Frazier Comfortable If Berger Has To Fill In For Sullivan

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 21, 2011 – 1:58 pm

On September 12 the Vikings made a roster move that caught little attention, but is now a fairly significant factor in the Vikings upcoming game against the Green Bay Packers. One day after their first game of the regular season, the Vikings waived backup C Jon Cooper and filled his roster spot by signing C Joe Berger.

Berger hasn’t seen much of the field to this point, but that could change on Sunday because starting C John Sullivan did not practice all week and has been listed as doubtful for the game on Sunday due to a concussion suffered in last Sunday night’s loss to the Chicago Bears.

If the Vikings sit Sullivan on Sunday and start their #2 center, Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier sounds confident that Berger can get the job done.

“If it turns out that he is going to have to start he is going to have to play well for us,” Frazier said. “We talked about it this morning in our team meeting; as long as he doesn’t feel like the pressure of the world is on his shoulders, and that he has to do anything but his job, he is going to be fine.

“He has prepared well this week in practice, he has prepared well all along, and he is a smart and tough guy.  He knows our offense and he is excited about this opportunity and I think he will play well.”

Berger measures in at 6-5, 315 pounds and is a 7-year veteran out of Michigan Tech. He’s had 2 stints with the Miami Dolphins and a stop with the Dallas Cowboys in between during his NFL career, and now in Minnesota he might have a chance to make his 21st start. Berger started 14 games for the Dolphins last year and 6 the year before that.

The Vikings saw Berger as a player with good size and experience, which is why they signed him and waived Cooper. Berger also has some position flexibility because he can play guard if needed.

“A little bit of both,” Frazier responded when asked if Berger was added because of his size and experience advantage over Cooper, “along with the factor of the number of starts he had at center, along with playing at guard, but the bigger body definitely made a difference. He is a bright guy who has had some success and it looks like he will get an opportunity this Sunday.”

    That “celebration” that Rodgers performs is actually a sign to Clay Matthews indicating “After the game you get on your knees and I’ll part your hair if it gets in the way”.

    I LOVE the fact that the fudge packers are highly favored to win this game! The VIKES have, so far, not played up to their ability and I am hoping that this is THE GAME the team gets it together. Allen has a chance to break a long standing record and I think he”ll play at his highest level. Ponder has a chance to start his NFL career in a way that will be legendary. I’ve been a fan for 47 yrs. I have never been so excited about a Viking game in my life (except the 4 Super-Bowls of course). this may be one we talk about for a long time!!!! Skol VIKES!!!

    Could not be happier that Ponder is starting( even though it is not a rebuilding year at 1-5) but how about a few other guys to. Let this year go and start theyoung guys if they play good we will do better and if not you will know what you have and cut them and draft smart next year. I mean board hand Johnson is starting who likes to stay out till 2 AM and drink. Burger is starting at center who has been on 3 or 4 teams when you have Fusco who looked great in preseason and is the future. You have EJ who is having knee problems but they do not slide his brother over and get Emerson Griffen on the field. Griffin are corner gets beat on ever long pass but Sherels, Allen and Burton sit on the bench. The talent Joe Webb stand on the side line and even with McBads bad play Webb isn’t the number 2 QB. Toby also stands on the side line I know we have AP but how about making him a full back. You still have AP, Harvin, Rudolp, Allen Griffen and a few others in there prime. Will you waste next year to by leaving in your average players and not looking at the young players to get them game experience this year. Ya I am frustrated but have purple blood thru and thru.

    McBad acually said this to Pam Oliver: (But he CANNOT, for the life of him, understand why he lost his job with so much blame to go around for the Vikings’ 1-5 start. Nonetheless, the 34-year-old veteran on his third team in as many seasons is not about to let what he sees only as a temporary setback ruin his football future.) Ya in 1 sentence McBad says he is on his 3rd team. Knok knok pudin head that should tell you something. Watch the film you trow at the receivers feet when there 10 yards away or they have to make a diving effort to catch it. O ya way off target to many times. Can’t excape the rush, and no desire but to cash your $5,000,000 check. Then if Ponder gets hurt they want to put McBad in. Are you kidding me? All the Vikings talk about is how talented Webb is (do they mean on the bench) but he is not the second QB. Please get him a few more packages ang get him the reps in Practice behind Ponder so he is ready. Wkeup this is the future starting Sunday and please do not stop with changing QB only. We are faithful fans if We see a real effort on making the team better and not sticking with the status quo we will still support you. Frustratation with not starting the future now so next year these young players have games under there belt.
    O ya I just watch the NFL show and McBad said he has a lot of football left in him. He ment to say He has a lot of really bad football left in him. It is time for McBad to ride off in the Sunset !!!!

    CB- Sherels … might be our best CB in this game and thats scary considering hes only seen action at corner in 2 games and now will be on the field battling the best pa-ssing game in the NFL

    S- Abdullah … Average
    S-TJohnson … Has dropped 2 picks and missed countless tackles already this season, one of the worst players on our roster

    I am now with drawing my victory prediction … Vikings lose but Ponder will play well and the offense will be effective

    Rodgers make our defense look pee wee …

    @Meekay: That’s what I’ve been saying, same with raymond and sherels, Frazier seems to be giving our secondary the ole McJoke “Hope and pray” instead of actually changing personnel, he did say raymond would dress for this game though so hopefully that means something, but Griffin just gets embarrassed every single game he needs to be replaced, I understand the Knee stuff and all of that… so give him a year to rest and see what happens, I still don’t think he’s a good CB

Allen has a chance to break a long standing record and I think he”ll play at his highest level. Ponder has a chance to start his NFL career in a way that will be legendary. I’ve been a fan for 47 yrs. I have never been so excited about a Viking game in my life (except the 4 Super-Bowls of course). this may be one we talk about for a long time!!!! Skol VIKES!!!

    Many a blogger would have wanted Joe Webb over Favre last season, if only because he is incredibly mobile. Favre was losing that. Same thing with McNabb.

    Ponder could shock the Packers, mainly because GB doesn’t think it will happen. Some of the Packers are dreaming of personal stats versus the Vikings. Maybe this will open things up for a Vikings victory.

    @Shawn,

    You are right… We need better OLs, DBs, and WRs to contend for a title next year.

    Ted Glover of the Daily Norsemen said the Vikings should have a better secondary than the JETS, if we had DRAFTED the way we should.

    Scout is a tough job according to THE DRAFT, written by Wil Mara. They spend a lot of time on the road. They MUST be shrewd judges of almost good enough talent vs good enough talent.

    Maybe some of our SCOUTS are burned out. The consultants have been working too long and don’t do much of the right thing.

    Then again, the guy pulling the trigger makes the decisions on whether we pick a QB, RB, TE, or the areas where we N E E D H E L P.

    HOW ANY FOOL COULD NOT DRAFT OLs and DBs last year is beyond me ! ! !
    (And our free agent decisions were bad too, although not as glaring as the ones with DBs and OLs)

    RIDICULOUS. Any two year old could have done better!!!

    @Shawn,

    I don’t think you ever disagreed with me. We had a slightly different approach towards getting it done.

    If the Vikings keep losing, ALL the fans will be calling for change in the front office. I don’t know if it’s be Brzezinski, or one of the other VPs. Frazier will continue to feel heat, unfortunately. I don’t know how much he has had to do with the 2003-2007 draft debacle.

    There could be a real moron involved according to THE DRAFT, written by Wil Mara. There have been cases of a dominant personality who is feared and hated by others in an organization. UNFORTUNATELY SOMETIMES THESE PEOPLE HAVE ALL THE POWER.

    2- Ced Griffen … Was never the best CB in the league but was pretty good coming off back to back knee injuries = no problem ?

    3- Chris Cook … rookie season plagued with knee injuries and pulls a gun on someone = sure thing above average intelligence ?

    4- Asher Allen … Young 5’9″ corner who gives up a ton of completions = no worries ?

    5- Marcus Sherels … found this guy playing street ball = should step right in ?

    6- Brandon Burton … Rookie 5th round pick = were set ?

    I think he could be a good QB too and I thought they should give him the start and draft needs elsewhere, but since they didn’t and they are clearly not going to give him the try at QB I think he should be put to wide receiver. I don’t know that any other teams will give him a chance either with the little bit he’s put on tape in preseason. If he really committed, I think he could be a great WR, but I know he really wants to be QB, so you’re right it will depend on his mindset/attitude.

    chris cook is an idiot. He is pretty much the best corner the vikings have right now. He does have potential, but the vikings should drop him down and trade him in the offseason for whatever draft pick they can get. There must be a team that would be willing to take a chance on a 24 year old that has proven himself on tape.

    This is really going to hurt, hopefully young CB’s can step up.

    I just got home and see all the blogs on Cook, that’s just great. What’s the matter with these guys?? The remaining players are gonna have a tough game. Maybe the should collect their paychecks AFTER the game and be paid on an incentive program. D O U C H E B A G S

    Chris Cook’s alleged behavior – if true – must not be condoned.

    For Vikings Nation, the healthiest thing we can all do is to TOTALLY IGNORE him! We simply refuse to pay attention to a player who has “simply refused to pay attention” to his own team, his community, but most of all, to his own growth as an individual.

    Do you need help, Chris? THEN GET IT NOW !! THIS IS YOUR CAREER CALLING! THIS IS YOUR FAMILY CALLING! THIS IS YOUR COMMUNITY CALLING! THESE ARE YOUR TEAM MATES CALLING!

    AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR THE CALLS, CHRIS, THEN DO US ALL A FAVOR, AND WALK AWAY FROM THE $$,$$$,$$$.00 !

    I truly believe that now, more than ever, we need to try the no-huddle!

    1. It keeps the ball out of Roger’s hands, while the Vikings play ball control & eat up the clock.

    2. It considerably helps our depleted O-line by systematically wearing out their D-line.

    3. It not only keeps Rogers off the field, but also keeps our Corners off the field.

    4. When our D is on the field, we’ll be able to use a 3-deep coverage zone with a “tight net” & rely on our rush with various blitzes strategically peppered in.

  222. By PAUL M. on Oct 22, 2011 | Reply

    OK, the facts are the facts — our Vikings along with all of us fans have been dealt an ugly hand this season.

    Let’s cut our losses, along with all our “dead weight” — i.e. players & coaches.

    Let’s start to rebuild from what I still truly believe is a powerful, championship quality core of players! I’m talking about Peterson, Harvin, Greenway, Jarrod Allen — & I believe Rudolf & Ponder — with possibly Gearhart, Webb along with some surprises included.

    WE MUST 1st REBUILD OUR O-LINE & OUR D-LINE. THEN OUR DEFENSIVE BACK FIELD. THEN OUR WR’s & LB’s. In that order.

    My opinion.

    On Nov. 1, 2009 — not so long ago in geologic time or even measured by the growth of Jared Allen’s mullet — the Vikings whipped the Packers 38-26 in Green Bay.

    It was a moment of triumph for Brett Favre and the organization that lured him to Minnesota, as he returned to Lambeau Field for the first time and triumphed over his replacement and the people who chose Aaron Rodgers’ promise over Favre’s legendary stature.

    That day, the Vikings beat the Packers for the third consecutive time, then finished 12-4 and came within one Favre pass of advancing to the Super Bowl. At that time, NFL experts thought the Vikings, with their deep cast of dynamic veterans, might have the best overall roster in the league.

    Less than two years later, as the Packers visit the Metrodome on Sunday, Green Bay is the class of the NFL, and the Vikings are spending a second consecutive season embarrassing themselves. The Packers have won 12 in a row, tying a franchise record, and one of those victories came in the Super Bowl. The Vikings have lost 16 of their past 23 and eight of their past 10.

    How did this rivalry change so quickly from a healthy competition to a mismatch?

    The lessons learned from this divergent rivalry are as simplistic as grade-school admonitions, and universal enough to be studied by CEOs.

    The Vikings splurged; the Packers delayed gratification. The Vikings tried to win it all in 2009; the Packers built what could become a dynasty. The Vikings invested in a veteran quarterback edging toward retirement, in Favre; the Packers drafted and developed the best young quarterback in the NFL, in Rodgers.

    The Vikings spent draft picks and copious cash on veteran defensive end Jared Allen; the Packers drafted and developed their star pass rusher, Clay Matthews. The Packers built a deep and talented cast of homegrown receivers; the Vikings invested in Bernard Berrian.

    Ponder may have a decent game, but the pressure Capers is gonna bring to Ponder will defenitly test his skills. Expect full on blitzes with Matthews leading the charge. I bet McNabb wishes he retired after last season. Maybe Ponder is the answer to your guy’s QB whoas. We’ll see. This will be an exciting game. Can’t wait. Good luck to our teams.

    After that some of our fans chose to be surly, at which point cheeshead remarked about that…….so I do not believe I need gla sses, my friend. Just keeping it real.

    It isn’t the roster that is the problem with the Vikings. It never really is. They never make proper coaching decisions. Tomlin left and won a Super Bowl. Billick left and won a Super Bowl. Dungy left and won a Super Bowl. Get the picture.

    Clearly, sportsmanship is in decline when you have 2 NFL coaches who nearly come to blows after a game and some of the idiotic sports pundits solution is to get rid of the handshake after each game. WTF
    This is a game, a contest, At the end of the contest, one contestant wins, one loses. The handshake symbolizes a congratulations and shows repect for your opponent and for the contest itself. Sportsmanship is when one can win without boasting and lose without complaining. Something we could all learn from.

    Just saying, I am suspicious of his motives. To attack Canada? What has that to do with the rivalry? I was practically born in Canada– a few minutes from the border in New York state– that was out of line– if he was a class act, even in anger, he would have kept the nasty remarks focused on the game, not nationalities.

    While I agree they have made poor decisions on coaching, it IS a lack of talent in some areas. Tell me that our RT, RG, LT, CBs, Ss would start for any team above .500. We need talent there…. I thought Cook might turn out to be something at CB… but if he can’t keep his fists off his old lady, he needs to find another job… like making license plates.

    I agree about cutting the deadweight and the guys you’ve selected to keep I agree with, with the addition of a few more. I disagree that our D-Line is a priority, though. We could use a DT, for sure, but Allen, Robison, and Williams are still good players. O-Line and DBs first priority…. with CBs a must. Winfield and Griffen are old, and Allen is horrible. Cook looks like a felon.

    At this point, I think DB is our most glaring shortfall. You can shore up the O Line with TEs and RBs chipping…. DBs are on their own.

    Ageed, Shawn. With Cook out, we don’t have a chance to even make a game out of it. We don’t really have an offensive identity because of weak line play against a strong 3-4 defense. Our D Line doesn’t get much push up the middle at this point, which will give Rodgers a nice pocket to camp in to pick apart our deplorable zone played by sub par DBs. I will be surprised if we keep it within 2 scores….

    Plug in that old electric table football game and watch our secondary HUSTLE!!!!

    GREAT IDEA ROCK!!!!! BERRIAN AT CORNER!!!! Well… he won’t come off his own route to go after a misthrown ball, I’d hate to see what kind of cover skills he has… The basic idea might have some serious merit, though. They had all those good handed WRs in camp… might be worth calling them in to see if they can cover… we already know that Asher Allen can’t.

    Yeah, Nova, but it wouldn’t look any different than what we see on TV. Moving really fast… in circles with no real purpose…. :)

    Shawn…

    Pffft… if we win the toss, we might still be in it at halftime…

    Ok, probably not.

    They should put the mv logo on back middle of the metrodome!

    Being completely serious, which you guys know is completely out of character for me, the only chance we have is to put Rodgers out of this game early.

    Whats with the helmet and uniform commentary? :)

    Kind of like rearranging deckchairs on the Titanic… LOL

    I remember how unsatisfying and stupidly directionless that game was……..it never lived up to the packaging and expectations…..wait…….this beloved childhood toy just gave us a primer for our current team……….

    That will be The Monday Morning Mailbag topic…unless Jared gets a sack.

    Nova… never going to happen without getting someone suspended, or at least heavily fined. Rodgers gets rid of the ball too quickly for our guys to get to him. MAYBE if someone shakes loose on a blitz we might clean him out, but I don’t really wanna see the guy get hurt. Well, not hurt BAD :)

    He deserves it, Woody. Every time I see his commercials, I hurt.

    I think Ponder will make our offense a lot better and might even keep us in the game. and my plan for the game is similar to the coaches plan for the season.

    remeber their plan … keep your fingers crossed

    Sanchez just gave up a quick pick-6. My God he is garbage.

    My bad, it was a fumble….Sanchez still sucks.

    it all makes sense now to why. I really have lost all respect for McNabb. A huge disgrace to the Vikings. I just hope Ponder can clean up this mess.

  330. By NovaScotiaVike on Oct 23, 2011 | Reply

    Animal26….It does make sense now, McNabb’s accountant said “one more gig and you are good to go”. Why not get in touch with your old buddy Frazier?..Disgusting.

    Nova, please tell me again what Rodger’s signal on the field means……….

  332. By NovaScotiaVike on Oct 23, 2011 | Reply

    It means he’s a “gunslinger” and Matthews is “pistol-whipped”.

    Look closely today, Oz. I guarantee Matthews doesn’t have a crewcut, if you know what I mean.

    Oz, Just keep your fingers crossed. I need a total of 48 today for 2 LARGE. If it turns out under, I pity any Packer fans on here later.

    I was not working for Boeing in 2008, try some time earlier then that my friend shawn, Comrade.

    Shawn I was working for Boeing in the 1980′s U FU. Your Union leaders that were the reason for the strike told me, Boeing was out of parts and the union wanted them bonuses to get extra funds in their coppers, know something before you speak @ss. This has nothing to do with your hate! It has to do with the truth, even if U do not like it my man. Get on your meds and shut up you Union loser! Because of them like U my man, there are teachers on the job because of time on the job, not because they can teach! Because of people like you, we have players who cannot play on the job and we cannot get rid of them even if we want to. You do not know me but you can hate me because of my view are different from yours.

    Once more I will say, God bless you my man and God bless you all!!!
