Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress made the hugest mistake of his career by cutting wide receiver Randy Moss without consulting anyone within the front office of the organization.
For it everything that has happened and will happen is what he deserves.
On Wednesday when Childress had to meet with the local media, he was called out for lying to the media right after their Sunday loss to the New England Patriots. By the time he got through with it you can bet that Childress wished he had never done it.
Now, it is being reported by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Childress and wide receiver Percy Harvin got into a heated argument on Friday at practice. Ripping apart and undressing one of your best players in front of the rest of his teammates for resting his ankle a few days and then taking it easy in practice is just a dumb thing to do.
That right there makes me wonder who is smarter him or Gomer Pyle.
Half of his team is already mad, like Harvin, over the sudden waiving of Moss and now the only thing that Childress has done is infuriate them more. That has now wedge a permanent divide between those who support him and those who don’t
Also, ESPN, via Pro Football Talk, reported Friday that Vikings owner Zygi Wilf weighed firing him. That means Wilf and Childress had a very pleasant conversation that most likely made it clear that if he ever did something like that again he would be immediately fired for violating his contract.
In the end, the only way Childress can save his job is a trip to the Superbow.
