Winfield has no regrets

Vikings CB Antoine Winfield said he had a productive meeting with coach Brad Childress, after his criticism of the offense Monday.
But Winfield did learn a lesson.
"I know what to, and what not to, say in the media," Winfield said.
Winfield said he had a "positive conversation" with Childress.
Asked if he had any regrets, Winfield said, "Oh, no regrets.
"I think it was a good thing. I could tell this morning, in our team meeting," Winfield said.
Childress said during his press conference that he can "understand his frustration."
"He's a great competitor," Childress said of Winfield. "He's a guy that puts it out there each and every week of the season. He has for a long period of time, whether it's Buffalo or here, and he's frustrated. He's an eight-year pro who wants to win, who probably is not going to play another eight years, and he wants to win now. And so I feel it."
FB Tony Richardson and TE Jermaine Wiggins were among the veterans who supported Winfield's comments.

I'm of the stance of bringing concerns up internally. Like in real businesses, some issues can be fixed without letting the people above know.

Sounds like it worked out OK.

The last two days, I haven't sensed any resentment toward Antoine, and players genuinely seem to be Ok with it.
