    According to the article below, that pinnacle of coaching success, the ever popular and always amazing Brad Childress, beat BB to Percy Harvin.

    Patriots, others were hoping to land Harvin

    I found the article amusing for Childress puffing out his chest and doing his 'me draft like Tarzan, coach like Jane' bit for the papers, but reading the comments was priceless. Enjoy.

    It is what it is.. a function of the bored and idle press.. lets wash the balls of Brad Childress.. most Minny fans I know, really hate their coach.

    I'm thinking that "players" like Childress and Al Davis really make this Draft "poker game" a lot of fun for the likes of BB and Andy Reid!!!!

    Good find Box, thanks for the laugh!

    Un f***** believable. Paranoia, envy and idiocy combine.

    It was the strawberries. Oh they denied it, but I proved with geometric logic that Belichick stole the strawberries. They laughed at me.......

    Putting aside all the possible problems with this, do you really think at pick 23 the Patriots promise to pick a certain player?

    Wow!!

    I'm sure Box gets the Queeg Childress allusion, but here's the classic.

    Great find, BOR. That was a nice little pick me up for Monday morning.

    Question, though...WHY does Childress dislike BB so much? It seems like every year he's making some dumb comment or another about him. Is it just because of the Monday Night whooping we put on them a few years ago, or is there something more?

    This comment was the best (IMO)

    :yeahthat: So true.

    Childress is the very definition of doing less with more.

    I pulled this quote from the comments section...

    "Why is chilly always crowing about how he pulled off some mastermind kungfu action to thwart the patriots, who barely realize we exist?"

    Cracked me up.:singing:

    BOR, thanks for the good laugh on my Monday morning and Brad Clueless live up to his name:D:D

    I am pretty sure that BB is also having a great laugh this morning over the whole thing. Childress said that BB thought that they were not going to take him??? They have no receivers and many of us in our mocks had Harvin going to Minny because they have just Berrian to throw the ball to their.

    I really do not like the Loadholt pick, I really think that this guy is going to be a huge....literary bust IMO. I just did not like him at the Senior Bowl and find him Lazy and Lethargic....maybe a good RT for Minny to fill a need but he is a couple of years away from contributing IMO.

    I give Minnys draft a (C-) Harvin is unbelievably talented. Based on that alone, he should have been a first-round pick. However, he comes with a ton of baggage. He has major durability issues. He has an injury history. He's a raw receiver who played in a system that proves that it doesn't translate well to the NFL. They grow pretty good weed in the MidWest so that will be a problem as well.

    Again BB is just laughing at this whole article...with his new receiver coach.

    My favorite comment:

    The football field is a canvas and Childress is an artist. Harvin is just a new color of paint to be added to the masterpiece. Heck, if the defense scores a TD every week, we'll average over 20 ppg.

    Harvin is a good player though and it could be true. We did draft Tate later.

    I think BB liked Harvin, but if he really wanted him, he would have jumped over Minnie or Philly. Both teams needed WRs, so it's not crazy to believe that either team would take him.

    We did also take Tate, but that was in the 3rd round, not the 1st. No doubt we would have taken Harvin at 34 if he was there some how though.

    2-3 years ago (the same season we played Minny in Minny) before the season, BB set Childress on fire for some FA transactional move on a player whom I forgot. It was a big to-do for Childress at the time and he complained bitterly during some preseason press conference.

    I think it all started there. I'm not sure who the player was, or whether it had to do with an oral agreement to make a trade, etc. Anyone remember?

    If I remember correctly, the Patriots were trying to get a tight end () to the practice squad and something happened when BB asked for amounted to a "professional courtesy"

    If I can remember the name I'll post it later.
