Kevin Williams Is Unhappy With Minnesota Vikings Coach Leslie Frazier

The Minnesota Vikings are off to a terrible start and they've decided to bench veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb in order to give rookie Christian Ponder the first start of his career against the undefeated Green Bay Packers this weekend. Suffice it to say, this isn't exactly a good week for controversy, but that's exactly what's happened between defensive tackle Kevin Williams and head coach Leslie Frazier.

Williams took offense to Frazier's comments on Monday regarding the play of both lines in last week's loss.

"That's what we kind of pride ourselves on, our O-line and our D-line, particularly our defensive line really being the force to drive our defense," said Frazier on Monday. "We were not the most physical group out there last night. And that's a concern."

In response to that, Williams went on a diatribe as transcribed by Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press.

"If you want to call somebody out, call who you're talking about out," the six-time Pro Bowler said Friday. "Don't say the whole group got out-physicaled. I don't believe that at all. I saw that on the news and I was like, 'You show a play where two guys are double-teaming me, of course you're going to get out-physicaled if you're getting double-teamed on a run block. One guy's trying to hold me up and the other guy's trying to take a run at my side ... If you want to call somebody out, you can do that. A couple of guys might have gotten pushed off the ball, but the whole group, no."

One has to wonder if there's any chance of this ending well.
