    Re: Straight Fucking Drivel

    I like the article.
    My dad would use quips and sayings like that...reminded me of my late great Dad.

    The article shows hes not as stuffy and caloused as he appears to be...I just hope it all translates into
    our(once) mighty purple being mighty again.

    Re: Straight Fucking Drivel

    I love this stuff.


    Anybody can come out and tell a player what do and how to do it.
    But to get another person to really thiink, that's a challenge.

    Not that I am like Brad or the great like Lombardi, but I really try to get my players thinking.
    I have said for years to all my players that football is 80% mental.
    I have always preached that what the mind believes, the body can do.
    I tend to steer my speeches towards a "team" effort.
    Getting young kids to really think and watching them "get it" it is a pretty special thing.
    I think it tends to strengthen the coach/player bond as well.

    Interesting stuff. He likes to think outside the box to motivate. I wonder what kinda wierd strange plays he will come up with once his players are ready for them.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    What the hell was wrong with that article?
    The only problem I saw was that it was a little too touchy feely. I think the first segment would have been enough.

    I thought it was pretty interesting though. I feel like Childress has been humbled a bit since taking over the Vikings. He still has his my way or the highway approach, but I think he has become much more attuned to the players' needs and desires.

    Some examples:

    1) In this article the players indicated that he is becoming a better teacher and motivator. ("You can tell he's not just working on schemes" was Leber's quote)

    2) He established the conference committee for his veterans and yielded to their demands in the case of Williamson's game check

    3) He gave up the play calling to his OC

    4) He gave the players a lighter training camp this year after lots of guys got beat up last year

    Those are just a few things that I have observed that show that Childress has grown up a lot as a coach this year.

    I still think he is a bonehead at times and I wonder if he will be a Super Bowl coach, but I think he has made progress.

    I think that's the way it has to be.
