    Frasier really has no credentials to be a head coach. He received interviews around the league because of the Rooney rule. Do you really think he gets those without that? That creates a idea that this guy must be a REAL candidate. Tell me what he's done to warrant his hire. Did he coach a top 5 defense for a few years? He was Dungy's head coach assistant...pffft. Guys like Frasier get swallowed up in this league. The players have changed. They don't play for coaches, they play for money and getting noticed so they can cash in. They have zero integrity to head guys. The head guys that succeed are the ones that get in their grill and tell them what reality is in his world. When you hear about players saying how much they love playing for a guy, get ready for faliure. The top guys are not player coaches. They are hard asses that keep these punks in their place. Coughlin, Parcels, Billecheck, not Frasier, Phillips, or yes even Dungy. Let's face facts Dungy was no great coach. He had a great qb. Now we're to believe Frasier is some Dungy prodgy...big mistake.

    It's time for Ziggy to do the right way and actually have a SEARCH for a competent head coach instead of TWO STINKING INTERVIEWS AND HIRE CHILDRESS AND FRASIER.

    LOL at that article for including Gruden and Cowher in the list.

    Horton isn't a bad candidate, but I don't know if I want another defensive coach. I want an offensive minded coach again (and no, while Childress offended most, I don't consider him an offensive minded coach. ).

    Either way, there is a lot of season left before we can even start thinking about other candidates...

    We are young and unproven throughout our roster, FO and coaching staff. If we want to bring in a proven field general I would guess that they would want a fair amount of autonomy. As Caine points out quite often, this is where the problem seems to lie. The Wilf's want to have involvement in how this franchise is run and don't want to hire people that will question them. Unless they change their tune, we will have to hope that one of these unproven guys can figure something out.

    Earlier I thought the solution would be to bring in solid OC and DC's and leave them alone while Leslie deals with the noise (ie., Zygi/Mark/Rick/HR). Leslie may be fine with this approach (or not), but not sure MN can lure these guys to come over. Usually they come and work for a HC that has had success and can respect. Probably why we have guys like Musgrave (veteran, but shaky track record) and Pagac/Williams (promotion).

    Totally agree. We need an offensive minded coach. The defense will not get any worse. Brian billick anyone? Haha

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I think the statement isn't broad enough, more like under this staff. I could see Frazier being dropped during the bye bye week if there are repeats of last week's performance but am less than thrilled with the idea of Singletary or Musgrave as a possible interim coach

    I'm more worried about the Qb than the coach. A great QB will make a bad coach look good(see Favre 09), a bad QB will make a good coach look bad(see Shannahan the last 2 years in washington).
    Until Frazier has a good QB to work with I find it difficult to evaluate him.

    We should take a serious look at re-hiring Childress.
