    ehh,
    I kind of think that it's part of the coaches job to keep the player's morale up.
    Marrdro's earlier post is pretty much right in my mind.
    The coach, instead of ignoring a highly publicized jab at his WRs, took a shot back at the guy and made clear he would not be joining the team.
    That deflates the old QB's credibility so that the players think George's comment don't really matter and likely stops any reporters from asking the receivers if they'd like to play with George.
    It's not like he cured cancer here, but I think it was an okay response and may have some mildly positive results.
    Probably doesn't translate onto the field though.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    He probably was right, but why try to make yourself look good at the expense of others?

    I still remember the day he fumbled the fricken ball, ran the other way and lost us the game.
    He's crap.
    I still fail to see what justifies anyone saying the Vikings' WRs are crap this year.
    Last year, I agree.
    This year the only one that has justified in calling crap is Robert Ferguson.
    All other WRs have done a good job with what they have been asked to do.
    Sure there have been some drops.
    But no more than most NFL teams.
    Given that MOST of the drops were because TJ fired a bullet on a 5 yard slant shouldn't be counted against the WRs.
    I have seen many times where the QB overthrew the open WRs.
    Are you taking that into accouont when you make the statement the WRs suck?
    Are you also taking into account the great blocking they have done down field on some of the AP runs?


    What everyone is using against the WRs this year is the lack of PROVEN talent.
    That I agree with.
    However when you generalize about the talent that they aren't good you really have no substantial evidence of that except for a few drops in which could go against the QBs.

    You have a ladder, in your book. Whoa.....

    So is the ladder really small or is the book really big?


    Either way Childress is the man. That will shut him up, washed up shmuck. If Jeff George has a problem with that he knows chilly will round-house his ass out a 7th story window.

    If that's the case that means there should never be a dropped pass anytime a WR is able to put a hand on the ball.
    Give me a break here.
