    Re: Is Childress a Genius Now???

    Id say no.

    Let's see. Time Management on the final drive of the half burning 40 seconds more then he needed to resulting in Longwell attempting a 58 yarder. Not too good. Having Taylor in too much at the goal line and not your best player causing a fumble. Not very good calls from what I saw. Just overcame by a great effort. They do too much run-run-run-run now run doesnt work so its 3rd in long and we pass-pass-pass until they stop that. No mixing it up. At many times they need to do play action. But hey we walked away with a W against a very dominent Charger football team so lets not look into the negatives huh. I'd just say Defense came to play.

    Re: Is Childress a Genius Now???

    Nooooo.

    We should have been playing like this all year.

    BTW, Viking Nation, great win today !! Let's not let ANYTHING get in the way of us realizing what a HUGE win that was today. We are together, and that means, everyone.

    At the same time, I do think Childress now has the solution:

    a. GREAT DEFENSE
    ;D
    b. ADRIAN PETERSON (the best running back I have ever seen !)

    c. Brooks Bollinger just "driving the bus".

    We can win with this scheme.

    Great defense + the best running back in NFL history can take you a long way in the NFL !!
    ;D

    You know, everyone rips "The Chiller" when we lose and say what an idiot he is, I suppose now people will go the other way because he got the big win again. It's funny how smart and how dumb a coach can get in just a week! LOL.

    Coaches get way too much credit when they win and way too much blame when they lose.
    To be fair, I think Childress had a good game plan and was able to change on the fly after his QB went down. He HAS made some bonehead decisions, but maybe he is getting a little better....

    GO VIKES!!
    Oh PUH-LEASE!!!!!

    If by "genius" you mean, "Able to recognize a gift-horse when it drops in his lap and willing to ride that horse into another year as Head Coach", then I'd say sure.
    But a couple of wins or a couple of losses don't make a coach a genius or a buffoon.
    What defines a coach is the consistency that he displays by the team he fields throughout the season.
    In 1 1/2 seasons, Childress hasn't managed to field any semblence of Offense that hasn't been named Adrian Peterson with the exception of a single game versus Seattle last season.

    No, Childress has a bit of breathing room - courtesy of Adrian Peterson - but Peterson will only be able to mask the problem for so long.
    Unless Chiller drastically improves the rest of his offense, people will see through the BS to the core problem.
    Ask Wayne Fontes about that.

    Re: Is Childress a Genius Now???

    I can't really speak much as this is only the second game I've seen (the Cowboys game being the other), but I was impressed with the defensive calls moreso than what we did on offense (which was mostly just superb execution of simple running plays).
    We were able to do so well because our defense consistently got pressure on Rivers (even if we did only get one sack).
    The pressure rushed him, rattled him and made him make bad throws, a couple nice plays by the DBs and we did much better against the pass.

    I think I'm more suprised we shut Gates down than Tomlinson.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    most of your points im not going to argue since they're valid, but having taylor in too much at the goal line.. you cant put that as a negative point for childress.
    #1 cuz its completely understandable why he did it, he was a productive back as the starter last year and its fair to give him a shot to get a TD here and there.
    Plus taylor is plenty capable of pounding it in for 6, he's proven that.
    And besides, did or did not the "best young player" (who i now have a massive man-crush on) also fumble in that game?


    And besides, Taylor had what, 9 carries? Peterson had 30.
    I think he got plenty of touches lol

    Re: Is Childress a Genius Now???

    I thought it was very good game plan defensively and offensively for Childress. He did mix in play-action passes ... went deep a few times (and hit on one of them) and call a lot of underneath stuff (the West Coast offense). I do think his clock management at the end of the half was a gaffe that could have ended up being quite major ... but all in all ... I say a B+ for Chilly Willy.

    Re: Is Childress a Genius Now???

    i thought this thread was a joke.
    childress did everything he could to lose the game with the way he managed the last 2:30 of the first half, which ended up leading to san diegos 14-7 lead.


    also, why has mewelde not been returning punts when hes active, why is sidney rice and shiancoe not more involved in the offense, and why did it take so long to play some bump and run and blitz a little bit?
    now are these things gonna be permanent changes, or are we going to go back to the same vikings when petersen doesn't rush for 200 yards?

    Re: Is Childress a Genius Now???

    Offensively Im not convinced Today was a Game plan type of day...if so great game plan...I do believe it was adjustments due to injury...



    First half AD only had 40 yards...BCs "project" QB went down(I do hope hes healthy) because had TJ played second half(if he hadnt have gotten injured) I believe we wouldve seen the original game plan, so you have to think first half was original...But you gotta give credit where credit is due great adjustment 2nd half that being said I know AD makes coaches look smarter than they actually are

    But The defensive game plan was spot on...and I know if the defense gets to see they have a chance to win and they arent having to do it all by themselves
    theyll play even better, as well as being better rested between series

    everything you just said, besides the thing about the end of the first half (which for all we know might not even be his fault, could just as easily be tavaris')

    But yea

    why is sidney rice and shiancoe not more involved in the offense
    because we havnt had a quarterback or passing game to get it to them.

    why has mewelde not been returning punts when hes active
    idk what game you were watching, but mewelde was our punt return man today lol

    why did it take so long to play some bump and run and blitz a little bit?
    i know we dont have the sacks to prove it, but if its one thing people have praised leslie frazier for is blitzing a lot more than tomlin did.
    Both coordinators have stressed how important it is to get pressure with your front 4, but we all know u have to throw in some blitzes every now and then.

    He calls a hell of a lot more than were called last year.
