Doesn't DeFilippo run a different type of offense than LaFleur?

Different for sure but I think he does a lot of zone blocking right?

IDK if hiring someone from the same system is really going to be a priority tbh. 

 

I think people are focusing on that way too much. Vrabel's just going to want whoever he thinks is the best coach.

I would say the best would be the following:

 

1. Cliff Kingsbury - Innovative Offensive mind, but could very well get hired by the Jets or Cardinals as HC

2. John Defillipio - Got the raw end of what was going on in Minnesota. Besides, next year we are going to be pounding the rock anyway. 

3. Freddie Kitchens - Did an amazing job with the Cleveland Offense. This would be only if Cleveland doesn't hire him as HC/the new HC doesn't retain him.

4. Adam Gase - If he doesn't get a HC Job

5. Kevin Stefanski - If he doesn't stay with Minny.

Kevin Stefanski is a good option, but isn't a Shanahan guy so there would be verbiage differences for sure. 

 

Same on all those guys. 

 

I bet the Cardinals hire Kingsbury.

I don't know.  I still think the best fit for Mariota is a quick short passing type of offense.

 

I'd love to see him in a Reid/Peterson type of offense.  Maybe McCarthy can come over.

Yeah I'm kind of torn on this suddenly.

I think the Jets may beat them to it. Supposedly quite a few players are pushing for him including Jamal Adams.

The reality is that the blocking scheme has folks that were brought in under a power scheme so power vs. zone shouldn't be the determining factor.  I'd like to see them hire someone with play calling experience ideally but get the right guy who has a plan for what he wants to do to maximize the abilities of Mariota.

Vikings already blocked Stefanski last year too so I'm betting he stays there.  

 

Ryan Day would be the best hire but he turned us down last year and doesn't have any more reason to leave this year than he did last imo.

Hell he has it made now that he is the HC of Ohio State. Can't see him leaving there anytime soon now.

@tgo

 

Who are the best available running game coordinators?

Lol

 

Mike McDaniel is genius with the run game. 

 

Rick Dennison is very good with the run game and OL and is a Shanahan guy through and through. He'd also definitely end up bringing in Tyrod Taylor I bet. 

 

Bill Callahan would be very good, but this would require a switch to power I bet. 

 

Also Aaron Kromer is a great run game guy.
