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.
