Reflecting the Vikings' steady rise, his new contract extension also might bode well for keeping his staff intact.

Thank you Sid for coming up with this piece of information. I came to this country from Vietnam in 1975 as a young boy and our family settled in Zumbrota, Minnesota. I was a childhood friend of Casey and his older brother Kelly. We would spend countless hours playing sports especially football. We were all big Vikings fans even though the sport of football was new to me. Ironically, Casey would have to come up with schemes to stop the Vikings' explosive offense. It will be a bitter-sweet weekend for me as to whom I should cheer for. Maybe a competive game with the Vikes coming out on top of course.

Now today you said ask Bud Grant and I've been saying for two years now to hire the former gopher to either coach the U of M football or the vikings and why didnt maturi sign Marc when he had the chance?

Can't argue with success, he has certainly earned it.

Childress had one shot to be an NFL coach in this league & he made the most of it. Vikes are on pace to win consecutive division titles for the first time in 31 years. He also brought in Brett Favre with a last ditch phone call at the end of training camp. No doubt this year's weak schedule helped & Childress inherited some talent. He's had a lot of power over personnel decisions and has proven to be an astute judge of talent and brought in players with character.

The Vikings are winning DESPITE Childress, not because of Childress. They are winning because they actually have an NFL calibur quarterback. BUT Childress still insists on have a high school QB(T-Jack) has his #2. When is he going to wake up and realize that Rosenfels belongs ahead of Jackson on the depth chart? It's a waste of talent(and money) for Rosenfels to be third string!!

Every time I hire people I look for someone who can make me look like a rock star. That's what Brett has done for Chilly.
