    Frazier said Viking will wait until Friday or Saturday to determine whether to sign a long-snapper to fill in for Loeffler.

    Sad state of affairs when you can’t replace a miniscule talent like or leaky Loeffler. What do these other centers do? Both John Sullivan and Pat Berger lack the skill needed to zip the ball back where Kluwe wants it? What does this say about our Special Team coaches other than their special in name only…?

    Can’t help noticing Belichik’s team doesn’t bother with a long snapper. Patriot don’t have a dedicated roster position they can afford to take up for a hiker.

    Bud Grant used to find his special snapper at Jack’s

    I have to agree with your assessment Lost Viking as far as a long snapper taking up a roster spot when we have like three centers on the team. I like Frazier as a person, that being said I don’t think he was ready to be a head coach in the NFL. Dealing with ultra eagles and not seemingly willing to stick a boot up someone keyster when it is called for makes him somewhat of a push over in these players eyes, just my opinion. The Vikings need a coach who will not hesitate to bench even a star player if they are not performing up to expectation and is willing rip them a new one when the team is underachieving to the degree the Vikings have thus far this season. The coaching staff as a whole has not shown an ability to motivate players to perform at a high level or coach them up an a inability to make adjustments when necessary, has been a major weakness of this staff. It would have been interesting to see how they grade themselves out as a coaching staff when they did their self evaluations.

      Frazier has surrounded himself with experienced, no-nonsense coaches:
      Bill Musgrave
      Fred Pagac
      Karl Dunbar
      Mike Singletary
      He’s made his expectations known and made hard decisions on Phat Pat, McKinnie, Chris Cook, McNabb and Berrian.

      Special Teams coach Pfeiffer stands out as a ‘motivator’ but I’d much prefer to have Brian Murphy back in that capacity.

      Frazier has sent a message this year with his personnel actions and we’d agree a message needed to be sent.

    mom – “maybe the vikings will win the next one.”

    little girl – “all of ’em are the same.”

    haha

    Buy Low, Sell High…..that’s what the Handle is prescribing to dry those tears.

    MINNESOTA +1

    Oakland brings a swagger here after pulling upset in San Diego and then having 10 days to prepare for this one. Scheduling hardly seems fair seeing that Viking are on a short week after getting steamrolled by the Packer on Monday night. Or was it a blessing? RB Adrian Peterson should be fresh after carrying the ball just 14 times last week and now faces a run defense that ranks 25th in the league. Raider have shown a propensity to fail after successes and being the league leaders in penalties doesn’t help matters. This is a classic case of sell high and buy low, as Carson Palmer and the Raider won impressively in prime time while Vike were bludgeoned by Packer. Now the Raider are an appealing and tiny favorite on the road and one we urge you to back off from.

    Play: Minnesota

    And here are couple of Handle takes on the NFC North – expect the unexpected

    Tampa Bay +14 over GREEN BAY

    Suggesting the Buc here is like trying to convince you to take the homely girl to the prom, even though the pretty girl is available, simply because you’ll be a better person for it. Packer are everyone’s beauty queens but continually covering double-digits spots in this league is never an easy assignment.

    Play: Tampa Bay +14

    Carolina +7 over DETROIT
    If you were to look at Detroit’s calendar, there’s likely a spot the size of a pin head marking this game while the contest that follows, a U.S. Thanksgiving Thursday game against the mighty Packer, will be highlighted, flagged, ink-spotted and whatever else that might illuminate it. Overlooking this feisty Carolina bunch could prove costly. Panther were a cover machine early in the season when they had a 4-0-1 mark versus spread when taking points. That success had them favored in previous three games with only one cover. Back where they are best and with Detroit QB Matthew Stafford nursing a bad finger, Carolina competes throughout.
