Zigi Mercifully ends Childress’s tenure with Vikings

In the end, it was really, really, very sad. Brad Childress isn’t a bad guy. He believes in a strong work and moral ethic and brought this with him to Minnesota. What he struggles with, is interaction with others. He’s abrasive, stubborn and doesn’t adapt quickly to situations. He is also a little too sensitive […]

Moss Annoyed That His Help Became Public Conversation

Earlier this week, both Brad Childress and Visanthe Shiancoe told reporters how Randy Moss helped the Vikings prepare for his former team. Apparently, Moss is not happy that his coach and teammate revealed this information to the press. Another serving of drama, anybody? Anybody?

Potentially On The Hot Seat, Childress Is Making No Friends

With hard times come frustration.   With frustration comes consequences. Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports mentioned in a column that people from within the Vikings organization were under the impression that a loss to Dallas would result in Childress also losing his job.  Judd Zulgad of Access Vikings disputes the report, saying that Childress was safe […]

Favre Botch 2010

Last year, I had to plant my foot squarely in my own mouth when I wrote a series of opinion pieces about how signing Favre was going to end up being a business decision that negatively affected this team on the field. It is beginning to look like my hack blogger prophecies are beginning to […]

Favre Sitting Out – Talk Continues

As I mentioned following Monday night’s loss to the Jets, Brett Favre’s tendinitis is one of a few legitimate reasons that the Vikings should be considering benching the old gunslinger. After sitting out of practice on Wednesday and being limited on Thursday, the chatter surrounding Favre’s status as the Vikings starting quarterback has not subsided.  […]

Favre To Bench Himself?

On Monday I suggested that the Vikings should bench Brett Favre based off of his poor performance, injury status, and off the field concerns. Apparently Favre himself might agree with one of those reasons to bench him. “You’re not going to make every throw but I would have made some of those throws,” said Favre on Wednesday. “From […]
