Minnesota elevates Frazier from interim to permanent head coach

Leslie Frazier Vikings coach (NFL)

The Minnesota Vikings players have said all along that they wanted Leslie Frazier to continue as their head coach.

Owner Zigy Wilf must’ve been listening because he did exactly what the players had suggested.

Earlier in the week, the Vikings management decided to remove the interim tag and keep Frazier, who was the defensive coordinator, and make him the head coach.

Frazier says that he’ll look over the roster, staff, and schemes to see where improvement is needed to get the Vikings back in the playoffs.

He did indicate that he will not ask 41-year-old Brett Favre back under any condition.

Frazier was selected by Wilf on November 22 to replace the controversial Brad Childress who was fired. The Vikings went 3-3 under him after a 3-7 start. The players were more relaxed as opposed to being uptight under Childress who belittled them in the press at times.

Despite the fact that the New York Giants ended a disappointing season when they lost several games by close margins and some after leading by big margins, their coach’s job is safe for now.

Giants co-owner John Mara said earlier this week that Tom Coughlin will return to coach the team next season.

Mara put all rumors to rest after the Giants for the second straight season failed to make the playoffs.

The 64-year-old Coughlin has been the head coach of the Giants since 2004 and led them to the Super Bowl title at the end of the 2007 season. But the past two seasons, New York has had late season collapses.

The Carolina Panthers have announced that John Fox will not return in 2011. That ends a nine-year relationship in which he led the franchise to its only Super Bowl.

His departure from the Charlotte, North Carolina-based team has been no secret. It has been rumored for two years.

Fox coached his final game on Sunday at Atlanta.

The 55-year-old Fox is making more than $6 million this season. His record at Carolina ends at 78-74, which includes the franchises only Super Bowl appearances after the 2003 vs. the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVIII.

However, Carolina has never had consecutive winning seasons under Fox.

Vikings third-string QB Webb surprises Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles felt they had all the cards when they played the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikes were down to their third-string quarterback who was drafted as a wide receiver because Brett Favre was injured and Tarvaris Jackson was also banged-up. So, the call went to Joe Webb, who played quarterback at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

Webb played like a veteran signal-caller throwing for 195 yards and scored a rushing touchdown leading the Vikings to a stunning win over NFC East champion Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, 24-14.

The game marked the first Tuesday night NFL game since 1946.

The game was switched from Sunday night because of a howling storm that dumped about a foot of snow in the Philadelphia area.

Adrian Peterson rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown, to help the 6-9 Vikings knock the Eagles out of a chance at a first-round playoff bye.

Because of the loss, the Eagles will be the NFC’s number-3 seed and will play host to the number-6 seed on January 8 or 9.
