The former Minnesota Vikings coach, Brad Childress has said that he thought the team’s locker room was stable enough to withstand the addition of Randy Moss and admits that he was wrong. He told that they had good guys and by and large walked in the locker room and vomited on it.

The Vikings has acquired Moss from the New England Patriots after starting the 2010 season 1-2. The team waived him four weeks later after going 1-3 in his four games. Moss also claimed by the Tennessee Titans and then this offseason announced he was retiring after 13 seasons.

Brad Childress has said that he was wrong to cut Moss without informing owner Zygi Wilf beforehand. He told that he should have gone up the chain. The Vikings have fired Childress in November last season, after a 31-3 home drubbing against the Green Bay Packers that have dropped Minnesota to 3-7 just one year after the team played in NFC Championship Game.

However, he regrets acquiring Moss. Childress told that he has not regrets about courting quarterback Brett Favre to return to Minnesota for a second season as Favre had his best season ever in 2009 with Vikings.
