When the Vikes brought Brad Childress in as the new head coach their were some things that were expect of him. The wants a more discipline coach and an offense of mind. So far Vikes fans have seen he can be a harsh coach not putting up with crap in the locker room or on field. He was brought in here from the Eagles to bring the passing game and offense creativity to Minnesota. The Viking have always had a steady running game. The passing game has been nothing but a struggle for Chilly and the Vikings.
Since his hiring, Childress has finish no better than 18th in the NFL in passing for the season. Since the Vikes brought over the offense wizard, he has shown that he is indecisive at times and not calling the right play for what the situation warrants.
Chilly is trying to acquire Brett"The Fairy" Favre to show more on the offense side of the ball. All Vikes really need is a quarterback that can keep the opposing defense honest on playing run or pass mode. The past 2 season, with the drafting of Adrian Peterson, he has had to face 8 or 9 men in the box. Still he won the rushing title last year(the first Viking to do so).
So it looks like Chilly is getting desperate on keeping his job, so this is why the persistence of going after Favre after the draft. What really is they going to fix, sure they are a Super Bowl ready team. They will be having the SAME problem come next season.
