Leslie Frazier took over a team in turmoil. After one rocky season, the unflappable coach has the Minnesota Vikings one victory away from a playoff berth. Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf tapped Frazier to be the interim coach in 2010 when Brett Favre and the rest of the team were falling apart. Frazier stepped in and impressed his bosses with how smoothly he navigated the collapse of the Metrodome roof, earning him the full-time job going into 2011. Even when the Vikings lost four out of five games in the middle of this year, Frazier was able to hold the team together. He has one more year left on his deal. He says he's focused solely on beating Green Bay on Sunday and getting into the playoffs.
