Ship Has Sunk, Please Send Hope

What was on Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf’s mind when he reportedly “stormed” out of the locker room after today’s loss to the Viking’s number one rival? Was it different than after last weeks road loss to the Bears when Zygi simply offered up “No comment” ?

Today’s game completely exposed to the fans and Zygi what a complete wreck the Vikings organization is.  You could see it on the sidelines between coaches and players in the dispute between offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and aging quarterback Brett Favre.  You could see it in the harsh scolding DE Ray Edwards delivered upon rookie CB Chris Cook. Mostly, you could see it Continue reading

Immediate Reaction : Bears 27 – Vikings 13

Chuck Ashley

Chuck Ashley Speaks for Viking Nation

We’re now 3-6 after an embarrassing loss to the Bears.  Arguably we hold the most talented roster in the NFL, certainly Zygi Wilf has made the roster one of the highest paid.

Brad Childress was handed the leagues best RB, best WR, offensive ROY, and NFL defensive sack leader to compliment existing pro bowl linemen on both side of the ball. Chilly works for an owner who has, at least by action, defended him vigorously, allowing the coach to focus on getting the most from his players which he clearly has not done.

Last week, the players got it done themselves – despite their coach – and they came together in the final minutes as a matter of team pride. That same pride was clearly seen in post game interviews and throughout the week.  But there is something about that kind of energy, it’s costly — it drains you.

It was obvious by watching the sidelines this week, when in a similar position, the team did not have much of it left. The effects of last week’s outpouring left a void in the team’s emotional gas tank. They left it all on the field last week. Yes they are the players, but no we can’t place all of the blame on them.

Unless that is, your name is Brad Childress who pointed his finger provided analysis in the post-game presser, “You gotta do your job.”

That’s a good idea… a DAMN good idea.  Do your job Mr. Wilf

Fan Blog: Making Sense of Moss

The events of the past week involving Randy Moss, Brad Childress and the Minnesota Vikings have provided fodder for the usual harsh and premature judgments that the league and media often direct at the star receiver.  However, Childress’ actions would suggest that there is a profound misunderstanding of Moss that is prevalent around the league. Even long-time friend and former teammate, Cris Carter, has admitted that he ultimately does not understand Moss. Moss, he assumes, has issues with authority figures when the receiver begins to doubt their capability.

Childress has also demonstrated a profound lack of understanding and foresight when it comes to Moss. Continue reading
