Klink is 12th on the poll behind two coaches with losing records, that should tell you something about his coaching abilities. And being a liar is not a good trait to have as a man! Look at the past 3 yrs what he has said and what he has done! Case closed! Just get him off the sideline!

You may or may not be right about coaching abilities; I don't think he is a good coach,
but others may. I do know, though, you are right about one thing; he is a liar from top
to bottom. And he doesn't care; he really doesn't believe the press or fans mean anything anyway, so it doesn't matter if he is honest or not. If Brad Childress told
me the sun sets in the west, I would call the nearest observatory to see if the earth
hadn't turned on its axis, because I certainly wouldn't believe Childress.

Brad Childress cares about Brad Childress, and the players know it. They go along with
him because Wilf goes along with him; those who don't, leave the team in a hurry. Just
ask Bobby Wade.

I love how you back your opinions up with facts; or do you consider
insults to be facts?

I may or may not be the "stupidest" (is that even a word?) person

If Klink finally gets us a franchise QB next year, I'll get off his case. Lets face it: He rented Favre for a year, maybe 2. I hope like hell that we can win the super bowl this year, but for in the future, I hope Klink can figure out something for our QB of the future. Like maybe drafting Tim Tebow, or trading for a young, GOOD veteran.

He had a chance at Drew Brees and Cutler and passed. The Bear Packers and maybe even the Lions are set at QB for a good numbers of years. We are set until next year or the next hit. I give him and Zygi credit for bringing in talent, but I thnk the TUNA or Martz would have this offense doing more and would have addressed the QB position. It is not that it is great play calling or great players, but it is very good players and great players making so so play and play calling special. If he wins the big one, then he gets an extension no matter how bad the offensive calling. --- One play done 4 times a game weould result in 3 TD's . Hand off to AP run right stop run back, pitch back to BF and BF goes long. If TJ or SAGE turn out to be decent QB's in the next year or two I'll admit my error.

No, what should tell you something is that Childress has a better rating from people outside of Minnesota than from you whiny locals who insist on finding that 'scab' to pick.

Besides, I've read that poll. Most of the coaches ahead of Childress are in larger markets; if they're winning, there are more local fans to boost that coach's rating.

In the end, all that matters is winning. And Childress is 5-0.

Suck on that.

Another example of a very shortsighted Viking fan posting rubbish. If he would have went after Brees or Cutler we probably wouldn't have had the draft picks that we did or the money to get a player like Jared Allen. If he would have got Cutler we would have not gotten Percy Harvin and our recieving core would be much weaker for it. It would be the same situation the Bears now find themselves in with a pretty good quarterback and no receivers to catch his passes. Plus, Cutler's a pussy and I don't think he'll turn out that great for Chicago.
How can so-called Viking fans be so incredibly stupid? Do you really think it's the coaches fault that there just aren't that many great QB's out there available for him to get. Think of the draft choices we had people. I wouldn't trade AP for a quarterback, and the other years we didn't have a shot at any QB of quality. We would have had to give up some great defensive and offensive picks to try and swing a quarterback and that is risky. Could you imagine how much crap you would have given him if he traded up to get Jamarcus Russell or Vince Young?
I don't know what you guys expect the man to do, just magically create an all star QB out of thin air or something?
Idiots, the whole lot of you.
nO, YOU FAIL TO SEE THEIR POINTS AND TO AN EXTENT i AGREE. tO WIN IN the NFL you need a quality trigger man plain and simple, occasionally you get a fluke team with a great D but all in all you need a QB. Until BF Chilly has not made an attempt to get a even decent one, going with journeyman or career backups or men way past their prime. He has improved the team year to year and certainly noone should be complaining about this year yet. I have a problem with his staff's vanilla and predictable play callin in the past but he has opened it up enough this year to satisfy me.

Chilly is well organized and a has a keen eye for talent. I am paticularly happy th Viking's discipline. This year they aren't beating themselves with silly penalties. Halftime adjustments have improved and special teams have been turned from a negative to a positive. He deserves credit for improving the team overall.

Despite his inconsistencies and mishandling of players at times he appears to have the general support of the players. Winning heals a lot of hurts. Can he inspire his players to go to a new level, has he captured their hearts? Those questions remain unanswered.

He acted purely in his own self interest in his handling of T-Jack and may have ruined the young QB's chances to be a good quarterback. Although their are certainly questions about T-jack's leadership ability and dedication to the work needed to be done in order to excell.

His sideline coaching and clock management continue to be sore spots. How the Vikings respond the next three games will shed light on whether Chilly has what it takes to be a championship coach. He deserves a chance. Lets hope he doesn't fumble.

Been supporting Childress ever since Zigi hired him. Some people have no patience. All of this takes time. By the time Brett wins two superbowls, TJ and Sage will have enough experience to step in.

I won't give credit for any personnel actions to Childress except his pursuit of Favre. The article stated what I always knew, Rick Spielmen is the main reason for the solid talent increases in the last couple years.

Where Childress really falls short is coaching decision during a game. When behind he fails to adapt. During crunch time with less than 4 minutes to play he takes over play calling and we have all scratched our heads at bonehead calls at the end of half/game. Who can forget the attempted halfback pass by Adrian Peterson. Way to use the best runner in the game. Have him try to throw. That's like asking Brett to take a snap from shotgun on 3 & 1 and try to pound it up the middile.

Plus, don't forget his decisions on when to throw or not throw the red flag. He doesn't have a good track record on challenges.

I don't want to be too critical of him Stub cause we are winning but yeah his use of red flags and his use of TO's in general still have not gotten much better, you find yourself yellin at the screen at times to call a effin T.O. 4 gawd's sake, LOL. But we 5-0, can't complain too much.
