It’s Monday night football, week 16, in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings travel to Chicago to play in the Windy City. Will Brett Favre act as a coach or a quarterback in tonights game? My hope is that he acts as both! In my opinion I think it’s time for Brad Childress to take a back seat to the veteran quarterback. Favre knows this offense better than any player, and most coaches, in the game.
I believe the Vikings jumped the gun on Childress’ extension. I am a believer that our quarterback play has gotten us to where we are. I don’t believe we should reward a coach who has not proven himself in the playoffs. Tonights game will be a true test to how far Childress has excelled as a coach. Does he give the reigns to Brett Favre, a 19 year veteran, 3 time MVP, and Super Bowl champion, or does he take his normal conservative route and run the ball over and over? If the Vikings go conservative due to Childress’ lack of guts the Vikings will find themselves behind to a team they beat fairly easily just a few weeks back. While the Chicago Bears are out of the payoff hunt this has now become their biggest game of the season.
Tonight we find out who is running the Vikings; Favre or Childress.
