    For Vikings, trust a must

    For Vikings, trust a must

    Favre earned it from his teammates, but Childress not totally there with QB

    January 14, 2010

    ...

    "While he's largely hands-off, overseeing all aspects of the team, Childress asserted his influence in December, particularly for the Dec. 28 game against the Bears at Soldier Field.

    Childress was insistent on running the ball, and the Vikings handed off to either Adrian Peterson or Chester Taylor on 14 of their 23 first-half plays.

    The result: The Vikings trailed 16-0 at halftime.

    ...

    'If (Childress) just manages and doesn't meddle, then we have a chance (to win the Super Bowl),' one source said. "

    The offensive gameplan also must include blocking schemes to handle the blitz from various locations. That was missing against the Cardinals and Panthers, but the Vikings did better against the Giants.

    We'll soon see how well the Vikings did their homework.

    Childress set up run-first gameplans for the first two games as well, and the Vikings started off slow. The Vikings cannot afford to do that against the Cowboys.

    I hope the Vikings coaches have watched some Walsh WCO film to see how the WCO is actually supposed to work. I think Favre and Bevell get it.
