Brad Childress Press Conference
October 25, 2010 by Post Team
After Minnesota’s 28-24 defeat to the Packers, Childress was unusually frank comments to Greg Coleman KFAN in an interview after the game.
When asked to evaluate the play of Brett Favre – who threw three interceptions and had a couple of others and surprising moments along the way – Childress said he does not believe Favre problems are physical in nature.
“He has everything you need – you need to play in our system,” said Childress. “That’s the most important.”
comments after the game freeze Childress recalled a stretch last season when he and Favre head butt after the quarterback appeared to improvise too much for the taste of coaching during road losses to Arizona and Carolina. In the loss to the Panthers, Childress seemed ready to bench Favre, and the gap between the two could be revived after Favre’s worst game of the 2010 season.
When Coleman asked about the difficulty of winning despite three turnovers, had another chance Childress said Favre, saying: “There will always be difficult in that way. It is hard to beat on the road. … I have to watch football, and that’s a fact. ”
Childress likely was more upset with the decision of Favre in his second interception of the night, which was returned 32 yards for a touchdown by Desmond Bishop. The game was reportedly designed to go across the countryside, where Percy Harvin was open as bishop was to intercept the ball and walking on the opposite side.
In its own press conference after the game, Favre shrugged off the suggestion that he had made a bad decision on the play.
“I would say the same, after the fact,” Favre said. “Then I saw the picture I saw under Percy was open on the other side, so I can not disagree with him. But from my point of view, to choose a side in certain games. I wonder where all the world would be wide open. sure would make my reads a lot easier. But I can not disagree with him. ”
Favre again hurt his left ankle while throwing his first interception, and walked cautiously in the leg the other night. However, Childress said he gave no indication he was considering pulling him even after releasing their third pick early in the fourth quarter.
“We do not talk about it,” Favre said. “I think that gave me the illusion that he was injured, however, is not limping on every play.”
Despite falling 2-4 with a game in New England is coming up next Sunday, the quarterback coach and head tried to stay positive after the game.
“I think we have the character, leadership and talent to change that,” said Favre, who said he was not sure if the ankle would allow him to play against the Patriots. “You can not say anything about the effort.”
Childress echoed the thoughts of their own comments. “They have great determination,” he said of the players in their locker room. “We have a lot of guys who fight. It’s a long season long football you can not get mentally ill over it.”
