Charchian, a radio personality on a station known for Vikes homerism, blasted the organization following yesterday's loss.
In the wake of another abysmal performance by the Vikings' passing game, KFAN's Paul Charchian is mad as hell and unwilling to take it anymore.

During an appearance on Fox 9, Charchian -- a host and frequent contributor to a number of shows on KFAN, the Vikings' flagship radio station -- repeatedly offered up this analysis of his feelings after the Purple squandered another otherworldly performance by Adrian Peterson yesterday in Green Bar: "I'm pissed."

Charchian, to the chagrin of his Fox co-hosts, went on to call for inept QB Christian Ponder and the Vikings coaching staff to lose their jobs this offseason. Here's the footage:



Coming into this season, the Vikings were widely expected to finish last in the NFC North, so in that context, hearing Charchian call for a mass firing with the Vikings at 6-6 is surprising. Then again, nobody expected the team to get out of the gate with a 4-1 record or for Adrian Peterson's surgically reconstructed knee to be capable of career-long runs like this gem from yesterday:



Adrian finished with 210 yards on the day. Coming into the game, only seven times since 1960 has a team had a player rush for more than 200 yards in a losing effort. In related news, after yesterday's 119- yard, 2-INT debacle, Ponder's stats through his first 22 starts are almost identical to Tarvaris Jackson's numbers throughout his disappointing 20-start Vikings career. Wasting what may turn out to be AP's best season thanks to an awful passing attack that leaves Vikes fans pining for the days of Chili's "kick ass offense"? We're pissed, too.

Fast forward and what have we learned.  Well, we've learned what a lot of us in this town have suspected for a long time.  Paul Charchian is an idiot.  Seriously, why does anyone listen to this guy?

Anyone think the Queens would do anything in the playoffs anyway?

Why would they fire Frazier for playing him, when it's orders from above to play him?

Weren't all these guys totally psyched about Ponder and the team two months ago? Vikings fans are easily the most fair weather bandwagoneers in the whole league

Bring in Prince to play quarterback. Isn't it obvious?

You guys seem to think Webb is any better?? C'mon now, he was almost cut.

The only two players that wanted to win that game were Adrian Peterson and Jared Allen.

I agree with Charchian 100%...he's absolutely correct! Heads need to start rolling if this team is going to go anywhere. They are, indeed, wasting the best years of some very promising careers (Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin, Jared Allen, Chad Greenway, etc)! He's absolutely correct here. There has to be some accountability!

Joe Webb seemed to do a decent job when subbing for Favre...I don't understand why they don't utilize him more often. At least give him a chance if Ponder's messing up so much!
