    Am I the only one that thinks this way?

    I am actually glad that the season has turned out the way it has. Yes there has been alot to be unhappy about, yes there is a lot to be ripped but here is why I am glad that it has turned out the way it has.
    I think for the first time in many years this is a team is sitting back and honestly evaluating what is wrong with the team and what we need to do. I think Childress has put alot of everything on himself so that his coaches can learn and get better in the system. Childress gets ripped alot but one thing that I can say more than Tice and Green is that he is consistant. Remember guys he inherated this team. I think its more of alot of the bad stuff that was on this team that is now getting exposed because Childress is coaching. Why because he is holding this team accountable. Childress although many people will disagree is making this team better in the long run. We just have to be patientanbd let things happen. I think of it as a company I used to work for that was a mess. When the new mnagaement came in they started making changes and everyone hated it. some people left others were fired, but after a year and a half the company made a complete turn around and began to thrive, then looking back we realized why things were done the way that it was sone. If Wilf is the same type of business man and I think he is I belive that we will see that what is happening now is being done for a reason and we will see the better long term effects

    Re: Am I the only one that thinks this way?

    Before I can agree or not, i need to see how Childress handles the offseason.
    I agree that a new coaching staff will always have some growing problems.
    That is normal.
    What makes for agreat head coach is the way he addresses those problems.
    We will finish this season with a losing record.
    I can live with that.
    But I expect it to improve next year.

    I don't know if you're the only one...but NO - I am NOT glad the season turned out the way it has.
    All the "soul searching" and "honest evaluations" along with $4 will get you a Venti Mocha down at Starbucks.
    Of course the Vikes need to play better and coach better, but I don't want a 6 or 7 win season to go along with that knowledge.
    In the offseason, all teams have improvements to make and personnel to evaluate - whether you won 2 games or the Super Bowl.
    I'd take the latter

    This was supposed to be a rebuilding year. with that said, there are teams with new HC's doing well, Saints, and some are awful, Detroit. I'm not blaming Childress' system for this season, just his play calling.

    But would you agree that this year exposes alot of the weaknesses that we have? So that does make it a good thing?

    Agreed on the playcalling.....and Also agreed on the initial post.
    This was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
    We totally wiped out our whole coaching staff, and rebuilt it!
    We added new players, coaches and staff!
    Most of the other teams in the NFL just got new head coaches, but we have a whole new staff.


    To tell you the truth, I am very pleased with how the defensive players have handled this new system this year!
    You can't just learn a new system in a week, you have to get experience with the new system.
    Defense has been good.


    BUT

    Offensivly I dont think Childress is good enough to be calling the plays!
    Im not saying the plays are bad, I'm saying he's not fooling anyone.
    We are soooo predictable!


    I know Im gonna be thrashed by some people for saying this, but I hope we bring denny green into our organization, as either an offensive assistant or somewhere.
    We got some good talent when he drafted, and so did Arizona.
    Our offense also thrived when he was here.
    Maybe, HE should be our playcaller next year?

    Yah, I agree.
    I am so thrilled we look like clowns on the field...should help us get a better draft pick.
    Because moving up a few spots you are guaranteed a good pick.

    I don't like this season at all. I like the seasons where i can go to school with a vikings hat on and not have it thrown across the hall millions of times a day.
