Frazier is one of the best coordinators in the league??????????

Bob.......... if you would get your face out of the pizza once
in a while and actually watch the games..........

Since Frazier got the job we have improved the talent ( Allen),
and yet the D is getting worse every year.

Frazier version of the "cover-two" should be called The Bermuda
Triangle......... the safties go into it, and are never seen again.

The Rooney rule will get him interviews, but his defense is underachieving and he isn't playing the best safetys on the his roster. I have never seen any schemes or blitzes that is impressive.

Mike Tomlin was a great coordinator and has proven to be a winning head coach, but Frazier isn't in the same league. If there's a good replacement available, I don't think we'll be losing anything if he departs. With one of the top defensive coordinators, I think we have the talent to be a top-five defense, but as it is we're middle of the road and have often had to rely on offense to win.
By the way, the Rooney rule is one of the most retarded things the NFL has ever come up with. If a team sacks its coach and already has a replacement lined up who is white, they either have to "go through the motions" or be in violation. We're not living in 1965, lets get with the times.

The best time to go job hunting is when you already have a good one. He'll go in a flash if some team offers

Frazier has done a good job. Remember we lost Winfield for 6 weeks and Pat Williams for a couple but I think the biggest loss that the talking heads don't even talk about is E.J. Since he went down the D has not been the same. We're playing situational linebacker's and it's not getting done. We get to many miss matches that have lead to some big plays. Our third down stops have gone down as well short or long. We can't seem to get off the field,that's what really concern's me next week against the Cowboys.

Well fellow Vikings fans, it is not good for us that Dallas won. We don't have anyone capable of covering Miles Austin and the Dallas Defense looked good tonight. I have A bad feeling we again will be one and done right now other than the Giants peewee team we have been back pedaling well there is always next year and we can try and draft the top quarterback I just wish we got to beat the Packers one more time but neither of us will still be in the playoffs just no way this Vikings team has a chance in heck of Beaing the Cowboys it was fun while it lasted.

Put Sanford in and quit wasting the team's time hoping that Johnson lives up to his draft position. He can't tackle and shies away from contact.

Sanford, ready to go at safety. Sapp would also make a great safety-he would need to learn the position, but he hits hard and plays the ball.

You're crazy Muskrat. Dallas is exactly the team we wanted to play. We will crush them. Crush them.

No worries in Vikingland. We will harass Romo into making bad decisions all day long. They can't run on us. We'll turn them into a one-dimensional attack and make them play catch up, since their defense won't be able to stop Adrian or Sidney. We'll put up 30+ points and grind AllDay.

Much rather face the Boys then those Iggles. Love to see Philly one and done.

With Pete Carroll going to Seattle, Mangini keeping his job in Cleveland, Shanahan in Denver and Cable apparently somehow staying in Oakland, I don't really see anywhere for Frazier to go this year. His loss is our gain. There is something to be said for consistency at the Coordinator position. Players get to know the expected schemes much better when they are consistent from year to year without the constant turnover.

Skol Vikes.
