    That's because we weren't when he took over.
    He proceeded to take the wrecking ball to the team to the point that we were rebuilding.
    I agree, he just destroyed this team.
    He messed them up big time.
    Comeon, what he inherited wasn't as great as some seem to believe.

    Re: C'mon Childress ....... A sing along?

    So in the best case scenario for you, you are saying that Childress is a liar.

    It was him who said "This is a Plum job with alot of talent and we can win right away" Nobody except Childress said that.

    Now, either he is a liar or he overstated his coaching ability. Either way why would you say that fans who hold him to his word are somehow Haters?

    It amazes me how Tice is hammered for being a stupid, worthless coach when those stats show that he took a team and improved it's record while working for a boss who wouldn't spend any money on players, coaches or facilities. The team certainly wasn't super bowl caliber but it was improving from the 5-11 team he inherited and they were at least able to beat the Lions and the Packers along with the Bears once in a while. Childress hasn't beaten the teams in our division and that is unacceptable. Especially considering that 2 out of three of those teams are also rebuilding,just being more successful at it than he is.

    You know that is one of those things that is like a thorn in his side.

    I did a quick search and can't find that comment anywere.


    I am sure that Singer has one hidden someplace.


    Additionally, what I could find was stuff that said he thought they could win "last url" but that is always in direct relation to info about guys leaving (i.e. Culpepper) or weren't gonna play due to injury (i.e. Birk) after he had already accepted the job.

    Long story short, the team did look better on paper than what (IMHO) they really were.

    http://news.minnesota.publicradio.org/features/2006/01/06_williamsb_childress/
    When asked about his chances of going to the Super Bowl next season, Childress replied that he first has to wait and see which players are coming back.
    http://brad-childress-news.newslib.com/story/6534-4/

    Q: Do you imagine using a similar offense to what you used in Philadelphia?
    A: The most important thing is to see what kind of talents these guys posses. I think it is important for us to get up to speed and for all of our coaches to understand exactly what each guy can do and don't ask him to do anything he can't do. I'm looking forward to seeing what exactly each one of these guys brings to the table.
    http://www.startribune.com/510/story/166073.html

    When asked if a head coaching job in the NFL was a dream come true, Childress said, "How about if I just make those comments tomorrow?"
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...301106_pf.html


    But he took himself off the market quickly, taking the Vikings' job in large part because he regarded the team as well-stocked with talent and ready to win immediately........

    Now the season is at hand, and Childress will try to win with a lineup that has lost Culpepper a year after it lost traded wide receiver Randy Moss. But it was Johnson, not Culpepper, who led last season's resurgence, and Childress said he traded Culpepper knowing that he could rely on Johnson. Veteran center Matt Birk said that Childress has made a positive impression.
