Frazier doesn't think he's losing the locker room

Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier addressed the media today and he was peppered with questions about the status of his team's mindset, and whether he is on the verge of losing the locker room.

At 1-7, defensive linemen Brian Robison and Kevin Williams took backhanded shots at decisions the coaching staff made in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

“There’s some things that are going on internally that are not allowing us to close out games,” Robison said following the game, via the Star Tribune.

“I think we could have been in better situations at the end of the game,” Williams added.

Williams also took a jab at offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's decision to call for a passing play on first down late in the fourth quarter.

“You think we would run, to run the time out,” Williams said. “But I don’t coach offense. I just have to play what they call on defense.”

"It's a natural thing for guys to maybe do when you've had tough losses like we've had. If you're not careful, you'll start believing that this is going to be a trend," Frazier said in response to his players calling out coaches, via the Pioneer Press. "Just gotta keep believing things will get turned around, and I know they will."

"I respect their opinions, I know how competitive they are and how much they want to win. I'd like for them to talk to their coaches."
