Vikings Begin Arriving At Gillette Stadium

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 31, 2010 – 11:49 am

The first set of buses carrying Vikings personnel has arrived at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, and both Ryan and I are setting into our perches high in the press box. We have bright sunshine and partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low 50s and no precipitation in the forecast. Should be a great afternoon for football.

QB Brett Favre has arrived at the stadium but there is no official word yet on his status. We’ll have the official word when it becomes official (duh!) and we’ll also have the inactives for you right here on the vikings.com Blog and on Twitter; that will happen around 2:45 p.m. CT so stay tuned for that.

We’ll be chatting with fans during the game and we’ll also steam the Vikings press conferences after the game, so stick around vikings.com all afternoon for comprehensive coverage of your favorite team.

That’s it for now, but we’ll be back periodically with more updates.

    Dear FireChildress,

    You made some comments to me about Brad Childress being responsible for the Vikings record because of who they have on their team. Remember that it is a group of people, who decide the people who will be drafted, bought, and sold. Bill Belichick is also very boring in press conferences. They do that on purpose.————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–I really object to your blog name. It’s insulting. The negative things said about the curent Vikings coach were the same as those said about Dennis Green———–Dennis Green had basically the same record as that of Vince Lombardi.———————————————————————————————————–My point is that it will take a TEAM effort to win in the NFL. It’s too simple a solution to say that it’s the QB or the Head Coach’s fault. You can attack me all you want, but it won’t change the facts.

    Go tell that to Wade Phillips, Mike Singletary, John Fox………
    Childress must accept the responsibliity for this season’s subpar performances………plus he has made some bonheaded mistakes and ineffective play calling.

    Also-
    Remember the 2000 Superbowl??? Greatest Show On Turf vs. the no-name lunchpail Patriots?
    Who won?
    Bellichick put together a team of virtual no names and they beat the high flying Rams……
    A good coach can do this. A bad coach cannot do this with all the talent in the world…….

    yeah Fred, you don’t know a thing. who cares if Bill B is boring, he gets paid to win games, not entertain people. Chilly gets paid to win games, and he’s not doing his job, is he. Bill B. gets the job done bottem line. Chilly thinks he’s funny in his pressers, last laugh is on him when he gets fired !

    DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE EFFECTS OF GOOD COACHING………LIKEWISE DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE EFFECTS OF BAD COACHING.

    Sorry for monopolizing the blogs, but I think we outta give Leslie Frazier a shot…..I think the players would play for him…….

    i know they would play for Frazier. i think they should bring in Bud Grant if they have too. players would play for him too.

    Anyone can do a better job than Chilly. He plays to lose games. With him as head coach there is no killer instinct in this team. Just go back, pop the 98 season offensive tapes and learn.

    I hate to admit it, but a good example of how a coach can get his team playing well is GB’s Mike McCarthy…….despite numerous key injuries, he gets his team ready to play week in and week out………

    the players are still talking about the 12 players in the huddle in the nfc championship game last year. this comes from a very good source. they don’t like him, period
