    Bro, you might find that you are in minority on this one. I thought that Childress did the right thing.
    im with you, i was really glad when he decided to just let them throw it around for the last couple plays, why risk anything?

    Like what most of you have said I agree that it was the right thing to do by going for the win and not the OT all we needed was for the game to go into OT and increase the chance of someone else getting lost for the season due to injury.

    I definitely was not bothered at all about this. I kind of liked that he went for the win. Overtime just means more chances for injuries in a game where you have already benched 90 percent of the people that are going to make the team. I am happy with the way the contest ended, and viewed the game as a whole as a victory for the new direction the Vikes are heading.

    Just before our game I wrote a post that said something to effect of it will be interesting to see if Childress, like Tice puts a lot of meaning into winning. My guess was that he wouldn't. I'm not patting myself but Childress saw what he wanted and did the right thing.

    i'll congratulate him once he cuts j.t. o'suckalot.
    he personally cost the vikings the game by a) getting that biig sack that put longwell in a really long field goal situation, b) the intentional grounding penalty that took them out of field goal range.
    had he not done one of those, the vikings could have won the game.

    Only one problem.
    He didn't care if they won.
    Mission accomplished.

    Trust me i search franticly and record everything viking related.And i for one didnt
    care that the game didnt go into overtime.All childress did was prevent further injuries and so what if it ended with an interception?The pick was from o'sullivan who im willin g to bet will be cut b4 the start of the season.The depth chart at qb will read b.johnson,T jack,macmahon.I give macmahon the edge cuz he started the last 7 or 8 games for childress last year even thouhg he only completed one pass in the
    game..
