Vikings, Childress working on new deal?

Brad Childress may be getting a new contract, at least according to NBC Sports. It would seem that signing everyone's favorite Green Purple Dinosaur is beginning to do the magic Childress wanted: keeping his butt out of the hot seat. Minnesota may be getting ahead of itself here.
A 6-0 schedule sound good, but half of those victories are from facing junk teams (Lions, Browns, Rams). The Vikings squeaked by The Ravens (3-3) last week, and the Packers and 49ers kept their losses reasonably close. This weeks up-coming game against the Steelers may well be the game which tells how good the Vikings are. And Minnesota still hasn't faced Chicago yet.
And those victories? They probably had more to do with Barney and The Repitllian than Childress' stellar coaching skills.
The Vikings should probably be planning on how to deal with the inevitable post-season Favre "retirement"/"non-retirement"/"I'm too good for training camp schtick that made Green Bay tire of him in the first place. Then again, re-upping Childress may just be the first step in trying to see that doesn't happen.
