Say goodbye to Frazier, the Rams will be in the Super Bowl in the next couple years. While we'll still be sitting here languishing in the mediocrity of another 8-8 season under Klink. "Those who fail to learn from the past, are doomed to repeat it." Think: Dungy, Billick, Tomlin!

Oh no and we just found out he was the reason we won any games at all.

Notice a trend? Any good coaches the vikings have get taken by other teams. I heard something that I didn't know today. Detroit has won a title before. Was way back when, but they have still won one. Not sure if it is true, but was on a sports radio show...

Too bad that they didn't just kick Childress "upstairs" with the title "GM", then, promote Frasier to HC. That way, it takes the card out of Childress' hand, & as HC, Les could slam-dunk Bevell. That way, the crummy play calling of Bevell & Butthead would be finished, we'd have the new HC everyone seems to want, and Wilf & Childress get to save face.(Nice to fantasize, but of course it'd never happen)

I suppose it would **** if he left. Any rumors on a replacement?


Probably somebody within the org. already. That would at least keep continuity.- Hope that they keep Kleinsasser on. Sharper's probably gone. EJ will be back. Udeze probably will be back. Farwell should be back... Wilf's sound like they want to "solidify" the QB position. Considering what they spent for Allen,(a good investment) maybe Cassel being considered isn't as big of a stretch of imagination than people think. I wanted them to make the Allen deal in the worse way, but didn't think they'd do it. Was happy as all hell that they did. So, you never know...

Swell, another top assistant looks to be leaving and the Vikings are again stuck with the deadwood. After Dungy, Billick and Tomlin you'd think somebody would tip that they're letting the wrong guys go.

The defensive coordinator leaving isn't as big of an issue as the offensive coordinator staying! Daryl Bevell has no rythm to call plays and he cannot coach his team to run a two minute offense, fire him and bring in a proven offensive coordinator!

This D will not miss a beat next year regardless of who gets the title "D Coordinator". Just like when Tomlin left. The reality is the "players make the coach" more than the "coach makes the players". You absolutely have to have talented players to win (see Vikes QB situation). Frazier goes to St. Louis and they win 4-5 games next year. Their best days are behind them. Injury prone, ave. QB, old WR, physical RB who will be out of the league in 3 years due to wear and tear,an aging washed up LT and no D. Good luck with all that Leslie.....remember you will only get 3 years to be a playoff team.

Bummer. I agree with Arch, although Klink as GM is pretty scary.

If Wilf would have been taking notes, when Mcnabb was bad Chilly was the coach. Since he left Mcnabb looks better. Our problem is not the quarterback it is the coach.... FIRE HIM PLEASE........

Yeah, I know. But it's even scarier having him holding that play card. Makes a person sorta wonder what the hell Bevell actually does, other than to be Klink's toady.(Like Klink was back in Philly. They didn't let him call plays there. Gee, wonder why?)

DC Vike: I'm not saying that you're right or wrong about McNabb. You probably see more Philly games out that way than I do. But it looked back here that what motivated his ***, is when he got benched. Before that, it sounded like he looked like $h!t for quite awhile.- Just saying, pal. No offense intended.(Lol- Like Childress)

Spagnuolo should be our head coach.

This is a useless organization dedicated to making money without consideration for winning football.

I'm done as a Vikings fan - let the idiots satisfied with losing and continued failure support this assembly of rich losers who know - and care nothing of football - or dignity.
