Why did the Mike Zimmer era ultimately fail to achieve its goal of bringing the Minnesota Vikings their first Super Bowl victory?
After eight full seasons, the Minnesota Vikings have officially fired head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer, himself, underwent several eye procedures during his time as Minnesota’s head coach. Before signing Cousins to his lucrative contract Zimmer’s Vikings were 12-20 against teams with a winning record.
In fact, Zimmer held an Eeyore-inspired presentation with the team where he highlighted all the adversity he faced in his tenure as Vikings head coach.
