Brad Childress goes Biblical regarding Brett

With the Minnesota Vikings and their new nearly 40-year-old toy preparing to face the team with which he spent 16 seasons, the coaches who’ll preside over the Monday night game are facing questions regarding the efforts of Brett Favre to effect a transfer to Minnesota one year earlier than it happened.

Here’s a quick refresher.  If the Packers didn’t want Favre playing for them, then Favre wanted to play for the Vikings.  The Packers said no, ultimately filing tampering charges against the Vikings for allegedly trying to land him.  Eventually, Favre was traded to the Jets — and the Jets faced the forfeiture of three first-round picks if they later flipped Favre to one of the teams in the NFC North.  (By releasing Favre, the Jets faced no consequence when he signed with Minnesota.)

On Monday, Vikings coach Brad Childress fielded a question regarding whether he hoped to secure Favre’s services in 2008. 

And Childress went Biblical.

“Did I covet him?” Childress said, per the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  “The good Lord tells us not to covet
other people’s goods.  No, I didn’t covet him because he was property of
the Packers
.”

Meanwhile, Packers coach Mike McCarthy denied that the term required the Jets to potentially cough up three first-round picks in order to avoid having to face Favre.

“That was not part of my thought process during that time,” McCarthy
said, possibly with a straight face.  “I was more focused on getting back coaching my team because of
the amount of time that I was pulled away from the team during training
camp dealing with that scenario.”

We’re not sure we see the connection, most likely because there isn’t one.

And so, with Childress paying lip service to the tenth commandment, our guess is that he and McCarthy have taken liberties with the ninth one.

Then again, we think that regularly bearing false witness is in the job description.

    Ted Thompson traded Brett Favre and made the deal, not Mike McCarthy. Thompson is the GM, McCarthy is the head coach. The press should be asking Ted Thompson those questions, not McCarthy.
    So, no, that wouldn’t be part of McCarthy’s thought process during that time, because he was a coach in training camp, trying to get his team prepared for the upcoming season.
    Once again, Florio, Thompson = GM. McCarthy = head coach. Print this out and put it next to your computer for future reference.

    Packers @ Vikings will be one of the best
    MNF games in history, I am a big Vikings fan
    and I pray they win. But I also know
    that the Packers will bring everybody and their
    brothers after old Brett, I hope he survives.

    Mike “freakin” Florio. I predicted earlier when I read the story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune that you would go Biblical on Brad for him mentioning covet and the Bible. You are so predictable Florio. You talkin about bearing false witness is the most hypocritical shit I ever heard since Dr. Phil was found cheating on his old lady!! Favre gonna bring Moss to Vikings? You talk more false shit than a bar full of drunken Sconnies. Didn’t the ninth commandment say something about returning your enemies ox or donkey if you find it wandering around??? Well McCarthy,we found your old ox. His name is Brett Favre. He is going to pull our wagon to victory over your ass and bet we will not return him!!

    Childress had to say he didn’t covet Favre, otherwise the cheesers would have once again bringeth thou whiney transgressions of tampering to thy Lord Goodell.

  13. dcfan-1212450 says: Sep 29, 2009 9:52 AM

    Seriously, is this a story? Why not use the quotes to mention the matchup, not the biblical quote, and then focus on the coaches response to Favre being traded to the Jets instead of the GM who made the trade. Switch gears to the matchup, which should be fun.

  14. Darcy says: Sep 29, 2009 9:53 AM

    Florio, don’t covet your neighbor’s goods is the 9th commandment, not the 10th. Don’t bear false witness is the 8th, not the 9th. Maybe you should stick to football and skip the religion jokes. But then, you don’t get your facts right about football either, so I guess this is just the Florio Way.

  19. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Sep 29, 2009 10:46 AM

    Too bad for Brett and Chili and the whole purple kingdome that the season isn’t only 8 games long. Brett might have 6 MVP’s and the purple might have won a SB. It is a long season a battle not like the 3 cupcakes they have played this season so far.

  20. Ambrose says: Sep 29, 2009 10:53 AM

    Brett Favre is the reason Brett Favre is no longer playing for the Packers, not Ted Thompson. Favre messed with the team’s collective head at the end of each year for three straight years. And last year he just waited too damn long to make up his mind. His fault…all the way across the board. That having been said, the guy still has what it takes to play quarterback in the NFL. You think Cleveland or Miami wouldn’t love to have him? We have a good quarterback too, and it feels good doesn’t it? Yes, it was a great pass…but it was a better catch. If McCarthy had not wasted a TO with a stupid red flag review, Rodgers would have had an opportunity to pull off a last-second victory against Cincinnati too (a team that is one goofy tipped play from being 3-0, including a defeat of the defending SB champs.) I feel very good about the Packers chances next Monday and I feel like the team does too. This game is unlike previous contentious games between the Packers and the Vikings for one reason and one person only. Favre causes no more anxiousness for the Packers than Culpepper used to. And he had Moss. Bring it on.

    As for the 49ers and the Bears, that is a coin toss.
    49ers are for real this year. For the Bears, it depends on which Cutler shows up.
    I would have thought someone who has made a big an ass as you have of yourself on here, would be too ashamed to show back up on this site.
    I guess it just goes to show that ignorance and no sense of self worth, knows no bounds.

  26. JimmySmith says: Sep 29, 2009 11:14 AM

    Tampering, much like playing loose with the injury reporting, is rampant in the NFL so it should come as no surprise that Goodell choose to look the other way. He had a ratings winner if Favre would only agree to play for another team so the ‘investigation” into the allegation was a joke. So what if they had Brent’s cell phone records with calls directly to Chilly, they were just talking about good fishing spots and we are not talking about Lake Minnetonka.
    Childress may not be very smart (an understatment to say the least) but he sure as hell is going to admit to the national media what really went on, after all, Goodell gave the Vikings a free pass last summer, they are not going to tempt fate by outing Goodell a year later.

The late season fading is nothing new for the vikes…….the great weapons that are always invincable, turn out to be illusions…..aka….jerod allan……randy moss…..dante culpepper…..the list goes on and on……..build a team,build a team,build a team…….superstars only let you down, and it takes all 45 players to win a game……not one overpriced,over-the-hill all-about-me has-been….

    The ninth commandment- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. This commandment forbids misrepresenting the truth in relations with others.
    Mr. Florio- Terry Bradshaw on line 2, we wants to talk to you about not doing proper research and putting forth a falsehood. A lie is a lie.
    And of course PFT has never spun the truth to fit their (Florio’s) agenda, no never…

    You are like 6 year olds, he’s freinds with Brad and Bevell, I don’t like them, so he’s not my freind anymore!!
    Sounds like a bunch of scared packer fans.
    As well you should be. You know what Favre can do as well as anyone.

    Nice to see that things haven’t changed.
    Not worried at all. I expect a split with the Pack this year.
    Starting out 3-0 allows a team to 8-5 the rest of the year and still get 11 wins.

  36. Supersuckers says: Sep 29, 2009 12:16 PM

    Ambrose,
    Well said! You look past the previous seasons about a football team and analyze this years version. A certain poster always used to say “What does that have to do with now” but yet he is calling a 3-0 Denver team bad and a 2-1 (fluke from 3-0) Cincy team bad based upon their histories.. Also, absolutely correct about Favre. peterson and Taylor are the biggest concern for Monday. That was a good analagy regarding the fear factor. I wouldnt put Favre up there with Culpepper for the very reason you stated. Moss. I fear Favre about as much as a guy like Jeff George in his prime. He can hurt ya but he can sure hurt his own team as well. Favre is going to be jacked and I just remember the last time he played in a hyped up national night game at Dallas in 2007 and he was heaving prayers (2picks) before he got hurt. Rodgers almost rallied the team back to win.

  37. TheHydraPart3 says: Sep 29, 2009 12:37 PM

    TheHydra says there was a under the table agreement that he would agree to be traded to the Jets IF they give him his release after one year.

    Bottom Line, the Bears should be 0-3. The 2 wins you do have are without a doubt because the opposing kickers have missed a total of 4 field goal inside of 45 yards. Chicago is a sh*t team, you are an 8-8 team at best. I can’t wait to see A.D. spank that *ss! At least Green Bay looks like they want to compete for the North. By the way Green Bay, thank you. That last second touchdown pass Sunday, came courtesy of you fella!
    Get used to the smell of our *ss because you will be trailing us all year…Only this year it won’t smell like TJack/Gus *ss…its gonna smell like Brett Favre ass. And Green Bay will eat, basque, and bath in it. Haha thats a great idea. In Minnesota we will manufacture cheese called “Brett Favre’s Ass” then we will exclusively sell it to Wisconsin and at this time we will ask the question. Hey Green Bay, tell us how Brett Favre’s ass tastes? And then Green Bay will respond. “Not too good.”

    If she was the first woman how could she have had ancestors?
    @ zygi milf–I’ll say a lttle prayer for you–you’re gonna need it–& I ain’t talkin football here
    @jimmy smith–if there was any tampering we’ll know about it as soon as Favre either retires & is getting no more attention or he signs with another team–boy can’t quit talking–but he sure can throw a pass
    @chickenfoot–how ya doin man? It will be a knife in the heart, believe me, it will be.
    @ Ambrose–fault lies both with Favre & TT but no need to dwell on history. Just repeat after me, Farve is now the enemy, Favre is now the enemy…..
    way up top @ Pack Attack–definitely record viewers–should move it to ABC though. This is one for the ages. If the same team that played the 1st half of the 3rd preseason game shows up, game on. If not, probably not so much. Hopefully, it is at least is a decent game that lives up to the hype & obviously I hope we take it. Either way they’ll have to play again at Lambeau.

    If THE VIKINGS (not just Favre, once again it’s a team sport) beat us, we won’t be hurt. We’ll be mad at our own coaching staff for letting it happen.
    Most of us could give a damn about Favre. He’s like your ex-girlfriend, that you dump, but she’s not over you, and then she gets with some other guy, that’s foolish enough to let her use him, and then she goes out of her way to make sure you see the two of them together, to try to make you jealous. Is that “like a knife in the heart”? If it is, you shouldn’t have dumped her. We are feeling fairly comfortable about the decision however. We all know how well “rebound” relationships usually work out.
    Go ahead and judge every Packer fan by the words of a few who are stupid enough to fall for Favre’s games. I assure you, they are NOT the majority.

    OK, so what you’re really saying is that it would be stupid and a waste of time for you to base your life, beliefs and morals on the Bible. Good for you, you obviously lead a perfectly good, clean and just life and need no such guidance. But imagine the people who would have done better to base their lives, beliefs and morals on the Bible. I’m no Bible-thumper, but seems to me that anything that gets people to do the right thing is good. Even if some nimrod somewhere dismisses it as a “fictional book full of hypocrisies, myths and double-standards” with no more regard than one might have for a dime paperback found at a used book store.

    Guess all Packer fans are not turd nuggets. You Beer Cheese and footballrulz are pretty sharp and level headed fans. This is sports though,anything can happen. I see it a as a brawl between two Norse division teams. I know I’ll be on the edge of my seat every time Rodgers drops back with Jennings and Driver running down field. That is a very capable trio there.
    Everyones talkin what’s Brett’s head gonna be like Monday night. Will he be deadly confident? Over anxious? Got to be a strange game for him. I look at Rodgers in just the same way. Playing against the HOF legend that he was under. Will that make him nervous out of his game? Or bring a fire to show that he is the right Packer choice.
    All I know is that I am more pumped for this game then I have been in a long damn time. Gonna be a long 6 days!

    As a vikes fan…im 65 percent we will win the game…i think it unfair to say who will win this one…crazy sh*t happens everytime these 2 teams meet. Obviously Minnesota has the best team but Green Bay will Bring it…it the words of wayne and darth…..GAME ON!

    Wow Larry, nice post! I see you took my advice about learning to form coherent sentences, and you even toned down the homerisms a bit. I’m amazed. If you can do it, anyone can do it (and that means you, Doc “this is our year” BG).
    I do have one tiny little critique though. Though I agree with you just based on what I have seen up to this point, I feel it’s premature to say either is “obviously” the best team. both teams have faced varying levels of competition, which makes it hard to gauge, and it’s frankly just to early in the season to make such sweeping statements.
    Anything can happen, that’s why they play the games. If anyone was so “obviously” the best team, they would just crown the champion in April, long before the season even started.
    Nevermind… I forgot you guys do just that every year anyway. I’ll echo what you said: game on!

    Beer:
    Too bad it isn’t just Vikings fans that do that. Crown thier teams in April. Packer fans are just as guilty of that as anyone, at least in the Southwest corner of Wisconsin. Every year fans look at the schedule and I mean every year, and predict 11-13 wins. Like it’s a birthright or something.
    So, your sarcastic dig aside, maybe you shouldn’t be making sweeping statements about all Vikings fans either.
    It’s a leauge wide thing, there are always going to be fans of all teams that are going to crown them before the season even starts.

    I heard there was a mass exit at the dome after the vikes secong to last possession of the game. Confirm or deny…

  62. Chickenfoot says: Sep 30, 2009 10:31 AM

    Honestly, I don’t know. I tend to pay attention to what is going on, on the field.
    It could be though, I’m sure that NEVER, EVER, happens at Lambeau though, right?
    Give me a damn break! Seriously? You want to start already this A.M. with silly shit like that?

  63. Supersuckers says: Sep 30, 2009 10:44 AM

    Can anyone confirm or deny this?

  64. Chickenfoot says: Sep 30, 2009 11:44 AM

    Really? What point are you trying to make?

    I was at the game and of the 63,000 there probably 4 or 5 thousand that left their seats early. Of those people most of them congregated by the hallways and waited to see what happened at the end. Not many people left the stadium.
    There were plenty of Vikings fans who did not give up on the game and were rewarded with a phenomenal finish.
    There were intermittent boos throughout the game. There are at every game and it’s usually directed at the playcalling and not the players. There were audible boos at Lambeau when the Bengals beat them on their own field.
    The Packers are in for a big challenge on Monday night. The energy in the building is going to be incredible. Someday it will come out that Brett never wanted to retire and that the Packers were going to cut him if he didn’t and they talked him into retiring. They needed to go to Rogers so he would not leave via free agency and with Favre around it would have been a distraction.
    Ted Thompson is the last person in the world that I would want to be right now.
    I guess I’ll take this guy at his word.
    He was actually there, not getting seconhand info.
    I guess Super, you are trying to say that Packer fans are somehow superior to Viking fans.
    That is beneath you and you know it.

    This guy’s last paragraph is a absolute joke! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!!!!! What a goof ball statement! Conspiracy!!!! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!! Rodgers was locked up for two more years!!!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAHA!!!!!
    I was just asking a simple question to no one in particular and am finding Chickenfoot to be a little defensive about the subject and question. Especially when it wasn’t directed at Chickenfoot.

  66. Chickenfoot says: Sep 30, 2009 12:30 PM

    It’s what you are implying that I take issue with.
    You aren’t dumb and you know what I’m talking about.
    Again, what’s the difference if people left? It happens at every stadium including your “hallowed” Lambeau field.
    I didn’t read the ” conspiracy” stuff, You wanted an answer, you got one. Moving along…….

  67. Supersuckers says: Sep 30, 2009 12:56 PM

    Didnt imply anything. Just asked a question. i wouldnt call lambeau “My hallowed: I personally think the traditional seating area is a dump. One of the most uncomfortable places to watch a game. Unless you are in a suite. If they had seats instead of steel benches in the “bowl the capacity would shrink by about ten thousand. Not comfortable. I put it in the dump category.

  68. Beer Cheese Soup says: Sep 30, 2009 4:50 PM

    Suckers-you’re doing it all wrong. you’re not supposed to be sitting down at the game. No wonder it’s uncomfortable..

  69. Supersuckers says: Oct 1, 2009 11:26 AM

    standing shoulder to shoulder. i forgot to mention that. You’ll see me in a suite or not at the dump at all.
