If you’ll recall, I thought it a little odd that Leslie Frazier held up Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco as examples of franchise quarterbacks during his first press conference as head coach rather than Peyton Manning or Tom Brady.
Ultimately, I put it down to simply those name spontaneously popping into his mind at the time but he’s done it again In a recent interview with Ann Carroll on Vikings Weekly, Frazier again talked about his admiration for Joe Flacco. [WATCH the Leslie Frazier Interview.]
While I think Flacco’s a good quarterback, maybe even a franchise quarterback, I don’t think he’s a great quarterback. Maybe he will be but I don’t think he is yet.
The Star Tribune‘s Sid Hartman reports that Vikings defensive line coach Karl Dunbar and wide receivers coach George Stewart will remain on staff, that Fred Pagac will likely remain as the defensive coordinator and that we should know by Monday or Tuesday who the offensive coordinator will be.
