    Could Childress Win with A QB?

    Anyone?
    As I've been saying, I'm pissed that our Vikings have come to this sad state of affairs.
    Before the season started, I stated many times, that I thought this team could contend for a playoff spot with "mediocre" QB play.
    Quite obviously, we haven't had mediocre QB play...it's been aweful - that's a FACT.


    Regardless of expectations of stats (mine were minimal for the QB) we would be over .500 (at a minimum) with mediocre QB contribution (2 victories alone if the "QB of the week" could hit a wide open receiver vs KC and Detroit).
    Furthermore, the Vikes would be 1-8, [size=10pt][size=10pt]yes, 1-8[/size][/size], without AD by my estimation.

    Defense has underperformed, sorry, they have.
    There are some bright spots, but, I just had to let 30 people go at work...these guys need to buck up, and, I would bet you multiple cases of Liney's that they agree (if they don't, they should be fired, IMMEDIATELY).


    OK, so, here's the question...Can Childress lead this team and WIN, with a good QB?

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know

    No.
    It takes more than a QB to help us win.

    A good QB does nothing for our Pass Defense.
    Plus, our pass blocking needs a lot of work.

    Chiller is fucked either way.

    Well it really depends on who we are playing.
    Against the Pats or the Colts...no.
    Against the Rams or Niners sure.
    Against the Lions who knows.
    We have more problems than just QB.
    Could we have made the playoffs with a good QB
    yeah I think we could have gotten a wild card.
    However we wouldn't go past the first round I don't think without a consistent pass defense, creative play calling, some WR that can get open, and a defensive line that can pass rush against a good O line.

    Re: Could Childress Win with A QB?

    I believe Childress would more than likely be an 8-8 9-7 coach year to year with a great QB and WRs.
    Maybe if we shore up the pass D we could get up to 10-11.
    Childress could most definitely be a above .500 coach with a QB, but you'd spend every year wondering if we're going to make it and then getting beat in the first round after he runs the
    ball up the gut twice and then throws.

    Re: Could Childress Win with A QB?

    Considering how well the rushing offense is doing, if we had a passing offense in the top 10 or 15, that would be a big deal. We need more than just a good quarterback, though. We also need better pass blocking, and better receivers.

    I am still giving Childress a chance, but I am starting to think that our offensive scheme is maybe one of the problems.

    That said, I would definitely give Childress until the end of this year to make the offense show signs of life.


    Go Vikings!

    Re: Could Childress Win with A QB?

    Yeah, I think we'd be a .500 team with a good QB like Anderson this year. The problem is that Childress has shown complete ineptitude in the QB department and probably wouldn't know a decent QB if it smacked him in the face. People say "Oh, we would be good this year with an OK QB." Perhaps, but Childress and the rest of the front office had chances to bring in capable starters through the draft and in FA and instead chose to go with Tarvaris Jackson.

    That said, we could be contending right now in the NFC if we had a QB, a WR, an o-line and a pass rush. Fact is that we don't have any of those and therefore are not contending. We should have ample opportunity to fill those needs this offseason. If Childress is still here and again fails to bring in those key positions, he should be fired on the spot.

    But with a great QB and great WRs around the team we already have in place we should be more like a 13-3 or 14-2 team.

    With our defense, our offensive line, and our running backs, we would have no reason but coaching to lose more than 2-3 games with great QB and WR play.
