While being one of the worst teams in the league and losing to one of your peers invites scrutiny, it doesn’t appear to be time for change in Minnesota.
Vikings owner Zygi Wilf, a New Jersey resident and once zealous Giants fan, gave a somewhat vague statement of support for his staff after last night’s loss to the Giants.
Asked if he planned to make any immediate changes, Wilf replied: “I’m sticking with my team. That’s our team. We’re going to stick with it.”
“Tough loss,” he also said, via Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “I thought we would come back here and pick up a win. But every loss is a tough loss.”
Wilf has been willing to make changes in midstream before. That’s how current coach Leslie Frazier got his job, replacing Brad Childress in 2010 after a 3-7 start. Of course, there are layers of dysfunction beyond Frazier, and some degree of change is inevitable, beyond their embarrassing quarterback-of-the-week situation.
