And the purple-pants uniforms stink. The Vikes looked like one of the Fruit of the Loom guys!

Lose the white side-panels on the current jerseys and go back to real stripes on the sleeves!
Not a job saving game

Why do you say this win saved his job? If the lackluster play against a poor football team saves his job, obviously Wilf needs to take a refresher class in business management. The Vikings can't afford to give away any more games, and with Childress at the helm, that's bound to happen. If Wilf wants any chance of getting a stadium built, he needs to show the people of Minnesota he is serious about winning. Letting a social-malcontent coach with some glaring psychological disorders continue to divide the locker room is not going to gain the trust of the citizens of this state. Why wait until the season ends, he'll still be on your payroll for three more years at that time so what's a couple more months of him taking a check from you and not having a job... that's kind of like what he's doing now! Get rid of him and show those of us that are still on the fence about a new stadium that we can trust your judgement, because if you keep Childress on staff, you are conceding any chance of the Vikings making the playoffs, and also probably conceding your getting a new stadium... or maybe that is part of your plan so you can move the team. Show Minnesotans you can be trusted!

Why does Chilly pull Peterson out of the game when we need him on the field??? Stop pulling Peterson at the goal line! Fire Chilly!

...and talk that we should still fire childress. we won that game because favre performed well in the hurry up when he was making the calls at the line of scrimmage instead our 'offensive gurus'...our base offense was once again pathetic.

Wilf need to give Frazier the interim job before they give him the head coach position. He need to see if Frazier can actually coach. This is a perfect storm so to speak.

I hope nobody has the impression the players won this game for Childress. They won in for themselves.

1) The victory was for the players and by the players.
2) If it wasn't for a miracle comeback they would have lost.
3) The players can't stand the ego-maniac!
4) Fire Childish Childress now. He's no leader, he's a dictator! ;(

Childress talked about preparing the Vikings to play and putting them position to make plays. It was pretty clear that Favre was calling many, if not most/all, the plays at the end of the game when the team started getting productive. Prior to that, we had Chilly's game plan resulting in very few points. Childress has lost the players and the fans- and almost lost the game. Cowher or several other coaches who have already won super bowls would right this ship in a hurry. Having a hall of fame QB pull out a win at the end of the game shouldn't save the coach's job. If Wilf doesn't fire Childress it will be about money, and Wilf hasn't been cheap so far. Bye, bye, Chilly...

Childress got lucky, that's all. The first 55 minutes of today's game were a continuation of last week, uninspired, mistake-prone football. Then, as if a switch was thrown, they scored 17 points in the manner of a Super Bowl bound team. Childress would never admit it, but did Farve ignore the "system" and get the job done?

Childress still needs to be fired, but I would not be so quick to promote Frazier. His defense has no pass rush, no tackling skills, and too many holes in the secondary.

Unfortunately, it's all up to Wilf. Zygi has given Childress everything Brad has wanted and has not been successful. But, with today's win, Zygi's lame duck has appeased him a bit, so Childress' job is safe for the moment. I'll just continue to be disgruntled...

Childress is a bit aloof
with this win he's still a goof
the team, they need themselves a leader
not a guy who's thoughts so often teeter
I'd take Dungy,Ditka or Chucky
Id rather be good then just plain lucky
So keep the flag in your pocket Brad
when you throw it the results are always bad.
Stand in the unemployment line with other folks,
your jobs done, that ain't no joke.
Thanks for nothing, your promises crushed,
from this state Moss has been bussed.
It's Ok we will be fine
Greenbay can be the ones with Cheese and Whine.
The team will try their very best,
when you are gone the will not rest.
Good by you loser, you pompous ass
Self righteous clown without any class.

you suck tom powers, journalism it's worst. Why don't you report what the chilly/harvin scuffle was about? He was watching out for his player and wanted him to get an MRI. Exact quotes from Harvin.

How disappoining, you're such a media slut. Chily isn't going anywhere, Zygi doesn't make haste decisions, if anything it'd be done during the off season. Keep wishing.

I am fully supportive of Coach Childress. His players need to be more consistent.

This team has a diva, his name is Farve. 3 and 5 is where we are at after a victory over a team we were favored to take by 9 points. I don't know how good a business man Wilf is but he is a ==== poor team owner.
