Holy fuck Fire Childress.
-----------------------------------------------------------

http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/blogs/106461848.html?elr=KArksi8cyaiU9PmP:QiUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aUz33Dii_9PmP:Qi_vckD8EQD_1cuU

Evidently Brad Childress had a very good reason for letting Randy Moss stay in the Boston area after Sunday's game. He didn't want him to return to Winter Park -- ever.

The NFL Network is reporting that Moss has been waived by the Vikings a day after the wide receiver gave a rambling statement following a loss to the Patriots. Childress attempted to downplay Moss' comments in his news conference this afternoon but clearly he had seen enough after the wide receiver played four games for the Vikings.

Moss, obtained from the Patriots in early October for a third-round pick in 2011, had only one catch for 8 yards on Sunday and had 13 catches for 174 yards and three touchdowns since joining the Vikings.

The end of Moss' second tenure with the Vikings came after Sunday's 28-18 loss at New England.

Moss, who was fined $25,000 last week for failing to cooperate with the media, informed everyone that he would no longer take questions for the rest of the season but instead would ask himself questions and then answer them. Moss then proceeded to praise the Patriots, while criticizing the Vikings for not listening to the tips he gave them about his former team. Moss also took a shot at Childress for not kicking a field goal at the end of the first half and instead going for it on fourth down at the New England 1-yard line. Adrian Peterson lost 2 yards.

Childress disagreed with Moss' assertion that he had not heeded the advice the veteran gave about how New England would approach things. “I think we did a pretty good job of heeding it, both offensively and defensively," Childress said. "He gave us some windows into how we thought they would end up playing. That’s obviously in his eyes.”

Childress, though, attempted to downplay there were any troubles with Moss when in fact he had set the wheels in motion to get rid of him.

“Do I find [the comments] incendiary?" he said. "I just think he was going back to a spot that he has a lot of affection for and I thought by and large those comments were regarding the people there, the coach there, the ownership there and obviously there’s a fondness in his heart for those guys on that football team. Hey, you’d like to go out there and beat their tails off, nothing he would like better, but at the same time he enjoyed his stay there.”

So, now that Chilly pulled this off when do you think he is going to bench Farve and end the streak?

That extension the Vikings gave Childress is looking worse and worse every week now. This sucks for the 50 or so other players plus coaches that come to work everyday and do their job.

Does Belichick welcome him back this season? ... and if he did how insane would the fallout be?

Are the Vikings trying to be more dysfunctional than the Cowboys? Though, after thinking Rex Grossman was an upgrade over anyone in the last 2 minutes of the game, the Redskins might be trying to get in that competition as well.

That pick today would fall between 66th and 69th overall.

Thanks, Chilly.

Really - you've just realized this now?

Frankly I think cutting Moss seems like the right move, if Moss is going to be such a distraction without adding much to the offense.

Listening To Scott Van Pelt in sounds like it may have been a political move.

Now they need to fire the head coach.


Good luck on that new stadium!

I may be blinded by disdain for Favre's behaviors, but I think Childress is trapped between egotistical maniacs who hear from various outlets that they retain superiority at their positions.

It was Childress who picked Favre up at the airport. It was Childress who traded for Moss. I think "is trapped between" should be replaced by "has chosen to surround himself with" in this sentence.

No, I realized this about halfway thru his first game with the Vikes.

First down: run up the middle.

Second down: run up the middle.

Third down: try to throw and get the first down. Fail.


Repeat.

Is Childress the GM?
Not being snarky, I seriously don't know. A lot of time the 'decisions' come from much higher up than the coaches.

An *excellent* question, and even better segue. He is NOT the GM, but not only was the decision to release Moss entirely Childress's, it has been reported by Michael Lombardi that Childress did not even inform the higher-ups that he was doing it! And now that management had found out, Randy Moss was NOT waived by the 4 pm deadline. (Reporters are saying it's still quite likely that Moss will be waived, but holy shit.)

Bold prediction: the Vikings' 2010s will be comparable to the Lions 2000s.

Regardless of whether it was right or not to waive him, I don't really care.

He's a jerk-arse and maybe Randy might actually grow up for once and not be all out for himself.

I don't care if he's "the best receiver in football". That's not an excuse to behave like a totally butt. Maybe if this was peewee football and he was in grade school but not in the professional leagues.

Dare I even say it, but with Finley gone and Driver banged-up, would the Packers make a move to sign Moss?
