Brad Childress, according to the Minnesota Vikings, is out as head coach of the team. Leslie Frazier will replace him as interim head coach.

The move comes shortly after "Childress Watch" began -- and the day after the Vikings were pummeled by Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, a beating which resulted in owner Zygi Wilf avoiding the press and storming out of the locker room.

That's the same Wilf who, as recently as 10 days ago, said he wouldn't consider canning Chilly.

Childress has been on the hot seat for several weeks though (many believed he saved his job after a win against Arizona several weeks ago) and with this team more or less out of the playoff picture and holding a hot head coaching candidate in Frazier -- No. 1 on our recent list of names -- on the staff, it makes total sense to make a move here and see what Frazier can do with a team that looks uninspired and sloppy.

That lack of motivation and sloppiness is precisely why Childress was booted from his job -- players have been publicly rumbling (sometimes anonymously, sometimes publicly in the case of Brett Favre) that they don't believe in Childress as a leader and it's pretty clear that he lost the team. Which, it's been proven, isn't a great way to keep your job as a head coach in the NFL.

This also just proves that the Green Bay Packers are the ultimate coach killers, as they're the ones who knocked Wade Phillips out of Dallas too.

The next step is to sit down that bumbling fool of a QB The ultimate cheese head Brett Favre. He was instrumental in childresses downfall and has loyalty to no one but Brett Favre. Sit him and break his record NOW. It is time to look towards the future not flounder in the past. Favre is the past.

Many forget that Jackson although unseasoned had a wining record with the Vikes. Give him the ball, if nothing else he is more mobile than Favre. Don't forget Viking fans that he, (Favre) was instrumental in 6 of the 7 losses we now have. The Vikings should have waited for Vick, if they didn't have confidence in Jackson. I for one never wanted Favre. Green Bay should be adrmired for not putting up with his nonsense and letting him go. Now it is time for Mr. Wolf to demonstrate the same strength in character. Don't let Favre go unless there is a finacial gain for the organization, more over sit him on the bench and make him accountable for his poor play on the field and his antics off the field. As for the defense I don't think that Frassier is the answer to the teams problems he likewise should share in the failure of the team. His defense rates as one of the worst in the league, granted that is largely due to the postioning the offense puts them in and keeps them on the fieild fro to long, but they still have failed to make any big plays when needed. If we talk about inspiration Frassier is in charge of the defense that is his job to inspire his defense. As for Jared Allen has been invisable all season with spurts of life usually when they game was out of hand. He to may have to be delt to another team. It may be time to start rebuilding, this team is more than a few players away from a supper bowl.

What now?

I wonder what this will do to Brett Favre and whether or not this affects his decision to return or not next year.  Based on his health and play, he should (and probably will) retire, but how much of his decision to retire was based on a bad relationship with Childress?  On the other side of the coin, what is his relationship with Leslie Frazier and how much, if any, loyalty does Frazier have to Favre?  This should be interesting to watch.

TallWhiteNinja,  all that has to happen for Singletary to get fired is to lose to Arizona on Monday night after 3 picks by T. Smith and he will be gone.  Especially if they play as well as they did yesterday.

I like the last sentence of this article: The Packers are the ultimate coach killers! It brings back memories from a couple years ago when the Packers just obliterated the Giants at home and every thought Coughlin was gone, however he stayed in as coach and lead the Giants to a super bowl victory in the same year. The Cowboys look a lot better now, and I'd put my money on the Vikings getting better as well!
