First off, Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Judd and I hope you have a wonderful and safe day with your family and loved ones.
The Vikings do not have media availability today so we won't have any live updates from Winter Park. We will return Friday morning.
We had a chance to talk to some of the defensive players in the locker room on Wednesday about the problems the secondary faced in a 31-3 loss to the Packers last Sunday. Specifically, cornerbacks Asher Allen and Chris Cook.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw at the young corners repeatedly with success, which frustrated their teammates. It culminated with defensive end Ray Edwards getting into a heated argument with Cook on the sideline.
Several players also ripped the corners in the postgame locker room. On Wednesday, it was pretty clear that interim coach Leslie Frazier had addressed that situation with players.
Cook was benched after a bad second quarter in which he gave up two big pass plays and one touchdown. It's the second time the rookie has been benched in the middle of a game but he said he hasn't lost his confidence.
