    Re: Q&A with Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress

    Q: On a personal note, not to do with football, what was a highlight of your offseason? Was there anything fun you did?

    A: I caught a fish this past week, a goliath grouper. I don't ever fish. Sixty-five pounds off of Marco Island in Florida.
    He must have gotten more enjoyment out of catching that grouper than he did flying with The Blue Angels.

    In a recent interview with the Pioneer Press before the reported Brett Favre tampering allegations, Childress expressed his excitement about the upcoming season, which kicks off Wednesday when players report for training camp in Mankato, Minn. Here are excerpts of the interview, conducted by Vikings beat writers Sean Jensen and Rick Alonzo:
    Says the interview was before the tampering allegations, which was before he flew with the Blue Angels.

    What day did he fly with the Blue Angels?

    Childress flew with the Blue Angels on Wednesday, the 16th i believe, which is the same time the tampering charges came to light.
    So if the interview was before the allegations, would have to be before that as well

    Re: Q&A with Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress

    Q: Who do you look at as your backup at left tackle? Who will compete there?

    A: Well, Artis (Hicks) certainly has the experience to do that. That would be the first guy I'd think of. But there's a bunch of people we're going to roll through there.
    I like it, he's the experienced Back-up and i'd like Chase to mature a little more in the O-line.

    As a football coach, you want to get your best players on the field. Two of your best players are running backs. Is there a way you can better take advantage of that this season, especially with Adrian Peterson working more on his pass catching?

    A: Better take advantage of it? Not unless they play with two balls. I don't think it's going to happen.

    You know, if there's an advantage, a strategic advantage, to playing with two backs, then I'd say yes.

    In the end, there's only one guy who can end up with the ball at the end of the play. You know?
    ROFL! ;D
