    Vikings': Trick plays not just pulled from a hat

    [size=13pt]Vikings: Not just pulled from a hat[/size]

    Trick plays are run countless times in practice before the Vikings staff sees an opening to use one in game action.

    The Vikings' offensive meeting last Saturday carried its usual businesslike tone as the coaching staff began to unveil the first 15 plays that would be run the next day against the Oakland Raiders...

    ....and all along I though Chilly was drawing up the gadget plays in a portable hand-held sandbox.

    I belive that childress is a great offensive minded coach. His ability to gameplan the opening drive is impressive. His inability to do squat after the opening drive shows me that he is overwhelmed by the play by play responsibilities of a head coach.

    looking forward to seeing more of them this season, of course we'll all hate when they don't turn out well, but at least it keeps the defense guessing

    thats true but it can be a worry when the trick plays consistently gain more yards than the regular scripted plays. ;D

    Yards are yards... points are points... I don't care who scores them or who generates them.
    Whatever is effective helps teams wins.

    Or not perfect. There is a group of them that plan the opening drives, not just Childress. Bevell & Childress came up with the play in their weekly game planning session with the rest of the coaches.......

    There was nothing usual, however, about the opening play that coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell decided to run against Oakland on Sunday.

    I don't know.
    I think that kevoncox may have hit the nail on the head with that one...

    I don't agree. I got to give him credit along with Bevell for coming up with the play, but a trick play here & there isn't exactly enough for me to start crowning him as a "great offensive minded coach"
    title.

    Especially considering our 4-6 record & watching the rest of our offensive plays this year. We've had a lot of vanilla plays this year & a called run play on 3rd & 12 doesn't exactly scream "great minded" to me.
