Vikings have hired their OC. John DeFilippo the QB's coach for the Eagles is now our OC. So the QB choice for our team will get solved soon. good luck.

This guy is suppose to be a offensive genius to hear the media tell it. Chilly was also so time will tell.

I know a lot of people are stoked about this hire but I'm confused. He was the OC at cleveland (of all places cleveland) and then his next job was QB coach? Seems like a step back. I'm pretty sure the head coach called all the plays at Philly. The best part of his resume would probably be coaching up Wentz and then Foles when he had to step in.

I don't know, just not as excited as others seem. I'm sure it will be fine.

Correct on that Pederson called the plays in Philly which is one of the reasons he came here. He wanted to be an OC and play caller whereas had he stayed in Philly, he could have been the OC but not called the plays.
Can't knock him for the Cleveland gig because well, it's Cleveland. He was also the OC at Oakland from 2012 - 2014.

I'm always confused when teams go after the "hot" OC or DC or coaches from the Super Bowl teams. Just because they got to the playoffs or Super Bowl does not make them a good coach.

Be interesting to know how much of a hand he had in the "development" of Wentz and Foles because they were both pretty good QB's before they got to the Eagles. Heck, Foles was pretty good his first time around in Philly and that was under Kelly, arguably one of the worst coaches ever. He also coached Carr for a year at Oakland and Carr showed promise his first year and then took off the following year and now he has regressed without him so maybe this guy is a QB genius.

I guess time will tell. Be interesting to see how much influence he has over who comes, goes, stays at the Vikings QB position.
