    Re: What happened to this team??

    Childress just seems to have an inability to throw his hands up in the air and admit he's made a mistake. So he put in Jackson with no one as a decent back-up. Thus Jackson doesn't have to live with the threat of being benched. How can a player develop when in the back of his mind he knows that the coach has bet his career on you and thus is never going to give you up?

    Even my own team's coach (bear in mind that this is an unpaid coach in an amateur UK league) has a better coaching philosophy than Childress. The week before a game, coming off a loss, he laid it out plain and simple:

    'I don't care if you have the best stats in the team, I don't care if you're top of the depth chart... if you're not showing up then I'll pull your a$$ faster than you don't know what. I'd rather give another guy his shot than carry on waiting for you to step up and play.'

    Next game, they chalked up a win...

    Right. Football is about adjustments. It is not about saying: "F*** it, I am going to force my system through".

    And Childress seems unable to admit he was wrong or adjust. Every team we play gets beat on our first 2 drives, and then they go "hey, they are just running off tackle and rolling the QB out. Find a defensive set that stops that". And then they stop it.

    TJ would be decent with the right play calling!!!

    Put Allison at WR,PR and KR.. Mills and Kleinssaucer at TE.

    Fire Childress and Bevell and get us a coach that knows how to win football games!!

    30 Attempts with Peterson, 160 Yards and all we can show for it is a lousy 15 points all made by FGS??

    Cmon! Attack the red zone, give Tarvaris a chance, Id rather see him try than see us run on third and long again!

    Doesnt this organization realize they are losing fans and they are heading in the wrong direction?

    Cmon Zigy, I know he wants a winning team.
    I knew they should of let childress go after a 6-10 and 8-8 seasons with an all around ProBowl Calibur team (Minus QB and couple others).

    We have one of the best teams in the league and it just tears me apart to see them put to waste like this.

    I agree with this comment a lot. I feel like Tarvaris simply feels uncomfortable with the way we're using him... he can make plays, but he is constantly under pressure and throwing to covered receivers because our play calling is so predicable.

    Yup... you'd think it would be obvious by now.

    Well... I think you know how I feel about this.

    Yup... on all your other points as well.

    Vikings should get Kiffin, fire Childress, T-jack should go play for the Brewers as a closer, and Minnesota should call Culpepper and ask him if he would like to rejoin us, and have him work his jiggly butt off while Gus is throwing bombs to Berrian
