Chilly sings at the Combine

Among the unusual things that can be seen and heard at the Combine comes an example of Vikings coach Brad Childress showing why he’s a football coach, and not a singer.

Then again, maybe he can ask Tom Coughlin for advice on how to become a better singer.

He might need it.  If another season ends with a boneheaded move like 12 men in the huddle on the biggest play of the year, Chilly’s income stream might involve a street corner, a tin can, and whatever talent he can display in order to persuade people to put coins in it.

  1. How far does he need to go in proving that he’s nuts? We all knew long ago that he was lousy with words and quirky as hell, but now he’s dressing in drag, wearing a visor-wig, and singing at his press conferences.
    I’m not sure Viking fans can handle much more.

  2. There should be a counter on this site to check how many people write “Florio this isnt football news!”

  3. Chilldo is just practicing for later this summer when he pulls his own John Cusack by standing outside Favre’s window holding a boombox over his head while singing Journey’s ‘Don’t stop believing!…’

  4. Chilly may be quirky, but you have to admit this team as improved each year since he became head coach and the off the field antics by the team are almost void.

  5. Occam!! (I say with a stern look). Just because you are anonymous here doesn’t give you the right to act like a Raider Fan. We are all civilized here and I will tell your mom. Oh, and if he could go back in time..I’m sure your old man would have sprung for the name brand condoms.

  6. Florio – is there a reason you constantly harp for this guys head? He took a perrenially underachieving Vikings team and brought them within an inch of the SuperBowl.
    You want to blame the loss on him and the 12 men in the huddle, but what about the interceptions and fumbles that were such a huge part of that game? The Vikings players put themselves in the position to lose that game just as much of not significantly moreso than Childress.
    Its blaitantly obvious you have an issue with the man, but perhaps you should try some journalistic integrity for a change and recognize the mans accomplishments.

  7. It’s hard enough to win in this league, let alone winning with this moron leading you on the sidelines. The Vikings have to outplay every opponent by a wide margin to make up for the significant deficiencies they have in their sideline headsets.

  8. Ah yes… a little tribute to Howard Lee and Bat Masterson… only Chilly would do this. I’m glad that things are care-free and not worrisome in Minnesota these days… We don’t have to be all serious, pissy, and under pressure at these things cuz we’re pretty much set as a super bowl contender… just waiting for Brett to fly up next August. 🙂 It’s a good life, really.

  9. Okay Florio we get it, you don’t like Childress as the head coach. He’s the only one you rag on out of all the 32 coaches. Yes we all know you’re a Vikings fan, we’ve heard you admit it to Paul Allen on KFAN but c’mon already! Let it go, he’s the coach and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. F@#$ing cry baby!

  10. As a coach, Chilly is mediocre. The Vikings win despite Chilly, not because of his on-field coaching abilities. However, you do have to give Chilly some credit for his personnel moves. But, those moves would not include moving up in the draft to take Tarvaris Jackson and Ryan Cook way early.

    L-O-L. The only one? Try being a Bears fan. At least your team wins.

  12. As a coach, Chilly is mediocre. The Vikings win despite Chilly, not because of his on-field coaching abilities.
    His play-calling is boring, predictable (the opposing D knows what’s coming much of the time — Peterson repeatedly, futilely run into a wall of defenders, anyone?) and doesn’t utilize the players’ talent, and his time management is piss-poor.
    Having said that, however, you do have to give Chilly some credit for his personnel moves. I say “some” because he also made some boneheaded moves such as moving up in the draft to take Tarvaris Jackson and Ryan Cook way early.

  13. You guys can poke fun at him he deserves it. But the guy can coach and I don’t care what any 12 year old on these boards has to say about it. Vikings out coached their two playoff opponents and really only lost on fumbles by three different players to the Saints.

  14. I love the fact that all the people who post are smarter then most coaches and judge who is good and bad as their playing skills, it is kind of like writers, insiders who think they have all the answers.

  15. There you go again. There is nothing Childress can do to make you happy, until he resigns or is fired. Call it what it is–vendetta. Are you going to make sure that his children don’t become coaches as well?

  16. Theres a lot worse coaches than Childress. Mike McCarthy, Romeo Crennell? He’s improved every year. blah, blah, blah…

  17. I love my coach. Super Bowl trophy. Hot guy. Cool shades. Unleashes hell. (Okay, well, forget that last one.) Wouldn’t trade him for anyone in the league. But for pure entertainment value, you can’t beat Chilly. His humor’s always just over the head of most of his audience.

    “6-8, 8-8, 10-6 (Div. champs), 12-4 (Div. Champs), 14-2? Record speaks for itself.”
    I agree and add the list of players Chili has brought in: Jared Allen, Bret Favre, Sidney Rice, Steve Hutchenson, Adrian Peterson, Bernard Barrian, etc

  19. I’m not judging Childress as a coach but as the freak human being he is. First of all, his normal press conferences are weird as hell. He’s like that sophomore in college that learned a fancy new word and is so desperate to use it. Plus, he talks with this weird low voice, mix it up with the midwest twang and it becomes cringe-worthy.
    Drag, singing etc. I mean come on, I know the front office speaks for themselves but the HC puts a face on everyone in management. It’s embarrassing them and the proud Viking nation. STFU

    When did Childress become GM or VP of Pro Personnel? The only person he “brought in” himself is Favre after he busted out the kneepads and the limo driver hat.

  21. His looks give me the creeps; he appears to be a pedophile that just hasn’t got caught yet.
    Lets’ inventory his assets; ???? Let’s see….ok, none.
    Now let’s inventory his negatives; cross dresser, 12 men in the huddle, refused to shake hands with a winning coach, dumb as dirt.
    Glad he is with the Vikings and got a contract extension.

  22. Who is dumbest?
    Chilly…
    Farve…
    Pervy…
    Oh crap they are all worthless.
    LA viqueens 2011!
