I've been as big of a proponent of Zimmer as anyone.

But at this point, what is the point? Zimmer is supposed to provide defense and toughness. He also talked big game about not making mistakes.

But now his team cant stop the run. They fumble the ball a ton. Give up big plays. Zimmer's defenses are supposed to be elite, and they have been mediocre.

Their offense is solid. But we dont need Zim for that.

If we fired Zim he would be at the top of every other team's list. That's a sign we're making a mistake. And we would replace him with who? Kubiak is not healthy enough to take over. Hiring random OC or DC X is a total crap-shoot.

This is a good team. Tonight sucked. Let's see what happens. If we end up 11-5 and make the play-offs, you can't fire a guy who's 58-37-1 and has made the play-offs 3 times.

Vikings defense is pretty mediocre this year. Hard to watch them get RUTM’d all the way down the field.

Not sure how they couldn’t get 3 yards in 3 plays on their last possession.

Losing Cook probably didn’t help. Cousins gave Irv Smith a catchable ball. Timing/route wasn’t quite there.

Also, Seattle is really good and were playing at home. And it was a night game two time zones to the west. Also lost the starting left OT. All that and we still were in it.

Still even could’ve had a Hail Mary at the end. But our special teams f__ed us.

14 seconds, no time outs. They wouldn't have even gotten into hail mary range.

Zim clung to too many of "his guys" on defense when he shouldn't have. Rhodes should have been released in the off-season. Griffin shouldn't have been brought back. They probably should have let Barr go to the Jets. The D will need to rebuild and get much younger.
