I just heard on the local radio that Leslie Frazer was contacted by the Broncos this week.
The Vikings have a good, no, a great defense right now. Does this qualify Frazer? Not in my opinion. When Mike Tomlin was here, you could see he might do well as a head coach somewhere because the defense took some solid steps forward when he took over for Ted Cottrell (who stinks IMO). But, Frazer inherited a defense with excellent personnel and got the personnel upgraded for him. Denver is a LONG way away from having Kevin (possibly a HOF'er) and Pat Williams and Jared Allen in their front 4, EJ Henderson and Chad Greenway at the LB spots, Darren Sharper at safety and Antoine Winfield at the corner. Shoot, even Slowik could coach this defense into the top 5. By contrast, Spagnuolo (did I mention he's the candidate I like?) took a mediocre defense and tamed arguably the best offense in history with it. Then the following year, lost 4 of his best starters to retirement, FA and injury and still had the defense on a tear the entire season. That screams great coaching job to me, Frazer's work does not.
