Leslie Frazier and the Mn Vikings have hired Mike Singletary as the Vikings Linebacker/Assistant Head Coach. This is a great move. Mike Singletary, or "The Minister Of Defense" as he is referred to since he is an ordained Minister, couldn't be more of a polar opposite than Leslie Frazier. Frazier's calm cool attitude in the face of adversity and challenges are why the Vikings hired him as their head coach and also why Singletary's style is the perfect compliment.
Mike Singletary, aka "The Minister Of Defense", "Samurai Mike" or "Iron Mike", has a very intense personality. He carried this intensity and passion with him both as a player in the NFL and as a coach. Singletary played 12 years in the NFL for Mike Ditka and the Chicago Bears, only missed two games, and the reason Sigletary has been given more than one nickname is his intensity and style of play. Singletary intimidated his NFL rivals with his aggressive, in your face, smash mouth football style!
Singletary was most recently the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, until he was fired after the 49ers were eliminated from playoff contention in 2010. He spent three years as the 49ers head coach, and head coach isn't where Singletary belongs - he is "The Minister Of Defense."
Singletary's intensity is welcomed in Minnesota and we look forward to his leadership that the Mn Vikings defense will need next year and beyond.
