I don't know if Brad Childress saved his job yesterday, but I'd bet that Wade Phillips lost his.
The Vikings were getting their butts kicked and looked terrible yesterday -- in fact, they looked so bad that I turned the game off and went out to do some yard work. By the time I got back in from cleaning up leaves in the back yard, the score was tied and they went on to stuff Arizona in overtime and score a winning field goal. With all the soap opera elements at Winter Park, it would have been easy for the Vikings to lay down and die. They didn't.
Then last night I watched my beloved Packers kick Dallas to the curb. Not that it was that difficult to do. The Cowboys put on a shameful performance in Green Bay yesterday and it was obvious that they had quit as a team. It's tough to win without your quarterback but the way Dallas was playing it wouldn't have mattered if Tony Romo were out there.
As much as I enjoyed seeing the Packers play very well yesterday, it's difficult to really gauge how good a team they actually are. It's much easier to tell that the Cowboys are terrible.
