"Frazier continues to express great optimism that the Vikings offense is on the verge of a major leap forward,". Working on shoring up the defense, or the almost total lack of it might be a better plan.

Let AP go to a WINNING team. I think everyone can agree the vikes will not break 500 for at least 2 more years. That is the MN way of doing things (Garnett, Thome) let the star players thrive on a top caliber team like they deserve...especially since they wont have a place to play next year.

Leslie is in lah- lah land. He is a total bust and everyone but Leslie knows it. Just the fact he thinks his offensive coordinator has it together and ready to bust out shows how out of touch this guy really is. Ziggy you are not stupid so quit pretending that Leslie is still going to be the head coach next year, otherwise get ready to feel it in your pocket book which we are sure you want to watch.

Peterson had his shot to help the Vikes but he fumbled it away at NO. Trade this joker for some picks and let's build the o-line. I'm tired of the Vikes puting the cart before the horse. With a great o-line, even a couch-potato like me could run thru it. So what if we have the best RB in the NFL; look where it got us this year. GO 2014 VIKINGS!!!

New coaches, no offseason, no minicamps/OTAs, rookie QB, no receivers outside of Harvin all contribute to an anemic offense. The Vikes at this point just need a good draft and a solid offseason to get back on track.
