Even though A-doo had a couple of drops, I hope they start using him more.

We need a QB who can throw the ball deep and somewhat accurate before Berrian can make too much of an impact. I think we give Webb that chance if Frazier thinks we can win, otherwise Ponder.

Benched Berrian = win. Not just coincidence.

Frazier please explain to Viking Fans how Bernard was any better than Jaymar, Julio or Manny? Cutting him before the season would have saved precious cap space. His negative attitude hasn't changed since last year and his fragile ego is on the brink of shattering. Does anyone think Webb or Ponder could do any worse than completing 50% of their passes? Why is it so hard to do what is so blatantly OBVIOUS?

The likes of McNabb and Aromashodu would not make a single play without AD and Harvin forcing defenses to shorten the field. Just imagine what this team could do with an average QB and just ONE deep-threat WR. Nothing against Devin - good player, but nothing special as an NFL WR. As for McNabb...

BB has sure pulled the wool over Frazier's eyes - can't believe coach is still buying all that bull. CUT HIM ALREADY!

Bernard Berrian needs to be cut. Period. He has a history of throwing quarterbacks under the bus (Favre and McNabb). He has a history of being anonymous sources to media outlets about the coaching staff and overall locker room dynamics (Chicago Sun-Times). He has a history of throwing his own coaches under the bus. The biggest fault, however, is that he takes no accountability for his playmaking abilities (or lackthereof). Coach Frazier made it a point to cut players who were going to be a problem in this organization by cutting Bryant McKinnie during training camp. Frazier and company now need to put a stop to this gravy train Berrian is riding. The Vikings easily won Sunday without him. What else do they need to prove that Berrian is expendable? Am I missing something?

Dear Coach Frazier, You said; "you expect Bernard to play at a high level and help the team." How can you say this? Do you consider 2 receptions in 4 games a high level and what about last season? With that statement, you have insulted every fan with even limited knowledge of football. Most fans and football people have lost total confidence in your ability to be a head coach. I wish you the best in your future job, public speaking is clearly not your strength.
