  1. 1. Will Mike Zimmer be back after the 2020 season?

Barring a collapse I believe Zim is back. Wilfs has the same loyal mindset as Mara and Rooney.  I am happy Wilfs are making Rick/Zim sweat and earn their next contract. I do agree with everyone else about Zim need a strong draft ala the Saints 3 years ago. How can one coach have such bad luck with QBs

I said yes.  The Vikings need a dynamite draft this year and the sky is the limit!

 

Even a solid draft class and staying relatively healthy should keep us in playoff contention.

Yup. Pretty sure that was #FakeNews.

With Cousins extended I wonder if they'll do the same for Zimmer and Spielman (through the 2022-23 season?) to match Cousins.

I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I see an ugly season on the horizon.  I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with between 4-6 wins.  I like Coach Zimmer, but I think this was the offseason where the Wilfs should have moved on.  I hope I'm wrong...but we all know that never happens.  :P

This year:

They should have moved on from Zimmer at a minimum, not extended Cousins, trade Diggs if need be, trade Cook and trade up for the QBOTF with multiple 1st + , sit him one year behind Cousins, and start him in 2021.

I am moving on from Spielman before I move on from Zimmer, but I believe they should be a packaged deal. The Cousins deal was all about saving their jobs by giving the team enough cash now to not be completely handicapped.

Zig seems to give Rick so many passes, tho i agree Rick & Zim should be gone

That ain't gonna happen.  At worst, I see an 8-win season.  I look at our competition in the division and they haven't really gotten better either.  I have faith in the coaching staff that, while that can't turn water into wine, they can certainly turn it into pretty damn good beer.

I think we’re good enough at home to put together 4-6 wins from those games alone. Throw in a couple road wins, I think we’re looking 7-9 wins barring an unbelievable draft class.
