Handful Of Minnesota Vikings 'Hung It Up' In Loss To Saints, According To Visanthe Shiancoe

The Minnesota Vikings lost on Sunday, again, as the New Orleans Saints "throttled" the team on its way to a 42-20 defeat. The Vikings actually trailed 14-13 at one point the game before the Saints turned it on in the second half.

The Vikings are now 2-12 on the season and have lost six consecutive games as they creep closer to guaranteeing themselves a spot near the top of this Spring's NFL Draft. It shouldn't be surprising, then, to hear that tight end Visanthe Shiancoe is claiming that a few guys are giving less than 100 percent at this point in the season.

"I would say, you could see some guys hung it up," Shiancoe said. "Not a lot though. Like a very small handful of guys."

Shiancoe said it was "very, very disappointing" to see that happen and made it clear he wants no part of being with a team that could be the worst in franchise history.

Those quotes, coming from Judd Zulgad at 1500 ESPN, indicate that at least part of the locker room may be in a bit of disarray. Head coach Leslie Frazier says he isn't worried about his job status, but he may want to work on limiting these types of quotes.
