    Childress showing a different side as he enters second season

    [size=13pt]Childress showing a different side as he enters second season[/size]

    By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer
    The Associated Press - Thursday, July 19, 2007


    The everlasting image from Brad Childress's first season coaching the Minnesota Vikings featured a stone face, a laminated chart and a low number next to Minnesota's name on the mini-scoreboard in the upper corner of the television screen....

    You my friend, are a true Newshound.
    Great find.

    First impressions are usually strong, but they're not always ultimately accurate.
    like it when someone blames Childress. Its like it is a secret code for My opinion is worthless because I don't know what I'm talking about...Happy Camper

    Thank God he is changing his public image, catering to the morons.
    There is nothing worse than having a stone-faced coach on the sidelines,
    Screw Bud Grant and Tom Landry, they knew nothing about football when they were coaching...it was obvious by the way they looked on the sidelines.

    I'm proposing that anyone that is confused by that post walks around confused their whole life anyway.

    Re: Childress showing a different side as he enters second season


    When asked then what he would've done differently, he replied flatly, "Probably call better plays."
    I don't think he'll find too many who will disagree with that one.

    Hopefully, he'll let the OC make some calls this year. The problem with that is did Childress hire Bevell as a token OC or can he actually call some good plays?

    I am still of a mind that the Chiller called the plays last year for 2 reasons 1) Bevell needed to learn the KAO and 2) All the flack for a bad offense was put on the Chiller and not Bevell.

    Bevell will call the plays this year.

    Well your limited in your response when asked that.

    What would you have done better?

    I would have forced my team to execute my plays......

    Just doesnt work. It was a safe answer.
    If you promise to be smarter, I will promise to be nicer.

    My posts are worth 6 of yours.

    Re: Childress showing a different side as he enters second season


    The Chiller will losen up more this year cause he's already installed the KAO, has a better understanding of his personnel and
    therefore has a little bit less stress. He is showing that he is evolving and growing into his job. He can now focus on public relations and has confidence in his supporting coaching staff. I believe he is gonna take this team where we all want to go....

    You cant continuely call plays your players cant execute. Change the plays or change the players.

    Childress doesnt have a different side. What you see is what you get.
