The special teams hasn't been stellar in every game, but it's not the reason that the Vikings have lost 9 games. ST mistakes were likely factors in 2 of the losses this year. However, those mistakes weren't scheme-related - they were breakdowns by individual players (MIA - bad snap on blocked punt, DET (2nd game) - missed block on a FG attempt), and Locke also failed to pin teams deep when they had the chance. Blaming the coach for those miscues seems to be a pretty big stretch.
If we're judging position & unit coaches by the severity of their player's mistakes, then the OLine coach, DB coach, LB coach, WR coach and RB coach all should get tossed long before the ST coach.
Heimdall kept the “ringing” horn, Gjallarhorn, which could be heard throughout heaven, earth, and the lower world; he would sound the horn to summon the gods when their enemies drew near.
