All HC talking here. Who are they talking to? Who do you want? Who do you not want?I read they are talking to Jack Del Rio this morning.
The Vikings reached out to O'Brien weeks ago, as reported at the time, have tried to gauge the interest of UCLA coach Jim Mora (not happening) and are very interested in Denver's young offensive coordinator Adam Gase, sources said. The idea of working another year on a great staff and working with Peyton Manning is very appealing to Gase, with 2015 more of the expected time frame for him to pursue head coaching jobs, sources said. Plus, it would take a pretty strong commitment from a team to lure him from what is an outstanding situation in Denver. In the past the Vikings have been very frugal with coaching budgets.
Another common theme between all those defensive coordinators is a 3-4 scheme. I am not totally opposed to the 3-4. Anything is better than watching good QB's dissect a cover-2 every game, every season. I would be real excited to see what Horton or Bowles could do with Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith.Also, I think Everson Griffen would be excited to resign with the Vikings and switch to a rushing OLB. I think he'd be a stud at that position. Not sure if Robison would stay at DE or move to OLB. I think Sharrif Floyd could play at the other end position. The Vikings would need to get a big guy for the middle like Haloti Ngata or Vince Wilfork. It seems like Greenway would play better as a 3-4 ILB anyway. He sucks in coverage.I was leaning towards wanting an offensive minded head coach, but now I kinda want a defensive guy again that can be a good coach and help revamp the defense. Then get a good young offensive coordinator that can work real close with a rookie QB and new QB coach so we aren't going through all this again in 3-4 years.
Appears Bill Parcels joiced his support for Mike Zimmer while he and Zygi talked. They are apparently good buds.
Well...if you believe the reports on NFL network......the vikings have2 of the 3 finalists for the HC job...Zimmer and Bowles.
I keep hearing that Bowles "blew them away" in the interview. I haven't heard anyone else say he is destined to be a HC. I don't hear anything about him. I hear a lot of Zimmer that he is ideal. I just want to know. It will end up being that Gase guy from Denver and just make me throw up my hands.
