"We back coach Frazier 100 percent and we'll do everything we can to help him get this thing turned around," Spielman said.
Spielman said he leaves the starting quarterback decision up to Frazier. Spielman also said he can evaluate Freeman, who he paid $2 million for the balance of the season, without the quarterback being on the field.
"This was just a great chance -- whether he played or not -- that you would have a much better idea of what a Josh Freeman was by the end of the season just by him being in your building and being around that player for 12 weeks," Spielman said.
The GM's comments are positive for Frazier for the rest of this season, but things could change after the year. It's also possible that Spielman finds himself out of a job if owner Ziggy Wilf isn't convinced the Vikings' ship is pointed in the right direction.
