Did Childress waive Moss without first talking to Vikings?

Brad Childress must be confused because apparently he thinks he’s Bill Belichick and has the authority to make big boy decisions without first consulting his bosses.

According to NFL.com’s Jason LaCanfora, Childress informed Vikings players in a meeting on Monday that Randy Moss would be waived but apparently some within the Minnesota organization weren’t on board with their head coach’s decision. Furthermore, Moss hasn’t formerly be waived yet.


What was Childress thinking? He has the right to voice his opinion when it comes to the team’s 53-man roster, but this isn’t like cutting the No. 6 cornerback or a backup long-snapper. This was a major decision in which all of the Vikings’ brass should have been involved. You don’t just cut a player four weeks after the front office gave up a third round pick to acquire him. How stupid.

When he heard the news, my cohort here at TSR John Paulsen asked me this via Skype: “Do you think Childress gets canned before Moss gets waived?”

My response? “If the Vikings are smart – yes.”
