    Re: Wilf: Childress’ job security doesn’t depend on 2008 playoffs

    Chilly Job will depend upon where we are sitting mid season with our QB situation. WHOEVER the QB is,how they are doing, and how the situation is being handled good, bad, or otherwise will determine where we and Chilly are at at the end of the season.

    lmao, if we're 1-15 next year the morons will be out in full force on this site.
    There are a bunch that never post unless the team is doing poorly....they stop by and post their hate and disappear into the shadows when the team is doing well.
    It would be a good year for them.

    You guys won't need to because if we were 1-15 I would have already killed Childress a couple weeks before.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    I don't see the need for Wilf to keep reiterating that Childress' job is safe and secure...I want to see beads of sweet rolling down that shiney forehead!

    It's all to silence the media. Either way though I wish he wouldn't say it. It's like admitting that he would be ok with mediocrity.

    I disagree with all of these statements.

    I don't think it's all to silence the media.
    If he wanted to silence the media, he would just say, "Childress will be back in 2009."
    Instead, he said that he doesn't evaluate based on benchmarks such as making the playoffs.
    Makes sense to me, and I believe Wilf when he says it.

    I don't think him saying really matters, although I like the philosophy behind it.
    In my opinion, Childress should be judged on his performance, not on chance and circumstance.
    Making the playoffs involves a lot of factors.
    Only one of those is the performance of the coaching staff.
    That factor is probably less important than talent and blind luck.
    Heck, the Browns were 10-6 this year and didn't make the playoffs.
    Even if your coaching staff and team does well, things might work against you.

    And I don't think it means that he's okay with mediocrity.
    I think it just means that he has a long term view of the thing.
    In any given year anything can happen, but not making the playoffs one year doesn't mean your franchise is mediocre.
    It's my opinion that you win more in the long run with stability.
    I think that's Wilf's opinion too.
    I also think that he believes Childress is a pretty good coach.
    It sounds like there's not going to be a change then until that opinion changes or Childress leaves of his own accord.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]
