With four games left on their 2021 schedule, have the decision-makers for the Minnesota Vikings already figured out the fate of Mike Zimmer?
When it comes to emotions, no team in the NFL has experienced more of them this season than the Minnesota Vikings. One can only imagine the toll the last few months have taken on the Vikings’ 65-year-old head coach, Mike Zimmer.
Heading into the season, Zimmer likely knew that his future in Minnesota was going to be on the line.
Did Zimmer possibly have a meeting with the Vikings’ owners shortly before his presser on Friday? If so, was he presented with the harsh reality that he probably won’t be Minnesota’s head coach in 2022?
At the very least, it wouldn’t be shocking to find out that the Vikings’ decision-makers presented Zimmer with a plan before the current season to let him go if the team fails to make the playoffs for the third time in four years.
