Mark Craig, of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice wondered aloud about changing their offense around "or the exact personality of our offense." Tice said, "I don't know yet. I know that we want to continue to do the things that we have done."
Uhhh...Hey Mike. Based on week 1, I don't think it would be a good idea to continue what you did and expect different results. I think that's the definition of insanity. Oh wait....nevermind.
i think tice was talking about in seasons past, not specifically last week. give him a little bit of credit.
and yes, the previous owner of the vikings was a cheap, cheap skinflint. red mccombs has a history of owning sports franchises just long enough for the tax break he gets from buying them to wear out and then he boots. i looked, and couldn't find, but thought there was something that one of the real reasons the vikes traded moss was because red knew he was selling the team and moss had a large payment coming due which red would have had to pay since it would have occured before the sale. so instead, red got rid of him. (also fun little fact: the vikings have been notoriously under the salary cap the past few years, scraping up to get up to the league minimum... when they signed antoine winfield last year, he became the highest-paid player in the nfl counted against the cap. they gave almost all of his salary in the form of a roster bonus, rather than signing bonus, to accelerate the cap effect and bring the team as a whole up to the nfl minimum).
i like tice. it's just too bad he's really an offensive line coach in a position he can't handle.
