Vikings' Playbook...

Questions...Who has input besides Childress. is it Frazier? Bevell? Both? Bonzoo the clown? Or is the present Play Book a rehash of Bud Grant's era? Is the book also made up from watching game films of other successful teams? Maybe rubbing the magic lamp and watching a foxy Cheerleader pop out with a placard filled out with unfailing plays? Have her call secret play 38-24-36?

What is bevell's job anyways? Hold the wires for childress? It seems like he doesn't do anything. It's either childress calling the plays or farve. Why do we need bevell for other than to be the decoy just to fill a job position.
Bevell is playing the role Childress played in Philli. He was offensive coordinator, but never calld the plays. Andy Reid always did.

In order to truly improve the team: 1. Fire Childress and replace him with Frazier. 2. Trade for Vincent Jackson. 3. Hire a General Manager to handle personel, they blew it keeping McKinnie, and not resigning Chester Taylor, not to mention bringing in someone to replace Artis Hicks.

The Saints missed easy FG's and open recrs that last game should of been a blow out. I failed to see that spark in Favre's eyes or even a glimmer of it ...he had to be begged by the 3 wisemen to play if he continues to play as un inspired as he did last week how long before the three wisemen fly his butt home? Myself I think that fire left favre when he chucked that punt to end last season as he knew the GM and Coach in GB popped a bubbly and toasted " for once he didn't chuck the punt to end our season" with the revenge factor gone Favre wanted to retire and was begged into playing ...our Safetys are midgets and will get exposed hugely, our rec'rs are mediocre at best and our OL just seeps...not all can be fixed hope for 10-6 and a wildcard....just be prepared for the punt he will chuck to end it all please drafty a qb next yr and quit the McNabb talk he never was anyway

Just four keys to fixing the Vikings?

TFF.

Another year, another year of Viking delusions of Super Bowl grandeur.

Last year was the year for the Vikings to get it done. And in typical Viking fashion, they wet the bed.

Just like I told you they would.

Anyone who thinks they'll get that close again this year knows nothing of the Minnesota Vikings and their endless ability to be creative losers.

12 men in the huddle? LOL!

Maybe they need to take Childress on the loveboat so he quits psychoanylizing everything.

The 5th is having head coach who can see these areas of concern. I'm not sure he can.

Dump that muslim terrorist whatshisname, Osama bin Laden? Safety who couldn't catch grandma crossing the street with a walker. And geez, why do all the starting WRs have to be nee grows? I mean come on. Given that though, move Tarvarious to WR where he only has like one thing on his mind CATCH DA ROCK and he will probably flourish not like he has to multitask going through reads and picking apart the opposing D which is clearly too much for his brain.

The Vikings fans' emotions for Chilly run the gamut from seething hatred to mild dislike: nobody seems to like the guy. I try to ignore him because, hey, let's face it, you and I are not team owners, so we don't get to hire the coach. Do they still sell those "Chilly Kits" up there, you know, the ones that consist of a set of spectacles, false moustache, fake bald head wig and a Chinese menu to hold in front of your lips? Who marketed those anyway? I bet the guy who sold those did well financially. Let go of your Chilly hatred; you'll just give yourself indigestion. We're stuck with him, and we have to pray he does well. Skol Vikings.

I don't get all the Super Bowl hype for Green Bay this year.

Their biggest problems last year were offensive line and defensive backfield, and it doens't seem like they did much to improve those areas this year. If they lose to the Eagles today, all bets are off.
