Audio: The Coordinators

The Vikings' three coordinators discuss areas of concern in their field of expertise, along with the team's upcoming game at Detroit on Sunday.

Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell discusses Brad Johnson's struggles and how the team hasn't helped out Johnson, the receivers dropping passes, Chester Taylor's ability to play with pain, and the missed assignments and penalties that are bogging down the offense.

Defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin talks about his expectations for the defense, getting turnovers, having starters play on special teams, Napoleon Harris' injury, Pat Williams' problematic knee, Rod Marinelli's familiarity with Tomlin, and Fred Smoot's style of play.

Special teams coordinator Paul Ferraro talks about the breakdowns on special teams, from missed tackles to poor decisions fielding punts, and addresses the task of facing Eddie Drummond and Detroit's strong field-goal-blocking team.
