a Viking blog, but not just
Childress must be fired. Did anyone notice when the Vikes went empty backfield? The best RB combo in the league, an aged qb who's no threat to run, and a collection of marginal wideouts, and we're going empty backfield? Childress deserves to be drawn and quartered for even having that play in the book. With T'jack, ok. The QB draw is a legitimate threat, the defense can't totally disregard the run. But with Gus under center, that call just sucks. What possible offensive advantage is gained by signaling the defense that the play will absolutely, positively, be a pass? We won't even get into the punt. Childress is an idiot.
