Childress and his west coast offense must go

21 posts in this topic

Here's a constructive topic that everyone can enjoy.

Run, run, run on 2nd and long, then pass incomplete on 1st and goal at the 3. Have you every seen a more gut wrenching display of terrible offense game planning during todays game against Miami?

Then let's wait until there's 1 second left in the game to score a touchdown and try for an onside kick. Oops...no time left.

Pathetic is all I can say. 4th & goal on the 1 yrd line and you settle for 3pts, common. Chester has been runnung all game and you can't give him the rock for a 1yrd TD?? This coach is as pathetic and conservative as they come and you can't ne like that in the NFL, takes chances.

Does Childress call the plays himself??? If so I want to know who really called the plays in Philly because is obviously wasn't him. And I think Johnson needs to be replaced, hate to say it becasue he is a class act, but he is just getting hammered on back there and making some very poor decisions. How can a team have the #1 rush defense in the league and suck so bad?

Sherrif might pull one off at the dome even.

I am pretty sure Andy Reid called the plays when Chili was still in Philly. It doesn't seem to me that they adjust to the other teams adjustments-- if you get what I mean? In other words they come out well in the beginning with a decent game plan and usually score early on. But then the other team will adjust and start to shut them down. Then Chili doesn't seem to adjust to the adjustments the opposition just made.

In case there were lingering doubts before yesterday...THIS TEAM STINKS! mad.gifmad.gif I swore them off after losing to San Fran, and this news re-doubled my efforts at avoiding the mysery of watching even one more game.

Man, am I glad Childress never got a chance to come to GB. I know McCarthy has his faults, but at this point in the season I'm happier with McCarthy. Looks like MN will be picking ahead of the Packers once again.

And thats really saying alot... besides it's after 10 games.... 4 weeks ago you wouldn't have said that and in four more weeks you may change your mind again. I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin'.

lawdog if you swore off the vikings then why are you posting on this thread?

Childress has done a pretty good job overall. The bottomline is that the players (who get paid alot more than the coach) need to execute the plays. I can't remember a time in minnesota when the fans weren't pissin and moaning about something.

Actually MN ranks in the upper third for plays over 20 yards but I would like to see a little more aggressiveness in the play selection. Let see a few reverses in there and I think I can count on one hand the number of screens tossed this season. Granted the last one thrown went for a TD , the other way. But you have to do more then pound it twice in the line and then try and get a first on a short 3rd down pass that everyone knows is coming. Of course you got to have the horses to pull the wagon and MN does not have that. D is easier to pull together as one player can make an outstanding play and stop a play, On offense it takes several players to click together to make a positive play. I'll keep watching but glad I play fantasy football so I have other teams to pull for. Of course all of us arm chair quarterbacks always have the answers. I just don't think they have come together as a team, very seldom does that happen in a year with as many changes as the Vikes have gone through this year. But like all fans we want to see our team win now.. not next year.

execution, execution, execution (not execute the coach)....any offense looks bad if the players don't execute it the way it was designed.....to much time spent on the defense in the off season and not enough on the offense......give childress a break...how many great coaches had horrible first seasons....Jimmy Johnson...tuna....billick....ect ect. fair weather fans can all move to greenbay!!!!

I know the players are to blame, but The coaches gotta call better plays. If its 3rd and long you dont run routes that are only 5 yards long. run, run, pass How predictable is that

biggest difference between Chilli and the rest is that Chili started with some talent, Zygi spent money on talent. (Granted, some of the talent is playing terrible, T-Will, McKinnie, Birk, etc...) we all figured they would be poor this year, but not this poor. I do believe that you've got to give a coach at least 2 years to get established. What bothers me is how Darn BORING the games are. This team is just a snoozer. Poor Paul Allen has nothing to yell about.

Well, I'm still not changing my mind. The thing is MN was suppose to be one of the best coaching jobs out there last year, because they were the "closest playoff contender" team out there and that is why Childress went there. With the additions they brought in they are almost worse than last year. While the Packers, Jets, and Saints are improving the Vikings seem to be taking a step back.

Vikings are a good team this season, they only lack solid wide receivers.. Trust me, with solid wr's, Vikings should be playoff contenders again!

Supa, are you watching the same games that we are? The O line, (for having 2 probowl players) is terrible. Whether its holding, offsides, or just plain breaking down. It seems like all five can never block at the same time, someone always gets beat. Our QB's get their buts kicked.

On Defense, yeah our run defense allows very little yardage, but who would run against us when the pass is so easy to come by? We are not a good team, we were a good team last year, this year, we are a bad team. We are a long way from becoming a great team, even from becoming a playoff team.

I listened to Chillys press conference on the radio today and he called his offense "kick A&&". Man he must think hes coaching a Joe Montana led 49ers team. What a (Contact Us Please). The Vikings suck!

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good. 
    • Tom Sawyer
      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait
