Separate names with a comma.

Bizarre. It's a radical scheme change, and Childress isn't necessarily a deft playcaller.
I like the sort of, outside the box thinking, but I just can't see it.
Rather take him than some dude that Sparano is buddies with. He was a failure as a head coach, but that offense shined at times with him.
I like that this is a bit outside the comfort zone of the "Sparano" offensive system. The west coast offense in Miami would be a first.
so we would go from a run heavy coryell based system to a run heavy west coast system? guess we're really opening it up
sad as it sounds him and chudzinski are the only two names so far that are even remotely competent. I will throw up if we hire Daboll or Garrett and Palmer is likely a bad choice too
I am not a Brett Favre lover, but didn't Favre say Childress had no clue about offense? Wasn't he a defensive coach in Philly? (*EDIT*: Seems like an offense cordinator in Philly but didn't call play*) Does he have some offensive guru background I am not aware, or am I confusing Childress with someone else? (EDIT: I was just wrong not confused :P)
EDIT: Link to hearsay about Favre Childress thingy-ma-bobber: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/rumors/...re-thinks-Childress-quot-has-n?urn=nfl-263551
Childress was the offensive coordinator and Jim Johnson was a the defensive coordinator until he died I believe 2 years ago.
According to wiki:
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, running backs/wide receivers coach (1978–1984)
Indianapolis Colts, quarterbacks coach (1985)
Northern Arizona University, offensive coordinator (1986–1989)
University of Utah, wide receivers coach (1990)
University of Wisconsin–Madison, running backs coach, offensive coordinator (1991–1998)
Philadelphia Eagles, quarterbacks coach, offensive coordinator (1999–2005)
Chilly was QB Coach and OC in Philly for several years. I think Reid called the plays though. I'd take Favre's opinion with a grain of salt.
Thank you gentleman :P
Well, what would make Childress interesting to me is there will be 2 Qb's on the market who run know his system, McNabb and Jackson but I suspect this is more or less a courtesy interview.
Count me 100% on board with this. Childress is another in the long list of bad head coaches, but outstanding coordinators. This would be a great hire, IMO.
http://forums.thephins.com/showthre...nator-The-Search-Begins&p=1342491#post1342491. Wanted him a while ago.
The article is from someone who suspects Favre thinks that. No one ever heard Favre say it. My guess is favre thinks he knows more about football then anyone he's ever played with or for.
Personally, with the talk about Rivera having Chud atop his list in Carolina I wish we'd offer him the job right now.
Looks like we'll drag our feet and lose out on him or even worse they'll see one of these other guys as a better option.
right now chud is at the top of my list with childress second and noone third.
I like the Childress option. I think he's got good experience and runs a good offensive system. Not a leader but a good offensive mind. I like his offense and I like Sparano and Ireland going outside the box of their own family (too much in breeding is never a good thing!).
Also in that article it mentioned Brian Daboll - perhaps as a QB coach.
Not a bad option either. He's worked with the evil genius and Tom Brady. Combining a guy like that with Childress - would be an interesting combo, I believe.
Would much rather go with Childress than Garrett, personally.
There is too much typecasting going on with Brad Childress. Truth is, he is an offensive mind, and offensive minds do not necessarily have "systems" per se.
As an Oklahoma State graduate, I came into this football season with Dana Holgerson as my OC. I thought to myself, yeah he is a genius but we have Kendall Hunter and he does not run the ball in his "system", rather he just throws quick screens to get him into open space.
Well, eleven wins later, Hunter is top ten in the nation in yards and second in the big twelve.
My point is, great offensive minds can change schemes to allow for personell. Childress got run happy because he had Peterson. Once Favre came on board he threw the ball a lot more.
I think he is a great fit for Miami. People forget - Mike Nolan was a failure as a HC as well, and look what he has done for us. All I'm saying is dont assume Childress cannot open the playbook up and throw the ball 50 times a game (if that is what Ross wants).
Right now, him and Garrett are the best two out there, in my opinion.
p.s. I'd be careful to call him a "failure" as a HC, as he took his team to the NFC Championship last year.
HA!!! Most of this board can't remember what happened 6 weeks ago, so good luck bringing up last year
He knows more about throwing interceptions than anyone he's ever played with or for. His opinion doesnt mean much to me anyway. Childress is interesting. As an O-CoOrdinator he would make some interesting changes and positive ones imo.
Childress was also the OC in Philly before going to Minn... which was extremely pass heavy.
When you have Adrian Peterson... you run the damn ball... lol
Another egotistical nut job just like Dan Henning........ no thanks
Favre said Childress doesnt know anything about offense... yet Favre had the best season of his career under him.
Favre was just mad b/c him and Childress clashed. Childress knows his offense...
What you say, and who are you?
Well if Farve thought Childress had complicated things to much there isn't a snowballs chance in hell Henne gets his system.
I'm fine with ego. However, ego along with incompetence (Henning) is not a good thing. lol
I actually think Childress would make a good fit.
I have a friend who is a die hard Vikes fan who despised Chilly. Said they had a lot of the same issues we did, things like running on third and long, lack of misdirection, and that most of the passing success last year came from Favre calling the shots downfield. His description makes me really hesitant to sign this guy unlike many others here. How much of the Eagles success was because of Reid and how much because of Chilly?
THough I am glad they are considering Childress (I liked his offense in Philly), I do think he seriously underutilized Adrian Peterson - especially this year. Just didn't make sense not to give the ball to your best player.
Two words...CAM CAMERON. Cameron was a failure as a HC in Miami, yet has created a solid offense with the Ravens as OC, an offense that crushed the Dolphins all 3 times they've played since he left Miami, and has gone deep into the playoffs 3 years in a row. For people to say Childress would suck as an OC because the Vikings sucked in 2010, doesn't make sense. And they were one Favre INT away from being in the Super Bowl in 2009, so I don't see him as a total failure as HC anyway, more disappointing. And when he was the OC with the Eagles, they went to the NFC Championship game 3 straight years, including the Super Bowl in 2004. He can obviously get stuff done.
I'd be fine with this, because you don't know what he'd bring to the table when he can just focus solely on offense, just like Cameron.
Chilly was pissed that Favre took so many chances. There were grumblings that even when Favre was tearing it up in 09', the two were at odds because Favre was doing whatever he wanted.
Based on that alone, no thanks. We already have a QB on the roster who ****s himself in the pocket because our former OC and QB coach patted him on the back for playing it safe.
It wasnt about taking chances. It was about making DUMB decisions. Favre made some flat out terrible decisions this year. Taking a chance by throwing the ball up to a WR in 1v1 coverage is fine. Throwing across his body off his back foot into triple coverage is DUMB.
I agree. I would much rather have him then any more friends from Dallas.
A courtesy interview ? You are kidding right ? Miami is on the verge of just about taking ANYONE that will have the job. Yes, its that bad. Childress can sit home for 2 years and collect 2.8 million each year, so no, this is NOT a courtesy interview by any means. Its a " Crap, nobody reputable wants the friggin job " interview.
Cleveland just hired Pat Shurmur as the new HC and you can expect the Rams to be hiring Josh McDaniels as soon as someone can find a pen to sign the contract. Watch how fast a crap team hires a good OC when he knows there is a legit QB already signed on the team with HUGE potential and upside.
Huge potential and upside is not related to Chad Henne or Tyler Thigpen
Watching Brad Childress offense's is like watching paint dry, or grass grow. Should be fun if he is hired. A lot of the team is fed up with the HC and his antics and the other half will pay to have the OC fed to the swamp animals. Childress and Sparano have the personality of a Sea Sponge, or a mop.
Seriously man, how do you come up with this stuff? lol
No please no!
my initial reaction is lets make this happen. but i think 1 or 2 years of success with childress as OC would have him out the door to be a head coach somewhere.
West Coast Offense! No thanks!
Yep courtesy interview.
Being the only true WCO in the AFC East would be fun to watch and a matchup nightmare for the other team
