Brady: Belichick wouldn't act like Childress

Brad Childress called out B. Favre during his Sunday night news conference (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Remember how Vikings coach Brad Childress pretty much lambasted Brett Favre after the Vikings loss to Green Bay on Sunday?

He basically said that Favre’s three interceptions cost his team badly. Which, of course, was completely obvious. But then again, a Favre who only had one leg under him nearly led his team to a stirring comeback. Later on, Childress looked a little like a jackass when he revealed Favre was playing with two ankle fractures.

Said Childress: “It still goes back to taking care of the football. You can’t throw it to them. You’ve got to play within the confines of our system. Sometimes it’s O.K. to punt the football, and you can’t give seven points going the other way. Not in a game like this. Not with a high-powered team.”

And this:

“Yeah, the (interception) to (Desmond) Bishop, I’d have to look at that because I’d like to know where we’re going with the football, because I believe the play was designed to go to the other side and I think Percy’s standing there in big air, so not sure why we’re looking at the left-hand side.”

The “we” obviously refers to “him,” as in Brett Favre.

Which leads us to Patriots QB Tom Brady’s weekly appearance on WEEI radio this morning.

He was asked about Childress’ comments, and Brady said, “I think every head coach has different styles to motivate their players. Coach [Bill] Belichick, he doesn't ever do that to anybody. It doesn't matter if I threw seven interceptions, he would never do that. But there's no doubt that he's going to bring that up to me at some point, probably right away, in front of the team, as well. He's going to make the point that he needs to make in order to try to get his players to play better."

The fact Childress did it in such a public way, though, surely won’t win him many friends in the Minnesota locker room.

P.S.  Favre wouldn't come out and start criticizing another teams coach.  I guess that means Brady is the lesser of the two QB's.

So am I to take from this that Belichek is the gold standard for how coaches should act?  If so, does that mean that they all should dress like homeless slobs and place spy camera's on the visitor's side?

Childress is an ass. He throws Favre under the bus, even though #4 is the only reason Childress has a new contract. What's more, which coach didn't throw the red flag to negate the obvious drop of the Packers touchdown in the first half? Which coach completely wussed out at the end of the first half, even though the team had two timeouts and the ball in decent field position...to the utter amazement of the only two Hall of Famers on the field. Which coach let the team lose Chester Taylor, perhaps the biggest difference between last year's overachievers and this season's underachievers? Which coach fails to realize the biggest problems the Vikings had Sunday night was their total inability to stop the Packers on third down? Favre haters can say all they want about #4 (he did cough up a brutal pick-6), but Childress is the ass who gave up the W Sunday night.
