  • Just looking at the schedule I see 4 more wins but I can easily see this team quitting on Childress and completely tanking.

    • I guess Wilf supports Childress now, along with some of the players. I guess moss' actions were "brash" in the locker room.

        • J Mike, I got your rep message, just posting back here to respond to your question since I have to spread it around.

          Yes, I think 9-7 can win the division, but I see no way this team finishes above .500 at this point. There is just too much nonsense going around and team morale appears to be at an all-time low.

          Let's say we fire Childress, Frazier takes over, Favre continues to play well like on Sunday, and our pass rush gets going. Sure, I could see us taking the division if all those things happen, but that appears extremely unlikely at this point. I'm guessing we'll finish 7-9, with our 4 losses coming to GB, NYG, @PHI, and one of the 2 Bears games (Peppers will destroy us at least once).

          • The media hammered Chilly today:


            We've said it time and again -- pro football coaches lie when lying suits their interests. Every once in a while, a football coach gets caught in a lie.

            On Wednesday, Vikings coach Brad Childress met with the media for the first time since cutting receiver Randy Moss, and Childress essentially admitted that he lied to them on Monday about Moss' status with the team.

            Specifically, Childress met with the media on Monday at 12:30 p.m. CT, and he said nothing to suggest that Moss may be in trouble. Then, immediately after the press conference, Childress went to tell the team that Moss was out.

            "As long as the right people are contacted in the right order, I think that's important," Childress said after being lectured (and we liked it) by one member of the media regarding the fact that he essentially lied to the fans. "Obviously it wouldn't have served a purpose to come out here and tell you guys and have you go run with it before the dominoes start to go down," Childress said.

            Though it obviously was deceptive, Childress said, "It's not an attempt to deceive."

            And it all easily could have been avoided. Move the meeting to before the press conference, or the press conference to after the meeting. But Childress, in our view, didn't want to face the music when the news was fresh. So he gladly lied to the media on Monday, and how he's hiding behind a chain-of-command-style excuse for not being honest.

            Childress refused to get into any of the details regarding the decision to dump Moss, other than to say, "It didn't work out." The assembled reporters tried their best to get Childress to elaborate, with Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune at one point asking Childress how he was "duped, fooled, whatever" regarding Moss.

            Childress was careful to point out the names of personnel decisions that have worked, explaining, "Some work out and some don't work out. And some end up being short term and some end up being long term.

            So what didn't work out?

            "I'm not gonna get into a lot of the particulars," Childress said. "I'm not gonna do that. It's done, it's other with. . . . It's a decision I had to make."

            Childress said he didn't speak to Moss about the move, but that Childress made multiple phone calls and sent text messages in an effort to reach him. Eventually, V.P. of player personnel Rick Spielman spoke with Moss.

            At one point, Childress called it "a programmatic non-fit."

            Plenty of fans likely believe that same term applies to Childress himself. And more and more fans in Minnesota soon could decide that the term also applies to the entire franchise.

            • For what it's worth, i think it's pretty presumptuous for the media to think they are entitled to every information, all the time, no matter what the consequences...

              Childess had to retain the information until he informed the team ownership and the players, then he talked to the media. If he had done the opposite, he would have been blasted for informing the players through the media... Either way, he can't win.

              • One other thing, it's pretty funny from Mike Florio to accuse someone of lying when all his web sites does, most of the time, is publishing "rumors" and "reports". Until, they are proven true, both the rumors and reports could be considered lies as well...

                • It's going to be interesting when the vikes return to Minny this weekend. I really hope that everyone is wearing "fire chilly" shirts and chants "fire chilly" the whole game.

                        • Oh Childress, you ******* ******:

                          How do you compensate for Moss' loss on the field?


                          BC: We've got Hank Baskett, who has been inactive. We'll elevate his turns and get him in the mix. He'll help us there and he'll help us on special teams.
                          Once again, Hank Baskett - the hero. Gonna save us from this dreaded season and make us forget all about Randy Moss. I wonder if this guy actually believes any of the ******** that comes out of his mouth...

                          • ESPN's Ed Werder reports #Vikings WR Randy Moss' placement on waivers was delayed so Zygi Wilf could weigh keeping Moss and firing Childress

                            That seat Childress is on must feel like Venus.

                              Damn. That situation very nearly turned into best case scenario for me. I never thought myself to be this fan but at this point I wouldn't say I am cheering for losses but I am certainly not going to be too excited about wins.

                              • Since the Titans are the team that claimed Moss, and they have a winning record, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that mean that all the teams with an even or losing record passed on claiming the guy right?

                                And that's for free, no draft pick at all to be lost for it. None of those 15-18 teams even wanted him for free.

                                Does that make any of you feel better at all?
