Why Chidress needs to go.

As I'm sure many of you know, Minnesota Vikings fans hate Brad Childress. Some would pose the question: Why? Its only the third year in the west coast offense and your team is tied atop the division at .500. This is true, but it doesn't justify that Childress broght this terrible offense (at least his version, and just an fyi: I hate the west coast offense and am more of a fan of the old Vikings system), did a horrible job integrating the offense, and has done nothing to help the defense except for hiring Tomlin and Frazier. Let me expand on this.

-The offense. Well the offense is terrible! Maybe it is because us in Minnesota were spoiled with the pass happy teams of the late nineties into two thousands, but this dink and dunk stuff is terrible! It seems that Childress had his manhood taken from him by his wife and has zero guts to attack the defense. When there is time left at the end of the half, he packs it in. I thought you were supposed to give 100% for sixty minutes? He is crap and we should hire Billick to revitalize the offense like he did with teams of the past.

-Integrating the offense. It seems to me that he is too stubborn to modify the offense for the personel he has in there. We don't have flashy recievers who are going to make you miss a bunch. We have solid possession recievers and Berrian. We need to work with that by utilizing the slant, the drag, and the out route/comeback, especially with Berrian. Plus, we need a QB!!! Whether it be giving T-Jack another shot or drafting one high (*hint*Graham Harrell*hint*), cause what we have just isn't working. If we don't have AP, we are easily 3-7, if not 2-8.

-No help w/defense. No explanation necessary. He sucks.

These are just my opinions. I would love to hear yours about this cause its an interesting subject.

Best NFL QB Prospect in Nation

In reality, its not easy to pick a qb in the draft to be great at the next level. For every Peyton Manning, there is a Ryan Leaf, but for every Spergeon Wynn, there is a Tom Brady. Yes, its true, Wynn, from lowly Texas State, was drafted before Brady. Wynn had one TD and seven INT's over ten games played. Finding a gem is really hard with QB's. The criteria that I find most effective in finding a good NFL QB are the following:

-Has an accurate arm-lets put it this way: if they aren't accurate against college defenses, they are screwed against pro defenses. Its basically, you are accurate or you aren't.

 -Can make all the throws-you don't need to be able to throw it a mile, or gun it like Brett Favre, but you do need to be able to throw the long out route to the opposite side of the field.

-Knows how to win/has a winning attitude:this is the most important quality by far! If you don't know how to win, then you carry that with you. This is why some teams fizzle out towards the end of the season. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you don't know how to win, that doesn't matter.

By taking all of this into consideration, my best qb prospect is none other than Texas Tech's QB Graham Harrell. He has the best arm in college football, in my opinion, obviously. He isn't like the predecessing qb's at Texas Tech. He has pro potential. He can make every throw, find open guys, and even thread the ball when neccessary, like on the gamewinning touchdown to Michael Crabtree at the end of the Texas game. Plus, he knows how to win. He hasn't had a losing season since entering college. He has won games against top opponents (#1 Texas, #2 Oklahoma to name 2), and has only gotten better over his three years as a starter. I may be totally wrong here, but this is only one mans opinion. He would be an excellent fit for the Vikings. I would love to hear some feedback out there from all of the fans out there and hear their views, becuase this is a tough question to answer. There are many QB's that could be worthy of this honor, such as Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, Zac Robinson (and thats just the Big 12 South), Matthew Stafford, Tim Tebow, and even the two Chases at Mizzou (Daniel and Patton). I look forward to hearing everyones opinion.
Have a great day!
