Vikings QB Cousins unsure how much offense can change under new coordinator this late into year

December 12, 2018 01:45 PM

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins met with reporters on Wednesday morning, and was instantly asked about the change in offensive coordinators from John DeFilippo to Kevin Stefanski.

"When I'm saying not a lot's going to change, I mean we're not going to become a team that runs a zone read every play and runs a bunch of trick plays, and we're not going to just reinvent our offensive scheme," Cousins said. "But what needs to change as far as execution is we've got to score points, and you do that and you put yourself in a position, especially with the way our defense has played. So that's where our focus is, how do we score points? How do we execute play in and play out to make sure we're getting in the end zone and coming away with enough points to win a game."


DeFilippo was fired on Tuesday after another poor offensive showing Monday in Seattle. Stefanski has coached multiple offensive positions and has been an assistant with the Vikings since 2006.
