The Vikings have an OC and it’s the same guy who finished the season. All bleeding stops eventually and time heals all wounds, as we kick dirt on last season and move forward I have to say I thought keeping Stefanski for continuity and letting him have a full off-season for install was the right call. We’ll find out sooner rather than later whether it was. It’s the off-season much sooner than I expected, but we’ll continue with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Fire up the mock drafts and drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and crack open a Jai-Alai.
