    Brad Childress once again opens mouth, inserts foot
    By: John Morgan

    Brad Childress has had a long history of being seemingly obsessed with Bill Belichick. Perhaps it is not Belichick, but the New England Patriots as a whole that he is still infatuated with, nine months after being fired as head coach of the Minnesota Viki...

    BB must still be laughing at that trade: he gets a third-round pick for someone who had little to no value to the team at that point, AND got one of the men he despises most fired in the process.

    That reminds me of a part in Patriot Reign where BB's an up and coming coach and some player is mouthing off so he basically tells him to shut the eff up in front of the whole team.

    Belichick on his worst day > Childress on his best day.

    amatuer article, like usual.

    I walked into McDonalds last week, and said "These fries are ****ty". To me that says that McDonalds is responsible for my car breaking down.

    Yep, pretty much nailed it. If he could be re-fired after making these comments, I'm sure he would be.

    It isn't about that. It is about his weak attempt to shift the blame rather than taking responsibility for the situation and handling it like an adult.

    Since you are obviously such a more talented writer, why don't you ask Ian to set you up with your own column here?

    Amateur? You need help both on spelling and on constructing a rational argument.
    Your simile is false and misleading.

    It's clear to me, and most people quite possibly, that Moss is being used as a scapegoat.

    If you remember when Moss was traded to MIN, he was upbeat and was looking forward to working with Favre and getting his career back on track for a 2011 payday.

    But I think when he got there, he found out how bad things already were there, and how little hope Childress had of turning it around. And that's why his attitude went sour.

    You know what? I always thought Childress was a horrible coach, but he is being paid to be an analyst now. I think it is honesty like that that could kick start his career.

    Comments like these don't speak well to his coaching abilities, but it might make him a good talking head. I would rather listen to a guy who doesn't pull punches rather than kiss every player and coach's arse.

    But slamming someone you have a personal grudge against is no better than kissing your friends' arses. Neither is impartial or based entirely on reality.

    Moss was actually on his team, it makes sense that he'd talk about him, it's not like he brought up Belichick (this time). Childress was a terrible coach, but the editorials on this site are awful, too, they're no better than the muckraking from the established media that we jump all over. Let's all make fun of ESPN and then do what they do...

    I don't see it as that at all. I think Childress is an asscl0wn, but I think its pretty clear that Moss pretty much did vomit all over the lockerroom.

    Moss could have been the best teammate ever, and Childress was still losing his job, and I'm sure he knows that.

    Who said his opinions were based on a personal grudge. It could be an accurate assessment. Moss made no friends in Minnesota and some of his exploits have already been well publicized like when he trashed the catering to the caterer's face.

    Spot on Synovia.

    There's, understandably, a lot of love for Moss around here because of what he did during his time with the Patriots. But his behavior upon being traded to Minn was unprofessional BS unworthy of what he had done in NE.
    With that said, Childress earned most of his criticism and the Moss incident was just the last 10 cents needed to purchase Childress' million dollar ticket to obscurity.

    You know, you could actually try to argue against some of my points, instead of just making insults.

    This is a nice example of why this site's articles are consistently terrible.

    Sorry, I didn't think you had a point. You gave your opinion of the writer and I gave my opinion of your being a critic. You can always ask for your money back if you are dissatisfied with some of the product.

    Let's move on.

    I would love to read this guys book. I'm sure it will be written in crayon and have pictures so it won't take that long. But honestly I really want to know how this guy got to the NFL level of coaching. There's just something wrong there. A lot of us have been coaches and to see him break simple rules like owning up to mistakes, coach to coach matters private. Never mind 10 year old kids being able to pick up on these things. We are talking about grown men with degree's from major colleges in the NFL dealing with a clown like this.
