Great to hear the Vikes have been proactive on something Denny Green, Mike Tice, and Brad Childress seemed to know little about during their time as coach. Maybe if Childress would have had an official at practices during his time, he would have known that you can only put 11 guys in a huddle. He could have used the entire length his time-out before that play to tell Tahi to stay on the sidelines.

Wow, Frazier just went up a few more notches on my "I just might believe this guy can coach" meter. And Wilf once again proves he's been the best owner the Vikings have had in a long time. Of course all the tickets just went up $1.00 to pay those refs... :/ GO VIKINGS!!

While I still have doubts about Musgrave, Frazier has grown as a coach and is obviously improving on his end. Going forward, his decision making concerning the QB position will determine how far this team can go in the years to come.
