EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The day after Minnesota’s only defeat of the season, defensive coordinator Alan Williams met with the elders of his unit.

This wasn’t some scream-a-thon, though. The veterans weren’t stubbornly complaining about the new guy’s strategy, either. The talk, by all accounts, was more of a respectful give-and-take about how to avoid the same mistakes and become a stronger group.

Considering how the Vikings have played on defense since then, that conversation was sure productive.

Defensive end Brian Robison says the team appreciates Williams for his openness to feedback.

Williams was hired over the winter after 10 seasons as an assistant coach for the Indianapolis Colts.
