Favre's At Fault
But Why Is Childress Off the Hook?
I'll be very clear...Brett Favre is ultimately at fault for the Vikes for three cardinal sins of QB play:
1. Don't throw across your body on the run.
2. Don't throw late over the middle.
3. Run for better field goal position when nothing's open.
It all resulted in the third time Favre had a great shot at the Super Bowl, and his last pass of the year was a pick (the 2007 NFC Championship game against the Giants and the 2003 divisional playoff against the Eagles the other two times.)
But why isn't there more questions directed at Brad Childress as the second person at fault in all this?
How can you have 12 men in the huddle, after a timeout? The penalty put the Vikes out of field goal range. This after the Vikes had two straight runs, refusing to grab the game by the throat. During crunch time, this guy doesn't grab the opponent by the throat. He has tunnel vision and doesn't see the forest for the trees. We've seen this act before as the Badgers Offensive Coordinator. And Packers fans should be happy ol' Chili never came to GB, got a contract extension, and will be on the opposite sideline for years to come.
