Vikings in rebuild mode? Maybe. Are Rick Spielman, Mike Zimmer the right leaders for that? Maybe not.

Decisions made in 2020 on Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook and Yannick Ngakoue do not look good. More importantly, though: it's fair to question whether decisions made in 2021 should be handled by Spielman and Zimmer.


The question facing the Minnesota Vikings is not so much whether they botched their latest series of trades, but whether the general manager who made them is the right general manager to operate in their wake.

Rick Spielman traded Stefon Diggs because he thought he had no choice, and wound up with a slew of draft choices and an outstanding rookie replacement in Justin Jefferson.
