Asked to be perfectly clear on whether ownership has said he'll be back for sure, Frazier said, "I haven't been told I'm back for sure. It never has been an issue. I'm being completely honest with you. My job security has never been an issue other than when I'm talking to [the media]. That's the truth." The truth is the leash will be very short, maybe 3 games into next season, but then again with a so-called management team in place like this dedicated to mediocrity anything is possible. So discouraging.

Jamarca Sanford has been limited all int's, limited coverage skills, limited pursuit angles etc.

fogman, exactly right, in my mind Frazier has to go, too may mistakes for me. In my mind about 4 guys should have been sitting the last 2 games. How we could have been trying to win the last 2 games with the number 1 pick riding is beyond me. It wouldnt suprise me if they win the Bears game and drop another 3 places in the draft, typical Vikings BS.

Get well Adrian. The kid's a beast. He's going to blow past all recovery milestones in his rehab. Looking forward to seeing 28 back on the field.

will say again ... RECONSTRUCT HIM BEST AS POSSIBLE ... Put him on the trading block - best offer / highest bidder wins. He should never step on a football field again in Purple. He is not needed in the ROCKING REBUILD . Get WHAT you can for him WHILE you can. Don't wait until a 7th round trade is all that will come a knockin . . HELP WANTED : BRILLIANT FOOTBALL MINDS / VISIONARIES TO RESTORE THE FRANCHISE TO GREATNESS .... STATUS QUO - KEEP DOING WHAT WE'RE DOING-ers NEED NOT APPLY ...

The PURPLE will never see the LOMBARDI PARTY with PETERSON in the backfield. Is is time to go with the head and not the heart.
