    Will you let Favre come-out with a no huddle offense in the first quarter to get off to fast start?

  2. By brian on Nov 9, 2010 | Reply

    why dont you just let favre run a no huddle defense right out of the shoot so we can get a lead so then defense can feel comfortable doing the sceme they have had the past 4 years.

    if we lose to chicago do you think you will be the next coach to be let go

    sorry Fred, your thing you have about Chilys record has no merit. Wade Phillips had a higher winning percentage-34-22, and he was gone yesterday. last year Farve had the best year of his life, and he was calling his own plays. Chilly also cost us the superbowl with 12 men in the huddle. Chilly should of been fired last year

    I went back and looked at the blogs for June, July, and August. If there were more than 4 comments in a blog, I tried to scan them all. What I found was that there were NO HATERS at all. NO ONE was critical of Brad Childress. ————————————————————————————————————————So what we have here is lots of people jumping on the bandwagon.

    The bottom line is to keep winning….yes football is a business but performance on the field is what brings championships. Leave the business issues where they belong and get these guys to believe in each other and put their God given talent to good use….

    Why do the vikings run to the right side more often, as opposed to running Peterson behind the left guard Hutchinson….One of the best run blockers in the league?? ……Especially inside the red zone….

    Childress is also ranked 112 of 450 NFL coaches in Total Wins, even though he has only coached 4.5 years. He is ahead of MIKE TOMLIN of the Steelers who has only one less year.

    In addition only 110 coaches out of 450 has ever won a playoff game. Brad Childress is one of them.

    F Jones, it sounds like you’re making the case that he is a mediocre coach with a highly talented team.

  12. By Frederick Jones on Nov 9, 2010 | Reply

    arahn, what point are you trying to make? Since when is .542 mediocre? One of my blogs puts Childress ahead of 5 former SUPER BOWL coaches: Gruden, Reeves, Fox, Vermiel, and Ewbank in winning percentage. How is that mediocre?

  13. By arahn on Nov 9, 2010 | Reply

    F Jones, the point is that with the caliber team he has it is hard not to have a .542 record. Also, he has lost the confidence of his players.

    yeah fred, there were 8 pro-bowlers on the team last year. my sister could of coached the team to a better record

  16. By Mike on Nov 9, 2010 | Reply

    Why is it everytime you call for Peterson to run up the middle, he loses yardage but everytime you call a play to outside he gains 10 or more yards? Kind of a NO BRAINER to me!!!

    You should also get Joe Webb involved, maybe have him run that inside trap play that you have had Harvin run. Your wasting talent by leaving them on the sideline. I guess thats better than cutting talent and throwing away 2 draft picks!!!

  17. By fire childress on Nov 9, 2010 | Reply

    yeah, medicore is right, his average is 9-7. last time i looked, 9-7 doesn’t even cut it for a playoff spot

  18. By Mike on Nov 9, 2010 | Reply

    They will be lucky if they get to 9 and 7 this year. LUCKY !!! Of course this is the team that let 3 assistant coaches leave and become Superbowl winning couches. It will probably happen again. Childress will stay long enough for Frazier to go to Dallas as the Def Coor or to Carolina.

    When are you going to man up and admit at least some fault in the national media so they back off and let your team play? The players needs you to step up here and get the pressure/questions off them. Sometimes the best way to regain your power/authority is to show you’re accountable and reveal a little vulnerability. No crying. Just a little. Then squash the issue in future questions and let the players play from here on.

    Chilly will never be ranked ahead of a super-bowl coach. what are you smoking Fred?

  21. By Frederick Jones on Nov 9, 2010 | Reply

    Ok, He has a high amount of talent on his team. Is there a team where this is not true? Lost the confidence of his players, you say? Is there a coach who has not lost the confidence of his players, in any sport, in the history of the world? Weeb Ewbank’s lifetime win percentage was .502. He is the only coach to have a team in the Super Bowl for both the AFL, and NFL. And Ewbanks team, the NY Jets won the first super bowl for the AFL.

    F Jones, as you stated earlier some people hadn’t been complaining about chilly until recently — jumping on the bandwagon as you put it. Well, I kept quiet about chilly until he went on national TV and dumped blame the for losses a player who was giving great effort when the real problem was his.
    Second, he fired Moss because Moss criticized him — If he were a good coach he could have made great use of Moss’ talent.

    Coach, why don’t we see more of Erin Henderson? He could keep the LB’s fresh for 3rd Down plays and he can do damage on special teams.

    Hey Brad, Favre was rated #20 of the best football players to ever play the game in the history of the NFL. You think maybe you could trust him more with play calling, no huddle, game planning, ect?

    Brad, your comment last week during your press conference said it best “When things don’t work out, you must move quickly”. Why don’t you take your own advice and step down since you have lost all respect from the players, the fans, and even the owner. You say every decision you’ve made is for the best interest of the viking organization, then stepping down is what you need to do. You would probably get some respect back and be able to look in the mirror.

    Hey Coach –

    Why did you decide to switch to a predominantly passing game the week after you quit on Moss?

    Understanding that the O-Line has been playing very poorly, why can’t you call one trick play every now and then, like a flea-flicker, to generate some excitement and energy and show the potentcy of this offense? You tried a little razzle-dazzle for Moss’s first play, but had an ineligible receiver.

    Are all of the players worried that if they disagree with you now they will get waived?

    why dont you do more dump offs to adrain peterson, about everytime favre has done that we get 10 plus yards. Why dont we do it 5-10 times a game?

    There once was a coach called Childress, who was very short on finesse,he knew his job could be saved,if only Ziggy could be waived.

    Are you going to sign Al Harris? He seems like he wants to prove himself and could be a huge upgrade to our secondary.

    coach there’s not much i can say. we know what the problem is. but i just have one question. do you think you could try and get al harris? he would be a huge part for this team. and he could also give us some info on green bay. but our secondary is horrible and a good veteran like him could help out. thats all i got for now. thanks for your time

    hey coach, just a few things im seeing AD runs a lot better without tahi in the mix probably because he can see the field better. also i wouldnt mind seeing a few more runs with percy, and once we get rice back id like to see AD and percy in the backfield and fake screen to one of them run a screen to the other one. anyways thanks for your time coach and i know ur not the one throwing ints and fumbling the ball sorry you have to take all the blame

    Brad you should resign and let Frazier become the new head coach.

    Childress has a lifetime win% of .542? That is Pathetic! with Adrian Peterson showing up in his 2nd year and his win % is ONLY .542. LOSER! How many other coaches have Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen, Percy Harvin and several other Pro-bowlers and only finish last year 12-4. ZERO! We have all world talent. Why were we not 16-0 with a super bowl? Why have we lost at all this year? Only .542 win percentage? PLEASE

    Brad I been a vikings fan since the first game I watched the rookie Fran T. Up ntil last year he was my best favorit QB. He was also one of the last QBs to call his own plays , Fran understood the game , But Bret is a better smarter QB . Let bret call the plays on a gameplan the coaches work out . I tell ya straight the QB has a better feel for the game than any coach. Let Bret take over the offens in the game . You will be rewarded with a win in dallas in 2011.

    A leader with vision has a clear, vivid picture of where to go
    Integrity is the integration of outward actions and inner values
    Dedication means spending whatever time or energy is necessary to accomplish the task at hand
    Magnanimity means giving credit where it is due. A magnanimous leader ensures that credit for successes is spread as widely as possible throughout the team. Conversely, a good leader takes personal responsibility for failures. This sort of reverse magnanimity helps other people feel good about themselves and draws the team closer together. To spread the fame and take the blame is a hallmark of effective leadership.
    Leaders with humility recognize that they are no better or worse than other members of the team.
    Openness means being able to listen to new ideas
    Creativity is the ability to think differently, to get outside of the box that constrains solutions
    Fairness means dealing with others consistently and justly
    Assertiveness is not the same as aggressiveness. Rather, it is the ability to clearly state what one expects so that there will be no misunderstandings.
    A sense of humor is vital to relieve tension and boredom, as well as to defuse hostility
    FREDERICK, you can crunch the numbers all you want, but without leadership qualities all you have just numbers. Put this in your pipe and smoke it.
    FIRE CHILDRESS…..

    Coach Childress does have a respectable winning percentage. But remember, don’t ever put overall winning percentage over someone with a Super Bowl ring. Mike Tomlin has one of those. Tony Dungy has one of those. Brian BIllick has one of those. Leslie Frazier has one of those (as a player). This is a season that going 10-6 and making the playoffs wasn’t the goal. That was two years ago. Our goal is to get to the Super Bowl, and then game plan to win one game.

    I forget who blogged earlier about letting Brett call plays, but, at this point in the season with everyone’s backs against the wall. Let Brett and the offensive players script their first two series of plays. See if we can get out to a quick start, they will probably have a better feel for where the blitz is coming from. Which gap to run the ball through. Set the tempo. A friend was at the game Sunday and he felt the plays coming in were coming in slow. Time in the huddle was minimal, but then to get the blocking packages called out the clock was constantly down to 1 or 2 seconds before the snap.

    Frederick Jones has done some homework. When you look at who wears Viking purple today, and who suited up on the Super Bowl winning teams of the coaches you named in your report. I’d argue that in most matchups the Vikings today have greater talent. Not at every position, but in a position by position head to head matchup. Therefore, it isn’t unreasonable to be disappointed in the production we’ve seen until the 4th quarter on Sunday, and hard to argue that the coach is putting together a game plan that is effective. 2-5 is proof of that. Changing mid-season is a tough go though! So we all have to hope that we can find the spark to continue our winning ways. We’ve played a tougher schedule than last year, so some adjustment in expectation is reasonable. Did we have this many key players with injuries that have caused them to miss games at this point last year? What have we had 3 centers so far this year. WE have to be realistic. Frederick, we will all gladly say you were right, when Zygi hoists the Lombardi Trophy in Dallas in February!

    Coach Childress: THe Bears are proving to have difficulty running the ball. Will their be a greater emphasis to bring the blitz when the Bears are facing 3rd and long situations? Or do you feel our front 4 can create enough pressure to keep the extra help back in coverage?

    Great game last weekend, clutch win.
    Saw the piece of you and your son on ESPN, we all appreciate his service.

    With the injuries at corner, would you personally be interested in acquiring Al Harris?

    I couldn’t put it any better than an earlier comment from Simple Solutions. As I went through his points, I realized why I have no respect for Childress and if I have no respect what do the players have. He failed badly on every point except possibly dedication. That’s not a leader.

    Please retire Brad and do all the fans a big favor. That’s the only way you’ll ever get any respect out of me. We need to give Frazier a chance before he ends up as head coach of another team. I’ve heard the players like him and have a lot of respect for him.

    I wish Ziggy would read all these comments to see how discontented the fans are.

    Brad:
    The game plan versus the Bears is an easy one. Blitz all day long. The Bears don’t have enough talent on offense that they will burn the Vikings. Other than Hester, name one… Let Brett handle the offense (maybe more no-huddle) and blitz like crazy on defense. And…have your secondary BE READY to catch the wayward throws of Cutler. NOT ROCKET SCIENCE
    Stop being part of the problem and give up some of that control. This WILL be the only way you keep your job.
