I am confused about why so many think Childress is a good OC. Reid called the plays when Childless was in Philly and the O in Minnesota only started dominating when he had both Favre and Peterson at the top of their game. I question if he really is a good OC.
I wouldnt even question it. Hes not. Hes an awful coach. I have no idea why every fired coach or cut player is suddenly wanted to badly.
Honestly? Probably because he runs the WCO.
That in itself is enough to get people around here on board.
lol He's a pretty good OC. Everyone wants to remember how his stint with the Vikes ended and not the fact that he was the HC of a team that went to the NFC championship game or that he was a good OC in the first place and made the playoffs while starting Tarvaris Jackson and Gus Frerotte. I don't understand why you guys hate him, he's not a great HC as far as managing egos and making personnel decisions but he knows offense.
Oh and btw don't forget the fact that damn near everyone in this league has changed teams in FA, been cut, traded, fired, etc. People want guys from other teams because they might be better or as good as the guys on our team and we friggin suck.
You really didn't give any argument for Childress being a good OC. Yes, the Vikes made the playoffs with a crappy QB, but they had a great D and the best combination of running back and offensive line in the league. The offense of the Vikings doesn't appear to be inventive or unpredictable so I don't think Childress is really inventive or creative.
Childress only had one NFL OC position prior to being a HC and that was for the Eagles. While he was the OC of the Eagles Andy Reid called all of the plays so can you really can't grade Childress' OC prowess based on that job.
Once again I ask: Why does anyone consider Brad Childress a good OC?
Yeah but he managed to run against 8 in the box all year. Yes his OLine was great and he had AP, but we have Gore and multiple first rounders on the OLine and we can't do s**t. It's not even always about talent or position coaching on the line, if you're running on 8 in the box succesfully you need to be unpredictable and be a good coordinator to pull that off. That's one of the hardest things to do in football dude. Then he makes the NFC championship game and would've won if Favre hadn't tossed the ball to the other team and AP hadn't fumbled like 4 times in that game. You're all jumping on him after 1 year where Favre took over his lockerroom and his players say they hate him, but if you're an OC then the players go back to liking/disliking the head coach, and you don't have that problem.
