I wasn't be sarcastic folkes....I mean it ...cut him!!! You see his casual comment? I paraphrase..."duhh..I try to do what coach says but sometimes my foot don't do what my brain tells it's not so easy punting sometimes...duhhh...I try to do better next time...duhh." Give me a break...dude gave attitude in meeting...cut him only because he is not worth the money we are paying....yeah i know Chilly is a moron...but can we trust this doofus in two weeks against Chicago?

I can't say I disagree with the rest of the Childress haters...Childress is not and will never be a Super Bowl caliber coach, in fact I will be surprised if the Vikes make the playoffs again under his leadership and play calling...we shall see!!

Childress has no clue or class. You never call out any employee in front of the other help much less in the media. What the commercial say? Gotta Go! He's Gotta Go!

Go get Bill Cwer now!!He will motivate very talented players. He is emotional and will put talented coaches in place. He is available and can be contacted without asking for his release from an NFL team.( Like the last debacle [Farve})
Do it before KC or Detroit does it.

Hey idiots; You were wishing for a Vikings loss? You are either closet Packer fans or complete morons. If you are a Vikings fan you always want them to win. The Chargers fired Marty Schott?? after going 14-2; the Vikings can do the same. Zigi; please wake up, the fan base thinks this is the most incompetent coach in the league. He is out coached and over matched every week. We win because of the talent on this team and despite the incompetence of this coach.

Childress is a wimp and he needs to go. At least Tice looked like a football coach. Vikes' fan since 1970, I'm almost in my 50's. It's time we got a title and that cannot be done with this coach.

The funniest part is seeing the lack of hate for Gus. He was on the throwing end of some lucky catches, but still threw about 15 really bad passes.
Face facts, ladies, this team was lucky to win the Saints game, but in the end a win is a win.

I agree with what everone is saying. I think the Vikings should start trying out new coaches right now. Remember he is the one that left our veteran high buck team in the hands of T-Jack. The guy is a moron and I think some of the veteran players know it. His play calling is horrible. When the announcers are telling us what play is coming, the other team know it too. Ziggi should have kept Tice.

Kluwe can practice and get it out of bounds. If you are paid that much money put it the attention to all the details and be the best punter, because Kluwe could be that man-----he has to own it.
Chili has his coaches to tune up and jack his own a** first. Get creative and swing AP into where those blitzers areas are and make them stay home.
Chili does not show top class in his thinking, and he admitted the same in an article in this paper-----so Chili think before you jump.
I don't hate Chili, but I think we get tired of OTJ faux pas.
Go Vikes you all had a great game effort wise and enjoy the reward, I am.

They'll all likely be more competent and qualified to coach then Childress...

Your question is, who do we get to replace him?
OK, how about a fence post, with a play card tacked to it, just for starters.
Not a bad least the fence post would have more personality...and we wouldn't get all of the dumb cliches during the pre/post game interviews.

Hey at least the decision to put gus ferotte in at qb is paying off thus far. A win is a win even if its an ugly one. The Vikings offense looked absolutely awful against the saints and also today against the lions. If the offense can get it going, they can be a force to be reckoned with in a tough nfc north. As far as the Chris Kluwe situation in New Orleans, I do think that you treat the situation like kicking to Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears. YOU JUST DON'T DO IT!

Does Childress call the plays to the offense or does his offensive coordinater do it? I do think everyone is right, he does need to go. Coach Cowher would be perfect in Minnesota but the offense is what the problem is so far and yes Childress is to blame because he changed the offense. If the Vikes can make the playoffs even if they go 9 and 7 and lose in the first round. Childress keeps his job! Trade talks end in week 6. they need to get it going. I think in the weeks to come, A STATEMENT GAME is in the works! MARK MY WORDS!

I know there are a lot of expectations of certain NFL teams out there. The Vikings are one of those teams who have not rebounded since Randy Moss's rookie year when they went 15-1, made it to the NFC championship game, only to lose it in OT to the Atlanta Falcons. Who was the coach to get them there again? Hmmmmm...... Can you say Denny Green.

Well, I see most of you guys agree that Childress really needs to go and the sooner the better! It's a good thing our boy Red Foreman wasn't on the most recent O.J. jury in Vegas! Cause it appears he's willing to give idiots 2nd and 3rd chances.

C'mon, isn't evident the Vikings are at a disadvantage every week in the coaching dep't.? Like someone mentioned earlier, our announcers know before the snap what play we're about to run on offense. WE ARE TOO PREDICTABLE!!! PERIOD! The same formations, that same delayed pass to the flat with A.D. about to get nailed. Every game, it looks like I'm watching the Wisconsin Badgers offense wearing Vikings uniforms.

In the meantime, please replace Ryan(soon to be short-order)Cook before he blows another assigment and gets someone hurt! Couldn't Hicks replace Cooked? If we lose badly to the Bears next week, Ziggy needs to make a hard decision on whether he wants a winner for a coach or someone who is clearly not getting it done after 3 seasons with talented players!!!
