    Now the Vikings can bench Brett too so we can start building for next year....

    How to start an argument online:
    1) Express an opinion
    2) Wait

    Yes, it is time to sit down Brett. The back up can not do any worse.

    We all know Lovie Smith is on thin ice this year. Of course they already beat the Packers once this year. Chicago plays green bay the last week of the season. There is an excellent chance that Lovie gets fired after a loss to the Packers as well if Chicago misses the playoffs.

    I suppose this fiasco of a season makes Ziggies quest for a new stadium just a teeny bit more challenging?

    I guess if the North Stars can move to Texas, the Vikings can move to LA.
    I think LA is just dying for another pro sports team anyway.

    The most likely move in the NFL is going to be the Toronto Bills. They already play 1 "home" game in Toronto every season You know your team is bad when you start the season 0-8 and there is no talks about axing the coach. I thought it was automatic to fire the coach in that situation. Of course what quality coach would want to take over that job??

    Without the Bills the next closest NFL team (to Rochester) is the Browns. Pretty much an equivalent team to the Bills (lovable losers, not much fan base that isn't local). I guess Toronto is a hair closer than Cleveland but I'd rather drive to Ohio. I have family in Canton where the football hall of fame is.

    Ironically I visit Canton every year and have never been to the football hall of fame

    There was a good point made on the radio the other day. " What About the players that just are not trying"....

    We all know that Chili had to go but, is it time for a full house cleaning??

    Sunday it looked like a bunch of players that just didnt want to try. I think a good shake up in the house of the Vikings would do them some good. Send a few people down the road that dont want to work and send a message.

    Given that I cheer for the Pack I relish in there demise but, I would rather see the Vikings Stay in Minnesota than leave. We wouldn't pla..Kick their butts as much if they moved to LA. The rivalry is great and the hatered is even better. Lets keep that going.

    I agree. I bet there will be a bunch of players that feel they better "fly right" or they may be the next to go.

    ps. Don't forget who kicked who's butt twice last year...

    I wish!!!!! I believe it will take more than that to get rid of him though.

    He must have a flash drive with some pics on it hidden somewhere...he is not worried at all.

    Look what happened to the Orioles this year. They were pathetic, well on their way to setting the worst record ever. Fired their manager, had an interim, then hired Buck Showalter and all of a sudden they played better than any team in baseball at the end of the season.

    As for the Los Angelos Vikings, Gawd, I hope not!!

    And finally as much as I've enjoyed watching Favre play over the years it's time for him to go!
    Often Wrong,

    It seems the Vi-Queens have always had a knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    The Gophers got their stadium and the Twins got their stadium (sure did a lot of good in the post season) The Vikings are the biggest sport revenue in this state. I bet they get their stadium. I am hoping the Vikings played dead to get rid of Childress. Look at Dallas. This will be the first Thanksgiving that might have a good football game. Wilkes should have dumped Childress after the Arizona game. If they were playing dead at least the season would still be viable. Now it is too late. As mentioned before TJ is not the future. Why not toss Webb out there and give him a chance. I remember when Daunte started he was scared and he did terrible but the next year the only other QB that threw for more yardage (Moss and Carter probably had a lot to do with that)was Peyton Manning. Leslie Frasier already said Favre will still be the starting QB.
