I was thinking so as well, but thinking about how bad they were before he got there...


If the Vikings would get rid of Childress anytime soon it would show why they have never had long standing success. He is just starting to put the pieces in. when he got there last year the players were still left over from Tice's reign due to the fact that it took so long for the Franchise to choose a new HC.

Since he has arrived he has given them a defense. Partly in thanks to Tomlin, but before they arrived the teams D was a joke. Now, it is very hard to run on the Vikings and the pass D is coming a long as well.

They had no offense. Moss had been traded and Culpepper didn't have a chance of sticking around.

Now, they have a young QB, Adrian Peterson, young receivers (They still need help here) a great line and Tony Richardson to go along with that run stuffing defense.

I just don't see how creating that going into this season puts Childress on the hot seat?
