[size=18]Vikings working out punters[/size]

Vikings coach Brad Childress followed through on his harsh words for punter Chris Kluwe today, working out four punters after practice.

Asked on Monday night if Kluwe wasn't able to direct his punts out of bounds, Childress said, "You know what? if he can't do that, I'll find someone that can kick the ball out of bounds."

Ya, Kluwe could have done better, but IMO that is one of the lesser problems facing the Vikings.

Personally, I think that Zygi Wilf should be bringing in some Head Coaches for a work out...Childress is the one that needs to get "the message"

Zygi Wilf " You know what? if he can't do that, I'll find someone that can call plays and get the team on a winning track ."

Of all the problems.....Childress is #1

P.F.T. Said it best.

It is rare that a head coach calls out a single player and throws him under the Bus. He is digging a big hole, by blaming a single player for his failures as a coach.

When do the Vikings have a bye? Ahh Yes. Right after the loss to the Bears October 19th. My guess is... Monday October 20th he will be given a career adjustment. Or more blunt... FIRED.

Vikes... Who on your coaching staff is the best candidate to take over the team for the rest of the year interim?

Here's a bit from the Minneapolis paper about Brad Childress, which I scammed from the Sports Illustrated web site:

Evidently new Vikings coach Brad Childress hasn't been mincing words in meetings with his new players. "They look at me and there is just a little bit of, 'Who is this guy? What does he stand for?' " he said. "What I told them is, 'You didn't pick me, I picked you.' Because if I didn't take this job I was going down the road to take the job with the Green Bay Packers."
-- Minneapolis Star Tribune

Sounds a little arrogant, as if he thinks the Green Bay job was his for the taking. But I suppose he's just trying to get his team fired up by mentioning their arch rivals. It could add some spice to next year's Packer/Viking games.

I've heard that they are presently in talks with Matt Millen. They figure, as lousy as Millen was as a GM, he HAS to be great at SOMETHING. They are hoping it's being a head coach.
