    Re: Daily Norseman Interview With Brad Johnson

    ....did Childress limit what you wanted to do with his "Kick Ass Offense"?

    [After the interview was over, Brad asked me if someone from the current coaching staff had told me to ask him that question. I thought that was rather telling. After I calmly replied that my fellow DN writers and I were simply curious as fans, he then gave me a much more personal, honest answer. Being the classy guy that he is, Johnson asked me not to share it here, but it shouldn't be too hard to read between the lines.]
    Is there anyone here who can't read between the lines?

    He limited all of his QB's & tried to do it with Favre. It didn't go over well with Favre. Childress, IMO, is the main reasons he was reluctant to come back in 2010.

    Couldn't agree more. That was said way back in the start of '10.

    I said it in 2010, 2009, 2008 & 2007. We knew it in 2006 when Childress forbid Johnson to call any audibles. We heard about it again in 2008 when Frerotte said in a November interview that he only audibled twice. We saw it publicly backfire on Childress in 2009 with Favre & Childress' "heated discussion".

    I wasn't a big proponent of bringing Favre here in 2009, but one thing I was sure of, Favre knows a hell of a lot more about running an offense than Childress ever will.

    You're actually a bit off with that my friend.

    He allowed Brad to audible. What he did do was stop him from doing it when Brad kept audibling out of plays that required him to throw the ball further than 10 yards.

    I think a point that keeps getting lost in all of this "Audible" discussion is that for the WCO to be successfull, much like a chess match, it has to set the defense up.

    HC's/Ocoords have a gameplan to do that. When a QB refuses to follow that game plan then the winner of the chess match will often be the defense.

    As to why the Noodle was allowed to audible in 2009 but then wasn't in 2010, to me, atleast, was pretty obvious.

    In 2009 the Noodle for he most part played within the scheme and the W/L's reflected it.

    In 2010, well, lets just say that a QB who wants to hold the ball to long and chuck it deep all the time, just isn't gonna win any chess matches my friends.

    For a second there I thought the guy in the picture (facing camera) was Johnson. Thought to myself, "Wow, he's really let himself go". A slight resemblance though eh?

    To what? As recently as last week I posted articles that said he held the ball to long.

    Favre wasn't allowed to audible freely like you're suggesting. Favre just did it because that's what Favre does. That is what the heated debate was on the sidelines in 2009.

    Had Favre listened to Childress & run plays exactly as scripted, the Vikings wouldn't have even sniffed the playoffs.
