I really just dont want him in our division, but with 2/3 of the interviews in the division... There was actually a pretty large list of coaching candidates and a lot fewer vacancies than expected, so maybe we retain him for another year.

Maybe Shurmur is not looking to leave...He has it pretty good right now.
Maybe he will use these interviews to try and get a raise...just some food for thought.

I'd be more interested in Caldwell's OC, Jim Bob Cooter.
Plus, Jim Bob Cooper is a way cooler name.

If they do lose Shurmer, I know I said I think Hue is great, but I'd almost prefer they find someone fresh. Someone from the college game that has NFL experience.

Lane Kiffin would be nice, but that's not happening.

So would I, if only for all the fun we'd have with his name.

I'm guessing that was an auto-correct, but it's COOTER.

As in the stupid grease monkey from Dukes of Hazzard.

OK, I guess it's also a slang term for the female sex organ, but we won't go there. Wait. I just did.

Lol, yep auto correct. I didn't even notice it. Either way, it would be fun to say!

No thank you. The guy has a record of mediocrity. No long time NFL guys with a history of bad results please.

I'd actually take another crack at Bill Musgrave if he is available. OAK sure missed him this year.

My hope is they offer Shurmer a fat contract and get him to stay. This coaching staff has worked really well this year, be a shame to break it up.

Another name that might be on the table is Jay Gruden. He might get canned in WSH after several years of medioce results. If that happens, he'd be a compelling addition as an OC.

A darn shame that Arians is retiring from Football. I had this pipedream that Arians would quit AZ and come to MIN and be Zimmer's OC. Half of it came true...

Pat Shurmur - C - Vikings
ABC 15 in Arizona reports Vikings OC Pat Shurmur has emerged as the favorite for the Cardinals' head-coaching vacancy.

Shurmur interviewed for Arizona's vacancy last week, and rumors have had him potentially bringing impending free agent Case Keenum along with him should Shurmur land a head-coaching gig. He was being considered by the Bears, but Chicago opted for ex-Chiefs OC Matt Nagy. Shurmur has also drawn interest from the Lions and Giants, who have yet to fill their head-coaching voids.

Post subject:  Re: Shurmer ready for head coach interviews

I really hope he doesnt go. The continuous rumor is that if he goes he'll take Keenum with him. It's a very tough call because I would normally say "Well, just resign Keenum so Shurmur cant get him in FA. BUT, is Keenum a product of Shurmur??? That is the big question. I dont [i]think[/] he is. But if thats the case and we resign him without Shurmur, is Case going to go back to his old self. That is the risky part. However, based on how the rest of his playoff run goes, I'm sure his confidence will be sky high going into next year. Who knows

One scenario I haven’t seen discussed is that Shurmur could leave and take Bradford with him, not Case. Remember, Shurmur is the reason we went after Bradford in the first place, having worked with him at the Rams and Eagles.

Very good point. Didnt think about that one

Bradford on the Cardinals is a great scenario for him as long as our management thinks Bradford on the Vikings is done. I have no idea what way they will go but I will understand whatever route they choose (as long as it's 1 of our 3 guys).

Bradford was a stopgap from the beginning, I think. I don't think they'll try to retain him after the injury problems he's had.

Post subject:  Re: Shurmer ready for head coach interviews

I still believe that we can sign both Case and Teddy. A lot of people are saying we cant. My whole reasoning behind it....

Teddy cant go out there and say "Hey, I want $20 mill a year". How can he?? Nobody, including the Vikings know what they have in him until you see him in game action. So I feel like we can retain him for cheap. As for Case, his price tag will be high, especially if he wins a SB but I dont see it being way out of the park. I think it's possible we keep both Case and Teddy

I don't know ... I'm thinking both will want to start somewhere.

He's not going to up his value any more by sitting on the bench for 3 years though. There are a few different teams where either of them would be able to start, I think. Who knows though, perhaps they would both be ok with that situation.

If I were Case (and I don't lay an egg in the playoffs) I'd wait to see how the team handles Teddy before I signed. The team has shown how it feels about Bridgewater and we already know the fans will be clamoring to bring him in any time Case made a misstep if he were the starter. It just doesn't seem like a great situation when you could be the unquestioned starter somewhere.

Shurmer expected to take the Giants job, if offered. Per La Confora.
