Continued: It's beginning to look a lot like 2011 for Vikings

This year, the top three corners — Cook, Josh Robinson and rookie Xavier Rhodes —are healthy, although Rhodes was limited in Thursday’s practice because of an ankle sprain. Having those three still on the field, regardless of their success to this point, is what keeps Frazier from feeling like he’s repeating 2011.

“I knew where we were, and I also know the NFL,” Frazier said. “People are going to throw the ball, and they’re going to throw it and they’re going to throw it. You’ve got to be able to defend it different ways. When you have a young secondary, there are going to be some things that you have to go through. But we’re going to get better. They will improve.”
