Vikings fire Brad Childress

Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress has been fired.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports first reported, and the Vikings have confirmed, that Childress has been fired.

This morning the Vikings announced that Childress would meet the press for his regularly scheduled weekly press conference, which some assumed meant he was safe for at least another week.

But that assumption was incorrect: Childress is out.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier has been named the interim head coach for the rest of the 2010 season. Frazier and Vikings owner Zygi Wilf will address the media this afternoon.

    Now when are they going to waive Favre???

  2. Matt-NC says: Nov 22, 2010 12:16 PM

    2 Green Bay opponents, 2 blow outs, 2 coaches fired. Who’s next?

  3. roethlisberger says: Nov 22, 2010 12:16 PM

    Hope Favre is next.

  4. steelerdynasty2010 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:16 PM

    ‘Bout time. The time for this was weeks ago

  5. PFTiswhatitis says: Nov 22, 2010 12:17 PM

    Its about time!

    See what you get for chasing Brett Favre’s ego and then having no spine to reel him in.

    Well, at least he didnt name his son after the great ego…achem Mangina.

  6. pooflingingmonkey says: Nov 22, 2010 12:19 PM

    Enjoy the soap operas, Chilly.

  7. contra74 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:19 PM

    YES!

    Its about time. Lets clean house! I love the Vikings but it needs a clean house.

  8. purpleman527 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:20 PM

    Thank You !!!

    He should have been canned 3 weeks ago after the Moss debacle.

    (To you dumbass packer fans: “it was the refs fault.” I guess mike smith gets fired next week right?)

  9. Panda Claus says: Nov 22, 2010 12:20 PM

    Dang! Why couldn’t they waited until after the Redskins game to make this move?

  10. 25seasonsticketholder says: Nov 22, 2010 12:20 PM

    Too little, too late for this season.

  11. FinFan68 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:20 PM

    3 weeks too late

  12. cobrala says: Nov 22, 2010 12:20 PM

    I’m already-interested in seeing what head coach would be willing to bring chilly on-staff after all of this. I’m sure someone will – but will he be OC or what? Certainly not QB’s Coach.

  13. mean13 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:21 PM

    Had to go. Vikings are a soap opera.

  14. melikefootball says: Nov 22, 2010 12:21 PM

    Childress did not have a prayer to keep his job. Bringing Farve in this year started his shovels of dirt for his grave early and often. Farve has been a great player but all his antics the last few years have cost more jobs as he gets his million a game for what, throw int and games.

  15. purplejesus28 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:21 PM

    I gotta check the calendar… did Christmas come early this year?

  16. ThatGuy says: Nov 22, 2010 12:21 PM

    Praise be Jesus/God/Allah/Buddha/Ditka/Whomever you worship. The Minnesota Vikings season has officially been a success in my mind now that they have succeeded fulfilling my long time goal of being rid of that man.

  17. thirdandgoal says: Nov 22, 2010 12:22 PM

    Now there’s a shock.

  18. zaggs says: Nov 22, 2010 12:23 PM

    Well that move will surely cut down on the teams turnovers (sarcasm).

  19. clayswife says: Nov 22, 2010 12:23 PM

    Hey Minnesota,

    You’re welcome.

    Love,
    GB

  20. skolvikes1 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:23 PM

    About time!

    Thank you Green Bay! You helped us get rid of the bad!

  21. wetpaperbag2 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:23 PM

    Geez…and it took them THIS long to fire Chilly? They might as well release Brett Favre while they’re at it. He has NOTHING left in the tank.

  22. jayr955 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:24 PM

    HA! That’s two coaches this year! RIP Phillips and Childress!!!

  23. madmike66 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:24 PM

    Best day of our miserable season.

  24. cusoman says: Nov 22, 2010 12:25 PM

    There’s hope yet for this franchise. I don’t care what anyone here says, Zygi is the best owner this team has had, and today is day zero for rebuilding trust with the fans. Frazier has a good rapport with the team, so this could be an interesting end to the season. I’m not saying there’s much of a chance for the playoffs, but 2011 just got that much brighter.

  25. keyspirate says: Nov 22, 2010 12:26 PM

    Give Frazier a shot, but look for a proven winner for the long-term. Let’s find someone who has won a Super Bowl, not another first time head coach!

  26. Cheesehead Ken says: Nov 22, 2010 12:26 PM

    Yikes. Mike Smith better look out – that’s two straight games the Packers got the opposing coach fired after the game.

  27. karlsummers says: Nov 22, 2010 12:26 PM

    “Vikings Fire Brad Childress”

    Uh…you spelled Brett Favre wrong, because that’s who deserves to be fired.

  28. northerngolfdude says: Nov 22, 2010 12:26 PM

    now if we could only find a quarterback to lead this team……………………

  29. didiwags says: Nov 22, 2010 12:26 PM

    Took long enough!!! Maybe now we can rebuild!!!

  30. cusoman says: Nov 22, 2010 12:27 PM

    Oh, and thank you Packers… you don’t know it yet, but you did all us Vikings fans a HUGE favor by blowing us out yesterday. You may come to regret “keeping your foot on the gas” as Troy Aikman put it. Only time will tell.

  31. pittsburghsteelerz says: Nov 22, 2010 12:27 PM

    Between his royal championship game screw up and this year, I wouldn’t be surprised if he never gets another offer.

  32. rhodeislandpatriotsfan says: Nov 22, 2010 12:27 PM

    Childress “hitched his wagon” to Brett Favre and was just thrown overboard from the Vikings ship. Can “Ol’ Man River” be far behind—i.e., benched?

  33. Florios thong underwear says: Nov 22, 2010 12:28 PM

    And the implosion continues.
    Maybe they’ll end up tying with Carolina, San Fran, and the Bungles for the worst record.

  34. SpartaChris says: Nov 22, 2010 12:28 PM

    The Green Bay Packers have been renamed to the Green Bay Coach Killers.

  35. grousehawker says: Nov 22, 2010 12:28 PM

    Well, better late than never I guess.

  36. minnesconsin says: Nov 22, 2010 12:29 PM

    i feel badly for childress, it’s a tough time and you never want to see anyone lose his job. he’s not the most personable dude, but he never seemed like a “bad” guy either. Of course, this doesn’t mean he deserves to be head coach of a professional football team, which is an elite position.

    As a packers fan living in MN, I’m dialed in to the local sports media. I think Les Frazier has an enormous opportunity here. He’s been the head of a great defense for a while now — but the way that D has played so far this year, you have to wonder if he would’ve had a good shot at a head coaching gig this off-season? But with the interim gig, he has a chance to prove himself as a leader. Should be interesting to see what he does with it.

  37. sullijo1 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:29 PM

    Wow. Charley Daniels needs to write a song about this….

    Something about selling your soul to the Devil for Favre and Moss and then ending up thrown out into the gutter…..

    What a highly over-rated team entering this season….when are the so called “experts” going to get fired for making HORRIBLE NFL predictions each year?

  38. jerruhjones says: Nov 22, 2010 12:29 PM

    So when does Brett get fired?

  39. semperfi24 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:29 PM

    Hey Chilly, on the bright side, now you dont have to be “the guy” that ended Favre’s consecutive games played streak.

    It has got to come to an end, and it would be alot better of Lord Favre would take himself out of the lineup, like Cal Ripken Jr did, to lessen the backlash on Leslie Frazier….because there is no way they can have Favre start the last 6 games, you need to begin preparing for 2011, and that doesnt include Favre

  40. calloustongue says: Nov 22, 2010 12:29 PM

    Green Bay Coach Killers strike again.

  41. mattroark says: Nov 22, 2010 12:30 PM

    I’m a packer fan. I’m very sad to see him go.

  42. 25seasonsticketholder says: Nov 22, 2010 12:30 PM

    Niow this roster of players has NO EXCUSE.

    Play or shut up and quit the team.

    Let the league and your future employers see exactly what you’re made of. All rostered Viking players will be judged by these last six games.

  43. Adam Eaton says: Nov 22, 2010 12:30 PM

    The only thing left for this team to do is find a way to get Terrell Owens on their roster. Everything else drama wise has been covered.

  44. Sandra Lee's Cans says: Nov 22, 2010 12:30 PM

    About time. What’s the Rooney rule say about this scenario?

  45. packerrube13 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:30 PM

    As a Packer fan, this is very saddening news for me.

  46. akatdrake says: Nov 22, 2010 12:30 PM

    I’ve never been a huge fan of canning coaches mid-season, but might as well give Frazier an audition for next season… TJ or Webb to start now?

  47. bobbyhoying says: Nov 22, 2010 12:31 PM

    Maybe Brad should have been more likeable, like Wade Phillips. I’m sure that would have made his QB’s much better players.

  48. mikeflorio says: Nov 22, 2010 12:32 PM

    Favre and Allen are driving Chilly to the airport.

  49. pukey60 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:33 PM

    Does that mean he gets to keep the 9 million? If so, he should buy Brett Favre a yacht. So let’s see. Favre makes 20 million for ah, well its not exactly clear. But what we do know is that he won’t be lining up in the Super Bowl anytime soon. And so Chillys’ team implodes and he gets a boat load of money too. Is this a great country or what?

  50. antalicus says: Nov 22, 2010 12:34 PM

    They should just call it for what it is and play their QBs like they did in the preseason. Favre for 1 quarter, then Tarvaris and Webb for the rest of the game. This way Favre can get his 300 starts and they can at least prepare for next year.

  51. packerrube13 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:34 PM

    Man its unfortunate. Because the refs really gave that game to the Packers yesterday.

    That one call was ridiculous, and of course the NFL is against the Vikings.

    We lost, the Packer’s didn’t win

    We gave the Packers that game, that was their superbowl anyways.

    The league called us and “apologized” for more bad calls. Its weird though because I hear we are the only team they call… Odd.

    The Packers were playing dirty, they hit Favre way too much!

    Every turnover was due to missed PI calls…

    I’m sorry, but I am just filling in and making the comments of the not suprisingly absent Viking fans…. As annoying as it was last year and all of the offseason, I do kind of miss reading and laughing at the delusional, victimized fans.

  52. viperden says: Nov 22, 2010 12:34 PM

    I feel like a kid at Christmas… I hope he takes that Perkins Menu with him. He should have never been hired in the 1st place. He will never ever be a headcoach in the NFL again. The Vikings need a coach with a personality and not a stiff like Brad Childress. I wish he would take the time before he goes and helps Brett pack his stuff for the long trip back to Mississippi!

  53. chitown26 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:34 PM

    And number 4 is next.

    T-Jack tryouts for the rest of the season!

  54. myspaceyourface says: Nov 22, 2010 12:34 PM

    If they did this 4 weeks ago, they still might have a chance at the season. . . . . . . . .

  55. cdnmike says: Nov 22, 2010 12:35 PM

    There is a GOD!! So long Chilly!! Don’t let the door hit you in the acshe on the way out!!

  56. andyprough says: Nov 22, 2010 12:36 PM

    Packers – 2 for 2 in coach-killing games

    If they get a couple more coaches fired this year, that’s GOT to be some kind of record. Do they play Carolina and San Fran anytime soon?

  57. thehighhat says: Nov 22, 2010 12:36 PM

    The Green Bay Packers: The Coach Killers!

    Let’s hope they can do the same to my pathetic 49er’s in a couple of weeks so we can get rid of that ass hat Dingletary once and for all.

  58. pervyoccam says: Nov 22, 2010 12:37 PM

    I just heard that the Packers are considering hiring him as their next head coach…………….

  59. brentfarve says: Nov 22, 2010 12:37 PM

    Another coach gets fired thanks to Brent Farve. Pour the Koolaid out no superbowl win in the Queens again this year.

  60. dolphinatic says: Nov 22, 2010 12:38 PM

    Viqweens fans can start the healing process.

  61. droksid says: Nov 22, 2010 12:38 PM

    About time.

    Brett Favre is going to hold his press conference shortly. It will be one phrase.

    “Mission Accomplished”

    He will then retire.

  62. southridge23 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:39 PM

    Well Chilly the good news is you can always join the Bears staff…they love plugging former head coach duncecaps like you as assistants (just ask Mike Tice, Rod Merinelli, and Mike Martz) or the Eagles with Dick Jauron and Marty Mornihweig

  63. igottz5onit says: Nov 22, 2010 12:39 PM

    So how does the Rooney rule apply in this scenario? Can they just promote Frazier without having to do interviews?

  64. purpleman527 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:42 PM

    Time to kick Favre out as well. He gave it a try and failed. It’s time to move on.

    Bring on Joe Webb please!

  65. facebook.com/joesimmonscomic AKA Slow Joe (Bucs fan) says: Nov 22, 2010 12:43 PM

    This is what happens when you’re an intelligent football mind with an abrasive personality.

  66. drbob117 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:43 PM

    Probably the only way they could keep drama queen Brett focused for the last 6 games….Chilly is more suited to be a coordinator than a head coach, he lacks people skills.

  67. davidhare says: Nov 22, 2010 12:44 PM

    While I am glad that Childress was fired for what happened this year, lets not forget that the players are mostly to blame for the losses this season. The Vikings went from 6-10. 8-8, 10-6 and 12-4. I say Bench Favre now and start Tavaris Jackson for the rest of the year.

  68. jpmelon says: Nov 22, 2010 12:44 PM

    Should have been done the same week he let Moss go.

    The Vikings win/loss record doesn’t help this guys case, but the absolute worst thing he did was lose a future 3rd round pick for absolutely nothing.

  69. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 22, 2010 12:44 PM

    Its the big, bad, dirty Saints’ fault…they just hit us too hard last year in January and the refs with their bad calls…boo hoo, damn those Saints, they really did us in. Now we’ll never win a Lombardi like they have…whine, cry, sob…I can’t get enough of this Viqueen melt down! Please, please don’t stop posting commentaries of the biggest laughing stock organization in the NFL…please don’t!

  70. epping16 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:45 PM

    @cusoman: The Packers took out Rodgers with 7 minutes to play. That is hardly “keeping their foot on the gas” in the NFL. The game could of been alot worse.

  71. minnesconsin says: Nov 22, 2010 12:45 PM

    percent chance the bears implode and cap off a 7-9 season with an embarrassing blow-out loss at Lambeau, prompting Lovie’s dismissal? At this point, I’d say 50/50.

  72. drbob117 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:46 PM

    @southridge23: The Eagles and Bears are both 7-3, so they probably are fine assistants, just not good head coaches.

  73. jimmysee says: Nov 22, 2010 12:49 PM

    Darrell Bevell would have been a better choice.

    Vikings blow it again.

  74. pigpenrapeswomen says: Nov 22, 2010 12:49 PM

    I love how all the Vikings fans are “thanking” the Packers for blowing them out yesterday. Um, yeah, I’m so sure you enjoyed watching your football team get destroyed on national television.

    Anyway, as a non-Vikings fan, I would say that the firing of Brad Childress is totally meaningless if the Vikings do not bench Favre as well. Favre has only thrown 10 touchdowns this year as opposed to turning over the ball 22 times. Any other quarterback would have been benched a long time ago.

  75. ninerdynasty says: Nov 22, 2010 12:49 PM

    plz plz plzzzz fire singletary now.. He needs to go and never get a coaching job in his life ever again!

  76. bradshawlives says: Nov 22, 2010 12:49 PM

    Where are all the Vikings fans who were talking so loudly before the season? Where’s that Super Bowl appearance that so many Vikes fans was coming? “Book it” they said! Maybe they can sign Randy Moss when he’s a free agent.

  77. snarkygurl says: Nov 22, 2010 12:50 PM

    I’ll miss Childress….he was working out great for the Bears…

  78. mkepackfan says: Nov 22, 2010 12:51 PM

    I’m disappointed, but oh well. Merry Xmas Minnesota, don’t say we never got you anything.

    Sincerely,
    Wisconsin

    P.S. Thanks for the 2 Ws & the Axe (Bunyan’s Axe)

  79. johnnyb612 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:52 PM

    Seriously? I can’t even say the vikings made a mockery of brett favres last season? I didn’t even call them the biqueens! This site is so g.a.y.

  80. luvthatdirtywatah says: Nov 22, 2010 12:52 PM

    why was my post removed?

  81. cmstrick says: Nov 22, 2010 12:53 PM

    I would certainly hope that the Rooney Rule also applies to reverse-discrimination…

    Isn’t that right, Mr. Goodell?

  82. 4sacroc says: Nov 22, 2010 12:53 PM

    A dysfunctional franchise – one that has been mired in controversy for the better part of the past 20 years – gets even more dysfunctional …

  83. uncommon1 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:53 PM

    Zygmund would be wise to contact T Dungy. We all know that Dungy would use all of his facilities to help Frazier succeed, and the Vikes should try to bring him in at some capacity. Spielman and Brzeznski have done a good job with the draft and FA’s but Dungy would be an amazing GM, or VP of Personnel or whatever the hell the title is

  84. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 22, 2010 12:54 PM

    Maybe you goons should of done more than cry and whine during the offseason…how’s it feel to be the biggest joke in the NFL? LMAO!!

  85. hrmlss says: Nov 22, 2010 12:54 PM

    Maybe Frazier will be smart enough to force feed the ball to Petersen 30-35 times a game. And Frazier satisfies the Rooney rule, to the previous questioner.

  86. hrmlss says: Nov 22, 2010 12:55 PM

    And when comes the Brett to IR headline with a phantom injury he suffered during the game?

  87. shaggytoodle says: Nov 22, 2010 12:55 PM

    To you dumbass packer fans: “it was the refs fault.” I guess mike smith gets fired next week right?)
    ________________________

    No not Smith, but GB DOES play a 9ers team that is in quite a bit of a funk after that. The Vikings should be THANKING the Packers anyway, we help them out so much.

    Need a Kicker – Longwell
    Need a safety – Sharper
    Need a QB – Favre ( you guys wanted him and all that goes with it.)
    Want your coach fired… done

    Have fun paying him to go fishing while your sturggling to get a stadium.

  88. purpleman527 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:55 PM

    Hopefully, Chilly found out from wire reports and not from Zygi.

    Now, it’s time to watch Rodgers choke! AGAIN!

  89. wydok says: Nov 22, 2010 12:56 PM

    I’m not sure that many people are aware of this, but Brett Favre has been an undercover agent for the Packers for the past two years.

    Everything went according to plan.

  90. thepeoplesjunk says: Nov 22, 2010 12:56 PM

    thank you, about damn time….

    Now Wilf needs to call up Parcells or Dungy to come in and run this organization….. if they don’t bite I would even welcome “the chin” Cowher.

    I like Frazier, but I would rather Parcells or Dungy be allowed to pick the next coach…. at least give us some hope as a fan base.

  91. wam300 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:57 PM

    Great now get the hell oout of minnesota move to la and build a real nfl team.

  92. brenda77777 says: Nov 22, 2010 12:57 PM

    after listening to the radio broadcast…with allen selling his clothing line and many others giving away turkeys of hawking blue jeans over the past week, it is no wonder their priorities are way off in left field.

  93. 4sacroc says: Nov 22, 2010 12:58 PM

    For the record, Brett Favre has had a hand in getting the coaches of his last two fleecings fired – Mangini now Childress.

  94. andyprough says: Nov 22, 2010 12:58 PM

    $29 million for Chilly + Farvey???

    It’s like an old fashioned highway robbery. I’m sure Farvey can’t WAIT to get cut. He and Chilly can drink tequila shot toasts to Ziggy in Cancun and laugh their butts off

    ===================================
    Sure, because if the Vikings win, they would have resigned Childress to a 5-year extension.

    Childress was gone, whether now or at the end of the season. The Packers game may have only hurried the process.

  96. bobulated says: Nov 22, 2010 12:59 PM

    Why would the Falcons fire Mike Smith after they beat the Fudge Packers this weekend?

  97. jpmelon says: Nov 22, 2010 1:00 PM

    Did they interview any white coaches before making the selection?

  98. raidersteve413 says: Nov 22, 2010 1:01 PM

    what a shame, without bret farve the vikings probley would of only lost 2 or 3 games.
    His costly INTs ruined the season…
    To bad peynton is turning into farve

  99. shaggytoodle says: Nov 22, 2010 1:01 PM

    P.S. Why is that the Packers haven’t got any love for the way they have played the last three games. I know they have played a sturggling Cowboy team and a pathetic Minnesota unit.

    Packers defense has given up 10 points in the last 3 games!!!

    While the offesne is avg. 28 + during the span!

  100. brenda77777 says: Nov 22, 2010 1:02 PM

    If the running back had hung onto the ball last year like he has this year they would all have rings on their hands as well as in their ears. Sports is fixed. Do the math. Bad calls are allowed to stand even though cameras show better. Opposing teams are allowed to hold our lineman on every play. I am done with the Vikings. I am now officially a packer fan.

  101. brintfatre says: Nov 22, 2010 1:02 PM

    Chilly is probably on a plane to Dallas right now! Jerrah LOVES a yes man… only question is will he bring the dungslinger with him???

  102. theoriginalcaptainmarvel says: Nov 22, 2010 1:03 PM

    It’s about time. Childress was a terrible coach, and his stubbornness and ego were getting in the way and demoralizing the team. We had no receivers for most of the season because of Childress. It has NOTHING to do with Favre or Green Bay. The team quit 2 weeks ago – before the last GB game. With a decent coach we’d have beat GB twice for sure. Heck, we DID beat GB the first game in Lambeau; the refs admitted they screwed up 2 TD’s. So Pecker fans really shouldn’t be so arrogant. And Favre is not the problem. Geez, he just threw for 446 yards 2 weeks ago to save Childress that time. Hopefully Favre comes back, Rice gets healthy (a decent coach would have told him to have surgery in the off-season), and we get a decent coach.

    Childress is fired now everything is fixed in Minnesota…… Right?

  104. 4sacroc says: Nov 22, 2010 1:05 PM

    Chilly went from ….

    6-10 to 8-8 to 10-6 to 12-4 ….

    Brett Favre got Eric Mangini canned and now Childress.

    This team is rotting from the head down.

    It needs a leader at the top.

  105. rcali says: Nov 22, 2010 1:06 PM

    Two coaches have now been fired because the spoiled brats on their team didn’t earn their paychecks on Sunday.

    I love how Green Bay fans are stupid enough to honestly believe that they are solely responsible for the firing of both Childress and Phillips.

    Like the Pachers have anything to do with how terrible the rest of the season has been for those two teams.

    The Pack may be better than the vikings this year, but GB fans are still retarded.

  110. laxer37 says: Nov 22, 2010 1:12 PM

    Seems a bit premature.

    Chilly was just about to start trying.

  111. viperden says: Nov 22, 2010 1:13 PM

    Childress although fired today should have been fired YEARS ago after showing what a class act he was when waiving WR Marcus Robinson right before Christmas Eve 2006. Childress deserves this but it should have been years ago!

  112. theoriginalcaptainmarvel says: Nov 22, 2010 1:15 PM

    As a Vikings fan, of course I’m glad that Childress is finally out. But it was 3 weeks too late. I wanted Moss to stay and Childress to go. That being said, hopefully Green Bay keeps winning so they can have a schedule next year like we had this year. Make them play all the best teams and all road games in the first half of the season. So I hope they win a lot now…and I look forward to them imploding in spectacular fashion in the playoffs. That is an absolute given. Zero chance at a Super Bowl. Zero. I wonder if A-Rod can top his game-losing drop-kick from last year??? And right after missing a WIDE OPEN sure touchdown.

  113. wafflestomp says: Nov 22, 2010 1:19 PM

    As a Packers fan this is very disapointing news.
    We had hoped to keep Chilly in Minny for as long as we could.

    Just like we tried to keep Matt Millen in Detroit for so many years.

    Oh well, Cheers!!!

  114. stixzidinia says: Nov 22, 2010 1:19 PM

    That’s not only the 2nd Head Coach the Packers have gotten fired……it’s also the 2nd consecutive Head Coach BrINT Favre has gotten fired (Mangina and Chilly).

    Maybe Frazier will be smart enough to force feed the ball to Petersen 30-35 times a game. And Frazier satisfies the Rooney rule, to the previous questioner.

    ————————————————–
    So what if Wilf want to hire Frazier as the head coach and doesn’t interview a white guy? Are people going to be upset then?

    “percent chance the bears implode and cap off a 7-9 season with an embarrassing blow-out loss at Lambeau, prompting Lovie’s dismissal? At this point, I’d say 50/50.”

    Six straight losses? Not completely out of the realm of the possibility, but it would have taken a 2-12 season to get Lovie fired.

    Lovie has a year left on his contract, and they weren’t going to fire him and hire a second coach in the face of a 2011 work stoppage.

    At least the Bill’s haven’t quit like the Vikings and Bengals!!!! I liked Chilly as a person, saw the piece where he was overseas doing something with our troops and they suprised him and he got to see his son who is serving in Afghanistan. Seems like a great father. It’s something the Vikinigs had to do though, not much of a choice. Too damn bad they don’t take Favre with him, that dude is a cancer and plays for himself.

  122. banlarson says: Nov 22, 2010 1:33 PM

    The Wilf’s gave him free reign to build the largest coaching staff in the league. They gave him free reign to get a unlimited free agents and top talent. Only Childress could take that gift and turn it into chaos.

    Hopefully they scrap that “west coast” offense and build one that fits our talent…Rice, Peterson, Harvin, etc. They also need to scrap that zone blocking scheme and let those big guys up front get back to road grading.

    So long stiff, good luck with your retirement.

  123. j0esixpack says: Nov 22, 2010 1:35 PM

    Everyone still think that Childress “tricked” Belichick into trading him Randy Moss?

    Belichick got a third round pick and Childress got fired.

  124. dtrb10 says: Nov 22, 2010 1:36 PM

    Thank god! Now that Zigi has some experience he will get the Top coach out there and we will turn it around as early as next year.

  125. majikbullet says: Nov 22, 2010 1:38 PM

    This is no big deal for Packer fans…..If you haven’t noticed there defense has been a problem as well…LF might be worse than Chilly….either way not a long term solution for the Vikes so I’ll conclude by saying I hope they sign him to a long term deal to be HC. Pack, Bear, and Lions fans are praying for this.

    It’s nice seeing the Vikes team doing what the fans have for years…QUIT…….SKOL VIKES…LOL!!!

    3-7….pathetic

  126. faulkana says: Nov 22, 2010 1:40 PM

    I’m picturing Chilly in a wood shed. He is tugging at his beard, looking into the mirror and muttering another of his one-sided debates with Belichick to himself.
    That little Don Quixote duel of “equals” always cracked me up.
    In a way I’m going to miss that funny little moron.

  127. Panda Claus says: Nov 22, 2010 1:41 PM

    @jpmelon and the others concerning the Rooney Rule. That rule does not apply to interim hires, mainly because there’s not time to conduct a thorough search in mid-season. After the season the team would need to follow satisfy rules before hiring a permanent head coach.

  128. sfsaintsfan says: Nov 22, 2010 1:45 PM

    Wow, Chilly was still the coach……….

    HA HA

    I guess the Vikings can turn things around now, once they get rid of that flasher QB that is.

    A serious question, do the Vikings have to abide by the new “Chilly Rule” to hire a new coach. That being that they have to interview at least one coaching candidate without a brain…..

  129. aksuperfan says: Nov 22, 2010 1:47 PM

    Now that Childress is gone, I no longer want to hear a Vikings coach or player talk about an individuals play on national TV. If the coach does not like what he sees on the field he should pull that player aside and coach him, not publicly humiliate him on national TV. Showing the game tape of all the mistakes made during the game is humiliating enough for a competitive player. I hope the new coach Frazier will be hard on bad decision making and give the players good guidance in order to prevent the same play from showing in the following week’s game tape. Also, if a player is unable to participate in practice he should not be able to start in the next game; it is obvious that the team is lacking continuity on both sides of the ball.

  130. MTLighthouse69 says: Nov 22, 2010 1:48 PM

    They need to bench Favre and start Jackson. They need to find out if he can be a future star. Jackson hasn’t performed well in the past, but that doesn’t mean that he hasn’t learned a few things since then. There have been plenty of late blooming QBs through the history of the NFL.

    Favre is probably done at the end of this year anyway. There is no upside for the Vikings to have Favre playing now.

Of course, this doesn’t mean he deserves to be head coach of a professional football team, which is an elite position.Dude, No one wants to see someone lose their job. However, unlike you, or me, he still gets all his money. I’d like to get fired and collect millions!

    Joe Webb kicks his ass.

  135. allgreenbay says: Nov 22, 2010 2:11 PM

    Vikings fans act like it matters if Childress is gone. Do you think that a miracle coach will come in next year, Tavaris will be a hero and suddenly you’ll be holding the Lombardi trophy? Doubt it.

    Seems to me that your history as a franchise is sketchy to say the least. But your success at failing is outstanding!

  136. intedwetrust says: Nov 22, 2010 2:13 PM

    @theoriginalcaptainmarvel

    So you hope the Pack have a tough schedule next year? As I see it there’s three 8-2 teams this year and the Packers play all three of them on the road…thus far they’re 1-0 against them. They also beat Philly on the road already this year. Seems to me they already have a pretty tough schedule and yet they’d still one of the favorites with 10 players and 5 starters on IR. Yet unlike the Queens they make no excuses, they just go out there and play hard…something the Queens know nothing about.

  137. eaglelover1 says: Nov 22, 2010 2:17 PM

    I think the wrong person got showed the door in Minnesota. Favre should have been sent packing once the Vikings had lost 4 games. It was appearant at the beginning of the season that Favre did not want to be there and it has showed in his play. The Vikings had better hope and I should say PRAY that T-Jack will accept an apology from the Wilf and re-sign or else it’s going to be a loooooooooooooooooong time before the Vikings are even considered a competitive team again.

  138. packerhater says: Nov 22, 2010 2:23 PM

    Wrong. Mangini tried to “coach” Farve on his turnovers within the confines of team meetings and Favre chafed at that. Didn’t work. So the best thing to do to a diva with an enormous ego and entitlement complex like Favre is to publicly humiliate him. It’s nothing less than Favre deserves.

    ==================================
    Noble thought but it ain’t gonna happen. Lord Favre is all about Lord Favre. He could care about Leslie Frezier…he’s all about team remember…that’s why he limps out there every week costing his team victories. He’s a moron and he’ll find a way to stay in the headlines!

    1) I have to ask; did Brett Favre drive Chilly to the airport? (and how quiet was THAT ride?!)

    2) Does Brad Childress still think it was a smart move to become Favre’s public bit@h?

    3) How does a coach go from a Conference Championship to being fired in the course of 10 months?

    Sorry Pervy, all I care about in regards to this site is the Pack Vike rivalry, I respect Bears and Lions fans and their organizations so won’t talk much trash to them. But for you, the Vikes, and that sorry bubble I was in Sunday listening to the vulgar comments for about a quarter and a half, I have no respect. Obscene comments from you guys when the game is tied or when you are up 3-0. Then what, SILENCE, then what, you boo your own team, then leave….Pathetic….just liek you. So no I won’t forget the rivalry, you are no match for any knowledgeable fan on this site, you are just an easy target for all of us North fans to pick on as you continue to show your ignorance. Thanks for the entertainment, the rest of the pathetic Vikes fans have left. You may have all day, everyday, but I think most of us have things going on in our life that don’t allow that. So please keep running your mouth because I love when you Vikes fans make yourselves look bad. Your horrible fan base is why you are in talks for leaving, and why there isn’t much of a reason to build a new stadium, why you guys can’t take the cold, shouldve kept the MET, and why at the Dome Sunday Go Pack Go chants and more green than purple filled the Dome. Brint it Pervy….3-7…..

  170. melissachambers says: Nov 22, 2010 6:27 PM

    Good idea uncommon1, we’ll all just stop the rivalry and make it a point to dole out the feel-goods every Sunday evening from now until the end of the season.

    Come on, if you can’t appreciate a good rivalry then either don’t be a fan or don’t read about it. Either way, I think it’s pretty safe to say that Packer & Viking fans are even in this category.

    What is with you delusional Queen fans? Acting like you are happy we kicked your a$$. Do you really think Wilf was bringing back Chilly next year regardless if you won or lost this past Sunday? Frazier better figure out how to get your best player the ball, or even get your best player ON THE FIELD! I’m a Pack fan, but respect AP tremendously….Gerhart sucks!

    Wait, you’re talking football with the “elite” at the sports bar? Is it because booze makes everyone smarter?

    Kidding. There’s probably more sane conversation at a bar than at this site.

  179. pervyharvin says: Nov 22, 2010 9:34 PM

    majik….Thanks man…I had 20 bucks saying you would tell me those google facts.You are as easy to read as a book country bumpkin…

    kennyrogerschicken…Yes, booze can do that lol Is some pretty smart football old timers in there though. pre internet guys,just fact and story machines

    Farewell my PFT douchers,time to go crabbing in Alaska…
    ======================
    This is more of the relentlessness from you???….it keeps getting more and more sad when uneducated, ignorant, obstinate, bias fools like yourself try and have a discussion with true football fans with respect for the game. bye bye pervy….sail on the viking ship straight to the bottom of the league….3-7…SKOL VIKES…..LOL

    Childo’s record while HC of the Vikes:

    2006: 6-10 record
    2007: 8-8 record
    2008: 10-6 record, NFC North Champs
    2009: 12-4 record, NFC North Champs, advanced to the NFC Championship
    2010: 3-7 , fired mid-season

    I really can’t see how most of you can claim Childress was the problem in Minnesota. It is obvious that (with the exception of this year) the Queens have improved each year he was coach, coming within a field goal of a Super Bowl berth last season. On the other hand, you currently have a 41 year old primadonna QB who is currently ranked dead-last out of all 32 starting QBs in the league, is suffering a gimp ankle, bad elbow, and possesses a complete lack of any kind of respect for the coach who turned your fanchise around into a strong playoff contender. I might add that your starting QB is also on track to break his all time single-season INT total, which is doing nothing but ensuring your team has an uphill battle to try and win every week.

    Now can you please explain to me again why you are all so happy Childo was fired while being pleased that Princess Favre still occupies a roster spot on your team?

  185. majikbullet says: Nov 23, 2010 10:56 AM

    Exactly, that’s why that franchise is doomed, they got rid of the wrong guy!

    Pervy, we should meet at the sports bar of your choice sometime soon. I’ll just hang in the back and listen to you and your elite talk about football. You’ll know it’s me because I’ll be the blond half your age who doesn’t know anything about football because I’m just a chick from Wisconsin.

    I can’t wait to learn more about sports from you!

    Pervy, where’d you go, is this relentless? Did you run to your sports bar to drink away all the pain of being made look like a fool on every thread you post?

  189. shaggytoodle says: Nov 23, 2010 1:58 PM

    I think a big reason that chilly got canned, was lack of team unity. Just screaming at each other, on the sidelines. What team does that? If they had spent the bye week the right way, say on a cruise ship or a love boat. I think that would have built the unity needed to be a 8-8 team instead of a 5 win team.

  194. melissachambers says: Nov 23, 2010 3:14 PM

    Pervy, I can be to the cities in 90 minutes. I forget if you told me last year which city you live in?? Oh hell, doesn’t matter. I’d ask you to come to Eau Claire but that would put you at a disadvantage, and I’m not unfair like that.

    Anyway, you can hate the Packers all day long but how can you run your mouth about knowing so much about football stats and at the same time imply that the Packers are not a good team?

    Majik – Of course you can come with me! This should be fun.

  195. pervyharvin says: Nov 23, 2010 3:29 PM

    melissachambers….I am a mans man.I don’t hang with chumbalones like majik. Guy has no life,spends 24/7 on his computer.Stats are for losers,remember that. records are all that count. I can come to Eau Claire,I’m not outmatched anywhere. You have to be hot though…

  196. pervyharvin says: Nov 23, 2010 3:31 PM

    _____________________
    Hate to beat you at your own game but you haven’t been relentless, you’ve been taking hours to come up with feeble responses. So far, I hope you’re an adolescent or this is down right sad for an adult. Especially someone who claims to be a “man’s man” on a internet NFL blog, which screams the complete opposite.

    Sorry for raining on what was suppose to be your parade??? And sorry I have made better choices than you, and can post from my phone, ipad, or laptop anytime of the day I am not sleeping. If only the local grocery store would allow you a computer or internet to post at work vs going home after work and eating hungry man dinners(since you are a “mans man) with your mom while watching the view. Enjoy your life, sounds great!

    Melissa, I would like a woman’s perspective other than princess pervys, when a guy calls himself a “man’s man” on an internet blog what does that say about him?

  199. pervyharvin says: Nov 23, 2010 5:26 PM

    majik…I feel sorry for you. I wear kid gloves with you.The fact that you waste time sending me infantile paragraphs says it all. You are jealous.I am an icon.You are a moron. I am cool.You are a tool.

    As far as better choices,you can keep your trailer on your Grandmas farm land. I’m big city son,now get on out there and feed the pigs. I have a date with meter maid tonight…

  200. majikbullet says: Nov 23, 2010 6:26 PM

    Pathetic pervy…absolutely pathetic!

  201. melissachambers says: Nov 23, 2010 7:25 PM

    Pervy is getting off track as usual. I would say I am hot but you wouldn’t believe me anyway. Just like how you say you’re a man’s man. — And what does that actually prove even if you are?

    But really, stick to answering my question. You said “stats are for losers and records are all that count” – are you kidding? And if you’re not, that still proves how wrong you are and how you basically just said the Packers are a good team.

    Ah hell, why am I even bothering?

  202. pervyharvin says: Nov 23, 2010 7:30 PM

    majik….You are a joke.We don’t laugh with you but at you. You hugged Favre’s nuts until he failed this year.Now you are Mr. Packer….a true fake fan for sure!

  203. pervyharvin says: Nov 23, 2010 8:23 PM

    @ melissachambers ….The Packers are a good team….so far. I still believe Atlanta and Philly are emerging as the cream of the NFC though.Mat Ryan is like what..18-1 at home in his career? Good luck with that…

    Man’s man? I’ll enlighten you Melissa on my standards.He is strong,focused and can defend himself.He has at least 3 suits,one pin striped one being mandatory.He keeps his house in order and his word is his bond.Makes his own fortune. Thats all…

  204. pervyharvin says: Nov 23, 2010 8:30 PM

    majik…Lets call a cease fire…it is Thanksgiving after all.We are fighting over nada…

  205. majikbullet says: Nov 23, 2010 9:08 PM

    pervy, NO, you ran your mouth and now that several people are handing you your arse you want to waive the white flag, i will let up on you on Thurs, for the holiday, btu that is it.

    Also, you might think I was a Viking, or Favre fan earlier this year. I was not, But when PFT changed the site, I thought I would take that clowns name and make him look as bad as you make yourself look, I then however found out they blocked him, not his name but his ip address therefore the original Majikbullet won’t be on here….my plan backfired on MajikBullet…..but I am a new breed of realistic, less bias than most, football fan that loves making ignorant, arrogant, idiotic fans like yourself look bad. I especially like doing this to a mud hen like you, putting you in your place.

    So get your crap together, go home with your tail between your legs and come back in 10 years when the vikes have a chance of being 9-9. Yes it will be 18 games next time the vieks are relevent pervy before you try and make a horrible cut on me. stay unclassy princess perv

    So have an awesome Thanksgiving, Pervy & Majik.

    See? We can still be nice to each other on here every now and then. You guys just might need more women here to lighten things up. Wait, that would probably make things worse. Scratch that idea.

  213. majikbullet says: Nov 24, 2010 5:34 PM

    sorry perv, but the way you have run your mouth for the entire year and now you are waiving the white flag because youre team is one of the worst in the league shows us all why Viking fans are the worst. Just like at the game last Sunday, i had Viking fans saying f this f rodgers f lambeau for 1 1/2 quarters, then, not another word. funny how that works.

    if only you could have been mature and unbias this entire season just think of the respect you COULD receive. don’t act like you have been the adult one here pal, we all know that is not the case. yes we, you can look back and see multiple people have taken justified shots at you, and made you look incompetent.

    I couldn’t agree anymore. Go to any Pack/Vikes/Saints thread in the last year and this tool was running his mouth. Most people don’t like the taste of crow, doesn’t seem to bother Pervy much……

    So you’re not majik after all? Hmm, imagine that. Seems my instincts were correct. No wonder you couldn’t answer a simple little question. LOL

  220. majikbullet says: Nov 26, 2010 9:36 AM

    Deb Im impressed….you picked it up right away and pervy cant seem to grasp plain english….maybe oyu can take him to the side and learn him…

    But yes you are right, i could not stand the original majik, so i thought i would take his name when they changed the site to improve his image…after a while i started to pitty that poor ignorant fool…

  221. footballrulz says: Nov 26, 2010 12:48 PM

    So, which original majik could you not stand? The one that was originally a Packer fan, the one who was a Jets fan or the latest incarnation, the Vikes fan? How’d you know his IP got banned?

  222. majikbullet says: Nov 26, 2010 1:15 PM

    I believe Deb or someone claimed that was why he was not on here….I could not stand his Jet, and Vikes days. I have not been able to stand Brett Favre since Holmgren left, that is when I believe BrINT became the drama queen me me me player that he is today, and hearing majik try to defend him was sad, very sad for an adult to put forth that much effort to protect his man crush from some bashing on a nfl blog. i pitty the jet/vikes fan majik.

    So no need to argue with me over what the viking fan said in the past….not me…..as deb already figured out…..pervy cant seem to figure it out though….he may need some help from someone….

  223. Deb says: Nov 26, 2010 2:07 PM

    @majik???

    Can’t be sure they banned his IP address, but it’s the only reason I can think of that he wouldn’t have jumped all over you for impersonating him. Plus, he’s not the only one missing. Jeff has disappeared, too :( and so have some of the other Vike/Pack regulars. I’m still surprised they’d ban guys as soon as the switch was made without giving them a chance to play nice. Didn’t realize majik was that big a problem.

    How did you know he wouldn’t be here? And who were you before? Super caught onto you, too. Think he’s the one who said you were ACS3–was he right? I just knew you weren’t majik. Got into an ongoing battle with him a year ago and read a lot of his stuff. Your voice was wrong–it’s a writer’s thing. And whatever else I think about the guy, he’s sincere :)

  224. footballrulz says: Nov 26, 2010 2:15 PM

    Don’t know who to pity more. The Jet/Vike fan who had a mancrush on Favre or some guy who can’t stand an anonymous internet blogger so sets out on a personal mission to make him look like a clown when the dude can’t even be here to defend himself. BTW, who were you before they made the switch over to wordpress?

    Oh well, wasted enough time on this. How ’bout them Packers ;) Hope they show up and hold up against Atlanta on Sunday.

  225. majikbullet says: Nov 26, 2010 5:11 PM

    Ouch footballrulz….that hurts….but clowns like majik, arctic, pervy, and mnmaverick really got under my skin so I thought it would be fun to impersonate him….but the thing is I thought he would be here when i signed up…he just never showed….

    My identity? Well its not important, im not acs3 like you guys have guessed….and i didnt post often until recently…but im kind of liking it…

  226. footballrulz says: Nov 26, 2010 5:54 PM

    Fair enough new majik–enjoy the show :)

    They didn’t get banned. They are not here anymore because their team blows, and they don’t want to face the crap for all the stuff they spewed two months ago.

  228. Deb says: Nov 26, 2010 7:22 PM

    Well, new majik, I now have reason to believe old majik wasn’t banned. Perhaps he’s just disheartened by the way Favre’s season has gone. He may show up yet. I disagreed with him, but he was passionate about his favorite player, just as pervy and mnmaverick are passionate about their team. Sorry but I’m with footballrulz. Prefer passion to deviousness. Their smacktalk is all in fun and they’re not hurting anyone.
