A member of the Wilf family, speaking under condition of anonymity, told Star-Trib columnist Sid Hartman that owner Zygi Wilf is happy with the job Brad Childress has done this season, and forecast an NFC North division title for the team this year. So this unnamed member of the Wilf brood sees the Vikings shoring up their myriad problems and fending off the Packers and Bears, teams the Vikings have already lost to once each this year? That’s optimism. Hartman himself, in typical Kool Aid chugger fashion, said he also believes the Wilfs picked the right man when they chose Childress. “No coach in the NFL is perfect, and neither is Childress,” Hartman proclaimed. Yes Sid – but perfection isn’t what we ask for. Competence is. And there are plenty of coaches who have proven themselves more competent than Childress this season. Unfortunately, the whole thing may be out of Brad’s hands anyway – if the Williamses both get suspended, the season is likely doomed.
