Re:PANTHERS vs VIKES POSTGAME DISCUSSION
I can only respond with a question or two, or three or four.
If Childress doesn't allow any audibles, we are heading back to an offense that will score 20 points a game, and win or lose by 3 points.
If Favre disregards Childress and the value of establishing a running game, we will see more picks, a tired and less effective defense, and have a hard time winning.
I hope Childress is smart enough to realize there has to be a middle ground in all this.
Or this great team could go to waste.
What do you think?
I think you hit the bottom-line. I don't buy into all the bullshit speculation. Favre is ~a two decade veteran in the NFL and should be allowed to audible or I agree that the 20 pts/game and lose by 3 pts is too close to home. That was the case in most losses in the first years of Childress' tenure.
It does make you wonder though, is Childress nadless? Was the dressing in drag forshadowing?
Either way they have 3-4 weeks to get their collective heads out of their asses and play their game in the playoffs.
What is up with the negativity on these boards, supposedly disguised as realism. It is pathetic. The Vikings have a helluva team and the same pundits that are now thrashing Childress/Favre were praising the Vikings just weeks ago regarding Childress' extension and Favre's run at MVP. If the Vikings smeer their opponents to finish off the season then the pundits will be back to sniffing crotch. If they don't then they will continue the drama.
The team needs to start to gear up for the playoffs now. This is the equivalent to preseason. Run the fucking ball down their throats and let them try to stop it and then let Favre tear them apart through the air. The team is built for that.
Is Brett Favre stupid enough to come back and get his body banged around, at his age, and still be egotistical enough to think it is about him and not the team?
I don't think so. Look how he has lit up the careers of Rice, schiancoe, and Harvin.
Is Childress stupid enough to realize that Brett needs to be a part of the game planning process?
I do think so.
I also think the disconnect is Bevell.
The solution to the riff is to include Brett in the game planning during the week.
Let them argue it out during the week so they are all on the same page come game day.
There are a hell of a lot of very talented players on this team. They are capable of winning a superbowl.
Hell, they are the most talented and balanced team the Vikings have had in decades.
Childress and Favre both want to win down to the very core of their souls.
As a fan, all I can say is, don't fuck it up for all those other great players who pour there hearts and bodies out for you, week in and out, because you are so stupid you miss this opportunity.
Childress and Favre, get this shit worked out.
Put yourselves in castoration mode.
Kick the shit out of the teams you face.
And go take the thing that is so rare, the superbowl.
It truly is with in your grasp.
This opportunity, for you two, may never be there again.
