    I think kubiak is #1 because he's done such a good job turning this franchise around player wise.

    I find it funny Sean Payton is in third. Tons of Cowboy fans out there.

    Can we please agree to NOT call him "Kubes?"

    I get a very disturbing visual every time I see him called that.

    And how can Childress be ahead of Kubiak? Wow. Lotsa' Norlanders out there, eh?

    I think it will be Sean Payton, he learned from bill parcells and has Drew Brees, Duece MCallister, Joe Horn, Donte Stallworth, and a pretty solid offensive line. If they do the right thing and draft A.J Hawk their one of my sleeper teams this season.

    Though I do believe Gary Kubiak and the Houston Texans would win that question if they said "Which coach hired in 2006 has been the most successfull?". 3 Years from now.

    IMO a big reason that we don't get more votes is because we are still a joke of a franchise to other fans. Thanks to those two blowouts on ESPN. Good times. Good times.

    I voted for Childress. After all, if you think that the Texans are going to have a better record than the Vikes, you are kidding yourself.

    Three years from now, Kubiak may be fired.

    Vikes have always been an "either/or" team. Always. They are EITHER winning and get deep into the playoffs, OR they just flat out can't win to save their lives. Sort of like the Oilers were.

    I do not see them running away with the North, let alone getting deep into the playoffs. I like our chances a lot better just because I think we're getting the right mix together. Childress handled the Culpepper thing completely wrong, and it appears the Vikes have a very iron-fisted coach at the helm. Big payroll going to "star" players + iron-fisted coach = High potential for a meltdown. The owner is very quick to pull the trigger on firing, and he doesn't mind doing such a thing in a tasteless manner as he did to Tice.

    I like our chances, and I think Kubiak will outshine Childress.

    And you're out of your tree if you think Kubiak will get only 3 years compared to Dom's 4-year stint that should have been a 3-year stint. That's my opinion. You have it in for the guy, don't you? This is the second time in a span of about 5 minutes that I've seen you rag the guy.

    Coachiak is here for at least 4 years.

    I don't know if Coach K will get more wins than any other new coach this year, but I can tell you he will be coaching the most improved team of the season. Most times, the coach who produces a big turnaround from 1yr to the next wins Coach of the Year.

    I'm not seeing the season record predictions on the boards like I usually do this time of year. (maybe im not looking hard enough)

    However, Im thinking 9-7 from 2-14. If by some miracle the Texans make the playoffs, Kubiak will recieve Bum Phillips status for us old local boys; Not to mention league wide respect. Kubiak is lucky to get a team that had more talent than 2-14 plus prime picks in the draft...and McNair. He has set himself up to be a very rich man.
