|The Minnesota Vikings take their turn in the examination room after beating Washington.|
When we watch the Vikings over this final stretch, how much of what they do will be emblematic of Frazier's long-term vision? And how much will just be his attempt to win games with the infrastructure he inherited? It's an important distinction. It was prudent to pull back on Favre this week. But is Frazier a conservative, run-first coach? Or does he just see it as the best path for this team? At some point, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf will make an evaluation of Frazier's performance and determine if it's worthy of the permanent job. Will he get what he sees? Or will he get a pragmatist? Either option is fine. It's just important to know.
