Vikings and Chiefs: Battle for the Toilet Bowl

Fans in Kansas City and Minneapolis will have to start attending the games with paper bags over their heads. Both clubs have been examples of extreme futility so far this fall. The two clubs are headed nowhere fast because throughout the history of the NFL, only three percent of teams that have started in this manner (0-3) have reached the playoffs.

Minnesota Vikings Disastrous Season due to Injuries…Or is it?

percy_harvin

Percy Harvin is experiencing migraine headaches; Offensive Guard Steve Hutchinson has a broken right thumb; Defensive End Ray Edwards is gimpy on a bum ankle. The aforementioned ailments are enough to send any Vikings fan running for Maalox, but Adrian Peterson also had a limited ability to make cuts due to his sprained ankle.

This is a recipe for disaster for a Minnesota Vikings team that entered Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills thirtieth in the NFL in points scored per game (17.2).

Much like the Detroit Lions, the Bills record is not indicative of their performance thus far in the season. The team would have won last weekend’s game against the Steelers, but receiver Steve Johnson dropped a sure touchdown because it was God’s fault. This accountability is refreshing in a league where receivers consistently make bad decisions and are in constant search of the spotlight.

Vikings Funeral? Minnesota’s 2010 Season Officially Lost at Sea

The Minnesota Vikings have come to a breaking point in their season. They were pummeled by their rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday. And Brett Favre wasn’t even listening to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell after his interception. It is well known that Favre and Brad Childress don’t see eye to eye despite the fact that the latter is the on-again off-again chauffeur. If Favre isn’t accepting coaching from the rest of the staff at this juncture, then it is time for one or the other to change.

Brad Childress: A Complete Laughing Stock

Given his lack of credibility and ineffectiveness in leadership, Vikings Coach Brad Childress should be in Washington; and not with the Redskins.

Chili came to a boiling point earlier this week when Percy Harvin exchanged words with the head coach regarding his sprained ankle. To say that this organization is not a NFL team and instead a soap opera would be a disservice to its level of dysfunction. Prior to his release, Randy Moss was more friendly with a man (Bill Belichick) who traded him for a third round pick than he was with his current leader.

Vikings’ Childress not Letting Brett Favre be Brett Favre

Brett Favre is not currently having the season that Viking fans or Brad Childress had anticipated. After reaching the NFC title game last year against the New Orleans Saints, the Vikings have struggled thus far- amassing a record of 2-5 through the first seven games. Only the Dallas Cowboys have been more disappointing to this point. The Vikings went into New England yesterday with a new lease on their proverbial lives.

They had the ace in the hole to their game plan. It came in the form of Randy Moss.

His perceived experience and knowledge of the Patriots offensive and defensive schemes certainly would be invaluable to the Vikings preparations throughout the week. Unfortunately, this plan did not come to fruition for Childress. Randy Moss was only able to achieve one catch on Sunday for a grand total of eight yards. This is largely due to Bill Belichick’s game plan to shut him down by having his safety positioned extremely deep downfield.
