    Vikes lose to Skins

    If the Vikes lose to the Skins, then where do you stand?

    Coach or the players causing the issues?

    Or too early for referendum on Frazier (I am not expecting much, but maybe a spark with new leader)

    First of all, Childress was a huge part of the problem....as things got worse he got more defensive, obnoxious and insecure rather that being the rock that the coach is supposed to be.

    Second.

    Too early to tell anything about anything.

    But it could be the start of better things.

    I really think there was a lot wrong with the team, whether we win or lose.

    Childress had major issues, but it goes beyond that IMO. Favre is playing terrible, the line(s) is/are playing terrible, and the team has no heart. SOME of that is Childress, but some of it has to go deeper....

    Lets hope the boys have heart back; heart alone should beat the deadskins.

    It would have to be both.

    As I stated before Childress may be gone, but his buddies, some of which shouldn't be coaching at the pro level, are still there.

    The pus is gone, but there's still infection.

    This is a .500 team we are going up against who is 29th against the pass & 27th against the rush.

    If we don't come out of this with a win and/or a very impressive offensive showing with Favre & Bevell being given the greenlight to do what they want, there's no other place to look but at the players on offense.

    Bevell will still be Favre's "Yes" man, just as he was in GB.

    Probably why Favre likes him so much.

    It seems in recent history, whenever Favre has a bad year, a HC or OC gets fired, whether it's in GB, NY or MN.

    If it continues, another coach/assitant coach may go

    Childress is gone but we are left with the staff that he put in place and the system he wanted to run. The guys taking his place are his guys and I am not expecting the change to be earth shattering. I would like to see effort from every player on every play and if we get that I would say we went in the right direction.

    Re: Vikes lose to Skins

    When I first saw this thread I almost was shocked cause I thought the game was moved and they already played and lost to the Redskins. :lol:

    For me, it's not whether we lose or win. It's about how the Vikes play.
    If the Vikings play as horrible as they have done lately, it doesn't matter if they win.

    None of this makes any difference if the Vikings continue to be unable to play on grass.

    But I'm optimistic today.

    If they lose, I'll still be optimistic because I think that the worst obstacle has been removed and things will get better as we go along.

    A big +1 on that.

    Wins and losses don't matter any more at this point. It's all about attitude and effort.

    Attitude and effort seem good today.

    We need to put pressure on McNab or he's gonna take our secondary apart.

    Good thing is.....I don't see Vikings slipping on grass.

    Last run for a first down Frazier asked "What do you feel most comfortable running?" Farve answered "How 'bout a bootleg?" Frazier says ok....history.
