Audio: The Coordinators

The Vikings' three coordinators assess their different areas of expertise and look ahead to the factors affecting their upcoming game in Chicago.

Offensive coordinator talks about preparing for a cold-weather game, Jermaine Wiggins' injury progress, communication between the players and coaches, Steve Hutchinson's knee, mixing and matching the offensive line and Chester Taylor's style.

Defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin talks about the lack of running plays against his team and the effect it has on Pat Williams, Cedric Griffin moving ahead of Fred Smoot, getting Ben Leber more involved, going back to Tomlin's college days for a formation, the philosophy on defense, and analyzing Rex Grossman.

Special teams coordinator Paul Ferraro talks about his coverage units against Arizona, working with different personnel, Devin Hester's ability, Ryan Longwell's kickoffs and a play that didn't go off as Ferraro had planned last weekend.
