    Childress is in charge of the schemes, gameplans and playbooks... which call for certain players with certain talents.

    So yes, Childress does make a lot of the decisions... if that's what you're arguing.
    Childress decides the positions that he wants and the others find a hierarchical list of those positions with the attributes that he wants.
    It's not as complicated as some would like to believe.
    I know you get it.
    Not sure why others can't......... ;D

    i love this time of year as well, I'm just tired of arguing about who's "stick" is bigger when it comes down to who makes the final call on personnel issues... chilly/spielman or both... ultimately, chilly has a very big role in who we select and who he wants (i.e. foley getting fired instead of chilly) and it's up to him to make it work...

    which he is making progress but has yet to put it all together!

    But if we stick to the facts we would probably only have about 42 pages of threads on this forum, and most of those would

    I may be wrong but wasn't Foley fired because he lied on his resume (not because of who was drafted)?
    Maybe it had something to do with it?

    i think that was the straw that broke the camels back... noone liked him and he had that draft day flame out... so i think when the resume thing came up, that was when shit hit the fan....

    He prob would have been fired anyway..

    regardless my point is, he didn't have the authority to fire childress.. neither does Spielman.. so with that said, who really has the juice?...

    Re: Vikings' 2009 NFL combine

    MINNESOTA VIKINGS
    Three points of interest:


    1. The big question is whether the Vikings will pursue a starting-caliber quarterback or merely look to add depth behind starter Tarvaris Jackson. At least two veteran starters are available. Will we get any hint that the Vikings are going to pursue Matt Cassel, New England's franchise player? Or will they attempt to sign Jeff Garcia?

    2. The Vikings will join the Bears in the hunt for a right tackle. Starter Ryan Cook is under contract for 2009, but it's possible he'll be moved to center to replace veteran free agent Matt Birk. If not, Cook is one of the few personnel weak links on the Vikings' otherwise talented roster.

    3. It'll be interesting to see how the Vikings will approach their defensive tackle position with the suspension of Pat Williams and/or Kevin Williams still a possibility. (Their legal cases remain under consideration.) Both of their 2008 backups, Fred Evans and Ellis Wyms, are pending free agents. Evans is restricted, so the Vikings could match any offer he receives. The Vikings might need to amplify their depth when it's available so they aren't caught surprised later if either Williams loses his legal case.
