This past Tuesday, amidst a Snownami of ill repute, Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator, Mike Zimmer, received a second interview with the Minnesota Vikings in hopes to become their new head coach. He was seen early boarding a flight from Cincinnati (originally thought to just be leaving, because holy shit, Ohio), and was later seen being delivered to Winter Park in Minnesota (Video below!).
But beyond that, details of the interview have been sparse. Early speculation last week indicated Zimmer would only accept a head coaching position where he would have full control of player personnel decisions as well, essentially rendering current GM Rick Spielman's daily tasks moot (as if they weren't already). Since then, no word has crept out of the door, aside from the fact that Zimmer is a heavy favorite to land the job, thanks to his second interview.
Well, thanks to the amazing connections that Purple Jesus Diaries has access to, we've been granted details on how parts of the second interview between Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer went this week. Details after the jump ...
Rick Spielman: Hi Mike, thank you so much for coming in for a second interview. It's truly an honor. I'm excited to hear more about you and your qualifications that would make you the next great coach for the Minnes ...

I'm cautiously optimistic about this hire... although I have a bit of a Woody-Allen complex about it (e.g., "he can't be that good of a coach if he accepted a position with the Minnesota Vikings." (I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member). Good or bad, he won't be as big of a dumpster fire as Caldwell's going to be in Detroit... ha ha, stupid Lions fans.
turner has proven himself capable of running an offense. i wouldn't complain about that..now that they've replaced milquetoast they can move on and replace the derps.
@PJDiaries good shit
@Lakeville Mikey Good or bad, this is finally some new blood on the team that will be fun to write about. That makes it a win in my book!
@James Scott1 Thanks. Sorry about your ass.
