Offensive Player of the Year?

Trading Dannielle Hunter to get assets to rebuild the defense, does that make sense? Darren and Dave debate that and more. First a defensive coordinator update, then admiration for Justin Jefferson’s fantastic 2022 season. It was so enjoyable! SKOL!

On today’s episode of Two Old Bloggers - The offensive player of the year is awarded to? We are compelled to ask the question as your Minnesota Vikings' very own Justin Jefferson not only has made the final selection for league MVP but also is one of three finalists for the offensive player of the year award.

First, we will talk about how the defensive coordinator search has progressed so far. We’ve already lost the possibility of Ryan Nielsen serving as DC because he took that position with the Atlanta Falcons. Currently, the Vikings have interviewed Steelers defensive assistant Brian Flores, their in-house assistant head coach, Mike Pettine, and Seattle defensive assistant, Sean Desai. What is the word on these individuals and how does Darren feel about them?

Then we’re excited to discuss the great season that Justin Jefferson had. There are two players in Vikings history that have won the award of offensive player of the year. The first was Fran Tarkenton, and the second was Adrian Peterson. Will Justin Jefferson be the third?

In the final theme, we will be looking at the trade possibilities of current Vikings players. What could net the Vikings the biggest gain if they are willing to trade someone to improve the team? There are many possibilities, but few that would produce the quality or quantity of draft selections needed to stay competitive and try to repeat a 13-win season. Would you trade any of these players? You might consider Justin Jefferson, Christian Darrisaw, Brian O’Neill, and Kirk Cousins off-limits, but who else does that leave? How about Danielle Hunter? Darren and Dave will get into these themes and more on today’s 2OB.
