It’s getting even hotter for Chilly in Minnesota.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Vikings owner Zygi Wilf is “not happy” with the decision of coach Brad Childress to cut receiver Randy Moss.
At a time when rumors already are swirling that Childress could be dumped for defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, the notion that the guy who signs the checks doesn’t like the decision of Childress to dump Moss doesn’t bode well for the fifth-year head coach.
Even if Childress has full authority over the 53-man roster, it’s not prudent to use that authority haphazardly. Childress needs to know when it makes sense to give folks advance notice as to moves that will cause a ruckus. The fact that he doesn’t understand this basic concept of organizational dynamics makes us wonder whether he’s smart enough to coach an NFL team.
His players could probably point to various other tangible examples to support that same point.
