I cannot believe you defend Childress. I would argue he is by a wide margin the worst head coach in the league, if not that easily top 3. He is nothing but a hindrance to the team. He has been decent as far as the draft goes but he cannot take all the credit for that and while he has managed to bring in some good players he has made just as many if not more really bad signings/trades (Berrian and Williams immediately come to mind). I really hope this Sunday I hear more then a few fire Childress chants.

I don't like Childress. I know the only reason we've been relevant the last three or so years is from the sheer talent our team possessed. Where is that talent this year?

The team is a ******* mess this year. Full of distractions. We got off to a rough start and Childress being our coach makes matters that much worth. It is tough to stay positive when you watch your coach choke away games from your team and while I agree these guys need to play better I do think Childress is solely responsible for at least 2 losses this season.

The DL sucking has come out of nowhere, but the OL has been below average to horrible for his entire tenure now, that one is most certainly on him because he has flat out refused to address it. You can't have a below average LT, C, RG and RT and expect success. All are very poor pass protectors yet you want to throw 40 times a game, all are solid run blockers. He has basically put together an OL full of maulers who can't pass block and then gone pass happy, that is on him.

Unfortunately I don't think that the coach is our only problem, the DL has been awful, the secondary has never been good since I've been a fan but Winfield is starting to look old and he is the only healthy guy who is even NFL starter level in the secondary. Leber is being exposed because the DL is playing so poorly. Greenway and Henderson are the only guys I'd give a pass mark on defense at this point.

Playcalling has been the worst part of the offense though. You have a run blocking line and a great RB yet you don't run the ball, you take him out on 3rd downs despite him being our 2nd best receiver as well to put in a bigger, slower version of Peterson. We have one receiver now that is worth mentioning and you didn't call plays for the other one before cutting him anyway...

Obviously a coaching change couldn't hurt at this point, someone who would come in and tell Favre to **** off would have my support.

That said, I'd rather wait the season out and get Cowher at season's end, he could work wonders for our sorry ass team then hire Frazier, who I honestly have very little faith in. Frazier is a DB coach with probably the worst DBs in the league and the defense has gotten consistently worse every season under him. Time for wholesale changes.

This is basically the biggest mistake he has made, and I can never figure it out.

Someone hire Childress for their PR department:

"I'm not gonna be here and be like Favre and tell you that I need a hug," Childress said. "I'll be all right."

Favre on Wednesday: "Is he a compassionate football coach? Like give us a hug or something like that? I sure could use one too. He hasn’t given me one, no. He’s OK."

Childress is a douche but this is a non-story.

Maybe it is my Favre hate, but that is just about the best thing that Childress has done for the Vikings, I loled!

You know, if Childress were fired at the end of this season, and then the vikings figure out what they're going to do about a stadium. I will be one happy boy. But if we don't fire Childress and move to LA? Idk what I will do.

I wonder if the Cowboys responding immediately with a new coach will help Ziggy press the EJECT button on the pompous red hot Chilly pepper in time for the Packer week.

They have 7 games to make up a 3-game deficit, and beating the Packers could cut that down to 2 games with 6 weeks to go. That's certainly doable, as the Chargers showed 2 years ago when down by 4 games with 4 weeks to go to catch Denver with Cutler.

I think Childress is s***canned tomorrow, and Leslie Frazier is promoted, even though his work on defense has been s*** this year. But for some reason, he's a hot coaching commodity, I hear.

As a Cheesehead, I want Childress to last one more week.

Are you serious?

With the shittiness of the NFC West, it will take 10 wins to make the playoffs for everyone else.

The Vikings are going to run the table at 7-0? This is a serious thread?
