Childress fired

Brad Childress is gone. Vikings fans are probably rejoicing right about now at the news that Brad Childress has been fired as the Head Coach of the Minnesota Vikings. In the meantime Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazier has been named interim Head Coach. As far as I'm aware, Jay Glazer of FOX sports was the first to break the news. So, what can Vikings fans expect now? Who knows. Hopefully two things will happen to make an immediate shake up; 1) Favre will be dumped and 2) Tavaris Jackson will be given a shot as the starting QB for the rest of the season, allowing the Vikings to assess whether they really want to stick with Jackson who has failed to cement himself as a consistent, quality quarterback. Something had to be done though. The Vikings have been horrible at times. They'll be hoping the winds of change can fix blow away some of the negativity in the locker room and help to unify the team. Now is Frazier the long term answer? I'm not sure. Don't forget that the Vikings defense hasn't exactly played it's part this season. Either way this will be a good audition for Frazier, who many believed was in the running to get a permanent HC shot somewhere else if the Vikings stuck with 'Chilly'. So, there we are. I'll be back either later today, maybe tomorrow to round up the weekends action. Till then, Have a great day everyone. (Just quickly, a little song in honor of Brad "Chilly" Childress)
