Hey Jensen,
If you and your fellow beat writers had any sack what so ever... YOU'D BE THE ONES MANNING UP and calling for the head of the COACH! What do you see that the rest of us don’t? Oh that's rights your part of the Minnesota media... a bunch of soft... yes men... racists! If Denny GREEN had this much talent and was given carte Blanche with his teams like Chilly has...AND FAILED AS OFTEN AS CHILLY HAS… you guys would have been outside the dome with pitch forks and fire. With Chilly... you post some pathetic tid-bit column on how the coach told his guys “not to beat themselves”. Seriously? How is this on a newspapers’ website? This should be something that a reader posts as a comment. What the hell are you guys doing over there... Get your head out of your ass and call a spade a spade... Chilly is a failure... now do your job, document how he is a failure and write THAT.... this column is an embarrassment of your profession... seriously... you should be ashamed and so should the editorial staff for putting this anywhere other than the shred-it box!

Man up??? I hope Childress is watching Flacco from Baltimore, a first round draft pick out of Delaware.

I believe Zyg is trying to take the Vikes out of this market. Look how well that worked out for Cleveland, um, I mean Baltimore (4 - 0).

I think when they bring an expansion team here, let the owners hire the coaches, make the talent scouts a separate, publically owned company fully funded with player salary monies from the team.

Look how Public Ownership has worked for Green Bay.

Childress gave up. With 2 minutes to go and no timeouts - 4th and 13 at their own 18yard line - he punted - thus conceding the game.
The man plays not to lose and this is the ultimate example.


That's because not only is he offensively inept, he's a p*$$ie as well.

I've got an idea: How about Brad taking a 1/2 pay cut!!!

Ah for chrissakes! Not this $h!t again. If Childress was African/American he'd STILL be the dip$h!t we all know that he is anyway. Wanna cut the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" crapola??? It's FOOTBALL.

I'm a white guy more so calling out the writer for not calling out Chilly and for putting this junk on the website... just pretend the racism part wasn't in there, since you can't handle that part of the discussion.

Trying to pass off responsibility to the individual players, for the failure of the team he's supposed to be leading, is pathetic. I don't see how any Viking player can respect him.

Maybe Childress should consider leading by example. He should 'man up' and take full responsibility for the Viking's dismal performance and record, and tender his resignation.

Childress won't man up nor will Zygi! Who's the problem - an incompetent coach or the man who hired him. I'm starting to believe it's the latter.

getting a coach that has an idea about offense would be a plus not one that is offensive

I think Childress has photos of Zigi and all the beat writers being intimate with sheep. There is no other explanation for their failure to call him out and have him replaced. They just can't bring themselves to say he's baaaad; too many painful memories.
