Frazier faces turnaround challenge with 0-3 Vikings
EDEN PRAIRIE -- Leslie Frazier is nine games into his head coaching career with the Minnesota Vikings, and he already has endured several adverse situations.
His latest challenge is to revive the Vikings from a 0-3 start after the team blew big leads in the second half in each of their losses. Frazier said Monday "it takes a little while" to recover from the disappointment but believes the team has the right leaders and players to rebound.
Frazier's in-game decisions also have come under scrutiny. He called for a fourth-and-1 play that was stopped at a key moment at the Detroit 17-yard line in Sunday's defeat. He also opted to save timeouts late in the loss to Tampa Bay that left the Vikings with only a few seconds to catch up.
