Frazier was asked how he's handling the situation personally.
"You have to keep reminding yourself, and I was talking to my coaches about this, it is a journey, it's a part of what we have to go through to get to where we want eventually," he said. "I don't foresee us forever being in this situation. There are some things that we are all learning, from what we are experiencing, and I really believe that we will look back on it in time and say, ‘OK, this is what happened in 2011 and this is why we are better in 2012 because of what happened in 2011.'
"I have gone through some difficult times in the past and have been able to look back at some of those moments and to see how they have helped me later on, and that's what I'm expecting to happen here. This is hard, there isn't any question about it, and you hate losing games. I can't even remember the last time I was in a situation where we lost 10 games in a season.
"It's hard, but you have to be able to see the bigger picture. It's our first year together as a staff, first year together as a team, and we have some things that we have to get corrected, but you can see some light beginning to shine. I think our young quarterback, even though he has made some mistakes, he gives you some hope in some areas. When you see guys fighting like Percy (Harvin), and in some other areas of our team Jared (Allen) and others, it just lets you know, if we can fill in some pieces, we will have a chance."
Owner Zygi Wilf told the Minneapolis Star Tribune after Sunday's game that Frazier "definitely" will be brought back next season.
Frazier wasn't interested in discussing his future when asked about Wilf's comments on Monday.
"I'm really thinking more about Detroit (on Sunday) than the 2012 season," Frazier said.
