Vikings Coach Brad Childress Safe For Now, Despite Brett Favre Remarks
It has been public knowledge that the Minnesota Vikings and head coach Brad Childress clearly aren't on the same page, as displayed by last week's stunning release of wide receiver Randy Moss. Moss was acquired just three weeks prior to his release, and Vikings owner, Zigi Wilf, wasn't happy.
Wilf wanted Moss back in Minnesota, but Childress had the last say, with regards to the control over the final 53-man roster. Throughout the week, reports surfaced that Wilf was searching for reasons to fire Childress, but after an impressive overtime victory over the Arizona Cardinals, Childress may be safe. For Now.
After the game, Childress was questioned about his current status as head coach of the team, and he responded, "I'm not going to come up here looking for hugs like Brett Favre."
He insisted it was a joke, but the crew at Football Night in America didn't seem to think so. Rodney Harrison said Childress needed to respect Favre, who has been around the game far too long to deserve a low blow from the head coach, and Tony Dungy said that it didn't sound like a joke.
We all know Favre and Childress haven't seen eye to eye in the past, but this may be another step in moving Childress out of town.
