    I have to laugh.

    Childress constantly called stupid plays.

    Would Childress have allowed Favre to run the naked bootleg yesterday and ice the game?

    No......Childress was far too much of an insecure ass to allow Favre to shine like that.
    Except, of course, for last season where Favre had the best season of his career.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Yawn.

    That was then, this is now.

    Maybe someday you will learn to tell the difference.

    Re: Vikes lose to Skins

    Didn't see a big difference in the play calling other than a more focused approach to the run game. This has been my complaint for most of the season. I understand that the game dictates going away from AP or TG but our team needs the run in order to be effective in the pass. Where I was pleasantly surprised was in the level of intensity. They all seemed focused on the task at hand for the full 60 minutes.

    As to the naked boot to ice the game, come on guys.......that was a designed roll that turned into the Skins goading Favre to run it. He did and it was a good play, and it iced the game, but this was not by design. Had the LB come off the receiver in the flat, Brett wouldve thrown it there. He took the option that was most open which is what should be done.

    Overall I like the direction thus far with Leslie. What I really liked was in his initial interview where he said "we want to get this team back to a level where fans are proud to be Viking fans again."(or something close to that) I know it was said for affect but it resonated with me.

    Skol!

    A damned good thing they didn't simplify the naked bootleg out of the offense!!!

    I guess that shows that they are confident in Favre's ability to move.

    Huh?

    I've seen the play a number of times now.

    There was no goading from the Skins.....just panic when they saw the space he had and realized he was going to ice the game.

    Frazier acknowledged that it was a naked bootleg called by Favre with his approval.

    It was a tremendously intelligent call because a run by Favre was the LAST thing the Redskins expected. Sheer genius....sheer guts.

    Facts are always better than speculation.
