    Frazier - 1st Defensive Coach in Vikings' history

    Anyone else notice that for the 1st time in their history the Vikings hired a defensive coach as head coach. Maybe this foretells good things.

    Van Brocklin, Off Coordinator
    Grant, primarily Off player, Hd Coach w/ no Asst Coaching
    Steckel, WR Coach
    Burns, Off Coordinator
    Green, Off Coordinator
    Tice, OL Coach
    Chilly, Off Coordinator
    Frazier, DEF COORDINATOR!

    Think this means anything?

    Tony Dungy should have been the 1st. PERIOD!

    I think his similarity to the above mentioned Mr Dungy is his biggest asset. Patience and slow to anger, also he seems to know what we need.

    Frazier definitely has his work cut out for him. He is going to have to work harder than Chilli ever did and will have to do more with less, Initially anyway. Wish him well and for all our sakes hope his scheme and master plan works. I don't want to become the Raiders of the north.

    Interesting observation. Defensive coaches have had a lot of success in recent years, excluding the past 2. I'm glad he got the job.

    I also am glad to see he got the gig. Hard to see us watch Dungy and Tomlin leave our own backyards and win somewhere else.

    I hope that the front office is able to keep enough pieces in place to keep us as at least a dark horse in the division next season so we can become contenders again after that.

    Otherwise, we may watch Frazier struggle and end up fired trying to chase the Pack, Bears and even the Lions.

    Agreed.
    I am on that bandwagon too.
    Tomlin was the next missed opportunity.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Re: Frazier - 1st Defensive Coach in Vikings' history

    I don't really see any significance in having a defensive coach over an offensive coach as the head coach.

    On one hand the rules of the league are tilted to offense and while teams do win a SB here and there based on superior defense,the teams that are competing consistently year after year are the ones that have a frachise qb and a great offense.

    That being said coaches like dungy,tomlin and belechik all came from defense backgrounds but what makes them successful is that they are great managers of talent. Hopefully Frazier is a great manager of talent.

    Re: Frazier - 1st Defensive Coach in Vikings' history

    I don't think their background has anything to do with their success.

    What successful teams have in their favor is a damn good QB, but mmore importantly, consistency at the top (either HC or GM).

    PUKERS (DAMN I HATE SAYING THIS) - Would they have won if the fans would have had thier way and TT was shitcanned for getting rid of the Noodle?

    SAINTS - Mueller was a joke, but Loomis is the brains behind that team. As long as the owners keep him and Peyton together they will be competitve. I am going to watch with interest what they do at QB this year. They should be looking for a kid to groom this year.

    STEELERS - The model owner. 3 HC's. Cowher and Tomlin get alot of credit for their recent SB success, however, I give Colbert more of the credit. IMHO he has done a better job than the Pats when it comes to finding and growing their own talent.

    GIANTS - They stuck with their HC and got a SB even though I don't think they have a "Franchise" QB. I initially thought they would slide a bit when Accorsi left but Reese seems to be the right choice.

    COLTS - Long suffering fans were finally rewarded. One of the most consistent teams around though helped. I think the Polian family has alot of say in that consistency my friends.

    STEELERS - See comments above.

    PATRIOTS - Starts with the Krafts, filters down through their FO pukes and goes to the HC who is one of the only ones that can balance FO puke stuff with HC'ng role.

    PATRIOTS - See comments above.

    BUCS - One of the flaws in my logic. Gruden won with Dungies team though.

    PATRIOTS - See comments above.

    RAVENS - Second one of the flaws in my logic. Wouldn't have won it without that defense.

    RAMS - Third flaw in my logic. I still say Faulk was the catalyst (along with the receivers) for that win. I think his recent tap for the HOF validates that line of thought.

    BRONCOS - Elway was fun to watch, but lets not forget, he had alot of come from behind wins, not because they were blowing teams out, but because they were behind alot. You can't win without an effective running game. When the started using the ZB scheme, they finally won one for John.
    BRONCOS - See comments above.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
