Favre has to go


It's probably not popular to say, but I am not a huge fan of the Childress firing. Then again, when your players decide they aren't going to play for you anymore - like on Sunday - there really isn't much choice.

But it wasn't Childress who threw 17 interceptions this season, it was Favre.

It wasn't Childress playing half ass on the D line, that was Jared Allen.

And on, and on.

Childress brought the Vikings from 6-10 to the NFC championship game in three years. He brought in a ton of great talent, from AP to Percy Harvin, Hutch, Jared Allen, the Williamses, and more. He turned the Love Boat into a respectable franchise. Sure he's made mistakes, but nothing that deserves firing.

C'est la vie. What's done is done.

What's really disappointing is Frazier's announcement today that Favre is his guy. This season's over, it's time to start working on next season. We need to know what we have so we know what we need. Favre ain't it. He's over the hill, done, out of gas, with barely enough left in his arm to hold his phone/camera for a close up of his johnson.

It's time to sit him down. If Childress has to lose his job, its only fair that the player most responsible for the disaster this season be put on the bench or forced into retirement.

I had hoped Frazier would get off to a better start; have something to offer than more of the same.

Again: sigh.
