Re: Your opinion of the Vikes "Weakest Link"
I would think Childress had a hand in helping McNabb become what he is and as for your other examples it was McMahon's first and only year with him, McNabb wasn't a star in year one. Feeley landed them a second round pick so he did somethingto help himand to make him look like a desiralbe option. Ty Detmer was never meant to be a starter he was reliable backup for them he came in when needed and did his best.
It takes years for most teams to find and develop a player like duante and unless we trade up to get brady quinn next year in the draft were no less than 6 years from sniffing the super bowl.
Childress is known for his work developing QBs
, so I think that is an ace in our hole. Also, six years is a bit extreme. Even if our QB situation is a bad as you say (which I disagree with), we are really only one offseason move away from "sniffing the superbowl".
I wish people would stop passing along that myth! Childress has had a hand in developing ONE good QB, Donovan McNabb. And I give most of the credit for McNabb to Andy Reid - and McNabb himself. He was a winner at Syracuse and that means a helluva lot more than having a great throwing motion or being 6'5".
Don't forget that Childress also had a hand in developing Mike McMahon (who everyone here fears more than ebola), AJ Feeley, Ty Detmer, etc. Any big names there?
