I don't want Cowher, Gruden, Billick or any other coach who has been a TV analyst, talking head etc. If they make a change though, as I have been saying for years is they need a real football guy to run the club. Then let that guy hire his own coach that fits his philosophy and build the team from the ground up in a new image. It can be done and to me that is the only way to do it.
Take GB in the early 90's for example. They had a few decades of terrible teams but brought in Wolf, who hired Holmgren and guilt a staff and instilled a standard of performance that is still there today. The 49ers did it in the 80's like that and so did the Patriots when they brought in Pioli and Belechik.
I am really not in any mood to just tinker at the margins with the team any more and I get the feeling from the local fans I know that I am not alone in thinking that. We need a fresh, bold change to shake up the team, shake up the fans and shake up the league and get us out of the image of the laughing stock and the punch line of the week.

It is my belief that Frasier benefited from the Rooney rule and getting interviews which he probably NEVER deserved. That rule made him a legit candidate in the eyes of teams as he was getting interviews when in fact there was NO reason to believe he had EARNED that sort of recognition to be a head coach. Most candidates are ones that have shown to be superior in their field of being defensive and offensive coordinators. Frasier never was that guy. He never did anything spectacular as a d coordinator in Minnesota or even Indy. Indy had a great offense and a marginal defense. Of course the Vikings bit and it's going to bite them. This guy lives in 1985. It's 2013 and the game has changed drastically. YOu can't win in this league with a run first mentality and a somewhat servicable qb, which Ponder is not even that. The proof is in the pudding. Peterson has rushed for almost 1000 yards in SIX games and we are 1-5.

Frazier is absolutely awful. Let's bring someone in here with a proven track record.

The guy is supposed to be a defensive specialist... in terms of points given up, our defense was ranked 31st last year and 18th this year. Maybe it's me, but I'm tired of settling for mediocrity.

Going into the season if you had told me I would be 6-6 after 12 games I would have taken it ... and would think that Frazier must be doing something special.
A new coach is not going to change our ridiculous lack of offensive personnel.
