    INDIANAPOLIS - Brad Childress doesn't expect new special teams coordinator Brian Murphy to overhaul things, but the Vikings coach does expect to see subtle differences in the unit....

    Vikings coach Brad Childress noted today that his offense and defense have identities.

    Now, he wants his special teams to develop one....

"I don't know if you guys will be able to discern the changes, but certainly in some of the drill work and certainly in presentation, preparation and there will be a different tempo."
    Thats all you got?

    OH, Chilly... Please forgive us... we all can't be super football geniuses as yourself!!! CHILDRESS IS GOD!!!



    Seriously though, what a prick. He undermines everyone and just ends up making a fool of himself and our team.

    Childress also has made clear that he isn't concerned about Murphy putting his own fingerprints on the unit.
    of course then Childress can deny having any involvement with ST's... I've seen CSI and the value of fingerprint evidence
    ;D

    Re: Special teams units not likely to see overhaul

    We should draft David Buehler as the face of our special teams unit.

    He ran like a 4.6 and did 25 bench reps at 6'2" 225. Apparently he can make an open field tackle, and regularly kicks into the endzone.

    I say we get him and watch him wreak havoc on special teamers around the league
    ;D
