Chilly is an idiot. These star players make him relevant and successful. He needs to realize that.

Dear Brett Favre,

If I'm Childress, I don't trust you either. I know you want to show the world you can still air it out at 41, but the Vikings and Childress want to win the Super Bowl. We won't win if you throw the ball 60 times a game. And, if you'll recall, you threw the interception in the NFC Championship Game. The play Chillie called got Sidney Rice wide open. You blew it buddy.

Sincerely, True Viking Fan

I just have to say that Favre has some big time cajones for coming back against a much stiffer schedule. As for play-calling, let the ol' gunslinger do whatever the hell he wants out there. Dude has been around so long that you should trust his judgment! I am saying 10-6

I wouldn't trust Klink either

He has proven that he is not a NFL calibre head coach.

His coaching techniques or lack of could be our
downfall

Klink and that huge ego of is, that is what it is all about. No one will/is going to tell him, how to do anything ( ie, draft TJOKE)...and now that the Zygmyster has signed this clown to an extension we are stuck with this bald headed egomaniac for another 4 or 5 years......

I want to know who that player is, so I can avoid rooting for him. Is that player upset Brett Favre came back or he is upset that Favre is getting all the attention & now has to create dissension in the locker room among players & coaches? Why would he say stuff like that? Whether it's true or not, that player should be moved to the 2nd or 3rd team or just released. Chilly may not be the brightest coach in the league, but I believe he has done a good job, not a great job, but an average job. That player needs to be called out by name & then asked if he is the true idiot here who is in untrustworthy. Speaking out like that, makes you look stupid & not trustworthy either. So far, everyone did a good job of keeping their mouth shut. Now it's time to PUT UP or SHUT UP.

I have it on record that an unnamed leprechaun overheard talking to a unicorn stated Brad was telling his coaches that Santa Claus doesnít exist. Clearly this is why Brad and Brett arenít as close as they seem to the public.

Surely nobody is surprised by this with the clown we have for a head coach. If it wasn't fur Favre in 2009, Klink would be looking for work as a D-III coach.

This has always been the Vikings problems, without trust, you don't win games, esp when it is crunch time.

I am surprised that the egos of these two guys would even fit in the metrodome.

It's the cost of doing business with Favre. He's the head coach, not you.

Favre is many things but a team player and good soldier, he is not.

This is a bunch of garbage written by someone who is trying to create that so-called schism in the locker room (probably a Green Bay Packer writer). They subscribe to the theory of "throw it against the wall & see if it sticks. If it does, it must be true" What a bunch of hog-wash. We all are a little dumber for reading that drivel!!!!!

Yahoo sports reports:

Brett, I must apologize. I will be the first to admit that you have forgotten more about football than I'll ever know. May I go back to my room now?

If there is one thing he shouldn't trust, it is the offensive line, Farve took a lot of hits last year. They go and get a franchise quarterback and then forget to hire a compentent offensive line. Sounds like Jets.
