Vikings' statement:

"We are heartbroken to hear about the passing of Adam Zimmer. Adam was a kind, respectful man, and over his years in Minnesota, it was evident he cared tremendously about his family, his players, his fellow coaches and the Vikings front office staff. Our thoughts are with Mike, Corri, Marki and the entire Zimmer family."

Just tragic... I hope it isn't what I suspect happened. This is really, really sad. Thoughts to the Zimmer family

I believe it is...just listened to PA's show from this morning, and without saying it he said it (as he found out about it yesterday afternoon).  I don't know what the specific reasoning was...and maybe we'll never know. 

In much lighter news...

News of the death of the former Minnesota Vikings assistant coach Adam Zimmer and son of ex-Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer stunned the football world Tuesday as his sister, Corri, confirmed her brother's passing in an emotional Instagram post. 

Mendota Heights Police Department confirmed that a man was found dead at a home on the 2500 block of Condon Court in Mendota Heights, after officers were called to conduct a welfare check at 1:13 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31. Dakota County property records confirm that Zimmer owned a home on the 2500 block of Condon Court, which is located about a mile from the Vikings' headquarters at TCO Performance Center in Eagan. 

The department says "there are no signs of foul play," and there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

let's remember that Adam's mother also just suddenly died, without any prior health problems. so it could be a genetic thing too.

The 40th anniversary of ‚ÄúThe Play‚ÄĚ is approaching, and John Elway knows that a lot of memories will resurface. But they won‚Äôt all be bad.

Elway, then playing his final college game, said it was a ‚Äúvery tough‚ÄĚ locker room afterward. But he admired how Paul Wiggin, then Stanford‚Äôs coach, did everything he could to try to get the play overturned or at least run again. There were questions about whether a California player‚Äôs knee had touched the ground when he had the ball, and about whether there were forward laterals.

Wiggin, 87, was fired by Stanford after the 1983 season and hired by the Vikings as defensive line coach in 1985. He moved into Minnesota’s front office in 1992 and remains as a senior consultant.

Kirk Cousins threw his 136th touchdown pass with Minnesota Sunday, surpassing Daunte Culpepper for third all-time in franchise history. Cousins now is behind Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton (239) and Tommy Kramer (159).

The Saints waived offensive lineman Wyatt Davis on Tuesday.

Davis joined the Saints off the Giants’ practice squad on Sept. 8. He played two offensive snaps in Week 5, his only action with the team.

Is this guy just really bad. At least we’re not the only ones who missed.
