Newly promoted offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski will hope to repeat the performance of Jim Caldwell, interim offensive coordinator for the 2012 Ravens.
Even with a brand-new quarterback in a new system, the Vikings offense performed at a high level during the first eight weeks of the season, ranking in the top 10 in total offense, passing, completion percentage and passer rating while setting a handful of team and leaguewide records.
We'll see if it works next week, but for now people in Vikingsland have a reason to at least be a tad bit excited-which is something I never would've expected after last night killed the last bit of hope that the Vikings could/would/should make a run this season.
When John DeFilippo was hired by the Minnesota Vikings, he explained on a conference call how the Philadelphia Eagles had gotten the most out of journeyman quarterback Nick Foles during the team's Super Bowl run.
In losing for the third time in four games, the Vikings (6-6-1) had just 276 yards of offense against the Seahawks (8-5), including just 61 in the first half.
On Tuesday, Zimmer's daughter, Corri Zimmer White, took to Instagram to defend her father's work ethic and commitment to doing the job. Spend a minute of your time with me and we'll get to the bottom of this! "I just felt it was in the best interest of the team to make this move now". "But at the same time, all you can do now is go forward". This was thought by many in the National Football League world as a great get. "I think he's a very good coach, and I think he'll be a coordinator again".
The heat is now on head coach Mike Zimmer, who has been feeling the effects of a season that's slipping away.
The Minnesota Vikings have lost three of their last four games and look like they are going to fall short of expectations this season, but Mike Zimmer's daughter is exhausted of people blaming the head coach. He had one season on his resume as an offensive coordinator, with the Cleveland Browns in 2015, and his status as a head coaching candidate may have invited getting cute with play-calling this season.
