Can Brian Flores Fix The Vikings Defense?

Our first impressions of Brian Flores and what he’ll bring to the Vikings’ defense were good. What changes will come of it? In the State of the Vikings series, Darren and Dave break down the tight end room. Should the Vikings draft one? This and more on this episode of 2OB. SKOL!

On today’s episode of Two Old Bloggers - Can Brian Flores Fix The Vikings Defense? The Minnesota Vikings had their introductory press conference where Kevin O’Connell introduced his new defensive coordinator, Brian Flores. What were your first impressions coming from the press conference?

Today we’re going to get into three themes as usual. One of those first impressions of Brian Flores. Did you like that he’s going to be “aggressive”, but “not reckless”? Did you see the chemistry between him and KOC? What sort of defense he’ll run? He did come out and say it depends on our opponent. Yes, he confirmed 3-4 is the base defense, but the answer shows he’ll adapt to what is best to get the job done, and for the Vikings to win. That has to be music to all of our ears.

We’ll continue with our State of the Vikings series this week looking at the tight ends. The room is small and has only three under contract with TJ Hockenson leading the way. Who will be next? Will Hockenson get an extension? How does that all figure into the big picture? Cap space and planning for Justin Jefferson all play into figuring that out.

And we are going to wrap up with some quick hitters. Za’Darius Smith, getting his house ready to put on the market? A couple of guys sign, Blake Brandel and Khyiris Tonga. Then look at what Sharrif Floyd is up to nowadays.

Darren and Dave will get into these themes and more on today’s 2OB.
