Tice changes Green's game plan
Knight Ridder Newspapers
BALTIMORE -- Mike; Tice altered the offensive game plan Sunday night that Green put in place early last week. Tice called for more long passes.
"Bombs away," Tice said before the game. Wynn's ineffectiveness squelched that idea. Wynn missed several wide-open receivers.
Tice said he had a "blast" coaching the team, even in defeat. But he lamented his decision on the interception just before the half, deep in Ravens' territory. After a botched punt snap, the Vikings had the ball on the Ravens' 10. But on the first play, Wynn attempted a pass to Moss in the left side of the end zone. Ravens corner Chris McAlister picked off the underthrown pass.
"I called the dumb pass at the end of the half," Tice said, adding that if he becomes a head coach, he'll follow his instincts more.
