Comments on Childress (And The Pro Bowl)

Two things on this Monday evening...

1. Brad Childress is going to be the offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns...

I could say a lot of mean things here (as I don't have a whole lot of respect for the way Chili coached our team during his tenure in Minny), but I will instead give a word of warning to Browns fans: prepare to take a step backward before moving forward under Chili. The reason? Chili is about as un-imaginative as they come in terms of designing offenses. Even more distressingly, though, is his stubborn approach to team-building, which favors "his personnel" over plain talent. He can't take a perfectly-formed round peg and coax it into a square hole. Instead, he has to have a square peg to fit that square hole...even if the square peg is perhaps a little ragged around the edges, if you know what I mean.

I think that Chili's approach to team-building can work, but only after the right personnel are chosen and provided Chili has enough control in that area to choose such players. Anything less of those two conditions will produce an utter disaster in Cleveland (although it probably can't get much worse over there, so...).

2. After watching a few snippets of the Pro Bowl last night, I was astounded at how pointless and even shameful the whole affair is. I probably hadn't watched a moment of Pro Bowl action for 3-4 years, but it has gotten measurably worse even in that short time frame. Baseball's All-Star Game got pretty lame in the late 1990s, prompting a much-needed "home field advantage in the World Series" incentive that kept players interested, but it never wreaked of the filth of the current Pro Bowl. Why even play the game? ANYTHING has to be better than what I saw last night. Once upon a time, I actually did enjoy viewing the Pro Bowl. Now? It's a complete joke that needs to be phased out in light of the ever-increasing violence of the sport. Football cannot be played without violence, and makes a mockery of the sport to try and do so.
