    I agree, it's about time.

    To do what he did with what he had and with Morneau hanging over his head, was remarkable. Besides that mauer not producing like he did in '09, injuries etc.

    Separate standards for Childress, Gardenhire
    Posted by Mark Craig
    Last update: November 19, 2010 - 10:22 AM

    FIRST DOWN:
    In 2010, Ron Gardenhire won a weak division in which only one other team tried finished above .500. He then got swept out of the playoffs, as usual, by a better team. He won AL manager of the year, we all love him, call him Gardy, and there's probably a statue in the works.

    In 2009, Brad Childress won an OK division in which only one other team finished above .500. He then destroyed the Cowboys in the first round, 34-3. He then went on the road and came within 19 seconds of a short field goal attempt that would have put the Vikings in the Super Bowl. Yet we hated him, wanted him strung up, fired or worse.

    Why is that?

    Yes, Childress had the 12 men in the huddle. But his team dominated the Saints for 59 1/2 minutes, only to throw it all away with five turnovers. Gardenhire's players were lifeless for most of three postseason games.

    I'm not saying Childress should have been coach of the year in 2009. I'm just fascinated by the difference in the perception of Gardenhire after his 2010 season and Childress after his 2009 season. Maybe it's a football thing. Or a Vikings thing. Football fans are naturally more uptight when it comes to the coach.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
