Randy Moss Trade 'Was A Poor Decision', Childress Says

The Randy Moss situation has all but come to an end in Minnesota, but Vikings head coach Brad Childress says that it was a poor decision to even trade for Moss in the first place.

“It was a poor decision,” Childress said during a press conference today. “I’ve got to stand up and I have to make it right. When it’s not right, you need to make it right.”

Childress also used some big words when explaining why it wasn’t a good decision.

“I wished and hoped that it would have worked out as well,” Childress said. “But it was a programmatic non-fit, and it didn’t work out. When things don’t work out, you need to move quickly to take steps.”

Interestingly enough, Childress was also asked if his job might also be on the line.

The poor start and the abrupt dismissal of a player the team spent a third-round draft pick to acquire from the Patriots has Childress being confronted with questions about his job security.

“I’d say that’s up to everybody else to look at,” Childress said. “I know that basically it’s usually tied to how many wins you have and how many losses you have.”

The Vikings currently have two wins and five losses, so take that for what it is worth.
