Frazier Says “So Far, So Good” On Peterson’s Rehab

Posted by Mike Wobschall on April 4, 2012 – 4:59 am

This should come as no surprise to anyone who knows Adrian Peterson or has even observed his career with the Vikings, but the superstar RB is doing well in his recovery from two torn knee ligaments suffered back on December 24.

So far, so good,” Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier said on Tuesday, according to the Star Tribune’s Dan Wiederer, who spoke to Frazier at a Tony Dungy speaking function in Edina.

Wiederer writes that the Vikings were impressed with Peterson last week when he began running on land at Winter Park for the first time, and that Peterson “continues to amaze the Vikings staff with his ambition.”

While desire and determination have never been lacking for Peterson when it comes to football and doing whatever it takes to be the best, ligaments – especially in the knee – can be fickle when on the mend. That’s why the optimism coming from Frazier on Tuesday and Vikings GM Rick Spielman last week should be viewed as such good news.

    GDP…I can see why you like OLB Sean Spence….The young man is fast…And seems to have great gap discipline…With what he lacks in size…Spence well makes up for in quickness and sure tackling…

    Was just thinking what the Vikings defense would look like…If they used the 3~4 defense a little on occasion…If they played E Henderson and McClellin on the inside…And had Greenway and Spence playing the outside positions ???….That would be one h3ll of a LB core !!…

    Vikings Team Report

    Updated: April 04, 2012 03:33 EST

    INSIDE SLANT

    The Vikings are 9-23 since losing to the Saints in the NFC Championship Game in January of 2010. It’s been a painful free-fall that the team’s hierarchy doesn’t want to see repeated should the Vikings claw their way back to the top.

    So, with that in mind, ownership is buying into the patient rebuilding plan that has new general manager Rick Spielman focused on the draft and exercising extreme financial caution in free agency.

    “We want to be successful in the long term,” said Mark Wilf, team president and co-owner. “And what Rick is about is a long-term process. … We want to win right away, too. But the main thing is we want to be first rate and first class on a consistent basis.”

    The Vikings headed into the 2010 season convinced that the status quo would be enough to reach the Super Bowl. They had won 12 regular-season games, routed the Cowboys in a divisional playoff game and took the Saints into overtime in New Orleans despite turning the ball over five times.

    In hindsight, that approach was terribly flawed and ultimately cost coach Brad Childress his job after a 3-7 start.

    Vikings remain committed to draft first

    By The Associated Press

    VikingUpdate.com

    Posted Apr 3, 2012

    The Vikings’ uninspiring free-agent activity is further proof that they intend to build through the draft.

    The Vikings have 10 picks in the NFL draft later this month, still in need of that cornerstone left tackle, a deep threat at wide receiver, a third-down running back, some depth at linebacker and plenty of cornerbacks and safeties. Their slots are high in each round, but one year is not enough to fill all of those holes even if a team hits on each player.

    Spielman, in an interview session with reporters earlier this offseason, declined to answer a question about whether the Vikings could realistically contend for the playoffs this year.

    “I’m not into predictions, but I know our goal is to get as many good players in here. You have seen that where teams flip this pretty quickly. This is not like we don’t have any players on this roster. I think we have some very good blue chip players on this roster,” Spielma

    A little bit of a surprising grade on the DTs:
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1129615-minnesota-vikings-2012-mock-draft-grading-the-picks-from-walterfootballcom#/articles/1124295-br-nfl-1000-top-64-defensive-tackles/page/62

    Guion steps in at #48, which isn’t any big surprise, but Kevin was graded a lot higher than I expected considering what happened last year. He steps in at #4 behind Richard Seymour, Geno Atkins and Hloti Ngata.

    Of course, we all know by now that we can’t trust the guys who put these lists together after they graded 2 players above the record setting performance of Jared Allen. Plus, they graded Williams’ health at a 10, saying he didn’t miss any games. Well, he missed the first two because of the suspension, but when he came back he still wasn’t at full health from the foot problem, and his play in the first half of the season showed it.

    The draft is doomed…No longer will Spielman be drafting for the present and future of the Vikings…He will immediately start using the recipe of disaster that has plagued this team for the last 50 yrs…And just draft play makers to try and save his job…

    Instead of drafting Kalil…The smart choice by far…Spielman might change gears and draft a Blackmon instead…A more “splash” type pick…Way more risk involved with a pick like that…

    I am hoping the Parcels thing is just media hype and the Wilfs are not truly considering it. Although I am not happy about givng Spielman or Fraizer another year, the Wilfs should stay the course until the end of 2012. This course of action if true will cause both Spielman and Fraizer to second guess themselves and hesitate. If these are the guys they need to know management is backing them 100 percent especially now while they are rebuilding the team. I may not support Spielman and Fraizer as a fan, but that doesn’t mean they should be supported by the owners. I still have the wait and see how this goes and am doubting. The Wilfs shouldn’t be and if they are they should have fired the entire crew at the end of the season. It’s too late now.

    I don’t agree with a lot of their grades, but at least it points you to the changes (if any) that were made. They grade the Seahawks at the bottom, but I personally think it looks like a big improvement over that teal thing they used to wear.

    I liked their heckle of the Chiefs’ uniform. Take a look at the link to find it!

    Outside of that, the article appears to repeat the idea that “you don’t fix what’s not broken” for just about every team. It’s repeated so often that it actually changed my opinion about the adage. I used to believe in it…now I hate it!

    Rueben Randle has 2 hands, 10 fingers, and top of the line WR gloves, but for some reason always catches the ball with his body. Why? Because he has zero faith in catching the ball with his hands. You can get away with that in College, but in the NFL youre going to have to snag the ball out the air!

    Vikings want a sure fire starter with the second pick in the draft…Kalil would be a starter for sure coming in from the first round…….The next position I believe the Vikings have the best shot at a very solid starter is at WR…

    Vikings should have a shot at a very good (or maybe even still elite) WR in the top of the second round…Not just good to average they might find in the 3rd or 4th rounds….

    OTK – I just think we’re almost set at WR as it is, compared to the Safety position. We have enough WRs to make it work, but one more elite speedster would still make a big difference.

    On the other side, we’re not even sure if our safeties would qualify as capable backups. That’s scary. I’m tired of seeing our safeties constantly get burned on passing plays. Our defense is in a position where if they can just do a bit better holding back the pass, they can keep us in games in the second half.

    Right guard a position battle to watch for Vikings

    Posted By Jeremy Fowler

    3 April, 2012 // Vikings // Tags : After the signing of former Panthers lineman Geoff Schwartz to a one-year deal, the Minnesota Vikings have up to three players vying for a starting spot at right guard.

    That’s just the way offensive line coach Jeff Davidson likes it.

    “It will be a competition,” Davidson said. “I think competition makes everybody better. So I’m hoping there’s a lot of competition.”

    The release of Steve Hutchinson and Anthony Herrera assures Minnesota will have two new starting guards, and the left side could belong to Charlie Johnson should the Vikings draft USC left tackle Matt Kalil. Johnson has played guard in the past and might be well-suited for the left guard spot alongside Kalil.

    That would leave Schwartz, veteran Joe Berger and Brandon Fusco, a sixth-round pick last year from Slippery Rock, to battle for Herrera’s former spot.

    Berger, who started seven games last year, is due $1 million in base salary in 2012. The Vikings felt comfortable enough with his play that they could move on from Herrera and still stay competitive inside.

    Fusco was considered a raw prospect out of Division II Slippery Rock, but coaches are happy with his development. He was drafted as a center but will get a hard look at right guard.

    “We’re excited about what we saw,” said Davidson about Fusco’s handful of snaps during the regular season. “Not willing to say it’s his job.”

    As for Schwartz, whose deal is worth up to $1.5 million including a $150,000 signing bonus, he’s most familiar with the right guard spot but gives the Vikings positional flexibility. He can swing over and play tackle if necessary.

    “I thought he would do a good job providing us with a quality backup to start with,” Davidson said. “We think he’s still got some upside too. It’s not juste a backup role. We’re hoping he’ll challenge for a starting spot.”

    Right guard will certainly be a top five position battle to watch entering OTAs and training camp.

    Frazier, coaching staff still waiting to put offseason stamp on Vikings

    2 April, 2012 // Vikings // Tags : Of the 1,263 reasons the Vikings’ 2011 campaign fell apart, a first-year coaching staff navigating a four-plus-month lockout had to rank among the top 50 reasons. The pairing of a new offensive scheme with little time to implement and an aging veteran quarterback was, in hindsight, doomed from the start. Coach Leslie Frazier spent his early days on the job scrambling to find a replacement left tackle for ballooning Bryant McKinnie. Other first-year coaches (49ers’ Jim Harbaugh, Titans’ Mike Munchak) weren’t slowed by the lockout, but various reasons, the Vikings staff never recovered.

    Year two of the Frazier era should be different, but as it stands, Frazier’s staff is still waiting patiently to start a full offseason that’s been drastically limited by the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

    CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco has an insightful piece on the NFL and offseason workouts and its limitations, but in short, the Vikings can begin their voluntary offseason workout program on April 16, two weeks from today.

    First-year coaches can start that process, known as Phase One, today. Frazier doesn’t get such a luxury. In Phase One, players are limited to on-field workouts with strength and conditioning coordinators, but perhaps most importantly, at least they can talk football with coaches.

    Arguably the most important offseason component for the Vikings, more than any free agent signing or draft pick, is offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave working closely with quarterback C. Ponder. This will be Musgrave’s first chance to tailor the offense around Ponder’s strengths, mask weaknesses and really put his stamp on the offense. Everything was rushed last year, and once Ponder became the starter, he had just spent six weeks fighting for scout-team reps in practice while Donovan McNabb commanded the offense.

    If the Vikings are to have success, the Musgrave-Ponder dynamic this offseason must be strong.

    The reason for 2 wr in that mock is because Jenkins would be the Speedy route runner while Quick would be the big body red zone threat. Grouped with Harvin in the Slot they could be very deadly. The reason behind 2 safeties is Smith is a SS while Johnson would be more of a roaming FS who would match up well against 5 Wrs sets and TEs.

    Roger – With 2 WRs in the draft, what do you do with the other WRs we already ahve? Jenkins, Aromashodu, Arceneaux & Burton are alredy on the team with Harvin. I think that Jenkins would be a great complement to any speedster we find in the draft, and the other three would provide more than enough depth at the position.

    I think the team is going to aim DT with the compensatory fourth. They seem to like defensive linemen in the fourth round.

    Thanks for the backing on Randle, OTK!

    I get excited when I see a WR throwing off DBs for an extra 2-3 yds. You can fault me for that, and I’ll be just fine. =)

    Well it looks like there will be alternate NIKE uniforms. I cant wait to see what ours will look like. Hopefully its not plain.

    I seriously think we should let Jenkins go. I don’t see enough effort out of the guy. Just my humble opinion.

    On the flip side, I think this Walters is another sleeper at WR that is gonna make a few folks go “WOW!”.

    I’m getting excited about the coming season! =)

    sandiamond….And which wide receivers did very well against the Bama defense…

    Didn’t Bama have a pretty good defense last season ??…There were not many WR’s from any team making highlight reels against that shut down defense…

    Jenkins is a good second receiver…Aroumashudu is the one that needs replacing….( I am sure I spelled his name wrong)…I can’t blame you guys that want a CB with the second pick…I see that need also…

    This is just a one fans wish list…I just wondering who is on Spielmans…. ; )

    Chris Carr agrees to terms with the Vikings.

    Aromashudu was just resigned not long ago.

    Dang Mike – I thought you were trying to pull a late April Fools joke on us!

    Somehow I thought that I heard he had signed with a different team. But it says we gave him a 1-year deal. This move makes me believe we will be targeting a WR with the second pick now.

    So now we have Cook, Winfield, Carr and Bowman as our top CBs, with Sherals and Allen behind them. If we draft another, it’s a great argument to say goodbye to one of the guys currently on the roster…I wonder who it will be…

    Carr’s pretty slow, especially for a short corner. This site says his 40-time was 4.62.

    After seeing that, I’d be surprised if he comes in for much more than dime packages. Brandon Carr must have been the CB I was thinking of. Much bigger name. He’s younger, taller, faster and more productive. Fooled myself there.

    we dont need the best LT in the draft. lineman can be above average and produce, at WR you need a PLAYMAKER having a bunch of average WR doesnt get you anywhere we need a #1. our CB situation is fine, we could use a safety but our 2 main needs our LT and WR. Blackmon 1st round LT 2nd or 3rd round IMO

    dunno how the Winfield moving to safety rumor started but is anyone thinking with the 2 CB we picked up and possible draft picks that he is more likely to switch now then say a month ago?

    Vikings GM Spielman says team might trade No. 3 pick in draft……..

    Of course…….because we don’t need the top O-Line rookie…………….

    THIS TEAM IS DOOMED!
