Not an original quote? I'll keep it in the signature anyway, out of respect. And it fits, lol.

Firstly... Yay. I just don't like Childress as a human and his playcalling was just so awful. He did some good things but I will not miss him...

Quote:
Frazier is a good coach that I think they'll want to play hard for.
I know none of us are privy to inside information or anything but on what basis is Frazier a good coach? He seems like a nice enough guy but the defense has consistently gotten worse each year he has been here to the point where it is distinctly mediocre at this point. Most concerning is that the secondary has gotten considerably worse under his watch, the secondary being his speciality. Honestly, our secondary is close to the worst in the league.

As I said, seems like a nice guy but has done absolutely nothing as a coach that gives me any confidence in his ability. He is pretty much like a DC version of Lovie Smith. Sit there doing the exact same thing over and over again looking stunned that it isn't working. Doesn't make adjustments or changes just stubbornly sticks to the same thing.

I can't help but feel like Childress got himself in this position by overachieving last year on that back of Favre playing nothing like Favre. Now that Favre is playing like Favre again we look woeful. But teams who don't have their best WR all year and have poor OL play should not expect sustained success and our OL has been poor for a good 4 years now and we really haven't done anything to address the problems.

It also feels like the Dallas situation where the defense has become very poor this year and now the guy in charge of that is getting the head coaching job. Will be interesting to see if Frazier approaches it like Garrett and basically totally changes how he does things on his side and whether it was Childress that was handcuffing the defense or not.

That's because people see black Minnesota defensive coordinator and automatically assume he's Tony Dungy and Mike Tomlin rolled into one.

Like you said, the defense has gotten consistently worse every year he's been running it. And he's interviewed for multiple head coaching jobs and been turned down. There's also the fact that Wilf waited until this long to make the move, despite it being obvious that Childress had completely lost the team.

Something doesn't add up. The Vikings, free from the wrath of Chilly, will probably stop feeling sorry for themselves and win a couple games. I'm interested in seeing how this all turns out.

Mike Tomlin... still hurts we let him go! Now he could coach a defense!

LOL, nice.

Favre's getting the start against the Redskins. I'm not surprised. If Favre can't play well against that decimated secondary, he's even worse than I thought.

I'm the least racist person you'll ever meet, but I can already see those dots getting connected.

Firing Childress and seeing if you have something with Frazier is the correct move, but I have doubts that he's all he's cracked up to be.

Like I said, the Vikings will probably reel off a few wins now that they've stopped feeling sorry for themselves, but I'm doubtful about him as a long term answer.

If you're a coach on the hot seat, I would not recommend playing the Packers this year. Mike Singletary, you're next!
