    Two Old Bloggers - Vikings Decisions, Time for Change

    Two Old Bloggers - Vikings Decisions, Time for Change

    What a week! Darren and Dave look at some of the Vikings’ decisions and agree that it is time for a change. The Minnesota Vikings have reached a point of frustration. Years of being the worst of the best, or best of the worse have led to angst, hard feelings, and dysfunction. Both Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer were released. How they handled the end and this last season as a whole, says a lot. What direction will the Vikings go next? The GM and HC searches are on. Do they look for a talent guru, someone with business acumen, or a leading-edge expert with analytics? Let’s talk about it. 

    Then as a bonus, we’ll look at a prospective linebacker, because that will be one of many holes needed to fill in next season’s defense. Do you like this young man?

    Two Old Bloggers are comprised of Dave and Darren, who both started blogging on the Purple decades ago. They will talk over issues and events in the offseason, so get ready for the Climbing The Pocket and Daily Norseman 2OB commentary and interaction show!

    Here are the themes for the show:

    Theme #1 - Zimmer goes out the wrong way

    Theme#2 - Who will be the new GM?

    Theme#3 - Positional outlook: The Linebackers

    Join us for your Minnesota Vikings talk amongst Two Old Bloggers and join the conversation! Fan with us!!! Come join the @Climb_ThePocket’s & @DailyNorseman’s blogger show with Darren @KickassblogVike and Dave @Luft_Krigare.

    Vikings Daily SITREP - GM Search: The Big 8

    Vikings Daily SITREP - GM Search: The Big 8

    Tyler Forness joins Dave to talk about the Minnesota Vikings' search for a new General Manager. As we know, on Black Monday of this week, Zygi and Mark Wilf fired Rick Spielman as GM. Rick had been with the team since 2006 and GM since 2012. His job status and that of head coach Mike Zimmer were linked. Until 2018, the team was on the rise, but after that, it struggled with only one playoff appearance. Decisions on signing Kirk Cousins played into it, along with the perceived inability to get enough quality starters out of the draft. Throw in some failures at certain positions and some panic trades that didn’t pan out as envisioned, made for it being time for a new GM. The Wilf’s have assembled a committee to find the next one. It has been reported that out of all the names seen early in the week, the next move is to interview a group of 8 external candidates that have been vetted. We’ll call this stage of the GM search, the big 8. 

    The big 8 group includes Eliot Wolf - Patriots, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Glenn Cook both from the Browns, Brandon Brown and Catherine Raiche both from the Eagles, Monti Ossenfort - Titans, Ryan Poles - Chiefs, and John Spytek - Buccaneers. Tyler has an interesting theory on the pairs from the same team. Also, look at who has possible future coach connections. Who do you like?

    Fan with us!!! Guest Tyler Forness @TheRealForno and Dave Stefano @Luft_Krigare producing this @Climb_ThePocket Network’s & @DailyNorseman’s production.

    Vikings Daily SITREP - Memories of a Miracle

    Vikings Daily SITREP - Memories of a Miracle

    Matt Anderson joins Dave to talk about the memories of a miracle, the Minneapolis Miracle to be exact. Four years ago today, the Minnesota Vikings were playing the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional round of the playoffs. The Vikes opened up a 17-0 lead by the half and all was looking great, but… Drew Brees led a comeback in the second half and took the lead. Kai Forbath hits a 53 yard FG to put the Vikings back in the lead, but then Wil Lutz matched with a 43 yarder with 25 seconds left. The Vikings started the final drive and moved backward on the first play, but then 3 plays later only made it to their 39-yard line. The Vikes need at least 20 yards to get into very long field goal range. Only 10 seconds were left on the clock. The ball was snapped, Case Keenum dropped back, and then fired the ball downfield to Stephon Diggs. The defender missed the tackle beneath him as he skied for the ball. He stumbled but stayed inbounds and took it to the end zone for the win. US Bank Stadium erupted! Fans watching in bars, at other games, at home all erupted too. What a play! 

    Fan with us!!! Guest Matt Anderson @MattAnderson_8 Jayson Brown @brownjayson and Dave Stefano @Luft_Krigare producing this @Climb_ThePocket Network’s & @DailyNorseman’s production.
