The Vikings SHOULD have let Green go when the did.

And now to make myself cry  :'( I will point out that the Vikings could and should have had either Dungy or Tomlin as their coaches instead of Tice and Childress.  :'( :'( :'( :'(

If the Vikings need a coach maybe you guys will get Cowher? 

I have been wanting the Jets to go after him.

Cowher is the big fish... everyone will want him if he decides to come back.  He'll get his pick of the teams with vacancies. 

He's the only guy out there I'd consider dumping Gruden for.

I don't follow the logic of the Vikings needing him though - they're happy with Childress aren't they?

Not really...I think ownership is...but me and most of the fans think he is a moron.  His clock management, the most important thing he is in charge of is absolutely abyssmal.  He also frequently is outcoached during games.  The Vikes will often get off to a fast start only to get out adjusted coming out in the 2nd half.  I'm not expecting them to beat the Eagles...I am happy they won the North though

****** Bears.  If the defense would have stepped up we could have made the playoffs even with the Vikings win.

Congrats to all the Viking fans out there!  (I think that may just be you Scott unless we start hearing from bandwagon fans)  Childress is awfull - I honestly think the Purple would be in better shape if they had a terrible season and BC was let go for someone better.  That could still happen, but I think ownership would be reluctant to let him go after winning a division title, even if the division is as bad as ours.

I was a little worried about the Pack for a while there, but nice to see them beat up on Detroit.  I feel bad for the Lions, but also don't want my club being the only team to give them a win.

How about the Eagles pounding Dallas today?  Oh how the mighty have fallen...

So I hope for Favre's retirement speech tomorrow afternoon and Mangini's firing by 8AM  ;D

I am really happy for Chad, I really hope they do well in the playoffs.

There were a lot of fights today at the stadium, much more than usual. Chad got some good cheers before the game when they were out there practicing.

Of and it is very nice that the Patriots are not in the playoffs becuase the Jets lost.  :D

Yay Vikes. I'm not a bad wagon fan like JediJman apparently claims. You can like more than one team (I'm also a big Patriots fan). I still don't like Childress or Tavaris though.

Enjoy your 9th overall pick Jman. I would argue someone who cheers against their team is less a fan than a bandwagon"er".

Surely losing in the playoffs is less embarrassing than being given a win-and-you're-in shot at a division rival and being completely destroyed while everyone was watching.

Well, I can't speak for Dallas in this case, but being a Broncos fan, I'd agree with you.  :'(

Yeah, sucks for the Broncos, but after the Ed Hoculi thing, it's hard to not look at last night as everything being set right.

Yeah, on some level, you are right. I would have been OK (not happy, mind you) with a decent performance and a competitive game with SD winning rather than what took place last night.
