Brett Favre Should Be Coaching the Vikings

Recently, Brett Favre got into an argument with Vikings coach, Brad Childress, about calling plays on the fly. In essence, Favre wanted full authority to be able to call the shots. But Childress said, "I'm the coach."

My gut response was to support Childress. Since then, I've thought about it a little more. Favre is one of the best quarterbacks to ever live, and has more real-game experience than practically anyone in the world. Who is more qualified to improvise strategy than he is?

Just because a coach is the "coach", it's a dictatorship? Maybe Childress needs to just suck up his pride and trust Favre a little more. But, that can be hard to do when you're the one accountable for the result.
