View Full Version : Tice Needs more help

According to KFFL the Vikings have brought in Jerry Rhome and Fazio to help Tice come up with better plays since he obviously sucks.
Who honestly expects him to last the season? If they don't turn things around they could end up 5-11 and with the talent on that team that is unexusable especially in that division.

On that same note I found this funny.
MINNEAPOLIS--The Vikings are off to a 1-3 start and look lost on both sides of the ball. If things don’t improve soon, the head coach must be held responsible for their failure to meet expectations. At least that’s what they’re saying at Firemiketice.net, a new website calling for the firing of Mike Tice, created by Mike Tice himself.
“Sometimes people stay on their jobs for too long, and I have done that myself,” reads a message on the front page of the website. “Anybody who cares about Vikings football knows that I am bad for this team and should have been fired long ago. I never should have been hired in the first place. Please, Mr. Wilf, if you want to preserve your fan base and get this franchise back on track, fire me, Mike Tice. If you don’t do it now, things are just going to get much, much worse. Trust me.”
Tice created the site after the Vikings lost to the Bengals in week two, 37-8. Firemiketice.net is meant to be a one-stop place for Minnesota fans who want to read about Tice’s failings, purchase anti-Mike Tice merchandise, or simply vent to other Tice-haters on the message board. There is also an online petition that will be sent to owner Zygmunt Wilf when it reaches ten thousand signatures.

Well the owner just said that Tice will remain the coach for the rest of the year according to KFFL.
The groan you just heard was Vikings Fans and Culpepper owners in FF.
Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said Tuesday night, Oct. 4, that head coach Mike Tice will remain the team's coach for the rest of the season. "He's with me this whole season," Wilf said of Tice. "We're concentrating on giving him the manpower and coaching advice to make the team better." Wilf's vote of confidence and offer of cash came a day after Tice called a meeting with his players, characterized as a candid "state of the Vikings." Though Tice said his message was an attempt to get the team to pull together and not quit, three players said the coach had questioned the effectiveness of his own leadership and even mentioned considering resigning. Some players said after the meeting they felt Tice had quit on them. Pro Bowl C Matt Birk, who is out for the season after hip surgery, did not agree with the players who questioned Tice's resolve.

No one suffers like the Viking fan...I know after suffering through four super bowl losses (not to mention an NFC Championship game loss to Atlanta, at home).
I'll be interested to see whether Ziggy sticks with Mike if he continues to pee down his own leg for a few more games.
Thanks for the Vikes news Rascal.
