Brad Childress couldn't handle Birk and Birk ended up leaving rather than play for the VK (veteran killer) as he was known around the league and the o-line has never been the same, when will the vikings be able to throw off the yoke of chilly?

In defense of Chilly, Birk's last couple years in Minnesota were average at best.
I really didn't see a problem letting him walk. In hindsight it was probably a mistake because while Sullivan is young he also has not been healthy and the production at that position has fallen.
A chance of scenery was probably just what the doctor ordered for Birk's sake. He has played fairly well for Baltimore.
