he played in college?   Lots and lots of ifs and buts.........
    • Good question    Wiki simply says he's nicknamed AD, I wonder if it had to do with Hebrew pronunciation of the word Adonai, which means Lord.. maybe, it's just that his family or friends started calling him AD
