Frazier Says Vikings Played Smart, Tough, Disciplined Football In Win

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 7, 2012 – 11:21 pm

Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier has been cognizant of the mental approach his team has taken during each week of the season, and he hasn’t been afraid to share his observations publicly. Following the Vikings Week 3 home win over the San Francisco 49ers, Frazier acknowledged that his team did not handle very well the success they saw in a Week 1 win over Jacksonville. The result was a Week 2 letdown loss at Indianapolis.

In his post-game press conference following the 49ers win, though, Frazier explained that his team had gotten back on the right track in terms of preparation. He sang the same tune after the Vikings win over Detroit a week ago, saying his team’s Friday practice that week was the best Friday practice of the season.

So, following the Vikings most recent win, what was Frazier’s assessment of his team’s mental approach?

“The preparation that we put in during the week and then to go out and play as hard as we played, I take my hat off to our players and our coaching staff for preparing them to go out and play hard, play smart football, play tough football, disciplined football, which we want to embody,” Frazier said immediately after the Vikings win over Tennessee. “We want our team characteristics to show up every time we play. I thought our guys and our coaches did a great job of coming into this game with the right frame of mind.”

After starting the season 3-1, a mark that included victories over a pair of 2011 playoff teams in San Francisco and Detroit, many outside the organization wondered if the upstart Vikings would overlook an opponent with an inferior record. The Titans entered this week’s contest with a 1-3 mark and they had lost their three games by an average of 24.3 points per game. But Frazier’s constant monitoring of his team’s mindset and his willingness to express both pleasure and disappointment in that mindset will more times than not prevent the Vikings from becoming complacent.

“For us, the previous wins were against teams that people on the outside probably didn’t think that we would have much of a chance to win,” Frazier said. “Then you come back at home against a team that they’re hearing from their friends, saying ‘Oh, you guys got this. You got this.’ And what tends to happen, you can have a lull in your preparation, you can have a lull in the emotion and necessary tools to go out and win a game like this.

“Every team in this League can beat you on any given Sunday, so it was important for us from a maturity standpoint to show that we can win a game against what we thought, and we still believe, has a chance to be a very, very good football team. For us to go out and dominate in so many ways, that’s a good sign about our football team.”

    Don’t celebrate too much. You beat a team that is arguably the worst in the nfl. Your OC has no imagination, calls predictable plays, and you guys just don’t have a killer instinct to put games away as evidenced by letting the Titans score. Enjoy the feeling while you can but don’t get your hopes too high because you still have 4 divisional games agains GB and Chi, and these will be painful experiences. We are ready for your predictable play calling and “can’t handle adversity” attitudes. The Vikes will be exposed for who they really are when they go up against GB and Chi. Write that down and carry on.

    PackWhack, what was the packers score today? What is your record? Who did you play today? Packers do not have much to say so far this year, you will be lucky to win more than 9 games the way your team is playing. Must not have had the money this year to pay off them ref’s…

    Go Vikings.

    Im not even worried about the packers. They know they are declining and they are going to try their hardest to get those last jabs in. Anyway… Harrison smith was on his way to laying the wood, and i felt a couple picks coming in the back end the way matt was throwing, that TE cook would not have scored with ” The Earaser.” I hope the dude just gets a fine, anyone see the play at the game?? broadcast/replay doesnt show it?

    Packwhack – Majority of us Vikings aren’t getting ahead of ourselves but Titans are not worst in NFL, they’ve had a very tough schedule so far.

    As for your stupid comment on killer instinct, letting 1 TD in all game isn’t bad and it didn’t let Titans back into the game. We then went the other end and scored more – if that isn’t killer instinct then i don’t know what is.

    You can whine all you like about the Seahawks result but YOU should have killed them off before that play anyway.

    Concentrate on your own team and you might nt actually be a complete hypocrite.

    I do have a question for Frazier which is: When you sent Webb in to mop up with 1:57 left on ther clock, why the “Take a Knee” on 1st Down?

    All that acomplished was it put the Titans back into the game!
    Even with their 3rd string QB Smith, they got to the 25 yard line.

    Next time kill them off, for stats reasons if nothing esle.

    The only thing that made the vikings winning that much sweeter, was to watch the fudge packers blow a 21 to 3 half time lead. HA! guess Rogers is not as invincible as his fans thought… Beat out by a rookie… OH amn that makes me happy on the inside. If the Packers play like that the rest of the season I see their record right around .500 8 and 8 for the season.

    H. Smith made a stupid decision but at least it didn’t effect the game too much. There were a lot of bad calls this week by the refs too… Still good to have them back tho.

    The D was solid. I still feel like we could work on our pass rush though. Not saying it’s bad, but it’s defiantly not what it was last year. I will take a winning D over a Sack leading D any day however. J. Sanford ahs really stepped up in a big way in my mind, especially a guy who didn’t do much of anything last year

    Well, it did give the Titans a chance to score again which would have changed the stats.

    The game was well in hand for a Vikings win…That is why Frazier had Webb kneel down…The reason they came out of it…Was because the Titans called a “time out”…For some unknown reason…And had more time outs left…

    The score was 30-7 at the time…I guess the Titans wanted to add some garbage time stats ???…Being down by over 3 scores and less than 2 minutes left to play…

    Titans had already lost one player late in the game to a gruesome knee injury…

    Frazier attempted the right play with the kneel down…But the Titans still wanted to play…Not sure what the Titans thought they had to gain ??…

    Watched a video on the Strib Vikings page…

    I guess we can thank Musgrave for the pass play late to Rudolf…Musgrave waived off Frazier’s running play…Musgrave wanted to throw that pass to Rudolf…

    Way to go Musgrave !!!…For showing CONFIDENCE in your young QB !!!!…

    I am aware the game was well in hand, that is not the point I was trying to make.

    One of the reasons the Vikings were 3/13 last year was after leading a number of games at half-time, we did not put the other teams down.

    Frazier didn’t know the Titans would keep fighting. He should have

    Try that with GreenBay and Chicago and see what happens..

If they continue to improve we are going to turn this ship around very quickly. I feel like we are already legit contenders.

    OTKalil2012, I would say they wanted to save some of their pride. Why does anyone play when the cause is lost? One should never quit trying even if the game is over, I know there are them who say it is over so stop, why take the chance, I think when one is so far ahead in a game and there is not much time left, they should play some of the second stringers, so they can have some playing time. What Coach Frazier did was not wrong, just different then what I would have done. Great job Vikings, keep it up, like seeing you steamrolling you opponents. You have the talent now just do it to it, SKOL Vikings.

    To continue my last posting, If the second stringers got in to trouble you could have the first stringer ready to save the day. I do believe if the other team is unable to stop you that are their problem, not yours. What is this thing about hurting your opponent’s feelings? If my team gets it a-s-s kicked I am e-m-b-a-r-r-a-s-s-e-d for them. I would not be angry at the opponent. I think the coaches are starting to show they belong in the NFL, though they need improvement here and there. Over all a good start, keep it up and just do it to it. SKOL Vikings.

    Harrison Smith is the Dback we really needed to get in this years draft. And to get Josh Robinson in the third round was gravy. Two starters in the D backfield was just what the doctor ordered. HSmith is a smash mouth player you need to make receivers fear to go across the middle of the field. What an addition both of these young players have made to our defense!!

    I cannot believe it– after Indy demolished the Pack. Five sacks in the second half. Ha– wait till the Pack come into the metrodome– Vikes win by three TDs. Bank on it.

    I am thinking that the Vikings are truly gelling now with there players and chemistry with one another. That is what needed to happen. Now more than ever they need to stay tough and support each other because they have a target on them now. They have proved the critics wrong. Period. Listening to the commentators last night, it was apparent to me that it is only going to get tougher on the Vikes now and they need to play even better thanthey have done the last 2 weeks. Next week will be a good test again for the Vikes. I think we will again have some great matchups where we will have the advantage on the Skins. I hope thay they capatalize on these and get some pay-back…

    BB7, I agree with you on Frazier. It probably didn’t matter as far as the outcome of the game, but in his press conference he said he had told Musgrave that running time off the clock was more important than scoring that last td. Musgrave said he could score and went with the aggressive approach.
    Then Frazier was glad after it worked out. He gets into that non aggressive prevent mind set too often and too early in my opinion.

  37. By Muskyfever on Oct 8, 2012 | Reply

    We just need to make sure that we stay sharp and focused for next week as we will be playing on the road next week against a talanted young QB. Just need to make sure we are focused, don’t want success going to our heads at all… that is when we faulter. Stay sharp and we could be 7 and 2 or 8 and 1 before the 10th week. Could be playoff ready by 12th week depending on other teams records…

    I also agree with you QB… Fraizer can get a little gaurded after being up by not that much. He goes into that mindset a little quick. Thank goodness for Musgrave to tell Fraizer its not always about clock time, sometimes we need to show our dominance to finish this game once and for all. Personally I wish we would run the score up more often.

    Cook on Garcon will be a fun matchup, but I think you gotta keep either Sanford or Smith over the top on every play. And yes, we need a QB spy all game. However even last year with Can Newton and his style (not to different from RGIII) and we won that game on the road. Contain RGIII and we will be just fine, control the clock and run the ball..

    Gotta wonder about Shanahan…If anybody else in the league gets a concussion..It is called a concussion…

    If a main player on any Shanahan team gets a concussion…It is called a “minor” concussion…

    Because you can bet with Shanahan…RG III will be in at QB this week…Even if it takes RG 3 smelling sniffing salts, before taking any concussion tests for the team or league doctors…

    Shanahan is old school…I don’t think he likes this new testing concussion era…

    My bet is…RG III plays…

  49. By OTKalil2012 on Oct 8, 2012 | Reply

    The Skins will be a VERY PHYSICAL game…A Shanahan coached team will take some cheap shots on defense…

    ESPECIALLY with teams who are known, not too bring the hurt back in payback…This is a category that must change for the Vikings also…

    When a team is laying excessive and late bl ows on your offensive players…Retaliation is needed…To protect those players…

    In 2009, there was a playoff game where the Saints took similar liberties…

    Yes, I hate dirty play…But a team needs to protect each other also…Lets just hope this doesn’t happen…But this fan doesn’t trust Shanahan at all…

    Be ready to get physical Vikings !!!…

    We lost to the Colts yesterday, and yes we also lost to the Seahawks. We’re not off to the start we would like, but as the saying goes “on any Sunday”, so hats off to Indy for pulling off the upset. BTW, wasn’t that the same team you guys choked by putting on your patented displays of giving up 20+ yd chunks in the final seconds only to have the game slip out of your hands? The reason why is the Vikes just don’t have a killer instinct at all and it shows. Even yestderday, you had such a good lead, you softened up and gave them a score. Another example is when you put in your second string QB to kill the clock, you have him take a knee rather then get another set of downs. It’s little things like this that separate the great teams from the forever doomed medicore teams like the Vikings. Let’s see how your predictable play calling goes when we meet on the field. This is supposed to be a rival game, at least try to make it a game. I’ll give you this though, your team has many labels: choke label, the underachieve label, the 4th qtr meltdown label, and I guarantee these labels will show their ugly face many times this season. (already happened in Indy giving them the game, that was nice of you guys, at least they beat us and we didn’t give them the game, you should be 5-0) Carry on, and until then I leave you this question: How many Lombardi trophies do you guys have? What was that? I thought so. zero. I don’t need to remind you how many we have. Hint: it’s not zero

The packers have no killer instinct, this fool, they blew a 17 point lead, yet somehow the vikings are the ones who don’t put games away? I cannot wait to sweep the packers this year, Mark my words we will beat them twice! Aaron Rodgers is the most overrated QB that is labeled “Elite”. The Packers D isnt even worth our time to insult how pathetic they are. The Packers Offense is the most predictable thing in the world, pass ,pass,pass, try to run(key worrd), pass, pass, pass.

    ok… I wasn’t gunna go after the troller fudgepacker… ooops I mean whackpack..or is it packwhack… either way your name says it perfectly WHACK! that is what your team is. I bet that the vikes not only beat the pack once, but they win both times this season.

    Packers fans are the largest group of immature whiners I have ever seen or heard in my life. Never once do they come to the aid of a team (that is not their own) if a bad call was made and agree that it should have gone the other way. For example in 2010 when the vikes played the Whackers. Favre set up a nice pass to Shianco in the endzone that WAS caught and they ruled it a no TD. After the game on Monday the league issued a public reply that it should have been a TD. Vikes lost that game by less then a TD. Further more, once playoff time came, the Whackers got the wild card by one game… how many..? ONE. They continued to win a superbowl. So that being said, if you take away that ONE game… not only do you not go to playoffs you never win a Super Bowl. So in my eyes you didn’t earn your merit there either.

    BJ Raji cried like a little B**** last year when you lost to the Chiefs. And Matthews and Rogers said that the NYG did not beat them in the playoffs and the lost to a less talented team… A team of which WON the Super Bowl.

    Heres an idea, stop acting like little girls who lost their barbie… It’s getting old, and the rest of the league doesn’t care anymore.

    P.S. it’s “On any given Sunday” you forgot Given

    OK, so I heard somewhere that H. Smith could get suspended for his penalty?? I guess it never crossed my mind that they would, but now that I think about it I don’t see why they wouldn’t…?? Which freaks me out a little. anyone have any stipulations on how long you think he would be out.

    I mean Clay Matthews put Roger Goodell’s Phone number on face book, Rogers called the league and the commisioner a Joke… but nothing happened, in my eyes that was worse then what Smith did. And he knows he made a mistake. Give the rook a break huh?

    I am not sure though… what does everyone else think?

    It will either be a BIG fine for Smith…

    Or there might be a one game suspension involved…

    At worst, I could see…

    Both scenarios might happen…


    Hopefully the young player only gets a big fine…

    Keeping fingers crossed here…We need Smith against the Skins…

    @Musky…I heard from some where that Smith will not be suspended or fined since i was out for 2/3rds of the game so hoping nothing happens!

    Thanks for clearing up what happened in yesterdays Packers game at Indy and what happened with the Vikings game. I watched both games and I obviously saw something completely different. I appreciate you breaking both games down for me and I have a call placed to DirecTV because I am obviously not seeing the games cleary!

    You need a discount double nut check!

    Harrison Smith is fine, he won’t be suspended.

    I wish someone would do an interview with Smith to see how he feels about his roll. And that most fans think he is one of the best in the secondary. I would be curious to know if he knows how much his playing time means to this team…

    Yes, Thanks Spencer…H. Smith is a fine playing young Rookie. He fun to watch. I am very happy he isn’t being fined or suspended for a hit that was an accident. watch the replay.

    It’s amusing to see Viking fans get so easily ruffled. (Imagine what your team could do if they played with the same fire of their fans) Rather than emotion, I deal with facts, and one fact I don’t understand is why you all remain so hopeful and vigorously defend your team’s proven history of blowing big leads, under performing, and rarely showing any true grit? In truth, I wish you guys would be a more credible rival. With the Bears, at least we know they are going to play their best and give us a fight. You guys, just have never been much of a fight. I hope you at least make our first meeting interesting like last year, but we got you figured out so there’s little hope of that happening. Can’t wait for the first match up where we expose the real vikings. (note I used a lowercase v for vikings instead of the childish viqueens)

    @fudgepacker –

    Vikings and Packers if we are going facts here.. Packers lead the series between the two teams 52 wins to 48 vikings wins and 1 tie. So if I am not mistaken that is only 4 games. Two of which we will get back this season. Personally I am not worried about the fudgepackers as they are all out packing some fudge as we speak, Just like a normal day in WI for all of you huh?

    I can’t wait for the first matchup either. Finally get those Fudgers to shut up for once since all you guys do is talk, whine and pack fudge…

    Send your team our best regards. Be happy that the vikies can’t get to your QB till the end of the season. Otherwise it would be a long season without your starting Fudge Packer

    Ignore the child in the cheesehat. She is trying to rile everyone because there is nothing to say for a Packer fan this year. Let’s have a historical lesson evidenced -based on facts on last year’s killer instinct Green Bay Packers.

    After going 15-1, and that is a FACT, the beloved Packers dropped their first playoff game (a choking FACT) at home (especially sad FACT).

    Fact– Vikings are 4-1. San Fran is the best team in the NFC, annihilating every team they play. No one has beaten the Niners except the Vikings- FACT with a capital V.

    PackWhack, So our plays are predictable are they? That explains how we beat the 9ers after they killed the packers, and I haven’t checked the standings lately but I was under the impression that the Vikes are 2 games AHEAD of the Packers. The Titans may suck but you also have to remember that they put up 44 points against the Lions and the fact that we held them to only 7 points is pretty impressive. We’ll see who wins with all of these so called “predictable calls” that the vikings have that just so happen to have us at 4-1. SKOL Vikings, Packers and there fans are the most classless group of people I have seen in my life.

    Hey Frasier you have had my support from the start thank you for showing the fans how right most of us were for believing in you. I say they are playing smart because of the coaches and their love and belief in them.We are a completre team and each week we get better and the coaches are planning better and making the right calls.This is a true tream and coaches effort that has turned us around. Did everyone see the nfl poll that gave us a 60% showing for the most surprising team this year.Just as frasier gives the team praise ditto for him and the coaching staff. Being from ohio and a viking fan over 35 yrs I’m happy with what we have now.
