Vikings ponder what went wrong this season
Receiver Greg Camarillo was asked on Tuesday what the past 48 hours have been like.
“I’ve been here for three months, so it’s more like what have these three months been like,” Camarillo said. “It’s just a whirlwind. We’ve had highs. We’ve had lows. We’ve had crazy news. We’ve had regular news. Even when there’s no news there always seems to be something to make the news.”
With high-profile stars such as Favre, Peterson, Allen and Harvin, satellite trucks and national reporters have become a fixture at the team’s headquarters, a constant presence that is wearing on a veteran unit not used to being in such a harsh spotlight.
“Anytime you have a team that had so much success as this team had last year and you have the big names that this team has, there’s going to be media attention,” Camarillo said. “It’s too bad that media attention hasn’t been us being undefeated. Obviously we’re in a bad situation.”
With only six games remaining in what so far has been a monumentally disappointing season, it remains to be seen if there is enough time left for the coaching change to make a significant impact.
“I think when you look at our situation, we’re kind of stagnant right now and things aren’t working out,” linebacker Ben Leber said on Tuesday. “I think any change right now, you have to look at as a positive. So, we’re going to try to take this situation how some guys view it and other guys view it, everybody’s got to be on the same page, and I think we are, and we’re going to turn this into a positive situation. We have to.”
