Great hire for the Vikes.

Even better hire for the Ravens Wink

That said, Zimmer won't be bringing Norv to Minnesota with him because Norv will be too busy getting to know his new crew in Baltimore.

THIS shouldve been Detroit's hire.

Very good hire for the Vikes. With a better QB they may compete next year.

Minneapolis is much more desirable than Detroit.


Detroit was definitely the more desirable job. When you look at the rosters it's pretty obvious that they have a lot more elite talent than we do.


I just said otherwise Confused

Nice made up signature.

WHAT!!!! They lost their great young roster of players too... Crap


Great hire by the Vikes..IMO. Zimmer is a great D-coordinator and hopfeully for Minn he becomes a great head coach. It sucks to see him leave us, but he deserves the chance to be the man.
Since I don't really have a team in the NFC that I like, I will be rooting for Zimmer and the Vikes now.

Big fan of this move.

If they can find a decent QB, I fancy them to pose a threat in the NFC next year.


That would be great, but I'm guessing that we still have a couple years of rebuilding before we become a great team again. I hope you are right though. Smile

Nice. Very similar teams so don't get confused which one you're watching Laughing

I've been on both sides of the spectrum. There have been times when I was a huge homer, and lately, you are right that I've been somewhat pessimistic about the team.

It sounds like the hiring of Mike Zimmer as our head coach is definitely a step in the right direction. Now, as Kempes said, we just need to get a good quarterback and the rest of the roster spots are just a matter of time.

Great hire, I hope he surrounds himself with good coaches. I'm tired of boring and conservative defenses. This should be fun.
