    I can't say I disagree that Childress is an idiot when it comes to running an offense...I mean, the guy LIKES Tarvaris Jackson.

    Re: This will likely be a big story

    That article is only rivaled by some of the crap I see in the DMR.

    I'm am a Vikings fan, but I am not a Childress fan. However, that article was ridiculous. Obviously, I may be wrong, but some of that stuff just seemed made-up.

    Re: This will likely be a big story

    I'm just a casual observe of the NFL as I really don't have a favorite NFL team. But there is one thing that boggle my mind. How is there no respect for Coach Brad Childress? The guy starts coaching the Vikings in 2006 and improves in the win column every yea but it seems like he is on some sort of hot seat. Coach Chilly has a 36-28 record in the regular season and has advanced to the playoffs in last 2 years but it seems like he is a scapegoat to everyone. What gives?

    Know how Iowa wins in spite of Ken O'Keefe? Same story here. The Vikings win in spite of Brad Childress.

    Re: This will likely be a big story

    I just can't get over how the "head coach" goes down to talk to one player at his house in Mississippi to try to beg and convince him to come back. He fails, so he sends three players that are Favre's "best friends on the team" to go down and beg him to come back. It just seems like most normal head coaches would say enough is enough and let it go. I realize the Vikings have a much better shot of winning and doing big things this year when Favre is the QB but at what cost? I would think this has to be losing Childress some points in the locker room with the other 52 players. I just don't see how letting a 40 yr old drama queen basically run your team is a good thing.

    It's pretty obvious the players love him and he loves his teammates, otherwise he would be fishing in Mississippi right now.

    Fairly confident at this point it isn't about money for Favre. Doesn't appear to be the type of player that blew that big of a salary for 20 years.

    Re: This will likely be a big story

    My girlfriend's family are huge Vikings fans and they all hate Childress, and me and her went to last years Vikes-Ravens game and it was funny to hear everyone in the dome moaning and groaning at Childress' moronic coaching strategies. It doesn't surprise me that his players don't respect him when the fan base doesn't either. Hopefully Childress knows the four year extension he signed last year was solely because of Favre's play, because all the fans know it.

    By the way, as a Packer fan, I really am thankful my team isn't plastered all over Sportscenter like the Vikings or Jets, it's nice to have some go-about-your-business-quietly consistency in the franchise.

    I don't understand the comment about Childress not knowing the offense - it's a variation of the offense that he created and brought from Philly.

    Who knows how much hush money he's had to dish out over the years for sending pics of his manhood to interns.

    Re: This will likely be a big story

    I always get blasted for saying Childress is an awful coach and I hate Favre. It's nice that we can see eye to eye on something.
    Childress has managed to make the Vikings the biggest joke in the NFL after coming off a great season. What I wonder is, where do the Vikings sit after Favre is gone? After all the damage is done to the team's cred?

    Re: This will likely be a big story

    If what is in that article is actually true, those players complaining about Childress' lack of FB savvy and poor play calling on offense should go to NFL.com and check the stats from last year. The Vikings offense was fifth in total yards and 2nd in scoring. Hey dudes, it could get alot worse!

    The way that article was written, you'd think these guys were playing for Mike Tice, in whose final year as coach, Minnesota was 25th in total yards and 25th in scoring. Would you Childress-haters like to go back to those days?

    I'm sure Childress could do better..all coaches can. And it's sometimes appears that he is not the most personable coach. I don't have any great love for him as coach. But to call him an idiot or a moron just makes the ones doing so look foolish, player and fan alike. Put your emotions away and look at the stats/results.

    In short, even as Minnesota’s best hope to win a Super Bowl this season was rejoining the team,
    If, as that quote implies, Brett Favre is the Vikes best chance for a superbowl, why is the guy ragging on Childress for doing whatever he can to get the Vikes best chance for a superbowl back on the team?
