Interim head coach Leslie Frazier left no doubt about his plans now that he has taken over, keeping QB Brett Favre as the team's starter. Part of that has to do with Frazier trying to finish the season strong and retain the coaching position full time. And he believes his best chance is to lean on his team's veteran corps down the stretch. Following one of the first practices after he took over, Frazier huddled with his team's leaders, including Favre, and delivered his message of what he wants and expects from them the remainder of the season. For Favre, these final games will matter mostly for personal pride. He said he wants to make the best of what this season has become and finish as close to the top as he can. But for the carryover Vikings, it could have a greater effect. If Frazier wins this job with a strong finish, he likely will have done so by getting the team to play well and hard even with the playoffs out of reach.
