Nobody talking about the Vikings D this year?
They looked god awful all season. DB play was especially awful.

With that being said, I'm all for giving him a chance, but I am surprised that the Vikings defensive play this year hasn't really been discussed

re: Nobody talking about the Vikings D this year?
Jones Stats past 3 years as DB specialist and coach


Cincinnati 2018 dead last pass defense
(The year before he arrived Cincinnati pass defense was 8th in 2017, he proceeds to bring Cincinnati from 8th pass defense to last in nfl)
Cincinnati 2019 20th pass defense
Minnesota 2020 24th pass defense
(The year before he arrived at Minnesota in 2020 , Minnesota pass defense was 14th in 2019. He drops Minnesota from 14th best pass defense to 24th)

re: Nobody talking about the Vikings D this year?
It’s being discussed. Just like all the problems with the Pelini hire were discussed. Both hires were awful for a program of LSU’s stature.

It’s just the problems are being buried by the rush to justify the awful hire so people can have optimism during the off-season. Which I get. It’s not fun otherwise. My optimism is more like hoping I get a five when I hit on sixteen though. Which is essentially this hire.

They had so many injuries! Otherwise, it would be a different story.

People like to throw out stats for passing yards when many variables go into that like uh idk pass rush. The guy was praised as a teacher and great coach but everyone looks at stats. Vikings had a horrible defensive line this year

Well our DB play was awful too yet most people aren't blaming Corey Raymond.

It wasn’t just this. Danielle Hunter missed the season and there was no pass rush.

It was two rookie corners and A couple of undrafted free agents. It was also tough to get the young players up to speed with no off season programs or pre season games.
The young players, Cam Dantzler (3rd round pick) and Jeff Gladney (1st round pick) looked lost the first 5 games. The second half of the season they improved greatly and played well.
How much of this attributable to Jones I have no idea. I followed the Viking all season and barely heard his name mentioned good or bad.

Meanwhile Alabama has the best coach in history and are on a run never before seen in history. If you expect anyone to do what Saban has, then you’re setting yourself up to always be disappointed. If we, instead, focus on what a reasonable expectation here is (winning a conference title every 4-5 years or so and making a national title run in those years) then maybe people wouldn’t be so consumed with comparing everything to Nick Saban. Look where that’s taken Auburn and everyone else who’s tried.

because he’s had enough great years here for most to look at ‘20 as most likely being a blip.
