    Re: Brad Childress Press Conference 11/5

    Q: Is Drew Henson an option because of his familiarity?
    A: Rick (Spielman) and I went over kind of a long list today. I’m not going to speak to the people that were on the list, but there is a bunch of guys. Some fit, some don’t.
    Yet again, the myth that the Chiller is calling all the shots vice this is a organization that works as a whole, is blown out of the water.

    These are probably the most revealing questions I have ever seen the ole Chiller answer.
    Very interesting.

    Q: Yesterday you mentioned that about Peterson taking a three or four-yard run when it is there. Could you elaborate on that a little bit?

    A: Yeah, it’s hard to do without a…when we talk about course integrity for a running back, the linemen have an angle that they are traveling on to block their defenders and they trust the fact that the back will be on the landmark to bring the defenders to the blocks of the linemen. If a guy gets in his head, jeez, I had a big hit the last time they handed me the football back here and I am running this way; he takes the handoff and heads back that direction, then the lineman trusts the fact that he is going to push it this direction. Not a good thing for the linemen because it makes it look like the linemen aren’t blocking anybody. So they trust the fact that, as they say, put the ball on their feet and cut off of their feet. That’s where I have seen a marked improvement. Everybody coaches the zone a little bit differently. Some people want it square at the top; some people want certain steps at the top, but just the little idiosyncrasies of looking at our linemen and setting up blocks or looking at an outside linebacker in the eye who is peeking at you and showing him that you might go inside and having him put his head inside so you can circle the defense.


    Q: Is that like having a quarterback stay in the pocket that has the tackles push him out?

    A: Yeah, it’s not always the most comfortable. He has obviously enough innate skills, but it’s just the little things. Let’s say that everybody has about the same ability; taking somebody out of a responsibility they should have like turning it back into the defense. You pushing your head inside and somebody jumping inside…he is learning those things. Our video is a great teacher; he learns when he sees those things right away. He can come back and say, ‘Uh, I was back too fast. I wasn’t patient enough on that one.’ But he’ll just get better and better with that.

    Q: So even with what Allison did, you don’t like to lock in and have roster spots designated for those return specialists? Is it more based on numbers?

    A: It really is. You better rep a lot of guys because it would be like us going in with the idea that we were going to be in a three-tight end set and lose two of them. You better have some three-wide receiver ideas as well, and two-back ideas. Just as well as you only have five backs up and you lose two fullbacks you had better have plenty of one-back ideas.
    We train Chuck Gordon and Mewelde Moore and Aundrae Allison and Troy Williamson in some of those areas, Darren Sharper. You go with the idea that you have a one, two, three and then you have got to see who is up and you expect them all to do, they are all trained looking at that return during the week.
    Hmmmmm.
    So they didn't change the scheme.
    They just used the stuff they had been calling before.

    Success can be attributed to the youth/experience level of the QB.

    Hmmmmmm.
    Very interesting.
    I wish someone would have caught on to that already. ;D

    ;D


    Q: Was that a change of scheme on defense that got you that pressure or what that a result of the guys doing what they are supposed to do and it just worked better yesterday than it did in previous games?

    A: No I think those calls are always up and available; it just depends on how you want to utilize it.
    I think Rivers is a little different kind of quarterback than the guy we probably played in the last couple weeks.
    WHAT.........
    Could this be another myth blown out of the water?

    Q: I know you were fond of Koren Robinson when he was here; when is the last time you talked to him and what are your emotions facing him?

    A: I think I had a telephone conversation with him, but I can’t recall when. He got pretty close with Robert Ferguson.
    I know that they text back and forth because Ferg has told me that a couple times. I just wish him the best and hope everything is behind him.

    If you are refering to the blocking scheme,eg. course integrity,etc.,I already did!

    Re: Vikings vs. Chargers: Adrian Peterson & post game articles
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    I saw your post my friend.
    You weren't the only one, a few others, including yours truly, were not blind to that fact my friend.
