Preifer should have been fired a long time ago.

What's going on in here?

Some day I'm going to go back and read about our punter who didn't get out there to hold for a FG until there were 11 seconds left on the play clock

I'm saving it for a special occasion

Some day I'm going to read about a Vikings kicker that has any semblance of success for longer than one season but I'd have to go back to Ryan Longwell.

Three years too late - like so many other things with the team and organization.

If the Vikes are serious about a playoff run this year, they would fire Priefer right now, this very minute.

I admit to sometimes getting caught up in a non-winners mentality, but I still think Priefer sucks @ss and should be fired

Merry Christmas, David. I hope all is well!



Thank you for this wish from three years ago to this day. I'm typing this reply from the exact same unit in the exact same facility. The only difference is this time I'm an employee. Christmas day at a treatment facility for chemical dependence is a surreal event. It's sad, happy, filled with depression and filled with hope all at once.

I had a great Christmas in rehab 35 years ago, which is to say embarking on the new journey was at once exhilarating, frightening, fresh, and dragging the anvil of history. Everyone would profit from experiencing that.

Wow! Thanks for sharing that with me. I do remember that time from three years ago well. You've made my night. Thank you!

What would it take for Priefer to get fired ?

His fate is tied to Zimmer. Zimmer loves him. He was one of the few (if only) coaches Zimmer kept on when he came in.

David, I agree with you for the most part, especially with firing Priefer, but not sure on Carlson.


Daniel Carlson finished 16–17 and made all his PATs for Oakland. Don’t talk to me about pressure kicks - the kid was kicking to save his career every time he went out there. If speilman and zimmer are safe for the love of god let’s at least get rid of Priefer.


Of course I agree. To me the pressure of being released after 2 games and having to prove yourself was no easier than starting off your career hoping to make a name for yourself.


I see at as he passed the 1st test, 1st level with Oakland. Yes, there is pressure to make a team, but the pressure is still higher for a game winner, then game winners late in the season for a good team, then playoff game winners.

A) making any FG
B) making a game winning FG
C) making a game winner late in the season for playoff team
D) making game winner in playoffs

So he didn't pass level A with the Vikes, but did with Oakland. He hasn't passed the B level yet. He passed the A level possibly motivated to prove others wrong, or probably just to save his career.

Priefer is likely the reason why Carlson never even achieved level A with the Vikings, but maybe not. We will see if Carlson keeps his job next year. It's possible this was just a spike to save his career, and that he regresses next year and is out of the league by midseason, or sooner.

BREAKING NEWS: Mike Priefer will not return as Vikings Special Teams Coach

It was rumored, thought and even suggested for most of the season but now it's official. The Minnesota Vikings will be moving on in 2019 without Mike Priefer as special teams coordinator.

quote:

Ben Goessling✔@GoesslingStrib
From @markcraignfl and me: Mike Priefer will not be returning as the Vikings’ special teams coordinator in 2019.


Priefer joined the Minnesota Vikings back in 2011 and has stuck with the team as Special Teams coordinator since then.

2018 seemed to be the breaking point for the Vikings as they spent a mid-round draft pick on Daniel Carlson only to cut ties with the rookie kicker two years into his career. He also drafted and oversaw the time with Blair Walsh with the Vikings.

Zimm is out of excuses next season.

Does the new Special Teams coach get to draft his own kicker and punter?

I hate seeing anybody lose their job, but this guy was a certified bustout as a st coach. Let's find a guy who can actually help kickers and punters, not wreck them.

Why? Then people will just go to the General Vikes thread to bitch about how long it took to get rid of Priefer.
