Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has to be happy today that he’s finally got Randy Moss as a teammate.
But that doesn’t mean he’s happy about everything in Minnesota.
Michael Silver of Yahoo reports, citing sources inside the Vikings’ locker room, that there’s growing tension between Favre and Vikings head coach Brad Childress.
That’s the latest in a long line of reports that Favre doesn’t think particularly highly of Childress, and Childress knows there’s a perception that Favre views himself — not Childress — as the one who calls the shots on offense. At his press conference today, Childress was asked whether Favre might just disregard Childress’s instructions and tell Moss to go long from time to time, and Childress responded, “We’re already talking about a mutiny?”
We’re not talking about a mutiny yet. But there are still 13 more games for Childress to become the latest coach to decide that Moss’s talent doesn’t justify the headaches he causes.
On the other hand, there are still 13 games for Favre-to-Moss to become the best passing combination in the league. As Silver quoted one unnamed Viking saying, “I think it’s all or nothing. It’s either the missing piece and we go all the way, or Moss takes on Chilly and this thing blows up by the end of October. There’s no C grade on this one. It’ll either be an A or an F.”
