The Vikings have fired Brad Childress, who apparently had nothing to do with last year’s one-play-away-from-the-Super-Bowl and everything to do with this year’s 3-and-7 record, judging by the sports talk shows.
What now? Leslie Frazier and owner Zygi Wilf will meet the media at 3 p.m., so presumably Frazier will take over as coach. But will it be coach or interim coach?
Frazier has his own drama going on. He’s African American and the NFL has a rule that requires teams to interview African Americans whenever there’s a coaching vacancy. So, with few exceptions, Frazier has gotten several interviews, shortly before NFL teams have hired a white head coach. Should this be his big chance or do you want someone with a bigger name?
And what about Mr. Favre? Do you let him start any more games, or suggest Mississippi is a nice place to spend December?
The comments section is open for your review.
Meanwhile, I’m choosing to remember the good times.
