Skip to comments.Brad Childress, Brett Favre dispute has been festering for awhile
Posted on 12/23/2009 4:02:59 AM PST by big'ol_freeper
During the Minnesota Vikings' 10-1 start, coach Brad Childress and quarterback Brett Favre celebrated plenty of highs.
But their relationship hit a low Sunday night during and after a 26-7 loss to the Carolina Panthers. NBC cameras captured Childress and Favre having an animated discussion on the sideline in the third quarter, which the quarterback later said revolved around the coach's inclination to plug in backup Tarvaris Jackson.

Childress seems to love to use that phrase, "stream of consciousness." I think I'd throw up if I had a coach that kept saying that type of thing.
All is not well in Vikingland. We told you guys....
This is so delicious. I am a Green Bay fan and a Brett Favre fan. I have the best of both worlds now - I can root for the Packers and I can enjoy watching Brett Favre in action. I say “enjoy” now, because he is someone else’s problem. His whining and pouting and sulking behaviors are now someone else’s problem. I will be experiencing schadenfreude in the post season when Favre puts the Vikings’ staff and the fans through his annual retirement angst.
All Jackson did last year was prove that the Vikings could go a year without a quarterback. Farve just had to be serviceable and he would be better than Jackson. That being said, despite the team’s record, Childress is still one of the worst coaches in the NFL.
Jason Whitlock had a great column yesterday about it. Basically, he said to Favre, 'shut up and play'.
Here's my thing. If Favre wants to stay out there and get rolled over and over by Peppers, go for it! I enjoyed watching it immensely.
When Favre was with Green Bay he was never known as a prima donna and developed a reputation for being one of the greatest QBs of all time.
After Favre officially retired from Green Bay it has been one drama after another. Maybe Mike McCarthy deserves some credit for dealing with Bret and resolving their issues in private. Favre is still a great QB, but the Vikings are a very good team without him. They made the playoffs last year with a really terrible QB. It will be interesting to see if the Vikings have a late season collapse like the Jets did last year.
You’d better do little more research about Brett and Green Bay.
Personally, I am looking forward to another of this slobbering, blubbering retirement speeches. I think he is at his most articulate when giving these....
Yep. Yep. Of course, I’m looking forward to the pounding he’s going to take since their left tackle is a turn style.
Most of the problem now is that our O-line has mysteriously vanished. This same crew, save Loadholt, was the best in the NFL last year. The last four games they have been mediocre at best.
Favre is lucky, though, because it looks like he won't have to play in the cold in the playoffs.
Peterson’s not helping very much. 35 yards rushing last game?
No sympathy. Chilress wanted him, forced the rest of us t suffer another year of the prima donna, now he gets the headache that comes with him.
Love it. Keep it up, Brett, you bozo.
There’s no doubt they will draft a QB this in 2010.
The Vikings were the very last NFL World Champions, before the Contamination happened.
I'd like you to provide proof of that.
The Vikings never won a NFL championship before the Super Bowl era and have never won a Super Bowl. They may have won a NFL championship before the merger but they lost the Super Bowl to Kansas City that year.
A history of FAIL.
I went up to Green Bay a couple of weeks ago for the Ravens/Packers game. A waitress at one of the sports bar had a Brett Favre drama queen t-shirt on. I think she was right on the money.
This is my take. Brad Childress is an idiot. Pure and simple - an idiot. He considered benching Brett Favre in this game and several other games? Are you frickin’ kidding me? It is because of Brett Favre that we are having such a great season. He’s going to come try to tell a 19-year veteran QB that he can’t call an audible or make adjustments on the field because he sees something in the defense? This, coming from the same idiot coach that though Tavaris Jackson was the future of the team??? Tavaris Jackson???
I trust Brett Favre’s instincts and I trust him to lead the team. Maybe Childress should go to the O-line and launch into them with a profanity-laden tirade because it is THEIR fault that we’ve not been able to run the ball and that Brett has been getting pummeled every game.
The so called superbowls 1-4 were exhibition games. The AFL was not part of the NFL until the 1970 season.
Or you can google it yourself "1969 NFL Champions"
Twist the facts all you want - the Queenies have lost every Super Bowl game they played. 0 for 4. Says it all right there.
52 may be young but I don’t have dementia...
You are right the Viqueens were 1969 NFL Champions, but they were not World Champions, as you claimed, because they embarrassed the NFL by losing to the 1969 AFL Champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The first two Super Bowls were called the “AFL-NFL World Championship Game”. Strange designation for an exhibition I’d say. After the second “AFL-NFL World Championship Game” they changed the name to “Super Bowl”.
I can understand your confusion though, since the Viqueens played as if it were an exhibition game.
I’ll give you props though. Nice try at minimizing the failure of the Viqueens to secure the ultimate championship in any season.
You can Google that for yourself too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl
At least Brett Farve can retire without having to go through what Bart Starr had to endure his last years playing for Phil Bengston and a team that couldn't pay for an offensive line to keep him safe. How's Rodgers holding up? I predict another 2 years at the rate he's going before he's out for good. It's too bad, he's a good QB.
Yeah as a fan that’s all we care about is how much money our team makes. We could care less about championships. < /sarcasm>
After the Viqueens move to LA whatcha gonna do?
ALL NFL, MLB and NBA “players” are P*SSYS. If you want to see what a real man/player looks like look at these:
BOTH served thier country and went on to steller careers.
