    I think he is talking about being hip with the generation and be able to relate to them. Tice could. He can't.
    He also has it ass backwards just like his offense. This is the unofficial [size=10pt]square peg[/size] in a [size=10pt]round hole[/size] picture.

    He does have it backwards... f*cking moron.

    Does he?

    “From being smart, from being physical enough, from being tough, not beating themselves — those are all things that you have to instill. These days, you have to be able to find ways to get with them and communicate with them. You have to be able to not stick a round peg in a square hole. … [But] have I changed a little bit? Yeah, I’ve changed a little bit. These guys [from the local media] know I could do five minutes on Johnny Carson. They didn’t know that the first year.”

    Sounds to me like he's talking about not taking the easy communication solution and throwing some fake personality out at the players, instead waiting for the right fit and the respect/understanding to come naturally with time. And I believe it has. There's definitely been a positive change in morale since 2006.

    Reallly?

    It sound to me like he lacks a basic understanding of the cliche metaphor he's trying to use...

    Sounds like his weekly game plans too...

    Re: Childress talks about making changes

    The title of this thread says it perfectly... Childress talks about making changes... he won't actually make any or even decide to even think about but he can talk about it.... boy can he talk about it

    I hear the Vikes are going to trade for Sage Rosenfels.
    Anybody agree with this action?

    He also has it jiggly butt backwards just like his offense. This is the unofficial [size=10pt]square peg[/size] in a [size=10pt]round hole[/size] picture.

    Holy pooh, I didn't realize that. ROTFLMFAO! Wouldn't a round peg fit in a square hole? WTF. OK Childress is a silly guy.
    Depends on how big the circle is.
