This was the guy who finished second to Saban last year if we did a broad coaching search. He's very smart, young, and capable. Give me a break Philly has a very capable offense with their RBs healthy. Yes they have lit up the NFL before...

The good news, I'm sorry, the GREAT news is that Childress' affinity for the WCO - along with his rep of making Donovan McNabb into a 'star' - means that the probability of Minnesota keeping their crappy starting QB, Daunte Culpepper, to themselves just went way up.

Yehaw, indeed.

Daunte and Donovan both scramble, but common they're not the same type of QB. One is great at bombing it deep, the other at moving around and hitting a TE in the endzone.

I am not surprised at all, I knew that it was going to either be Childress or Martz.

Dont kid yourself, Brad Childress is one of the best out there. Andy Reid has pressured him to pass far too much over the past season, thats why the Eagles offense struggled. But i have a feeling he will do a very good job with that team in Minnesota, you'll see.

I started a thread on this but it has not got much response do you think TO can end up in Minny because he knows Childress? It can be a possibility!

Not after he told Childress to never speak to him(TO) unless spoken to first. Won't happen.

Childress has actually deserved a HC job for 3 years now dude. Several teams just aren't patient enough to wait for playoff cordinators to get eliminated.

Cheap would've been hiring Martz,Sherman, or any other coach that just got fired.

Last I had heard St. Louis and the Texans were the ones interested in Scott, not Minnesota.

My money is on Ron Rivera for the Rams job and either Kubiak or Ferentz for the Texans job. The one I am concerned about is the Raiders.

Al Davis loves the veritcal passing game, Randy Moss knows Linehan and Linehan fits the profile for an "Al Davis" type of coach. You know, the young offensive assistant who "should" cave to Davis's every need.

I know Raider fans were ready for Sean Payton to be their coahc a few years back, and some have expressed interest in Rob Ryan, who may get the gig. However, looking at it objectively, Linehan makes the most sense.

I am not worried though, until I see something with actual proff saying that Linehan has moved on, I will assume he is here.

Safe prediction: I will be betting against the Vikings plenty, and successfully. Childress is another one of those geniuses who thinks he can reinvent the sport, and a wimpy swing pass is the same impact as drive blocking for a running play. Nice hire.

I think Childress is an overrated head coaching prospect. He is a good assistant, but without McNabb, look what Philly's offense has looked like. And he gets more credit than he deserves since Andy Reid has a huge input on the offensive side of the ball. I am so glad Wayne Huizenga passed him over in favor of Coach Saban.

Scott Linehan has had our offense humming at times this year with Frerotte and Rosenfels at QB. I for one really hope Coach Linehan stays with the Dolphins and can help develop the young QB we pick up this offseason.
