Randy Moss Told Vikings Owner That Brad Childress Should Be Fired

As the fallout continues from Randy Moss' release in Minnesota, more stories of his disruptive attitude and behavior continue to emerge. First, this was his incident with the catering the Vikings chose -- "What the [expletive]? Who ordered this crap? I wouldn't feed this to my dog!"

And now, according to Judd Zulgad and Chip Scoogins of the Star Tribune, there's a report that following the loss to the Patriots, Moss told Vikings owner Zygi Wilf that head coach Brad Childress should be fired.

Wilf is believed to have seen just how volatile Moss could be. After catching only one pass for 8 yards in the Vikings' 28-18 loss to the New England Patriots, Moss walked into the visitors' locker room where Wilf and other executives stood. According to an NFL source familiar with what transpired, Moss told the Vikings owner in no uncertain terms that Childress wasn't a good coach and should be fired.
