Does anyone else see it-they are starting to use excuses. Instead of excuses start making plays.

All Frazier has to do is look in the mirror. He is a horrible coach who lacks enthusiasm, discipline and imagination and PRO football know-how. His "coaches" (using the term LIGHTLY) are the same. If he thinks he is Bud Grant with his stoicism, he is NOT. He might be a nice guy, but someone once said "nice guys finish last".

Frazier said it all, "I don't Know". It's his job to hold players accountable for how they play and his assistant on how they coach. This team is so predictable on offense and defense, that they have little chance at either.

The Charlie Johnson gets away with holding on every other play... The reality of the situation is that the Vikings just aren't very good. People can blame the penalties all they want but they were outplayed by a team without any dynamic playmakers and without several of their better players playing. Like it or not this is one of the 5 or 6 worst teams in the NFL.

COACH - HOLD YOUR PLAYERS ACCOUNTABLE! Stop making excuses! Those 15 yard penalties lost us the game. Show some emotion on the field, Your players will feed off of it. The game was as dead as your expression!!

"Frazier shrugged with a blank stare" That's a big part of the problem,by far most of it.

I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt (Frazier that is) but so far he is the same as last year. So predictable on calls, conservative all the time. He never challenges his players. Dull, boring and will be at the bottom yet again unless he does something. Coach do you ever read anything or see this as a problem ???? WAKE UP!!

I would have the player that made the penalty run laps around the edge of stadium so the fans can yell at them as they go by. Maybe after enough humiliation they would try harder.
