What a kick in the junk. He lost Robert Smith, John Randle, Todd Steissie, and Korey Stringer and they expected him to win? I don't even think it was about the record. I think it was about Randy Moss. Randy's remarks and behavior is what got him fired. No doubt. A Superstar acting like an ass will get the community to turn on their team. You can't have that. So they are going to get someone in there who will attempt to control Randy. That is my take on it anyway.

The Vikings are pretty much fucked for the next few years. Their defense is in shambles, Carter is going to be gone, they have a young RB who hasn't done much yet, and then they have Randy Moss. Who put up good numbers this year but he wasn't of any real impact except for one game. Someone you pay $100 mill to should be an impact in every single game. Firing Dennis Green was not the answer to this problem. A man who has had 1 losing season in ten years should not be fired. He should have been given another chance. He always seems to pull something out of his ass and make the Vikings into a contender. This year was the exception to that rule. He will go onto another team and make the Vikings look like the idiots they are for firing him.

My take exactly. Dennis Green was the perfect fall guy for a team in shambles. I'm not impressed with the decision. Maybe they can lure Spurrier up into the frozen plains of St. Paul. THAT'D be a coup.

Minneapolis, actually.

And he really, really did deserve to be fired.

But I already wint into this in another thread.

But, as a resident of Minnesota, it makes me happy, because listening to that guy talk makes you wanna eat glass.

Their window of opportunity slammed shut in the NFC Championship game against the Giants last year. They should trade Moss and rebuild.

Should have kept Green to do it tho. I've got a friend and a wife who are Vikings fans and they aren't looking forward to a bad few years.

Of course, they could be Seahawks fans like me and suffer thru mediocrity EVERY year. Except for the years they outright SUCK.

Well, it is true that he had a good winning percentage in the regular season. And he did make it to the playoffs 8 out of the 10 years of his tenure. But... his playoff record is horrible. The Vikes rarely made it out of the first round, and in the NFL, Championships are all that matter. There's also the fact that he lost control of Chris Carter and Randy Moss. Carter went from voice of reason and team leader to ranting on the sidelines, the field, and the locker room. As much as I love the Vikings, it has been hard to be a fan of the team this year with stuff like this going on. A head coach needs to be the one running the team, not the wide recievers. And Green's draft choices haven't been the best in the world. I think that is responsible for the defensive problems of the past few years. I don't think that it's going that long of a turn around time for them though. They need a good RB, a healthy Culpepper, and a disciplined Moss.

Green would make a good Stanford coach.

Well.....that's what the SF sportscaster said.

And Drew, ye shall suffer the torment of 1000 Behrings. And then, ye shall have to stare at the molded haircap of the Drunkard Erickson, and ye resolve shall crumble. And then, ye shall be teased with a division championship brough down by the all-powerful and all-knowing Holmgren. And the torments continue, and ye shall see that the all-powerful and all-knowing Holmgren isn't. Marvel as he trades people he hates for draft picks! Wonder as he anoints Sir Hassel of Beck to lead you to the promised land! Laugh when he fails...

Ah, the good ole NFL coaching carousel starts again.

Green is a good coach, but I think his time was up in Minnesota. He'll pop up again and soon. As for the new Minn coach, I got one in Seattle they are more than welcome to have.

This division is going to be quite a bit tougher with this QB reshuffle.
