Tom Pelissero of USA Today believes that the Minnesota Vikings are unlikely to fire Head Coach Leslie Frazier during the season, despite his team’s 1-6 start after making the playoffs a year ago and acquiring three first round draft picks in the previous NFL Draft that had expectations sky-high for the team:


Despite leading the Vikings to the playoffs in 2012, Frazier’s career head-coaching record with the team is a very pedestrian 17-28 (.378). He’ll likely be fired at season’s end at the rate the team is going, which is very unfortunate. Frazier has done well with the personnel he’s had over the past three seasons, but having Christian Ponder as his starting quarterback will likely be what leads to his downfall.

They play the Dallas Cowboys this coming Sunday.
