    Yeah he is such a bufoon!! As are all the other coaches in the NFL who didn't start someone right away who blew up eventually. Look at that idiot Parcells, he should have started Romo a long time before he did!

    Maybe I shouldn't pick on one statement, but that just made me laugh. If a person decides he doesn't like Childress, they will try to blame absolutely everything on him!
    I kindof just blew his comment off.
    Thanks for addressing that my friend.
    ;D

    I'm sorry, i shouldn't say that, but i do hate Childress with a passion. I'll try to keep it to a minimum in here though.
    Ha, you can dislike Childress all you want, you can hate AD if you want (that may be stretching it a bit ) this board wouldn't be any fun if we didn't have people with different opinions. But the major thing is that it doesn't cloud your judgement of that person concerning football There are a few of those that are around here to and you don't want to become one of those, lol.
    ;D They tend to blame absolutely everything and anything on him whether its his fault or not.

    I probably shouldn't have jumped all over one little statement like that though.

    Welcome to the site if I haven't said it already

    Thank you, i was referred here a while ago by one of the people that post on here, but forgot what i originally signed on as, and finally was fed up with the site i've been on for 2 years and decided to resign up here.
    I'm a Tice guy, and am bitter about how he was let go, not being given a proper staff, and an owner that wouldn't spend a dime, much like Ebeneezer Pohlad. So i take it out on Childress, but i shouldn't.
    I hope Childress can succeed, becuase that means my team wins, and that is more important than any personal feelings i have towards a person
    Very nice insight.
    Thanks my friend.
    Lots of people (me included) like coach Tice.
    He had issues with trying to put a team on the field with crappy front office support as his biggest problem, but I also think that just like us, his team liked him and didn't respect him.

    Hard thing to be a leader when you are like and not respected. ;D

    There can be alot of argument as to where are weakness is most on Offense, WR, QB, TE, but our ROT to me seems like the logical place to go considering the handful of prospects that are considered 1st round to early second this year. I have to agree with alot of people that say ryan Cook is not the answer at RT. However I do think that he has a future at C, which is more of his natural position. So unless we pick up a FA(max Starks would be my choice), it seems like a solid choice to make.

    Every site is different and i am sure that I will miss one but from what
    I have read Jake Long is the clear cut #1 choice for a OT and mine to but
    looking at everyone in no particular order

    Jake Long-Michigan
    Ryan Clady Boise St.
    Jeff Otah-Pitt
    Gosder Cherilus(I love the name)-BC
    Anthony Collins-Kansas
    Sam Baker-USC
    Chris Williams-Vandy


    Why would they spend two seasons training Cook to be a RT and then move him back to center?
    From what I understand, Cook does not have desirable size for the center position, even though that was the position he played in college.
    Maybe he would be better served as a center or guard though.
    I guess that's why we have a coaching staff that decides this stuff for us.
    Very nice points my friend.
    ;D

    You hate Childress?
    Why?
    Did he run over your dog, steal your girlfriend, leave a flaming bag of poop on your doorstep?

    I really think the word "hate" is overused and really should be reserved for people with which you actually have a personal connection beyond them being a coach of a team for which you cheer.

    =Z=
    And I was feeling kinda bad for picking on one sentance, lol.
    ;D

    I do agree with you though.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    No - because now you're subverting your true feelings in an effort to either appease me (really, I'm not worth that much effort) or be sarcastic.

    I certainly did not say you needed to like Childress.
    You're absolutely entitled to your own feelings on the matter.
    I just detest the casual use of the word "hate", the strongest of all negative emotions.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I don't quite agree with you on a couple of points.

    a.
    I think Cook is the answer at RT.
    As with all the rookies and second year players, he was kindof in a trial by fire with probably (next to TJ) the steepest learning curve.
    Did he have problems?
    Hell yes and I would have expected them.
    Were some of those compounded by QB play.
    Sure.
    Was there some that just came from bad line calls by the C.
    Yes.

    He will be fine and he will be at RT for alot of years barring injury.

    b.
    I don't think he is the heir to replace Birk at C.
    He IMHO is way to tall.
    the C is usually the guy responsible for clearing the primary passing lane.
    If he doesn't quiet do that but still holds his guy the QB can still see over him if he isn't like 6'6".

    c.
    Anybody else drafted this year would go through the same learning curve that Cook is/has just went through.
    What makes you think a guy picked at the 17th position would be able to just step right in and accomplish that.
    I for one find it amazing that Joe (picked a heck of alot higher last year) did as well for the Browns as he did.

    If anyone is picked by the Vikes for any position I anticipate them looking at a C (3rd/4th) first as a future replacement for Birk.
    Then possibly a G/T swingman in a later round.
    only just seen this thread. Have to agree with Marrdro and say that we draft a center before a RT - as long as we draft a true center and not a tackle or guard that needs converting to center. It's certainly an area that needs to be seriously looked at soon, else we will have a good OL and then have a center who is still learning.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Re: What about a OT in the first round?

    I would not be totally irked by the thought of getting an OT in the first round. Obviously Long is great, but there are a few good ones behind him. I like the kid from USC a lot. I think we will probably look DE or safety in the first round (Kenny Philips will be tough to pass on if he is around when we pick), but I would not hate the thought of picking a tackle to help sure up our pass blocking.
