It didn’t take long.
The Minnesota Vikings fired coach Leslie Frazier on Monday morning, one year after they made the playoffs and one day after they finished a 5-10-1 season.
J’Marcus Webb may have more of an impact than the Bears hope in Sunday’s game against his new team, the Minnesota Vikings.
After leading the Minnesota Vikings to a surprising playoff berth last season, coach Leslie Frazier had a contract option picked up for 2014.
There is one Sunday left in the NFL season and coaches will be fired within 24 to 72 hours of the last game. Football never stops and if you are not getting better, you are getting worse.
There wasn’t much time to celebrate during Christian Ponder’s first day as a Minnesota Viking.
Mike Singletary and Leslie Frazier were part of the famous defense of the 1985 Super Bowl Champion Chicago Bears. And now they’re teaming up again in Minnesota.
This afternoon, the Vikings added intrigue to the mix for tonight’s game when they announced that Brett Favre has been upgraded from “Out” to “Questionable.”
The Bears are ready to play in a frigid day on a hopefully thawed field. The question, however, is are the Vikings? Minnesota hasn’t played an outdoor home game since 1981 and the Metrodome’s collapsed roof moved the game to TCF Bank Stadium.
It seems the cold weather has been downplayed by the Bears lately and that’s no surprise. This is just a part of the late season for Chicago. On the other hand, Minnesota is used to playing in the Metrodome. Who will have the advantage?
The Bears-Vikings game will already have multiple storylines before the game even begins. And one of those revolves around the health of Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre.
