I hope Coach Frazier gets a Head Coaching job, but I woul hate to see him go to Detroit. They are the T-Wolves of the NFL. There are much better situations out there. Take your time, Coach!

I wouldn't begrudge a man an opportunity like this either. however, I am so tired of this bs...we have a history of supplying the nfl with very good caoching personnel(billick, dungey, tomlin come to mind);the prevailing attitude among other teams is:"hey we need a head coach...let's give the vikes a call"..enuff already.I would rather we did something more to keep frazier with us, and groom him to be our next head coach. make him klink's assistant, give him the dome...i don't care, but let the other team's find and groom their own,,,,if they can1...STAY LES AND GO VIKES!!!

Keep Frazier and send Childress to that interview.
It will be Tony Dungy time again.

Okay, let's do the intelligent thing this time...keep Frazier around and let them interview Childress. That'll put them even further behind in the division than they are now and we'll keep the best coach, coaching the Vikings.

well, i was going to post on this one, but it seems everyone else is of similar mind. point being we have had a grip of fantastic coaches in our midst and have let them go other places, while we end up with col. klink and captian tice of the s.s. loveboat. i think i started saying we should replace klink with frazier about week three. baldy is kinda growing on me, but the process has been painful and without an optimistic end in sight. think he would be better suited for front office or something.

This organization just doesn't learn no matter who the owner is. Tony Dungy was allowed to leave to become a head coach (his record speaks for itself) and the Vikings kept the pathetic Dennis Green. Same thing happened with Mike Tomlin as the Vikings are stuck with Brad Childress. Tomlin will forget more than Childress will ever know. And if Leslie Frazier moves on.... The Wilfs are clueless.

I would take any one of those QB's over our two and team them up with our defense. I think it gives us a better chance to win.

...if it becomes possible to go after cassel...i'm not sure i would want to pay the asking price...it appears ( and if i were the pats, it would be a no brainer), that they may try and put the franchise tag on him...that way they are assured of getting something decent via a trade as opposed to just letting him become a free agent. if they do that...you can be assured they would want the farm. my guess is that chili will see if mcnab is interested and available and go from there with tj and booty....GO VIKES!!!

Apparently our Defensive Coordinator is a plug and play deal. Let him go and let Chilly pick out the next diamond in the rough.
Everyone is talking about all of the coaches who came through Minny. You all forgot about Scott Linehan! Lol. Talk about a bust.

Remember Tampa Bay was a laughing stock before Dungy came in and turned it around. Now they are a very respected that is in and around the playoffs every year.
