    Took to long for this to come about. But since we have their 3rd round pick, I don't mind. Childress is a terrible coach.

    Favre, the previous interim coach, announced as the new interim coach. Respeck.

    That was like a mercy killing. It was apparent he had lost control of the team and it was obvious he wasn't coming back next year. If I'm not mistaken more than once a Viking player was asked questions and answered more or less saying 'I don't know who's decision that is' or words to that effect.

    I would be happier if his money wasn't gaurenteed. Doesn't make sense that players who risk their ability to make a living each week by playing don''t get gaurenteed money or not enough gaurenteed money, but theese fraud coaches do.

    Leslie Frazier named as interim HC.

    Here's hoping for more losing.

    That's too bad. I was enjoying watching the tail spin. What's next for Chilly? A new coaching head coach/coordinator gig? Will he be a head coach at the collegic level? I doubt any network would bring him on as an analyst. Perhaps he'll become a flight attendant.

    I guess this Viking beat writer is going to have to update his column from three hours ago:

    Not surprised!

    As I think Schefter mentioned last night, the last team that lost heavily to Green Bay, was Dallas, and they sacked their coach after :)

    This is the most viewed forum by far and BIG NEWS marked as OT is usually ok.

    I think you got screwed on your thread, though.

    How long will the owner realize the sooner you cut Brett Favre, the better the Minnesota Vikings will be in the long run?

    He let a pretty good team get destroyed. Favre is an attention ho past his prime and randy has problems.

    Be thankful we have a coach who knows the team concept and gets the most out of emotional players like Moss and Dillon while they stay in a positive, team first, frame of mind.

    A.D. is the only player I recall that was selected and failed to deliver on the promise we'd hoped, one too many seasons, he's gone and the whole team is turned over. We are so lucky.

    Green Bay is now responsible for causing two coaches to get fired.

    This is two coaches that Green Bay has taken out now. I knew yesterday when the crowd starting chanting "fire Childress" that he was done.

    I'll miss him constantly getting the better of BB on the field, in the draft room, at the trading table...... at least in his mind :)

    He actually turned around a pretty bad team when he took over and got them to the NFC championship game, would have been the SB if not for favre, he just had a short shelf life like most coaches.

    Dont take getting your topic moved so personally, no ones out to get you.

    He should have been fired last year, but Favre's amazing season saved him. This was just a matter of time.
