    Re: Positivity flows from Childress about offseason

    I am very excited to see 2 things in particular this year.

    Chad Greenway
    Adrian Peterson

    I am also looking forward to seeing our QB, but given our conservative play calling from last year, and what I would believe to be an improved running game, there may be a lot of handoffs.

    I am also very interested in a non player this year....Coach Childress.
    I think he had a tough year last year as he felt out his own style, and things may change this year.

    In addition, I am curious how our pass defense performs this year, since we were suspect at times last year.

    Now, going back, the bulk of my excitement comes with Greenway and AP, and I was
    HUGE Taylor fan.


    I hope AP is not a hold out.....someone please make sure this does not happen.

    Greenway may hurt someone this year.
    I am hoping for HUGE improvement in our LB crew.
    Maybe even get some sacks from some of them.

    Re: Positivity flows from Childress about offseason

    We can't sign him until the six picks above us sign right?

    I mean we could but his agent won't do it for financial reasons. I don't think it will be a problem.

    I'm going to see AD today down here in Texas! Anything you guys want me to tell him?

    You are right Marrdro.
    People who look at just the win/loss record of a team are missing a great deal of information.
    Records can be misleading.
    Take the Bears for instance.
    They might have finished the season 13-3, but they are hardly a 13-3 team.
    I think we will see that more this year, as they show some Regression Toward the Mean.


    We lost six games decided by less than a touchdown.
    We also won three games decided by less than a TD.
    Those all are games that could have easily gone either way, and unfortunately we only won 1/3 of them.
    Had we won closer to 1/2 of them instead, just two more games, we would have finished at .500 and had a chance at the playoffs.
    Had we won 2/3, we would have had a winning record and definately made the playoffs.

    The Vikings are not as bad as last year's record implied.
    Does that mean that we will definately finish with a better record? NO.
    But the odds are in our favor.

    It cost way to much, so I turned around and drove home.
