    Great News! not that Tice is the glue that holds that team together, but still.


    from Pro Football Talk Dot Com scroll down a bit.

    MEATHEAD NEARLY RESIGNED



    Sean Jensen of The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Vikings coach Mike Tice contemplated quitting in the wake of the team's bumbling 30-10 loss to the Falcons, in which the Vikings were not competitive even after knocking Atlanta quarterback Mike Vick out of the game with a sprained knee.

    Three unnamed players told Jensen that Tice told them he was thinking about packing it in, causing one starter to conclude, "I lost all respect for him."

    By Monday, however, Tice was recommitted. He met with the team and told them of a lesson he'd learned from his late father, who urged him never to quit.

    But the damage might already be done. There's no reason for us to believe that Tice can will this team to de-turdify, and the current talk that offensive coordinator Steve Loney will move back from the booth to the sidelines and that running backs coach Dean Dalton will move up to the booth reeks of misguided desperation and a complete lack of confidence.

    It's time, in our view, for owner Zygi Wilf to step in and end this madness. Bring back Bud Grant or Jerry Burns or Les Steckel. Because it appears that the presence of Randy Moss (scroll down for more) helped to conceal flaws not only in the offense, but also in the coaching staff.

    LoL well it is the truth. This farce was leaked to the media by an unhappy cornerback who was demoted because of the Smoot pick-up. That's what Birk said in the tribune and I don't see him as one to lie on his team.
