Zygi Wilf Waited To Release Randy Moss Because He Was Thinking About Firing Brad Childress

Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf didn’t release Randy Moss on Monday because he was contemplating firing Brad Childress instead according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.

I can’t be the only that is intrigued at how random the Minnesota Vikings’ loyalties are, specifically to Childress, Tarvaris Jackson and most former Philadelphia Eagles.

Still, it doesn’t seem like Childress should be completely secure in his job status.

Wilf, who lives in New Jersey, spent much of the past week observing practices and meeting individually with Vikings players. One of the players who participated in such a meeting told ESPN he sensed Wilf was attempting to determine how much support remained for Childress among veteran players and wanted to remind them they could still make the playoffs.

Fans also aren’t going to surprise Childress if (when?) he’s booed this weekend.

Childress admitted he expects a negative reception from the Minnesota crowd on Sunday.

“I’m not crazy enough to think there wont be catcalls,” he said. “That’s part of the deal, that happens every time I walk on or off of a field. It’s always interesting to hear what people have to say. That’s part of the audience participation thing.”

As bad as this season has gone thus far, Childress should probably just be happy there’s still an audience participating.
