Brad Childress knows where to get Brett Favre information

B. Childress.jpgBrad Childress texted his buddy Brett Favre on Friday, but had yet to check for a response.

ESPN’s Ed Werder asked the Vikings coach what Favre has been up to lately.

“I know that Brett’s still doing what he’s doing down there. You probably would know more about that, Ed, than I would.” Childress said.

Why yes, that’s probably true.  We also hear that Chris Mortensen’s voicemail is a great place to check for information.

  1. Cripes, Florio, give it a rest. Imagine if you posted a story on every other team as insignificant as the ones you post on your beloved Vikings. What a mess. Here’s my advice: grow up, get over the teenage passions, be fair, be balanced, acknowledge that the Rams were a great great team that kicked your Vikings in the arse, because they were talented, and because Bruce is HOF and Martz out-thunk you. Generate contacts at other teams besides the Vikings. Think big, Florio, and try to cover the NFL, young man. Vikings? Not so interesting.

  2. And yes, I understand. Let me be explicit. Stop making your employees kiss your arse by writing meaningless Vikings stories.

  3. pointless story. just a reason to put favres name on a headline. sometimes i wonder where these writers got their credentials as journalists (obvious typos, grammar errors, pointless stories like this one, ect.)

  4. My 2010 List of why Chilly is like a 14 year old girl…
    1. Both like to text ….like all the time
    2. Both can’t help but to text boys and anxiously await a response.
    3. Both are afraid when Ben Roethlisberger visits their town.
    4. Both have bigger breasts this year than the last.
    5. Both hope that guy they keep texting takes them to this year’s big dance.
    6. Neither one knows much about football.
    7. Each have major mood swings
    8. People are always talking about them behind their back.
    9. Both have creepy weird men that want to meet them.
    10. Neither of them will have a job next year.

  5. Chilly and Brett are both working hard learning how to count to 12 and not throw back across your body during critical situations in the 0ff-season.

  6. Keep the Vikings stories coming! Paul Allen kept it real for you years before anyone knew who you were, and the Vikes are on a good roll these days. The haters can go wallow in their sorrow that their team isn’t getting enough attention for their preferences.

  7. I agree with the non story part of all the responses.
    However, I want to officially go on record in saying that Brad Childress is one of the top three best and most qualified coaches in the league.
    I will only defend that proclamation with those that display the football intelligence to enter thought provoking, experienced and intelligent dialogue in regard to the statement, and the game of football.
    Prove me wrong.
    With facts.
    Not bullshit.
    If you talk bullshit (of which most are incapable of not doing) you will be ignored and prove your insignificance.

  8. Why can’t people who post comments check to see who wrote the article before complaining? Attention: Mike Florio does not write every single article, nor does he dictate what gets written. And geez, people, it’s the offseason. There’s bound to be a lot of fluff written, because there’s not a lot going on. So quit griping or take a vacation.

  9. Rumor has it that Ryan Leaf ate white buttered toast for breakfast this morning. Headline it up! Nice “article” you idiot

  10. Childress is a swarmy little SOB, isn’t he? Whenever I see his bald head, sleazy smile and pretentious personality, I want to run to the Internet to make sure he isn’t on the sex offenders list for my neighborhood. My god, he’s obnoxious.
    But more to the point, the man has no pride and knows no boundaries of shame. This little love affair with a 41 year old QB isn’t going to end well so kissing BrINT’s ass and bending over and grabbing your ankles (a very familiar Saturday night ritual for most Viking fans) will never produce the payoff he’s looking for. But on the bright side, it will buy him another season of employment in the NFL and maybe that’s all he cares about because it sure isn’t in the best interest of the team.

  11. Childress is pissed at Peterson for missing one day of camp but he bows at the alter of favre?
    Way to build your team chemistry, chilly.

  12. I find it amusing that Chilly is upset that Adrian Peterson is staying away, but is kissing the hind-quarters of his starting QB who won’t even return his calls………

  13. For those of you who love and respect Favre here is your chance to have a limited edition signed print and help abused and homeless animals at the same time. My local humane society in Ocala, FL is selling on ebay a limited signed print of Favre and Persey Harvin. There are only 44 of these prints in the world and you can own #17/44. All of the money from this sale will go to the Humane Society of Marion County. Go to link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270588748520&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT This print shows Favre holding Harvin in the endzone after a touchdown. So many fans love Favre for his friendship and love of his fellow teammates and this print shows that team spirit. Bid now and help abused animals get a new leash on life.

  14. jimmy,
    You are pathetic as always. For you to write that long of a comment from a story that was completely lacking any substance is astounding. As always….. GO F#@K YOURSELF!
    Bob, same goes for you!

  15. i literally come here for the back and forths from the Vike and Pack fans…been a Packer fan since birth (28 years) and this is truly more fun and insightful than the story, it really is…

    12 men in the huddle AFTER a timeout in the NFC Championship game. How’s that?

  17. You have literally wasted 5 mins of my life that I can never get back by printing this useless piece of garbage. When you can print more meaningful stories that have substance and character let me know. Until then, stay away from your computer!!!!!!

    You forget what else it gets him.
    Another division title and playoff run.

    Childress is a great coach, isn’t he? Whenever I see his bald head, sleazy smile and pretentious personality, I want to run to the Internet to pull up his picture and jerk off. My god, he’s hot!
    But more to the point, the man has great pride and knows how to beat the Packers. This little love affair with a 41 year old QB is the same one I had when he played for us. This is going to end well, probably a championship, then I will be ass kissing and bending over and grabbing my ankles (a very familiar Saturday night ritual for me and my Mom). But on the bright side, at least my Dad does her first, maybe that’s all he cares about because it sure isn’t in the best interest of the family.

    I couldn’t agree more Jimmy, nice to see your purple pride so early in the AM!.

    Either you just started watching football last season, or your a complete idiot. Let me help you out, Childress is 3-5 against the Pack. That’s not very good.

    Geez, here is something I have never seen before, a Viking fan declaring something they didn’t earn yet. Call it a paper championship, something the Viking fans claim every spring but at the conclusion of the season, reality sets in, another year, another season without a Superbowl win.
    You would think that the Viking fans would try something different, shut up till you win one. But that is just my wishful thinking because we all know if that were to happen, we would never (as in ever, ever) hear from you again.

  23. The chinks in the armor are showing. The vikings locker room is over brINT’s drama queen act. Bye Bye team chemistry. Let the finger pointing begin.

  24. I know that Brett’s still doing what he’s doing down there

  25. Childress-Dumb and Favre= Dumber
    Chilly huh? Cool nickname. Wake up and smell the coffee….Favre is over the hill, yesterdays news. Hasn’t won the whole enchalada since 96….Move on for Pete’s sake. Draft and develope a QB. Steal one from somebody else, whatever. Favre, Favre Favre. Madden must be sick he retired?

  26. @ employer,
    I respect you defending your coach, but it is woefully misguided.
    Where do I begin?
    Great coaches do have different rules for superstars, but they don’t allow them to run the team. When an all-time great coach tells a player to come out of the game, he comes out.
    Great coaches don’t make school yard mistakes [12 men in huddle] at crunch time.
    Great coaches don’t allow a superstar to hold their team hostage in the off-season. They would move their team into a more advantageous position than to be at the mercy of one player. Let’s face it, their season rides solely on a 41 year old man’s performance.
    Who wants to put their eggs in THAT basket. Not what an all-time great coach would do.

  27. @Pull and seal
    That was Thahi’s bust. flat out.
    @bigrig
    Contrary to what others beleive. Favre does not run this team. As with any successful company ownership and admin, (coaches) run the company. The good one’s embrace employee input. (players)
    Ask ONE player on that team that Reeaaally has a problem with Favres criteria. What does he need, more practice to learn the system? He knows the system better than anyone in the league. It’s like this. Not only does he understand the conceptual development of the system, but he tactically implements it. That, my friend, is an enormous advantage over simple scheme development, as the coaching staff is payed to do.
    It’s kind of like an engineer actually building the bridge he,s designed. With his own hands. You know what I mean?
    And he’s 40 and first ballot HOF. Kind of like the chief surgeon showing up for that bunion removal.
    On Favre coming out of the game, That was coach player dialogue. Kind of like this. Childress-“Hey, your gettin’ your ass handed to you. Don’t you think it’s a good idea to take a knee on this one?”
    Favre “Hell no we’re gonna win coach!”
    All right, be honest, what would you do . Pull your HOF leader after a comment like that? It’s not like he told Wasswa Serwanga to take a shower. I challenge ANY great coach (except maybe Lombardi) to pull that one off. And much more problematic? Truly win back his confidence after you’ve yanked him. Really, who does that?
    No one that’s coaches in this league for long.
    Eggs in one basket? You heard it hear, and yes I am about to say it.
    DO NOT underestimate Tarvaris Jackson.
