Personally, I hope that Leslie is successful as our head coach. He's doing things the right way and molding a team based on mutual respect, open communication, and hard work. All things that are easy to respect.

My priest is a good guy too, and will certainly spend eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven. However, if he goes 3-13 two years in a row I would hope the Lord would motivate the Wolfs to fire him.

Coach Frazier spoke at our church this summer. I was neutral on the coach before this talk, but now I'm a huge fan. He's living life the way it should be lived. He's already finished first.

Give Coach Frazier 3 full seasons. Barring something insane happening, all new coaches deserve 3 full seasons. The Vikings have a history of horrible coaches (Childress) and horrible people as coaches (Grant). I think Coach Frazier might turn out to be a good guy and a good coach all in one.

Question to all you Frazier haters-in your first year on the job did you get everything right? If so then you have the right to be critical. Give Coach Frazier his 3 years and then reevaluate.

Problem is Leslie is not getting paid as a head coach to be a nice guy which he certainly is, but as a head coach he is certainly not.

Just food for thought. If Frazier had been coach, when we brought Moss back, the last time, we might still have a motivated Moss, playing for the Vikes.

He will be gone by December. Listen to the man talk. There's nothing there.
