Don't take a freakin' knee, that's how a coach gets fired.

Make Defilippo HC:

Defilippo immediately fires Priefer. Bailey kicks with confidence and doesn't miss extra points. Better execution of in
onside kicks.

Team plays with confidence, is more aggressive, and doesn't fumble in crucial moments.


You think Theilen and Cousins are playing with confidence? You think Cousins and Thilen aren't playing with aggression? Judas guys. It was execution that had nothing to do with Flip or Zimmer.

Well, that was the "not ready for prime time team" right there. Saints got their revenge. And honestly, we haven't been the same team since they exposed us in the second half of our playoff game against them. I know it's easy to point at injuries, but every team has injuries. Our coaching seems to put the same predictable product on the field every week. Sometimes we win, sometimes we don't. But there is no fear factor anymore for teams opposing us. I wish it were otherwise.


Getting Rhodes and Barr healthy will help a ton. Griffen is knocking the rust off too.

Injuries? We have lost Hughes for the year. Easton for the year. Elflein didn't play for the first few games.... Reiff, Rhodes, Barr, Waynes, Sendejo have missed games.

You are embarrassing to listen Phil.

With the NFL rules slanted for the offense, Zimmer should draft focusing on that.

But he won't.

Apparently we gotta have all pro starters and backups at every position on D for this team to be successful. Sheesh the excuses for Zimmer get old.

Zimmer is a defensive god. Yet he needs every high draft pick and perfect health.

Ried struck gold with Mahomes, but I don't know if Ried will ever coach a SB winner.

He is overweight, which shows not having discipline. His teams start out hot, but aren't usually all that impressive in the playoffs.

Apparently...he must be a horrible coach as he didn't coach any of them into All Pro capability either. Fire him...Cousins throws for a INT fire everyone. Thielen fumbles it fire SPielman, ZImmer, Priefer, Treadwell, and everyone. Copy and paste every week.

Exactly. I've been on to him for a while. He just isnt a very good head coach. Hell even as DC he got smoked in the big games. Oh well. Same old Vikings.

This second half feels so inert to me. Maybe it is because I can hardly stay awake, but it's almost like the decision to take a knee at the end of the first half after the Theilen fumble was like the team punting the game.

Like I wonder if that decision deflates a team. Sorry guys, you can't be trusted to do anything with thirty seconds and two time-outs. The other team is too dangerous to risk playing a full game against. Let's just try to get out of here alive, collect our pay checks and get to the safety of the offseason.


How can a coach expect his players to go all out for him when he doesn't even trust them at the end of the half?

Still playing catch up to how the game is played today. Why is it taking Zimmer so long to catch up?

The end of the first half was ridiculous beyond belief, but also a reminder of who Zimmer is.



Yea, this isn't knew for Zimmer and it is obviously who he is. I think he is a solid defensive minded coach, but it appears he is not wired for offensive applications. History is full of coaches that make better coordinators than HC's. Perhaps Zim is one of those, not a knock on him, just an observation.

Way too many mistakes to beat a quality team, that is also becoming a trait for this staff (lack of discipline), and that isn't a good thing either!

I'm not a guy to run around calling for a coach to be fired or anything like that, but you have to look at the body of work and see if a guy is growing or not. Zimmer has a large body of work for the decision makers to assess, take a good hard look. Can he be the guy? So far, his teams have had a lot of games they simply weren't prepared to play, think Wade Phillips, great coordinator, not so much of a head coach.

Bingo! Although Phillips actually had defenses play really well in playoff games. Not sure Zimmer did as a DC.

Guys playing with confidence are unlikely to fumble.

This was a big revenge match for NO, Diggs and Theilen were probably thinking too much about the miracle play and chasing 100 yard records.

It may well be NOs' season, one last hurrah for Brees.

Still think the Vikes could win it all as a wildcard, Cousins has the talent, just need to get hot mid November on.

You don't remember what we had before Zimmer. Look at the growth of some of these guys....Kearse and Weatherly specifically.....and that was just this year. He is a very good coach. Peyton and McVay are good too....Zimmer beat both last year.

Richard Solomon.

Geoff, that is EXACTLY what I was saying over a month ago: Preifer is to Zimmer, as Richard Solomon was to Denny Green.

Denny was better off without Solomon, but still couldn't win it all. Zimmer might be similar, which is why I would consider Defilippo at HC, don't want to let him get away.
