Vikings Focused On Making Corrections, Moving On To Green Bay

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 15, 2010 – 3:08 pm

Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress met with reporters for his usual day-after-the-game press conference on Monday and it was clear his focus was on finding a way to get his team to play better, especially with another NFC North game on the docket this weekend.

The Vikings didn’t play well in Sunday’s loss to the Bears, a 27-13 decision at Soldier Field that included 4 turnovers, and Childress said his team’s intention this week is to fix the mistakes that plagued them during the loss.

“Our sole view is on corrections and what we need to do to improve, on offense, defense and special teams,” Childress said. “And that’s the tact I’ll take with the team here in just a little short time (at the 1:00 team meeting). There were opportunities, obviously we didn’t follow through on those opportunities.

“There’s a lot, a lot of football left to play here. It’s important that we get these things corrected sooner than later. And we will.”

Childress wouldn’t identify specific aspects of his team’s performance that need to be corrected and instead spread responsibility out to the entire team.

“You’ve got to paint with a broad brush,” Childress said when asked to put his finger on what factors are causing his team to play poorly. “You can’t just say one thing. We’re doing it all together, so we’re just not playing [well] enough. We’re not doing the things…you can talk about converting third downs, you can talk about turnovers, you can talk about getting off the field. It’s all encompassing and typically that’s the way it is. There’s not one stand-alone factor.”

The loss on Sunday dropped the Vikings to 3-6 on the season, less than a year removed from a 12-4 effort that led to an appearance in the NFC Championship team. The underperforming Vikings are disappointing to fans and football followers, but there’s no doubt that Childress and his players are more disappointed than anyone.

“I expect to win every week we go out; all weeks individually,” Childress said. “I’m not surprised (that his team is 3-6) based on the way that we’ve played. I am surprised from the standpoint that every week we go out, Green Bay included, I expect to win this game.”

Notes
– Childress said QB Brett Favre was sore on Monday but that he anticipates Favre will resume practice on Thursday and be ready to go for Sunday’s tilt against Green Bay.
— Percy Harvin injured his ankle during the Bears game but Childress said he’ll receive treatment on the injury over the next few days and will make the push to play this weekend.
— On whether or not his sees his players playing hard, Childress said, “I see guys playing hard. I don’t see us executing particularly well right now, and it’s a given that if you don’t execute particularly well on offense, defense and special teams you’re probably going to get your rear end handed to you.”

    i think the vikes go after vick next year and in the draft go for a center and LT and DT…..heck even CB want be griffen want be same!

    Looked like most of the team has given up already — some never were trying this season (McKinnie, you are why opp-Ds can predict almost every play going to the right is ’cause BigMac is on the left). Now it’s been ESPN says Favre will be getting a shoulder MRI this week. Honestly, if the team is planning to lay down for the rest of the season he may as well end his consecutive start streak and let T. Jack scramble around in the back field for the remaining games.

    WHO ARE THESE IDIOTS ASKING CHILDRESS QUESTIONS? JUDD AND WHO ELSE? THEY SPENT 90% OF THE INTERVIEW ASKING ABOUT FAVRE’S SHOULDER, MRI, AND OTHER PLAYER’S HEALTH STATUS. THERE WAS FINALLY ONE REPORTER WHO ASKED ABOUT THE GUYS SLIPPING AND THE FIELD CONDITION.

    WHAT’S BRAD’S ANSWER…”IT’S AN INDIVIDUAL DECESION TO PUT ON LONGER CLEATS” THAT IS NOT A GOOD HEAD COACH!!! WHEN BRAD SAW HIS GUYS SLIPPING AND FALLING AND CAUSING INTERCEPTIONS HE SHOULD HAVE TOLD HIS COACHES TO TALK TO THE PLAYERS ABOUT TRYING SOME LONGER CLEATS. THESE PLAYERS ARE NOT SMART ENOUGH OR THEY ARE TOO LAZY TO CHANGE THEIR CLEATS. AND BRAD SHOULD HAVE SAID SOMETHING!!!

    AND WHY DONT THESE MORON REPORTERS ASK ABOUT FAVRE BEING THE SECOND MOST HIT QB IN THE LEAGUE? WHY DONT THEY ASK ABOUT FIXING THE PROTECTION BY TRYING SOMETHING NEW?

    I DONT WANT TO HEAR THE WHOLE INTERVIEW BE ABOUT INJURIES. YOU CAN ASK THAT ON FRIDAY! THESE REPORTERS ARE JUST AS COMPLACENT AS THE HEAD COACH IS AND THAT IS WHY THIS TEAM IS LOSING PEOPLE!!!

    Has Hutch or Herrara ever played Tackle? Has Mckinnie or Loadholt ever played Guard? We need to shake this O-line up. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE TO HAVE A HALL OF FAME QB THAT IS BEING HIT THE 2ND MOST IN THE LEAGUE!

    I’m ready to try our backup DTs for OTs! We can’t keep playing this way! And who is the receiver coach by the way? Don’t you ever show them what they are doing wrong? Favre can’t do the coaching, play calling and play the game as well. YOU COACHES ARE FAILING MISERABLY!

    AND HOW MANY ATTEMPTS DID I SEE OUR PLAYERS TRY AND STRIP THE BALL??? YOU ARE PLAYING BACK TO BACK GAMES AGAINST TEAMS THAT STEAL THE BALL FROM YOUR HANDS AND I WANT TO KNOW WHY OUR GUYS ARE NOT DOING THE SAME???

    TERRIBLE, MISERABLE COACHING FROM ALL THE COACHES!!! THAT’S WHY!!!

  5. By Bruce on Nov 15, 2010 | Reply

    YOU RECEIVERS NEED TO CHANGE YOUR D A M N SHOES IF YOU ARE SLIPPING ON LOOSE GRASS!!! AND YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE DEFENDERS AS WELL. IT’S A TWO WAY STREET BETWEEN A PASS BEING THROWN IN THE BEST PLACE AND YOU BEING IN THE BEST PLACE TO CATCH IT!

    MCKINNIE, WHY DON’T YOU JUST TELL THE COACH YOU WOULD BE BETTER AT GUARD POSITION BECAUSE I SURE THE H E L L THINK YOU WOULD BE!

    FAVRE, TELL THESE GUYS THAT THIS TEAM HAS THE TALENT TO WIN ALL THE GAMES AND THAT THEY NEED TO PLAY HARDER AND THAT THESE FEW YEARS OF THEIR LIVES ARE GOING TO BE GONE FAST SO THEY SHOULD PLAY THEIR A S S OFF SO THEY CAN LOOK BACK AND BE PROUD OF WHAT THEY DID AND THEIR KIDS AND GRANDKIDS CAN BE PROUD TOO!

    IT WAS ONE OF THE MORE CANDID INTERVIEWS THAT CHILI DOG HAS GIVEN; AND YES BRAD, THE WHOLE TEAM IS UNDERPERFORMING, IN VIRTUALLY EVERY FACET OF THE GAME; AND YOU’RE JUST NOW GETTING A FRIGGIN CLUE?, AT MIDSEASON, WHEN THE TEAM IS A TRAINWRECK; GREAT COACHING, YOU COULDN’T LEAD MY DOG DOWN THE STEET ON A WALK..

    Ziggy announced that Chilly is safe. I’m sure it’s because chilly still has 3 1/2 years left on his contract and it would cost $9million to let him stay home and then Ziggy would still have to pay for a replacement coach. Face it, we are stuck with Klink for 3 more years. The good part is we will get many first round drafts over that time, worst part is Chilly will be in charge of most of those draft picks.

    THe season is lost. I can’t belive I am saying this but its time to see what Tavarius can do. A lot of decisions need to be made on the off-season starting with what we have at the QB position. Favre has to think about the team and let them figure out next season.

    Oh and Childress has to go. This year has been a disaster but even last year his coaching was average at best.

    Welcome to the “rebuilding” process Vikes fans.

    Watch these video clips– both on the Vikings– first one is short, the second one gets to the real meat of our problems. WATCH IT– then tell me the negativity does not affect our wins and losses– I DARE YOU. WATCH the second one– like I said all season, all this negativity gets inside your mind. Whether it is the latest neuroscience which proves the mind physically changes with activities and thoughts to the wisdom from thousands of years ago– the consensus of the ages is that your thinking affects your life– and your thinking is affected by what you repeatedly hear. WATCH IT– football players agreeing with what I have told you. COME ON< I DARE YOU.

    The Bears had some explosive plays (special teams) and did everything they needed to win at home. I hope the Vikings can recapture what they did last year against Green Bay vs their loss earlier this year.

    We are not correcting the problem if Chilly is still HC.

    What is the point of making corrections now that our playoff hopes are basically down the sh!tter…….

    BTW INSANE-

    This clip proves nothing about your claim that fans expressing themselves appropriately to the situation at hand has in any way effected this team…………
    Quite the contrary, the fans are not controlling their responses, the tema, lackj of professionalism and play has PROMPTED THE FAN RESPONSES
    This is perhaps why I vehemently disagree with you. Your argument is like saying the employees are complaining, they have no right to complain about a badly run business, so they had better just think positively for things to change……
    This position is so far from common sense that it is amazing to me that you must have no commonse sense in order to even suggest that the fans are responsible for this teams horrible play. Insane, you are not even positioning a concise argument for your vaguely familiar mindless drivel…….you had better go back to school………it is clear you missed out on some important elements of an education

    I hope nobody is blaming Brett for this loss. He did his best with very limited talent on the receiving end. Play calling is terrible and overall coaching is terrible. A team with this kind of talent should not go with this many losses. Let’s face the plain fact and apparently the owners can’t or refuse to see it. There is no coaching leadership on this team. No body believes in Childress. A team cannot perform consistently without believing in their coach. For a short period, like in Arizona, a team can muster their own will and get caught up in the moment and do well for themselves. But to play consistently good, you’ve got to have a head coach that the players believe in. No matter what they are saying publicly, you already know that all the key players, Favre, Peterson, Hutchinson, Pat and Kevin, the linebackers and Winfield, they all do NOT believe in Childress. The owners should face reality and call it like it is and determine that the SEASON IS OVER for the Vikings, and fire the uninspiring and weak coaching that sends a message that the organization will not tolerate losses, period. Just look at the Cowboys.

    I DON’T THINK ANYONE WOULD ARGUE THERE IS A BUTT LOAD OF PARITY IN THE LEAGUE, NOT A BAD THING IN AND OF ITSELF, BUT TRUTH BE TOLD, IF THE VIKES EVEN PLAYED JUST DECENT BALL, THEY’D BE IN THE THICK OF THE RACE WITH THE BEARS AND PACK; AS I SAID BEFORE THEY HAVE GOTTEN IN THEIR OWN WAY MORE THAN THEY’VE BEEN STOPPED BY THE OPPOSITION. IT’S A COMBINATION OF POOR COACHING AND PLAYER PERSONNEL NOT PERFORMING UP TO EXPECTATIONS-ALL YEAR-BY AND LARGE THIS IS THE SAME CORE GROUP AS LAST YEAR; AND SAVE FOR INJURIES, WHICH OF COURSE EVERY TEAM ENCOUNTERS, THE OVERALL MINDSET AND TEAM CULTURE HAS BEEN CHANGED FOR THE WORSE.

    I love those Ryan brothers. Why can’t we have a coach like Rex or Rob? I’m telling all of you Viking fans that PREPARATION, ATTITUDE, HARD WORK AND CONFIDENCE IS 80% RESPONSIBLE FOR WINNING GAMES! NOW GUESS WHOSE JOB IT IS TO MAKE SURE THE PLAYERS DO THAT AND HAVE THAT?

    “We still have a lot of football left” OH REALLY BRAD? 7 GAMES WILL BE OVER BEFORE YOU KNOW IT! WE ARE PAST THE HALF WAY POINT AND YOU GIVING US YOUR “we still have a lot of football left” ISN’T FOOLING ANYONE!

    AND HOW MUCH YOU WANT TO BET YOU GET FIRED AT THE END OF THE SEASON IF YOU DON’T AT LEAST MANAGE A WILD CARD SPOT?

    SO IF I WAS YOU BRAD, I WOULD MAKE SOME SERIOUS CHANGES TO FIX THINGS.

    1) FIX THE O-LINE, SWAP OUT SOME PEOPLE
    2) TEACH AP TO PASS BLOCK BETTER LIKE TAYLOR DID
    3) GET ON FRAZIER’S A S S AND TELL HIM TO GET THIS DEFENSE CLICKING
    4) HAVE THE DEFENSE LEARN HOW STRIP THE BALL & CREATE TURNOVERS
    5) RENT A BANQUET HALL WEDNESSDAY NIGHT, TREAT THE WHOLE TEAM TO DINNER AND ASK THEM ALL WHAT THEY THINK WILL GET THIS TEAM ON THE RIGHT TRACK, WRITE DOWN ALL THE PLAUSIBLE SUGGESTIONS & THEN JUST DO IT!

    We have not. We hanot done anythi ng well, other than coming from behind to beat a lowly AZ team……
    Early in the pre-season, I saw nothing of last year’s tream and said so.I was criticised for not being realistic about our D…..well, look at our D now……..THEY ARE NOT THE TEAMMOF LAST YEAR. PERIOD.

    I’ve been trying quietly all year long to look for something positive to post here as I do not like personally attack our beloved Vikes. But this year, there is just nothing positive to talk about! Only thing I can come up with is that Brett never ever gives up no matter what. To all you a$$hol3s that blame this season’s utter failure on Brett, I have no idea what games you’ve been watching. The blame belongs on everyone on all 3 sides of the ball. And coaches.. if you actually still call yourselves that.. did you all decide to follow Chiily’s lead on how to be failures? The one thing that could possibly put some small spark into these guys is to fire Chilly, but will we? Apparently not. Maybe the old warrior still has some more magic left in him, but how will we ever know if we have no one to throw to??? Cmon man cut your losses and fire him for the sake of whatever shred is left of Purple Pride. Nova, (I’m from Truro btw) Rocksalt, Old School, FireChildress, Soldier, and anyone I have missed, I agree with you all, as I have all year. I was trying to stay positive, but now it’s just hard. Though there is one thing that I am 100% positive about… Chilly needs to go! And Vikings.. do it for Brett if for no other reason, he gives you everything he has and then some and doesn’t deserve this. SKOL VIKES!

    Dont know where to start.I can not keep silent anymore.I have been a die hard viking fan for 48 years .We have had one of the best coaches ever in bud grant,hard act to follow and we never have yet.All these great teams we have had since with all these pro bowlers that a 4 year old could have coached and still no championship.I have seen new owners countless coaches come and go and it seems they dont have the heart that us die hards have.This years team is in total disaray.Can we snap out of it.We do not have great back-ups we need all our starters in the game.No wide receivers in the chicago game our defense looked like they did not care about the game and the tv announcer said it looked like the vikings where moving in slow motion compared to the bears.Remember back in the ditka days and Im sure even today the bears would make sure the field was wet or let it get soaked on purpose to slow turf or speed teams down.I know I have lived in the chicago area all my life.To many stories about what players are saying about our coach who by the way since day one to me has always avoided the main questions about a loss.Like dennis green who had so many good assistant coachs and pro bowl players we where blinded on how bad of coach he was.And yet here we go the clock keeps ticking the years keep flying bye and still no sign of a championship in site.Another new owner another new coach another promiss another year.We need every body on the same page we need to play with more intensity and hope we start getting our key players back we are not out of it yet the bears will falter and the pack will to, they need alot of breaks as do we but we all know we have a better team when we are clicking on all cylinders.And yes get rid of all negativity it does not belong in our locker room all bad things that have happened are behind us why linger in it and dwell on it we cant change it, move forward in a solid possitive manner and see what happens but move forward with emotion and intensity and smart play we can change our future not our past.

    If ziggy was going to fire childress he would have after the Moss incident. There is no point now as we are one game away from being out of the playoffs. He saves a lot of money by not having to hire another coach or increase the pay of an assistan to be the head coach. He can really write off chilly’s contract just like McComes did with Green, but there really isn’t a good reason too now. I agree with firing childress, but I just can’t see it happening until season is done. At that point Childress, Farve, and others will be gone. Bring a new head coach at that time to rebuild a younger team.

    Fire Childress: Arrogance has really hurt this team. It is arrogance to go against draft reports on college players. Okay, take a chance on one. This past years draft was ridiculuous. Spielman was saying with each pick how the Vikes were going to change the position these guys played in college. Wasn’t the linebacker from Ruttgers going to be our fullback? Webb was going to be our wideout? An offensive tackle whose report from Wake Forrest stated, has suspect footwork, doesn’t pick up the blitz well but is an exceptional run blocker. Oh, he was academicly ineligible once or twice, so you know he was going to be a “quick study.” This is arrogance to think they know so much more than 31 other teams. That was the downfall of the Cowboys in the late 70’s. After having success Tex Schram thought he knew so much more than the other teams and was practicly drafting kangaroo ropers.

    Michael Vick will be the long-term quarterback for Philly. Possibly Kevin Kolb will be expendable. I think the next Viking coach has to be someone who sees the potential to work with either T-Jack or Webb and develop them. I thought T-Jack maybe ran too much at times, and that Chilly wanted him to be more of a pocket passer. Possibly the next coach will balance T-Jacks athleticism with more patience in the pocket. I’m not as warm on the idea of Vick. Our two backups to date haven’t shown any signs of being less than quality people. Michael Vick will always be known as a dog fighting king pin in my book. I rather watch Chilly coach out his entire contract than see Vick under center in Viking purple.

    Stadium: A lot of people are still worried about the economy. It is tough on many of our neighbors here in the upper midwest. These blogs, the long running sell-outs at the dome. The amount of purple jerseys being worn around the 5 state area is testament that people love this team. The Wilf’s I feel are aware of that, if their is a way to mix private and some public funds maybe it could happen. Regardless of how bad this season has been, I know Brett Favre did his part to keep the faith in purple and a new stadium for future Vikes. Let’s push our public officials to consider more funding options and possibly something could get done.

    The chances of Vikes moving to LA are rising with every loss. I still hope they can find a way to win (especially against Green Bay if no other game) but I did hear it announce on ESPN that LA is moving forward with construction of an NFL stadium and they aren’t going to do that if they don’t already have a team in the bag — the question is which team, which team will be easiest to justify moving after this year?

    LA is a huge T.V. market, but their fan base has never been die hard loyal. More people show up to watch Snoop Dog’s pee wee team than watched the Raiders in their Super Bowl years. The league would want to put a team there, but some of these owners might be less than thrilled with the long-term of that move. Players in LA may tend to negotiate harder for more money due to cost of living and the boring winters.

    What I keep noticing in these games is that the defending safeties keep looking back at the quarterback to see where and when he is going to throw the ball and trying to run forward while looking back.Meanwhile the receiver is putting distance between them and making the catch. When the catch is made our defenders are 5 to 10 yards away from the play. They need to stick close to the receiver,watch him, and watch HIS reaction to the ball coming and react accordingly.

To the rest of the realistic fans, and you know how you are….this season is for all purposes done. Tjack is not the answer because our receivers are sitting on the sidelines watching the QB run for his life. Vick will not be accepted in the midwest because of the dog incident. I know I would not welcome him, as I think he should be donating his salary(all of it) to the various animal rescue organizations. This season for some reason has been all about testing the fan resolve. Zygi will not get the NFL(they have to approve moves) to relocate the club, he is just alienating the fan base. Now it is just a countdown to the start of Spring Training for the TWINS!! Never thought I could type this, but I hope the dome in a sea of GREEN and the score is the biggest embarrassment in our history. In this case, I want tjack to get the game so he can be pounded instead of Brett!! SKOL to all fans!!!!!!

    you’re probably going to get your rear end handed to you.

    Q: Do you feel like players were not prepared for playing outside?

    A: We always talk about cleats and we talk about spikes. I saw a couple guys had a little bit longer stud on their shoe. That’s an individual thing. That’s not a mandated thing. That’s typically why you go out before the pregame warm-up to see what’s going to hold. There is a pregame warm-up in case maybe you miss identify what cleats you should have on. I know that’s a municipal field. I know the Bears didn’t have anything to do with it. I was surprised to see it that green, that late in November. That’s an individual preference and usually guys have shoes on the sideline that they can go to if they feel like it’s a factor.

    You know, hindsight is 20/20 but I knew that chasing after Favre at the beginning of this season was going to end up backfiring…and it has. I was skeptical last year but admit that I too fell into the Favre trap after that San Fran miracle. Don’t get me wrong he’s a legend, but I feel like Tavaris Jackson never received a fair shake. He has the talent to be special, but with that coaching staff is it any surprise that he hasn’t been able to tap into it. They’d run rollout after rollout with him in there becoming so predictable that even some with his mobility became one dimentional. These TV analysts like Trent Dilfer (who by the way isn’t Sh!t and only won thanks to Ray Lewis and that D) ripped Tavaris to the point where the Vikings must’ve felt compelled to do something. I know this sounds like I’m related to Jackson but I truly think he could be a diamond in the rough.

    And if AP had converted JAC? then chilly would b a genius right? Pretty sure chilly thought ap would convert but he didn’t. Besides, the passing game wasn’t working too well. It’s this whole team, not just the coaching staff. This team is playing at a very low level right now, both the offense and the defense. Our o-line cant block or protect. Our receivers can’t run routes or catch(excluding harvin) Our d-line cannot apply any pressure or get sacks. Our secondary is horrible. They cannot cover or tackle. If not for our d-line in the past years, we would’ve gave up many more points and maybe even lost more games. Its not just the coaching staff. They whole team is playing poorly and the coaches need to turn that around. Chilly is obviously incapable of doing that. So hate to say it, but this season is essentially over.

    THEREFORE, BENCH FAVRE, START TARVARIS! T-Jack won’t turn the ball over as much and we’ll start winning games.

    I’m new to this forum and have alot to vent about. It’s frustrating as a fan to see teams that don’t have half the talent your team has, being more successful. The harsh reality of the league is that MOST players just will not give their ALL for coaches that they don’t respect i.e Wade Phillips. Garrett comes in and they destroy a Giant team that analysts were pickin for the super bowl…Chilly has lost this team. Maybe he can learn from his F’ups here and be better on another squad but this dude has to go…before he waives another hall of famer.

    As bad as Favre has been, for some reason the players seem to really like him. He should call a players only meeting and plead with them to give all they got the rest of the way, attempt to win out and see what happens…”Do it for me, do it for yourselves, do it for our FANS”!

  341. By Rick James on Nov 16, 2010 | Reply

    There wont be any major moves made until the Vikes are mathematically out. Favre is not the problem. He is not the same as he was last year but teams are teeing off on him at will. I think alot of blame can be placed on Sidney Rice. He was advised to get the surgery in the offseason and declined. Now i know that Sid Rice would not have single handedly gotten us some wins, but i am also not saying he wouldnt have. Think about the redzone turnovers. Favre is trying to fit the ball into such a small space because he doesnt have the 6’4 presence there to go up and get the ball. Maybe if he does Sid catches 2 or 3 of those. Maybe that is the difference in a game or 2. 2 wins would put us at 5-4 heading into this week and that is despite the defensive whoes.

    @ VikesALLDAY,
    The players don’t like Favre, but they can’t say it in public because the owner is paying Favre over 16 million this year.

    Examples of why most of the players HATE Favre:
    * Rice not interested in playing against the Bears.
    * Berrian mysteriously was a last minute no go against the Bears.
    * Most of the entire team not playing well and with little effort now.

    Seriously if I were an offensive lineup, I know I would block a lot better if T-Jack was the QB. Why try so hard for a 41 year old QB that won’t show up for training camp. Then won’t take himself out of the game when he’s injured and continues to be a statue in the pocket, fumble and throw interceptions. Favre’s not interested in winning. He’s only interested in starting and extending this streak. If he was interested in winning, he would sit his ass on the bench.

    AND HOW MANY ATTEMPTS DID I SEE OUR PLAYERS TRY AND STRIP THE BALL??? YOU ARE PLAYING BACK TO BACK GAMES AGAINST TEAMS THAT STEAL THE BALL FROM YOUR HANDS AND I WANT TO KNOW WHY OUR GUYS ARE NOT DOING THE SAME???

    No matter how much the players or the fans dislike Childress he is still the head coach. The players still have to perform at high level, and some are not and have not been during the season.They should at least be playing for themselves . The effort sucks. It shows with the missed tackles, execution etc. Just look at the Bears. EX. The vikes punter putting the ball where it has to be next to the sideline and so many missed EASY tackles. The pass defense was soft and wide open in the middle. When you blitz you have to get pressure on the Q.B. As for me I to can’t stand Childress. Until something is done though the players still have to give the effort on the field. They are being paid millions of dollars to play a game. Hopefully they will at least finish out the season with a respectable record.

    BB doesn’t care cause he’s got a $5.5 million contract, Rice’s contract is up and he’s (probably) already hoping to move to a different team so he wants to stay safe on the sidelines. Percy is still putting effort in but he’s young so he’ll just laugh with the others — Percy will have no problem finding a new team later.

    What a disgrace this has turned into to. Enough is a enough!

    As much as I would like to see Chilly gone at this point, as a fan, I have to come to grips with the fact that he is our coach, like it or not. You don’t give up on your Country because of who your President is, nor should you give up on a team because of who the coach is. Believe me, I have done my fair share of venting, and honestly this blog helps.

    I’ve had quite a gut check after speaking with my old man the other day (a fan of 40+ years). I look at the Saints fans of past, the Browns, the Raiders, Detroit, the Rams,…. some of the best fans in the NFL, case in point: you hang in there as a fan of the game and support your team. The reality is, that we may not see the Vikings in Minnesota after this year.

    To the players: Last time I checked you don’t play for your coach. You play for your teammates, your name sake, your family, your friends and mentors, you play cause you have the heart, you play for pride, and you play for your paycheck. The coach is there to make sure you make the plays not make em for you. Let’s start playing. Let’s make the original Purple People eaters proud.

    One thing I’ll give Detroit is that they always play with pride – no question on effort, I just want to see some heart. I don’t care about the wins anymore.

    If not, give me 10M/yr I’ll through on a jersey and I’ll get out there and bust my ass to the end, I don’t care if the coach was Little Leo Lewis. 200% guaranteed! Let’s go Vikes!

Talk trash about our own team until a Packer fan says a smart azz comment and then start talking playoffs while puffing your chest like you’ve accomplished something nthis year.

    Settle down Packer fan, don’t get all excited that your team might have a chance to be at the top of the NFC north with the Vikings gone– the Vikings are staying right here in MN and will be your nemesis forever– in fact, the Packers are about to fall apart. Vikings ship is about to set sail and Vikings will enjoy some cheese on Sunday– Rodgers is going to be pathetic, running around for his life. Favre will have the game of his life as will Sidney Rice and Adrian Peterson– this is going to be the game where the whole season’s frustration will vent and, mark my words, the Vikings will easily win this one. No question. As the Menswearhouse president likes to say– You are NOT going to like it Packerfan, I guarantee it.

We are so excited to see a win against the Packers– even if we never win again this season, it would be close to winning the Superbowl to see the Packers whining and running around in disarray—– a blowout by the Queens— won’t that be embarrassing? Division leaders (for now) and you are whipped by the queens– ha ha ha— keep calling us names– just a reflection of your inner fears that, yes, the Vikings will dominate, demolish, and DESTROY the Packers, maybe knocking Rodgers out of the game and a few to come– hee hee hee.

    And even if you do win Sunday.. your out of the playoffs for sure my friend. But as some of your fellow fans have pointed out, the pack is playing very well right now with a better QB than the Bears who torched your defense last Sunday…. The vikings have lost all faith in their coaching staff and just don’t have it this year. Brett at his own admission is not coming back next year and then are you relying on Travaris for the future? YOu have AP who is outstanding but you need a good QB to have a championship team. Rodgers will lead the pack to a superbowl for sure in his career. Probably not his year as the pack have so many season ending injuries.. but our future is secure. And our team will never leave Green Bay either as the fans own it.

    I read your first blog and skipped down to here. You are right, negativity gets to a person.

    The Vikings may, in fact, finish with a 4-12 record or something of that nature. Then they will purge the team of the negative attitudes, and add some good ones.

    Let’s face it, this team is getting old. Both lines have more than one guy over 30. In the NFL, 30 is old. That’s probably the best way to explain what happened to the Vikings.

    You can’t really say getting Favre late in the 2009 preseason was all that bad a decision. The Vikings had not yet signed him. But to let him go until late in the preseason this year set a bad tone for the 2010 season. Joe Namath swam in the pool his first year with the LA Rams (yes, LA dear). That didn’t work out very well either.

    The Vikings had several people miss significant amounts of Preseason: Harvin, and Peterson were the most prominent. I think there were more.

    It’s been said that when a team loses a very close game like the Vikings did to the Saints in the NFC Championship game last year, that it’s very hard to bounce back.

    The Vikings should have been eager to return to camp, not reluctant. It makes you wonder “How good was that preseason camp, and what the heck did we do during that time?” Brad Childress, to his credit, seemed very perplexed with what was going on. He was not the one who went down and grabbed Favre from Mississippi. Clearly that was a team choice. He probably should have vetoed it. But after the season Favre had in 2009, who could really blame him for hiring the Hall of Famer!

    The most upset I’ve ever seen Brad Childress was during the Preseason camp. To his credit, he did not let on to all the negativity of his players. I could easily rip individual players on the Vikings for their pre-season activities. I’m not going to do that. I do know what it’s like to have people let the team down in the preseason. There is little you can do as a coach. That may be why the Wilf’s are giving Brad Childress another chance. He is a good coach!!!

    Watching the Vikings is like watching a sports bloopers show. Am I right or am I right.

    I want to explain some of the 4th and 1’s where the Vikings went for it. In hindsight, all of them were bad decisions. At the time Childress was probably trying to light a spark under his team. Since we were not moving the ball all that well anyway, why not try it? The other option is to try quick kicks on third down, and nobody does that anymore!

    I blame this season on three things:

    1. Preseason Camp (Too many days missed by several key players)
    2. The close NFC championship game, we didn’t recover from.
    3. Injuries (We had some key ones to Favre, Rice, Sullivan, Winfield, etc)

    You can attribute what has happened to the Vikings to INJURIES. RICE, FAVRE, SULLIVAN, HARVIN, WINFIELD, SHIANCOE, COOK, BERRIAN, and who did I miss?

  563. By Frederick Jones on Nov 17, 2010 | Reply

    When all is said and done, most people will attribute the Vikings sub-par record to the many INJURIES, suffered by the team.

    My prediction for the Vikings this season: 7-9 (4-3 down the stretch)–This would be a good finish, and set things up well for next season.

    Injuries. I have never seen a Vikings season with so many injuries to key players. Yes, I will admit to having watched Fran Tarkenton play for the Vikings.

  573. By Frederick Jones on Nov 17, 2010 | Reply

    Can a coach prevent injuries? At the pro level, he should not have to take on that role. They have better medical people than probably anywhere else in the world, in my opinion. No, this is probably not the coach’s fault.

    Chilly needs to modify the offense to protect Favre Roll him out or something, and the players need to start showing some pride and not just showing up to collect their paychecks

    To Mike W. If you think this team has played anything but gutless, half a$$ed football this season you are not being honest. A handful have given 100%! That includes players and coaches.
