    Re: NFCN coaching grades...

    I would say C or C+ at most. While the team did have some improvement this year, it stumbled during crucial games, and underachieved in several games this year. And 8-8 record shouldn't get you a B-, but it doesn't get you a D or F either.

    Brad Childress | Minnesota Vikings

    Childress was not a popular figure last season with many players, the media and fans, and he made only minor changes to assuage the critics who claimed he was too hard-headed and straight-laced. And early this season, he fostered his reputation with his conservative handling of Adrian Peterson’s touches, despite the rookie’s early success. Childress also was criticized for his insistence on playing QB Tarvaris Jackson, who looked still-green and rushed. Defensively, Childress and coordinator Leslie Frazier took heat for sitting too much in their base Tampa-2 system, which led to the pass defense getting torched often. Eventually, the coaches changed their approach with these things and more, using Peterson more often, getting more out of Jackson during a five-game win streak and changing up defensive looks and having success despite missing a few starters. It was a run that got the Vikings into solid playoff position going into their matchup with the Redskins in Week 16. But Childress was thoroughly outcoached by Joe Gibbs and Co. in the game. Peterson was bottled up, Jackson was terrible and the defense had few answers for QB Todd Collins, of all people. It was a mixed bag for the Vikings and Childress, both of whom improved in Year Two — just not enough.

    Grade: B-minus
    That's too high. If it wasn't for the play of AD, that would be an F-

    Fire Childress.
    Good thing AD was on the field free lancing and playing his own scheme without any help from any of the Chillers guys.

    Fire Childress.
    Yeah, and it was obviously only Spielmans idea to draft Peterson. But, it was all Childress's idea not to sign any major players in FA.

    Fire Childress.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Quite cracking me up.

    When and if the Chiller isn't the head coach of this team anymore I will tell you what I really think of him.
    Until then, well he is a Viking and I will continue to stick up for him just like I do for everyone but Bryzcheapski and our PR department. ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
