Fire him already? What more does it take? We're tied with Detroit for crying out loud...DETROIT!

On the road with the lead, take the sure points...an absolute no brainer. And his knowledge of the game is soooo slim. How do you challenge that call and miss obvious ones... run Forest run

I mean something has to be done. Don't we have the highest payroll in the NFL? We need a new staduim and I think that would get it for them if we brought in a high profile coach in here to right the ship! The way I see it... we are not going to be the 07 Giants. I think this season is in down the tubes!!!

He should have been fired in 2008, game 2, after the loss to the colts. http://www.firechilly.com

this should have been done a very long time ago but there is absolutely no other motive then sabotage in keeping him on staff at this point.

Childress' self absorbed stubborness to prove he is some sort of prolific master of gamemanship has to end. His poor management at crucial moments at the end of last yrs. game against N.O. proved it. I would not, however, jump on the Frazier bandwagon as the defense has been less than stellar. He may be an immediate fix, but Cowher, Dungy, and others are out there. I do expect the Wilf's to amke an announcement tomorrow. Stay tuned. Note: The Vikes will make the play-offs (wildcard) I predeict.

Heck, you guys are late to this party. I wanted him fired at his opening press conference. Pretty obvious we'd only ever be successful in-spite of this guy.

If he's fired now, i guess i'd want Schottenheimer. If it's post-season, I'd want Rob Ryan. or bill cower if the rumors of him wanting to get back into coaching are real.

Clearly there's a morale problem on this team.......one of the most talented on paper.

Chilly must go. He talks like a broadcaster on the 9th hole.

We need a screamer!

Bring Tice back. With this roster, he's bring us a SB!

I'm done with the Vikes untill "Chilish" is gone with his control freak ways.

Chilly should be fired and Frasier should count his blessings he's made it as far as coordinator (Bevell too)!!!

Frasier, should focus on coaching tackling and turnover skills instead of complaining that he can't get a head coach job. Geez, this defense has stunk all year! Leslie, you're a nice guy, but they don't hand out head coaching jobs, you earn them with great play from the unit you coach (ie. Mike Tomlin).

Chilly is just plain over his head as head coach of an NFL team. If the Wilf's don't see that now, they are over THEIR heads in owning a football franchise.

I don't know how Childress manages to find so many unique ways each week to pull defeat from the jaws of victory, but he does and that should be enough to say it's time to look for another coach.

The season is toast, make the move to get things working a better direction sooner than later.

I say we fire childress and go get either Tony Dungy, Brian Billick, or Bill Cowher. Frazier is an option to take over but with the defensive performance today, I am questioning him a little. We've got the wrong personel in the defensive lineup. First of all, Madieu Williams needs to be benched, Asher Allen needs to not play, and Brian Robinson needs to replace jared allen until he can be healthy, and Bernard Berrian needs to just get let go. You could juke madieu williams just by running in a straight line, Asher Allen was the reason the defense couldn't stop the patriots and continues to just get burned. Jared Allen needs to learn a few spins moves because he depends on the quick burst which he doesn't have right now because of his injury which is why he's a non factor every game, and Bernard Berrian? Need I explain? The guy is turning out to be the next Troy Williamson.
