No to Bevell, our offense was terrible with him as OC.

I just hope they hire the right guy. EVERY day that goes by I cringe hoping that nobody else got hired by another team.THE VIKINGS have to make the biggest hire and years,but cant wait too long either.IT is kind of exciting waiting to see who they hire,it is like having a kid waiting too see what it is.NOW it boils down to if they want to pass the cigar out or not.HOPEFULLY they do it right this time.

Have no confidence in Wilf, He might be a real estate genius but he's bankrupt when it comes to football moxie. All the proof you need is he gave the GM job to the poser Spielman. As long as these two guys lead the Vikes all you're gonna get are Participant Ribbons. No winning coach is going to take the job when he'll have to report to Spielman.

Well, in all fairness, if he'd stop bickering with the court orders and just disclose his actual wealth to the public, it would likely turn out he indeed, 'can' afford another blunder.

It doesn't matter who they hire as coach if they don't fix the defense. Look at the best teams in the NFC. They all have strong defenses. If we can put together a defense like those, the quarterback problem won't be a problem. Cassel can be a game manager, not a savior.

there's no real risk for ziggy at all, he will make out handsomely when he sells the team for a nice profit down the road

Zygi's not hiring the coach Spielman is. It's important to Spielman because there's a 2 year window in the old stadium and he has to win now to sell club seats and energize the fan base. Both Spielman and the new coach will be gone soon if they don't win right away making the Vikes coaching job a stinker - no qb, no defense, Spielman as GM wont' share power, and pressure to win immediately,.

Adam Gase better not be on the radar. Peyton Manning is the OC of the Broncos. Hiring Gase would be a mistake. Look at OCs who have accomplished something.
