    Childress: Basics first, before the exotics - Interceptions, sloppiness, fumbles

    [size=13pt]Childress: Basics first, before the exotics[/size]

    Though the Vikings are experimenting with the Wildcat formation, improving all aspects of the passing game is coach Brad Childress' priority.

    MANKATO, Minn. — After a somewhat sloppy practice this morning, Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress wasn't pleased with his passing offense....

    Re: Childress: Basics first, before the exotics - Interceptions, sloppiness, fumbles

    But before coach Brad Childress will get excited about using trick plays, he wants to see the team's regular package of passing plays executed properly. And, according to Childress, that isn't happening enough.
    We'd all love to see that you old fool but when you keep calling run left, run right, short pass on third down then it's really not going to happen is it?
    Anyone contacted Ben & Jerry's ready for the regular season vanilla order yet?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Childress said: "I just think we have a lot of work to do in all areas, whether it's throwing it, route running, protection, blitz pickup, breaking, beating man to man, know where to sit in the zone. We've got a long way to go to be happy with the passing game."
    I'll bookmark this new one for future reference when the skeptics once again place all blame on our passing game onto Jackson & make the ridiculous statement that he doesn't know the playbook.

    I see know where in that statement that says that Jackson knows the playbook.
    And who puts all the blame on Jackson?
    I put the majority of the blame on Jackson, but certainly not all of it.

    TJ blocking a DB when he is not 100%?

    Not smart!

    We need to seriously ask ourselves whether our version of wildcat should keep the QB on the field.

    We need to seriously ask ourselves whether our version of wildcat should keep the QB on the field.
    In the true wildcat, the QB is on the field, presumably to take advantage of the fact that a defense doesn't have time to substitute unless the offense does as well.
    There are other options that we could use though.
    Having the QB and HB in a shotgun formation, with direct snap to the HB and the QB rolling out to act as a receiver is one of my favorites.
    Put CT in as a slot reciever, and have him drop back to block while TJack rolls out to the weak side, following X reciever.
    Put the TE can block or run a route and the Y receiver goes deep.
    Who do you block?
    Who do you cover?
    Do you cover the QB who is running a receiving route?
    Do you spy the HB who got the ball, especially if he can run...
    Lots of fun stuff there.

    Yep...and couple that with lots of options out of the same formation...keep teams constantly on their toes.
    Espeically if you had 3 or 4 different wild cat formations, each with 3 go to options.
