Wow.... another midseason coaching change.

I wonder if the Vikes respond or if they keep on mailing it in? Also, I wonder if Frazier sits old Brint down.

It's not surprising. Now they just need to send Favre to the glue factory.

He had to do this, the team had quit on Chili, much like the Cow chips had quit on Wade. Our team hasn't quit on kubes, they just suck to the high heavens.

Exactly. In the free agency era, you have to realize that some of the players you like aren't going to be there forever. I'm cool with that.

And if regime change in the coaching ranks means some roster turnover - SO BE IT.

Andre, Matt and Arian ain't going anywhere, regardless of the coach. These are the only three I'm really worried about. Everyone else...it's been real, but...be gone.

Good post. Both coaches were hired in Jan 2006. Both have gotten 4.5 years so far. Childress has won his division twice, made the playoffs twice, the NFC Championship game, and still got the axe.

Kubiak has never won his division, never made the playoffs, or a Championship game, and still has a job.

Some owners demand results. Others demand profits.

No our team hasn't quit on Kubiak. They really like him and they like playing for him. I don't think our team would quit on him for any of the reasons many of the fans have. What I am afraid of is what are players are thinking about our defensive play right now. Are our offensive players pissed? I wonder what the defensive players are thinking of the calls and schemes?

My fear is not in what Kubiak has done to this point but maybe what he might not do. You know Schaub is pissed about the way we lost yesterday. Do the players want Bush canned? Should someone on the "D" get fired and somebody replaced? Would that be a step in the right direction, if only from a player/Kubiak standpoint. Would they get frustrated with Kubiak if we go on the rest of the season with everything as is?

I'm not normally a fan of Change for the sake of change. I'm not. But would changing up the D be benificial for our offense to know Kubiak is trying to do something about it and not just blindly going about business?

Chli just signed a contract extention last yr.

See Uncle BoB you can fire people during the season or even after the season lockout or no lockout.

Glad to see owners like Wilf. Guys that wont stand for mediocriyy.

Time to fire Bush and some of his kids now and Smithiak after the season.

Wilf set the precedent for you Uncle BoB.

You know the owners been wanting to do this ever since Chili cut Moss without touching bases with him, so he probably got some satisfaction
out of canning the HC.

Trent Dilfer said something interesting after Wade Phillips was fired. He said someone pulled him aside early in his career and warned him that everything players do is captured on film, and that they are all constantly under evaluation.

He said it made him realize that they have to give it their all, ALL the time, because new coaches could come in and evaluate people based on film.

It was very interesting insight and something I hadn't thought about before.

And he was one play away from the Super Bowl last year.

The message is clear IMO for this franchise's owner - don't mess with the bottom line. For disclosure's sake - I am complicit to the bottom line efforts.
