    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)

    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.

    It was Garrett Mills, but I can't remember the exact problem between BB and Childress.

    Did anyone see Childress on ESPN sat? He was giving an interview about why they chose Harvin.

    Childress was asked about his vetting process of Harvin. His reply I went down there sat with his family & looked him in the eye. He went on to say one of the things he likes about Harvin is "he has a great smile" :confused:

    I'm not making this up!

    I don't see any problem with Childress doing that... the waiver wire works the way it does for a reason: so good teams (like the Pats) can't stash players off the roster.



    Wasn't Childress still the QB coach for Philly when they lost the superbowl?

    OC, in fact.

    FWIW, though, the border war apparently goes back before Mills: remember the 2006 drubbing @Minnesota? (That was the game where the Patriots actually did provide the blueprint for beating the Vikings D—just throw over them!)

    That was also the game where the Patriots forced a three-and-out by sacking Brooks Bollinger on three consecutive downs.

    That's really funny. After the first round, I thought there was only one team worthy of an "F". I mean, the bottom line is we don't really know how these players will turn out... they are still young and none of them have played in the NFL with all the pressures and the speed of the game. So why does Minnesota get an "F"? They made their pick about one minute into their allotted time slot. What on earth could you be thinking? You are so arrogant with your below average team that you don't even want to listen to other offers? How did they know that, within the next nine minutes, a team wouldn't call them and offer them a really sweet deal? You spend months and months evaluating value and these investments are for millions of dollars. Minnesota stood out to me as the only team arrogant enough to think they had stolen a player, with the impatience of knowing they had won with this guy, and not even entertained late, desperate offers. In contrast, the Patriots rand the clock down every time to leverage great value in next year's draft and got two extra second rounders without giving up a second in return.

    As far as Harvin, Pro Football Talk reported yesterday that he had "worn out his welcome" in Florida. How many times does a National Champion football team look back and say "I hope this guy isn't with us next year" when referring to a star receiver? My guess is Harvin is one of the biggest prima donnas in the draft, and I was glad the Vikings chose him, as the Pats had most of the guys I wanted available (although they passed.) I didn't want to see Chad Jackson II on this roster. Meanwhile, Bill Parcells told Darius Butler he would draft him in round one. The draft is full of ruses, broken promises, and changes of philosophy based on more information, contract value (Stafford's deal inflated everyone's salary), etc. Childress is obviously a chump for drafting a guy without fielding other offers, and a bigger chump for trying to thump his chest at a guy who is re-writing the book on how to play the draft.

    I like the Chung, Butler, Brace picks, but Harvin is a game changer who could have been the next Kevin Faulk for us.

    It's probably true but it is retarded of Childress to say that this was a cat and mouse game.

    If the Patriots coveted Harvin to that degree then they would have seen the value in trading for him over other teams that clearly needed a WR.

    It's hardly a MASTERFUL STROKE OF A MASTERMIND OF FOOTBALL MASTERY to pick ahead of another team.

    Looks to me like Childress got played like a stradivarius. Not only does he not realize it, but he actually believes he outsmarted Belichick. Self confidence is one thing, but that is flat out delusional.

    Okay Brad, if that makes you feel better about yourself, you just go on and believe it.
