Who kept calling Peterson's number when the running game wasn't working. WASN'T WORKING! Then you pass! Worked for the Packers, didn't it? If I could afford a quarter, I'd give it to Childress, or Sid, to buy a clue.

This coach is gifted by the talent that surrounds him which I'm sure is not all his accomplishment. Who in the football world would punt the ball on a 4th and one foot with 9 minutes and change to go in the 4th quarter? The Vikings were up by 14, the offense was driving, the defense was dominating, and this moron decides to punt. What message was he transmitting to an offense, which up to this point, had imposed its will and faltered only when it stalled? From this point forward the offense did not generate another first down and the PUCKERS were back in the game. This is not the demeanor of a playoff contender. Did you see Belichick back off yesterday when he needed to make a stance? Fire this idiot and send this axe kissing columnist to assist him!!!

With the personnel the Vikings have, there should be an investigation if they weren't 4-0. It sure looked like Chilly was trying to find a way to lose in the 4th quarter despite outstanding play from Allen, Favre and a host of others....yet Sid decides to write about the one dud on the team...the hapless coach.

Chilly gets no credit for Favre. Wilf was willing to pay and treated Favre right. Chilly does not look intelligent with that beard. Chilly can't find the red flaq when he needs to. Thanks Brett for another win, without the help of the coach.

contract extension??? OMG!!! its 4 games into the season with two creampuffs on the road and two decent teams at home. lets see what the record is after the second qtr of the season when they have played pittsburgh, baltimore, and then the pack at lame-bo. i mean lambeau.. if the vikes remain undefeated after that you can start thinkin about gettin the check book out.(MAYBE).... oh, and mr wilf. if you are gonna get the checkbook out keep writing those zero's for that stadium....GO VIKES!! p.s....for those of you slammin the 4th and inches call in the fourth. that was probably the best move you could make there. up two scores the game turns into a field position battle and you make the pack go 80+ yards as often as possible. no need to shorten the field and give them a chance for a quick score. dont get me wrong, i hate chilly as much as anyone. but, come on..just a little "football 101" for the uninformed...on that note....
