This final week of the NFL season is filled with various playoff scenarios where teams are fighting to keep their seasons live, but for some teams, the final game means a fight of a different kind. For as many teams vying for a playoff spot, there are a handful of teams trying to decide whether they want to keep their head coach or fire him after today and for the Minnesota Vikings, it appears the decision has already been made.

According to FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer, Leslie Frazier is out as the Vikings head coach and will more than likely be fired after today’s game against the Lions regardless of the outcome.

Mike Floiro from ProFootballTalk.com states that as far as he know, no decision has been made but he’s also believing what Glazer is reporting as almost everything the NFL guru reports ends up being true.

It’s not all that shocking to see Frazier be fired after the last few seasons he’s had but the Vikings want a head coach that can keep it’s stars happy and one way to do that is to win games. The loss of Frazier impacts impending free agents like Jared Allen who may be more compelled than ever to leave a team that could start rebuilding.

Either way, it looks like today’s game against the Detroit Lions will be Leslie Frazier’s last as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.

    Vikings in danger of turning into the Oakland Raiders if they constantly blame their HC for everything, every time…

      The only other team in the league that is still using cover 2 are the Bears and Lovie Smith is sure to be gone too. Coaches need to adapt and change to the way that the game is being played today not continue to play a decade old scheme that every Offensive Coordinator has figured out. The Offensive plays are equally stale and unimaginative. The winning percentage over the last four years has been in the low .300s. I don’t think this is a reckless spur of the moment decision like the Browns.

    Good. The Offense is completely
    predictable, and on the Defense they are still using cover 2, that scheme is a decade old and offenses just blow right through it. Darrell Bevell or Greg Roman would both be a great. The game changes and you need coaches who can adapt to a changing landscape.
