Is Anyone Really Surprised?

Minnesota Vikings’ coach Brad Childress was fired today.  After an abysmal performance against the Packers (losing 31-3 yesterday), what everyone’s been waiting for for weeks has finally happened.  Coincidentally, when Dallas Cowboys’ coach Wade Phillips was fired earlier this season, it was also after the Cowboys lost miserably to the Packers.  The Vikings & the Cowboys were both tabbed as among the pre-season favorites but both have drastically underperformed, with matching records of 3-7.

Fans have been calling for Childress to be fired for weeks now.  Even the players haven’t been supporting their coach.  They anonymously were quoted as saying they didn’t have his back because he didn’t have theirs.  Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will take over as interim head coach & has already answered the big question & his answer is yes, Brett Favre is still the starting quarterback.  It seems to have worked for the Cowboys, as they have won the 1st 2 games under their new coach so let’s see how this goes for the Vikings.
