Stefanski starting to figure out what works best
Questioning the hiring of Kevin Stefanski as the team’s offensive coordinator was fair after the Vikings’ first four games of the season. Minnesota was dominating on the ground, but their passing attack left a lot to be desired.
The lack of success through the air eventually caused Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs to publicly voice their frustrations with the offense being a little too one-dimensional to begin the year. Based on the Vikings’ last two games though, Diggs and Thielen’s concerns appear to have been taken pretty seriously.
Minnesota still ran the ball a bunch during the last two weeks, but a lot of their rushing attempts have come at the end of their matchups when they are trying to run the clock down. The Vikings have turned to their passing offense more during the early quarters of their last two games and the results have been very pleasing.
As talented as Minnesota’s offense is, everyone has to remember that Stefanski still hasn’t been a full-time play-caller for even half a season yet. He’s shown a lot of progress during the Vikings’ last two games and the offense is really starting to figure out the best way to utilize all of their talent each week.
