I'm not sure. I will check. Thank you!

 

Any good DCs out there for the Vikes?

Vikings wire have a good list of options, there are some good options available who were position group coaches in Rams, Cowboys, DC from Wisconsin, Chargers.. Brian Flores would be nice if he wants DC job and would like to leave Steelers. Seahawks associate HC Sean Desai seems to be a choice too, lot of them seem to have worked with Fangio scheme. Some lateral moves for current DCs are proposed but these candidates are looking for HC promotion.

I'd like anyone who can have at least a stable defense, having the ability to set up a very good run or pass defense if not both, if not elite.. At least having an identity in one way or other to start with would be good to compete in games. 

 

If they can coach up the CBs and find a good one in this draft or FA to help this season, that'd improve the defense. If most of Cine, Booth, Evans, Dantzler, Boyd could stay healthy and the new coach could make them and secondary play well, that's the kind of coach I'd want.

That must be the same article I read on the Athletic. There was a lot mentioned of Vic Fangio defense. Why are they so enamored with that defense? I read on the Athletic that Wade Phillips is a possibility. He has been a successful DC wherever he goes but he is the father of our OC. I don't think I want that nepotism that we had during the Zimmer years.

Lot of young guys are out there looking to move up the rank, who has worked with Vic Fangio or similar defense set up by others. As KOC preferred 3-4 defense, media focuses on similar candidates, i guess. 

 

I think the key is to find suitable players for the defense, they did it with Zadarius Smith for the front seven, whoever they hire hopefully gets the personnel right for the coverage and shore up run defense up front.

What did you think it would mean?

Didn’t Reich fire Brady this season?

Yes.  That’s why I think it would mean that reich never wanted to fire him and it came from above.  Just speculating of course

The Chargers have hired Kellen Moore. I knew he would not be unemployed for long. @richard pallo He is well thought of.

Good for him.  But it appears the Cowboys were not happy with his play calling.  He had a loaded offensive roster and they were pretty ordinary and predictable.  Maybe a change of scenery will do him good.  Just not when we are playing him.

The Vikings should interview Brian Flores for DCoordinator!!

 

He did a great job in Miami - until the owner decided he "had to have" an offensive-minded coach.

We interviewed him a while back... And we hired him today. The fan base seems happy with it. I was not sure how they would respond to him. We surely did not want Mike Pettine because he was already on staff and the defense was not successful this year.

I didn't realize that Brian Flores had interviewed in Minnesota. 

 

So - I was stunned when I mention it to you - and - he's hired.

 

HAHAHAHAHA!!

    • It ws 1.7% drop rate, which is still amazing. We took Josh Downs last year who only had a 2% drop rate for his draft.
    • Correction...............had Gilmore wanted to stay. 
    • Here is mine, but I will only give you my 1st round draft pick. I have to study the draft more to give you 7 picks. Some of you guys are out of my league and I even follow College Football quite a bit.    1. Franchise Tag Pittman - he will be happy making that kind of money over 1 year.   2. Re-sign Moore to a good 3 yr deal.   3. Re-sign Stewart to a good 3 yr deal. He can finish his career here.   4. Re-sign Sanchez to a good 3 yr deal   5. Re-sign Blackmon to a good 3 yr deal.   6. Re-sign Ronnie Harrison to a good 2 yr deal.   7. - I have decided to let Minshew walk, I hate it, but it is time to put all our marbles in AR's bag. Either AR is the real deal, or he isn't. He has had 1 year to play a little and then sit a lot at the same time. He has had 1 year to learn from Minshew and get a feel for Shane. He is now 100% heathy, I want it to be his team, no QB controversy + Minshew is going to want around 10 Mill a year after last season. Too much money. He was only making 3.5 Mill last season.   8. Moss walks as well, Taylor is the man, we just need someone average that can spell him from time to time and carry it maybe 8-10 times a game. In Shane's system, he can make an average RB look good at times.    9. Pinter walks - he is going to want more money.   10. Tyquan Lewis walks, that extra 2 Mill could help into signing a big Free Agent. Tough loss here but I want Mike Evans. I am just saving a little money here and there where I can.   11. Let McKenzie walk.   12. Release Ogletree.   13. Sign Mike Evans to a big 3 yr deal! He is 30 years and that is my cut off point to signing anyone to a big deal but he is a healthy 30. Played in every game last season and dominated. He has at least 2 great years left in him. When we tried this with Andre Johnson, Johnson was 34 and washed. This would be much different, + Evans is younger in that type of scenario.    14. I like your Tyrod Taylor idea, every team needs a back-up QB that is at least average as a whole. He would be cheap. He could win a game or 2 if AR missed 2 games. Maybe sign him to 1 yr, for 5 Mill. That is about what he was making in NY.    15. Draft Brock Bowers at #15! The TE that AR needs.   16. Draft the best CB on the board that is left with our 2nd round pick and gamble with it and hope he pans out. I can't say who that player will be because we won't know until draft night. 
    • I agree 100% and that is why I do not see us using number 15 on any of those top corners - and I agree on Tampa as an option later in the draft as well as Cam Hart (Notre Dame) and Khryee Jackson (Oregon)
    • Had we kept Gilmore, we would have won the division, but hindsight is hindsight unfortunately. He may of even made a 2 game difference, not a 1 game difference. We could have been 11-6 because our secondary would have been much stronger and it was our weak point all season.
