Ya that may have been a reach.  Actually I should kick my own ass for thinking of Jim.  I think John was the nicer brother.

Maybe take up knitting or sewing. Something less stressful you're gonna tip one of these days and this team isn't worth that. Maybe Timberwolves basketball. They are only going to win 10 games a year so you get to be happy 10 times and blah who the F cares the other what, 72 times a year?

Gary Kubiak's son Klint is now the OC. That is a large part of the problem IMO, 6 different OCs in his 7 years at the helm. :pouty: :tut: Turner was 1st, then Shurmur, De Filippo, Stefanski, & now the 2 Kubiaks.  :crazy: https://zonecoverage.com/2021/minnesota-vikings-news/comparing-mike-zimmers-continuity-struggles-with-other-long-tenured-head-coaches/#:~:text

Yup we don't have a clue how to do anything out of the ordinary and that is even a challenge to the coaches here.  We get outcoached in every game, and that includes the games we get lucky and win.  AND Cousins all excited and wacks Zim in the chest cuz we barely beat the worst team in the league.  Come on Quirk get a grasp.

Shouldn't of even been that close, the missed kick & when they took the ball away from Mattison changed that game big time. Luckily the last FG attempt was good & hopefully :scratch: Mattison learned to not try to get that extra yard in that situation. :pouty: The ball & the clock is all the matters then.

Who's calling the plays?   :confused:

K. Kubiak might be calling the plays, but Zim's fingerprints are all over the game plan.  Remember when Zim fired De Filippo for not toeing the "run first, run often" line?  :doah:

Klint is looking to have a long coaching career in the NFL, and you don't want your first mark on your resume to be "Doesn't do what the Head Coach says."

He'll get his chance some where some day, and until then Vikings fans will continue to get to watch "2 Runs Up the Gut and a Dump-off pass over the middle short of the sticks."

I'd be willin to bet :scratch: it was much the same issue when Turner, & Shurmur left as well. :crazy: :pouty: :tut:

And perhaps Cousins has been too much of a nice guy to call out his coach for overly-conservative play.

Although, with Kapt. Kirk playing the best ball of his career, with capable wide receivers, you are starting to see peeps of feedback.  I think I heard that Kirk was asked about why they ran in a particular situation or why they didn't go for a score at the end of the half, and his response was something to the effect that it was all coaching decisions - which is Quarterback Code for "they don't trust me to make plays in this situation."

I've always like Zim's hard-nosed, no nonsense approach to coaching, and I think is players respect him for this.  But maybe it is a time for a change.

I think the whole team is tired of his archaic attitude.  He does seem to have lightened up some this year too.  Like when he actually stood up for the kicker when he missed that one a few games ago.   :happy1:

I have a hard time believing a coordinator has a better idea of a play to call than a veteran quarterback down on the field. I understand helping rookie and first year guys but somebody like Cousins, Brady, Carr & other veterans should be able to set-up plays. I think much like baseball to many guys think they know what they are doing when actually they don't.

Just my opinion.

 :scratch: But that was Brad Childress & nobody cared what he said. ;) :rolleyes: :laugh: Especially Farve since he knew his days in the NFL were coming to an end! Although I think he did drive McCarthy :crazy: before he left GB doing exactly the same thing.

I think he is trying hard to say the right things in public, but I think it is very hard for that leopard to change his spots.
