    Please extend Chilly's Contract

    Hear me out!

    What were the Vikings facing when Childress came to the Minny-Apple.
    Well, we were just coming off a previous owner and coach that ran the team into the ground.
    We had some players on this team that were mentally beaten down.
    The team was declining in talent.
    Wilf came in and had to deal with the public perception that the Vikings were all thugs and cruise enthusiasts.

    Since then.......

    Chilly has built a roster of character guys.
    Yes, we do have a few McKinnie's on this team, but for the most part, we have been out of the media in this department.

    Chilly has increased the talent on his roster.
    He also continues to coach up his talent.
    Slowly and methodically is his approach.

    Chilly has increased his wins season after season.
    If he can continue to get double digit wins that is a positive.

    Chilly is sitting on a team that most people think is one position away from being a super bowl contender.
    We are like 92-97% there, that is an A- to an A grade.
    Even if he was at a B+ that is worth keeping in my book, the grade is truly subjective.


    Some of the things that I attributed to Chilly, can include the other corners of the TOA.

    I will add more later.

    Re: Please extend Chilly's Contract

    If chilly can do well this season, I'd love him back.
    That means that he's the coach we hoped he was when we signed him.
    However, if he doesn't do well, all that means is he can put together a good team, just can't run it.
    That is an issue, as many coaches are capable of doing that same thing.


    Its something to definitely consider though at the halfway point of this season.



    Oh, and bump to ensure C Mac D sees this :P

    Re: Please extend Chilly's Contract

    Have you been too hard on the Chilly?

    Are you guilty of being an overly negative fan of the Coach?

    Or are you willing to come around to the cool breeze of the Chilly Coach.

    LOL, that will give some a heart attack.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this happens for some of the reasons you mentioned.
    He has assembled a damn nice team that has focused on the lines, as promised, in his first speech given as head coach.
    I'm still concerned that TJack is his Aaron Brooks.
    Will he get over the QB hump or walk the plank?

    He's probably earned it, but I'm not sure it's the best move for the vikings. Many hall of fame coaches don't have jobs and will likely be available. I would definetly wait until the end of this season.

    6-10, 8-8, 10-6.
    Yes, some narrow-minded Childress-loathers want to ascribe that success to Adrian Peterson "dropping into his lap", but I, personally don't.

    The cupboard was bare when Childress took over from Tice.
    Under Childress's leadership, the Vikings (as SIA noted) have put better players on the field and have dropped a lot of chaff (Dwight Smith, Ciatrick Fason, Jermaine Wiggins, Marcus Robinson, to name a few) from the roster.

    Top-to-bottom, this is a better team that has steadily improved to the point where my expectations are high - and that's NOT all dependent on one player as it often was during the Tice era.
    Ask anyone who watched football with me during those years - whether or not the team won was all dependent on (IMO) if Randy was interested or not.

    I agree with that, but if he goes 11-5, and loses against the #5 or 6 seed in the playoffs again, it will be hard to convince many he deserves yet another shot.
    Any great coach with this team could do great things.
    Chilly has a chance to show he's a great coach.
    He needs to win.
    coming close doesn't cut it anymore.

    Chalk that loss up to TJ.
    He needed to play that game to get the experience.
    That blitz from the Eagle was unfair.
    The fact that they were 5 or 6 was a fluke.
    The Eagles with McNabb are always a threat because of his experience.
    That game was another reg season game for McNabb.
    How many NFC championship games has he played in.
    LOL!
    They were coming on strong at the end of the season.

    Oh, who is our GM, the guy from Mia that was suppose to ruin our team, Speilman?
    The Triangle has done well.
