Report: Chilly ripped offense at halftime, hurled post-game expletives at Favre

As it turns out, Chilly isn’t such a chump after all.

Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that, both before and after the “heated discussion” that Vikings coach Brad Childress claims wasn’t a “heated discussion,” Childress targeted some heated words at members of his team.

Per Jensen, the offense got it at halftime, and Favre himself was the target after the game, presumably after Favre aired the dirty laundry to the media.

At the half, Childress reportedly cursed at the team and said it’s “laughable” that the Vikings consider themselves a Super Bowl team.

Though a kinder, gentler Chilly emerged on Monday, Jensen writes that “all is not well between Brad and Brett, and the primary difference centers on the quarterback’s penchant to check out of runs and into passes.”

And so, as several of you have suggested in the comments, it sounds like there’s finally a schism in Minnesota.  Favre might not have known what the term meant in August, but we’ve got a feeling that he knows it now.

    …and the next Farver meltdown begins.
    Someone needs to remind him he’s just a player, not the coach.

    God we suck.
    Maybe we should move the team to L.A. and start over…

    I was born with a schizm. Chilly can STFU. He’s my bitch, after all.
    Oh, don’t forget to buy Wrangler jeans this Christmas. Did I tell you that I just love the game, and gunslinging sure is fun?

    Farve is more overrated than Cal Ripken Jr.

    All those “Favarians” that ripped Thompson and McCarthy for not kissing Brent’s ass now know why they quit playing his game.
    1.) Favre thinks he runs the team
    2.) Rodgers is a better Qb
    Even a milk toast like Chilly can’t take it forever. Favre, and his sock puppet Darrell “I once won a Rose Bowl” Bevell, are calling the plays and running the show.
    I think Chilly needs a little “male enhancement”. Maybe then he’d have the stones to stand up to this primadonna.

    It’s funny the double standard involved. If this happened with Payton or Brady (and it has before), people would be calling them such “competitors” and “brave” people for wanting to stay in behind a line that couldn’t protect them. When Favre does it, it all of a sudden becomes prima donna thing.
    lol, and people say Favre gets favorable treatment in the press. He hasn’t gotten favorable treatment in years.

    Thank you for hands down the best comment I have ever read on here. You sir are a genius

    I know Vikes and Pack fans like to go back and forth about Favre and blah blah blah. I’ve come to one conclusion. The fans of the packers that have hatred for Brett Favre are more displeased by the fact that they found out they did not know their idol. He wasn’t what they thought. It came to light that he’s more about himself than anything. The Vikings did not need a qb to throw 30 TDs. They needed someone to manage games and get them out of tight spots if needed. Favre seemed content to play this role at first but now its evident he needs to be the center. The guy is completely full of himself and the whole aw shucks attitude doesn’t play anymore. Chilly is not nearly the first coach that Favre walked all over. Hopefully he’ll be the last.

    Brad + Brett = “Bratt”
    So when Brett and Brad have another “heated discussion” we can say “Bratt had another Spat”
    Yeah, that sounds good.
    And so the goes the downfall of the future LA Vikings….

    I’d be mad at that offense too, it was terrible. Nothing wrong with a coach barreling down on his players in an attempt to right the wrongs. Don’t try to tell me for one second that not every coach uses expletives on and off the field (with the exception of Tony Dungy), because it’s pretty commonplace.

    Oh my GAWD, we have a serious issue here! Ooogga! I wonder if they’ll break up! I hope someone nice like Brent gets the pekingese and window treatments!

    I always knew Favre was a spoiled whiny diva but man, he is taking his shenanigans to a ridiculous level. It’s too bad, he could have been considered one of the greats.

  13. mike says: Dec 22, 2009 9:15 AM

    The Vikings would be 7-7 without Favre!! If I were the Vikings Coaching Staff I’d continue to Kiss Favre’s Ass from here to Mississippi!

    Favre will find out the hard way….DO NOT mess with Chilly.

  15. raybin says: Dec 22, 2009 9:16 AM

    I’d say that at least this means he’ll finally be gone from football for good after this season, but I’m not so sure. You’d think that after repeatedly undermining two head coaches and proving himself to be an extremely talented, but egotistical boob who causes as many problems as he solves, he’d finally be radioactive to all the teams in the league. But Favre is the herpes of the NFL, so he’ll probably find another way to come back again.

    The only schism is the one that Lord Florio is inventing to get hits on his precious site.
    Notice how when the Vikes were doing so well, he didn’t say anything bout how well Favre was playing, seldom mentioned he could be considered the MVP at 40 years old, etc?
    Childress says nothing happened, but Lord Florio needs the hits so he continues to make a big deal out of nothing cause he knows all the Favre haters will come out of the woodwork, making multiple comments, driving up his hits so NBC signs on for another year.
    The site was once at least half decent. Once picked up by NBC, Florio has done nothing but become a corporate shill, says anything he thinks will get people to click.
    Sad really…….

    I keep thinking viking fans will learn that they don’t hand the trophy out till February, viking teams peak in November. Well at least they had Brett around to mentor T-Jack. I am laughing at you viking fans.

    =================================
    If it makes you feel better, go ahead and believe what you want, J4a1.
    In YOUR opinion, Rogers is better than Favre. Just the fact that it’s even close either way though, proves that Rogers will have the career Favre has had.
    After, you’re comparing Rogers to a 40 year old.
    He left GB, get over it.

    It’s a trust thing. Brady wouldn’t disobey his coach and coach BB would never give Brady more authority than he can trust Brady with.
    They are ont he same page. Brett however, does what Brett wants to do regardless of what the HC wants.
