    Re: Still got a beef with Brad Childress?

    Look, we are 6-0.
    There seems to be more ragging on Childress than there is praise.
    This blows my damn mind.
    What also blows my mind is that Chiller gets blamed for everything.
    Hardly ever the execution of the players, but Chiller.


    The guy must be doing something right?
    And for some to still say "Fire Childress"?
    Are you kidding?

    Here's the logic:

    Last year when we lost a lot (not all) put all the blame on Chilly.
    Stay with me here.
    So those of you who did better be putting all the blames for wins on Chiller this year or you make zero sense.


    Were all of our games pretty?
    No.
    Did the Vikes get the job done?
    Yes.

    End of story.

    well, we're not saying fire Childress, the question was "Still got a Beef?" and the answer is yes.
    We are lacking the killer instinct we need to be great.
    Look at the Pats, they were up early on the Titans, but they don't ease up in the second quarter, they keep pushing to ensure there's no chance of losing.
    Our execution is good, which is a reflection on coaching.
    however the mindset and playcalling blows my mind at time.

    So no, not end of story.

    coaches mindset.
    He's too content with punting early in the game, he's too content with field goals instead of touchdowns.
    Running a draw on third and long was a good call the first time, but I haven't seen it work at all this season.
    Time to change it up.
    Childress seems content to play to not lose, instead of trying to win the game.
    Only when the Ravens got within one score did we see the playbook open up again.
    I'm not sure whether that falls on Bevell or Childress, butthe way I see it, Childress has the final say, he can easilly tell Bevell to start playing football instead of pussyball.

    Remember the Titans game last year?

    The titan game where our starting qb was knock out of the game and Jackson came in and was sacked twice and we punted....that game?

    His mindset has won him 6 games.


    I see the draw on 3rd down a lot because 3rd is a passing down.
    Ideally the middle should be open for the draw.
    It just has not worked and you just cannot abandon everything that does not work.
    Also, it is safe.
    3rd and long you do not want to force one and give the other team good field position.
    Besides, watch other games and see how many times teams go for it on 4th down instead of punt.
    It is probably a very low percentage.

    I would put most of the Raven comeback on the Defense.
    I am pretty sure Brad is not calling the Defense or really putting a foot in their ass.
    That is the job of his D-Cord.
    I that guy is fucking it up, boot him.
    The players have to execute their assignments and actually make a tackle, that you cannot blame the coach for.

    I'm not blaming him for the D collapse, however he does have input on offense, and for the past few weeks, we would get up by two scores then cruise.
    We were fortunate enough twice to have drops/missed field goals give us a win, but one of these days that will cost us.

    having said that, as long as he keeps winning, I'm glad to have him.
    Just keep in mind the reason Shottenheimer was fired.
    He'd start out strong, then play to not lose in the playoffs instead of trying to win.

    no, we punted with no timeouts and less than two minutes left.
