    Childress ho hum

    In responding to the Vikes inability to exploit the stacked box Sunday night, Childress said,

    "We’ll need to take advantage of those people that we have in the game, being able to spread them out and move them around and that type of thing."

    Well, duh!
    When's he planning on getting around to taking that advantage? Only one game left, and it very well could be meaningless when the Skins in all probability beat the Boys. Isn't it common sense that a team has to take advantage of what the defense gives them? Didn't he know this before the Skins game? Assuming he did, why didn't he try "that type of thing" Sunday instead of planning on trying it in the future?

    You act like Childress was throwing the football.
    Remember that Jackson tossed 2 picks in his first eight passes.
    That makes it just a little bit tougher to call pass plays and it makes it harder to stretch the defense.

    It is too easy to sit here after the fact and criticize every little thing that Childress did or did not do.

    The way the team came out after halftime means BC is doing his job. They were inspired and they were prepared. Sadly most big adjustments are made at halftime.

    Hi jessiejames...Not sure I can get on board with that statement. Here's why

    Childress and the Offensive C knew WAY in advance of the washington game what was coming. It started with GB stacking the Box and continued into SF...and against the Bears, so in a way they these coaches had more than 12 quarters to devise a better game plan strategy to beat the 8 man front. T.Jack not withstanding! The coaches are not helping him enough to get into any type of early game rythm with some short play action, swing and screens on first and second down, which would also force the defenses to have to respect the possible pass to the back, WR on a slant, or pass to a TE. When we get a good play we never come back to it enough or run other plays off of it's success.

    We don't seem to have a clue offensively on how to use Taylor or Peterson in any other formations or gadget plays like tosses, shovel passes, or lining either of them up as slot receivers and making a LB or Safety responsible for covering them. It's almost always run left...run right...run middle...and almost every time it's on first and second downs, against an 8 man front, leaving T.Jack with 3rd and long....desperately trying to make a play...and throwing the INT instead.

    Anyway..That's what I have witnessed in the last 4 games.

    Cheers!

    Football is a game of preparation and adjustments.
    Gibbs had his team better prepared.

    If Childress had a clue they would have known the box owould be stacked and have plays ready for that at the first snap....not halfay through the god damn game

    Yes it is....So where are our preparation and adjustments in the biggest game of the season??

    That's what made it so unbearable to watch happening.

    I am sure that the common person such as you find it hard to see.
    To me, Gibbs and the Skins were prepared better.
    You gotta believe that Brad had the Vikings prepared, but the game plan did not work.
    Just because the ajustments do not work does not mean they were there.
    Hard to prepare when you turn the ball over as many times as we did; just something you do not prepare for.
