Weve tried to give Vikings coach Brad Childress every possible benefit of the doubt through two-plus NFL seasons as the man in charge in Minnesota.

But its over. Were done. There will be no more leeway for the guy who looks like he should be filling out tax returns, not preparing game plans.

Our epiphany came earlier tonight, when we saw the coachs explanation for his decision to punt the ball while trailing by two scores with roughly two minutes to play in Tennessee.

The Vikings faced fourth and 13 from their own 18. We assumed that Childress opted to punt due to fears that the Titans would then try to score another touchdown on a short field.

We were wrong, as usual.

On Monday, Childress explained his decision with this quote: Based on the way we were playing defense, I thought wed have a chance to get it back.

But the Vikings had zero time outs. So the Titans took a knee three times, and the game was over.

A good coach can do the math on the fly and realize hes not getting the ball back.

A good coach knows that, even if he had 10 time outs, giving the ball to the other team with 120 seconds left in the game isnt the best way to put at least 13 points on the board.

Maybe the truth is that Childress feared backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who replaced Gus Frerotte after his hand split open and gushed blood like watered-down gravy spilling from a ladle, would convert the long fourth down, and then perhaps would get a few more of them, and then perhaps would lead the team to a touchdown, requiring Childress to then perhaps revisit his decision to bench Jackson.

A good coach is smart enough to realize that a quarterback who regains lost confidence can only help the team, even if it requires the coach to deal with internal or external voices clamoring for another change.

Childress claimed after his press conference that he simply didnt like the teams chances at converting fourth down and 13 yards to go. And thus we wonder how he felt about the Eagles chances when facing fourth and 26 during the 2003 playoffs, when Childress was serving as Phillys offensive coordinator.

So, regardless of the reason for his decision to punt, weve concluded that Childress isnt a good coach. And we think that, barring a dramatic turnaround, its time for him to go.

We dont spout off opinions like this lightly, and we realize that the removal of a coach profoundly affects a lot of men and their families. But each NFL team is a private business that thrives on widespread public interest, and the folks in Minnesota deserve much more from their local football franchise.

Especially if said local football franchise wants the folks in Minnesota to foot a big part of the bill for a new stadium.

I don't think you will find too many Vikings fans that will disagree with that. I know that this Viking Fan has had it with that pathetic excuse for a coach.

His smug attitude even though he's a loser really frosts my shorts.
I'm all for tar and feathering that POS!...My God he pisses me off.

Take note of the latest "Coaches poll"....wanna guess who is dead last?

NFL Coach ratings

I would just like to know who are the stupid 5% that like the dumb SOB.

ARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH!

Barring an extreme turnaround this season by the Vikings, I don't think Chilly will last long this coming offseason.

I don't mind the guy. What I do mind is his offense. And his playcalls (if it's him calling them). And his OC. And some of his FA acquisitions.

I will say this, he has turned this team around when it comes down to their off field actions.

Just for that, he's a handful of notches above Tice.

Improving the off field drama for the Vikings ... that's like giving the worst player in the NFL last year the 'most improved player' award because he scored one TD this season.


Sorry, I forgot, Vikings fans might not follow what I'm saying. Which is this, when you're garbage, its not hard to clean up :P

Need I remind anyone we have the same record as the Vikies right now?

In all seriousness though, when you have two great backs (Peterson, Taylor) and you bench your QB project after two games (Jackson) and you can only win games by using a veteran that's never held a starting job (Frerotte) and relying on stiff, at times lucky, defense (Winfield sack, strip of brees and blocked FG perfect catch TD) plus the fact that you're play calling sucks (Titans punting blunder) you deserve to be sacked as head coach. The only problem I see is who is better fit for the job right now? They might as well wait for the end of the season so they have a slew of coaches to turn to.
