Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress, less than 24 hours after his team completed a remarkable come-from-behind win to move to 3-0, held his usual day-after-the-game press conference on Monday and was measured in his reflective comments. He was clearly pleased with the way his team performed but he also pointed out that there’s plenty of work to be done.
“Really a good team win,” Childress said. “At the same time, all of us are aware that at 3-0, they don’t crown any champions at the end of September. I just point to where we were at record-wise last year right about now. Everything is a work in progress.”
Childress said his team has “a ton of things to clean up” in all 3 phases of the game but that the players are willing to do what it takes to improve.
“Our guys are amenable to that (improving),” Childress said. “It’s a long season but they want to get it right and as long as they have that mentality, we’re going to remain a good football team.”
After reflecting on the 49ers game, Childress quickly indicated the team’s focus is now on the upcoming game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.
“Don’t know if I’ve ever been involved with a come-from-behind like that with no timeouts, but certainly a bunch of guys made plays, including the offensive linemen, who were able to do a great job protection-wise coming back down the field,” Childress explained. “Like I said, team win, we’ll take it, we’ll move on, we’ll get back going on Green Bay here this afternoon.”
