Notes From Frazier Press Conference

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 12, 2011 – 2:23 pm

Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier held his customary day-after-the-game press conference on Monday afternoon and in so doing he provided a quick injury update and then discussed some of the big issues coming out of Sunday’s close 34-28 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Here are a few notes from the press conference…

– Frazier the most significant injury coming out of the game was WR Stephen Burton, who injured the MCL in one of his knees. Burton will not undergo surgery, but the timetable for his rehab and return is such that he wouldn’t be able to make it back before the season concludes. As a result, the Vikings have placed him on the Reserve/Injured list, they’ve elevated Manny Arceneaux from the Practice Squad and Frazier indicated the team may sign another WR to take Arceneaux’s place on the Practice Squad.

– Frazier was optimistic on Adrian Peterson and Christian Ponder being able to play this weekend against the New Orleans Saints. Frazier described Peterson, who is dealing with an ankle injury, as close to being able to play last Sunday and Ponder as “no worse for the wear” after playing into the 3rd quarter against Detroit with his hip injury. Frazier also noted that DE Brian Robison “banged” his knee during the game but was able to finish.

– The 6-point loss on Sunday in Detroit marks the 8th loss of 7 points or fewer for the Vikings this season. That’s a remarkable stat for this Vikings team considering the injuries they’ve had to overcome. With the losses mounting up, it’s also a credit to the leadership on the Vikings coaching staff and in the locker room that the team continues to battle so hard in close games. No one wants to be the loveable losers, but it’s even worse to be the bad team that doesn’t even try hard. The Vikings clearly are not a group that doesn’t fight to the end, and Frazier appreciates that team quality. “As I mentioned before, not a lot of solace when you lose games when you’re battling every week to try to get a win like we are,” Frazier said, “but the fact that they are continuing to fight and not giving up and not make any excuses gives you some hope that we’ll continue to fight each and every week and hopefully eventually get it turned where some of those tough losses end up being victories. Hats off to our players for fighting the way they’re fighting.”

– Detroit’s 2nd TD of the game came on a 57-yard pass to WR Titus Young on a play where Young ran past CB Cedric Griffin and then beat S Jamarca Sanford further down the field to haul in the pass and dash into the end zone. On the play, Griffin’s responsibility is to re-route the WR early, and then to pass the receiver off to the safety. The problem was that Griffin didn’t get a sufficient re-route of Young, which enabled the Matthew Stafford-to-Young hookup and score. Griffin didn’t see much action after that play and Frazier was asked about the situation on Monday. Frazier said Griffin is not “in my dog house” and that the team will discuss the issue and move forward this week with a plan. I don’t expect Frazier will “give up” on Griffin, a player who has come back from severe knee injuries and is a good locker room guy. As Frazier said, the technique of re-routing a WR is something Griffin has executed countless times in the past and it’s likely something he’ll continue to be able to execute for the team going forward.

– The big story of the game for the Vikings is the removal of Ponder in favor of Webb, and then Webb’s subsequent performance and ability to nearly bring the team back to victory. While Frazier has maintained that Ponder is the team’s starter, he’s also acknowledged that the team would prefer to get Webb on the field more frequently because of his play-making ability. The issue right now is that Webb is the backup QB, and his value as the backup QB (which we saw on Sunday in Detroit) is too much to risk by having him on the field frequently. Once Sage Rosenfels, acquired two weeks ago, is more up to speed, then expect to see Webb in a more expanded role on offense. “No question, he is a guy who can create players when there’s nothing there,” Frazier said. “And we’ve got to do more as far as getting him out there and trying to put him in position to make plays, especially when Adrian is not playing and you’re relying so much on Percy. We need all the playmakers on the field that we can get and he is for sure one of our playmakers. It’s something we’ve got to continue to explore. We have some packages that we use sporadically, maybe we’ve got to go a little bit deeper with those packages.”

    The Vikings should give Webb the start against the Saints to give Ponder a little healing time not only that Webb could show the rest of the league what he has. I think the Vikings should make a deal with the Dolphins to get B.Marshall then they can use draft pick’s to fix up there secondary. The Vikings need to start thinking about next season.

    Do we really have to play Ponder against the Saints? If he isn’t 100%, why bother? He may get seriously injured with that hip already being bruised.

    Message to the the Vikings Brass and coaches, Justin Blackmon, please don’t blow it!

    Please get an agressive jump on free-agency as well. Here’s my top five based on our needs.

    2012 Free-Agents For The Vikes:
    OT – Demetrius Bell
    S – LaRon Landry
    CB – Carlos Rogers
    WR – Reggie Wayne
    OG – Ben Grubbs

    Zygi, please get us back on track. I don’t think I can stomach another season like this one.

    I understand they are trying to develop Ponder, but if he is not ready (still too hurt) then I say start Webb. Ponder is suppose to be the future QB & lets face facts…the o-line sucks!!!! No sense in putting Ponder through more abuse to the point that he will not be able to play next season. Webb is fast – he is able to run for his life!!!! And lets also face facts – the saints are dirty players, does not make sense to have the future QB play against them when the o-line will just let him become a bug against the windshield.

    Cedric Griffen needs to be released!! He’s not been the same since suffering 2 MCL’s in his career!! Do him a favor and tell him to retire!!
    Since AP went down, Percy Harvin has taken over as the leader on offense for this team!! Somebody please tell me why he isn’t returning every kick for us!! Devin Hester does it for Chi Town, why not Percy for us Coach Frazier??

    Webb really showed what he’s got last Sunday. I wouldn’t mid giving him at least one of the last three games the starter job. It’d be interesting to look into the Viki’s future and see if Webb is the real deal…

    @61vikings…. Agreed. Griffen is doing anyone good being a locker-room guy. He needs to be an on-the-field guy! Harvin should be returning every kick. Sherels seems to stop his momentum on his first cut and gets buried. He at least catches the ball, but not letting Harvin return is just missed opportunities as he can break free so often. Toby is a brute. Great job Toby. You are a machine!

    Until we fix our OL we will do nothing. Our line is like a swinging gate, and there is never anything that resembles a “pocket” ever! Please! Fix the OL and Peterson, Ponder and Harvin will take care of the rest. Get the kid some time to breathe!

    Offense had looked fine for the last few weeks, but the defense can’t get off the field. We’re going to have to play a perfect game in order to even be able to start thinking about beating the Saints.

  13. By Immureglass on Dec 12, 2011 | Reply

    The reason why they don’t use Percy to return every kick is because besides A.P. Percy’s our biggest playmaker on offense and best WR on the team and the coaches don’t want to risk him getting injured and exhausted. Think about how worn down he would get if returned every kick/punt along with everything else they have him do on the offense. If he gets hurt this team really doesn’t have much of an pass attack.

    I am sorry to say but Loadholt does not look very athletic, especially when he raced after the fumble on the last play Sunday– an agile and athletic player would have gotten that ball. Players like Camarillo are the type we need– no star power but absolute intelligent and all out plays to execute.

    Titus … I was just watching the coaches show on NFL network which stars Brian Billick and Denny Green who just joined the show tonight. Made me think of the good ol days and really upset about this pile we put on the field every Sunday.

    I thought about Fred wanting Denny Green as GM but if I remember right Green was great on the Offensive side but seemed to forget about the defense. Even though that defense was better than this one

    So I had to stop by and rant …

  33. By Shawn on Dec 12, 2011 | Reply

    and no Titus its me … but someone is to blame for this team and I dont believe its the coaches. Frazier unlike Chilly will make a change if he can. Chilly was too hard headed to accept he might be wrong. Frazier brought McNabb in gave him 5 games benched him then cut him. If Chilly was coach Id put money McNabb would still be starting.

  34. By TITANIUM TITUS on Dec 12, 2011 | Reply

    Denny Green was good on offense because of Brian Billick– Billick is a mastermind– he knows the game. That defense in 98 had a lot of interceptions– they had problems with their secondary– hey what’s new? But they were opportunistic and our offense was so overwhelming that our D had an easier time. They had some good D Line. Remember big Jerry Ball? How about Rudd? That D was decent, but that offense could score at will—

    You know sometimes it’s tough to understand why a manager makes the decisions he makes. A lot of the bloggers make sense. Maybe they’ll play Ponder for a quarter or so until it’s obvious he’s not up to standard and we’ll be behind by 21 points and then they’ll put Webb in again. When will we be ahead of the curve?

  37. By Shawn on Dec 12, 2011 | Reply

    O Yea .. and Im sure its easy to be considered a mastermind when you have Cris Carter, Randy Moss, Jake Reed, Robert Smith, and a tough OL with Steussie, McDaniel, Birk, David Dixon and the late great Korey Stringer

    WOW REMEMBER THAT OL ???????

    That OL was almost as good as the one right b4 it with Gary Zimmerman , McDaniel, Kirk Lowdermilk, cant remeber the right guard but Tim Irwin was the other tackle

    WOW We were good when we had an OL

  39. By TITANIUM TITUS on Dec 12, 2011 | Reply

    I remember Madden saying that was the best O Line in all of football. And that is why Cunnigham had time to throw to Carter, Moss, Reed–and why Leroy Hoard and Smith ran all over defenses. David Palmer scrambling around– a bit like Harvin, but Harvin is better than Palmer. Heck, with Harvin and AP, a great O Line would make us invincible.

    Exactly … I think Ponder is good enough. AP and Harvin behind a great OL ???

    BAROOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Seahawks are desperate for a good new QB. Trade the high first for their 12th, take Reiff, Martin or the best available OT, then a guard in rd 2, then a WR in Seattle’s spot, rd 2. SlowHold to reserve, Love to RT. This fixes most of the offensive holes in one draft.

  51. By Parody on Dec 12, 2011 | Reply

    That’s a nice idea Jimbo, but we need to address the defensive holes in the draft too. I think the players we have at WR will be decent enough for Ponder to work things out if he is given time in the pocket. We should be able to get a good CB in the second round rather than a WR.

    The value of the #2 or #3 draft pick is high enough where it should be worth a #3 and/or #4 from the Seahawks as well. These can be used on safeties, OLBs and interior linemen to finish the patchwork.

    @ Shawn, I wouldn’t fire Phil Loadholt, because he is still young and he is just a monster. Some say he is the best runblocker in the leauge. That’s the reason why I would switch him to guard next year. Move Charlie Johnson to RT after drafting the best available LT.

  58. By Rogerthevikefan on Dec 13, 2011 | Reply

    C. Johnson is CR @P that is why the Colts let him walk. He only looked good because Peyton gets that rid of the b@ ll so fast. Loadholt can run block but is to big to play RG he would crush the Center or RT. I like the idea of trading back to the Seachickens they likely will target Barkley. Could end up with a extra 2nd and 3rd or 4th. Then draft LT Riley Rieff 1st round. RG Keleci Osemele in the 2nd. Other 2nd CB Stephen Gilmore or Janoris Jenkins(Pothead so falls). 3rd round DT Jared Crick(injury so falls). Other 3rd OT Andrew Datko(injury so falls). 4th round WR B.J. Cunningham. Other 4th CB Cliff Harris(jack @S $ so falls). Love could play LG, RG, or RT if needed and Fusco can battle Sully to be the Center.

    Althought there is definately going to be changes with the players, I don’t see there being any changes with the front office or coaching staff. That is unless Coach Frazier wants to make changes. I don’t see a General Manager at the end of this year. They don’t want to play Childress’s and Frazier’s salary if they fired Frazier, so they aren’t going to hire a GM and have another on the payroll. Sorry guys.

    Northwoods– seems like the score at will is working for Green Bay quite nicely. Looks like they will be back in the Superbowl for a second consecutive year, unless Rodgers gets hurts. Of course a strong defense is good, but the best defense is a good offense that eats the clock and keeps the opposing offense off the field– that is perfect defense because it keeps the other team at zero. We get a great O Line in place and then let AP and Toby run all day.

And the Question of the day is…….where do I get my Manny Jersey? What is his number, because I am sure I will have to find him on the sidelines somewhere…….isn’t that where all of our playmakers are kept? “Break Glass in case of Blowout!” Blowout comin’ to town in the form of D Brees (who I almost cried over when we let him go to NO in Free Agency years ago) – Bad shoulder I think was our reasoning, and who did we bring in?

    The 2012 draft bolds well for the Vikes,with cornerbacks,tackles,receivers and linebackers being at their best depth.It looks like Kalil is going to stay at U.S.C. for his senior season.If we are to pick 3rd we should take Claiborne the corner from L.S.U.,or we should try to trade down maybe with the patriots for their two 1st rounders, plus an additional 3rd. Dre’ Patrick out of ‘Bama and Reilly Reiff the tackle from Iowa would be two great rookies for 2012 and are slated for late in the first round…but what this team really needs… is a proven G.M.

    Webb should be in every once in awhile when you need to make some good plays, or put Ponder in on 3rd and 4th downs, because he can pass well, Webb is the one that can run. The detroit game they missed a bad face mask, but i guess it happens, the reffs cant see everything. No-affence to frazier you should hsve lined up in shot-gun formation when you seen they had every one blitzing. I guess it is advice for the next time, you learn from the mistakes.

    #1 problem… the defensive secondary
    #2 problem… the offensive line
    #3 problem… need a true deep threat receiver

    If the vikings play the draft and free agency right, they may fix all three of those issues. It is possible the vikings could be back on top of the North next year if they have a good offseason.

    The secondary is substandard and hurts the whole team. The O-line needs a serious overhaul.The coaches and Ponder deserve more time. Harvin, AP, Chad, Jared are A+, Gebhart, Rudolph and Mckinnie are B+, the rest are D or less. We need a good draft and need some good free agents. I am optimistic.

    I think you may be right, JOE CAN THROW!!!

    I dare say old chap, this fellow SPIELMAN is not using common sense during the
    drafting of those big fellas!!!

    It is quite apparent that SPIELMAN is not doing his job!!

    It is evident that SPIELMAN must be relieved of his position!!

    I meant Hutch is a B+;, not Mckinnie. OK Gebhart goes to A-.

    Oh ya, Kevin Williams is an A-, thanks for the correction. Not much disagreement on my other grades???

    Correction: Gerhart is the correct spelling.

    Very , very good. Straight up the gut runner. With 3 top running backs and a total runner in Joe, I think we all know where we need help the most.

    @Fredrick Jones and the Host of Fan Blogers:

    Percy Harvin is one of the most outstanding young players to get to the Vikings roster. He’s Strong can shrug off tacklers and run like a plow horse he has what it takes to win and his attitude shows it. These Things also apply to All-Day Adrain Peterson,We also need to put Joe Webb in at QB for the rest of the season so then the coaches have a good look at his talents.
    But if we are going to win in 2012 we need to do the things that follow so we can draft an awesome list of players in 2012 but we have to work fast and it’s up to the fans that are at the few remaining home games.
    We need to Stand united and present a petition to the Wilf Family with a list of Good GM candidates and head coaching candidates to even make them listen to reason you need at least 30,000 to 50,000 names of fans that want change within the organization. then maybe the Wilf Family would really heed the Fans but just Blogging it won’t help but you guys are true Fans just like I am, Distribute the petition around the stadium during the last homes games and I’ll give you my permission to sign my name to it just let me know in a blog reponse Fredrick, DRS, or Titanium Titus for I am a die hard Vike Fan of 50 years. Here is my list Jon Gruden,Steve Marriucci, Denny Green Tony Dungy or Brian Billick for GM Chip Kelly Oregon Ducks any of these Coaches could fix the Vikings team.
    Lets get on with giving the Wilf Family the best list of cadidates as possible to choose from.

    The one and only PuckerTrucker!!!!!!!!!!Skol Fans.
