    ================================================
    A few newcomers have QB issues to address

    By John Clayton

    Seven first-time head coaches were hired in one of the strangest postseason scrambles for jobs in recent memory. This was the biggest changeover to first-time head coaches since 1999 when Andy Reid, Mike Riley, Brian Billick, Dick Jauron, Ray Rhodes and Gunther Cunningham.

    Here's a look at the 10 coaching moves this offseason (in order of the hires), and the pros and cons of each situation.

    Brad Childress, Minnesota Vikings

    What he has going for him: As the first coach hired, he was able to put together the coaching staff he wanted. The organization is set up very much the same way it was for Andy Reid in Philadelphia. Childress will have input in personnel. The team, like the Eagles, has plenty of cap room ($23 million). The roster is loaded with talented players on offense and defense after years of good drafting and solid free agent acquisitions.

    The biggest issue: Offense. He has to sort out what works and what doesn't on his offense. Quarterback Daunte Culpepper is coming off triple ligament knee surgery so Brad Johnson will have to handle the offseason as the starting quarterback. The offensive line has holes and needs improvement. Childress has to decide whether the wide receivers fit the West Coast offense. And there are questions in the backfield. Michael Bennett is a free agent. Onterrio Smith hasn't been cleared from his one-year drug suspension. Plus, coming out of the Eagles' system, where there was heavy reliance on passing the ball, does Childress really want to emphasize the running attack?

    I hope he puts some ephasis on the running game. I don't want to see our QB throw 50 passes a game like McNabb did. It would just be more crap like we used to have.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    The fact that Tice actually leaves Childress a talented roster is intriguing. In addition, the cap is in great shape. Making the playoffs is the minimal acceptable deliverable for the upcoming year. West coast, east coast, south beach.....it does not matter.....there is too much talent on the cureent roster for Childress to underchieve.

    How Childress handles the Culpepper affair is interesting. If he dumps Culpepper, he has his excuse (no franchise Qb) while he becomes accustomed to handling the duties of a head coach. Retaining Culpepper and failure leads to Childress sitting in the hotseat.
