    It is getting ugly in a hurry for our neighbors to the West.. I won't be surprised to see a major overhaul in the coaching and front office operations for this team, even though they had a decent draft this year and may need a few years to rebuild the talent level on this team.

    Chilly however is probably toast, maybe even before the year is over.. Frazier anyone?

    GREEN BAY, WIS. - Losses happen. The Vikings could have brought brilliant schemes and bellyfuls of passion to Lambeau Field and still fallen to the great Brett Favre and the surging Packers.
    We'll never know. All we can be certain of is this: On any given Sunday, our Vikings can coach like dunces and play like dogs.

    Their 34-0 loss was football Armageddon, an embarrassment that cast a spotlight on every important decision this regime has made and should call into question the future of all their decision-makers.

    Never in their history had the Vikings lost by this much to Green Bay, or been shut out by the Packers, who halted the Vikings' NFL-record run of 260 consecutive regular-season games with a point.

    This was the Vikings' worst result since 41-donut at the Meadowlands, their worst regular-season loss since 1984, their worst regular-season shutout loss ever, their worst passing performance since Spergon Wynn, their worst run defense since last year's mail-it-in finale, and, for a few players, their worst attempt to pretend they care.

    In the fourth quarter, you could see Vikings safety Dwight Smith and injured cornerback Antoine Winfield chuckling on the bench -- Smith finding one comment so funny that he ran away from Winfield, laughing hysterically.

    Smith later explained that this is his "job," and that you need to be able to smile during a bad day. He and fellow veteran safety Darren Sharper also called the result "embarrassing," which is closer to the truth.

    You don't get to 34-donut by having a bad day, or a bad week. You get to 34-donut by making big mistakes on big decisions over a matter of years.

    Less than two years ago, the Vikings hired Brad Childress rather than give the rival Packers a shot at him. Today, Childress is 0-4 against the Pack -- giving Green Bay its first consecutive season sweeps of the Vikings since 1987-88.

    Overall, Childress is 9-16 (and 5-14 in his past 19 games) while Packers coach Mike McCarthy, a man the Vikings didn't interview, is 16-9 (and 12-1 in his past 13 games).

    While the Packers have built their team around a future Hall of Fame quarterback and an offense built around his skills, the Vikings have neglected the position, starting Brad Johnson last year, blaming their offensive woes on him, and subsequently starting three players -- Tarvaris Jackson, Kelly Holcomb and Brooks Bollinger -- who aren't as capable as Johnson.

    Sunday, Bollinger had 7 passing yards until about two minutes remained in the third quarter while operating Childress' self-titled "kick-*** offense."

    In the second round of the 2006 draft, the Vikings, choosing one pick before the Packers, took New Mexico center Ryan Cook, now their starting right tackle. The Packers then chose Greg Jennings, the kind of explosive receiver the Vikings crave. Jennings caught four passes for 63 yards on Sunday. He is averaging 19.1 yards per catch this season and has six touchdowns, twice as many as all Vikings wideouts combined.

    After the game, Childress was subdued, saying with a gravelly voice: "If my team wasn't ready and I didn't have them ready, then I'm going to take responsibility for that. That's my fault, that we didn't play good today."

    As if the historic loss wasn't enough, Adrian Peterson, the best reason to watch the Purple, sprained his knee in the third quarter. While his franchise player writhed, Childress stood on the sideline consulting his beloved play chart for a matter of minutes before meandering toward Peterson.

    On the heels of the Lambeau Lapse and Peterson's sprain, the Vikings this week are likely to have their first home television blackout since 1997.

    Just a few years ago, Vikings blackouts were inconceivable. As we learned Sunday, the new regime has a knack for making history.

    I do not always agree with Jim Souhan however, I find difficulty in finding flaws in his article.

    Note: I will be posting in Black for a suitable mourning period

    None of you need feel sory for the Vikings...everything happens for a reason. A loss like this against a team we could compete with just ensured his termination.

    Ziggy retains him into next year. I seriously don't think you make a change unless someone like Cowher agrees to take the job.

    The team is in disarray and it will take a veteran coach to reel it back in and something tells me that the triangle of whatever they call it, will give Chilly another season to bring it around. Add to it the 5 year deal that they fronted Chilly, Ziggy won't give 3 years of the contract away.
