It’s always interesting when sources talk to Yahoo! Sports. Especially when those sources talk about a coach. Yahoo! Sports has given us the Tom Cable punching Randy Hanson story, the Jimmy Raye can’t call plays story and the Childress Favre drama stories.
Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports has another installment in the Childress Favre drama genre. Take a look at what he wrote Wednesday:
Locker-room sources say the frost between Childress and Favre is palpable right now, a bad situation obviously exacerbated by the Vikings’ disappointing 1-2 start. The surprising trade that brings (Randy) Moss back to Minneapolis, on the heels of a failed attempt to land disgruntled San Diego Chargers wideout Vincent Jackson, is a last-ditch effort to salvage an increasingly volatile situation – one which could take down virtually all of the leading figures if things break the wrong way.
An anonymous Viking player told Silver, “I think it’s all or nothing. It’s either the missing piece and we go all the way, or Moss takes on Chilly and this thing blows up by the end of October. There’s no C grade on this one. It’ll either be an A or an F.”
That’s been the mantra for the entire season (all or nothing is implied when you talk a 40-year-old quarterback out of retirement). No matter what happens, it will make for compelling viewing.
