New Vikings interim head coach Leslie Frazier addressed the media today just hours after he replaced the fired Brad Childress, and he said he’s putting all his attention on winning Sunday against the Redskins.
“Whatever was, was,” Frazier said. “We’re going forward.”
Frazier didn’t break much news in the press conference, but he did say he has already made his big decision on his starting quarterback.
“Brett Favre will be our starting quarterback on Sunday,” Frazier said. “Brett Favre is going to get it going, those turnovers are going to come down, and we’re going to get it going as a football team. I really believe that.”
Before Frazier spoke, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf made a brief appearance in which he said he has complete confidence in Frazier and thought the franchise needed a change from Childress. Frazier told reporters that he’s prepared to get the Vikings going in the right direction.
“We’ll be the Minnesota Vikings team that you and so many others in Minnesota expect,” Frazier said.
The Vikings couldn’t fall much shorter of expectations than they already have.
