Celebrate and enjoy now Viking nation ...... for soon you'll see that it wasn't all Childress ... much of your troubles came along with a certain self centered egotistical quarterback ...... I'm sure you won't buy that now, and that's ok .... I hope he stays there forever .... One day maybe you'll understand why Ted Thompson did what he did ....

Packer Punks always posting negative comments about the Vikings on Minnesota websites just show what sorry human beings you are.Besides if it was not for Lord Farve bringing your beloved packers to the two Super Bowls (1-1) you would be mired in Lynn Dickey brand of football.Erin Rodgers will never be anything but another Tony Romo.Both great stats and regular seasons, but be responsible for personally ending any chance their team has for a playoff win.(see Rodgers kicking the ball into Dansby"s arms instead of letting it fall harmless to the turf.SKOAL! GOOD LUCK COACH FRAIZER and the Vikings!

Childress's statement about leaving the team in better shape than it was in when he took it over comes across as a desperate attempt to make himself look like he got better results than he actually got.

It wasn't like Childress took over a 3-13 or 4-12 team when he got here. Tice was fired after a 9-7 season in which the team failed to make the playoffs. In fact, Childress tallied as many winning seasons (2) as Tice, more sub-.500 seasons than Tice (2-1).

There is no question that the talent on this roster now is better than it was when Childress took over in 2006. However, the only season this talent really showed it's potential was 2009. It's about getting results.

The Vikings need a head coach who can walk the line between being too much of a players coach (Tice) and too much of a stubborn hardass (Childress). Bottom line is this: a good head coach has his team ready to play well, and his team responds the vast majority of the time. Let's hope Frazier gets it right.

You forgot to mention the thousand other day-to-day things that occurred throughout his tenure -- such as terrible game-planning, play-calling, time-management, player-motivation, player-utilization, etc. -- that showed Chilly for what he truly was: a lousy coach.

I recommend intense therapy. It's obvious that the saying "Hell hath no fury like a Packers fan spurned by Favre" applies to you and all your foul cheese-smelling friends. Try to get over it someday.
