Why? Why? Why? Why? How more inept can a coaching staff possibly be?? This is downright embarrassing!! I'm absolutely disgusted as a Vikings fan. How could you have the worst record in the history of the franchise and not be on the hot seat?? Unreal!

Yay! Maybe we can bring back Berrian and McNabb too!

Am I to understand that according to Zygi the Vikings are 2-10 because Peterson has been injured for a few games? This is why this team will never win a Super Bowl. The owner is an idiot. Take a look at the decisions Frazier has made and decide if he is the man you honestly think can lead this team to a championship. I would say he isn't but I don't own the team. This team needs an owner who would give his left nut for a ring. Zygi wants a stadium...Big difference.

I think in time Ponder will be a great QB, I would rather watch him learn and play than sit on the bench and watch someone else. The season is done except for entertainment's sake, so let's see what he can do, and build for the future. As far as the head coach, I agree with the previous post, how can his job be safe?? If you want a new stadium how about holding a contest to fund it, whomever pitches in the most money gets to either be the next head coach, or name the next head coach. Either way the team wins, because currently the team seems to hire the first person they see. Hey, it's worth a shot, it can't be any worse than the last couple of coaches that were hired with no competition. We are all living the result of that, not much fun is it? If this idea doesn't work, how about interviewing a minimum of two people for the next head coach? Just a thought. What is currently going on is turning the team into cellar dwellers from what I am seeing looking at the standings.

"as Harvin proved he is the best receiver in the NFL.". Are you kidding me Sid?

What I'd like to see is for Frazier to bring in some former head coaches as assistants. If you look at the top teams in the league, they ALL have a coordinator or two that used to be head coaches. I still question the coaching staff and hope that Frazier is on a short leash next season, but for a rookie coach and to have to deal with the injuries that we've had, I think it's fair he gets another crack at it. But, the coaching staff behind him needs to be upgraded.

"What I'd like to see is for Frazier to bring in some former head coaches as assistants".....you mean like Singletary?

Aggggh! Our committment to mediocrity continues. Frazier and his staff are the worst at making adjustments at half and just simple coaching mistakes like last we not challenging Percy's TD, while today we should have let them score to get the ball back, a time out before 2:00 etc. Frazier's not ready for the big time. I'm done, disgusted and out!

Being satisfied with the operation of a 2-10 team is just another way of saying that Mr. Wilf no longer feels the need to maintain the fiction that he was ever interested in it except as a way to achieve his real estate development goals. With the need to have the chumps buy him a stadium and having some new digs to get furnished why concern yourself with something which people seem eager to pay to see regardless of the quality of play?

Hang in there Vikings. You are depleted with injuries and now are rebuilding with Ponder. You have my faith as a fan.
