    I dunno about the rest of you, but I'm just SICK of seeing our Coordinators go to other teams as Head Coaches and win Super Bowls with them. Billick, Dungy, Tomlin...let's not add Frazier to the list without at least seeing what he can do for us!
    THANK YOU, ndnorseman! Great post!

    All the on here needs to :cheer: and look at the positive sides! The team did look better, the players did play more disciplined, the play-calling did look better, etc.

    How many points do the Vikings have to score to impress everyone? For Christ' sake! we went from 31-3 against our most hated rivals, the biggest blowout loss in 10 years or something, to a victory on the road over a team that still has a chance to make the playoffs. Hey, that's all I could ask for.
    What do you think the score would be if we played our rivals that blew us out 31-3 again today? :unsure:

    I don't think anyone is trying to take anything away from the win. I think some of us (now that the dust has settled) are just rethinking the whole game and coming away with possibly a little more tempered viewpoint of the win.

    I bet the majority of us are worried about the Bills this week. The Bills for goodness sake.

    Because of that, atleast for me, thats the way it is. Overjoyed with the win, but over time, just rethinking it a bit as we start looking at the Bills.

    Probably 28-17. :lol:

    I'm just trying to say that a win is a win and that several aspects of the Vikings game looked much improved. I can't remember the last time we had so little penalties and turnovers. I'm pretty sure it was the first time this year. Plus, Childress lost the last 8 games on the road, Frazier needed only one game to turn that around.

    I'm definitely not saying that we should crack open a bottle of wine, but I will say this: A saw positives signs from Frazier's first game as HC, and I think most can agree with that.

    I agree with you except for one detail. I saw a team that gave a better effort against the Skins.
    A good team? No, but a little better team, with the exception of special teams and safety play.

    Will they beat the Bills at home?

    They should but I have my doubts.

    While it is possible that the Vikings will announce Frazier's signing as early as this week, it is also possible that they will wait until after this week's game to determine whether Frazier can extend his run against better competition. The downside to the latter ploy is that the team allows Frazier more time to prove himself and consider that there are other openings in the off-season. That would increase Frazier's asking price and the Vikings would prefer, of course, to pay less rather than more for the same product. It would also at least create the possibility that the Vikings would be searching for a new head coach this off-season, having let get away the coach that they preferred.

    Hmmmmm, although this cat seems to be winning me over, I'm not so sure I think I would do anything rash especially if it just because you want to save a few bucks.

    If he's the man, pay him, but for cripes sake lets find out if he is the man first.

    Agreed. If they want him later on, then that's fine, but do NOT extend him now. Its the same thing they did with Chilly, and that backfired.

    Re: THE OFFICIAL "WHO IS OUR NEXT COACH" THREAD?

    From a financial standpoint, it makes perfect sense. Why overpay him, or any other coach when the organization's future is still up in the air, pending a new stadium? That's also likely why they haven't re-signed their key players yet also.
