    It's finally official. It's also announced that our new Defensive Line coach will be Brendan Daly. Former assistant DL coach here, and DL coach in STL.

    @TomPelissero
    Alan Williams has accepted the #Vikings DC position and Brendan Daly the DL coaching job, per the team's Web site.

    @TomPelissero
    Frazier: "Alan and Brendan have both proved themselves as quality coaches in our League. I had the chance to work directly with both men and cant say enough about their character, work ethic and ability to connect with players and push them to be their best.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    I'm told no further changes to #Vikings coaching staff are planned. That means Joe Woods stays as well as Pagac, Singletary. Conf call soon.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Well whether liked or not its official so consider some positives from this. Pagac goes back to looking after the LBs who, up to last year, had played well under his coaching. This removes Singletary from buggering about with that unit at least.
    Now Williams was on a team that had a less than stellar defence this season thats not in doubt but how much of that was due to the plays called by the DC there, along with the fact that the Colts offense wasn't scoring points. We've seen similar here, don't forget when we couldn't score and the D were constantly being left out to dry as a result.
    I'm not saying that Williams is guaranteed to be a HOF DC - yet, however he could be the same as Tomlin, whom a lot of people raised eyebrows at on his appointment and showed to be a damn good DC.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    This really sucks unless you revel in failure.
    He was also the defensive backs coach for the No. 8, No. 11, No. 11, No. 11 and No. 3 defense in the league at some point in his career. And was the DB coach for the No. 1 scoring defense in 2007 and a Super Bowl winning defense in 2006.

    One year does not make a break a player or a coach in this league.

    I don't love or hate the hire, but to think because last year the Indy defense struggled this guy can't coach is a little shortsighted. Indy was a train wreck last year. And if you think it would have been any different with Bill Belichik coaching ... you are most likely wrong.

    That all said. I do not like Frazier. I do not like the C-2 really and think that no matter who the OC, DC, etc. is ... this team and it's "system" are in trouble.

    Yeah and the Vikings had similar success sans the SB but our secondary has been shitty for over a decade and none of our DB coaches have been worthy of a DC promotion so I will take your stats with a grain of salt.

    I understand and respect your point though. And like you I agree that the C2 is suspect.

    Personally I have never been less optimistic in an off season and to be honest if we are going into the next season with pretty much the same defensive staff and running the C2 I have absolutely zero interest in even watching it unfold ( Or unravel).

    It seems if you had a shitty season last year coaching and GM'ing the Vikings will give you a promotion....

    Exactly. Yet my site is being ridiculed. Especially on the facebook fan page. We only have 7 signatures in a whole week of being up. We need the unhappy fans to step up and let their voices be heard.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    MM, though I admire your passion as a Vikings fan, signing an online petition really does nothing except allow someone to say they are unhappy. My guess it will make no difference, until we turn into Detroit.

    At least now, hopefully, someone can be accountable for decisions. Though I am not overly happy with the hiring of Spielman, I am willing to see what happens in the next year.

    I am also unhappy with Frazier, and his decisions, but again, willing to give him a bit of rope to see what happens.

    As someone on here as pointed out, if we are all such great football minds, why are we not running a NFL team? We really do not know what goes on behind the scenes, and for that reason, I am willing to give some latitude. I will express my frustration when we do not perform to my expectations, and recently they have not.

    At the end, I do not believe that my signing a online petition will really change anyone's mind.

    Again, I do admire your passion though.

    None of it matters unless we shout chants fire frazier (FF) at vikings games or wear Vote for FF tee-shirts.

    Either way, unless we vote with our wallets and stop going to games the owners won't hear us... All these ppl saying give them a chance blah blah blah... his chance has equaled 6-16. Frazier is no Belichek. I don't want to hear all the lack of an offseason talk... Look at what the 49ers did, Panters with Cam, titans did.. etc.

    Frazier is in over his head, he showed it as D-coordinator and showed it last year... He will most likely have just next year to prove himself. Then Childress comes off the books and we can clean house.

    Regardless of our confidence or lack thereof in the current regimine... I will watch intently, cheer the moves / offseason acquisitions/draft.. and watch the season spin into the abyss next year...

    Then smile and say I told you so!!!
