    Childress wanted Spagnuolo

    http://min.scout.com/2/724810.html
    Vikings coach Brad Childress was blocked from bringing Steve Spagnuolo with him from Philadelphia when he joined the Vikings. Now Spagnuolo is a hot property as his team prepares for the Super Bowl...

    Can you imagine what the Childress haters would have done if he brought Spagnuolo over from Philly?

    Re: Childress wanted Spagnuolo

    Would have been interesting if we would have gotten him.. but that doesn't take anything away from what the current and past (tomlin) coaching staff have done within the organization.
    Childress has been blessed with an owner more than willing to let him persue who he wants to be his assistants/coordinators (he has what, 22 coaches under him? lol) and he's got an eye for people with knowledge of the game (Bienemy, Dunbar, Tomlin, Frazier, etc, etc)
    it will be interesting to see how they all grow over the next couple seasons.. as long as we dont lose them to other teams lol

    Re: Childress wanted Spagnuolo

    Very interesting read my friends.
    Thanks.

    As Vikes_King says, we have been blessed with a good owner who seems willing to give the organization everything they need as they pull this team together.

    Maybe the purse strings will be opened a bit for at least a WR and a S or two.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: Childress wanted Spagnuolo

    Childress has been criticized for many things since coming to the Vikings, but his track record when it comes to the staff he has assembled and his evaluation skills of coaches speaks for itself.

    Very good read and a very true comment.
