In a recent turn of events, headlights have been intensified by rumors regarding the departure of Vikings offensive coordinator, John DeFilippo.

With the attention on every move players make, it is easy to see why the internet is abuzz with John DeFilippo’s latest reaction to queries involving his sudden departure to the Vikings after only 13 games.

The details regarding the departure of former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator remain rather mysterious. John DeFilippo was fired from the Vikings in 2018 after the team lost 21-7 to the Seattle Seahawks in week 14. The loss was a hard knock for all involved but the news of DeFilippo’s booting made everyone wonder why after only just 13 games. The Vikings suffered 3 out of 4 defeats, the Seahawks being the last before John DeFilippo was let go. DeFilippo, aged 40, was brought into the Vikings after he led the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl before his season began with the Vikings. Much was expected from the offensive coordinator having helped developed Carson Wentz over the time period of 24 months.

After DeFilippo was let go, wide receiver Adam Thielen told the press the offensive coordinator was not to be blamed for the team’s challenges. He went on to say that the players are the ones who need to complete the plays regardless of what they are called and that all 11 players should do the right thing as a team.

Many assume the move from the Vikings was due to the downfall of high expectations which was expected after Kirk Cousins joined the team as their new quarterback. When questioned about how he felt, John DeFilippowas not interested in commenting or making a statement.

What he did say was that he won’t be making many comments about anything that happened ‘up there’ and that he was more of a present kind of guy, focusing on the now rather than the past.

Currently the former Viking offensive coordinator is settling into his new role as the front-runner of the offense for the Jacksonville Jaguars which many are hoping to see play out well for both the team and the offensive coordinator. John himself has even been said to hoping this is his true fit and that his time with the Jaguars obviously works out in favor of him despite what some may think.

  1. Just Some Guy says:

    Your headline is click bait there is nothing in your story regarding why DeFilippo was fired. You make a broad assumption before saying he had no comment. You should change the title to Defilippo has no comment about his departure from the Vikings.

  2. Old bones says:

    Well that’s the one and only article I’ll read of yours. TOTAL CLICK BAIT CRAP!!!

  3. This is trash says:

    This is absolute trash journalism. Click bait and nothing more. Move along

  4. How is whomever wrote this employed as a journalist? Intentionally misleading title aimed to deceive people to get clicks, and the content of the article is like reading a transcript of a Bill Belichick halftime interview.
