In a rare move during a conference call today with members of the Detroit media, Vikings coach Brad Childress admitted the Vikings will open Sunday’s game in a rarely-seen formation.

Asked what he would do if RB Adrian Peterson’s knee is not 100 percent, Childress said: “We were actually thinking about putting all our running backs down and seeing if we can run with five wide receivers. I am weighing that heavily since there are no articles of war, and stay in the shotgun and have Tavaris [Jackson] dish it around.”

Fantasy footballers, consider yourselves warned.

In a surprise move Brad Childress has announced that this Sunday he will not in fact be using a QB.
When asked about it Childress was quoted as saying "I don't think the Lions will be prepared for this crazy kick jiggly butt offensive scheme."
He would go on to say that he will just direct snap it to Adrian every time and he has the power to decide whether to run left or right.

Strange. I had heard we were going old school. Snap the ball by throwing the ball backwards. Then form a wedge and run forward. As the player with the ball is about to be tackled, he laterals it to the next guy. The same thing is every play, over and over through the whole game.

Stop that, Marinelli.

5 WR's huh?
Rice, Wade, Williamson, Allison, and Ferguson? :P yea i doubt we'll be seeing that.


But i wouldnt mind it honestly.. if we came out in the formation the least amount of attention would be on rookie Aundrae Allison, since Ferguson and Wade are vets, Williamson has the speed, and Rice has the hands.
If Allison could run down the field almost freely.. i wouldnt mind seeing TJack toss a TD pass to #84 ;) lol.
Or the attention on everyone else would have to leave Rice or TWill single covered deep.

I don't think we'll see it, or at least not on the first couple formations, but it would be fun and interesting if we did.
(Provided our OL can protect long enough)

I think the ole Chiller is just messing with a few of us as well as the local sports hacks with that one but it wouldn't suprise me to see them run that play.

Kindof a reverse phycology thing maybe.
The lions won't expect it cause he said it so they run it.
Whew, the deep dark depths of the Chillers mind boggles even me.

Childress appears to be a guy with a dry sense of humor, my favorite type.
It would be fun to play with the media when they come week after week and ask almost the exact same questions.

Lately Childress has been climbing the rungs of my ever important likeness ladder.

Start with a 2 back, 3 wideout set... have both the backs split out to a 5 receiver set... mmmm, sexy!

My guess is he puts the defensive team in on offense and the offensive team in on defense. The Lions won't know what the hell is happening and by the time they figure it out we will be up by 21.

Rumor has it he is sending postcards to Martz of all the offensive plays.
I just happened to intercept one of the cards.

Why is he revealing the game plan?
I can't stand Martz, the self-proclaimed genius.

Has Childress determined the Adrian ratio yet?

He's getting pressure from the most faithful sniffers.
Rumor has it that he wants to have 45.6% of the offensive plays going to purple jesus.
However, that was from the ballboy and he is only batting 1% on his predicitions.

Teams sometimes take on the personality of the team they are playing, but we won't venture far from what has brought us here.
