    Most Coaches get three years to fix a team that was in a losing season to turn it around so I dont know where your getting this 4th season. If we dont make playoffs he is done. This is not a wait and see league, If you like to think that its fine but its not. Its a win now league. Childress is the leader of this team and deserves all the blame. Coaches always and will forever get blamed.

    Should he be fired midseason? I dont know. Although He should be fired at the end of the year if we are below 500 and not playoffs.

      I agree with that, too bad we will not be that bad of a team the rest of the year.


      As for the win now league, yeah of course it is a win now league but honestly it is hard to have faith in the Vikings regardless of who is their coach considering their success or lack there of over the years.

      Either it is the offense is amazing and the defensive is horrible. Or now, the defense is great and the offense is horrible. Still like the move of forgetting the power offense and switching to focusing on defense as a organization.

      Childress sure does not have the Pat Riley factor though, he is not very motivational, does not come off like a man in charge and is not a great leader. However that has been said of many other coaches until the won a super bowl, then they were great players.


      I still say though, a head coach in the NFL is not as important as say in college football. Good person to blame but teams can be good without a great head coach. Aka Dallas Cowboys, even though they might lose because their head coach is a wuss and never stands up for anything.

      I have always believed, players really make coaches look good, and players can also make coaches look worse than they really are.

      College, it is a totally different story and the head coach means a lot more in my book.

        You can. After you hire him this offseason you'll only have to wait three years until you can drop Linehan.

        • Just watched Mewelde Moore make some big plays to help the Steelers win on MNF. Im happy for him, I always liked him when he played for the Vikes.

              Agreed, I think he did a lot of good things for us without getting much credit.
              What if everyone simultaneously disobeys?
              It aint a game if no one plays, oh.

              • just to forewarn you all...i am a little bit flustered with what i just read. i may get somewhat aggressive with what i say here.

                First of all, Ozzy you piss me off. You are the only freakin person on this forum that is backing up childress and denying that the vikings have talent on this team. You are the only one on this forum that is putting it on the players that our record stands as it is. it is the play calling that is making us suck ***. When we hire a good freakin play caller maybe something will come out of the woodwork. so what im trying to say is FIRE BRAD CHILDRESS. HE IS FREAKIN USELESS. HE HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THIS TEAM!! I really think that he should go. after this year if we have a losing record he is gone.

                my prediction thus far for the season is 5-11. we cant get production at more than one position. our needs for next season are as follows:

                1. Quarterback - Jackson is trash. Frerotte is trash. Booty is young and unproven. either draft someone, or bring in a proven veteren...aka jeff garcia or derek anderson or seneca wallace.

                2. Tight End - Stonehands shiancoe sucks balls. he cant catch worth crap. he needs to go. you see ends in chicago and pittsburgh that are preforming wonderfully. and we decide to stick with shiancoe. smart...

                3. Linebackers - an upgrade on ben lebers side would be nice. hes good, but not quite good enough. we also need depth at the backer position. not a lot of depth means if one gets injured then we are screwed up the butt.

                4. Wide Reciever - Berrian has been a disappoint thus far. of course he doesnt have a good freakin qb to throw him the ball. id give this one another season to develop. but still. seriously. our recievers cant catch.

                5. Cornerback - Cedric griffen isnt that good. he can tackle and thats about it. we tried to solve our problems by bringing in Smoot a couple years ago. that was a joke....bring in another veteren or find someone in the first round of the draft.

                6. Defensive End - one of the lesser needs. but its still there. depth is needed along the line.

                7. Saftey - Tyrell Johnson isn't so good...yet. Darren Sharper is losing his mind. Williams has yet to play a game.

                Lets be real...Childress hasn't done much for the team. sure AD and getting Jared Allen. but football isnt a one man show.

                Ozzy...get over the fact that Childress is the worst thing to ever happen to the vikings.

                We have been having quarterback problems since before i can remember. ever since cunningham lost it after the 98 season. who has done something? Culpepper? he relied on randy moss. he wasnt a good qb. he lost it as soon as moss was traded! he was very one sided. when you have a wide reciever you can do anything you want. all you have to do is throw it in the air and moss would catch it. What? Jeff George? who the hell is that? kelly holcomb? todd bowman? and now tavaris jackson? lets bring in someone who is proven or draft somone who we know will produce. WE NEED NUMBERS! FEWER INTERCEPTIONS. MORE TOUCHDOWNS! AND NO ONE WHO HAS FUMBLEFREAKINITIS.

                We have the best 1-2 punch in the leage. USE IT DAMNIT! USE IT! get chester taylor in the backfield, AD in the slot. woo! spells touchdown everytime.

                we need to get more creative with play calling. more reverses, boots, flea flickers. yes...they still work. how bout running back passes? AD can do everything else. why not have him throw?



                yes i apologize...i ranted on a little bit. Ozzy...shut up.

                • You really think Ben Leber isn't good enough? He's not great, but from what I've watched of him he's more than fine for a SLB.

                  • ben leber is good for the time being. hes a good tackler. good run stopper. but i still think that the position can be upgraded.

                      Improve with what? Are you willing to spend a high draft pick on a guy that will only play 2 downs. Better yet, who in free agency are you going to get that's a better SLB than him? All the talks of replacing him are IMO ridiculous. The guy is only 29 years old and is the best SLB in our division, we have many other places to upgrade before even thinking about any of our starting linebackers.

                      • i just think that there can be more intensity at the position. im not saying bring in a high draft pick. there are obviously other things that a high draft pick can be spent on. im simply saying upgrade the position.

                        and also...when i say upgrade, i may not always mean "replace ben leber" i might also mean, get some depth.

                        sometimes you should read between the lines before you assume that im a dumbass.

                          So let me get this straight, when you say that an upgrade at Ben Leber's position would be nice and that he's not quite good enough, you're not calling for him to be replaced? Damn, I need to get better at this whole reading between the lines thing.

                          • point taken. maybe ill take it back...ben leber doesnt need to be upgraded, but we need depth. thats it. depth.

                            that goes for every position, not just linebacker

                            for once ill admit i was wrong.

                            that takes a lot to do that for me.
