Vikings Relieve Childress, Name Frazier Interim Head Coach

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 22, 2010 – 11:46 am

The Vikings announced today that they have relieved Brad Childress of his duties and have named Leslie Frazier the interim head coach. Childress was hired in 2006 and finishes his Vikings tenure with a 39-35 (.527) regular season record – including back-to-back division titles – and a 1-2 mark in the postseason.

Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and Frazier will address the media at 3 p.m. CT Monday at Winter Park.

Frazier was originally hired by the Vikings before the 2007 season as defensive coordinator to replace Mike Tomlin, who left the team to take the head coaching job in Pittsburgh. The Vikings promoted Frazier to assistant head coach/defensive coordinator before the 2008 season. Frazier’s defenses have been stout against the run and improving against the pass since ’07. They led the NFL in 2009 with 48 sacks and the team ranks 3rd in the NFL with 131 sacks since ’07.

With the unique perspective of a Super Bowl winner as a player and coach, Frazier has a proven track record of success. Hist first title came as a starting CB with the 1985 Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XX and he also won a title as a member of Tony Dungy’s staff in Indianapolis.

The 2010 season is Frazier’s 4th with the Vikings, his 12th in the NFL and his 23rd overall in coaching.

Frazier’s Background
Player:
1977-80 – Alcorn State (DB)
1981-86 – Chicago Bears (DB)

Coach:
1988-96 – Trinity International University
1997-98 – University of Illinois
1999-02 – Philadelphia Eagles
2003-04 – Cincinnati Bengals
2005-06 – Indianapolis Colts
2007-Present – Minnesota Vikings

    T-Jack? get a grip.

    Did you happen to see how many INT’s the Manning brothers had yesterday? P. Manning’s game ending INT?

    Favre is NOT the problem.

    Childress should have been gone weeks ago.

    Just in, Favre says “Under new management we have a real shot at the Super Bowl next year and I am onboard!” Apparently they are going to rest him for the rest of the year and give him a oil change, exchange his hips, ankles and knees. He will be good to go next year…

    Not to rain on the “Chili is finally fired” parade but hopefully they find a better head coach by next season. Although it is too late for this year, but is anyone concerned that the team has been put into the hands of another coach that has completely dropped the ball? A defensive coach that while having excellant players cannot defend. Frazier is not the solution that the Vikings so desperately need.

    I would not make that prediction just yet. Two things are going to get in the way. 1. The vikings do not play very well on the road and 2. the game is on natural grass. A coaching change was the only thing made so far. We still have a bunch of under achieving overrated players to deal with. I want to see a win but do not count the chickens just yet.

    Sucks for Childress but I’m sure he’ll sit very comfortably on that 14 million. Frazier has the potential to try and glue this team back together. But even if we lose every game for the rest of the season, try not to blame Frazier for it. This team has been struggling since pre-season.

    Favre was ranked the 20th Best NFL player of all time and is a first ballot Hall of Famer, he played better than 31 of 32 quarterbacks last year at 40 years old. This year, he hasn’t had the protection this year or the receivers playing like they should this year. Dropped ball s, tipped ball s, blitzers getting through, tackles missing blocks, the list goes on and on this year!!

    With Frazier as “The Coach” maybe we can get someone to coach our defense better. They had it last year but lost all of their talent. Why??? It will be interesting to see if they play better like the Cowboys did for their new coach. The players should always play well. I wish this would have come sooner, if we play better. Good luck!

    How do you fix the protection? You try moving guys around, give second stringers a chance if Loadholt & Mckinney don’t perform. You run more drills with blitzing attacks and doubling up. That’s how you fix those problems.

    Too bad Moss was waived. That is when I fully lost respect for Childress.

    Is the season over? If yes, I would love to see what Joe Webb can do for the rest of the season. He is young, but 6 games could help out alot.

    If they actually think they have a chance at the playoffs, without any home games! You have to start Favre and see if the O Line will step up a little more.

    why is there people even trying to defend T-jack….T-jack has had 5 years to develop and he has shown his is no NFL Starting QB…..look at the end of the New England game…he sucked at throwing the ball….any coach would have already released Jackson…i swear jackson is just as bad or even worst then Ryan Leaf….Our QB option is FAVRE OR WEBB NO T-JACK….HE HAD HIS CHANCE FOR 3 YEARS BEFORE FAVRE CAME

  76. By Robins on Nov 22, 2010 | Reply

    Bruce, you are so right, Brett has been great and would have been this year if he had any help. Having no protection has gotten him all of his injuries, and interceptions. For some reason, our receivers can’t catch a ball. Our defense can’t stop anyone so the other team makes lots of points. Most of the interceptions are not his fault. Brett is awesome.

    VAvikefan, More than half thos turnovers were the result of bad protection and receivers not performing. I agree, a mobile QB will give you another option, so what I would do would be shake up the O-line and work with the RB pass protection as well and then start Favre as usual but put in Tjack in the 4th quarter if we are way up in points or if we are way down in points.

    For all of you Joe Webb supporters, i saw Webb in the preseason and if you dislike Tarvaris then you will HATE Joe Webb!..just being honest. Tarvaris hasnt been given a chance to prove anything bcuz we always sit him down at the first sign of trouble, which is no way to develop a qb…meanwhile Lord Favre is allowed to throw pick after pick, fumble after fumble and continue to play. Favre this yr has been worse for us than Tjack EVER was!

  87. By Bruce on Nov 22, 2010 | Reply

    Yes Robins. I know what I’m talking about. I am a retired football coach and I have seen a lot of plays that could have gone the other way if Favre didn’t have a defensive end or a lineman in his face right after taking a 3 step drop. Plus AP as great as he is at pounding the football, has made some mistakes in pass protection and picking up blitzes. The biggest proble is both our tackles, they are TOO big to be tackles in my opinion. They should be guards and not tackles. Tackles have to be more athletic and mobile than guards do. That is why teams draft the left tackle which is your blind side. Loadholt & Mckinney are TOO SLOW for their position!

    The Favre “haters” here are the same ones who were on the bandwagon when it became known the Vikings were trying to get him to wear purple on Sundays. Their comments now are dispicable.

    The Favre detractors are most likely the fattest and out of shape 25 – 30 year olds who couldn’t make their high school J.V. team, even by their senior year at Normandale Community College (if they could even meet the admission standards) . They would consider a minor bruise a major injury and say that they were “forced” to quit playing football forever and declare it a horrible loss to all of ‘Footballdom’. These losers are only legends in their own minds. “Glory Days” is their anthem.

    No matter how it’s disected, bottom line is, Favre is one of the few toughest football players in NFL history.

    Outside of a criminal, how logical and fair is to judge another on one incident or season alone? How many of us could pass that test? C’mon, really? For those of you that answered ‘ME!’, meet me down at lake Harriet, the banks of the Mississippi, or Bloomington Ferry later (your choice), and you can show me that walking on water trick of yours.

    If you’re a true fan then you take the fair and the bad as well, not just the ‘great’.

    Thank you Brett for letting the Vikings share a small part of your NFL legacy. Even in the toughest of seasons, personally and as a team, you never said ‘ I quit’. That should be an example to all of us in our own personal lives.

    Bruce, it’s tempting to agree with you on the tackles. But guards have to be quick as well. In fact, I would think that the guards would have to be quicker than the tackles. I would like to see an off-season running program for our linemen. Start with distance running ( 2 mile runs in February!!!). Then in April you can begin to run more short sprints (100s, and 40s). Then, they will be ready for specific line training.

    How many more times do the rest of us have to watch Jackson hand the ball off or throw bricks in the general area of his relief receiver without even bothering to look down field first to check his other receivers, before the “We have to give T. Jack ample time to prove himself” crowd is convinced he is not a contender at quarterback?

    Do you want to give him another 5 years? Another 10 years?

    I hope none of the Jackson supporters own their own businesses or are executives for any business, because their business sense is non-existent. My guess is most of them are “touchy – feely” bleeding heart “life time students”.

    NOT true, Bruce, Guards are the pulling lineman, THEY are the most agile and need to be to pull around the opposite ends…. Tackles have head to head, and push outside on end pressure, keeping the “pocket” intact. Guards are the mobile athletes, NOT tackles.

    You guys need to get off Brett’s jock strap. Seriously… He’s been playing horrible. Tjack has never played as horrible as brett but everyone is quick to start criticizing tjack. Sure brett isn’t all to blame for his poor play but the majority of it is his fault. First it was the receivers. We brought in moss. Still had little to no effect and we still lost. Now its the oline? The oline hasnt been doing a stellar job but they’ve given him enough time to make good throws. What happened last game? He overthrew rice, overthrew camarillo, and he overthrew gerhart on 4th down. For some reason, he’s not making the throws he usually would… The reason why he is the second most hit in the NFL is because he can’t move. If he could move, he could probably avoid 1-2 hits per game. The oline isnt the only to blame. Protection could be better but this team can’t play perfect in every aspect of the game. You guys need to get that through your heads.

    1. There are 52 other members of the team that is equally responsible for doing their job.

    2. Favre threw TOO MANY picks those are points off the board we are 3-7 and Favre has started all the games so can you really still conclude that he givs us the best chance to win?

    Bottom line is hey it didn’t work nobody mad at Favre you can’t be mad at him for getting on that field at 41 taking hits from 20 year olds I applaud that wholeheartedly a legend among legends is Favre but time is up as a man I know that man pride…LOL!!..but its time to go it didn’t work out such is life you gave it a try its better to have found out that it didn’t work by trying than to not have tried.

    About time but this is a double edged sword. Analysis that I have heard was that Favre was going to pack it in if Childress stayed and now he is going to play out the string the rest of the season. Favre is one of the all time greats of the leauge but like most of the great ones he played one too many years. We need to be honest about the talent level of the team, Harvin and AP are studs and could start for anyone, I challenge anyone to point out any of the other 19 starters who are in the top 10 or even the atop 15 in the leauge at their position. We have pretty much a collection of average or slightly above average NFL players that meshed nicely last year.

    Hey Bruce, you ever hear the term “pulling guard”? That is scheme and EVERY team in history has run the “couter” or “counter tre” – the GUARD is the guy who flies and leads the counter lead block, tackles push. On pass blocking they have outward pusch ONLY, so they need feet ane technique, NOT speed. THAT is fact, You can research any football team, but guards are your agile and “fast” linemen for a very good reason – scheme makes that the critical slot as pulling tackles is TOO far for a guy to “flip” to other side to lead block on counter… Guard’s job. I understand your view, but that is not strategy, i tis assumption only. I am talking football doctrine – pulling guard is the running lineman.

    If you watch the majority of the plays, the tackles are doing the more awkward moves while trying to stay with their block. That is precisely why teams draft the left tackle for the blind side. And that is why tackles fail the most over guards in basic protection. It’s a harder job.

    I’m not trying to make it personal. It just really annoys me when someone refuses to admit the truth. It bugs me that just because of Brett’s status as a future HOF, he’s untouchable. Nothing is his fault. Jenn sterger is a h0 because brett tried to get with her. It’s not brett’s fault that he cheated on his wife. If jenn sterger wasn’t so hot and if she wasn’t a h0, brett would’ve remained faithful to his wife. Its the people around him. Its not him. His recievers can’t get open. The oline can’t block. Toby wasn’t in the right spot to catch the ball when brett overthrew the pass to him. Everyone around him aren’t good enough. How many more excuses are you going to make up for him? I bet if you ask him, he will tell admit that yeah, he has played poorly this year and it is no one else’s fault but his for his poor play.

    When I’m watching the game and I see a throw that Favre makes where he completly missed the throw or he should have saw the saftie closing in, I get upset with that. But I also get upset with Favre being hurried all the time and not having the time he should have that most QBs get in the league. And when I see a receiver drop a easy catch or the ball goes through their hands, that upsets me as well. I look at the performance of ALL the players.

    To all the Favre-apologists, look: I respect the man and do not question his heart or his talent. But he is just plain making *bad* decisions this season. He’s trying to win games singlehandedly, and that’s stupid. He’s acting desparate, playing through probably a lot more pain than he admits to, and it’s affecting his decisions and accuracy. Is he getting good protection? NO WAY. But he also can’t get rid of the ball quickly, like he could last year. Teams are overloading the line, stacking the box, bringing blitzes, etc, because his accuracy AND our receivers’ performance is suspect. He and the receivers can’t connect RELIABLY (which would cause opposing Ds to back off a bit. How many dropped screens, and other short throws have we seen? So teams keep bringing it. They know Favre can’t move around. That really simplifies their job and reduces the # of possibilities they need to consider.

    So (as much as I never thought I’d say it back in ’08) put TJack on the field for crying out loud! Maybe he’s improved, maybe not, but we GOT him, so give him a shot!!

    1) I seriously doubt he’d put up worse numbers than Favre! (who’s averaging what? ~1TD, 2+ Turnovers Per game!!??)

    2) If he DOES do worse than that over a couple games, THEN AT LEAST WE’LL KNOW FOR SURE!! No more questions, Right? Vikes got nothing to lose at this point, and then the “Way Ahead” will be clear: Give WEbb a shot, then head into the Offseason KNOWING we need to Trade/Draft the BEST QB we can get.

    Yesss finally some command from the front office, if the players dont believe in their leader they will never be able to believe in themselves as a team, Frazier is the best chance for this team and for everyone fighting about favre’s ints it matter NOT one bit how they came no one cares how the saints won the superbowl just that they did in the end its an INT thrown by Brett Favre if we are going to praise him for all his accomplishments last year then it must be the same way when he is performing like this. Last year all you heard was brett favre magic not amazing catches by Sidney Percy Shiancoe but i am a very big Favre fan and though one can always find a reason not to pin it on Favre its just part of the game. This change at coach is the first and biggest step toward a superbowl we have two Very capable QB it would be stupid of us to not see how Tavaris has developed under Favre and Webb is a superstar waiting to happen if you look at his delivery speed size he will be unstoppable once he has some experience. I hate how everyone believes the only way Favre can help is if he is on the field teaching the QBs should be half the reason you bring him in to see how a HOF Quarterback operates. He could offer great insight to a new offense and the other quarterbacks which would be considerably benificial.

Even if she didn’t go(or maybe she did who knows?) that’s considered cheating to me. We all know what his intentions were. And yes i’ve seen his pressers. I know he does. Maybe you should ask Bruce that question, not me.

    Not only should any team that loses to them fire their head coach (just as Dallas and Minnesota has)…but the WHOLE TEAM should have been fired for such a pitiful performance!

    There isn’t a Pop Warner team in the country that can’t be the sappy Packers right now, underscoring the shame to be known in losing to the Packers.

    First I’d like to give a shout out to Mr. Wilf for finally doing the right thing. Like many others I believe he should have come in and done it the second he heard about Chilly’s decision on Moss, and stopped that drop from becomming official. But now that it’s done, we can look forward to a less bleak future. The move tells me that Ziggi is still committed to keeping the Vikes in MN, and should be enough to convince the guys making the decisions at the capital that he deserves a stadium.

    @Bruce – I agree that the tackles need to be mobile, more nimble on their feet. Shuffling to the side while trying to keep a blitzing defensive lineman in front of you is arguably more difficult than running behind the linemen to block someone head-on (pulling) on the other side of the line.

    Don’t forget that it took AP only 8-months to correct the fumbling problem. Just think of how many things that Jackson could have corrected in the last 22 months.

    Brett Farve is getting tired. Lets give him a reason to step of the field and help the team in a higher platform. Make him the head coach and charge him with the rebuilding effort. He knows the game better than most people out there and would be a huge asset if that knowledge could be tapped.

    I don’t think Frazier wants to hear anything about Brett Favre being the eventual coach of this team. I’m sure he would like the “interim” tag removed ASAP.

You better believe that if Peyton or Tom were back there they would be on the IR. This year sickens me but have an ounce of class and thank God for Brett. A good line with a healthy Rice and Moss would have painted a much better scenario. Im just hopeing that the D can get it together soon. If not lets draft some O and D line in the draft…

Tough to win games with a guy who 3 and out’s the offense almost every possession. Short sighted front office have scuttled this team yet again.

    FOR THE RECORD: I think T-Jack sucks too. Put him in, let him show everyone one more time and dump him at season’s end. QB position need addressing. Webb in no better. Running QB’s want to run. Not read/react and throw. Draft a QB with enough pocket presence to read, mobile enough to escape rush, not run. Running QB’s do not win championships. Also putting T-Joke in keeps wins down. Why go 9-7 and barely miss playoffs, 5-11 gets much better draft position. Swallow pride for this season (it’s over anyway). Play smart for draft position to help teams future. Hard pill to swallow for fan, needs to happen.

    Vikings, This season was a mess from the start,from Farve coming in late to work with his receivers to Rice being injured.To losing our important 3rd down possession RB,Chester Taylor. If anybody doesn’t see our problems on third down and the respect other teams had to give his being on the field then they just havn’t been watching the same team that played last year.Injuries, a part of the game -but they really did hurt the offense this year and if anybody doesn’t think Farve isnt worthy to stay our quarterback let them stand out there and get pounded every game .the guy has heart ! Never say he doesn’t! Lets move forward and start a new history of PURPLEPRIDE!!!

    To Longsuffering fan:
    You have no real concept of that meaning. Im a Cub fan and have endured a life time of pain. Being a Vike fan has not been easy but nothing compared to being a Cub fan. My grandma was a cub fan( born 1900 passed in 2000) . She worked at Wrigley in the press boothfor 55 years. She saw one World Series 1945. It was the war year. Yup, WW11. Lou Gerig and other great players were serving their country. Anywho, the Flubs lost. I guess what im trying to say is you do not have the right to call yourself longsuffering cuz you know, you’re NOT. Now go finish your ba-ba full of shut-up juice, grab your banky, and stick that binky in your word hole ya Jackwagon…

    Brett should retire to save his pride. He can say he tried, but the team was in to bad of a shape to be saved by any one. He should stay around, and teach the young QB some tricks. Become the QB coach and let the young QB play for the team. Do what is best for the team as he always says. Maybe something good can happen. I would think he would be tired of being beaten up by the lack of protection, receivers. AP must be tired of making holes that the line should have made. Hope the new coach can get the boys back on track.

    To George:
    Im in a funky mood. Coming down from the “Chilly Hater Nation Hangover” Sorry to insult you. Sounds like you are a man of sound mind and character. Great points about Webbs mindset/ skillset and our future in the draft. As for Longsuffering Fan, I still feel the same about you Furball…

    When one looks into the mirror to see what is there. Will they like what is there, or chose to be deceived by their own site? So I ask what is it Vikings do you see? I think the new coach has the good view. Look forward and learn from the past all things good and bad.

    To DRS,
    Have you been watching reruns of Kung-Foo with David Carradine. Well, if so “may the gentile breeze awaken you to enlightenment Grasshopper”…

    DRS, you really don’t mean “retire”, you mean quit. Well, that’s just not Favre’s style.

    Longsuffering, you’re just upset at how the season has turned out. I will just say I disagree with you, and leave it at that.

    Wiggs, we can have a 9-7 season and still get some good picks. Childress won’t be there to muck it up.

    It’s not Childress’s fault that Favre sucks. The only mistake that Childress made was not benching Favre after he threw his 7th interception. FAVRE SUCKS AND FIRING THE COACH IS NOT GONNA HELP!!!!!!

    @Jake,

    Peterson, Harvin, and Gerhart didn’t get all those yards by themselves. They had HELP.
