The Minnesota Vikings have just completed one of their best decisions is a few years by naming Leslie Frazier the head coach of the organization, but where do the Vikings go from here? Coach Frazier said in his press conference that the most important position on the field is the quarterback position. If you don’t believe that, simply look at the performance of the quarterbacks from each team in the NFC West this season, then wonder why a 7-9 team reached the playoffs.
Is Joe Webb the answer? He played an outstanding game against a tough Eagles defense. He seems to have all the tools. He has size and speed, but he needs to work on delivery. The Vikings have the 12th pick in the first round in the 2011 draft.
Do you stick with Webb and fill holes from players that likely will be leaving in free agency or do you take a shot at another quarterback? There is a chance that Cam Newton could be available at #12. Will he be a Josh Freeman type rookie or a JaMarcus Russel/Vince Young type player in the NFL? Can Joe Webb develop into a starting caliber quarterback?
Leslie Frazier is not an outside coach, he knows what caliber quarterback that Joe Webb is and what he might be able to be coached into. I will not be shocked to see Frazier stick with Webb in 2011 and address other needs, such as the offensive line in the first round of the 2011 draft.
