Glazer: Moss not waived yet, still not informed of move

One of the strangest stories of the year is about to get stranger.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that, although coach Brad Childress has informed the team that Moss has been waived, the move has not yet officially occurred — and Moss (as we reported earlier) still has not been informed of the move.

And here’s the part where we speculate on what may really be happening.

It looks like Childress has acted on his own, presumably after the scar on his soul from the T.O. episode of 2005 (Childress was the offensive coordinator in Phily at the time) began to throb like Harry Potter’s lightning bolt.  (Look, I’m not a Harry Potter fan.  But anyone with a kid under the age of 16 knows about Harry Potter, and also has at some point heard about the scar on his forehead that throbs whenever Darth Vader shows up, or something.) 

The rock-scissors-paper hierarchy in Minnesota hasn’t been clear since the Fred Flintsone look-a-like named Fran Foley was fired for falsifying his work history.  The fact that Sage Rosenfels (a Rick Spielman favorite) was traded in favor of Tarvaris Jackson (a Childress-Foley-Rob Brzezinski draft pick) suggests that Chilly has the juice.

Or maybe he really doesn’t, and maybe Chilly has tried to dump Moss as a way to bring to the front burner the persistent rumors that Childress could soon be dumped in favor of defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.

If Childress can set this up as a Moss-goes-or-I-go decision, then it won’t look like the head coach was run out of town for, you know, sucking at his job, but that he took a stand based on principle, and that others in the organization didn’t share his views about not having Moss on the team.

Either way, the current situation surely has Vikings fans longing for the simpler days of DUIs, Whizzinators, and sex-and-booze cruises on Lake Minnetonka.

    No way, I’ll take coach gaffes that (if true) will more than likely lead to their demise, over high profile player misconduct any day. If at the end of the day, Moss is still a Viking and Childress is replaced with Frazier, this will be the best monday for football news in a LONG time!

    Man, I hope this is true. I hope it becomes a showdown between Zygi and Chilli.
    Zygi has a terrific candidate in Leslie Frazier to take over as head coach. If they go ahead and hire him (I hope, I hope, I hope) then the Rooney rule is fulfilled.
    Please, oh, please fire Chilli now!

  3. RaiderClay says: Nov 1, 2010 5:04 PM

    When this is done can we please stop talking about the 2-win Vikings. They aren’t relevant this season…

  4. Pack_Attack says: Nov 1, 2010 5:05 PM

    This lack of leadership was evident in their dealings with Favre. The inmates are running that place. They dont know it yet, but they have crashed and burning.

  5. 12+81=7 says: Nov 1, 2010 5:05 PM

    As a Patriots fan looking in from the outside, this is by far one of the funniest stories ever. I bet Packer fans agree with us in that this is great to watch. From the awesome press conference, to Chilly going rogue, to the thought of Moss bumbling around in Boston somewhere, still unaware of being cut, this is all just great. An added bonus is that the Patriots look like the smartest team in the league.
    Sorry Viking fans, I know this must be a nightmare. I feel for you guys, really.

    Loved your last line!
    Why am I always feeling like Childress isn’t as bad as everyone says? Yeah he had a learning curve his first year, but everyone thinks he is the same coach as that year. He’s gotten better. He hasn’t won a Super Bowl, I get that. He’s a descent man, military dad and all that. I guess he makes a lot of money, so don’t care too much about it. Are you sure Frazier is a good head coach material? I don’t get it. Not after this season.

    .Vikings have had the worst luck of any Pro team in sports history
    ** 4 Superbowl losses
    ** 5 straight losses in NFC Championship games
    **Korey Stringer dies in training camp.
    **The love boat incident
    **Gary Anderson who had just completed the first perfect regular season in NFL history (not missing a single extra point or field goal attempt the entire year), missed a 38-yard attempt with less than 2 minutes remaining in NFC championship game that most likely puts Vikes in Superbowl in 98.
    **in 2003 Arizona’s last second touchdown on 4th and 28 against Vikings eliminated Vikings from playoffs. The moment of Arizona’s touchdown was actually the first moment the entire season in which the Vikings hadn’t led their division. The Vikings became the second team in football history to miss the playoffs after getting off to a 6-0 start
    **The “Hail Mary” pass Drew Pearson caught against the Vikes in 75 NFC championship to give Dallas the win in the final minute.
    **Jim Marshalls wrong way run
    **The Herschel Walker trade in which Vikings gave Dallas three 1st rounders, three 2nd rounders, plus a 3rd and a 6th rounder in addition to 5 players. Walker lasts only 3 seasons in Minnesota
    .
    **Vikings despite being favored, The Vikings lose 41-0 in NFC championship game in 2000.
    **Green Bays Antonio Freeman makes one of the all time great miracle catches in overtime to defeat Vikings in 2000
    ** With 19 seconds remaining in the 2010 NFC Championship game the Vikings call a timeout on 3rd and 10 at the Saints 33 yard line. They had one timeout remaining, so the smart money was on them running the ball and hoping to gain four to five yards — thus setting up an approximately 45-yard field goal as time expired to win the game. On that next play the Vikings are penalized for 12 men in the huddle. The penalty pushed them out of FG range and most likely cost them a trip to the Superbowl. See below for nail in the coffin on the next play
    **2010 Favre`s 4th down 4th quarter interception with seconds remaining vs Saints in NFC championship puts New Orleans in Superbowl.
    I`m sure there are things I missed but this is why I believe the Vikings have had the worst luck in Professional sports history

    As of 5:10 ET Moss is still on the Vikings web site roster.

  10. Jackson says: Nov 1, 2010 5:11 PM

    Not informed yet? Then why has Moss’s agent already spoken on the topic. Of course Moss has been told, he just hasn’t commented on it.
    It’s the beginning of the end for Chilly in MN. Boneheaded decision! You trade a 3rd rounder for Moss, then waive him 3 weeks later???
    What’s the point of that?
    Chilly has proven time and time again he doesn’t know what to do as a head coach. From his blind devotion to T Jack, to his misuse of challenges, his fractured relationship with Favre..it’s time for Chilly to go!

  11. CliveRush says: Nov 1, 2010 5:11 PM

    fear not Vikings fans. The Patriots were a crazy and disorganized team prior to the Busch family buying the team. They brought Bill Parcells in and things have been pretty good since then. The team was sold to Bob Kraft when the league promised the St. Louis people a team. (LA) The Kraft Family as many know were big fans prior to purchasing the team and owned the stadium. Get an owner from the area with good morals and judgement. You will need a lot of money #1 and a new stadium #2.

    “Zygi has a terrific candidate in Leslie Frazier to take over as head coach. ”
    The guy who hasn’t coordinated a sack or any pressure for that matter on the QB in the last three games is a terrific candidate?
    I don’t think so. The team needs to start fresh.

    As a Falcons fan I feel for you Vikings fans… It’s not fun when your team is (rightly) the butt of jokes and is constantly screwing up in new and unusual ways.
    It will get better. I promise.
    Think about where we were when Vick got busted, Petrino quit midseason, etc.
    I mean, it sucks that I never see any news about the Falcons, but I guess it’s also good that it’s not THIS kind of news. Have faith that things can’t really get much worse.

    With all the turmoil that surrounds the Vikes right now, they are only 2 games out of the division lead with Arizona, Chicago (twice), Buffalo, and GB upcoming…Need to win and win now, but not thinking about draft picks quite yet..Does anyone really think the bears or packers are gonna run away with the division? Hell the Lions are still in it

    It’s on the NFL.com transactions page. I don’t think they would put that there unless notified by the team.
    Way to go, Jay… getting Vikings fan all excited about a possible Chilly firing.
    Sorry Vikes fan, Zigy will let Childress coach out his contract.

    My source is saying Glazer is right, but Moss will be waived. The info was leaked early, and Chilldress is questioning the staff on who leaked it. Might be a firing coming soon.
    Stay tuned for more late breaking Viking info. I’ll be on it for the PFT community!

    How quickly the supposedly mighty have fallen.
    Pervy, Robert Ethen, VikingPrincess, paulitik, among others…where art thou?
    Is thy crumbled dream still alive somewhere in a dusty, untouched room with #4 and #84 jerseys and viking memorabilia from a time less painful?
    Does thy heart still beat purple and gold?
    Hath Prince Childress stolen the last ounce of gold lining that was on the horizon by letting go of the second chosen one, whilst Lord Favre (the first chosen one) tends to his broken (and humiliated) parts?
    Most importantly, does thy memory of the question haunt more today than ever (WHY DO YOU PONDER PASSING) now that we see that you will not go back to where you once were, a time not so long ago…
    Does the pain of seeing the hated thieves who paid off the refs (got sympathy from the refs for Katrina/had the game rigged because the NFL wanted New Orleans to win/played dirty/stole the game in broad daylight) not suffering along side your fallen brethren who can only now watch as another year is wasted of AP’s youth with a losing record, pain thy soul till the end of the season and beyond?
    DO NOT FRET! Oh Viking faithful! For ye has now learned the saying that Saints fans have known to recite for years: THERE’S ALWAYS NEXT YEAR.
    Only problem is, next year might be in L.A., good luck.

    Hey Mike,
    There are crazy rumors flying around here right now but here is a statement by his agent.
    “Randy is very sad to find out about being waived by the Vikings this morning,” Moss’ agent, Joel Segal, said in an e-mail to the Star Tribune. “He has and always will remain fond of the fans in Minnesota. We will let the process of the waiver wire take its course and we will move on from there.”

  46. airmoss18 says: Nov 1, 2010 5:33 PM

    I love the people who say that Leslie Frazier would be a much better coach than Childress. What a bunch of rubes. How the hell do any of you know how good of a head coach he might be? You don’t.
    First of all, Leslie Frazier has interviewed for vacant NFL head coaching positions seven times now, and in each and every one of those situations, another coach was chosen ahead of Frazier. I wonder why that is…? Could he just be really bad at job interviews? I doubt it.
    Secondly, did you see the Vikings (Frazier’s)defense yesterday against the Patriots? Every time the team needed the defense to come up with a big play in the fourth quarter, they failed. Is that necessarily Frazier’s fault (especially when Asher Allen missed an easy tackle on the diminutive Danny Woodhead)? No, but nor is it Chilly’s fault when Favre turns the ball over 14 (!) times in the first six weeks of the season.
    Chilly is an average coach, and he has led the Vikings to a 2-game win improvement in three consecutive seasons coming into this one. His team dominated the Saints last season and likely would have one if any of the following four things wouldn’t have happened on January 24:
    1. They don’t turn the ball over five times
    2. Favre doesn’t throw that awful interception on the Vikings final drive
    3. They don’t get the 12th man penalty on the final drive
    4. They win the overtime coin toss
    Chilly is ultimately at fault for exactly one of those causes (and RB coach Eric Bienemy is partially blame as well, since he was the one who told Tahi to go on the field because he didn’t hear the personnel package change), and if any one of those things didn’t happen, the Vikings likely would have gone on to the Super Bowl.
    I’m a Vikings fan, but I’m embarrassed by the Viking Rube Nation and their constant intellectually laziness. They simply blame Chilly whenever anything goes wrong, and for him to now be blamed for this Randy Moss situation pushes this conversation to the point of absurdity.
    According to several team insiders (as reported by KFAN’s Paul Allen about 27 minutes ago), Moss and his attitude were crippling the team’s morale on the practice field, in the locker room, and during games (watch yesterday’s game and tell me how much effort Moss exerted), and the coaches couldn’t let another player (in addition to Favre) have the power to negatively influence the other 52 members of the team.

    Chilly’s last stand. He took a hit the last two years with how he handled the favre stuff. He has a reputation of being a pushover. He has had players call him out in press conferences, etc. He is simply doing this to get fired, so he can ultimately say that the Favre fiasco was mandated by upper management and therefor not his fault. He knows he is done after this year anyway so he is just trying to fix his reputation in the hopes of getting another job in the NFL. I doubt seriously that it will work.

    Look out NFL…Moss is heading back to the Pats for a 3 year deal for peanuts just to win a ring. At the right price they can afford to put him him back in the lineup in special packages and he will give every DC the Pats face nightmares.
    As far as the Vikings go there is no sense in having the most prolific deep threat in the game if you don’t have a QB who can throw the ball far enough, but they should have known that 25 days ago.
    The Vikings are a mess. Childress and company make Al Davis and Jerry Jones look pretty good in comparison.

  62. TitletownUSA says: Nov 1, 2010 6:28 PM

    I love Chilly. He is an excellent coach. There is no need of getting rid of him. Hell, he will even send half the team down to a swamp to pick up a Senior Citizen for qb. That Viking DL and Offensive line is also impressive. Zero sacks in three games. Jared Allen got his payday and has decided to take it easy. Poor Brent “glass Joe” Favre. He is sure taking a beating. Damn, it feels good to be at the top of the standings!

    I’ll say this, the Vikings have become the most interesting team in the NFL, but for all the wrong reason. To Vikings fans, I wish I could say it couldn’t get any worse, because actually it still could, but at least in the long run it’ll get better.
    Chilly is the high school teacher and Moss is the insolent kid who acts up and disrupts class. What he doesn’t understand is that kicking him out of the room doesn’t fix the problem, it just makes it worse.

    Leslie Frazier yea I don’t think so he has been passed over more than a dried up hot dog. Favre gone Chilly gone, fresh start OH YEA!
    ________________
    Yep, fresh start in 2011. Every coach will be begging for this job! Can you imagine a new coach aquiring all this talent! They’ll be lining up like Bears fans do for wellfare checks, LOL!!!

    Latest reports are that Childress did not advise ownership or the team’s administration of the decision of Childress. Apparently, Chilly advised the team first. If Moss isn’t claimed via waivers, the Vikings have to eat his $3-4 million salary.
    The last days of Chilly are at hand–he may not survive the next 48 hours in his current employment. Although he has absolute authority over the roster and had the authority to make the unilateral move (reportedly/allegedly), his decision making was absolutely unacceptable–like most of his game time adjustments. It’s just a matter of time….

    I don’t get it. Is he, or is he not on the waiver wire? You can’t be kinda, sorta, maybe.

    If Moss breached the contract by not participating in post-game press coverage [and giving notice that he would never participate in post-game press coverage], would the Vikings be relieved from the $6.5 million obligation to Moss if Moss is not picked up on waivers by tomorrow?

    Moss has been mailing it in since he got here. From what I’ve seen so far, he couldn’t carry Sidney Rice’s water bottle.

    Remeber when Simmons compared Moss to having a hot crazy girlfriend. He was wrong. The whole Vikings organization is the crazy girlfriend and all Vikings fans are stuck with them forever.

    They are 5-2 sans-Childress. He has single handedly blown games for them. I’d bet if the Vikings were to “waive” Childress, they’d make the playoffs from here on out.

    Did the interview that he did after the game with New England cause this? He was very emotional, saying about how much he missed being a part of the Patriots team. He also said Belichick was the best coach, etc and I actually felt sorry for him. He seemed like he was extremely unhappy in Minnesota and would do anything to leave. I guess he got his wish. I do agree that NE should pick him up, he seemed to have learned to appreciate what he had and maybe won’t make the same mistakes again with a team that he actually likes.

    Ziggy Fire Childress Move Frazier to Head Coach.
    It really is that simple.

    Randy Moss may be a clown, but he’s also a talented wide receiver. In contrast, under Brad Childress the Minnesota Vikings has transformed from a football team into a circus.
    When a football team turns into a circus, you don’t fire the clown, you fire the ring master.
    It’s time, Zygi. Put Leslie Frasier in charge before the Gophers get him.

    At least this didn’t remind you of an episode of Glee like it did for MDS.
