Report: Childress, Favre at odds over offense

We decided to take a 12-hour break from posting anything regarding the Childress-Favre feud because, really, there’s nothing new to say about it.

But the 12 hours are up, and there’s something new to say, courtesy of the network that will milk this cow until 24 hours after Monday night’s game between Minnesota and Chicago has ended.

Ed Werder of ESPN has gotten inside the heads of Brad Childress and Brett Favre, and Werder reports that the tension arises from disagreement regarding the influence each man should have in the offense.

Werder, who cites multiple team sources in support of his report, claims that the talk regarding the possible removal of Favre from multiple games arises not from a desire to protect Favre, but from Favre’s tendency to change the plays that have been called.

(Given the subtle pro-Favre tone of the report and Werder’s history of interviewing Favre and lack of history specifically covering the Vikings, it’s not a stretch to conclude that Favre is one of Werder’s sources.) 

Werder also reports that Favre resents that Childress “seldom” discusses the game plan with Favre, and that Childress rarely asks for Favre’s input.  And when Favre changes the play, Childress “bristles,” even when the audible works.

By taking the situation public, Childress is now powerless to remove Favre under the guise of protecting him, or for any other reason.  So Favre is running the show in Minnesota, and nothing Childress says or does can change it.

His best bet, then, would be to enjoy the fact that Favre’s performance has removed Chilly from a very hot seat, resulting in a long-term extension.  And while Brett is running the offense the way he sees fit, Childress can spend his free time trying to figure out how he’ll regain the confidence and respect of the players who’ll be on the team once Favre is gone.

  1. The best thing about Favre going to Minnesota and doing well is that they locked up Chilly for the next few years. HAHAHA! Suckers!

  2. Haha, I love it. Favre is doing unrepairable damage to the Vikings. Look, Favre is what he his. A great quarterback who puts himself before the team. He believes he’s bigger than the game because the media has made him out to be. No team in the NFL can win a superbowl with him on the roster. He may get you to a big game but he’ll go out like John Wayne just to make himself out to be a hero or a victim.

  3. Alright Child-dress….Your ‘Daddy’ got you your money, now go sit in the corner and let numbr 4 take us to the promised land!
    You screw this up Chil-dork and I’ll smack that girl-beard right off your face.
    GO VIKES!

  4. Favre is never going to get to his goal of double digit INT’s if Chilly doesn’t let him be the gunslinging, fun loving kid out there that we all know and are completely sick of.

  5. Why not just embrace it, like they do in Indy? Everyone knows that Peyton Manning is the defacto OC in Indy. Just allow Favre to be the defacto OC or AOC in Minny and be done with it. Then, when Favre is gone, Chilly does whatever Chilly does. Considering how many Minny fans complained about Chilly-ball the last couple years, I don’t see how this could hurt.

  6. Even more coal to stoke up the engines of the Favre excuse train for a one-and-done playoffs for the Vikes.
    Good thing Ed Werder has that direct line to Deanna…

  7. He’s the coach Brett, If you don’t like it go back to the jets or something. About the only team that’s wants you is the Raiders. Its become apparent why the pack finally got rid of you.
    The Vikings should start Tavaris, they would do just as good but without the drama

  8. The only other athlete I can compare Brett Favre too is Barry Bonds. Its not a good comparison. these are the only two all time great athletes I can think of that the vast majority of fans couldnt wait to get rid of.
    Think about it. Brett Favre would be on a top ten list of all time great QB’s. but instead of enjoying him (unless you root for the Vikings), we cannot wait till the day this guy vanishes and we never hear from him again. All the whining, games with the media, and prima donna act have spoiled our memories of him. Enough with the guy is just enough. Go away Brett Favre

  9. WTG, posting information available over 2 hours ago on ESPN.
    Least you could have waited till the press conference was over….oh wait, you couldn’t do that, your site hits would have gone down!

  10. Chilly needs to STFU. He insisted on bringing in the diva, now deal with it! The old saying; be careful what you wish for because you just might get it, certainly applies here. He lost this team to Favre the minute he allowed the diva to skip training camp (while everyone else was working their ass off) and hand the offense over to him during the last couple preseason games. Karma Viking beotches!

  11. Look, Favre wants too win a SuperBowl bad to get revenge on Green Bay. He’s played the game for many years and he’s played the QB postion at that so he knows the game better than Childress period. Let him do want he wants because he’s going to do it anyway. Childress needs to check his EGO and ride Favre to the superbowl. And I’m a Bears an at that!

  12. Childress tried to pull off the same publicity stunt as Mangina last year… Get Favre, try to scape together enough to wins to make the postseason without any real chance in hell to complete for a Championship. Owner happy, fans happy, Coach keeps his job.
    Anyone with a brain knew this would end disasterously… Good luck winning with Jackson next year!

  13. Florio, you have read this situation wrong.
    If this offense sputters at all, Childress now has carte blanche to take Favre out of the game any time he sees fit. This is because Favre gave that card to Childres.
    Favre exposed himself as a player who wants to do the coach’s job, instead of following orders. Public sympathy is now with Childress. If Favre doesn’t follow orders now, Childress can pull him at any time, and have the full and complete support of Vikings fans. Most likely, however, Childress will only pull Favre if the offense sputters.

  14. Let the gunslinger audible his way into sacks and int’s…we all know that without AP being effective Farve will revert to throwing wild ass passes into the hands of the DB’s over, and over and over again….1 and done for Brett and the Vikes and hopefully he will never return….way to lock up Chilly before the season ends!!!!
    *Philly could get the bye and if they do…the epic collapse of the Vikes will go against Chilly and not Lord Farve….oh well

  15. The “kick-ass” offense that Chilly was going to bring to MN has never materialized until Favre started running it. Now that we know that this is Favre’s version of the offense, maybe Chilly should just shut the hell up and go along for the ride. Favre knows this offense better than Chilly and has had sucess doing so. Favre already got him a contract extension that he didn’t deserve…Chilly shut up and let Favre take us to the Super Bowl.

  16. If you only waited 12 hours to post anything new about Moss last week considering there was really nothing else to say about it.

  17. Favre cultivated his diva attitude in Green Bay. They worshiped him like a God there and fed his ego.
    GB fans can laugh about this now. This hasn’t all played out yet though. It could come back to bite them.

  18. Nobody stirs the shitpot like Ed Werder, so ESPN assigns him to follow the prima donna du jour. Before Favre it was T.O., until he got banished to Siberia. ESPN didn’t want Ed reporting with icecicles hanging from that manly ‘stache.

  19. Emoney, you are a tool. Vikes are 11-3 and you think this is a problem? Vikes secured a coach that has consistently improved the team record each season he has been brought on board and you laugh at his extension? You must be a Packer fan which can only explain your stupidity.

  20. …as if straying from chilly ball and taking an extra risk or two wouldn’t excite us vikes fans. i’m sure we’re all for a bit more aggression as long as brett’s smart with the football.

  21. Thought his name was CHILDLESS until I realized it couldn’t be… he still has to deal with Favre on a daily basis.

  22. @ internettoughgut:
    “Alright Child-dress….Your ‘Daddy’ got you your money, now go sit in the corner and let numbr 4 take us to the promised land!
    You screw this up Chil-dork and I’ll smack that girl-beard right off your face.”
    Thank you for confirming the Viking fans believe that girls should have beards.

  23. I love it. Keep the articles and reports coming.
    Packer nation loves Aaron. Classy guy.
    Vikes fans – continue to thank us for Favre if you’d like.

  24. LOL, Beware: “The Favre Matrix” Cometh
    Before Favre came to Minneapolis, the Vikings offense was built around Adrian Peterson, and one of Favre’s stated reasons for going there was the chance to “just hand the ball off”.
    Now that he is there, he’s trying to wrest control of the offense from his head coach, and make it all about him. I have to believe that the “schism” may go further than just Favre/Childress, but to Favre/Peterson as well…
    Oh well…like the old saying goes: Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it…

  25. If Favre wants a say in gameplans, why not show up for training camp? Instead he wants to show up when he wants and do what he wants. I guess you have to be a black WR to be criticized for such behavior.

  26. Emoney hit the nail on the head. they were suckers for re-upping with this bonehead. been saying the man can’t coach for years. one dynamic changes the outcome of last Sunday nights game…give McKinnie help against Peppers. why do you think two of our three losses have been undoing in the second half? the ability to make in-game changes. he can not do these things, outcoached every week. for the last few years, going against the Vikings in a second half wager was a lock. Wilf should have waited until he proved something in the playoffs. Cowher (and really any coach for that matter) would have been salivating at the opportunity to coach this team. some of the most recent Super Bowl teams took a pounding, late in the season, that refocused the team and allowed the coaches to see on film some weaknesses to get corrected. doesn’t seem like the Cardinals game did that to this squad. another Vikings team that was incredibly talented but coached to get outplayed.

  27. Childress is the coach and Favre is the QB. Neither should have ANY authority whatsoever to do the other’s job. Otherwise, where does it end?
    If Favre gets away with this kind of stuff, other diva QBs and players around the league will start insisting on micro-coaching, too.
    If I were Childress, I’d bench the living shit out of Favre.

  28. in other news….the state of minnesota doesn’t give a shit about the vikings and won’t build them a new stadium….LA here they come!
    they’ll obviously change the name of the team, as well. so it needs to be something california appropriate. something light and frilly. hopefully they’ll let them keep their 30% lighter purple jerseys though!

  29. “Given the subtle pro-Favre tone of the report ”
    There was nothing “pro-Favre” about it. Just because Ed didn’t insert made up conjecture which you interject into your anti-Favre posts doesn’t make it “pro-Favre”.

  30. No, I think he’s an emotional football player. It’s part of his makeup that makes him good. I understand he’s Brett Favre as well, sometimes bigger than life in terms of what gets said and what gets talked about. But he’s a good team player here and he has been the whole time he’s been here. I have nothing but admiration and respect, as does our whole football team.”
    Translation: “Everyone knows I can’t coach. Heck, I’d wax this guys balls if it gets me a ring. No way I’m pissing him off now.”

  31. @hayward giablommi – Great comment and completely true. Favre has no idea how to act as long as he is in single digit int’s. And what makes you posters think that Farve is capable of calling the plays on this offense? For all the Romo lovers out there, you can take solace in the fact that Favre is a worse December QB than Romo is over the life of Romo’s career (last five years). Much worse.

  32. Tough one. On the one hand, you got a QB with two decades of experience. On the other hand, he’s NOT THE COACH!
    If anything, maybe Chilly should have embraced it and told the media that Favre was allowed to change plays or something. In Indy, it was said that the way it works was that Manning was giving three plays to choose from. I wonder how many times he chose a completely different play…

  33. emoney says no NFL team can win a super bowl with him on the roster? you new to football? it’s already been done.

  34. Being a Vikings fan my whole life, I completely embraced the idea of bringing the diva known as Brett Favre here. Being a realistic Vikings fan, I did not and do not believe that # 4 was the missing piece who would bring the purple that long awaited Super Bowl victory. At best he gives the purple a better chance than they otherwise would have had with T-Jack or Sage.
    The way I see it, Silly Chilly knew what he was getting into when he brought the Diva back north. Chilly’s problem is that he has a huge ego. Hell, if I was Brad, I would just sit back and let #4 change the plays and do his thing. With the “Diva,” you take the INTs with the TDs. If Chilly wants to get all pissed off, he may as well go after his overrated offensive line for their gutless performance. Go after his defense that has lost its ability to rush the passer and create turnovers. Brett Favre may not get the Vikes to the Super Bowl, but he should be the least of Chilly Dawg’s worries.

  35. This AM when I turned on “ES-PEN” and saw Werder reporting live from MN, I thought, “Oh, it must be bad if Werder is there.” LOL!

  36. @ LBPACKFAN
    Thanks for Brett! We are 11-3 and secured a spot in the playoffs. What has Karen done for you? Are you guys in yet?

    Why not just embrace it, like they do in Indy? Everyone knows that Peyton Manning is the defacto OC in Indy. Just allow Favre to be the defacto OC or AOC in Minny and be done with it. Then, when Favre is gone, Chilly does whatever Chilly does. Considering how many Minny fans complained about Chilly-ball the last couple years, I don’t see how this could hurt.
    ____________________________________
    It can be that way in Indy because Payton is a smart quarterback. Favre has no wits about him, he just wants to chuck the ball hard and long.(insert Beavis and Butthead joke here) Payton also publicly defers to his coach while Favre throws his coach under the bus publicly.

  39. Does this surprise anyone except for the dumb ass Viking fans who thought everything was going to be hunky dory.
    Fortunately for Chilly, Walgreens has a special on KY Jelly this week so this wouldn’t be as painful as he first thought. Chilly will have to stand in line at the cash register behind all the Viking fans who will be stocking up for the playoffs. Doesn’t matter the opponent, but the Vikings are sure to be somebody’s bitch.

  40. Bell63 your an idiot….no you would have to be under contract to be criticized for such behavior.
    Childress should be fired…who hires a quarterback with 20 years experience and then expects the QB not to call audibles. Favre is not Tarvaris.

  41. This week’s game at Chicago will be the Vikings’ first cold weather game. I’m sure the weather will take some getting used to for most of the team, which will make for a very frvstrated Favre. Add to that, in cold weather environments, teams tend to keep it on the ground.
    The sub-zero messiah will not be pleased.
    I see a perfect storm brewing…

    and you guys should be all about aaron. us vike’s fans would obviously love to watch your team lose every game, but those of us who are rational realize that he’s more than likely going to make plays in our division for quite some time.

    This woud be true leather, provided that the MN fans were sane and rational, which the posts on here prove the opposite. These “fans” are all caught up in Favre, not their team.

  44. TNick said: “No team in the NFL can win a superbowl with him on the roster”
    I guess you aren’t counting the Super Bowl he won in Green Bay? Douche.

  45. Okay so all the Favre haters want him to go away because he gets annoying right? I agree but seriously, the news will just continue on into stupid shit anyway like Chad Johnson’s (I refuse to use the other name) an idiot because yada yada yada. News will be created one way or the other, meaningful or not.
    And just admit it, he’s fun to watch. If you don’t like it root against him. One way or the other Favre makes a game more exciting.

  46. Even if the Vikings make the superbowl, they’ll get their butts kicked anyway. The AFC is just too dominent. Bye bye baby Brettie.

    Huh?!?! When did I say that? Read the entire post retard. I didn’t post that.

  49. Just watched the Chilly and Favre press conference. All you guys on here making speculation as well as Werder are major no nothing jack asses. Brett and Chilly are just thinking about Chicago. No story here…just media grasping for all Favre all the time.
    Werder is a joke.

  50. what the hell has happened to this guy?
    can fame and fortune corrupt someone this much?
    Can his ego get any bigger?
    I remember this character when he was simply thrilled to have a starting job. Now it is all a show and a fake.
    I was a life-long, die-hard, man-loving Brett Favre fan; but this show or act is borderline childish. I even gave up my lifelong fan card of the packers when they traded this character
    this just goes to show that sports is corrupt. Sports franchises are corrupt and want money – this is the goal MONEY. Players get corrupt by the fans, money and fame.
    Ugly, ugly business.

  51. “So Favre is running the show in Minnesota, and nothing Childress says or does can change it.”
    PFT is shoveling it out as fast as Florio can produce it. Any integrity this site has is quickly dying. PFT- muck raking in it’s finest form.

  52. Can’t wait to see poor Brent freeze in Chicago, between him and Cutler they should be good for double digit picks.

    ———————————
    So you’re saying the Vikings wouldn’t have gone 11-3 this year without Favre? That doesn’t say much about the overall team.
    I guess we’ll find out how good he really is once Favre retires. That’ll tell everyone how good of a coach he is.

  54. sven_ftw —
    You’re right. Vikes and Pack were right in their decisions…going with Aaron…and begging Brett to play. Should be an interesting finish!

  55. BACK TO BACK 18 time DIVISION CHAMPIONS!!!!
    SUCK ON THAT GREEN BAY, CHICAGO and DETROIT!
    18 times!!!
    (I’m doing my best not to kill myself prior to Christmas-why is this happening to us Vikings fans?)
    SKOL VIKINGS!!!
    all we do is… choke. 😦

  56. Hilarious, chilly slobs all over barts knob back in august and now bart is moving on…chilly must feel like one of tigers bitches…

  57. Really I’ll be interested to see how Brett does in the playoffs. He really doesn’t have that great of a track record i.e. six picks against the Rams, the punt he threw up against the Eagles after the 4th and 26 and the memorable pickoff in the 2007 championship game. I think the Vikings are relaly going to need Petersen and Taylor to ge tthem to the Promiseland.

  58. You knew at the time when Favre went to the vikes, he did two things:
    – he fixed the lack of talent at QB position
    – Childress is no longer making all the calls
    Both of these things solved critical weaknesses and made the Vikes a more legit contender.

  59. I cant wait for the offseason!!! When the Vikes lose in the playoffs, Favre is going to blame Chilly’s play calling. And at the same time, Chilly is going to blame Favre for changing the plays…. And all of the Fave supporters will cry and say that Chilly sucks at play calling (even though the plays that lead to the demise of the season came directly from Favre)

  60. I don’t quite get Childress on this one. I read somewhere that he stated that changing the game plan means you didn’t plan well. While that’s true, it seems that when he doesn’t plan well, he doesn’t realize it until it’s too late. It was pretty obvious when the score was 7-6 that the Vikings were flirting with danger. The offense wasn’t moving the ball at all and Favre had no time. You have to blame that on play calling. There was no TE/RB to chip Peppers, and they didn’t even call runs in that direction. I don’t quite get that. Peppers had absolutely no regard for the running lanes, and had they simply used those lanes, Peterson would have had a few nicer runs. That alone would have slowed Peppers down, but no attempts at all to do that.
    You can bash Favre for changing plays or what not, but that is part of his job. There’s no reason to run the ball when teh defense has 8 or 9 guys in the box, and is long as defenses key in on Peterson, Favre should be passing. If Chilly doesn’t like that, tough… that’s coaching, and it’s the QBs job to recognize that and adjust the offense accordingly.
    I’m simply frustrated by the fact that there isn’t enough room in the locker room for both Childress and Favre. Both could easily have placated the other to an extent. Childress could have given Favre help or asked for input on it. Favre could have probably called a few running plays to protect himself too. But he didn’t. To me, that’s bothersome.
    I know this. I want a ring… and I know that Brett (Diva or not) wants one too… And I’m more confidence in Brett running the offense than Chilly. I didn’t like Brett in GB, but Diva or not, #4 at QB is our best shot. #4 calling plays is our best shot. Chilly should sit back and let it happen. Maybe he could learn a thing or two about his offense.

  61. lmao …… U GOTTA BE KIDDIN ME HERE!! Vikes have a couple of hiccups and out come the I Told Ya So idiots. Favre is a HOF QB, like it or not. Best QB Mn has had since, well hell I can’t remember and with that comes some Knowledge of the game. Will there be sparks when he voices his opinion about game plans that don’t work? Damn well better be!!! Favre can and has beaten every team in the leaque. The man stands up for himself (he’s earned the right to) and everyone wants to think he has ruined the Vikes! … Don’t make me laugh!….That’s what leaders do! And them some ppl just write articles to stir shyt up.

  62. This experiment was always an all-or-nothing deal. Get a title, and all the BS is worth it. Fall short and you’re stuck watching the 2010 edition of will-he-won’t-he Favreapalooza praying that your now-extended hack of a coach isn’t forced to try and win with Rosenfels as a fallback option.

  63. To All Vikings Fans.
    If somebody makes a negative comment about Brett Favre, it doesn’t mean they’re Green Bay Packers fans, it doesn’t mean they’re from Green Bay and it doesn’t make the comment inaccurate. Your hatred for the Packers’ organization and it’s fans resemble the jealousy of a fanbase held without a championship with an inferior tradition and success rate. Further to that, there is no rivalry between Green Bay and Minnesota without Brett Favre. The rivalry prior to this year was one sided. The Packers and Packer fans treat the Bears and Cowboys as their rivals, your team meant nothing to the Packers prior to Favre signing in Minnesota. The Bears and Packers are Steak and you guys are bologna.

  64. Not ready to admit that Favre is going back to old ways in terms of his play. HOWEVER, for any packerfan talking like we’re in the playoffs….SHUT UP! We are not in yet.

  65. The Vikings have won 11 games and are at the top of the division…the only reason any Vikings fan is complaining about this news…or probably anyone really is because they lost the last game. If the vikings beat carolina then Brett Favre is the hero and Chilly is the moron…which Chilly is anyway…talk about diva…Chilly can’t even wear the standard issue headset (Can anyone give me a reason why?).
    Any head coach that doesn’t have faith in his QB at the line to change a play is an ego driven diva that cares more about his offensive genius and game plan than winning the football game.
    No Favre = No Contract for Chilly. I feel very sorry for viking fans when favre retires because Chilly will just screw it up.
    If i’m the coach i let my QB change plays if it’s winning games…Favre is 10x the football guy that Chilly is, if Chilly is lucky he will learn something about football from Favre…

  66. The Bears can make their whole season on Monday night by beating Minnesota. Outdoors, cold, national tv, must win game for Vikes. Minnesota’s locker room has to be tense after all this. Will they rally around Brett, or will they choke? This is better than Christmas.

  67. Ed Werder is the king of pot stirring around this time of year. He has gone after TO and now he has gone after Favre. Ed is still pissed that Brett didn’t call him when he decided to join the Vikings. What a bunch of petty media hacks. Brett Favre is bigger than the Packers and bigger than the Vikings. He is the Tiger Woods of the NFL. People tune in because he is on. And media turds know they can throw Favre’s name around and all of a sudden hack lawyers turned NFL jock sniffers will link it on their websites.

  68. Poor Vikings. Greatest talent in the NFL and bad coaching. It has happened before. A decade ago they were the greatest “show on turf” offensively, until the Rams blew them out in the playoffs. Nobody remembers that the Vikes were actually viewed as the superior offensive team. In the playoff matchup, the Rams hit a TD on their first play. That’s coaching. Now, we see the same pattern. Great RB, great QB, great WRs. And they will soooooo lose. They will be pumelled. Martz beat their ass in their heyday, and that dude, what’s his name, Chilly?, they will lose harder now. Chilly is like Schottintheheader. He can generate winning seasons, but he’s too stupid to actually beat the clever folks, the Martzes and the Belichicks. And the fact is contrary to popular opinion, that Martz coached a whole team, not just a passing game. That is why he is in the Top 20 NFL coaches of all time in winning percentage.
    And Chilly cannot even get past conversations with his QB on the sidelines. Can you imagine Martz or Bellichick in this situation? you’re right. No.
    The Vikings are a perennial case of having super talent and mindless, narrow, autistic coaching. So many teams starve for the talent. Vikes have it. Kudos to the personnel department, they have done better than any team in the NFL. And they’ll never win. Until they get Coach Clever. If Martz was HC or OC on this team, they would win the superbowl, hands down. Not even close.

  69. All you Favre haters, this situation is not unique. Peyton Manning does the same thing, and has for years. Montana did, Marino, there are several veteran QB’s who are given more leeway to change plays.
    Another thing that is not unique is Favre and Childress having disagreements on how to run the offense. All QB’s and their coaches do. They are both still within the system, so its not an issue. That push and pull from both guys has resulted in an 11-2 record so, it’s working. We’ll know for sure if any schisms have been squashed by how they do in Chicago, but otherwise I can’t imagine this will be a problem for Brett and his coach.

  70. LOL at all the Vikings fans attacking Ed Werder. You sound just like cowboys fans last year. “Oh he’s just making it all up and stirring the pot!”. Turns out Ed was right on. The Cowboys locker room was imploding and, sure enough, the Cowboys did too. Nothing he reported was incorrect in Dallas last year. Favre’s ego dwarfs that of Owens and no doubt the team’s real star and franchise player, Adrian Peterson…..is getting audibled right out of the gameplan by Favre…..who’s been consistently throwing 40-50 times per game. AP has more friends in that locker room than Favre does. That’s for damn sure.
    “Oh but the opposition is stacking the box! Favre HAS to throw!”. LOL. They’ve been stacking the box against AP all along and he still got his yards and highlight reel plays. I’m even seeing dumbass Vikings fans turning on Peterson so they can pump up their False Prophet Favre. It’s gonna be funny as all hell when Peterson remembers this come contract time and he signs with Green Bay. He’ll be tired of Los Angeles by then.
    And Drat, your post is wrong on so many levels. First of all Martz has a much smaller pool of games as a head coach under his belt than the guys ahead of him in that “top 20”. He didn’t win the Super Bowl in 2001 when he had all the offensive talent in the world……the same team that Vermiel won with. And lastly, Favre isn’t even remotely smart enough to run Martz’s offensive system.

    Does this surprise anyone except for the dumb ass Viking fans who thought everything was going to be hunky dory.
    Fortunately for Chilly, Walgreens has a special on KY Jelly this week so this wouldn’t be as painful as he first thought. Chilly will have to stand in line at the cash register behind all the Viking fans who will be stocking up for the playoffs. Doesn’t matter the opponent, but the Vikings are sure to be somebody’s bitch.

    you really must have no friends. rivalry or not, your lack of sportsmanship really shows what a true asshole you must be inside. with you and douchebag nelson, you really make your fellow packer fans look like the most class-less bunch to frequent this website. i hope karma bites you in the ass, because most of the rest of us are here daily due to the fact that we love football and ENJOY the sport.
    you truly are a hateful individual. i hope your christmas sucks.
    we may get our hopes up a bit too much, but if that’s the worst rap us vikes fans get on here, i’m a-ok with that.

  72. “By taking the situation public, Childress is now powerless to remove Favre under the guise of protecting him, or for any other reason. So Favre is running the show in Minnesota, and nothing Childress says or does can change it.”
    Hey Florio – why would that be ??? I would think it would be more likely he’d replace, if this story is true.

    LOL at all the Vikings fans attacking Ed Werder. You sound just like cowboys fans last year. “Oh he’s just making it all up and stirring the pot!”. Turns out Ed was right on. The Cowboys locker room was imploding and, sure enough, the Cowboys did too. Nothing he reported was incorrect in Dallas last year. Favre’s ego dwarfs that of Owens and no doubt the team’s real star and franchise player, Adrian Peterson…..is getting audibled right out of the gameplan by Favre…..who’s been consistently throwing 40-50 times per game. AP has more friends in that locker room than Favre does. That’s for damn sure.
    =============================
    Capt. limpdick “consistently throwing 40-50 time per game huh? try 4 out of 14, yep that is consistent…….

    To All Vikings Fans.
    If somebody makes a negative comment about Brett Favre, it doesn’t mean they’re Green Bay Packers fans, it doesn’t mean they’re from Green Bay and it doesn’t make the comment inaccurate. Your hatred for the Packers’ organization and it’s fans resemble the jealousy of a fanbase held without a championship with an inferior tradition and success rate. Further to that, there is no rivalry between Green Bay and Minnesota without Brett Favre. The rivalry prior to this year was one sided. The Packers and Packer fans treat the Bears and Cowboys as their rivals, your team meant nothing to the Packers prior to Favre signing in Minnesota. The Bears and Packers are Steak and you guys are bologna.
    =============================
    Asshat: Obviously you know nothing of the NFC north(central) division.
    If you did, you’d know this rivalry goes back aways. Meant nothing to the packers before Favre signed?! Are you delusional?
    The Pack didn’t waste 3 picks in a draft to defend Moss? Moon over Lambeau ring a bell? It’s imporatnat to the players too, google some quotes.
    You know nothing of this rivalry so it’s best to STFU!
    If we weren’t bitter rivals, then why is there continous smack talk all over these boards about Vikes/Pack shit?
    Go back to bed, or better yet, do some research, your ignorance is showing.
