    Easy Practices? Childress doesn't think so

    [u][size=13pt] Easy Practices? Childress doesn't think so

    MANKATO - Brad Childress is somewhere between amused and annoyed about the way the media has portrayed his training-camp practices.

    Re: AUG. 13th Star Tribune Viking News

    All around some very good reads. Thanks for tracking those down.

    My one comment would be that it would be worth breaking these up into different threads. I feel like each article warrants its own set of reactions. I know that I would like to offer up opinions on at least two of them, but I'm holding back for now because it seems like there would be too much going on for one thread.

    True, I guess you could quote the title of the article, but I understand were you are coming from. I thought it would clean up the articles, but then again it messes it up at the same time... hmm... I wait for an official decision by higher ups.

    Was that taken when he started to grow the beard or has he shaven it recently?

    It seems to have been necessitated by roster limits, and Brad Childress appears comfortable with his team.

    Although nobody realized it, Brad Childress set the tone for the type of training camp he wanted to conduct a day before his team practiced for the first time this summer....

    Times have changed at training camp. Now, the old-school, hard-hitting approach is unnecessary - and possibly counterproductive.
