Note: Sorry to push the Troy Smith-Nate Davis post down but this was definitely worthy of a front page post.
At any rate this was a long time coming with the way Minnesota started the season, past disagreements between Childress and Brett Favre, and the general "pussy-cat" nature of Childress.
Adam Schefter made the comment
"So I guess Brett Favre can now drive Brad Childress to the airport."
which is a hilarious burn.
Schefter also noted how the Green Bay Packers have become "Coach Killers" after Wade Phillips was fired following a demoralizing loss to the Packers a few weeks back...and now Childress is fired following a similar loss to Green Bay.
The next question may now be: Will the Yorks wait until the 49ers play the coach-killing Packers before making their own coaching fire? Of course, I joke...but another horrible loss at the hands of a team who's already cost two coaches their jobs...why not? Seems to be the new protocol for 2010.
