A light at the end of the tunnel

From SI’s Truth and Rumors:

An 80-minute meeting Mike Tice called with his players earlier in the day left some wondering if their coach was on the verge of resigning. Some players praised Tice, with one veteran calling the meeting very “useful.” But three players said Tice told them he contemplated resigning hours after the Vikings’ blowout loss to the Falcons, a point two players considered deplorable. One starter said Tice delivered a “rambling resignation speech.” “He quit on us,” the starter said. “I lost all respect for him.” “You could tell he gave up on us,” another player said. According to that player, Tice also said he would not be surprised if Vikings owner Zygi Wilf made a coaching change.

We can only hope…. But Zygi’ first move – announcing that the next Vikings stadium will be open to the elements – gives one some cause for optimism that he’ll soon do the right thing with regards to Mike Tice.
