Minnesota Vikings General Manager, Rick Spielman has gone on the record by saying that head coach Leslie Frazier will be part of the vikings organization through the 2014 season.

“Leslie Frazier is not going anywhere,” Spielman said. “I am telling you that we are very committed to Leslie Frazier and this coaching staff. And we’re committed to our players, and everybody is working extremely hard to get this thing turned around.”

The problem is that Spielman can’t be sure that anyone else’s job is safe, because he can’t say for sure that his own job is safe. If the second half of the season in Minnesota is as much of a debacle as the first half has been, everyone’s job is in jeopardy.

Spielman has indicated that the goal for the rest of the year is determining whether Christian Ponder, Josh Freeman or Matt Cassel will be taking snaps as the starter for the vikings has what it takes to be the team’s starter in 2014 and beyond.

“I know by the end of the year we should definitely have idea on what direction if we have a franchise quarterback on this roster right now, or do we have to go into the draft potentially and look for a franchise quarterback, or where do we go at the end of the season,” Spielman said. “But if you don’t have them in your building to get a fair assessment and true evaluation, this will give you a clearer picture of the direction you have to go at the end of the year.”
