Zygi Wilf says he won't fire Brad Childress

Despite the fact that the Vikings got embarrassed against Chicago (they lost a critical division game 27-13) on Sunday, Brad Childress isn't going to get fired.

The Bears shut down Adrian Peterson, Brett Favre threw three picks, and Devin Hester crushed the Vikes in all aspects of the game and, yet, Minnesota owner Zygi Wilf told ESPN's Ed Werder following the game that he is not considering firing Vikings coach Brad Childress.

Although perhaps taking a peak at the "new-look" Dallas Cowboys will change his mind -- if Jason Garrett can engineer a turnaround of a talented, underperforming team in Big D, Wilf would be foolish not to at least give Leslie Frazier the same sort of opportunity in Minnesota.

I'm afraid I have to agree with the mob here.  I am a Brett Favre fan and I have to say it is time to take a much needed rest.  The farm sounds like a good place to heal and regroup his life towards retirement.  I love to watch him when he shines but it is not fair to the team when he can't perform up to the expectation level they need.  Travaris Jackson is ready and able.  PS - CHILLY must GO!!!!!!!!

GET RID OF BRAD CHILDRESS!!! AND BRETT FARVE!!! Those two idiots need to go out to pasture. Childress does not know how to coach. The players hate him. The fans hate him. He's too stupid to coach a football team. FIRE THAT S.O.B.  And take Farve with him, too!!!

Doesn't Wilf owe Chilly like $16 million?   I would think that is a pretty good reason to keep him around a little.   The irony of it all: Favre is said to be the main reason Chilly just got his extension last yr.

I'm a lifelong bear fan and I have to say Minnesota lost that game more than the Bears won it. 
The Bears are not a good team. They've been unbelievably fortunate and it's better to be lucky than good. They have a very strong run defense and when they put teams in 3rd and long and get pressure they've been opportunistic. The special teams seem to come up in big moments and disappear at others. 
The offense is pathetic. 
I'm sorry but Detroit won that 1st game - that was a ridiculous call. Dallas lost on 2 deflected passes. The Giants sacked Bear QB's 10 times. Take away the Carolina game and Matt Forte is averaging 2.9 ypc. 
If the season ended today the Bears would have played 1 playoff team. 
And let's face it the Turf in Chicago is providing a huge home field advantage ( That's smart ). 
And next week the Bears get a QB free Miami team. IT REALLY IS BETTER TO BE LUCKY THAN GOOD. 
But I've seen this same game before - along time ago when Ted Marchibroda was coaching the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens had a team with a ton of talent but they had decided to get Marchibroda fired by losing to lowly chicago. No, no Raven said it but, just like the Vikings yesterday the Ravens sat laughing and joking while James Allen became the first back in years to go over 100 yards against them. 
Yesterday - the Vikings looked like a team that simply did not care if they won. WR's short arming passes and cutting routes short. Nothing crisp in the cuts but that may have been the turf. O-lineman, not finishing blocks and in some cases just being out of position (there is no way you ask Shiancoe to go man up on Peppers that often). 
Two players played like they wanted it for minnesota (Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart) - a lot more than that played like they wanted it for Chicago. When that happens the team with more players playing to win will win. 
I don't know if Childress is a bad coach - but he's completely lost this team - like Marchibroda did, like Wade Phillips did, and he needs to go. 
I don't love Lovie Smith - I think his clock management stinks, I think his offense is less than creative, and left to his own devices his defense would be getting run over (the Big Ends with Peppers and Idonije are doing a great job keeping things clear for the linebackers and clogging passing lanes)...BUT LOVIE definitely hasn't lost his team. He may not be a coach but at some point being a leader is more important. 
Go Bears. 
Zygi - you gotta can Brad.

Rex started all 16 games that year (23 tds 20int) but that team was definitely all about defense.
