Childress and his west coast offense must go

Recommended Posts

Trainman

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.

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.

      Anyone fishing this lake? How is the ice and bite?
    • freeman82
      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things. 
    • oilandwater
      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...
