The Minnesota Vikings were terrible in 2011, as they limped to a 3-13 record and lost their star running back, Adrian Peterson to a badly injured knee. Head coach Leslie Frazier is 6-16 since taking over for head coach Brad Childress midway through the 2010 season. If the Vikings don't show any improvement this season, Frazier will almost certainly be looking for work.
In fact, Frazier might want to start polishing up that old resume right about now. If Peterson returns healthy—and that's a big if—the offense might be better around quarterback Christian Ponder. The problem will come at receiver, where Jerome Simpson, Percy Harvin and Michael Jenkins must improve their play.
I have little faith that the Vikings can suddenly become a playoff team this year, and if they don't, there is little room to keep Frazier around.
