Much was made of the notion that the Vikings would agree to extend the contract of Brad Childress during the bye week.
It didn’t happen.
Whether you are for rewarding Childress for improving this team every year or whether you thought he should be punished for some of the boneheaded things he does… the fact is he did not get the extension.
Whether or not Childress is back will probably depend greatly on his second half performance, including post season success. The carrot on a string approach will make Vikings fans feel better since they’ll know that Childress has more riding on the success of this football team than perhaps anyone else.
