Chilly is a good coach.

Recommended Posts

Many times I felt like I was the only fan standing behind him. Am I still the only one?

He is a good coach and doing fine with the QB(s) he has. He deserves to stay with the team.

Is he great or fantastic? Maybe not. But he was the best choice at the time and the best choice for us now.

With so many coaches being fired this year, he will be are best choice for next year too.

Keep up the good work Chilly!

A good coach? NO! Although I was never on the fire Childress crew, he is an ok coach. No one can argue that he has made some real stupid calls!

Name a coach that hasn't made stupid calls?

I have seen a lot more stupid calls and decisions made by other coaches this year...and for winning teams too.

Chilly is in a race in a car with a great engine, but one flat tire (no QB). And, he is still in the heat of the race.

I think he has grown and learned a lot. He is definitely a better coach that he was at the beginning of the year. I don't know if he is a good coach yet but I haven't cussed at him through my TV lately.

I think the team chemistry is finally catching up to its talent level. Whether or not you attribute that to Chilly's coaching is up to you.

Me... I think he's just like his favorite project qb Tjack. As long each can manage the game without making any stupid mistakes, the team will keep winning. Neither one of them will be Pro-Bowlers any time soon.

I hope they both continue to do a good job of managing their positions, cuz the bottom line is ... THE VIKES ARE WINNING, AND LOOK GOOD DOING IT.

Don't forget that a lot of MN thought trading up to get T-Jack was a no-brainer and a great decision (at the time).

Just like getting AP was....

If I am remembering right, we were only beat by a lot of points once this year.

I think the team has grown a lot...so Chilly can now open the offense a little more. Our Special Teams and even our Offense Line still need more work though...and we pay our offense line a lot!

But, what will we do in the playoffs? Hard to tell. But, we are beating some good teams lately.

If we continue to play at this level, we will be a tough opponent for anybody in the playoffs.

However, as we all know, that's a pretty big 'if'.

With the way they were flying around the field yesterday on defense I could see them being a tough team to face in the playoffs.

He's OK as a coach. Again, everything went right yesterday and you played with a lead the whole time. Had a couple of bounces go our way. He does OK, but he also has really bad games at times as well.

He's ok, but certainly not great. You have to remember that we ran the ball at will which took a lot of pressure off of T-Jack. I still see some really stupid penalties in the game. Ryan Cook and ? Duggan need to get their *$$& together!

This time of year those can really hurt. I'm thinking a well coached team shouldn't be making those mistakes at this point in the season. We'll see what happens when the game is tight and T-Jack has to make the big plays. I'm hoping he can.

Go Vikes !! ole

I think Chilly is improving as a coach. It appears that he is starting to learn to make better improvements and changes at halftime. Not completely sold on him yet, but am stating to lean more toward hoping he stays around for another year. will have to see how the last couple of weeks play out. There is definitely improvement there though.

Chilly is the Best COACH in the NFL! No doubt!

T-Jack had "another" terrible Game, Get rid of him!

His QB rating was only 134 for this game Only 4 stinkin TD's!

chilly is improving thats for sure.

only one really terrible play call yesterday. (the pass on 1st down, up 21 in the red zone to chester taylor that he fumbled) we should have at that point been attacking the ground especially at that point on the field.

its been night and day difference though overall, he's finally apearing confident and the team sees it and is responding

How can it be a terrible play call? The play worked, Chester just needs to hold onto the ball.

I was glad to see a "take no prisioner" mentality. Early this year he coached the game in order not to lose. Now he is coaching to win and to stomp on the opponent when they are down.

If you want to win in the NFL you need to kick the guy when their down, and I think we kicked Arizona about 3 times while they were down.

How defeated did the cardinals look when they had us pinned at 2nd and 20 and then AP runs for 30. Now that has to hurt morale.

Wouldn't Chester have an equal chance to fumble even if we ran the ball? The problem was the fumble not the play call.

?? the play call made zero sense. you are up 21 against a team that has the best 1-2 punch of receivers in the NFL. its first and ten in the red zone. the more time runs off the clock the better. if you have a great run game, you wear em out and keep the high powered passing attack off the field. it may have worked minus the fumble but its definitely not the correct football move in that situation.

its basic football knowledge.

Mediocre at best! The team we beat yesterday was a mediocre team in a terrible division. We could have 6 extra wins playing those teams as well. The teams we have beat lately Green Bay, Chicago, Detroit and Jacksonville they are bad teams and Chicago is ok at best and don't tell me GB is ok because they stink right now. We are definitely one and done in the playoffs still.

I said the same thing when they passed the ball, but they do need to mix up the plays to make the run work!

i totally agree, but in that situation if he's gonna fumble it should have been on a run (if that makes sense) I'm all about mixing in the pass, but thats just not when you do it.

you realize that if fat pas is healthy we match up favorably with almost everyone in the NFC playoff picture?

We ran the ball 72.1% of the plays. I think Arizona showed what happens when you are very one dimensional. That is also basic football knowledge.

It was a safe, short pass that had very little chance of turning over and does not become a turnover if Chester hangs on to the ball. Just like a running play. If it was 15 yard out pattern I would say you are right on the money. It was a screen pass that worked because Arizona was playing aggressive against the run you wanted.

The Vikings need a great coach. Something they have never had. Chilly is alright but not a playoff caliber type coach. Bud Grant was a playoff caliber type coach. Again not a great coach. Great coaches win Superbowls.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
