They both need to go, not just Moss. If you heard what he said at the post-practice team meal Friday in front of the caterers. Pretty much sums up his make-up. And he has kids.

If he wasnt playing football no doubt this self absorbed clown would be in the criminal justice system several times over. cant wait to see when he finally does hang it up what he's sent to jail for. not a matter of if either but when.

Frazier needs the opportunity to coach this team. I hope that comes to fruition. But the organization has difficulty in doing the right thing lately so I'm not holding my breath.

I hope they move to LA so we don't have to deal with this nonsense anymore. Zygi and Chilly have turned this franchise into a joke.

Pretty much every analyst agrees that CHilly has completely lost control of the team. Although I'd argue it happened long ago when he publically handed control over to Favre.

Favre fired him, after all he runs the team now, not Childress. Being a Packer fan, this is so freakin hilarious my sides are hurting just from laughing at this latest episode in the Queens meltdown of 2010. You guys hitched your wagon to Favre and Childress when it was obvious to anyone with a brain that neither would produce a championship, just more disappointment.
The Vikings need someone with a good football mind in charge, they have no one in this organization who fits the bill. Is Mike Lynn still available?
ahahahaha...good post there chubs!! friggin' hilarious....you should go on the road, man!!!

you slacker backers talk like you have room to. tell me genius, whose the great football mind in slacker land? if the league gives back Shanco's TD that was taken away from the Vikes erroneously - Slackers are 5-4 - one game from being a .500 football team. And the game they did win - couldnt score a TD in it to save their lives! Cause theyre just that good, right?!?!?! You guys hitched your wagon to a Favre wanna-be with an identity issue that will never win you a SB. Slackers could use some one with just a mind...that would be a good start.

DUUUHHHH....is Vince Lumbardio and Bart Starr still available???

Nothing but friggin' idiots and drunks there in dairy land....or as we's like to call it in the biz...DUI land.

mine too...the day we resigned him was one of the happier of my life. i love him as a personality and a player. his MO is not hard to grasp, he just needs to feel needed, and he needs to have balls thrown to him.
Savor the irony of it: Moss waived on election day for exercising his freedom of speech. It's come to this: Chilly can't take some implied criticism from a fan-beloved star in this supposedly rough-and-tumble world of NFL football. Has Chilly been so insulated from harsh language in his football career? Can he not take the heat? Is this him "excercising control" over the team? Of course Randy is going to stick his foot in his own mouth; he's Randy, it's expected! Now once again, another team gets rich from our stupidity. Wilf should fire Childress immediately and retain Moss. Skol Vikings.

Somewhere Ziggy has a Tice letter with Chilly's name on it.

It's amazing how many people are siding with Moss and his actions in this deal, Childress needs to go, there is no doubt. Let's be realistic here and say that Moss' behavior was pathetic, there is more to this than just the comments to the media. There was behind the scenes stuff in the locker room as well. Many of the Vikings players wanted him gone as well. Ziggy doesn't care what any of us fans think because this is a business to him and that's it. He would rather destroy the team and piss off the fans and move to Los Angeles, just to line his pockets. Don't fool yourselves into thinking that an owner who has no ties to Minnesota gives a damn what we think here.

Our current ownership/management has a literary equivilent.."Confederacy of Dunces".

What's happening is really too bad. Childress is about two years overdue to be fired. Wilfs shouldn't wait til the end of the season, and Les will probably be gone as well as our season. Pull the trigger now Mr. Wilf. You have my support.

Moss was waived for being a classless, prima donna, self absorbed, me, me, me person - thats not protected under the freedom of speech. Yeah, Vikes should have known what they were getting - far be it from anyone to think he might have grow'd up a bit since the last stint with them when actually as we found out, he got worse. And I cant argue wanting Childress fired.

But lets get real with the real reason he was let go and not hide behind the "freedom of speech" mantra.

Everyone seems to be slamming Childress, but as a Packers fan that lived through the Favre "retirement" a few years ago, I can tell you that it was most likely Favre that convinced Wilf and Childress to bring in Moss. "Me-first" Favre tried the same thing with Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy, but they said no.

The best thing that can happen at this point, would be for Childress to sit Favre down, and play Tavaris for a few games so he gets some experience. The Vikings can draft a young QB in the first round next year, and they'd be right back in the playoff hunt. I don't think Childress is a bad coach... he's just getting some bad advice from "Coach Favre".

Two things need to happen to get the Vikings on the right track (and that won't happen this season): 1. Get rid of Chilly 2. Find a long-term solution at QB.
Chilly is barely above .500 in his 4+ years as head coach, with exactly 1 playoff win.
Hopefully, the post-Favre era will not parallel that of the Bears and their neverending search for a starting QB.

I purchased 10 of them. That is the only reason why I traded for Moss so I could get them autographed. 5 I will keep for Christmas gifts, one for Favre as parting gift when he retires (again) and the other 4 I will be posting on eBay for some pathetic Viking fan to buy. Please bid, it looks like I may need to supplement my income soon. eBay ID is Chillytard84fan.

Don't want to step on Viking fans when you're down, but I am so-o-o-o-o loving this.


The only thing missing is for Chilly to sit Mr. Favor down. Will that be a screech!
