    Bud Grant gives Frazier advice

    Vikings' Frazier takes a bit of advice from Bud Grant

    “I was walking down the hall here at Winter Park,” Frazier said. “And Bud was in his office. I stuck my head in to say hello, and he said, ‘Hey, come on in, sit down, let’s talk.’”

    Grant politely declined an interview request for this story. It’s not his style to upstage current coaches.
    Bud is & always has been a class act.

    If you've ever met him or talked to him, he has this aura that surrounds him that leaves you feeling awe struck & the legendary greatness he emits.

    Exactly. And it's not like he never had the talent, he went to 4 of them and was outcoached in a several and lost all of them. The greatest coach in Vikings history is like the least smelly turd.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    Wow, you guys have no sense of reverence or Vikings history, do you? Just because Bud Grant never won a Super Bowl doesn't mean he wasn't a great coach. Ask all the hundreds of players who played for him.

    I understand that and am happy he has a lot of respect from his players. Personally, I think the measure of success for an NFL coach is a Super Bowl ring.

    Honest question: Do you think Grant was a better coach than Marv Levy?

    I do not agree with this comment.

    I like Grant, but not sure being a good coach 30-40 years ago gives him the right to walk into the current coach's office and start giving him advice.

    Either way, Grant is a class act and shouldn't be referred to as a turd.

    I guess they feel Tarkenton was not great because he didn't win a SB.

    I guess they feel the PPE were not great because they didn't win a SB.

    I guess they feel Warren Moon & Dan Marino weren't great QB's because they didn't win a SB.

    Great individual players, yes. Great teams? Eh... very good teams. Great teams win championships.

    I realize that's tough to hear as a Vikings fan, but it's true.

    Hard to say, that's a really good question. Slightly different eras, of course. I don't think you can really say. I guess if one or the other had won a Super Bowl, you would say they were better. What's your opinion on that question?
