Les Steckel was Bud Grant’s successor and it was a disaster. The young, unconventional coach was 3-13 in his only season. It was so bad, the Vikings brought Bud Grant back to get the team out of the abyss and in the right direction. Steckel turned off veterans with his abrasive motivational tactics and had a revolving door at the starting quarterback spot, as Tommy Kramer, Wade Wilson, and Archie Manning all had significant playing time in the 1984 season.
