Just when you thought the Vikings organization couldn't have sunk any lower, they hit new depths on Monday after disgruntled wide receiver Randy Moss was waived.

After the game, Moss gave a rather unpleasant rant that blasted Vikings head coach Brad Childress and his play-calling and praised the entire New England Patriots organization.

Well, that was a great third-rounder well spent. If you were keeping track, Moss grabbed just 13 receptions and two touchdowns in four games.

After watching Moss play against the Patriots on Sunday, it was extremely clear that Moss didn't want to have any part in a Patriots upset. He gave up from the first snap and gave the Patriots an easy win over Minnesota.

A few plays before Favre's injury, Favre threw a pass to Moss which fell incomplete. On the play, a penalty was thrown for pass interference on the Patriots, but it was extremely clear that Moss just gave up. After regaining balance and with his eyes still on the ball, Moss jogged and watched the ball fall just three yards from where he was standing. It was an easy touchdown if he put his arms out towards the ball.

It's definitely a surprising move. The Vikings likely won't receive anything for Moss, not even a compensatory pick.

It's clear that the Vikings organization is in shambles. They have the worst head coach in the NFL and there are no signs indicating a change in coaching.

Fans from Minnesota have every right to be outraged. This team is not a 2-5 team as their record indicates. Brad "Clueless" is destroying this team one day at a time.

If there are any brains inside the Vikings organization, Childress will not have a job come Tuesday. Then again, it's probably just wishful thinking.

The list of stupid decisions made by Childress and company is long and includes several gems.

How about that one time Childress had not one, but two timeouts 25 seconds before halftime and walked off the field?

I've got another. Who would you rather run behind, Anthony Herrera or Steve Hutchinson? By the way Childress calls plays, it seems as though Herrera is the future Hall of Famer and one of the best guards to ever play the game.

I, for one, will be hanging up all hopes of this season. I will not be a fan of this franchise so long as Brad Childress is the head coach. I have absolutely zero respect for the franchise and fans from all over Vikings country should not tolerate this poor play any longer.

How can you be such a huge fan of a team and quit on them when the going gets rough? Well, a head coach like Brad Childress will do that to you.

I leave you all with a final note: Go Packers...or Bears...go Lions...go any other team playing the Vikings.
