Announcement expected "soon" for Childress deal

B.Childress.jpgWith the second half of the season officially underway, the coaching carousel is less two months away from spinning wildly again.

Vikings coach Brad Childress is one coach that doesn’t have to worry about his job status anymore.  A long-anticipated contract extension is reportedly coming “soon” according to Clark Judge of CBS Sports.  Sources tell Judge there are no major obstacles left to a deal and an announcement is expected.

Childress is expected to double his current $2 million salary after extension talks that lost some momentum around the team’s bye week, but has reportedly picked up lately.

We can’t help but think of Jon Gruden’s comments on Monday Night Football when he said that Brett Favre creates jobs for coaches that work with him.

In Childress’ case, Favre is allowing Childress to get a big second contract to keep his job.

    …and Packers fans rejoice. Despite only being a one-loss team, Childress makes the least of what he has to work with on a regular basis. Terrible playcaller who’s fortunate to have some amazing young (and one not so young) talent on the field that make things happen in spite of him.
    Can’t wait to see him “develop” another young QB like T-Jax after Lord Favre finally takes a hike.

    It’s amazing what a coach can do when he has the all the pieces to the puzzle. And he has as many as anybody has.

  3. bustabloodvessel says: Nov 18, 2009 4:01 PM

    It all has to be Favre. Everyone seems to forget the Vikings won the NFC north last year. That doesn’t matter though, huh.

  4. ty@thelionsinwinter says: Nov 18, 2009 4:03 PM

    HA! The snare is tripped! Soon Vikings fans will have only a Super Bowl title to keep them warm through the next five years . . . five years of Chilly and “T-Jack” playing 7-win football with a 11-win supporting cast.
    Peace

    This guy’s a complete turd. Once Favre actually retires, the Vikes will be back to where they were. They’re going to be an 8-8 team plus or minus 2 games once again.

  6. Ambrose says: Nov 18, 2009 4:05 PM

    He better get that thing signed before they fail to reach the SuperBowl, because the Favre dance macabre at the start of next season won’t help.

  7. Vikes-N-Favre says: Nov 18, 2009 4:06 PM

    Bad move on the Vikings part. Favre has made Childress look much better then he really is, just like Favre made McCarthy look much better then he is.
    When Favre officially calls it a career, and unless the Vikings find a true franchise QB, they will be back to the same old Vikings because of Childress.

  10. irishgary says: Nov 18, 2009 4:10 PM

    Thank you Queenies. After we fire McCarthy we can count on 2-0 against the Queens as long as this moron is around. Now if the Bears can bring Jauron back and the Lions stay the same we will be 6 – 0 in conference.

  11. PervyHarvin says: Nov 18, 2009 4:11 PM

    Chilly has built a NFL top 5 team and is always improving. How can you argue with this? I’m good with it.For people that think he is stupid- ALL COACHES MAKE DUMB CALLS,CHILLY INCLUDED. I happen to love his choice in players to go after.

  12. beefcake says: Nov 18, 2009 4:12 PM

    Lets not forget chilly is the one who built this team. play calling can be suspect at times but he can build a great team.

    “Its amazing what a coach can do when he has all the pieces to the puzzle….”
    How do you think those pieces got there? You would need 4 hands to count all the pieces that Childress is responsible for assembling.

  15. indians131184 says: Nov 18, 2009 4:14 PM

    yeah well dont forget who was the one who brought in all of those pieces. he didn’t inherit peterson or rice or favre or jared allen. all of those players were acquired by him. doesnt that alone justify keeping him around a little longer? shouldnt he get credit for making up for his shortcomings by making great choices in personnel?

  16. purplepuzzyeatrz says: Nov 18, 2009 4:15 PM

    Being a Huge Vikings Fan, I used to Hate Childress. I wont claim to be a Great Football Mind(KFAN) but I have learned alot in the last year. One thing for sure, is that he has assisted in building a great team, that will remain strong for awhile…His play calling has become far better, due to the fact he has a QB that can run a system…If Farve Retires, we need a solid replacement, or its back to 8 Play playbook….
    Keep that in mind My Beloved purple…
    Jackson is soooooo…not the answer

  17. pkrlvr says: Nov 18, 2009 4:15 PM

    Favre’s got the magic touch. In 2007 he had a great year and two turds got rich. This year at least it’s only one. Watching MM and TT get paid after the 2007 year made me sick. They got rich on BF’s arm, then kicked him out of town.

    …and Packers fans rejoice.
    Seriously?? It must really, really suck to be a Packers fan the last couple of years. The team is not winning, they lost their QB legend, who then signed with their hated rivals and whooped their tails twice. Ouch.
    You’ll all forgive me if I don’t see much of anything for Packers fans to rejoice about. I’m no huge Childress fan, but he has brought in a lot of good players, and the team has gotten better and better under his watch. The same can’t be said for any other coach in the NFC North.
    As far as playcalling goes, it has improved as the personnel has improved (hmmmm…amazing huh?) And besides, Darell Bevell calls the majority of the plays, not Childress.
    I personally think that ownership should wait to see how the year plays out to extend Chilly, but I also think that fans of any other NFC North teams should shut up. The Vikes were clearly the best team in the division last year (without Favre) and are clearly the best team again this year. That works for me…

  19. BIG BLUE in tx says: Nov 18, 2009 4:16 PM

    Yeah, the vikes were a real powerhouse last year. Chilly was on the hot seat before Favre got there and he will be back on the hot seat when Favre leaves. Thank god for owners having a short memory!

    “ActionDan”:
    you just rendered yourself obsolete on this site.
    Darrel Bevel is the offensive co0ordinator, he calls the plays. Congrats idiot….you are asshat of the day!
    Wouldn’t it be nice to know a little bit about what you are talking about before you shoot your mouth off?
    Why would packer fans rejoice anyway? You have a turd for a GM that can’t seem to draft.
    Then there is “Coach” Mumbles.
    Teaching technique to his o- lineman in week 9, can’t seem to get those pre snap false starts taken care of, can’t keep track of his challenges,
    is playing one of his best defensive players out of position…the list goes on and on, yet you are making fun of a coach that has the respect of his players, has them at 8-1 , with a virtual strangle hold on the division…yeah he’s horrible…idiot!
    Can’t wait for the Packers to be relevant to the playoffs again…give them 5 years or so….stuck with Teabag and Mumbles..must suck to be a packer fan…..

    Yes. Favre will retire and the Vikqueens will remain sub-mediocre for years to come.

    LOL.
    They will regret this when the Vikqueens choke in their first playoff game (that will probably require an extension to sell out again.)
    NFC North REJOICE

  22. chapnasty says: Nov 18, 2009 4:17 PM

    What a difference a half of a season makes. Romeo Crennel (spelling?) got an extension after a good season as well, the next year he was canned.

  23. Nevisyakker says: Nov 18, 2009 4:17 PM

    Two years ago Childress was on everyone’s short list of coaches most likely to be fired, possibly even before the end of the 2007 season. He bought time last year by making the playoffs, even though it was a quick exit. Now he’s cashing in with a new deal. Amazing what winning can do for a head coach.
    Favre finally gives him a QB he can trust with the entire offense and the Vikings have gone from one of the most predictable, lowest scoring offenses to one with several options on every play, especially in the red zone.

  24. stetai says: Nov 18, 2009 4:19 PM

    Action Dan, you are a typical bitter Packer fan. Guess, what Brett got YOUR general mgr Ted Thompson a huge contract extension to guarantee his presence for years, and also did the same for Mike McCarthy. So how’s that working out for ya? Bwah-hahahahahahaha!

    When I was a kid I had a simple little toy which let you use a small magnet to move metal filings off the head of a smiling, goofy-looking guy’s head and turn him into a bald guy with a bad beard. Minutes of fun. Think about it whenever I see good ol’ Chilly.

  27. PervyHarvin says: Nov 18, 2009 4:19 PM

    To all Pack fans that say queer stuff like WOW,HURRAY Chilly stays on the Vikes,we are saved: LMAO Chilly has your number. He builds teams unlike Thompson. Looks like you be kissing Chilly’s white ass for a while! LOL Chilly out classes McCarthy by light years.

    bustbloodvessel –
    Oh we remember…thats why the Vikes are in the Super Bowl this year…TJack makes the playoffs…Favre should get them to the Super Bowl fairly easy.

  33. SMITASTIC says: Nov 18, 2009 4:26 PM

    This is the greatest thing to happen in Packer nation since Lombardi. Just wait till the Brett Favre fade(interceptions)and Viqueens choke in the first, yes I said first round of the playoffs. It doesn’t matter if the Packers are in the playoffs or not, watching the Viqueen collapse will be almost as good. Favre will then re-re-retire, Childress will be fired and Peterson will demand a trade. It’s the beginning of the end…

  34. wrath4771 says: Nov 18, 2009 4:27 PM

    The Vikings won the North last year in a division where the other three teams were awful. Childress’ extension should be tied to how long Farve plays because he’s only as good as Farve or Tavaris Jackson.

  35. Vince says: Nov 18, 2009 4:27 PM

    Die hard Vikings fan, and all I can say is I hope Farve is either back next year or Jackson is learning how to manage the game… He has all the pieces around him, no excuses left.

  36. JimmySmith says: Nov 18, 2009 4:29 PM

    Let it be a 10 year extension. I think most Viking fans know in their heart of hearts that Childress is basically a moron. He has a HOF QB, the best running back in the NFL, a defensive end in the running for D Player of the Year. Hell, a Pop Warner coach could come in and coach that team.
    Childress is a product of some good fortune. He is basically devoid of a personality, he is not half as smart as he thinks he is and lacks leadership qualities. In other words, he’s perfect for the Vikings and the contract extension will be a hotly debate subject the first minute after their playoff lost at the end of this season.

  37. Action Dan says: Nov 18, 2009 4:30 PM

    It’s not all Favre, at all.
    Biggest changes to the Vikes this year that have put them where they are now, in order of importance:
    1) Percy Harvin, especially in the field position battle. They would have at least 2 more losses this year without his ability to a) hit a home run and b) get them deep into opponent territy on returns.
    2) Better overall play from their LBs.
    3) Brett Favre (and his developing Rice)
    So like I said in my first post, this is good news for a Packers fan. In a year or two when Favre is gone and Percy inevitably loses his return ability, this is just another good team with a bad coach, versus now: a stacked team with a bad coach.

  38. Bird Man says: Nov 18, 2009 4:30 PM

    Although I really don’t have any interest in this story I like seeing Childress get an extension after reading Florio whine the last few years about what a terrible coach he is and how he’s going to get fired any minute. I’m sure Florio will dig up some isolated post where he compliments Childress and claim he knew all along that he would be around for a while.

  39. mpnieland says: Nov 18, 2009 4:30 PM

    I’m so sick of people complaining about Childress.
    Under Childress, the Vikings were 6-10, then 8-8, then 10-8, and now 8-1 this year. We won the NFC North last year and if anything just didn’t play up to expectations.
    He’s responsible for drafting Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, Cedric Griffin and the best RB in the league Adrian Peterson (although he kind of fell to him).
    He’s responsible for trading for Jared Allen, getting Ben Leber, Madieu Williams, Bernard Berrian, and Vishante Shiancoe.
    He’s built this team into what it is and the only thing he hasn’t done correctly was draft a QB to lead them. Put him in the same boat as countless other coaches who failed when trying to draft a franchise QB.
    The guy has done a good job and the fact is Minnesota fans just can’t wait to pounce on the head coach. No one will ever be as good as Bud Grant.

    Everyone hates on chilly, but look at what he has done since taking over the vikings..Every year they improve, and he drafted AP, Harvin and Loadholt…A rookie of the year and argueable the best RB in the game, Harvin is a strong candidate for rookie of the year this year, and Favre is in Minn. bc of Childress.. Give Col. Klink his props! Vikes fans rejoice, that the packers are terrible yet stick with Mcarthy..good times

  41. aloud2judge says: Nov 18, 2009 4:32 PM

    Chilly ain’t a bad coach. Good for him.
    And with or without Farvas they’ll still be a good team. T-Jax is only benefiting from having Farve around and when his time comes he’ll shut the naysayers up. A mobile QB with a strong arm that is “getting it” better than the likes of Vick or old ass McNabb.
    More comparable to a B grade VY. Maybe better arm but not as athletic in scrambling.

  42. docintherock says: Nov 18, 2009 4:36 PM

    Way to go Brad. Good job. You’re a good coach for the Vikings!
    I’ve been a Vikings fan for 40 years. Keep up the great work. He’s better than Tice or Denny Green.

  43. Action Dan says: Nov 18, 2009 4:36 PM

    Um, Childress installed this offense and has personally designed the vast majority of the playbook.
    Just because Bevell is the OC, doesn’t make this his offense.
    By the way, Vikes are not even close to the best rush offense/defense in the national football league. Not sure what NE is smoking when he looks at statistics.

  44. gopher says: Nov 18, 2009 4:42 PM

    I cannot believe all the crappy comments regarding Childress, lets think how good a ‘coach would be without Manning, Brees, Palmer, etc, etc. If all you people would think back to the great Vince Lombardi and how great he was a Green Bay but fell on his ass in Washington, do you think the players had anything to do with that. Of course Favre makes this team move, so what, it was Childress who knew he did not have a qb and he went out and got one.

  45. CutlerISaPussy says: Nov 18, 2009 4:44 PM

    Just seeing all the FudgePackers here with nothing left of their season but to hope the Vikings lose is GREAT!!!
    Because we all know what it means: Vikings are on top of the NFC North with it locked in for the year (only going up with each week)…..while the Green Bay Sackers have already sunk their ship with nothing left to hope for for their own team!!!! LOSERS IN GREEN BAY keep it coming.
    I, for one, love it. Only shows how incredibly pathetic your teams is!!! HAHA HAHAHAHAH!!!!
    Enjoy watching the Vikes in the post season while you team sits at home for YEARS to come!!!!! Have fun challenging the Lions for the cellar!!!!

    Everybody crapped on him for going after Favre, calling him every name in the book ( Florio).
    I guess Chilly gets the last laugh. Sure he makes a few boneheaded calls but what Coach is exempt from that ? (Belichick)

  51. PennVike says: Nov 18, 2009 5:02 PM

    Wow. Packers fans used to be concerned about winning football games. Apparently they have been reduced to faking happiness over other team’s head coaches getting their contracts extended (that’s what happens when your team wins games). That and hoping to see the Vikings collapse in the playoffs (which I guess is what you do when your team isn’t good enough to make the playoffs).
    Good stuff, Packer fans. Keep it coming if that’s what makes you feel better about your team not being any good.

  52. Ambrose says: Nov 18, 2009 5:08 PM

    Win now or else…straight from Forbes;
    The skinny
    The Vikings wooed QB Brett Favre for months trying get the future Hall of Famer to come out retirement once again. He finally committed and the franchise has Super Bowl aspirations. The Vikings biggest problem remains their stadium situation. The Metrodome is one of the oldest buildings in the league and keeps the Vikings at the bottom of the NFL’s revenue standings. The team has not gotten anywhere trying to get funding for a new building from the state legislature. If a deal can not be struck look for the Vikes to fill the NFL’s gaping hole in Los Angeles when the team’s lease at the Metrodome expires after the 2011 season.

  53. severs28 says: Nov 18, 2009 5:10 PM

    Do Vikings fans actually think you are a contender without Brett Favre? Whether you like it or not, the fate of this team lies with him.

  54. PervyHarvin says: Nov 18, 2009 5:11 PM

    Put away the fat girls,cheap beer and stinky cheese Packer fans. Get out the cry-baby,excuse filled crackers. They will go great with the “Chilly” that will be shoved down your throats for some time! Sucks to be you McCarthy Meatheads!

  55. purpleguy says: Nov 18, 2009 5:14 PM

    Once again folks, what did you expect the largely classless and myopic cheeser posters to say — that it was a good move? Here, they spend all their time trashing Klink’s intelligence and actions when the biggest news about Green Bay’s head coach lately has been canning a maintenance guy and being so frigging stupid he couldn’t even keep track of his challenges. Yeah, they ought to be dancing in the street in Wisconsin.

  56. goJags says: Nov 18, 2009 5:21 PM

    We can’t help but think of Jon Gruden’s comments on Monday Night Football when he said that Brett Favre creates jobs for coaches that work with him.

  57. Contra says: Nov 18, 2009 5:27 PM

    HAHAHA YES! Vikings locked in as NFC North Powerhouse! For those of you posting that “the rest of the NFC rejoices” then get this, Chilly has improved each year not only in record but in building a SOLID team. The sun has long faded for the Packers and the Bears whereas the Lions never saw the sun to begin with. SKOL VIKINGS!

    …………………………………………………..
    McCarthy won’t get fired until Thompson does because that would mean Thompson would have to admit he made a mistake, well one of many.
    This is why I hope Green Bay loses all it’s games, even an 8-8 season keeps these A$$ Clowns around for another year.

  59. EasyDrinkingBuschLight says: Nov 18, 2009 5:28 PM

    And to Packer fans saying they love this cuz they’ll go 2-0 against the Vikes every year, I think you are forgetting that you’ve lost the last 3 in a row and are 1-3 since Favre left your sorry ass team. Enjoy that. Chilly may be a questionable game caller but the man has built one hell of a roster, and if they just get a QB this roster will be solid for a long time.

  60. Fan_Of_ Four says: Nov 18, 2009 5:30 PM

    Joe Montana couldn’t save Mangenious’s sorry a$$.

  61. bluestree says: Nov 18, 2009 5:30 PM

    I think the discussion of whether of not Chilly is a good long term choice for the Vikes is missing the point. The Vikes need a new stadium badly! Your revenue stream is not flowing. And going into an uncapped year and a potential lock out the next, well, let’s just say that’s not going to make Minnesota taxpayers any fonder of big pro sports teams. There’s trouble in River City with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for “pulling out of town”. I think Pablo Cruise said it best “What you gonna do when she says goodbye?” You’d better quit working on Packer fans and start working on your next door neighbor.

  62. johnko says: Nov 18, 2009 5:31 PM

    Here a fun tip.
    Google “site:profootballtalk.nbcsports.com packer preseason”
    Read all the cheesehead bloggers old posts with their predictions for this upcoming season for the Vikings and the Packers. Shows you how much stock anyone should put into anything they have to say about football.

  63. JimmySmith says: Nov 18, 2009 5:32 PM

    Let me see if I can summarize the Viking fan base response thus far, yes, Childress is a cross dresser but their boyfriends/significant other is even worse, yes, he can’t call plays but they can’t recognize a good coach after Tice, Green and others and yes, it is fine with them that a man who never won a playoff game gets an extension.

  64. stetai says: Nov 18, 2009 5:33 PM

    Hey “goJags”, follow Brett’s coaches in NFL history and no one has gotten coaches jobs more than him over the past 17 years with any other 17 year span.
    Add up all the money in extensions, etc. for his coaches? fuhget about it. If the Jets defense had played the way THEY played the first ten weeks of the season, then the Jets would’ve been in the playoffs and Mangini would still be in NY.
    Brett can only do so much. While he’s the final piece to put him over the top, Brad put his ass on the line to bring in a lot of guys like Jarod, AP, Hutchinson, Percy, Greg Jones, etc.
    Chilly deserves an extension no doubt.

    No, no, no, no, NO! Please don’t let Childress ruin my Vikings for years to come.
    Childress is a moderate coach when he has talent like Peterson and Favre to bail him out of his sad play book and horrible play calling. But Favre won’t be around forever (well, actually he probably will), and Childress simply does not know how to coach a team with a quarterback like Jackson.

  67. bustabloodvessel says: Nov 18, 2009 5:46 PM

    Hey daryll hurst, it’s called building on something ya retard!! did your team even make the playoffs last year???
    wrath4771, It’s funny how the Packers were touted to win the north easily last year, but you sit here and say the other three teams were horrible. In fact, they didnt lose much in the way of free agency, so they have the same team pretty much this year, and were being picked to go deep into the playoffs. What happened to that?
    lbpackfan, don’t hate because your legend didn’t want to play for your poorly run team. I don’t care how much support the fans give the Packers, they have quite possibly the worst GM and head coach tandem in the league. I have never made it a secret I wasn’t very happy about Favre coming to the Vikes, but you just don’t let that guy leave your franchise. IF we do make it to and win the Super Bowl, the Packers fans won’t know what to do since the only true smack they can talk is the lack of trophies in our case, even though they haven’t had one for about 13 years, and 40 before that. So keep hating and thinking the Vikings are moving to LA, we will be quietly winning games and proving that OUR coach is freakin MILES better than yours!
    Stick that in you pipe and smoke it bitches!!!

    I’m a Packer fan and my dead honest opinion is that they should wait until after this season to give him the extension. If he can take all this talent and translate it into a Super Bowl, then more power to him. But a coach’s true worth is how he performs in the playoffs – regular season wins are mostly meaningless. If the Vikings don’t fade, then it’s a testament to Childress and he should be rewarded. BUT WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE SEASON.
    And for all those saying Favre got Thompson and McCarthy their contracts – Favre also was the one that faded down the stretch and threw the season-killing INT in the championship game. Thompson won GM of the year and it’s not all because of Brett. Not saying it’s all TT – it’s a combination of his moves and Favre’s play that got them to the Championship game. But to say they rode Favre to new contracts is ridiculous.

  69. juggernuts says: Nov 18, 2009 5:57 PM

    Apparently every Vikings fan on here believes that Childress is Coach/GM. He did not build this team, like all of you keep saying. He coached them.
    Did he have some input in the players they drafted and signed as FA’s? Probably, but most of you are acting like he runs the entire operation.
    Last time I checked, Rob Brzezinski, Rick Spielman, and Zygi himself make the personnel decisions on that big ugly purple ship.

    I’m so sick of people complaining about Childress.
    Under Childress, the Vikings were 6-10, then 8-8, then 10-8, and now 8-1 this year. We won the NFC North last year and if anything just didn’t play up to expectations’
    Most pro scouts thought 6-10, 8-8, and 10-6 was underperforming for the talent the Vikes had. Hence the bad rap on Chilly from the media. It IS all about Farve. You live with him, and you die with him.

    You guys deserve all the credit in the world…you’re 8-1…and Favre is playing good.
    The sun is going to rise and set tomorrow in Packer land…I find it funny because of the success of the Vikings, the Packers and their organization are hosed. Give me a break. The Packers dont run on the failure/success of another team and organization. Yes, its a little weird seeing Pharv in purple, and that gives all the squirrely little Vikes fans reason to run their mouths. Good luck the rest of the way. Good luck to the Queens push for a new stadium.

    Childress and his team look pretty good this year. I enjoyed the Vikings beating the Packers in GB this year. The Packers made their fans look like fools. All the crying and whining by GB fans this year is just getting old. Now they’re turning on their precious TT/MM. Not very loyal GB fans. I thought you were a higher order of fan that stuck with your team no matter what. Truth be told GB fans are no different than any other fan base in the NFL.

    Just a reminder for those myopic Packer Fans who keep saying Favre was to blame for the loss to the giants in the NFC Championship Game.
    Buress made Al Harris his biaotch in that game.
    Instead of making an adjustment McLardy sat idly by and watched Harris get schooled.
    Grant ran for a measly 39 yards.
    Bush fails to recover a fumble when he was the only guy within ten yards of the ball when it was loose.
    Favre wasn’t alone in that game.

  77. Tdk24 says: Nov 18, 2009 6:23 PM

    I would make his contract dependant on how long Favre is a Viking. Chili sucked before Favre and will do so after Favre.

  78. veistran says: Nov 18, 2009 6:29 PM

    This is the same guy that opted to punt with 2 minutes left and no time outs when he was losing thinking he could get the ball back. The same guy that hitched his wagon to TJack. He may gather talent but he certainly isn’t a football mastermind.

    First of all, your blog sucks big time, what are you , about 12? way to go, why not just put pictures of owl tattoos, you’d probably be better at it. secondly, HOW DARE YOU TALK DOWN ABOUT ANY OTHER COACH IN THE LEAGUE, or the UFL for that matter? Detroit has been absolutely terrible in every aspect of the game, for over 50 years. the fact that your team is even allowed to continue in the league is simply because the other owners like having a tune up game against a I-AA team. the lions are a joke, well, if the vikings win a superbowl, and then fail to win one for the next 5 years ill be happy as a pig in shit (or a packer fan in bed with their sister) I will hand write a thank you note to coach childress if that should happen, if nothing else because it will give rejects like you and the rest of NFC north team fanbases nothing to run your imbred mouths about. the vikes are going to dominate this division LONG after favre is gone.
    The cutler deal honestly set the bears back by about 10 years (see herschel walker to see what a bad trade can do), and will probably cost lovie his job, no continuity means no chance over the long run, plus their defense is about gone in terms of age, so they are out for a bit. the packers a complete joke without favre, don’t take my word for it, just ask the bucs. and the lions are the joke of the NFL for 50 years running, they have about as good of a chance of turning it all around as the raiders do of making the playoffs this year.
    I can feel for lion fans and the pain of watching their team suffer for their entire lives, but to have the sheer audacity to come and run your mouth in regards to the current division champs resigning the coach that got them there is beyond the pale, get a clue and move on, you actually make lions fans look worse than their team. enjoy your 2-33 record or whatever its been for awhile now.
    @ the rest of the haters, perhaps seeing one of your sucky coaches actually do something with the talent on their team is in order before talking smack about chilly. any coach can only be as good as the talent around them, and yet somehow MM managed to f up some good players (see shell shocked rodgers and terrible OLB kampman) and lovie managed to blow a franchise on a QB he can’t coach and let a window close on a defense that was actually good. but yeah, all chilly’s done is rebuild a franchise and fanbase, win the NFC 2 years in a row and put a team on the field that can beat ANY team in the NFL at ANY time. but yeah, keep trolling you turds.

    This is very, VERY bad news!!! Considering that Chili’s biggest contribution was to push George Paton to select T -(Where the Hell is My Receiver) Jack, you’d all better reconsider to whom you allocate player personnel credit. It is astonishing that some of you in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, where the cows are scared and the girls are lonely, who actually give Chili credit for the makeup of the team. Hey you “NICE” people of MinneSOOTAH, take a look at the staffing and titles of the Vikings front office and give Paton the credit he is due. Chili – argh – when that sad excuse for an actuarial can correctly call even a quarter’s worth of plays then he should be given a big new contract for the Anoka High School Tornados football team. Just watch Favre on the sideline after another ill-conceived set of calls – he looks as though he’d like to pull a fan out of the stands and have them call then next offensive set. Fear not Tornados fans, the Wilf”s have a great new plan that will scuttle any hope of a new stadium for the Vikings and that will keep those Anoka players dreaming of the possibility of winning State – they’re going to give ‘ol Chili not only an an extension but double his salary to boot!!!
    Enjoy these final weeks with Farve, with Chili at the helm every game’s going to be better than the next…

    It means that Brad Childress will be the coach when the franchise moves.

  93. Bob Loblaw says: Nov 18, 2009 9:11 PM

    Ben away from my computer and haven’t read the 90+ responses, but I can guess what most of them say.
    So I’ll defend Childress on the fact that people say that Brett Favre and/or the amount of talent is the ony reason the Vikings are winning ….
    Childress deserves almost all the credit for the talent. He has the final say and most influence over who to draft (remember him flying down to Florida to meet Percy Harvin?) and what free agents to sign (including personally recruiting Brett Favre). He’s not the GM or Personnel Director, but Childress is the person most responsible for who is on this team.
    So if you think the Vikings are only winning based on personnel decisions made from March through August, he still deserves credit for that even if you do not agree with his coaching from September through January.

  103. Ambrose says: Nov 19, 2009 10:42 AM

    uhhhh…juggernuts, for the record, Favre is not an ex-Packer. He’s a former Falcon, a former Packer, and an ex-Jet. Your take doesn’t fly too far.

  104. tjstyles says: Nov 19, 2009 10:50 AM

    Many people seem to think that Childress was personally responsible for every acquisition we have made since 2006; so make him GM. His handling of his other responsibilities, which are equally or more important, have been average at best.
    People like to talk about the winning records since 2006. From .375 to .5 to .625 to .888 (percentages show this year more accurately than win-loss numbers). Well, I would like to show a couple of other numbers. Defense against the run since 2006: #1 to #1 to #1 to #6. Rushing offense: #16 to #1 to #5 to #10. In 2007, we had the #1 defense against the run and the #1 rushing offense. Give that the Bill Belichick and see if he goes 8-8. Think Tony Dungy would sit at 50% with the best rushing team in the league? You think Bill Cowler would not have the team in the NFC Championship game?
    Frankly the Vikings are stacked. We have deep talent at basically every position. We have a Hall of Fame quarterback. Our secondary is a little shaky, but the Patriot’s secondary was old and busted in their 18-1 run, too. We have the best RB in the league, and a serious contender for Rookie of the Year. There is even a little talk from the analysts of our DE getting MVP this year.
    But we aren’t putting away opponents like the Patriots did two seasons ago. Our defense is going on vacation around the 5 minute mark of the second quarter, and its a crap-shoot as to whether they are coming back before the end of the game. This is Childress’ problem. The coach has to keep the players’ heads in the game. Granted, players should be able to keep their own heads in the game, but the coach is there to keep them focused if they start drifting off course. Childress doesn’t do that. He simply banks on Peterson or Favre making the big play so that everything works out in the end.
    And I think it is funny how easily people dismiss the play-calling deficiencies. That is perhaps the most important aspect of a coaches job; at least at the head coaching level. Even if you aren’t calling the plays yourself and your coordinators are making the final decisions, you have to make sure they are the right decisions, and fix it if things go awry.
    Childress seems to think that he shouldn’t have to make adjustments to win because the team is so deep, but that is why he is not a high-caliber coach. Recognizing talent is one thing; harnessing it and making it effective on the field is another.
    Childress has bought us a couple of good seasons with Favre, but then what? Childress clearly has no intention of designing our offense around our talent. In every game they show Favre’s stats out of the pocket, yet Childress never seems to increase his time out of the pocket. Jackson was always better outside the pocket and quite a threat on the move, but Childress never allowed him to move with the ball. This won’t change. Favre and Peterson (and most likely one day, Tarvaris) will have to make the best of a poor play book and even poorer play calling for the rest of Childress’ extension.
    So, here is to hoping we continue to have the best Running Back in the league and a clear Hall of Fame Quarterback to lock us up for the NFC North.

    Hey Juggernuts, he isn’t a Packer, he is a Viking. I’m sure that burns you nuts when you think about it. If we do make it to and win the super bowl, you have nothing to hang over Vikes fans, we have something to hang over you. We won with a quarterback you thought was all washed up.
    tjstyles, what people fail to remember is when the Vikings were number one against the run, they were getting torched for almost 300 yards a game in the air. So what if we aren’t the best against the run anymore, I feel we have a better overall defense. We aren’t first running the ball, but we have a better overall offense, and it’s not just because of Favre. How can you say he makes no adjustments? Have you seen any of the games? The team seems to click a little more in the second half. Sure the had a few bad fourth quarters, but thats part of the game. Learn some football before you post, you look like a tard when you don’t.

    and for those saying childo is great in the draft, is rick spielman not still employed as the vikings gm? if it indeed is childo, i will give him props in picking up a few good players.

  109. Beer Cheese Soup says: Nov 19, 2009 11:47 AM

    Tjstyles hit this one on the head.
    Persnally however, I feel this is truly great news. I had hoped this would happen for a while now, but I never would have thought it could this soon.
    I can’t speak for all of Packer nation, but I’m certainly rejoicing. Once (if ever) Favre hangs it up, The Vikings will be back to mediocrity for years to come.
    Look at my own team for proof of what can happen when you give a coach (or GM) an extension based on one successful season on Favre’s shoulders. Now we’re either out eight figures with nothing to show, or stuck with these incompetent jackoffs (which is what even most Viking fans were calling Childress before this season). I love it.
    If there is one downside to all of this, it’s that, like Barry Sanders, Peterson will now probably never be able to play to his full potential. We’ve only seen the tip of his iceberg so far and that was impressive enough. The man could easily be HOF material some day, if allowed to, but Childress’ schemes and Bevell’s playcalling have always handicapped him. Now he’s stuck in that same system for the foreseeable future. That’s a real shame, and an inexcusable waste of talent.
    I really fail to see how any Viking fans are seeing this as being a good thing.

  110. juggernuts says: Nov 19, 2009 11:58 AM

    Chickenfoot, thanks for putting words in my mouth. Did I say anywhere that the vikings are good because of Brett? I don’t think so. In fact I think Brett is playing well because the rest of the team is good (I just puked in my mouth a little when I typed that). Without the threat of Peterson, he would not have the time he is getting to make those throws.
    All I am saying is that even if they win the Super Bowl (they won’t) that history is going to remember Brett Favre as a Packer, period. Do you think he will go into the Hall as a viking? Not a chance.
    For the record a big reason the Packers are not doing so well is that Rodgers is holding the ball too long. I’m not a hypocrite and you’re the asshole.

    Under Childress watch:
    Resign: P. Williams and Winfield
    Sign Free Agents: Hutchenson, Allen, Barrian, and Favre
    Draft: Greeway, Peterson, Rice, and Harvin (among others)
    8-8 to 10-6 (playoffs) and now 8-1
    Sounds like a good coach to me.

    Its amazing to me how every applauds Chilly’s deal as a blessing for the rest of the league. Really guys? If I remember correctly we were NFC NORTH CHAMPS last year WITHOUT Favre.

    If the Vikings win the superbowl, that is what he will be remember for. Leaving Green Bay, ending up in Minnesota, and winning a super bowl with the hated rival of the team he used to play for. Rodgers holding the ball too long only accounts for about half of the sacks he takes, the o-line is the rest. I guess that defensive line is doing a bang up job though, huh? You are a freakin tool if you think Rodgers holding the ball is the ONLY problem the Packers have.

    To all fellow football idiots,
    This is Supersuckers officially announcing his retirement from PFT due to the garbage being slung on here on a daily basis. To those I have owned….I hope you learned something from your failures on here. You people are the bottom of the barrel in the world of Pro Football Fans. Gods Speed

    ================================
    Like I said earlier we won’t have to worry about that because it won’t happen.
    I never said it is all Rodgers fault, I was responding to some other idiot who said I wasn’t blaming Rodgers that I was blaming the team. Yes the GB offensive line is playing horribly, the receivers have dropped too many balls, the running backs can’t find any holes, the defensive hasn’t put any pressure on QB’s, the special teams have given up to0 many big returns, and the coach and gm are useless.
    This is like arguing with my brother’s kids or something. Frustrating as hell!
    All I have said is:
    1. Childress isn’t solely responsible for the vikings success.
    2. The vikings are good and it isn’t only because of Favre, but partially.
    3. The packers aren’t as good and it isn’t only because of Rodgers, but partially.
    4. The vikings will not win the super bowl.
    5. Most people will remember Favre as a Packer 20 years from now.
    Say all you want, but all of that is true or will be proven true.

    Ok one more before I go for good. below is a copy from another thread JCannon…a Minnesota viking fan. This is one of the many reasons I am leaving this free falling site of bottom feeders. Viking fans…this is one of your own….I am embarrased for you all.

    I’m still wondering WTF Godell was thinking putting the pro bowl right before the Super Bowl. I am petitioning for Viking’s fans NOT TO VOTE Viking’s fans into the pro bowl. What happens when one of our best players gets injured before the super bowl while playing in the probowl?

    Did I see a comment from the HydraPart6?
    NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO
    Hydra-I thought you had fallen into a parallel universe and all was right with the world. Yo know everything. Please go find Supersuckers immediately as he knows nothing. You 2 should have a great conversation.
    But please keep it about football. Scared cows & stinky fat chicks in LA have little to do with it.
    Chilly’s extension is a non issue to me–although I hope he get’s one. I really want to see what he can do without Favre. Best thing can happen to the Vikes if they hit another draft at QB which works out like Pervy or Peterson.
    My hope & concerns lies in the fact that MM & TT are gone from the Packers at season’s end and their replacements aren’t worse, Favre retires, my stock portfolio climbs, hunger is no longer an issue in this world, stem cell research allows quad & paraplegic’s to walk again, we get a cure for Alzheimer’s & cancer, Iran doesn’t get Nukes & world peace.
    Sorry if this duplicates. I think my first one went to that parallel universe where I thought Hydra had been banned to.

    Do you fools really think T-Joke will be the starting QB of the Vikes next year?
    No wonder you clowns are mocked all day long “Fat Packer fans = 99% of GB”

  122. Ambrose says: Nov 19, 2009 2:12 PM

    It can’t be stated any more clearly…..and I will say it again. Childress’ contract extension should depend on winning the SuperBowl, nothing less. If he is the one that went to bat and “got his man”, played the role of personnel director for his own benefit, then “his man” has got to get it done. This is all-in, on many many levels. If Childress gets a longterm extension before that happens, he will be the luckiest head coach in the league, because they will have to go right back to developing a new starter (Favre will likely retire if they come up short.) The wagon is hitched to Favre. Favre has many horses to help pull it but he is in the lead position and if he doesn’t lead them to a SB victory, the experiment fails. And that is what this is….an experiment. A desperate experiment. There was no long range foresight in play here. I can’t blame them for going after Favre because he is better than what they had, but just because they have a good record to this point in the season does not mean that it wasn’t an act of desperation. Not only bottom dwellers get desperate. This is a desperate team. Their current record helps keep their fans from thinking about what happens if they fail, which is nothing more than a temporary diversion. That is why their fans seem mostly angry and defensive. If they win the SB, Childress stays, gets his extension, the city may even get some public consideration for a stadium, and Favre may come back. If Childress’ agent can pull this off, he should get 50% instead of the normal 10%.

    “one of the greatest sports franchises in the world.”
    I don’t even think they crack the Top 7 in North America. Too many great storied teams in Baseball and Hockey to even consider the Pack among them, sorry but no! One of the best among Football, sure I’ll give you that but far from the world of sport.

    GOOD RIDDANCE. “The garbage being slung here on a daily basis”?! That’s what this site IS! It took the dude how many months to figure that out?

    That is absolutely hilarious. Normally I do my best to rip apart such moronic posts, but in this case, I have no idea where to even start. I’ll just leave it alone and continue laughing.

    I pray for the same things every single day myself. Well, I care less about your portfolio, but otherwise, absolutely. Now that Suck “retired”, there’s not a lot I wouldn’t give in this world to finally be rid of Thompson, and maybe cancer after that.

    Beer Cheese-
    play close attention if The Hydra returns. I’ve heard rumors that he is Supers alter ego.
