When did the Vikings hire Major Dad?
Despite not being able to run the ball, stop the run, keep anybody on our defense healty, and get any pressure on the quarterback...at least we don't have Brad Childress as our coach.
The Vikings faced fourth and 13 from their own 18. We assumed that Childress opted to punt due to fears that the Titans would then try to score another touchdown on a short field.
We were wrong, as usual.
On Monday, Childress explained his decision with this quote: “Based on the way we were playing defense, I thought we’d have a chance to get it back.”
But the Vikings had zero time outs.
So the Titans took a knee three times, and the game was over.
Childress claimed after his press conference that he simply didn’t like the team’s chances at converting fourth down and 13 yards to go. And thus we wonder how he felt about the Eagles’ chances when facing fourth and 26 during the 2003 playoffs, when Childress was serving as Philly’s offensive coordinator.
