i seriously hope he quits letting the OL coach rest on his laurels for AP's 2000+ yard season and demands better.
Maybe there was no one willing to take a job under an "unproven" rookie head coach, but I think that the way this team is trending, will open some reluctant eyes and possibly bring in even more new blood in the way of "good" FA Players and even position coaches who want to jump on the elevator, as it continues it's rise.
Zim needs to be as honest with his end of year staff evaluations as he is with player and game day performance and make the changes he sees as necessary.
Screw the "good ol boy" network who discounted Zim for all those years, anyway, and build a staff and roster that gets us the championship.
If that happens, nay, when, he will supplant Grant as best Vikings coach ever.
To win the big one, the one thing Grant was never able to do, would indeed place Zimmer above Grant in Vikings Lore. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. He doesn't even have a winning season yet...much less a playoff appearance, playoff win, etc.
Right now Bad Childress has still accomplished more.
But Zimmer's got this team moving in the right direction. I hope the improvement continues.
